Come Fly Away With Me

Have you seen the New Crafty Secrets Halloween Fun stamp set? I absolutely LOVE IT!! The little witch is so adorable! You can see the Halloween Fun stamp set by clicking HERE. The stamp set has 24 images (including sentiments) which gives you lots of options.

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~
