  • The Basic Black Layer is 5 x 3 3/4.
  • The narrow Gorgeous Grape layer is 4 3/4 x 2 1/2.
  • The Whisper White on which the Marbled Background is stamped with Gorgeous Grape ink is 4 1/2 x 2 1/4.
  • The bats are punched with the new Spooky Bats Punch and Basic Black cardstock.

Take Your Pick Tool
I wanted to share with you a video describing the new Take Your Pick Tool that is in the 2018 Holiday Catalog from Stampin' Up!  

The tool arrived in a plain, craft brown box, and I decided that would not do.  So I found a video on YouTube by Liz Yuille, to make a decorated box for my new special tool.  You can see Liz's video Here.  
Here is a picture of the one I made (and it looks just like Liz's.)

Cauldron Bubble
I had so much playing with the Cauldron Bubble stamp set and the coordinating Cauldron Framelits Dies.  I made some extra time to color and design.  (I am not sure how anyone can "make extra time", though, I sure try my best.)
My inspiration from this card came from Linda Cullen.  Her blog is Crafty Stampin' and you can see her card Here, post of September 7, 2018.  
Recipe:
  • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Pumpkin Pie, scored at 4 1/4.
  • The Basic Black layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The Toil & Trouble layer is 5 x 3 3/4.
  • The Whisper White layer is 4 x 3.
  • I made my own floor with Smoky Slate ink and a stamp from the Waterfront stamp set.  I think that Helena the witch, ought not to stand in mid-air, though, she could if she wanted to, because after all she's a witch, right? 
  • Helena and the little frogs are stamped with Stazon Black ink on Whisper White cardstock, colored with Stampin' Blends and cut out with the Cauldron Dies. The cauldron and Bruno, the cat, are also cut out with the Cauldron Dies and the DSP from Toil & Trouble.  
  • All done, and remember to decorate your envelope.
