I had a fun time getting together with fellow stampers Dawn and Holly yesterday. We decided to try out a challenge, with a Halloween theme, based on this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I love sketch challenges!! I am one of those people who agonize over the placement and design of my cards. I like to look at a sketch and then just focus on working on putting the pieces together. I am much more productive this way, although you wouldn't know it by how LONG it took me to get this card together. *Sigh*!
I used the new Wicked Cool stamp set on this card, which I think is pretty awesome for Halloween. I didn't use a whole lot of other Stampin' Up! products on this card...that will happen occasionally on my blog. I am going to affectionately dub these posts:
"My-Creations-Attempting-to-Use-Up-the-Ridiculous-Amount-of-Papercrafting-Products-I-Stockpile". Simply put, I need to dust off some of the collected products in my stamp studio and allow them to finally see the light of day. I guess you could say I'm a supply "collector", because the word "hoarder" conjures up images of those crazy reality TV shows. I'm not at that stage...YET...ok, maybe a little! But I digress....
Aren't these sparkly spiders adorable? The only problem was that I couldn't fit 4 of these creepy, little "beef-cakes" on the card like I had wanted to. :(
I heat embossed the candelabra and the sentiment in black, then added a wee bit of glitter to the candle "flames", because let's face it, who doesn't love making a mess with glitter! Even a teeny amount will effectively find it's way onto everything and everyone in the room, Haha!
Thanks for visiting!
Have a *spooky* day, stampin' friends!
