Freshly Made Sketches #49

Happy Thursday to you all. Only one more day left and we are at the weekend! I have some serious crafting to do and a wedding to go to on Friday night. Busy busy! Today’s post is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. Jen Mitchell has given us this very clean sketch…

For all of you that are wonderful enough to stop by and read my blog every day I usually have a long list of products that I use. For today’ card the list is uncharacteristically short so the card must be very clean and simple! The base of my card is Basic Gray Card Stock cut to 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″. Square cards are extra postage but you could put this one in a standard envelope. I used a piece of Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper for the strip across the bottom. The spiders are form the Ghoulish Ghouls Stamp Set and are stamped in Basic Black. I used the 1″ Circle Punch to punch them out and they are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Toxic Treats Stamp Set and is stamped in Basic Black on Tangerine Tango Card Stock. I used my Paper Snips to flag the ends and fluffed them up a bit, it is also mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For a cute little extra I stamped the bat, also from Ghoulish Ghouls, in Basic Black and cut him out with my Paper Snips. I put two of the Googlies (eyes) on him and adhered him to the card with still more Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the Halloween stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog and the Designer Series Paper is some of the best yet. I hope that you enjoyed this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge card and thank you so much for visiting! Have an awesome day! πŸ™‚

  1. I love this card! You didn’t over-do it with googlie eyes on all the spiders, just that fun touch on the bat. It’s a perfect example of what CAS means. Thank you so much for sharing it. I’m so so glad I’ve found your blog and have the opportunity to see your creations.

    Sincerely, Kathy Liu


    1. Thank you Kathy Liu! I thought that if I did the spiders it would have been too much, I’m glad you agree! I’m happy that visited, have a nice day! πŸ˜‰

  2. Great Job, Justin! Love the rosette with the sentiment attached. Guess I’m going to break down and buy Toxic Treats.. Been on the fence with that one but you pushed me off!

  3. This is adorable! I thought about using dangling spiders for this card and changed my mind at the last minute, so I’m glad to see my idea had merit! Love the colors and the cute images with their wide-eyed look! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
