My Craft Spot Release - Another Sneak Peek

It's time for another sneak peek of the new My Craft Spot stamp sets - all of which will be revealed tomorrow!  Today, we are sharing projects created with the NEW Happy Haunting set.
As soon as I saw the set, the idea for this card popped into my head.  The "You make me batty!" sentiment is so fun!!  

To create my card, I used the bat from Hello Kitty Greetings and cut him from a metallic silver paper.  I cut the card base with George and Basic Shapes (having designed it on my Gypsy with squares and circles).  The full moon (circle!) is also from George and Basic Shapes.  I added a border punched with an EK Success punch and everything else was hand cut.  I used some Deep Purple Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot as well.   To make the bow, I first twisted the ribbon and then frayed cut the ends to create a more frayed look.  I also cut the ends of the ribbon behind the sentiment.  I added some doodling and gave my bat some gems for eyes and a nose to finish things off.

I can't wait to show you my projects tomorrow - and to have you join along in the My Craft Spot Release Blog Hop!  Plus, ALL the new items will be revealed and ready to purchase.  How fun!
