I think this is absolutely the most adorable stamp image that I have. This stamp is also from Catherine's Bee & Bird Paperie collection. I once again used grey paper with white swirls to give the windy, eerie look of a Halloween night. I attached a paper spider web in the upper left corner of the card. I cut the top row of the Bingo card copy and attached it to the lower left corner. I stamped the image twice: once on grey paper and once on orange paper. I cut out the orange dress and glued it over the cut out image from the grey paper. I stamped the arms on orange paper and cut them out and attached them to the cape with brass brads. I used a petal from a silk poppy for the skirt and attached it to the back of the witch. I used black and white striped paper for the legs and folded them accordian style. I cut the black shoes free hand from a black cardstock scrap and glued them to the end of the legs. I attached the legs to the back of the witch with glue dots. I used orange dotted ribbon at her neck for the cape and attached it with a black brad. Next I edged a Bingo paper button with orange ink and tied a bit of embroidery floss through it. I attached it to the image with a glue dot slightly under her arm. I drew the scroll and wrote the message with a Zig black pen, cut it out and glued it to the card as though it is in her hand. To finish, I added the decorative orange brad at the Bingo card corner.

I love Character Construction images by Catherine Moore. This is Miss Pumpkin Head (not Catherine's name for her, but mine <**>). I really should have done a taller card and put a pumpkin skirt on her, but alas, she is gone from me now. ") I used a grey cardstock with white swirls to give the feel of a windy night. I first stamped the spider webs and bat with black ink on the card. Next I adhered gold-leafing flakes in a swirl so it would appear behind her. I stamped Miss Pumpkin on orange paper and used markers to accent her bow at the neck. I computer generated the text (my little diddie ) and printed it off. I sponged on some orange and ochre inks and cut out and layered on black scrap cardstock. I glued one partially covering the spider web at the upper left corner. The other text I glued to Miss Pumpkin's "hands" so she would be holding it. I drew the little pumpkins, colored them in and cut them out. I glued them in front of the lower spider web. I used a black Zig Micro pen to draw the spider on the web. I attached Miss Pumpkin to the card with dimensional tape. I sponged orange ink around the edges of a paper button and added the orange embroidery thread and attached it to the card. I then added the gold moon to the card with glue dots. I lightly edged the card with brown ink.
