I generally stamp my Halloween cards a week or so prior to Halloween, but I'd picked up this BEAUTIFUL black DP at my LSS this past Saturday and thought it would lend itself nicely to a peek-a-boo cutout of a moon. With the full moon you've GOTTA have a witch on broom silhouette stamp - I got this little beauty last fall from StampDiva.com and I just checked - she's still available for $2.75 unmounted (no affiliation with the shop; just another satisfied customer). Which makes me wonder; what do my readers prefer: mounted or unmounted stamps? Let me know via a comment below by Sunday and you'll be entered into a drawing for some stamped silhouette witch images. I'm out of this pale yellow now but I can find other colors to use from my stash. I'm frugal (ok, cheap ...) and often just use regular Scotch 2-sided tape to mount unmounted stamps onto my acrylic blocks to stamp. But I digress ... Then I dug out my ol' Creative Memories circle cutter and placed it over the DP, being VERY careful to only cut thru the background and leave all the branches intact, and glued the yellow moon behind the DP onto my card base. I used both black and white ink for the outside sentiment, creating a shadow-like effect. Spooky, eh?! Nah! Easy peasy!
