It's Eerie! (by Basic Grey) Card Class for Stampin'Cat Studio

Martha Stewart spiderweb border punch, sparkly orange paper (I think it's Die Cuts with a View.)
The spiderweb and spider are stamped on separate pieces of acetate so it looks like the spider is floating on the web.
Just a tri-fold Card. Basic Grey stamps.

I found this fold on Splitcoast Stampers. I think it's the "Joy Fold Card."
Martha Stewart's "Around the Page" punches in the Spiderweb design. Stamp by Tim Holtz.
I used a glue pen to draw over the black bats printed on the paper and then I flocked 'em with black Doodlebug flocking. Any black flocking will do.
For the crow, I used clear embossing powder on the Versafine Ink (you have to be fast!) and then used Tim Holtz's inking tool to smudge the Dusty Concord Distress Inks all over the image.
Spider punch by Martha Stewart. I punched it twice, once from patterned paper, once from black. I popped it up with a piece of foam adhesive so it would look shadowed.

Supplies: Eerie paper collection from Basic Grey, Clear stamps from Basic Grey (also from the Eerie collection) Clear stamps from Cosmo Cricket's Haunted line, Tim Holtz stamps, inks were Tim Holtz Distress Inks (spiced marmalade and dusty concord), as well as Tsukineko's Versafine in black.
The class is THIS Saturday, October 17 at 1:00pm at Stampin'Cat Studio. Sign up by Thursday to attend!

I REALLY need to update this blog

But I must admit, I'm a bit stumped for inspiration right now. Any thoughts/requests on what to blog about? Leave me a comment with your two cents worth!
