To make this card I cut two strips of paper 2 inches in width. Then I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Black Soot. I then cut a a one inch strip and stamped the greeting, spider web and spider using these stamps from Hero Arts (these are my favorite stamps for Halloween greetings--they are just too cute). Next I inked it up with Anitique Linen and Black Soot. I then used my new EK Success punch Bumpy Road. I love this scallop punch because it is uneven. I then inked the edges again with Black Soot, and attached it to the greeting strip. Next I cut out a die cut from Nestablilities and stamped them with the coordinating Paper Trey Ink stamps and then inked it up with Anique Linen and Black Soot. With this paper kit you got chipboard and matching stickers. I took the candy corn and of course inked it up with Black Soot again (I just love my distress inks!), and attached it with pop dots. I am really pleased with how it came out.

Nothing new with us this week. It has been pretty quiet--thank goodness. I am still trying to get my "junk" ready for the scrapbook garage sale ready. I don't have that much but it will be nice to clean out some stuff. The garage sales are every 3 months or so and I always participate. I am constantly cleaning out and keeping things organized. I like to keep my stash reasonable because if I have too much then sometimes I can't seem to get going--I get hung up on picking the perfect items for the layout. Plus I really don't have that much space for all my stuff.
I also want to give a big shout out to all the new followers--thanks so much I truly appreciate it. When I read your comments I just have a great big smile on my face.
See you in a couple of days! Thanks for stopping by!
