If you are visiting my blog today as part of the Inky Fingers’ a•muse | studio Autumnal Splendor blog hop, welcome, so glad you stopped by.  You should have come from Pamela’s blog.  If not, you should start from the beginning with Liz’s blog until you come to my blog.  Hasn’t it been fun seeing everyone’s take on Autumnal Splendor?  What inspiration.   

In the midst of Autumn, comes Halloween and you can’t have Halloween without a witch.  For today’s card, I used goodies from the 2011 a muse| studio Holiday and Inspiration Catalog.  I just love this witch from the a•muse | studio creepy hollow exclusive stamp set and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on her.  I stamped the witch onto Sleepy Hollow paper using Memento black ink and then used my quickie glue pen and covered her with our new onyx glitter.  I let that dry for a few minutes and then I fussy cut her out and popped her up using foam tape.  I love glitter and always say, you can never have too much glitter.

My card base and the moon is our pumpkin card stock.  I also love our new Sleepy Hollow paper and cut a piece of that slightly smaller than my card base, 4″ by 5 1/4″ and flat adhered it on top of my pumpkin card base.  I used a 1″ circle punch for the moo.  Did you know that a full orange moon is considered a Harvest moon.  Have you ever looked up in the sky at night during the fall/winter and saw a full moon that looks orange?  I used our orange and currant inks and inked them on the outside of the moon to give it some depth.  I adhered it to the card and then stamped the bats, from our to cute to spook stamp set, off the moon.  I cut a one inch by four inch  strip of our new slate wood grain paper and tied our onyx baker’s twine a couple of times around and tied it in a knot and left a tail.  I used a mini pop dot behind to hold the knot onto the card.  If you use a little pop dot behind the ribbon it helps hold it.  Thanks for that tip, Liz.  I then flat adhered it to the sleepy hollow paper. 

You can find all the products I used on this card and others, on my web site.  This concludes our Autumnal Splendor Inky Finger’s first team blog hop.  Thanks for stopping by and hope that you enjoyed it and got some inspiration.  Remember, do something creative today.
