Arachnophobes beware...

...it feels like so long since my last post...things have been really hectic here depriving me of crafting time but finally I managed to get in my crafty hideaway today and come up with some Halloween creations.

It's also been a long time since I've made something other than a card. I really enjoy making other papercraft creations but get so little time just to play.

HALLOWEEN 1


I have made the card especially for this week's challenge over at Less Is More which is one layer challenge called "Seeing Double".

2 spiders, and now I look again, 2 webs!

HALLOWEEN 2

The glassine gift bag is by Papertrey. I've used black Stazon to carefully stamp the web on to the bag and left it to dry for approx 10 minutes. Then I just added a fun tag using a Waltzingmouse sentiment.


HALLOWEEN 3

I started to get carried away and thought it would be great to do a Halloween cracker...I mean why not, crackers are not just for Christmas! I think these would be great for a Halloween party.

HALLOWEEN 5

The cracker is pictured here with my new cutlery set from Next.

HALLOWEEN 4

And finally, one more photo. The rest of the stamps I've used are by Inkadinkado.


HALLOWEEN 6


Well I had a lot of fun with these little creations, I hope you like them too!

Wow Sarita and double wow!! I normally hate Hallowe'en cards as i am terrified of spiders and don't like the colour orange you see on a lot of Hallowe'en cards; but the stylised webs and spiders on this are absolutely beautiful!! In fact so much so i feel inspired to make some cards along these lines myself this year :-)
