ScrapMart: BOO!

Although we are enjoying the summer in the Chicago area, I am already thinkin' FALL!!! LOL! During 2012 Summer CHA (Craft & Hobby Assoc.) trade show, I was kindly given a sampler package of Carta Bella papers.

In the package, there were a couple of sheets of the All Hallow's Eve Collection! Giving myself a challenge on how to use the two papers, I came up with a 6x6" card.

Boo! card by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Cardstock & Letter Stickers: American Crafts; Patterned Paper: Carta Bella (All Hallow's Eve Collection); Ink: Ranger (Distress Ink Black Soot) and Clearsnap (ColorBox Donna Salazar Mix'd Media Inx Jasmine); Dies: Spellbinders™ Paper Arts (S4-330 Nested Tombstones, S4-333 Spider Web and S4-280 Halloween Fence Scenes and Shapes); Adhesives: ScraPerfect (The Best Glue Ever) and SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L (3D Foam Squares); Other: Googley Eyes

I LOVE Spellbinders newest seasonal releases (available NOW!) - S4-330 Nested Tombstones and S4-333 Spider Web! Included in this card front is S4-280 Halloween Fence Scenes and Shapes set - it's such a perfect border for the bottom edge!



The spider from S4-333 Spider Web, I stenciled through the die with Donna Salazar's Mix'd Media Inx Jasmine and used it in the inside of the card as an accent! LOVE!!


It helps that the papers were double-sided! The flip side of both papers were used on the larger tombstone and the fence among other accents. Add glittered white Thickers and googley eyes - it's ready for a cute spook!

Thanks for stopping by...I'm hoping to get some CHA pictures up but deadlines and life gets in the way so please stay tuned!

Clever idea. I don't celebrate Halloween but I like the spider. I try to use random Halloween themed items in projects for mysteries that I read. Thanks for the inspiration.
