Well, it looks like our run of good weather is going to come to an end on Sunday night. We’re finally supposed to get some rain, but luckily the temperatures will still stay in the 70’s. It’s Friday today, which as you know, makes me a very happy person. Tomorrow, I will be going into Manhattan for a little while to see some peeps, and then back home in the evening for some crafty goodness because tomorrow is World Card Making Day!
Now for today’s card which is my Design Team card for this week’s Fab Friday color challenge…
The obvious choice for these colors was Halloween, and usually I wouldn’t do that but I wanted to play with my new Photo Polymer Set. The base of the card is Tangerine Tango. For the background I heat embossed the spiderweb from the Bite Me Photo Polymer Stamp Set with Basic Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Rich Razzleberry. I also did the same to two of the spiders and cut them out with my Paper Snips; Stampin’ Dimensionals hold them in place on the web. A piece of Witches’ Brew Designer Series Paper goes across the bottom. My Old Olive tag is rounded at the top with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch and flagged at the bottom. Some Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the Halloween Bash Stamp Set give us the greeting and a piece of “Vintage” Very Vanilla 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon finishes off the tag. Three tickets from the That’s the Ticket Stamp Set stamped in Tangerine Tango across the bottom complete the card. My favorite part about the Photo Polymer stamps is that since they’re clear you don’t need a Stamp-a-ma-jig to get a perfect placement. I hope you enjoyed my Fab Friday Design Team card for this week’s color challenge. Creep on over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has for inspiration and enter one of your cards in the gallery. Thanks for crawlin’ by and have yourself a fab Friday!
