Can you believe it? I'm celebrating 400 posts here on my blog today! It may be a drop in the bucket to some, but for me it feels like a huge accomplishment. It represents a determination to keep creating through self-doubt, fear, and the big old comparison monster. I enjoy creating my little works of art. They make me smile! Scrolling through my blog is like taking a trip through time. Today, I'm sharing my favorite card from the Stampin' Up workshop I attended two days ago.
It uses the super cute Jar of Haunts stamp set. This has been on my wish list since I first laid eyes on it. I want it even more now. lol I stamped the jars on watercolor paper and used markers with a waterbrush to add color. I also used markers for the eyeballs. Just a bit creepy! I cut the jars out with the matching dies.
I stamped the drippy goo image repeatedly across the top of text print paper and colored it in with a Pear Pizzazz marker. To get the shiny effect, I colored it again with a VersaMark marker and embossed with clear powder. It looks really cool in person.
I stamped two spiders directly on the text paper and drew the web lines using a ruler. I did the same thing inside the card.
I stamped the sentiment and punched it out using the old Word Window punch by Stampin' Up. After matting the text print, I adhered the jars and sentiment using foam dots for dimension.
Like I said, this card was my favorite to make at the workshop. I will be back tomorrow to post another one from the same day. Here's to many more creative projects and posts!
