Krafty Vault - My Best Friends are Witches


The Krafty Vault is being opened again!

As you know some of our old stamp sets have been retired and hard to find for quite some time. Well, we've opened the krafty vault and today we are rereleasing MY BEST FRIENDS ARE WITCHES!!!

This fantastic and spooky set comes as completely unmounted pretrimmed natural red rubber! There are only a FEW available right away and then we will be taking preorders for this fabulous set!

For my card I used the no lines technique and it turned out absolutely amazing! I really do find this technique challenging however it is really great to use it and the images look fantastic!

For the cauldron and the smoke I pop dotted them from a second image which I had fussy cut out, this was to provide a bit more depth to the image. I used a black Doodlebug Doily in the bottom right hand corder as well. This doily is one of the minis.

I also decided I wanted to decorate the inside of the card with one of the cute sentiments from the set. I placed several flags, one of which with the sentiment on top of  a puff from the smoke which I strategically stamped and coloured.

I am super excited to show you what I created using the new sets this month.

Our first set this month is by artist, Cheryl Grant!

This set is full of scene building elements to create amazing designs!
Of course Lulu is the center of attention along with a fun wagon which you can fill with
some of the other images like pumpkins, puppies and kitties!!


I chose to work with Lulu and some pumpkins.
First I stamped Lulu and masked her using a post it note. then I stamped
two sets of the pumpkins behind her. Kinda reminds me of when I went to the pumpkin
patch to pick out our Halloween pumpkins.

Paper is by Carta Bella (Fall Blessings); twine ribbon; flowers; pebbles enamel dots; and dress it up buttons (tiny raking leaves)

Check out Lulu and her pals in action as you hop around the Krafty blogs today! You'll see the list of Krafty design team members and Krafty Guests below and be sure to leave some love at each stop because one lucky commenter is going to WIN a gift voucher to the krafty shop!
