Stampin'Up! Punch Spider & Mojo Monday 99

This Mojo Monday sketch just said "spider" to me. I have never been a great fan of Halloween but the new Cast-A-Spell Designer Series paper is really striking and fun. And if the skulls scare me, I just have to turn the paper over to something more pleasant on the back! I love Stampin'Up! Designer Series Paper!

The cute little spider came by way of Dawn Griffith at Dawn's Stampin' Thoughts. I didn't have the same size punches she had so mine is a bit different. The phrase is from Teeny Tiny Wishes which, as you can see below, covers many many occasions. It's a great set to have.

Now is a great time to get started on those approaching holidays! Begin thinking of homemade projects you would like to complete this fall. Don't let your list just stay a list! I'm full of ideas and enthusiasm to help turn yours into reality. As an on-line demonstrator I'm here 24 hours 7 days a week to give you ideas, suggestions, instructions, and place your orders!! Seriously though, your enjoyment of Stampin'Up! products and homemade projects are my number 1 priority. Contact me today I'd love to be your on-line demonstrator!

God Bless,

Spider Instructions:
The body is a 1 1/4" circle with a 3/4" circle for the head. The legs were made by first punching two ovals out of a black piece of card stock and then using the scallop oval punch, punching two frames out of the black paper. Cut the thin oval frames in 4 pieces and glue to the back of the body. The spider is mounted on a 1 3/8" circle. I used googly eyes and a white gel pen for details on the spider.
