Witch Craft

  I'm teaching a tag class tomorrow at a local paper craft store, The Cutting Garden. This is the tag the ladies will be making.
  The lovely witch is a Prima Doll Stamp. She is entirely paper pieced, right down to her black suede boots! 
  Lots of stuff on this tag! The cat is so precious! It's a die cut from Memory Box. The mice (front and back), is a Martha Stewart edge punch. Same for the wrought iron fence. Tim Holtz Bricks Texture Fade. The adorable moon is from The Graphic Fairy image site.
  This is the back of the tag:

Entering this tag in:
1. Our Creative Corner: It's Halloween - Let's Tag It On!
2. Simon Monday Challenge: Spooky
3. Simon Wednesday Simon Says: Halloween or Halloween Colours

  Was hoping to get more Halloween tags and cards done, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen! Hope you have a fabulous weekend with friends and family and as always, thanks for stopping by and leaving a word or two! Muchly appreciated!

Birthday Butterfly Wishes

 I seem to be collecting dress form stamps and die cuts lately. Did you notice I said "collecting" and not "using"?! I do admit, I LOVE rubber stamps! There are so many dress forms stamps and dies out now. They make really nice vintage or shabby cards.
 I made this birthday card for Mike's aunt Janette. Shabby chic, wouldn't you say?

 This dress form stamp is called "Daisy Dress Form" and it's from Impression Obsession. Did some paper piecing (my favourite thing to do!). I stamped it first onto the background paper I wanted for the card. Then stamped it again on some pink/peach paper from the same set ; cut out and glued. Did the same for the butterfly, only I glued it down in the centre and folded wings up.

"Butterfly Wishes" stamp is from Stamping Bella

Papers used are from the KaiserCraft 6 1/2 paper pad set called, Sweet Nothings. Flower punch is MS Hydrangea; large and med/small punches

Inside. Sentiment stamp is Tim Holtz. Happy Birthday is Michaels. Crown stamp is from a Prima set.

 Taking a vacation day today to prepare for a tag class I'm teaching at my fav papercraft store,  The Cutting Garden. But first I better get the pot roast in the slow cooker. Yummy!

Have a fabulous day! The weekend is coming up! Get crafty!

- Flowers are from the Autumn Leaves Doodle Bloom set
- Pennant stamp (girl is sitting on is from the Crafty Secrets ClearStamps Artsy Banners set ; stamped on music paper then cut out
- Sentiment is from the Stampavie Suzi Blu set, A Creative Life
- Large star is designed by Jo Capper-Sandon and is available at Stampotique

Other stuff:
- rub-ons, stencils tissue tape, Glimmer Mists, TH circle fragment (over the flower, which you can't see really from the photo), drywall tape, crepe paper, Distress Stain Picket Fence.
- the butterfly is cut from the TH Tissue Roll. The heart was cut out free hand.
