Caught in the Web


Okay, I'm loving the MOJO sketches this week. They really help with putting a card together lickety split!! I used todays MOJO 100 sketch by Sarah.

As many of you know, I'm a HUGE My Mind's Eye fan!! Normally I'm not much into Halloween, but these Boo To You papers were just too charming to resist. Plus, I have some cute JR images from the Witch Way To The Treats set that go super with them.

Now, I'm sure someone has thought of this already, but when I saw the Spellbinders Inverted Circles, I thought they would make fabulous spiderwebs. They're simple as pie to make. I just took a straight edge and a White Opaque Pen (Ranger Inkssentials), and drew from point to point. Then I added little scallops between each line.

The borders were made with the new Spider Web Border Punch by Martha Stewart, and I added a bit of embellishments with Black Rhinestones (Kaisercraft) in the corner, and a Ivory Burlap String bow to the edge of the web. This spider likes to tie things off nicely.

Thanks for dropping by!!
Happy Stamping!
