Two Old Bats – October Anything Goes

It’s a new month and a new mood board with the Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge. I decided to take my inspiration from the black and white on the mood board. Using Pretty Pink Posh’s Boo stamp set, coordinating die and the Spider Web Stencil, I created my black and white Boo card. After die cutting out the letters and cutting down a transparency to size, adding foam tape, opted out on making this a shaker card. I know it would have been perfect for a shaker but I’m not always a fan of them and also not very successful either. Anyway using the stencil on black cardstock, I pounced white pigment ink from Gina K Designs over it and gave it a spray of perfect pearls/water combo. Adhered everything and the card was just a little too stark white for my liking so then stamped the spider included in the stamp set makings a spidery border. I also added some clear heat embossed spiders on black and die cut just incase I didn’t have enough spiders.

This is a great day to make some cards. I had three different events yesterday so we decided to stay home to watch the final game of a disappointing baseball season for our Phillies. Here’s to hoping they can pull out the final game with a win. Eagles already lost so it will not be a happy day for Philadelphia sports fans to have two teams lose game.

Thanks for stopping in for a peek. Have a great day and stay safe.

  1. Gayle, your card can definitely boast about having more than enough spiders! You did a great job with this. I do recommend trying shakers a few more times, they are lots of fun to both make and receive. Anti static powder run around the inside helps a lot.

    1. LOL…I don’t even like spiders. I’m much better making the flat shakers than the popped up ones since I always seem to spring a leak. Thanks for commenting.

  2. EEEK!!! Spiders and more spiders, just perfect for Halloween, when I get cobwebs in my house I tell people I am just decorated for Halloween early lol! Cute cute card!! Thank you for joining our challenge at Two Old Bats!
