An Eerie Tale

I have long been an admirer of the Graphic 45 paper line.  While visiting the wonderful Memories and Beyond scrapbook store this past summer, I absolutely fell in love with their line entitled An Eerie Tale.  I purchased the designer paper that was my favorite and a sheet of their heavy-weight stickers.  This is the result: 

An Eerie TaleThis is a fun card with a Perfect Plum, Tangelo Twist and Very Vanilla color scheme.  The Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder adds a touch of grandeur.  The Tangelo Twist ribbon is the perfect shade for this DSP.  I must admit that when I made the samples, I discovered I did not have the Tangelo Twist ribbon, but it has since arrived and will be on the table to use for this card.   Note the sticker that has been popped up askew on an Elegant Eggplant banner.  The banner framelits make it so easy to create any size banner.  I used the Scallop Tag Topper Punch to add a curvy top to the banner.  Although my card stock was less than the 2” the Tag Topper is made for, I simply centered the banner and punched.  For a bit of bling, I tinted a large rhinestone and added it to the lower right hand corner.

Eerie Tale Fright Night insideThe inside of your card can be nice – or not so nice.  I used the Frightful Wreath stamp set ($14.95) that I had purchased to embellish my Frightful Wreath Simply Created Kit which hangs just inside the front door.  Did you know that you can curve the photopolymer stamps?  The “Fright Night” I used for the inside of this card is actually a straight stamp, but I curved it to fit better on my card stock.  A small piece of DSP was adhered to the bottom of my message layer to carry thru the theme.



This is the last of our projects for October Stamp Camp.  Cost is $12 for coming to Stamp Camp or for the kit to complete at home.  Dates/times are October 2 (2 – 9 PM), October 3 (2 – 9 PM) and October 4 (9 AM – 4 PM).  It is helpful if you can let me know which day you might be attending.
