Here is a card I made using the Crafty Secrets Halloween Fun stamp set, Earthy Paper Designs Pad & Halloween Time Vintage Cuts.I used the corner elements and the stripe to give the appearance of a opening to a room. All of the images were stamped using Adirondack Pitch Black ink by Ranger and colored using Copic markers. For the corner elements and the stripe I stamped then unto Cryogen White CS, colored and then cut each piece out. Then I used clear silicone adhesive on each piece to pop them up. Here is a close up...For the sweet little witch I stamped her twice and colored the first image, on the second image I colored just the hat. I cut out both pieces and layered the hat using the clear silicone adhesive. Here is a close up of the witch...I also used the clear silicone adhesive behind the body or the spider and the cat. The picture of the witch on the broom is one of the vintage images from Crafty Secrets Halloween Time Vintage Cuts. I layers CS behind the picture and added some ribbon and a brad to give the appearance of a poster. The ribbon I used for this was black and white and I wanted to change it to orange so I colored it in using a orange Copic marker. The sentiment "Come Fly Away With Me", was cut from newsprint and and then I stamped some bats in the background. For the spider's web I stamped that onto a piece of vellum and then ran it through the xyron.
For the base of the card I used WorldWin CS in an Orange and layered with a Purple. All of the stamped images are mounted onto a piece of Crafty Secrets Earthy DP. I also added some ribbon on the side and tied it into a bow. The ribbon is from Heidi Grace, Daydreamers Ribbon and I think it goes perfectly with the colors on the card. I also added some rhinestones for a little bling. Here is a little tip...instead of buying several different colors of rhinestones you can just buy the clear ones and color them using your Copic markers. The rhinestone on this card were colored with the Copic markers. Also to add a little sparkle I used Spica glitter pens on the stamped images.
Here is another picture ( a side view) of the card so you can see the dimension.Supplies~

I really love using the JustRite Stampers! There are so many possibilities with all of the different fonts and little frames. The JustRite Stampers really allows you to be able to personalize your design. October will be here before we know it and I'm sure many of you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So I thought I would get a head start on some cards for a few friends. I used the Small Letter set from JustRite Stampers for the "Think Pink" on the outer edge of the Classic Circle Nestabilities and added the Petite Scallop Circle behind it. The Just Rite Stampers are fantastic with the Spellbinders Circle Nestabilites and they are a perfect match! The other stamped images are from Crafty Secrets Support the Girls and Cherubs stamp sets. The vintage image is also from Crafty Secrets Girlfriends~Images & Journal Notes. The black dots around the edge were done with a marker and then I also added metal embellishments, stickles and some rhinestones for a little sparkle and bling.
Thanks so much for stopping by today & I hope you are having a wonderful week!

I want to also say Congratulations to Marisa Grossman and Vivian Peters, they were also chosen to join the Crafty Secrets Design Team!! I look forward to getting to know each of the ladies from the design team!
Here is a card that I recently made using some of the Crafty Secret images. I used images from the Cherish and Sweet Kids stamp sets.One of the great advantages to the clear stamps is being able to line them up very easily. I used five stamps to create this scene, the little boy, little girl, large branch, small branch and a cluster of flowers. The coloring was done using Copic sketch markers. After all of the images were colored in then I masked off the images and colored in the grass and the sky using the Copic markers and the Copic air brush system. Then I lightly misted over the entire piece with a pearl mist (Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink refill, Gold Perfect Pearls & water). I know this didn't show up in the picture but it has a very pretty light shimmer to it. I stamped the sentiment on to one of the tag images from the Crafty Secrets Classic paper pad, added the pearl mist and inked the edges. I also added the ribbons, lace, flower, buttons & metal embellishments and assembled as shown. Once the card was all assembled then I added a little touch of glitter with some diamond stickles.
