Sketch Frenzy Friday Meets SSINK Product Focus: Spider Web Doilies and Lots of Halloween Fun!

Good morning!  Another Friday is here and it’s holiday weekend Friday, whoo hoo!  As we get ready to say good bye to summer (had a blast and can’t believe it’s over) I can tell fall is definitely on the way for this weeks Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch challenge I decided to combine it with the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Product Focus, the oh so cute Spider Web Doilies.  You know I love all holidays and really get into the spirit so this years Holiday Catalog has be over the edge with excitement with all the great products to help this upcoming holiday season.  When we first saw the catalog at convention and I saw the Spider Web Doilies I knew I had to have them but crazy me thought they were a Big Shot Die, in reality these are already cut out for you so they’re so easy and you can use them for so many options (hint:  flip them over and they’re white, BAM now you can use them outside of Halloween).  These doilies are going to be crazy popular so make sure when you order them to get a back up set (I did so you don’t run out!!)

I started with Tangelo Twist cardstock  for the cardbase and then added a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and new Woodland Embossing Folder (this embossing folder has so many possibilities I took some Smoky Slate ink and a sponge and rubbed the raised parts of the tress so they look a little spooky.  Next I took a piece of Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper and matted it with Basic Gray cardstock before attaching it to the cardfront.  I cut a small square of Very Vanilla Cardstock and matted it with Basic Black cardstock for the perfect mat for my potion bottle.  The potion bottle is from the Sweet Hauntings stamp set and was stamped with black ink on Smoky Slate cardstock before cutting it out with Paper Snips and attaching it to the cardfront with dimensionals.

For the greeting element I started by making a mat piece of it using the Tangelo Twist cardstock and embossing it with the Big Shot and Chevron Embossing Folder.  The “boo” greeting is from the Boo to You Framelits and was cut out of the new Basic Black Glimmer Paper (so pretty).  I used the new Fine Tip Glue Pen to attach the greeting and it works like a charm!!  I added a couple of spiders that were stamped from the Howl-o-ween Treat stamp set (which coordinates with the Boo to You Framelits so they were super easy to cut out (and you save 15% when you buy the bundle) and used dimensionals to pop both those little suckers up.  The final element I added was the Spider Web Doily, I used just a quarter of one and once again the Fine Tip Glue Pen was perfect for attaching this to the cardfront (notice I waited to the end so I could have the web coming from the far corner of the cardbase and onto the cardfront.  The final touch was to add a few rhinestones of various sizes to the spider web for some extra texture and dimension.

This card turned out so fun, it’s busier than some I create but I love every element (but had to finally tell myself to back again and stop adding things, do you ever have that problem??) The Happy Haunting Product Suite is so fun and all the products work perfectly to help you create the perfect project, without searching for products to match and compliment, AWESOME!!!
