An Icky Spooky Boo!!

I made this card for two challenges over on Split Coast today - the CAS (clean and simple) challenge was to pop up something on your card using foam dimensionals. The Try a New Technique challenge was to make your own stamp using a piece of Fun Foam and a Cuttlebug folder.
On the left above is the 4"x5 1/4" piece of Fun Foam that I cut and then ran through my Spider Web Cuttlebug Folder (shown on the right). You can see the web impression embossed on the foam. I ran tape along the back of the roam and attached it to my acrylic block. Then I inked the foam with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped it on my card.

I stamped three spiders and the BOO (Waltzingmouse Stamps - Halloween Party) cut out the spiders and punched the BOO and adhered them over the web using foam dimensionals. I originally only put one spider on the web - but multiplying by 3 increased the icky-scary-spooky factor don't you think???!!! LOL!!!

Thanks for coming by today - hope everyone who has Labor Day off is enjoying their day - I'm off for a walk with DH - I've been stamping all morning - time to get some fresh air (then I can stamp again) !!!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Halloween Party
Paper: PTI, Ripe Avocado
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Spider web Cuttlebug folder, Circle punch, foam dimensionals, Fun Foam.
