August SOTM blog hop - Wicked

Welcome the the SOTM blog hop for Aug. You should have come from Lisa Schaefer's blog . Next in the hop is Diana Soling's blog. There are over 60 consultants in this months blog hop. The stamp set is name Wicked and a cute Halloween stamp set.
My first project i kept with the Halloween theme. I used colors from our new Mischief paper packet. I used remarkable wreath(new), and stamped it twice, slightly twisting so it would be a fuller wreath. I embossed the cat in black. I used our milepost shapes (new). I inked it black and used it behind the main image. I stamp the sentiment and cut it out with spellbinder die. i didn't have my cricut cartridge yet.
On this project, I wanted to show you that you can use this stamp set with the Halloween theme. I made this for my hostess, she does passion parties and her group name is buzzing bee-uties. So i went with the bee theme. the honeycomb makes a great background stamp for any theme. I used the cork letters (new) to spell out her name and used sunflower ink to change their color.

(sorry about the blurry image. not sure why it is)

Here is the closeup of the girl. yes, this is the same image as the girl on the wicked stamp. I did some masking and cutting and paper piecing to make her look less witchy. Masked the bird and part of the dress, changed the hat and the boots, and now you just have a sexy gi

I hope you enjoyed this look into our new sotm. You can get this stamp set or $5 when you have a purchase of $50 or more. Plus CTMH has an extra, extra going on. To celebrate the new price for the SOTM, when you purchase Wicked, you get a free a size alphabet, typeface. How awsome is that?
