Whimsy Stamps September Release - Day 1


It's time for the new September release from Whimsy Stamps, where has the year gone?!

My card today uses both the new Web Background rubber stamp and the Halloween Creatures Stencil. Sooooo fun to use. The sentiment is a combo of the Happy large word die and the Happy Sayings clear stamp set. I've listed items used along with links at the end of my post, just click on the pictures to go to products in the store.

First I stamped the background using my MISTI and some Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink onto some light grey cardstock.

Once dry I used the stencil and some Black Soot distress ink to stencil on the spiders.

I cut my panel with one of the Nested Stitched rectangle dies and then matted onto black cardstock leaving a very narrow border.

I made a card base from the same light grey cardstock that I used for my background.
I cut some purple glitter cardstock a little smaller than my card base and glued that down then mounted my background onto it with some craft foam in between. Because it's really difficult to adhere stuff to glitter card and because I hate wasting pretty cardstock behind stuff, I cut the centre of the glitter card out with a smaller rectangle die before gluing it to my card base.

I cut several Happy die cuts using the same grey stock and cut the final one in the glitter cardstock and stacked and glued them together and set aside. I stamped and embossed the halloween sentiment in silver onto some black cardstock and trimmed it to fit. I then glued this and the stacked Happy die cut to my card.

Finally to finish I glued some purple gems onto my spiders for a little more bling!

  1. Oh wow! This is both gorgeous and super sleuky! (Georgie's word for scary spooky stuff!) The gems on their back add to the sinister feel of the spiders but make them pretty too! Such a clever and fun creation hun! Love it. Hugs, Wends xoxo
