Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge

I look forward to these challenges, hope that you do, too!  Mary came up with this awesome sketch for CCMC110.  I hope you play along and add your creation to Inlinkz on the Create with Conne and Mary website!



I continue to be excited about Stampin' Up!'s new Halloween set, Wicked Fun!  I just love the stamp elements in this set!  Here is this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge using this set!



Do you spot something NEW?  How about that Spider Web folder?  AWESOME!  I thought the circle in the sketch would be perfect for a spider web.  I used the Big Shot to emboss it on Basic Black cardstock, then used a sponge dauber and the Platinum Shimmer Paint to highlight sections of the web!  I used the Clear Circle die to cut my circle, then layered it on the large Scallop Circle Die of Tangerine Tango.  The polka dot designer paper is from Wicked Fun.  I stamped Have a Wicked Halloween on Whisper White with Basic Black Classic Ink and punched with the 1 1/4 circle punch, then layered on the Tangerine Tango 1 3/8 circle punch.  That was offset and layered on the 1 3/4 Circle Punch of Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I stamped the witches hat on Whisper White with Basic Black added Tangerine Tango and Rich Razzleberry to the hat band with my Stampin' Write Markers, then cut it out.


I wrapped Black Satin Ribbon around and tied a knot.  The background Old Olive cardstock was run thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder and layered onto the base 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 card of Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  Boy…what did we ever do without the Big Shot!  I think I use it on almost every card I make!  Such a GREAT tool for cardmaking and scrapbooking!  Finally, I punched two bats from Basic Black, sponged around them with the Platinum Shimmer Paint and popped them up with Dimensionals.  I added some bling with Rhinestone Jewels on their bodies!


Make sure to go check out the rest of the Challenge Team's designs this week over on Create with Connie and Mary.  AND…did you know we are looking for FOUR new Design Team members for the Holiday Edition of Create with Connie and Mary coming soon?  We'd LOVE for you to apply!  You can see the details HERE!
