Ding Dong, the Wicked Witch...

     OK, now that I know that song is running firmly through your mind and will for the rest of the day, I want to share with you two versions of a card I did using my newest Cheery Lynn Halloween dies, including the sentiment which I did my best to feature on each card.  Everything on both cards was cut from leftover snippets of CS.


     This is the card with a black background and the main part of the witch cut from purple CS with orange inlays.  The sentiment (Cheery Lynn) is the negative part of the die cut trimmed into a rectangle with a die from QuicKutz.

     My second card uses the same witch die but I cut off the top part of the skirt and cut that piece from orange CS, layered onto purple background which had one corner punched with a Fiskar's punch.  This time the background just shows through the stockings; no inlay done.


     For the sentiment, I used the cut outs from the previous card's sentiment and layered those onto a stitch circle die cut (Die-namics) which I trimmed to fit the upper part of this card.  Everything was put onto green card CS and that was added to a white card blank.

     I know I've been MIA for a few days, but I'm just overwhelmed with civic duties (serving on a jury for a trial which may last as much as 5 to 6 weeks) and my only down time is on the weekends so crafting must necessarily share with or give way to some household chores and grocery shopping.  It's like suddenly being "Un"retired!  :-D  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
