3D Paper Trimmer October Blog Hop Halloween


Welcome to the 3D Paper Trimmer October Blog Hop as we showcase Halloween as our theme this month. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as the share ideas and projects to help inspire you to make the most of your Paper Trimmer. 
Today I am sharing a fun fold that I discovered on the Splitcoast Stampers website in their tutorial section. This fun fold is called a Spanner Panel Fold and I followed the directions provided by Wendy Lee that you can find here. The Stampin' Up! Paper Trimmer makes it simple to create the base and layers of this card design and I had a lot of fun creating it. For this design, I used the Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper (item #153517) with the Ghoulish Goodies stamp set (item #153362) as well as the Banner Year stamp set (item #153464) and the Little Treats Bundle (item #155204). All of these amazing products can be found in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.

The thing I love best about this card is all the wonderful layers to the design. The front layers combine the beautiful designer series paper with the embossed panel that I highlighted using the Frost White Shimmer Paint with a Sponge Dauber to make the spider's web shimmer. I attached the metallic ribbon embellished panel across the front of the center panel and attached it to the back of the two narrow panels. I then used the two black embossed cardstock layers over the top to hide where it was attached. The spiders were die cut from the beautiful Black Glitter Paper using the die from the Little Treat Box Dies and I added them to the center panel and embellished them with the Iridescent Pearls. The inside panel was decorated with two of the designer series paper strips onto a Whisper White cardstock panel and I stamped the sentiments using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink and stamped the spiders with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. The sentiments were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White circles and layered onto Granny Apple Green circles. The tags were die cut from Blackberry Bliss cardstock using the die from the Little Treat Box Dies and layered underneath the sentiment labels and attached to the Basic Black cardstock strip with Stampin' Dimensionals. I used the Iridescent Pearls to embellish the sentiment label on the front. 
This Spanner Panel card was so much fun to create and I loved mixing and matching different products to decorate the different layers. It's a great way to transform a traditional card base into something amazing and magical with just a couple of cuts with your Paper Trimmer. I can't wait to try this fun fold for other occasions. 
Thank  you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my fun fold card design will inspire you to use your Paper Trimmer to create cards beyond the traditional.
