Along Came a Spider and Text Block: Halloween

Hi there! Welcome to day two of the August Papertrey Ink countdown.  I'm here today to share a few samples using some of this months new dies... Along Came a Spider and Text Block: Halloween. The Along Came a Spider die and stamp set collection is designed to work well for both paper crafting and felt stitching projects. You can use the dies as is, or you can die-cut and then stamp the *stitching* with the coordinating stamps.

Keep in mind that these items will be available for purchase beginning August 15th at Papertrey Ink.  Plus, more info and a detail look at these items can be found on Nichole Heady blog today.

So, let me get right to today's projects...
First up, I used the spider die to stitch a creepy yet cute spider onto my card front.
I stitched and hung him from a piece of orange zest pattern paper using black embroider floss.
My next card uses the die cut spider which I stamped with the coordinating "stitches" image.
I die cut him from royal velvet and mounted him on top of a die cut Text Block: Halloween panel.  Then finished the card off with a Keep It Simple: Halloween sentiment on an angle.
My last card focuses on the Text Block: Halloween die.  I began by die cutting the text block panel from smokey shadow cardsock and mounted it onto my card base.  The card base was embossed using the Along Came a Spider dies and then stamped.
I then die cut the text block from orange zest and plum pudding pattern papers.  Trimmed the words out by hand and attached them into place with a bit of adhesive.

Well, that concludes today's look at Along Came a Spider and Text Block: Halloween. Just remember... this set will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning August 15th
