I could not do this hop with our featuring Halloween since it is probably my most favorite holiday to celebrate.  So I designed a fun Halloween card for you today.

jeepers-creepers-halloween-card-silly-spider-web-catscrapbooking-comI have to admit using black as my card base is new territory for me but it so fit with Halloween.  I love this Silly Spider Web B1529 stamp set.  I just love the Jeepers Creepers paper pack. To make the black twine I simply took our white twine and used our black Shin Han Marker and colored it.  I used some black glitter paper, Shimmer Brush and my blending pen to add ink to my stamped spider web.

Since the letter “V” is as challenging a “U” before it when it come to crafting.  I decided to look at my Cricut Cartidges again.  Well I was VERY VICTORIOUS as I was working on a project with the Nevermore paper pack and I was needing some Halloween cuts.  Guess what is on page 71 of the Artbooking booklet??? The letter “V” and the five perfect cuts.  I purchased these BOO letters last year but never got around to completing them, so I was determined to do it this year.

Nevermore ~ Boo Letters ~ ABC's V ~ Artbooking ~ CatScrapbooking.com

Her is how it turned out.  All of the cuts are from Close to My Heart Cricut cartridges, except the tree and ghosts, these are from my Silhouette .  The ravens and spider are found on page 70 of Artbooking.  The moon, bats, fence, house and Beware also come from Artbooking on page 71.  The spider web and tombstone are from Artiste page 76.

Here is a close up of each letter.Nevermore ~ Artbooking ~ Boo Letters B ~ ABC's V ~ CatScrapbooking.comNevermore ~ Artbooking ~ Boo Letters O ~ ABC's V ~ CatScrapbooking.comNevermore ~ Artbooking ~ Boo Letters O2 ~ ABC's V ~ CatScrapbooking.com

  • Glitter Paper ~ Black, Silver, White and Gold.

Stampers with Attitude ~ Artfully Sent

Welcome to the Stampers with Attitude Blog Hop!! The Stampers with Attitude is the team lead by Kimberly Moss.  This month the Stampers with Attitude are going to be showcasing artwork with the new Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge.   If you are just hopping here from BELINDA MCLANE’s Blog then you are in the right spot.

This cartridge is so wonderful there are so many different cards you can create.  Today I decided since it was October and Halloween is right around the corner, then a Halloween card was in order.  I also saw a really cool technique called Alcohol Marker Marbling on Splitcoast Stampers that I have been wanting to try which would work with halloween.

Happy Haunting - Artfully Sent ~ catscrapbooking.com

I love these scene cards.  I used the Alcohol Marbeling technique to create the background paper.  I used Warm Gray Z2467, Marigold z2457, Peony Purple Z2462, and Golden Yellow Z2452.  You can check out the technique at Splitcoast Stampers here they have written directions and a video.

Happy Haunting - Artfully Sent inside ~ catscrapbooking.com

I actually cut two of the bases of the card so I could create a sandwich with the haunted house and add the Honey in the middle.  If you notice the background is glossy it is actually photo paper.  I plan to just use a journaling pen to write on the card.  I used one of the bats from the cut and colored it black to add to the happy hauntings.

Items used:

  • Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge~ Pg 44
  • Cardstock~ Black, Honey, Thistle
  • Shin Han Markers ~ Warm Gray Z2467, Marigold z2457, Peony Purple Z2462, and Golden Yellow Z2452
  • Stamp Set ~  Moonlight WOTG (retired)
  • Embellishments ~ Black Stars from Scaredy Cat Assortment.
  • Misc ~ photo paper

Now hop on over to DEBBIE ANDREWS Blog and see what she has created.
