Cute Little Witchy

Hey all, its Sunday already and the weekend is never long enough. I'm not sure what the day will bring since my oldest was in bed of his own accord at 7pm last night complaining of tiredness and a soar throat. He NEVER does that! I had planned for us to go down and visit my Mom who is recovering from surgery, but I don't want to take a sick child to be around her right now. So we shall see.

Anyway, here is a card a did the other day with a Hero Arts stamp that I found at Michaels the other day. Wow, they (at least mine) have totally revamped their stamp section. I was blown away. They had a whole bunch of the newer Hero Arts stamps (wood block) like all the birds, trees, etc as well as a large display of the Clear Inkadinkado stamps. I had to get a couple of those, although I just found out a few days ago that Costco is carrying several bundles of the Inkadinkado stamps for way cheap. Fear not, I at least got mine with a coupon.

Well, back to this cute little Witchy stamp. I saw her and just thought she was the cutest. I stamped her and then colored her in with my Copics, but there are lots of little spaces so I filled those in with my Copic Spica Atyou Glitter Pens. (I LOVE those and my MIL ordered the set from Ellen Hutson). I did stamp the little pumpkin separately, cut, and then pasted it on. The background polka dots were achieve with another all time favorite set of mine from Papertrey ink - Polka Dot Basics. Then added some more bling with the Kaisercraft Rhinestones. I used my Fiskars Threading Water punch for the scallops and finished the card off with my Uniball White Gel Pen. Oh, and of course my Scallop Nesties Punch. I added a close up so you can see the glitter from the pens. They really are a must have.

That's it for me today. If you haven't left me a comment yet for my Stickles blog candy above, make sure you do. They are a great addition and you just can't too many colors.

I love this card and have come to look at it several times, and have been trying to find the stamp. No luck locally but I did find it on ebay and I should be getting it in the mail today. I realize Halloween is over, but crafting and cardmaking know no such restrictions!

And, of course, I'm going to blatantly copy your card!!
