Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge: Bite Me

Happy Friday peeps!  What a crazy week (even worse than most in our house).  I'm so looking forward to spending some quality time at home this weekend, plus baseball season is wrapping up, we only have this weekend and next and then we're done until spring.  Today I have another fun Halloween card to share with you for this weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge.   I was so excited last month when Stampin' Up! announced the new Photopolymer Stamp Set, Bite Me.  It has such great images, plus don't we all need a stamp that says "Bite Me"?  So awesome!!! 

This card starts with a cardbase of Tangerine Tango and added layers of Garden Green and Elegant Eggplant under the Smoky Slate layer.  On this I stamped the spider web in Basic Black ink and the splotches in Elegant Eggplant and Garden Green ink.  I added a piece of Tangerine Tango Designer Series Paper and stamped the cute little spiders directly on the DSP.  The fun little Ric-rack border was cut with the Big Shot and the Tasteful Trim XL Bigz Die.  I stamped another spider on Elegant Eggplant cardstock and punched it out with the Small Oval Punch, a small string of rhinestones was added to look like the spiders string.
I had to use the "Bite Me" image so it was stamped with Tangerine Tango ink, punched out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and then matted with Basic Black cardstock that was punched with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch.  The final touch was to stamp the greeting (love all the different images in this stamp set, there really is everything) on Smoky Slate cardstock with Elegant Eggplant ink and punched it out with the Modern Label Punch.  I used dimensionals for the oval spider and the greetings so there is lots of dimension.
You've got to check out some of the other great projects created for this weeks challenge, such great inspiration and you'll love the Bite Me stamp set, give the Photopolymer stamp sets a try, you'll like them.
Enjoy and have a great weekend,

Pin It!
