Cardmaking,  FSJ,  Stamping Inspiration,  Step by Step Tutorials

Jack-O-Lanterns, Bugs & Spider Webs, Oh My!

Halloween is coming and there’s not much time left!  Just because the holiday is only a few days away, it doesn’t mean crafting for it is over!  There is time left to stamp, die cut and create anything you can think of.  We’re still creating cards to send and hope you’ll be inspired to pop a few more into the mail box, too!

What’s the first thing you noticed about this card?  I know, it’s hard to identify!  However, we started with the background and we love how it really does resemble a spiderweb, right?  Let’s take a closer look!

The Greenhouse Embossing Folder is the backbone for this card — it’s so graphic and modern, yet really helps us create a fun spiderweb.  [Isn’t it exciting to look at products in different ways?!] Using it on Black Licorice cardstock then rubbing the surface of the Whip Cream True Color Fusion Ink Pad lightly over the embossed cardstock created this effect.  Just a simple technique that gives us a great base for our card.

A spiderweb needs bugs to catch, right?!  Why make them any ordinary bugs?  Why not add a bit of Journey Glaze and Journey Sparkle Dust, too?  The bugs might be creepy but that doesn’t mean they can’t be sparkly!

We love how coloring with the Journey Color Burst Pencils allows you to customize your projects.  Each image can be exactly and totally YOU! What’s better than that?

Halloween projects can be so fun and whimsical.  They are so much fun and we want to spread the fun! You don’t have to make it complicated, you can keep it simple like we did here! We want to see any of the Halloween projects you’ve created so far!  Make sure to share with us on Facebook or tag us on Instagram so we can see!
