Dotty Spiders

 Hi Everyone,

I am playing along with the Day of the Month Card Club - the theme is dots. Now I do have plenty of dotty stamps, stencils and dies, but I wanted to go a different route. So I used punches and patterned paper to create those spiders. The googly eyes add another set of dots...I go inspired for those spider by Maile Belles from Simply Stamped.
For the legs I used a Stampin' up spider, but the body was not big enough, so I masked of half of the spider with Scotch tape and stamped it three times. Then I masked off the other side and used a stamp positioned to get the legs into the right spot. 
Glued the spider bodies over the stamped body and added the spider heads with foam tape. Added the googly eyes. Stamped the sentiment and added a thin strip of Washi tape.

You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey.

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
