Halloween Among the Branches

IMG_6965What is Halloween without a spider web, a spooky spider and ghosts?!   This card has them all along with glittery paper!

I used many fabulous new products on this card.  The only things not new are the Pumpkin Pie card stock and ink!  Oh…and the Very Vanilla card stock.

Don’t you love the Spider Web Doily.  It is so fun!  Unfortunately the Spider Web Doilies are also very popular and are on back-order.  🙁  You can still order them but you won’t have them for Halloween.  There’s always next year’s projects though.  Right?  I also love the Black Glimmer Paper.  Oooo!  It goes so well with the Happy Haunting Designer Paper….Of course it does!  Stampin’ Up! loves coordination almost as much as I do!

I do have a story about this card though.  Naturally I got the idea for this card from Pinterest.  (Love that site!)  When I went to make my sample to see if it was “class worthy” I couldn’t figure out how they punched/die cut out the “spooky” circle.  I checked all my circle punches and every single circle framelit in the set and none of them fit.  I finally cut the darn thing out by hand!  I know….fussy cutting!  Yikes!

After I got the card together and had moved on to other things I thought to check the catalog to see if I was missing something.  Sure enough….did you know that Stampin’ Up! has a 2″ Circle Punch?  It’s not even new this year and I didn’t have it!  I have almost every tool in the darn catalog!  How had I missed that one?  Luckily I still had to order all of the supplies for my Halloween class so that 2″ Circle Punch was the first item on the order form.  Sheesh!  I guess I need to start going through the new catalog with a fine tooth comb so I don’t miss anything else!

I just happened to have the catalog open to the punch page while I was writing this and noticed that there’s a 1 1/2″ Circle Punch with the word “NEW” by it.   Hmmm……I better add it to my next order…

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
