Booo Spideys


Still playin’ with the spiders from the Googly Ghouls stamp set.  These are decidedly un-scary spiders.  I think it’s the lack of hair (as in hairy legs) and teeth.

  • Googly Ghouls stamp set
  • Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry and Basic Gray card stock
  • Staz-on Black ink
  • Tangerine Tango, Basic Black and Rich Razzlberry Stampin’ Write Markers
  • Color Spritzer
  • Crystal Effects
  • Black striped satin ribbon

 

Solve one problem, start on another – my photo is really washed out.  I need to change my “photo studio” set-up, mostly because it’s nothing of the sort.  But that rant is for another day.

I am really crazy about that new black striped ribbon from the Holiday Catalog.  It is shiny, luxurious, and can cross between elegant and spooky.  It has that softness you need for a card.  Doesn’t it seem like Stampin’ Up! has really gotten the ribbon texture thing DOWN lately?  They’re all so easy to work with.  I think the product design people need some high fives.

Couple things about this card…I just eye-balled the alignment of the spiders but if you really want them straight, use that trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig.  I extended the spider-silk line up the card with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker and you can too.  Use a light touch – I used a ruler to keep me on the straight road.  And (I ask myself) WHY DON’T I USE CRYSTAL EFFECTS MORE OFTEN???  So, so awesome!  You just have to plan ahead and allow time for it to dry.  (*lightbulb moment: this is why I don’t use Crystal Effects more often.)  You may not be able to see it in the photo but it is on those spideys and it makes them pop!
