Keep Calm and Cackle On

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are having a wonderful weekend!!  The weather here in my neck of the woods, is absolutely beautiful cool and no humidity.  I hope you were able to join Sparkle N Sprinkle for their October Reveal, there were 6 stamp sets to be won.  I gave you a sneak peek of a card to come and here it is!!

This is made with the new Cackle On stamp set just released.  To start my card I needed to create the bold moon for that cute little witch.  

I started with this ink and a sponge dauber to create the outer ring of the moon.

Next came the spiced marmalade and it was blended with the violet.

Here is the finished moon.

Next came the background for the card.  Using a piece of white cardstock, and several distress ink pad the background colors were added to the cardstock.  HERE is a tutorial for this technique.  

Once the background color was achieved it was embossed using Tim Holtz's spider web folder.  Using a blending sponge black ink was sponged on top of the raise portion of the spider web.

Using Spellbinder's Circle Dies, a circle was cut from the background.  The witch was stamped with versamark and embossed using Black Detail EP.  The moon layer was placed underneath the background layer.  Using a glue pen around the edge of the moon glitter was added using Orange Surprise glitter.

To create the embellishment I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using versamark and Black Detail EP.  It was then punched with a circle punch, inked.  A second circle was punched from purple CS and offset behind the sentiment.  Ribbons were added.

Thanks so much for stopping by, over the next few days the final 2 project from the October Reveal will be revealed!!  Hope you will come on back to see all the details!!  

Have a wonderful weekend and remember....Keep Stamping!
