What do you think of this Raven?  Isn’t he beautiful?  

The Raven stamp set is one of my favorite Halloween sets in the Holiday Catalog.  It’s one of the DisTinctive stamps where you get the shading to make it look more realistic.   After stamping the raven and the branch, I used my #8 circle die from the Layering Circle Die set to cut it out, sponged the edges with Smoky Slate and attached it to front of the card with stampin’ dimensionals.  The sentiment on the card is also from The Raven stamp set and was cut out with one of the labels from the Ornate Frames Dies and  the edges were also sponged with Smoky Slate ink.

The Ornate Frames Dies has 11 different size frames that you not only can use for Halloween but for other occasions as well.  The dies coordinate with Spooktacular Bash Stamp Set and can either be purchased separately or as a bundle.  If purchased as a bundle, you save 10%. I will list this bundle in the supplies below with the other products that I used to create this card.

The designer paper that I used is called Monster Bash Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the black embellishments are from the Monster Bash Enamel Shapes.

I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White cardstock and used one of the Ornate Frame Dies to cut it out. I attached it with multipurpose liquid glue to the Smoky Slate inside layer, and stamped the feather from the The Raven stamp set in the bottom right corner.
