Perfectly Preserved Spider

Hey Stampers,

Good day ! This will be my last post for a few days because I am going to Montreal this weekend !! It's only for work, so not an ACTUAL vacation, but it still should be pretty fun ! I will be back again on Monday though, so make sure you come back then !! My card today is another Hallowe'en one. I had seen so many cute ideas using the Perfectly Preserved set for Halloween, so I decided I would try it out too !! I paired it with the Googly Ghouls set, and I think it turned out super cute !! Take a look !!

Cute huh !?! I love everything about it !! LOL. I stamped the jar in Jet Black StazOn and then put the little spider inside it. The "web string" that was on the spider wasn't long enough for me, so I used my Black Stampin' Write Marker to make it longer. LOL I love how the Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP looks on the end, for the splash of color. And the Spider Web embossing folder is so fun behind the spider image !! I broke up the DSP and embossed piece with a strip of Tangerine Tango that I punched with my Scallop Edge border punch. 

The sentiment image is from the Mixed Medley Hostess stamp set, so I got to use yet another spider web image !! I love tying all of my elements together !! LOL That stamp set coordinates with the brand new 1-1/4" Scallop Circle punch thats in the Holiday catalogue.  Its so adorable !! It makes great flowers and also looks awesome with our other Scallop Circle punches. 

This card was so quick and simple to make, but packs a big impact ! Thanks for dropping by today! Have a good day and Happy Stamping !!
