So I just fell in LOVE with the "Halloween Cat" stamp set!    

It's so adorable!  I went to work :)

First, I ran a piece of black cardstock through my BigShot using a spider web embossing folder.  Then I used my finger tool and rubbed Black Ash & Indian Gold Embellishment Mousse over the embossed panel, creating the fun background.

I stamped the large cat image onto a piece of white cardstock using Versamark Ink and sprinkled on Fleur de Lis Embossing Powder, heat setting from underneath.  Then I fussy cut out the image. I rubbed on some of the Black Ash Embellishment Mousse around the edges.  The sentiment was stamped with Versamark Ink and I used Antiquities embossing powder to accent it. Black Ash Mousse was also rubbed on the edges. I made some fun accents using the Ebony Black and Ripened Pumpkin Nuvo Crystal Drops. 

All of the layers were adhered using 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and I popped up the image/sentiment using Foam Squares

I'm so glad you stopped by the blog hop!  I'm the last stop, so if you are just starting here, you can restart from the beginning on Eret's blog.  Be sure to leave some designer love - we love to hear your comments!

Until next time,

  7. An interesting us of products to make this your own.

  12. Looks like another new product that I need to check out.
    Love the look of the cat. the shabby turn of the

    thanks for sharing a great card.

  13. Absolutely elegant Halloween card!! Halloween is my favorite and you've given me some great ideas. I can't wait to get started on my own. If you'll excuse me, I'll go get started right now.... Thanks!!

  14. Great Halloween card. Love the spider web embossing.

  15. Fabulous card Jess, and your background is amazing!

  16. I love the Nuvo on the embossed spider web. I also like overall distressed look of the card.

  17. Absolutely creepy spider web background. That mousse works great on the embossing! Fab embossing on the image, but curious as to why you heat set it from underneath? I'm not familiar with that technique. This has been a great hop. Thanks for participating.

    1. Hi Deb! The Chunky Embossing powders are best set from underneath as they are heavier and the heat tool would just blow them off the Versmark! :) thanks for asking!!

  18. Fun!! The Fleur de Lis is perfect. Love the background too. Wonderful!

  19. Ooooo, I love that embellishment mouse. The card looks great. Well done.

  20. This embossed background is so cool. Love the metallic sheen on it. Your embossed cat is perfect too. Such an awesome Halloween card, Jess!

  21. BOO-tiful card!!!
    LOVE the cat scene & sentiment, LOVE your textures and shine too!!!
    THANK YOU for sharing :)

  22. Great texturing. I love threw techniques. Beautiful card!

  23. Wonderful card. I love all your fantastic textures.

  24. The spider web embossing really takes this card to the next level. It's awesome and so textural...great colors too!
