Spooky Cakes and Candy Dot Spiders


Today's the last day of Impression Obsession week at Stamper's Dream. I hope you've enjoyed seeing what the team has come up with with these fabulous images. For today's card, I got to work with the Spooky Cakes. I paired them with Memory Boxes fun and beautiful dp called Twilight!! I also used some JustRite images, from the Witch Way to the Treats set, for my sentiments. Everything was colored with Tombows, and I added a bit of sparkle to the cupcakes with my Quickie Glue Pen and Ultrafine Glitter.

I thought it would be fun to add some spider webs and bats, so I used the Martha Stewart Punches: Bats Corner, and Spiderweb Border.

For the bottom sentiment, I used SU!'s label punch, and I added a Basicgrey button and some Black Sheer Ribbon (May Arts).

I didn't have any spiders to embellish this card with, so I made my own. I just tied the sheer ribbon with black embroidery thread and put black Candydots (Pebbles, Inc.)on top, leaving the threads showing. By spreading them out a bit, they look like legs. To me anyway...*grin*

Finally, to finish this creepy card off, I ink distressed all the edges with Tuxedo Black (Memento), sewed the panels, and distressed all the edges with some tearing.

Now, check out what these gals have come up with for today: Amy, Laurie, Silke, Michelle

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
I hope your week has been a fabulous one, and that your weekend is even better!!
Happy Stamping!
