Clearly Scary Recipe!


I really enjoyed making this card, I love to play with vellum and acetate.  I wish you could see this up close, I cut 2 circles of magnifying plastic, doubled them up and put them in the witches crystal ball.  This was so easy to make, I made a 5 x 7 card out of acetate, I printed Lindsay's Stamp Stuff  Witches Brew from the Vintage Halloween Labels  set onto the orange vellum and cut the circle out of the ball.  I ran my lace through the Zyron to make it stick, added blue pearls and a witchy bouquet of roses and feathers.  And I just had to add that pretty little blue jewel.  
Be sure to stop by Lindsay's blog The Frugal Crafter to pick up your free stamp today and see what other crafty goodness she has to share.  My DT sisters always amaze me with their awesome talent, be sure to stop by and see for yourself.

  11. What a lovely card, Diane - I especially love your witchy bouquet; it is so cute like that - so different than what I normally do with flowers. The blue jewel is gorgeous; adds flavor as the feathers do. Love the lace - really a great card!

  28. Why didn't I think of this....it's awesome! I totally love it!!!!!

    I think I don't tend to use clear because it never fails that I get the acetate dirty (I'm a messy crafter, lol)
