I have more halloween fun to show you!

HI, again, Stampers!!!!

First off, if you are reading this and this is the first time you have stopped by today...be sure to scroll down...this is my second post today! Can you believe it????

Well, I started this card the other night. It is a totally simple card...let me tell you....it is simple!!!! But...I did use Tombo mono multi adhesive and chunky glitter, so I wanted it to sit overnight...my overnight turned into a few days. lol!!!! I made this with my niece in mind...she has an older brother so she loves anything creepy crawly. I did her creepy crawly...but "girled" it up a little. What do you think???


I drew the spiderweb free hand with a pencil onto lovely lilac card stock. I, then, traced it with the small tip of my tombo mono multi adhesive and then poured on the black chunky glitter. I didn't dump it...I left it sit there over night. You don't want to dump the mono multi with glitter unless it is dry. So set it out of your way and let it dry.

Then this morning...I thought I need to get that card done before glitter goes everywhere....and I mean everywhere!!! lol! So......I pulled out some punches....i {luv} my punches! {blush}

I punched four photo corners out of basic black and lavender lace. I only used the four large lavender lace corners and the four small black corners. The punch a basic black scallop circle. I adhered it all together....and viola....spider body! I punched two 1/4 inch circles with whisper white and drew in the black pupils and then accented that with my white gel pen. I hand drew on the little mouth. I wanted to "girl" it up a bit more....so I pulled out a scrap of wide organdy ribbon that came around a pair of pajamas. I'm telling you....throw nothing away!!! There are ribbons on more things than you think...lol!!! I put it in between a little purple flower brad that I had in my stash and adhered it to the spider head. so girly....don't you think???

My sentiment in from All Holidays, I stamped it in basic black. The card base is pumpkin pie.

Now, before I leave you today....I want to give you a little reminder of sorts.....

The scallop circle punch fits perfectly onto a small peppermint patty....so You could do this little spider thingy onto Halloween candy!!!!! Don't you love it?????

Paris.....you were looking for a backup plan for your brownies.....would this fit the bill???

oh that's great! I love the chunky glitter on the web. I've seen webs on other cards and thought that it wasn't SU products, but this is good.
