Jeepers Creepers!

I really hate spiders!  This time of year really creeps me out.  Seems like there are spiders everywhere and I hear everyone commenting on how big they are this year. 

For Scrap Tiffany we were to use our scraps.  I keep all my scraps in drawers according to color so they are easy to get to.  I found a large (for a scrap) of black and used my new Cricut cartridge October 31st and cut out the spider.  I plumped up it's body with puff paint and added yellow glitter and little red glitter eyes. 

I took the stripe paper and soaked it in water and then distressed it and used some distress ink on it.  I tore up a small piece of cardboard that was sitting in the corner of my room and also used distress ink on it.  I found a scrap of tulle and tied it across the cardboard adding some stuffing from an old dog toy for webbing and then put that nasty spider on top.

I think it turned out pretty good for only using scraps.

We all have CARDSTOCK

The challange this week was to only use cardstock.  We all have some of this and use it to accent other paper on our page layouts and cards.  I took nine different colors and ran the 1 1/2 inch squares through nine different embossing folders.  I didn't think I had that many!

It's hard to see in the picture but I also popped up three of the squares to give some dimention to the card.  It was my DIL's birthday on the 2nd so this birthday card went to Lindsey.
