Spooky Page for Club Tonight!

 Are you ready for some little ghosts and bats? I have the perfect page for pictures of the little goblins in your life :-) This page has a bunch of little homemade embellishments. I got the inspiration for the ghosts and pumpkin embellishment from a page Holly Pedersen made for a swap I did not participate in but saw on Cheryl's blog here. I changed a few things, but the basic idea is the same.

 This is the title at the top of the page. I know, do I really have to put stitching on so much stuff? Yes. Yeas I do. It's what I do! ;-)


And how about some bloodshot eyeballs for your page. They are made with the spider web stamp from Wicked Cool. I used a Basic Black marker to make thepupils and a white gel pen to make highlights on them. I would have used the Black Flourish Designer Jewels but I would not have had enough for everyone at club (I've used too many for myself ;-)  ).

 This is the bottom corner embellishment. I used Basic Gray card stock for the Top Note, then ran it through the Big Shot with the Spider Web embossing folder. Then I used a sponge dauber and the Platinum Shimmer Paint to highlight the spider web. It looks really spooky! And you all know how much I love my tools :-) Use 'em if you've got 'em is what I always say! The pumpkin is Wide Oval punch, the vine is the Swirls sizzlet. Look how the bottom off the largest swirl makes a perfect stem with the vines peeking over the side. The ghosts are the body of the 2-Step Owl punch upside down with the feet cut off, then sponged with Sahara Sand ink. The eyes are the smallest Black Flourish Designer Jewels. I really hope Stampin Up! will carry these over after the Holiday Mini ends. They are perfect for all kinds of eyes and so many other things! And of course, we couldn't have a Halloween page without using the Bitty Bat punch :-)


Here is the whole page without pictures on it. I didn't have enough of any one paper from the Wicked Fun DSP pack, so there will be a few choices tonight with the same embellishments. Everyone will have an original!
