SWAA Nevermore Blog Hop

Welcome to September's Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop.  Are you ready for Fall yet?  It has finally cooled down here and we are so ready to lose the 100 degree days.  Along with Fall comes one of my favorite holidays, Halloween, and Stampers with an Attitude are featuring the Close to My Heart Halloween paper pack, Nevermore.  Who is the Stampers with an Attitude?  It is the Close to My Heart team lead by my fabulous upline, Kimberly Moss. This month I am following  {Denise Elliott.}  

Our blog hop is a circular hop.  You just click on the link to the next blog at the bottom of this post and go visit the next blog.  If you get lost, I have all of the participating blogs listed at the bottom of my post.  Hope you enjoy seeing what our team has made for you.

I am enjoying all of our new Halloween Stamp Sets and embellishments as well as the  supercute Nevermore paper pack.  Look what I made!

What do you think about my card?  Yes, once again I used our new watercolors and watercolor paper, but look at the cool texture.  Can you guess how I did that?  Once I covered my paper with different colors of watercolors I threw on a ton of Kosher salt.  Then I added more water and even a little more color.  It dried overnight and I rubbed off the salt and stamped these cool Steampunk spiders.

But, there is more to this card than meets the eye.  Dontcha hate a naked inside of a card?  Me too.  So I pulled out the Close to My Heart exclusive Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge and made a superduper special Halloween card.  Now check this out.

The Happy Halloween pops out when you open the card.  I used the Nevermore patterned papers and that scary strip at the bottom is one of the zip strips from this paper pack.  I had to add a little glitter so the spider and the spider web are cut from our glitter paper.  The black glittery stars are from our new Black Paper Fundamentals embellishment assortment.

Want to make one of these and have a Cricut Explore?  I have a Design Space file to share:  https://us.cricut.com/design/#/canvas/31276493
