New Stamps and Stencils oh my!

Hello…today is a very happy day! 
The new Tim Holtz Stamps and Stencils from Stampers Anonymous are now revealed. I think a happy dance is in order don't you think! 
FYI Tim will be demoing at the Carson Rubber Stamp Show in Southern California so I hope you will stop by to say hi and pick up your favorite stamp sets and stencils!  

Look at all this creative fun just waiting to happen! 
Just add Distress Ink or Paint or Stain or you get the idea! 

Here are the Stamp Sets...

And you know I had to make a card...
Cut a piece of manilla card stock to size for your card front. Stamp the Witch and Greeting with Jet Black Archival Ink from CMS#197 Carved Halloween. I think this might be my favorite set. Stamp the moon with Wild Honey Distress Ink from CMS #199 Halftone Halloween. 

Create a background using the wrinkle free distress technique. Apply ink to your craft sheet, spritz with water, drag manilla card stock through the ink and dry with a heat tool. Repeat until desired effect is achieved. 

Hand color the Witch and Pumpkin by apply Distress Marker directly to your craft sheet, pick the ink up with the Detail Water Brush and color the images. Spritz the background with a Distress Spritzer and Iced Spruce Distress Marker. (sorry I forgot to take a photo) I was to busy creating! 

Stitch around the outside of the card with black thread. Ink the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool. 

Mount your image to a purple card. Add a few Apothecary Remnant Rubs to the card and it's all done. 

I don't know about you but I love the holidays especially Halloween. I think it because you get to be a big kid and no one gives you a bad time about it. 

Which is your favorite set?
Thanks for all the awesome comments!
