Happy Spider Family




Another Coffin Box from Creative Cuts and More! I had this cut in my favorite Onyx Stardream. I used SU!'s cheesecloth background stamp to stamp in Versamark and emboss in Ranger Snowflake. I can't even begin to tell you how sparkly this is! The spiders are from CC&M as well, they are cut out of tacky tape. I put them on the box then covered them with black micro beads. My micro beads secret is that after I apply my micro beads, I add matching glitter. I love the coverage I get with this method, plus it adds sparkle, and that's good, right? Here I used Doodlebug Beetle Black Sugar Coating Glitter. For the eyes, I used red glass rhinestones from CC&M's new wheel. I LOVE this wheel! It was worth every penny! There are so many colors, plus storage and a little mounting wand. It's a new must have for me!!

Hello Carla!!!!!!! I am soooo glad you said halloo!!!! Now that I've found it, I now have your rockin blog in my "check regularly!" blog bookmarks!

Your spidey coffin is totally awesome!! The effect you achieved with the cheesecloth stamp is so striking -- at first I thought you'd wrapped actual cheesecloth on your project!!!!! What a fantastic Hallowe'en project!!!!
