Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Challenge

It's time for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Challenge (CCMC-HM1)!  This challenge is for our subscribers to participate and earn a chance to win one of two $75 gift certificates or one of two free subscriptions to the next Edition of Create with Connie and Mary.  It was a FUN sketch.  I know I had fun with it…I think our Guest Designers did, too! 


This week on Create with Connie and Mary, we've been focusing on Dark & Dreary, Spooky Nights Rub-ons and MIdnight Musings from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  It's not too late to join this 8 week subscription!  We are just getting started.  You'll have access to all the previous posts and tutorials long after the sesson is over!


As you can see, I used a rectangle card format rather than the square card.  I also used Stampin' Up!'s Nite Owl Designer Paper again for my card…I just LOVE those ads on the one page.  So spooky!  I started with a base of Basic Gray cardstock, then layered on Tangerine Tango.  The next layer of Old Olive I stamped the spiders in Basic Black randomly over the background.   I added more of the Night Owl Designer Paper and the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch from Tangerine Tango above and below it.  In between, I added the Black Flourish Jewels…they are just SO much fun and add just the right touch of sparkle!



Next to the ad from Nite Owl Designer Paper, I put a spider on Stampin' Dimensionals.  He was stamped in Basic Black on Whisper White, the colored with the Tangerine Tango Marker.  I added a Black Jewel to the bottom part of his body.  Then he was punched with the 1" circle and layered on the 1 1/4" circle of Tangerine Tango.  He looks real with that orange spotted body…I get those on my tomato plants!  Yuk!
