Nothing to Fear!

It’s here, It’s here! It’s Halloween season, AND time to start your spooky stamping! Stampendous is excited to be playing along again with the 9th annual 31 Days of Halloween at the Zahar Studio blog with our hostess with the ghostess, Terra! In the past this has been limited to stamped projects, but Terra has blown it wide open this year with tons of great options including mixed media and lots of other art styles. You’ll find a ton of inspiration at this event.
The theme this year is Day of the Dead, although any Halloween themed items can be posted. But beware!! Some of it might be kind of spooky! It’s not for the faint-hearted, or those who dislike Halloween.
How it works:
Stampendous has created a special page which will keep our Halloween Fun easy to find. That page is here:

31 Days of Halloween – Stampendous

The links to our Design Team and their amazing Halloween projects will be posted there along with our posts.  We will be offering our own prizes, as will many of the other participating blogs. Be sure that you read each blog’s rules for their giveaways, they are all separate and different.
Today I've created a Halloween card featuring the great Spider Fear Perfectly Clear Set (SSC1263) from Stampendous, along with a sentiment from their Spooky Wishes Perfectly Clear Set (SSC1264).

Step 5:    Cut layers of orange cardstock to match the flaps and inside of the card, adhere decorative papers that have been edged with black marker to the layers
Step 6:   Use foam tape to add the spider web and saying to the front flap
Step 7: Stamp the largest spider on white, color over it with the W6 marker, cut it out, adhere to the spider web on the card front

I made several of these spooky cards for a card club I belong to, I love how they turned out!

Happy 31 Days of Halloween,

I love how your card turned out, Louise. The coordinating black, orange and off white designer papers are perfect for Halloween. I'm not sure if I would get past the spider on the web to get to the sentiment. lol. Have a terror-ific Halloween. Love it!
