spider spinner card





for this card I used a 8 x 5 1/2 sheet of cardstock for the base and scored it down the middle, I used a  4x51/2 piece of laughing Lola for the front. I cut a 2 1/2 inch circle in both the base and the front  the center of the circle is at  3 1/2 inches from the bottom, 2 inches from the top and 2inches in each side.

I cut the spider web from artbooking photo mat 1 letter v at 5.5 real dial size and the spiders (you will need 2) from letter c at 2 real dial size

I glued a piece of 5inch string in-between the 2 spiders, and taped both the top and bottom of the string to the outside of the base. I then glued the webs to the front if the laughing Lola paper and glued it to the front  to cover the string.

turn your paper and again score at 1/2, 1, 1 1/2, and 2 and at 10, 10 1/2, 11 and 11 1/2


then on the top and bottom of your page score at 2 1/2 down to your third score line


then cut off 1 1/2 X 2 inches of each of your corners and cut the and at the 9 1/2 also down to your third score line

the inside paper measures 7 3/4 x 7 3/4 glue this piece to your center



then fold all your score marks in and put glue down your inter most score line excluding the tabs ( I used a hot glue gun)

Faux Tearing

I drew my inspiration from the layout of the muse challenge this week, which you can find here


I used my paisley perfect stamp set and the lagoon ink on the right side and the swirls around stamp with gypsy ink and also in versamark. I torn a piece of scrap and masked one side as I stamped and inked, then masked the other side and did the same.

card box part 2

ok so I got some messages asking how I made the box, I am still working on my tutorial skills so please go easy on me. I did not decorate the box so that I could keep the video short, it still took 13 hours to upload it!!!!
