Cute little spider

I detest spiders (the real ones), but this little googly eyed guy is quite cute. Spiders don't bother me so much in stamp form!

Eat at your own risk!

Back to the jars agian! This card was inspired by one that Debbie Olson made recently. After I saw her candy corn jar, I wanted to make one of my own. For the main panel I used the jar and the candy corn filler from Fall Fillers. The label on the jar is a stamp from Spooky Sweets 2 cut out with an oval nestabilities. On the cream panel, I used the spider and web from Fall Fillers and the sentiment is from Spooky Sweets 2. I also randomly stamped the cream panel with Text Style in chamomile (from tea dye duo) for added interest. The Smokey Shadow base is stamped with Library Card and several more images from Spooky Sweets 2. Notice anything off about my card? After I had the candy corn all colored and ready to go, my son came in pointed out that I had colored them in the wrong way. It is supposed to go white, orange, and yellow on the bottom. Oh well, I spent way too much time coloring those suckers, so I used them anyway!

Too Cute to Spook

I still have a few Halloween jar cards to share, but I thought I would give you a little break and share something that doesn't involve a jar-it is still a Halloween card, though! I recently discovered a line of stamps by Claudia and Co. called Puddlejumpers that are adorable. The one pictured below is called School Time Lucy. ETA: I bought this stamp through allthatscraps.com, but they are also available at diecutsrus.com
Since I have been in a Halloween mood, I looked at her the other day and thought she would also make a bewitching (haha) trick or treater! So I ommited her stack of books and paired her with PTI's Tiny Treats:Halloween (pumpkin, bat, and sentiment). The purple polka dot patterned paper is from a new line by American Crafts and my orange cardstock is stamped with PTI's Text Style in Versamark Dazzle ink.

I hope you enjoy. Thanks for stopping by!

Gone Batty

Jar of Ghosties

I have another Halloween jar card to share today. I stamped the little ghosts from Tiny Treats:Halloween then cut them out and adhered them to a dark jar cut out of Smokey Shadow. I wanted the jar to be dark so that my ghosties could glow-I just used some yellow chalk to to get the look. The fabulous patterned paper is by Pink Paislee, I just added the sentiment and the spider webs in the corner. The ribbon is sewn on and then I added some fray check to the back of the stitching.The fray check soaked through the paper and ribbon and added a nice little dark spot to the front of the card. A fun addition I hadn't planned on! Speaking of the ribbon, it is actually black and white so I just used by tea dye duo to darken it up. Hope you enjoy!

Witch's Brew

Hello again! Where have I been? Playing with my new Fall Fillers set-love it! I already have 6 Halloween cards to show you using this new set. I was going to wait until closer to Halloween, but I really don't want to wait. So, here is the first one..(click for a larger view)

For this card I used the origianl Friendship Jar set to make the "brew" and used a small circle from Beautiful Blooms 2 to add the bubbles. I then stamped my library card image and made and ingredient list using Library Ledger, several different words from the Friendship Jar series, and a few images from Spooky Sweets 2. I made the label with a stamp from Tiny Treats:Halloween. I am very happy with how this card turned out. I think Halloween cards might be my very favorite to make! What types of cards are your favorite to make?

Stamps: Library Ledger, Friendship Jar, Fall Fillers, Tiny Treats:Halloween, Spooky Sweets 2, Beautiful Blooms 2, Text Style all from Papertrey Ink.
