Hey Pumpkin, Best Witches!

Happy Halloween!

I'm squeezing in the last of my Halloween projects just under the wire! I'm sad to see it go...creating for this holiday is so much fun. But of course, there's always next season...and more wonderful holidays are on their way.

I've got two projects to share with you today. The first is a "Best Witches" card showing off this past Friday's "Witch Girl" digi. And remember my goal to make something with each and every stamp set that my PayPal addiction has brought to my mailbox lately? Well, one of those sets was a Halloween set, so I wanted to squeeze that one in tonight too!

First up, "Best Witches"...
I printed the "Witch Girl" on SU! Sahara Sand, colored her with markers, cut the ends like a banner and added layers of Halloween-y papers, buttons, and twine.

Close up of the "Witch Girl" coloring:

A scalloped edge, a few buttons, a touch of twine...


Next, we have "Hey Pumpkin"!
The "Haunted" stamp set from Cosmo Cricket is such quirky fun...I just love the crazy pumpkin and the non-scary skeleton that is waving at his pumpkin friend. The base on this 4"x4" ornament is a scrap of cardboard covered in pattern paper. The skeleton was embossed in Zing Opaque White, the pumpkin stamped in SU! Pumpkin Pie, then embossed in Zing Clear powder.

Kind of spooky how the skeleton seems to be glowing in this photo:
