HSS 136

Hi stampers!  It's Tuesday again and you know what that means!  I fun new challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  This week is a technique challenge and I have to say I wasn't thrilled when I first saw it.....

Why?  Well because we don't have kids yet so I didn't have any crayons around the house and I kept forgetting to pick any up-)  BUUUUUT after a quick trip to Walgreens I came home and got to work and ohmygosh is this fun and looks so cool!  I may or may not have had to try it out with ALL my embossing folders once I got going, ha!  Seriously it's so fun!  And that's why I love these challenges!  They push me out of my comfort zone and make me try things I wouldn't normally do!  And now I have a box of crayons (minus the white one...which no one really uses anyway) for if the soon-to-be niece and nephew come over!

You can find a great tutorial HERE if you aren't familiar with it.  Now, while I made a bunch of backgrounds, I chose to do my card with the one I had the original idea for since I need to get a move on the Halloween cards!  As a side note the woodgrain embossing folder looks wicked awesome like this!

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Googly ghouls, spooky bingo bits
Paper:  Whisper white, basic black, rich razzleberry
Ink:  Basic black, rich razzleberry, tangerine tango, versamark
Accessories: Circle and scalloped circle punches, basic black polka dot ribbon, spider web embossing folder, googly eyes, crayon, stampin' spritzer, brayer, black embossing powder

Eeek, isn't it cute?:-)  These are seriously some of the most cool backgrounds I've ever made!  One detail you may not be able to see is that I embossed the spider.  He's shiny and cool!

Now head on over and see what the rest of the DT came up with!  And don't forget to play along!

Happy stamping!


  1. Very cute Mindy! That folder was very popular with this challenge.

  2. Oh I LOVE your spider web... I suck at reading instructions and your web is AWESOME!! I didn't expect anything less to come from you though, ;-)

  3. I love your projects week after week, but I also love the stories you tell with them.... A special trip for a white crayon would annoy me at first too, luckily the outcome was worth it!

  4. EEeek! I love your orange embossing spider web, and the BIG googly eyes on your spider, it's so stinking cute! And yes, now I have a box of crayons minus the white too, since I had to peel the wrap off and then broke it twice by accident, haha! :)Erika


Thanks for your comments. I probably won't respond unless you ask a direct question (because I know my limits, lol) but I read and appreciate every single one <3
