Cute Witch 07479
For my first card, I put this super cute little witch from the Halloween Pops set into my Misti, stamped her with Memento & colored her with Copics. To add a little interest, I used the blender to add polka dots to her dress. Then I over stamped the image with Versafine (this really brings out the details!) & die cut with a stitched rectangle. I had to do a little out of the box treatment to keep from cutting off her hat & broom & I also trimmed the edges a little closer. The moon & top of the cauldron were stamped with white ink onto the black c/s & the dp strips are all from the same sheet…I just used a few areas of it. I added some orange stickles to her belt & hat band & crystal stickles to the moon.

Here’s a look at the inside, using leftover strips & below it are the Copics I used.

Hocus Pocus cu 07490
For this card, I used the fun new Hocus Pocus image. Usually, I color first then see if I have paper to match, but I picked the paper first on this one so I could use Copics to go with it. I love open areas on words…it gives me a lot of opportunity to change the colors to suit.

After stamping, coloring & over stamping, I die cut it..but I had to do a little resizing (pls click link for explanation) to make it fit, so the panel is now much longer than the actual die. It’s backed w/ a vanilla rectangle layer & I added some of the die cut Creepy Wreath on top & bottom. A few bats & a cat from the wreath set were also added.

You can probably see it better in the pic above..I added some Wink of Stella to the colored areas. I wanted a little sparkle but I didn’t want to cover all the coloring. Here’s a look at the inside & also the Copics I used.
