Creepy Crawly Stampin' Up! Punch Fun

Spiders are creepy...but not when they make googlie eyes at you!  We're getting punchy today with a bunch of punch loving friends!  You're sure to be treated to a whole cast of fun Halloween punch pals that will make you "ooh" and "aah" all the way to Trick-or-Treat!

This little spider isn't an original design.  This little guy has been around as long as the photo corner punch has been in the catalog but I couldn't pass up an opportunity to share him for this fun blog hop.  I was inspired to make him primarily because of the so cool new new Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the Big Shot that you'll find in the current Holiday Mini Catalog.  What goes better with a web than a smiling, googlie eyed spider?? 

All of the supplies used to create this card are from Stampin' Up! {Well, except the google eyes.} The spider was made with the Scallop Circle Punch (head), Photo Corner Punch (legs) and a little piece of the 1/2" Circle Punch (mouth).  The spider web was embossed on a piece of Basic Gray card stock then I went over the embossed parts of the web with some Frost White Shimmer Paint for a beautifully webby shimmer.  Basic Black Satin Ribbon, a Word Window/Modern Label sentiment with Basic Black brads finish off this cute little Halloween Treat.
