Batty for You

Ok, I don't really make Halloween cards and I have no idea who I'm gonna send this one to but when I saw the Batty for You stamp set and Creepy Crawly Designer paper in the Stampin' Up! catalog, I knew I just had to get it. I used Julee Tillman's Mojo Monday sketch for this one and the patterned paper makes it super easy to whip out a card pretty quickly. I did this one while Maya was sleeping earlier today.

The card base is Basic Black and I stamped the Sanded background stamp on it in Craft White. Other cardstock colors used are Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, and Whsper White. The spider is stamped with Versafine Black Onyx and heat set to dry (because I was impatient and smudged the first one). It's punched out with a 1 3/8 inch circle punch and matted on the Pumpkin Pie Scalloped Circle. I added some dots with a black glaze pen. This piece is mounted on dimensionals on top of the bigger piece of paper which is on dimensionals on the card front. The Pumpkin Pie and Really Rust mats are distressed with the distressing tool in my Cutter Kit.

This is a great layout and depending on how cooperative the kids are tonight, I just might have to play with it some more. I think I might use it for my Christmas cards so I want to try a few different ideas out before bed. Hey, if not tonight then maybe tomorrow since I'm taking tomorrow off as well. Maya has croup and an ear infection--poor baby! I hope she gets better soon since she is not her normal, happy, bossy little self.

Thanks for visiting!
