I just couldn’t resist creating this card for a swap I’m participating in with fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the U.S.  For my swap I chose the Cauldron Bubble Bundle. Not only can you stamp the images, color them and cut them out, but many of them are in the DSP.  And guess what?  The dies match the paper.  How quick and easy is that?

Don’t say Witch like it’s a bad thing. Isn’t she just the sweetest and the star of this show.  The color palette for this card is Gorgeous Grape, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Granny Apple Green and Whisper White.  I just love the new colors that Stampin’ Up! has added to our color families.

It was sort of difficult to photograph the new Black Foil paper, but believe me it’s so shiny and makes a great impact.  The Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder was the perfect touch to bring in a little of a spooky feel.

I sure do hope that my video tutorials are helpful. I would love to hear your feedback. Come in for a spell, sit back, relax, I’m as happy as a witch in a broom factory to share this one with you.
