Ippity Hop Monday - That's Creepy

With Halloween coming up next weekend, I thought I'd make one last Halloween card using Ippity's only Halloween set, That's Creepy.

I think the spiders are more cute than creepy, but I like all the images in this set. My favorite however is the ornate pumpkin which can be used for not only Halloween but fall themed cards as well.

Purple, yellow and black were the colors I chose for this card along with papers from the Matilda collection by Cosmo Cricket.  For ink, I used the Palette Hybrid inks sold by Unity in the colors of French Lilac, Black Noir, Raw Sienna and Haystack. I liked these inks so much, I decided to sell them in my {ippity} shop along with the stamps.  For the background of the stamped images I used my favorite background stamp A Bit of Burlap.   Did you notice the bow?  I thought it kind of emulated the spiders, you know 6 legs on the spider and 6 loops on the bow with the button in the middle. My new large circle punch from EK Success finished off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of the hop.  Click  here for the complete list of blog participants.

Have  a great day,
Susan

Well, I do love the card, but the bow is particularly adorable. I am going to have to reread and see if you explain how you did those circles. Too cool
