Hold on to your cauldron's girls, the witch is back with her adorable familiars in tow!

I suspect I will be making quite a few cards with this sweet little witch.  For this project I chose to add a couple of pumpkins and her frog (tried to turn him into a cute toad)

The new version of the stamp has been updated with additional sentiments and a matching open style die set which are both compatible with the previously released version (if you were lucky enough to get it)

You know me by now, I couldn't resist giving her a name because "Winnie" will be appearing alongside her batty friend in my Copic Classes this October.
There are only a few spaces left on Sunday 15th October - so if you'd like to create an awesome Halloween card with me whilst gaining confidence and learning new techniques with your Copic markers (which of course you can now buy at mftstamps.com and in store) then sign up soon, you'll not want to miss this class!!

I hope that all of you who had been requesting the return of this fantastic stamp set are jumping for joy.......I was, especially knowing I could use her for my pre-Halloween class, woo hoo!!

And have you seen the new card kit that is also being released today?

When your crafting mojo has gone walk about and you have that urge to create something but haven't got a clue where to start why not take a look at the Weekly Sketch Challenge at My Favorite Things - a new one is posted every Wednesday HERE.

Not only do we provide oodles of inspiration to get those creative juices flowing again, but if you join in the challenge and we really hope you do, then you have the chance of winning a $50 Gift Voucher to mftstamps.com

Anyway here is my interpretation of Sketch 346

As you can see there is very little Copic colouring..........just the grey stripe and around the edge of the teeny weeny spider in the middle of the maze.

The spider/web background was created using the awesome Fab-BOO-lous Friends - I simply randomly stamped the web and spider images all over a pre-cut piece of Cement Gray card using Blueprints 31 with MFT Hybrid Cement Gray ink.

Can you see the tiny spider in the centre, well he is actually the background spider stamped on to a piece of shrink plastic.  I coloured him with black pencil, trimmed around him and then shrank him with a heat gun.  Now, that stuff is a little hit and miss for me, sometimes I get great results and on occasions I've ended up with a blob of melted plastic - this time thankfully it worked!

What do you think of the maze's we have in the store - cool aren't they and they fit inside our awesome round shaker pouches, so you don't have to mess around with acetate and foam tape.  I opted for black but we have white and even a multi-colour pack.

Now to cut out the circle I used the window part of the Circle Shaker Window and Frame die, but I omitted to cut out the frame - I wanted a much cleaner look for this card.  Oh and the circle I cut out, well I fitted in the pouch, maze and ball bearing and then carefully replaced the circle, with the spider glued into the centre, mindful to line up the stamping - I then taped it all in place.  

And by the way no-one is too old for a maze card.......when I showed my husband what I'd created he sat there playing with it until he had got the little ball bearing into the middle & hit the spider!!

Anyway, it's over to you guys - it's a really fun sketch this week!
Have a go, you never know you may be the lucky winner and get a $50 voucher to spend in the MFT store!

Thanks for dropping by

I wanted to share something from this new release..........
someone, by the name of Ruby (you know, that pesky photobombing chicken) saw the 
Written in the Stars stamp set and Shining Stars dies and got so excited!!

Just look what that show off has been up to.......posing on the haystacks!

As a farmer's wife, I am spending quite some time in harvested fields.......so it seemed appropriate to incorporate one in my card.

I kept this one far more simple, just a single die which I double cut for extra depth, a simple sentiment - it's not showing up too well in the photograph above sadly (much clearer in the larger photo below) and of course Ruby, coloured with Copics!

My April students will be able to do this one, I used the same techniques that I taught them in class.........now there's a challenge.........come on guys, I'd love to see you having a go!!
And you know that chicken will be thrilled to see herself on your cards!
