Cute Little Witch

Here's another card using Greeting Card Kids for Halloween; my first one is HERE.  You can see that this cute little witch looks great either colored in or not!  On this particular card, I used Watercolor Paper along with Stampin' Write Markers and an Aqua Painter — simply add just a bit of color from the markers and blend.  This is my favorite technique for getting a nice shaded image.  Just don't forget to use a Jet Black StazOn Ink Pad to stamp your image – any other ink will run when moistened with the Aqua Painter.  The sentiment is from Grateful Greetings and I used those same markers direct to the stamp to get a multi-colored greeting.  The bats in the corner are from Wicked Cool.  There are so many fun new accessories in the Holiday Mini Catalog!  I love the new Raven 1/2" Lace Trim that I tied around a piece of designer paper from the Wicked Fun Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.  The circle motif has Waffle Paper around the edges of the punched out circles and a Black Glimmer Brad in the center.  My color scheme is Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Cajun Craze and Basic Black.

In Color Strips and New MDS Ribbon Dowloads

When I finished making my 4"x4" cards on my previous post, I had these 1/2" strips left over and just had to make them useful!  Here's a very simple card showcasing all of the In Colors.  The sentiment is from a brand new stamp set called Grateful Greetings.  You may remember it from one of the previous mini catalogs.  Well, it's back in the new 2010-11 Idea Book & Catalog just in time for the Fall holidays.  Most of the stamps contained in this great set are Thanksgiving or Halloween sentiments, but I think this sentiment works all year long!  I stamped it on Whisper White card stock then punched it out with the 1-3/4"x7/8" Large Oval Punch then mounted it with Dimensionals to Basic Black card stock punched with the Scallop Oval Extra-Large Punch.

TIP:  While the Basic Black ink is a good choice for stamping sentiments, I really prefer our StazOn Jet Black Ink.  It stamps crisper and sharper and you never have to worry about smudges or dry time.
