You're Fangtastic!! (GD Gig #9)

I have a Halloween project for you today. I was asked to join Craftin' Desert Divas as a guest designer for this week. I am so excited!

Here's all the info!

Welcome to a new Craftin Desert Divas linky party!!!
We would love for you to join us and share your Halloween creations.

Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party here. I will designate a theme and invite you to share projects you've made!!

And don't forget about the prizes! Every linky party will have a sponsor and a winner, plus a top 3! The winner will be announced on a semi-weekly basis. The more times you link up, the more chances you have to win!! Sponsors will be announced at the beginning of every linky party.

This party sponsors are...

CDD- One stamp set

The Cutting Cafe' - Any 2 files winners choice

Digital Delights by Louby Lou - $5 gift card

I got to use this 'You're Fangtastic!' clear stamp set. It's adorable and small enough to use on just about any project. (I am currently working on some teacher gifts that are embellished with this stamp.) 

The designer paper is from Doodlebug's Halloween Parade. I love this paper! It's perfectly Halloween without being scary. My kids (and most of the ones that I am crafting for) aren't into the scary part of Halloween yet. I used my Tim Holtz tag die to create the tag, cutting the DP just a bit smaller with my paper trimmer. The spider was die cut with my Shapabilities dies and coordinating scalloped circle dies.

I embossed my spider with white embossing powder and the sentiment with black, both from Stampin' Up. I tried to emboss my spider twice but the second time I added the powder, it stuck everywhere! I used my Embossing Buddy the first time, should I use it between every layer? Any help would be appreciated. :)

The ribbon is from the Target dollar spot and the twine is from their 'craft' section. I also found the rhinestones in the dollar section as well. You can't really tell in the pictures, but the rhinestones are orange, purple, and black, very bright and glittery.

The back is just black card stock so I will use a white gel pen to write my note.

I haven't decided yet who this bookmark/tag is going to; one of the kids or the librarian at their school who I volunteer for on a weekly basis. Either way, I think someone will be happy to have it. :)

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
