My final Halloween card this year… and it's a cute one! I used Bugaboo Spider Trio image and was inspired by a card made by one of the Design Team cards posted on the Bugaboo Blog last month. Liked my first card so much that I made a second, similar but horizontal vs. vertical. Am entering them into several challenges, one requires "monochrome" them. I used shades of gray, with black, white and silver accents. Also, wanted to share a blingy trick. I picked up some rhinestone alphabet sticker sets in JoAnn's clearance aisle for super cheap. When needing itty-bitty bling (like I added on these cards to resemble dew on the web) I use an Exacto knife and cut up the letters that I'll never use- x, q, z, etc. and since they are stickers no need to mess with glue! (I added a pic of the alphy sets so you could see what I'm talking about.) Also, both greetings are from TLC Creations (createwithtlc.blogspot.com)

Recently purchased the Hero Arts Stamps&Cuts Butterfly and was fun to play with it this weekend. Although, I have to admit that I'm so used to using digis that I couldn't remember where I store my MISTI and I figured I'd need it for this card since the butterfly is a 3-step layered image. (Love that the stamp for the bottom image is actually polka dotted and that the antenae are stamped on seperately.) However, this set was so easy to use that I could get a good image just using my clear blocks. Was fun to use the little hello sentiment that is in the set to make the butterfly trail. And, I left a little bit of room between the hello's to draw a whisp of a heart with the fine tip of my marker. So pretty!

A stamping friend recently gifted me with a nice new set of stamps that included this beauty! This time I did use my MISTI to get a crisp image since I was stamping on vellum. Created the background with paper strips using a tutorial that I found via Pinterest (stampinpretty.com/2016/01/strips-of-love-blossoms-valentine-card.html). Provided a great way to use up all those little bits and pieces of paper that accumulate in this craft! And, was fun to find so many scraps that worked for the peacock color scheme!
