A simple Halloween card to share today....


The background was created by stamping Cover-A-Card Spider Web CC141 on white card stock with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and embossed with Clear embossing powder. Memento Tangelo was sponged around the edges.  
I used one of the sentiments from the Have Broom will Travel set and it was stamped and embossed the same as the background.
I used just this fabulous spider from the Spider Web DIE115-J
, it was die cut with black sparkly paper and popped up over the circles.
  
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

Soul Happy!

Hello Friends!

I have a little card to share that features the chalkboard technique.  All of the images were stamped and sponged with Memento Luxe Wedding Dress ink on black card stock.  I always heat set when I use Memento Luxe to prevent smudging.   Mom's Rose D9743 was stamped 3 times and colored with a plain old ordinary pencil crayon and cut out. I love this technique because the colors just pop!


Thanks for stopping by and have a most fantastic day!!
