Okay, folks!!!! It's my first Halloween card of the year, and I love, love, love it!!!!!
When I first spied the Perfectly Preserved stamp set, I knew I wanted to put all kinds of fun things in the jar........a spider included. LOL!!!!!
My Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge card all begins with a Basic Black base card.
Layer #2 utilizes the Inlaid Embossing technique. It starts with a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I then added a 2" x 4" strip of some Daffodil Delight dsp from the Polkadot Parade dsp pack. Run all of layer #2 through the Big Shot using the Spider Web embossing folder.
One of the exciting new products in the Holiday catalog is the 7/8" Natural Cotton Ribbon. You can stamp anything you want on it. For my card, I grabbed a sponge and my Rich Razzleberry ink pad to change the color of the ribbon. I then stamped "spooky" (from Spooky Bingo Bits stamp set) using my Jet Black StazOn ink.
My focal image begins with some Basic Gray cardstock being cut with my Window Frames framelits. I used the new Festive Piercing Pack to perfectly poke holes inside this die cut.
Now, comes the jar. I stamped the jar image using Jet Black StazOn ink onto some Whisper White cardstock. The image is cut using the coordinating Cannery Framelits. Using my aquapainter and some Pool Party ink, I colored just inside the lines on the jar to make it look like glass. The spider and the web (both from Spooky Bingo Bits) are stamped with Rich Razzlberry and Jet Black StazOn ink, respectively. The jar is then sponged with some Daffodil Delight ink.
All that's left is my sentiment. I grabbed a scrap of Daffodil Delight and stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes. Using my 1" square punch, I can create a cute little banner edge. Some dot work with a Basic Black marker adds just the right finishing touch!!!!
Isn't it cute? Don't get me wrong......I don't EVER want to find a spider and it's little web in a jar (ewwwwwwwww), but maybe it would'nt be that bad if he were as cute as this little devil!!!!
