Witch's Brew

October 22, 2011

Happy Saturday, everyone!!  I hope that your weekend is off to a good start so far.  We have a good friend of ours in from Salt Lake City right now, and last night we had a bunch of his family over and ate tons of Papa Murphy's pizza, chatted, and had a movie on for all the kids.  It was a great night!!

I have my card to share for CPS Sketch #240 this week, where we were sponsored by Clearsnap.  This week we featured their new Colorbox Premium Dye ink by Stephanie Bernard.  The prize this week is a collection of 8 colors of these dye inks....and you still have time to create a card with the sketch and link up to it!!  The winner is normally picked when the next sketch goes up...so get to creating!!  Here is the card that I created...all challenges it is for will be listed at the end of the post!
"Witch's Brew" supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (black) & Papertrey Ink (kraft, vintage cream) 
Paper: Echo Park (The Apothecary Emporium 6x6 paper pad) 
Vellum: The Paper Company
Stamps/Dies: Papertrey Ink (Friendship Jar & Friendship Jar Fall Fillers sets)
Ink: Clearsnap (Dye: licorice)
Lace/Button: craft supply
Ribbon: Bo Bunny & Michael's brand
Twine: May Arts
Flowers: Recollections
Corner Rounder: Creative Memories

Instructions:  Make card from kraft cardstock, then round the opposite corners.  Cut two squares of paper, round the opposite corners and adhere to the front.  Wrap black lace around the middle.  Cut a square of black cardstock and round the opposite corners.  Do the same to a slightly smaller block of damask patterned paper, add two ribbon tabs to the top of it, and adhere to the black block.  Adhere the entire block to the card front.  Diecut & stamp the jar to vellum, then adhere a black label to the front of it.  Adhere the jar to the orange block.  Stamp the lid to dotted paper and cut out.  Wrap lace around the bottom of it, and then wrap twine right above that.  Stamp the tag & sentiment to cream cardstock, cut out and adhere to the lid.  Tie a double bow from twine, thread a button around the middle and adhere to the top of the tag.  Adhere the entire lid to the top of the jar, and then accent with fabric bats.  Add two paper flowers to the bottom of the jar to finish.

Well, I am going to go enjoy some college football with the hubby!  I hope you have a wonderful Saturday!! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
~Lea L.
