Fuzzy Spiders and Glow In The Dark Webs


Hi, and welcome back! Today I'm Guest Designer for Whimsy Stamps Blog and I had the pleasure of creating with these adorable Fuzzy Spiders. How perfect are they for those Too Cute to Spook cards you need this year's Halloween. As always, I have a video to share with you and you can find it over on my YouTube Channel or right here on my website.



Stamp the medium spider five times using bright inks in the colors Lime Green, Ultra Pink, Orange Slush, Grape Juice, and Audrey Blue onto #80 cardstock.





You can fussy cut the spiders out but I used the Scan N Cut. It makes things a bit quicker.








Cut a piece of acetate to 37/8" x 37/8", adhere to stamped, and die cut panel using a heavy-duty adhesive. Add 3D mounting to the backside of the acetate. Be sure there are no gaps between your foam to ensure your sequins don't fall out. Essentially, you're creating a dam for the sequins. Lay sequins on top of a card base, remove the backing from foam, and adhere panel over sequins, pressing firmly to create a tight bond between paper and foam. Set the shaker card aside.


Stamp the Happy Halloween sentiment in the center of the one card base using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.





Stamp cobweb on card base using Versafine Onyx Black ink.









Add 3D mounting foam to the back of two of the stamped and die cut panels and adhere them to the card bases with the stamped sentiment and image. I do believe that finishes up the card bases. Now we just need to add the spiders, sentiment banners, and enamel dots.



Add googly eyes with liquid adhesive and an action wobble to the back of the lime green spider, Adhere to card base. Use mounting foam to adhere spiders and sentiment strips.



How cute is this big fuzzy guy?

I had an extra stamped and die-cut panel, added mounting foam to the back of it, use the lime green ink and blend the ink straight to a card base, stamp the spider with black ink, run through Scan N Cut or fussy cut, add mounting foam to the back of the spider, stamp the sentiment, and then adhere the stamped, die cut panel over the ink blended card base, add spider and finish off with two black enamel dots for the eyes. Different sized enamel dots add a fun, goofy touch making him extra cute.
