Vintage Witch 12x12 Home Decor

Welcome to the Close to my Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring August's totally awesome Stamp of the Month called "Wicked".   If you have come here from Debra's blog, you are on the right path!  This is a circular hop so to see all 60+ participating sites, just click on the link at the end of each post to keep hopping along!

When I pulled this set out of the box I just fell in love with the incredibly funky images and how the stamps themselves were laid out on the carrier sheet.  That puzzle block layout plus an awesome layout using Mischief in the new Idea Book inspired this piece. 


This is part of my new home decor series which is a 12x12 scrapbook frame display in my front room dedicated to seasonal / holiday layouts. I started this piece prior to my new papers arriving so wasn't able to use the new Mischief papers (which I adore) so I used the colors from those papers instead. After my order arrived on Friday I was able to use our new Cricut cartridge (OMG that thing is cool) to make the Colonial White roses that accent the corners of the frame.


Here is a close up of the center square to see the puzzle layout better if you'd like to make a copy for yourself.  You can see I used a little watercolor pencil on the witch to color her arms and legs in Gray Wool and under her hat in Orange to coordinate with the papers and jazz up her up.


Materials Used:
Paper:  Felicity (retired - for the Barn red shaped piece - now I can cut the same shape using my Art Philosophy cartridge!), CS in Black, Colonial White, Gray Wool, Desert Sand
Stamps:  Wicked
Other:  Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, Licorice Opaques, Black Embossing Powder, Watercolor Pencils, Black Designer Ribbon Rounds, Stipple Brush from Texture Tools, Black Sharpie (for faux stitching), 12x12 scrapbook frame from Michael's

Now head on over to Katy's blog and see what she's created for you with this fun and funky stamp set! 

If you'd like to get a little "Wicked" then head on over to my website at Paige.MyCTMH.com prior to August 31st to pick up this set!  You can purchase it outright for just $17.95 OR you can get it for $5 with any $50 order!
