For this creepy hop I made a series of cards using Close to my Heart Artbooking Cricut cart.  This first card uses one of my Judikins Mica Gloss backgrounds.  Isn't it beautiful?  I piled the ink (copper, chocolate, green) on thick and spritz with water as it dried to get the neat effect, the base is Judikins black gloss paper.  I highlighted the green in the background with some green bling and the green sentiment.  I used a Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells stamp and embossed it with Judikins Avocado Twinkle.  I cut the shape from black shimmer paper  at 4.5" and mounted on amber metallic card stock 5x5.  I popped up the cut to add dimension.

I added a little bat and bling on the inside.

The second card is a spider web also cut at 4.5" in silver shimmer paper layered on top of Authentique 6x6 Spirited paper cut down to 4.5" to fit perfectly behind the web. This paper collection is so beautiful I wanted to highlight it as much as possible.  I nested several sticker bugs and a spider in the web.

Inside of card 2
I love this Graphic 45 sentiment and it is perfect for the spider and the web!

The third card is also Authentique Spirited paper.  While doing the "whole card" web, I wanted to bling it but didn't have enough so I made a third card with a "corner" web and bling!  I cut this spider from the Artbooking cart, too and blinged him up!  The sentiment is part of the paper so I added a little wink of stella around the edges.

Close up.  Thanks for checking me out and....
