Good Witch Bad Witch Time

Who doesn't remember as a child being mesmerized by
Glinda the Good Witch and the Wicked Witch of
the West? 

Well here Sophie gets to play both parts! 
What fun these two stamps are.  So many uses for
them too.  From Princess parties to Halloween
these are perfect!

Glinda's card is made of Kaiser Craft paper and embossed
with the Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug embossing folder.
The flower is a hand made scrunchie style flower
with Spellbinder accents from the Floral Accents and
Fleur De Lis Pendant sets.  Ovals were also cut with
Spellbinder Nestibilities.
Distress Inks in Victorian Velvet and Bundled Sage and
touches of Stardust Stickles accent the die cuts.
Image was colored with Copic Markers.

This one was lots of fun to do.  I love cards with cutouts.

This one has the Lotus Pendant Spellbinder Nesties cut
from the center top.  I cut one white and a slightly larger
black circle. Stamped the image on the top white circle
then lightly stenciled Black Soot Distress ink around
the colored image when it was placed back in the die.

The card is made from Coredinations
cardstock so I was able to sand the black off the diecut
and let the green show through.  The card was embossed
with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder for the same
effect of color peeking through black.  I added a backing
to the cut opening with a Kaiser Craft patterned paper.
The diecut with the Wicked Witch image is then pop
dotted up off the peekaboo cutout area.

Added a ribbon and some buttons and topped them
with a few rhinestones.  Hint - mini glue dots are great
for adhering extras to buttons like this.

Ready for sneek peek 3 of my final project?

AMAZING! Your extensive work on these cards have raised the bar. The Good Witch reminds me of a Fairy Godmother looking out of the mirror at you. I love working with the Coredinations card stock. I am going to have to try your background technique for the second card.
