I've been buying all these really cool stamp sets from Papertreyink and then just leaving them sitting around without doing to much with them so when I bought the Spooky Sweets stamp set I decided that I was actually going to do something with it and so far I'm having a wonderful time creating some fun Halloween cards. This set was actually designed to decorate bags, tins, treats etc...but since I love making cards I decided that would be my first usage of this very versatile stamp set.
For this card I started out with a piece of light olive 12x12 Designer Paper (source unknown) and decided that I was going to create my own "custom" designer paper using stamps from the Spooky Sweets stamp set. I first stamped the 2 Bat images several times using Palette Noir Black ink (also found at Papertreyink) then I stamped the Sentiment with Old Olive ink (SU) and distressed the edges and added a few smudges of the olive ink as well on the stamped area. Then I layered this to a 5" square of Only Orange card stock that was stamped with the Sanded BG by Stampin'Up! (I love that background stamp). I layered this to a 5 1/4" Square Card (Old Olive and added 3 Lg. Black Eyelets and the Olive/Orange Stitched ribbon (Autumn Inspirations - JoAnn Fabrics) I added Large Photo corners that were punched with SU Photo corner punch and pierced with the Crafters Tool Kit.
Then I punched out a 2 1/8" Circle (McGill) of Summer Sun card stock that was also stamped with the Sanded BG in SS ink and edged with the ink to give it a little glow around the edges. I had this really COOL puffy bat that someone had sent me on a card that I took off & saved so I added it to my MOON and then glued on some crystals eyes and mounted this to my card with mounting tape. I really like how this turned out & hope you do as well.
