Witch Feet?

Good Morning everyone I hope your all having a great week.

The card that I have today uses DRS designs 

New Halloween Stamps.

I started by stamping Witch Feet? and colored her with copic markers, then I walked away I do this a lot when I can't get a card to come together. Then it came to me what I wanted to do for the background, dot's. I used V 04,06,09. I used a square spellbinder die and cut her out. A black layer was added with my perfect layers. And I walked away again. This card just would not work for me. I walked into my craft room the next morning to have a look and started laughing the only thing I could think of was Her spell went awry, and she was cleaning up.

So after all that it came together, really fast and I was very happy with the finished card.

The purple layer was stamped with the Large Original Plaid and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used a square die to cut the flag. 
For the green strip I used my all time favorite background stamp the
Polka Dot Background.

I stamped the 
 Halloween Shoe Fits Greeting 
Then I did the dot background with Copic in
YG 05,07
The hat is from the
It was colored and fussy cut.

I hope you like her as much as I do.

Christmas Village Snow Globe

For today card I wanted to make a Snow Globe card, so I started think about snow globes. When my daughter was in high school she collected Disney Snow Globes they were so pretty she got one every Christmas until well after she was married and said that she was running out of room to keep them. They are so pretty and the pretties ones have things on the outside not just in the globe. So this is what got me started.

I started by stamping the base from the Snow Globe stamp, I needed the base to be larger so I used the stamp a ma jig to line up the to sides. It was colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut. Then I stamped the Christmas Village Pond and colored it with copic markers this was also fussy cut. Then I stamped the globe image I stamped the Pine Tree Snowdrifts   and the Snowman from the Christmas Village four in one  Accessories set. The Christmas Village House and the Trees were stamped and colored with copics then fussy cut. Lots of glitter glue and flower soft was added. Pop dots were used to attach everything. A while jell pen was used to add snow to the trees and sky. For the Tag on the front I used the Christmas Multi Greeting. The background was embossed in a embossing folder.

( I just could not get a good pic)

This is colors that I used,

Have a Wonderful Day,
