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.

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!
