I just got this adorable vampire Edwin stamp and I had to use him on something. I took my Cuttlebug embossing folder of the haunted house and inked up the raised side of the folder with black ink and a brayer, then I put my white cardstock on top of that with 2 shims and both the B plates. I did not fold the folder over, I left it open if that makes any sense at all. Then I colored in the uninked spots with my copic markers. Edwin is colored with copics as well. To decorate the side of the card, I used the Martha Stewart drippy goo punch. This punch is awesome for Halloween projects and so much more. If you want one, go here ASAP. Cindy has already sold out of this punch once, she now only has 8 left from this order so jump on it! I also used one of the new Cuttlebug border folders for the diamond embossed strip. This was done with the black magic core'dinations paper with a green core to add to the spooky feel of the card. I finished it off with the trick or treat sentiment from the Scent my Cards Best Witches set available on stampingscrapping.com and trimmed the mat with the drippy goo punch also. All that's left is to make it smell as much like Halloween as it looks, so I added some black licorice scent my cards and it is ready to go!

as well. Then you cut the part of the image out of the paper (on these two I cut out the dresses) and glue it to the corresponding part of the image you have stamped on the white paper. It is easiest to move the paper than to move your scissors, sharp small scissors work best, and I always cut toward the inside of the outline when I do it. So, get out some stamps, some paper, and your sharp scissors and give it a try. You can post your creation on Scrappy Frogs to try and win a 6 x 6 Basic Grey paper pad. Both of the cards I made were made with Basic Grey paper. It is my favorite.

k. I prefer to use the full sheet labels so that I can cut them to any size I want them to be. I die cut this label with a nestabilitie so that it would be in a fun shape for my card. Next, you will need 2 contrasting colors of glitter. I chose black and orange. Now for the fun part, pick your lace. I have this lace with a spider web pattern that is perfect for a Halloween project. While at the convention, we also got some lace with tiger stripes, swirls, flowers, and skulls and crossbones (of course).
If you lace has any shiny parts to it like the webs in this lace, stick your label to the other side. Lay you label with the sticky side on the lace and rub it in really good. Pay special attention to the edges.
Then, flip the lace over and cover with your first color of glitter. I used the black first.
Shake off the excess glitter and remove the label. This is what you will have. the majority of the label will be colored with the black glitter but the solid parts, in this case the webs, will be exposed and still sticky.
Dump the second color of glitter on and shake the excess off.
This will be your final result. Very sparkly, very cool, and very simple. Then you can take your label, apply adhesive and use it on your project.
I chose to use this piece on a Halloween card with an adorable Halloween Tilda stamp. I added some spiders that I cut on my cricut, some core'dinations cardstock embossed with the new Cuttlebug harlequin folder.

from Paper Pups. I cut the dug out separately on paatterned paper to make it stand out more and colored the beak orange. I love wiggly eyes, so I added them to the pig and the duck. The wave border on the bottom is from Life's A Beach and the sentiment- you're so invited is from Cuttin Up. After I got it all put together, I figured I needed one more finishing touch, so I scented it with Pina Colada scent from scent my cards to make it smell like the pig was wearing his sunscreen.
