My Craft Spot - Fall Stamp Release Party - Day 3

It's Day 3 of the My Craft Spot Fall Stamp Release Party!  Haven't the projects been fabulous?  I'm always so amazed with the creativity and talents of Kimberly and the rest of the design team.

Today, we are showcasing sentiments from the NEW Best Witches to You.  I LOVE this set!!  So does my sister.  In fact, she was visiting when the new stamps arrived in the post and took a real liking to today's set - and especially the sentiment, "If you've got it, haunt it."  As she was talking, I knew I wanted to make a card for her with that sentiment.

Rachel is a model.  She used to model full-time and travelled all over the world doing shows and photo shoots.  She has since gone back to school is now employed as a certified speech language pathologist.  However, she still does a fair bit of modelling in her free time.  I based my card on Rachel and a shoot she was part of a few years ago.  That explains why my bride of Frankenstein has red hair!!  Here's one of the photos from that shoot:

My baby sister

I used A Frightful Affair for the bride of Frankenstein and Happy Hauntings for the sentiment frame.  I embossed the hair with a Victorian Lace Cuttlebug folder and spritzed it with some Stampin' Up Smooch Spray.  I covered the dress with Glossy Accents and then heated it to make it bubble a bit.  

The sentiment frame was covered with Crackle Accents.  I then stamped a sentiment with a stamp from the NEW My Craft Spot Best Witches to You set.  I also added a little bat from Monday's Stampin' Around Fall set and some little stars from last year's My Craft Spot Fall Stamp Release set, Candy Corn Kisses.  I spritzed this with some Stampin' Up Smooch Spray too.

The spiderweb papers are from K&Company. I finished things off with some Black Diamond crinkle ribbon and black baker's twine - both from My Craft Spot - and a little purple button.

Be sure to head over to My Craft Spot to see what Kimberly and the rest of the design team have created.  The projects are amazing!!  And, while you are at My Craft Spot, don't forget to leave a comment for Kimberly for your chance to win today's wonderful prize!!
