One of the challenges, I participated in this week was to use the Buffalo Check stamp. I was not sure what stamp set I wanted to use but I knew I wanted to do the Buffalo Check in Gorgeous Grape.
I stamped several of the young witches from the Cauldron Bubble stamp set and colored them with the Stampin' Blends alcohol ink markers. I was struggling to make all the elements I wanted to use come together. So I asked my daughter, Anna, to take a look. She took a peek and moved a few things around and I loved it. As soon as I saw the witch in the middle of the web, I decided she would hold the spider in her hand.
I used the Buffalo Check stamp with Gorgeous Grape Classic Stampin' Ink on Highland Heather card stock. I mounted it on Gorgeous Grape. I stamped the witch on Thick Whisper White card stock and colored with the Blends. I die cut 4 spiderwebs and attached them to the card with glue dots to make one big web.
I used a pair of wire snips that are for beading to cut the little ring off the spider before I used a glue dot to adhere it. Now my little witch is all ready to give you a Halloween Treat.

Stampin' Up! Spirted Snowmen for Freshly Made Sketches 353
It's a sketch challenge this week over at Freshly Made Sketches. When I first saw this sketch my mind went blank. I have never designed a square card, however, after staring at it for a few minutes I began to see a snow drift.
I had recently designed a card for my Christmas stamp camp and I thought it would look great as a square and with a few enchantments.
I love the Spirted snowmen stamp set. It has 2 very different snowmen and this sweet little couple. I started by making all the elements that would have snow on them so they could dry while I worked on the rest of the card.
I cut out two different trees using the In the Woods Framelits dies that coordinate with the Winter Woods from Mossy Meadow cardstock and a snow hill from some Whisper White using a die from the same set For the snow, I used the shimmery white embossing paste. I dabbed it on to both layers of my tree and the edge of my snowy hill
I used the new Corrugated Embossing folder on a piece of crumb cake cardstock. I daubed ink on the edges to give it an aged looked
I stamped a piece of crumb cake cardstock with the Buffalo Check stamp using Merry Merlot and I distressed the edge of the paper and daubed it with a bit of crumb cake ink.
I used the Stampin'' Blends alcohol ink markers to color my snow couple and then I used a heavy coat of Wink of Stella to make them glisten like freshly fallen snow.
I assemble the card with tear and tape and dimensionals.
