All Hallows Eve

I'm late in starting my Halloween cards, but here's a sample of one I made using the Darice embossing folder, "Spider Web."

I used the "debossed" side of a 4 3/8 x 5 3/4" piece of black cardstock to fill in the spider web parts with a white Sakura Glaze pen. While the white glaze ink was still wet, I sprinkled some opaque glitter and shook off the excess.
It's hard to see the results of the opaque glitter in the photo above, and my camera was not cooperating with this close-up shot, either...but you get the idea.
I also used a red Sakura Glaze pen for the spider and in the middle parts of the webs, sprinkled with some fine red glitter (Hampton Art brand).

I then went around the inner border of the frame with some copper-colored Ranger-brand Stickles glitter glue.

These are some of the products used to make this card; Sakura Glaze pens; Stickles glitter glue (copper) and white opaque glitter (a generic brand from Joann's craft store in a 3-pack for $1.00; comes in opaque white, orange and black).

I added a "Happy Halloween" sentiment tag in two parts using the Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two and a clear mini acrylic stamp from the Scrapbookingforless website on sale for 50¢.

I used the bottom die to cut out my sentiment tag. I used two die cut tags; one for the word "HALLOWEEN"and another tag cut off and adhered to the top center with the word "Happy" (as seen in the photo above).

This clear acrylic mini stamp is from Inkadinkado. I blocked off the top and bottom parts with tape so that only the word "Halloween" was clear to stamp with my glue pad. After applying the sticky glue, I removed the tapes to stamp my sentiment.

This is the sticky glue pad I use by Tsukineko for my stamps whenever I dust with glitter which I purchased from Joann craft store.

Here is a close-up view of my two-part stamped and glittered sentiment.

This is the completed portion which I will then adhere to a card. It's a little rough around the edges being I create as I go along, but I'll eventually perfect it now that I've seen it all together. Next time I might use a silver pen for the spider-webbing...who knows?!? That's was creativity is all about! :D

Thank you for taking the time to view my blog and 
I hope it helps inspire you to create your own wonderful cards!
