Treasure, Blog Candy, and a Spider!


AARG it is Treasure Hunt Tuesday...but first..
I currently find spiders annoying. Since my stamp area is in my basement--I often have them as my uninvited companions. Small ones, mind you, but they still spin webs. Eeew!
This little guy, however, is just too cute! He is by Stamp Oasis by Rubbernecker. I stamped him with StazOn onto glossy white cardstock and highlighted him with white crayon. I brayered Broken China ink over the image. Then I wiped off the crayon, and added Shabby Shutters ink to the eyes with a q-tip. I then sponged the edges with Black Soot and splattered some ink on the image with Larry's toothbrush. (Who is Larry?? Someone who needs to get a new tooth brush-tee hee).

Instructions to make the square spring card can be found HERE.

Ok, I seriously do NOT like spiders and find them downstairs all the time! Little ones, black ones, furry ones...... of course none of them are bigger than my little fingernail, but still!!! lol

Your spider, on the other hand, is darling and he can come to my house anytime!!

{Belated birthday wishes to your DH! I know it was almost 2 weeks ago, but forgot to tell you!!}

I've not tried a spring-type card. Thanks for the inspiration to try one!

Hilmarose said...

Cute card! I HATE spiders too... but I am the one anyone screams for when they see one because I am not so scared I won't smash em or take em outside (depending on type/size)

Great spider card...Poor Larry...The kids are always getting new brushes here, like character ones. I take them and use the old ones for cleaning and the littlest one age 5, used to get upset when I did that to his favorite character tooth brush..Hee hee, the old ones work great for misc. cleaning things...even toilets...

Shelly said...

I love this darling card and have yet to try that fold. Ya never know where your toothbrush has been, I hide mine personally....

PatsyB said...

Love your card!! I have also used my husband's toothbrush but that is another story since he is now my ex!! I'll never tell!!
These spring cards are so much fun to do and so easy! I am glad that you reminded me about them! Will have to get back to making more! Thanks for chance to win!
Now be nice and buy Larry a new toothbrush!!

This is so adorable, and I love the whole design!! Sorry I missed you last weekend as well. Maybe next time. *wink*

Debi said...

Not a big fan of spiders but I gotta admit that yours is adorable but you can keep him at your house. I wouldn't want him to bring any of his friends to mine.

Love the card and cute spider! :)

Michelle Adams said...

Super cute card!!! We have had so many spiders in our house this year...maybe it is the wet weather? Wish they would go away! :0) Thanks for the chance at blog candy!

Miriam said...

What a darling card! I love the spider and your technique. I will have to check out the tutorial on the spring card. Spiders are a bit like mice. I love them on cards and in figurines, but can't stand them in real life. Thanks for the chance to win!
