Here’s my card for this week’s Waltzingmouse sketch challenge. I used the sketch and this week’s Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black color combination from the Dynamic Duos challenge for this Halloween card.

I used the silhouette witch from the Hocus Pocus set as my focal image. It’s stamped on an orange panel in Versafine’s black ink for a nice, dark impression—this is my favorite ink for those solid images. I layered the image on a black circle, then used foam tape to adhere it to the center of a die cut doily circle.

I paired an orange striped paper with a solid orange one for the background. The seam between the two different papers is hidden with a strip of glitter tape and a piece of soft black velvet jumbo ric rac The doily is layered over the strips and accented with a pair of silver threaded buttons. I stamped the set’s “bewitched” sentiment at the bottom of the card to finish the card.

Materials Used:
Hocus Pocus stamp set (Waltzingmouse Stamps); Versafine Onyx Black ink (Tsukineko); Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, and Whisper White cardstock (Stampin’ Up!); Lush 2—Orange Stripedesigner paper (My Mind’s Eye); circle dies (Spellbinders); antique lace doily die (Lifestyle Crafts); glitter tape (American Crafts); black velvet ric rac, black buttons, silver lame cord (Michaels); foam tape


  1. Love the ric rac and that great lace doily Lori, so cute with the witch silhouette.

  2. Love the ric rac and doily too! Well, of course the image and sentiment!
