Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Best Witches edition! The "Crew" is a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world who pick a stamp set or bundle to highlight on the first and third Mondays of each month, with a bonus hop if there is a fifth Monday. If you landed here from Betty's blog, welcome! There are four of us today, and I know there are going to be some adorable cards to inspire you!
Best Witches is a seven piece cling stamp set with two adorable witches, a cute little frog (maybe a prince in disguise?), a scattering of stars and some Halloween-y sentiments. It doesn't have coordinating dies, unfortunately, so I did a bit of fussy cutting for the cards I'm sharing today. I could have stamped the witches on a stitched label, but where's the fun in that?
The first card has the witch toiling over her cauldron and the frog giving her the side-eye because he used to be a prince. 😉
She doesn't look too concerned, does she? The brick wall behind her is Basic Gray matted on Highland Heather before affixing to the Parakeet Party card base. Her hat and cauldron are Smoky Slate.
I loved having matching In Color Matte Dots to pop on the background and add an escaping bubble above the cauldron.
The second card is my favorite. The frog peeking out from the background just cracks me up! I don't think his "Boo!" startled her at all.
The greeting was made with the Alphabest stamp set, since "Boo" wasn't included in Best Witches. I used both embossing folders in the Stripes & Splatters 3D set. You can emboss a larger sheet than the approximate 3 inch width of the folder by running it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine twice, and moving the cardstock over.
Rather than use the In Color Matte Dots on this card, I chose the gray ones in the Classic Matte Dots.
