Too [stinkin'] Cute to Spook

Too Cute to Spook is the name of this My Favorite Things' set in the September release and it's now available. I love it!!! It truly is just too cute!!! You can see lots of samples from this new release if you take the blog hop. Start at Kim's blog and you're on your way!

Today starts a new week at MFT Member Company Forum at SCS and that means a new sketch challenge and a new My Favorite Challenge. Hop on over there and get all the deets. I'm using this week's sketch for this card and it's a fun one!
I first stamped the tree (all images are stamped on Perfect Paper Panels) and the fence panels twice, and lastly the bats (on what was to be the bottom image). Then I used my Copic air brush system and added the grass and the orange "glow" in the sky. I stamped the little witch twice, colored her, and cut her out, the cat once, and glued them in place on the bottom image.

I then carefully cut one tree out with a circle Nestabilities die, matted it with Basic Black, added the second cut-out witch, and popped the whole thing up on 3M foam squares.

After the main image was done and matted with Basic Black, I used Basic Black, Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie, and Halloween striped paper for the base card. The horizontal element is Basic Black with Elegant Eggplant "goo", made with a Martha Stewart punch. Craft store ribbon tied on with a black button and Perle cotton finish that off. I stamped the sentiment on Pumpkin Pie with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, cut it into individual words, and glued them on. I totally LOVE this card--hope you do too!

I'm so glad you stopped by today!
