storage for my paper projects...come take a look!

A little spidery spookiness....

There are more layouts to post, but I'll switch to cards for a sec. I got to try out a new die from Sizzix -- and it's 3-D!

Here's my first attempt:

Well, you can't see the die in action yet! Here, it's just a bunch o'pattern, some stickles-covered stamping, and a little pleated accent.
Now, the inside:

It ain't easy photographing a 3-D card interior! I die-cut orange and black glitter cardstock from Best Creations for this one, then sprayed the (white) back with Charcoal Chalkboard glimmer mist...not that you can see it :) Then I made another.
Number 2:

I really like the front of this one -- Cosmo Cricket Matilda paper, Thickers, and some May Arts ribbony/fiber stuff that looks like a cross between Swiss Cheese and a spiderweb.
And here's the inside:

A matte black and grey web and spider this time, and more Matilda. Also hard to photograph!
So, does this die only work inside cards, you ask? Nope! Check it:

Now that's a photo I can get behind. A grey web, popped up with one to three layers of foam tape at various points -- plus a big glittery orange spider. Tee hee. The die-cut is still 3-D, but it sure photographs better! It would also work really well on a Halloween layout. Or one about spiders, if that's your kind of thing. And if it is, I'm worried about you :)

These cards are on display at Scrappy Chic right now, if you'd like to see how much more fun they are in person (and, you know, you live here. Or want to come visit me!). You can get the die there, too, of course!

Thanks for stopping in! I got a Stampin' Up order yesterday that's asking for some attention. I'm on it!

Oohhh, that is one awesome web die and now I want it! Thanks a lot, Ang. :P I love what you did with it on all three of your cards. That fibery-cheese ribbon is so cool!

Have fun with your new SU supplies! Mine will be arriving tomorrow. :D

Awesomeness! That die is so fun--I can see it entertaining the young ones and the old ones when they open up the card! The glittery one is way too much fun. The swiss cheese/spider web ribbon is perfect for the front of the second card, and I really like it the spider web on the front of the last card, too. I may just have to make the trip up there to see 'em in person. ;)
