Let's get Wicked!!! CTMH August SOTM Blog Hop

I'm so excited to be posting my very first project with the newly released SOTM sets from the new Fall/Winter Idea Book!! I'm so looking forward to see what everyone has posted both with this stamp set and with new product....Let's get started!

If you have come to my blog from Krista's Blog, you are on the right track. Just check out my card and gifty item and then you will find the link to the next creator's blog at the end of my post.



First I created a 8 X 3 1/2 Halloween card with the August SOTM "Wicked." Loved many of the stamps and sentiments in this one, but was drawn to the cute little black cat. I carefully cut out said cat and then proceded to break out my new B & T paper in the "Mischief" paper pack and cut out swatches which I staggered on my pear CS base. Using the Wicked Halloween sentiment I triple matted it and placed it on the card. I popped up my little kitty and used some black satin ribbon for a little shine and then took some Halloweeen cobwebs and strategically placed it on the card to add dimension and mystery. I was so pleased with how it turned out and looks like I will be making more as my friend who was scrappin' with me offered to buy it after I posted!

For my gifty item, I used the old stand-by covered chocolate bar with some retired B & T and then used the "Hats off to You" sentiment and cut out a cute little mortar board so I could make gifts for my husband and his classmates who decended on my house Saturday night to celebrate finishing their Master's degrees in Education!!! I'm so proud of him and who doesn't like chocolate, right?




A little detail shot...



Ok, that's it for me, but now it is time to head on over to Wendy's Blog and see what crafting awesomeness she has to share!

See you soon.......Terrie
