Halloween is almost here. So, I think it's time for a little spookiness. What do you say?
Stampin' Up! released a cool Halloween set, Wonderfully Wicked, in their holiday catalog, Creativity is Calling. Found on page 55 of the catalog, it features lots of creepy images and sentiments that are perfect for spooky crafting.
Using that set exclusively, my girls made this card at the September Stamp-In.
The only additions I incorporated into the card were a black rhinestone on the spider's head and a scrap of black lace.
I realize that this next photo is sort of a strange one,
but doesn't it look like the black rhinestone is a glittering eye on the spider?
A fairly easy card to make, follow along to discover how to replicate it for yourself:
Smoky Slate cardstock
Basic Black cardstock
Basic Gray cardstock
Basic Gray ink
Wonderfully Wicked stamp set (page 55, Holiday Catalog)
Black crocheted trim or substitute
Stitched Nested Labels dies (page 196, Annual Catalog)
Fold a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Smoky Slate cardstock in half, creasing it well with a bone folder.
Adhere a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of black cardstock to the card base.
Stamp the spider web in black all around the edges of a piece of Basic Gray cardstock that measures 3 3/4" x 5". Adhere this piece on top of the black cardstock.
Using the Stitched Nested Labels, cut one label from black cardstock that measures 3 3/4" from point to point.
Using the same dies, cut another label from Smoky Slate with this one measuring 3 1/4" from point to point. Stamp the spider to the left edge and the Happy Halloween sentiment to the right on this piece. Use the stipple brush, and rubbing it across the Basic Gray ink pad to ink it up, stipple dots all over the light gray piece until you are happy with the look.
Repeat this stippling on the card base that you have so far.
Glue the two labels together.
Add a black rhinestone to the head of the spider.
Tape a piece of the black trim to the back of the labels as in the sample or as you wish.
With a few Stampin' Dimensionals, adhere the finished label to the card front, raised just a bit from center.
