Project 100 of 365: Midnight Musings Web October 4, 2010

Ok….One more card, then really I’m going to bed…LOL!  I seriously do need to get to bed, otherwise I’m going to oversleep my first day at work….

This card is based on a card by Phyllis Johnson, but I did make quite a few changes.  Again, since its Halloween, I dirtied up all the pieces (I’m still sticking to my guns….Halloween isn’t supposed to be pretty…hehe), purposely made it so all the pieces weren’t so perfectly lined up and even, added some spooky glam with pearl stickles, and replaced some of the expensive Designer Paper with my homemade patterned paper.

Don’t you just love how the spider web emboss folder makes the dsp crack a little, letting the white core just peek through….Helps add to the disorder of the Spooky Halloween Cards.

Project 99 of 365: Old Olive Web

I should really be in bed right now, but it always seems like when you really need to sleep you are somehow wide awake.  Tomorrow is my first day back to selling Mercedes Benz, so tonight I have been running around trying to make sure I have everything organized around here so things don’t get too out of whack.  So today has been laundry, packing all my eBay sales so my husband can take over his new role of shipping all the stuff I sell (since I will be leaving for work before the post office opens, and returning home after its closed.), and just trying to figure out how to fit everything into my new schedule.

So now to wind down I’m going to try to post a couple more of those Halloween cards that have been piling up, waiting for their turn to shine here for everyone to see 🙂

99 of 365: Old Olive Web

This card was inspired by a card I saw by Elizabeth Price.  The only differences are that I added an extra layer by making the card black, and layering the web embossed Old Olive piece on top of it, then I roughed up the edges on EVERYTHING and distressed it all further by rubbing black ink all over.  The way I see it Halloween cards should not be pretty and orderly…The should be dirty, disorganized, shall we even say scary?  Lol!!

Supplies:

Paper:

  • Basic Black
  • Old Olive
  • Whisper White
  • Wicked Fun DSP

Stamps:

  • Dark & Dreary

Ink:

  • Basic Black
  • Old Olive

Accessories:

  • Spiderweb Textured Impressions Emboss Folder
  • Cutter Kit- Distress Tool
  • Dimensionals
  • Circle Punches
  • Scallop Circle Punch 2″ (this is slightly larger than the SU punch)

Thank you for looking!  Come Back Soon.

Project 93 of 365: Spiderwebs and Candles September 26, 2010

Woohoo…..over the past few days I have made sooooo many cards with the new goodies I ordered from the fall catalog!!!  I must have been in the zone.

The first bunch of these cards are all Halloween cards, and I am pretty darn happy with myself for the results.  As mentioned in the previous post I”m not really a Halloween person, but this year I must have caught the spirit.  Maybe it started with that awesome haunted house…

I must confess that since I have not previously made Halloween cards that most of these were at least started/inspired by other cards I have seen on Splitcoast Stampers or the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator only site.  I will give credit where ever necessary 🙂

This first card was inspired by a simple card by someone using the screen name “Speedy Stamper” on Splitcoast Stampers.  The layout is based on her card, but I changed all the colors, distressed the web, added some brads, and then added the “happy halloween” greeting.
