Just Us Girls Template Week

So today is my last post as the Featured Designer over at Just Us Girls.  I have had a blast coming up with all the cards and projects using their guidelines!   Thanks for asking me to join in the fun!

Todays challenge is to use a template! The lovely people over at Clear & Simple Stamps  are sponsoring todays challenge.  The winner will recieve a $25 gift certificate to use in their store and there are lots of yummy things over there!  Be sure to check it out!  They graciously provided the DT with a stamp set to use for the challenge and we were asked to use one of the free templates they have on their blog, they are listed in the sidebar. 

I chose the Trick or Treat basket, but instead of making it into a pumpkin I decided to make a cauldron! I switched the cardstock handle for wire, used black cardstock and lined it with some firey fabric!  I put the cardstock through the Big Shot with the swirly Cuttlebug folder.  I made a spider out of two buttons, some wire and a permanent black marker (!) and hung him from the handle with some thin wire.  Added some ribbons and feathers for effect!

I decided to make the little mini pop up card to go along with it.  The cauldron and the sentiment are embossed with black powder.  I used wire to hold the ribbon together at the top.  Here is a picture of just the card.  Included in the stamp set are some cute little stars which I used to make a subtle background using versamark ink.  The little spider is attached to a different sentiment stamp with the same set I just cut him out and popped him on top of a button.

And here is a close up of the groovy little spider!

And just one last picture of the set.

Now it's your turn! Head on over to the JUGS blog and check out all the lovely inspiration form the Design Team and get crafting!  Well have a fabulous day!
