From the Crypt Brayered Card and Spooky Candy Wrappers

From the Crypt Brayered Card and Spooky Candy Wrappers
I had alot of fun creating this brayered card! I started out with a 4 3/4" Square piece of Whisper White, punched out my circle and brayered over it (masking technique).  Next I stamped the trees in the background and masked then sponged the hills in.  I put this thru my Big Shot tucked in the new Spider web embossing folder and sanded the top of the embossed spider web, popping the white for the web. Next I stamped the spider from, From the Crypt stamp set, and went back and colored it in.

The Spooky Candy Wrappers were fun to play around with.  I had tried a few different things and this is what I came up with.  I started out with an 8 1/2 x 11" piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock.  I cut it at 5 1/2" on the long side, giving me two pieces to run thru the Big Shot with the Candy Wrapper Bigz Die. After I ran them thru, I embossed one with the Perfect Polka Dot folder, the other with the Spider Web folder.  I scored the creases and rubbed the embossed parts with my Basic Black ink pad.  I assembled it and embellished one with a So Saffron Circle and Bitty Bat in Black, the other with the Spider from, From the Crypt and a Black circle behind it.

Just Believe

This card has been sitting around for a while begging me to post it! I am finally back in posting mode and will have to figure out how to set it up to where I can do several posts at a time so you won't wonder where I have disappeared to!
So I used the Just Believe stamp set that I earned for FREE during sale a bration at the beginning of the year. First I stamped the image in Pink Pirouette ink on Pink Pirouette cardstock. Then I went back in with my Stamp-a-ma-jig and stamped the image in Early Expresso just to the right.
