So as promised I was working with some Dollar stamps I've been collecting. The spooky cat is from Studio G and the words backgroubd is Stampendous' Autumn Words.  The purple paper started off as regular white carstock and I went in and blended ink directly to the paper.  The words are heat embossed with a sort of sparkly orange, red and yellow embossing powder. And I green stickled the cat's eyes

Next is a spiderweb stamp from Imaginisce from a few years ago.  And the Spooky is inkadinkdo.  Both bought for a dollar.   I used a spider web embossing folder from hobby lobby their own brand Paper Studios.  I will say I'll probably still purchase Stampin Up's version.  The Paper Studio ones are not straight.  They can be kind of bowed and then it warps the paper too.

I realize this is a pretty simple card.  I really wanted to spruce it up a bit but I seem to have packed my Halloween ribbon away and now I can't find it.   In one version I tried adding glow n the dark paint to the Pumpkins and the ghost and skeleton but the paper just sucked it up and it didn't really glow at all.  Theese are Inkadinkdo clear stamps, found them at Michael's.

Well that's it for today.
