Waltzingmouse Sneak Peek Day #3 - A Witch and a Spooky Tree!

Welcome friends to Day 3 of the Waltzingmouse Sept Release Sneak Peeks!  Today we have two more sets to show you - both suitable for Halloween stamping -  Vintage Witch and Spooky Tree Backgrounder.

First up I made a card using the wonderful Spooky Tree (this background stamp would be great year round - not just for Halloween!).  I simply stamped the tree coming down from the top corner, added a sentiment from the Vintage Witch set that I die cut with a Deckled Edge Nestability  and added 3 punched butterflies.
Here's a close up of the wonderful detail on the branches - it's like a photograph!
 I'm entering this card in this week's Cas(e) this Sketch

And for my final sneak peek -  I made a tag - using the Vintage Witch set.  I cut a tag using a Tim Holtz Die in Kraft card stock.  Then I dry brushed white acrylic paint over it.  I stamped this wonderful vintage witch on white, cut it out and inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  I stamped the 'Oct 31st' and poem directly on the tag.  I looped some pom pom ribbon through the hole in the tag and added some enamel dots.
Look at the wonderful detail on this witch!
Here's a close up of the poem
 I hope I have inspired you with my projects using Claire's wonderful new sets.  They will all be available tomorrow (!) for purchase.  The Design Team will be having a blog hop starting at 2 pm EST and you could win a stamp set by leaving comments so I hope you'll come by tomorrow!

Once again - here are the links to the Design Team members working with these stamps today.
