Happy Halloween Witch

Today is Halloween. So Happy Halloween to all of you goblins, witches, and ghouls! Since today is Halloween I want to share with you ALL of the Halloween projects that I have made and have yet to post. So here is the first one. I have four projects to share with you today so pop back in every once and a while to see the latest post! Here we go!
Here is the first card from the October Make and Take. Of course we HAD to do a Halloween Card! So I used the adorable set Out on a Limb to put together this cutie. Take a look:

Stamps: Out on a Limb, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Basic Grey, Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink: Black Stazon, Basic Black, So Saffron, Peach Parfait, Blush Blossom
Markers: Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade, Daffodil Delight, Sahara Sand, River Rock
Accessories: Blender Pen, Aqua Painter, Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, 2 ½” Circle Punch, 1” Circle Punch, XL Lace Border Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents.

The card base is Basic Grey cardstock cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”. The edges of the card were heavily sponged with Basic Black ink. Next a scrap of Lucky Limeade cardstock was punched with the XL Lace Border Punch. Five 1” Circles were punched from So Saffron cardstock and were adhered behind the Lucky Limeade lace. The lace was adhered to the right side of the card front and four rhinestones were added to the lace just to add a little sparkle.

Next a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock was cut at 2 ¾” x 4” and was run through the Big Shot in the Spider Web embossing folder. The edges of the cardstock were distressed and the texture was sponged with Basic Black ink before it was adhered to a piece of Basic Black cardstock cut at 3” x 4 ¼” that also had the edges distressed.

The witch from Out on a Limb was stamped in Black Stazon onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. The broom was stamped under the witch. Tip: It is much easier to stamp the witch first, then the broom… trust me. The witch was punched out with the 2 ½” Circle punch. The witch was colored in with markers. The skin was colored by squeezing the closed Blushing Bride ink pad, opening it half-way, and picking up just a little bit of the ink with an Aqua Painter. If you go over the line with the Aqua Painter, which is really easy to do, just color over it with the Blender Pen. After the witch and the broom are colored in I sponged the edges of the circle with Daffodil Delight ink all the way around, then I sponged just half-way around with Peach Parfait ink. The stamped circle was then adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Just to finish it off the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped in Basic Black ink on the bottom of the card front.

That’s all it took to create this adorable little witch! Check back later for more Halloween fun!
