Spooky Spider Webs


     I love fall!  There’s a crispness in the air, the hoot owls are heard high in the treetops and the spiders cast their webs outside the kitchen window each night.  Perfect spot for catching the little bugs that are attracted to the light.  The boys have enjoyed watching one ‘resident’ spider each evening.  It really is amazing how he goes about his work.  Now you have the inspiration behind this cute set.  That and the fact that this Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is offered in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  I couldn’t resist! 100_1672

     I began with a Basic Black card base.  The gorgeous striped paper is found in Wicked Fun Specialty Designer Series paper.  I ran it through the Big Shot using the Spider Web folder.  Then I used the sanding block in the Distressing Essentials kit to sand the raised, embossed image (the web).  I love using this technique on DSP!  Because the DSP has a white core, it highlights your image.  A “WOW” at every workshop!  I placed a row of jewels from the Black Flourish Designer Jewels set (also in the Holiday Mini Catalog) between the DSP and card base.  The ‘bow’ is simply a 3” piece of Black Waffle Paper 100_1675secured together in the middle with a Rich Razzleberry Designer Button and some Linen Thread.  I stuck a few more black jewels in the button center as well…just for fun.  The sentiment is found in the House of Haunts set.

     The Mini Lunch Sack is done in much the same way.  Run it through the Big Shot with the Spider Web 100_1679folder.  I recommend not shimming it so much as the folder embossed the image clear through the bad in some spots.  A left over piece of the Wicked Fun DSP was placed across the bottom of the bag and the ‘bow’ features an Old Olive Designer Button.

     Thanks so much for stopping in today.  I hope you’ve gotten stuck in a web of inspiration!  Have a blessed day!
