Creeping By To Say Hi!...{MCT Thrifty Thursday}

Good morning everyone and welcome to another
My Creative Time's ~Thrifty Thursday.
A day set aside to share any type of project using our scraps/leftovers or recycling items as well as using My Creative Time stamps and dies!

For my project today, I used a scrap of designer paper that I die cut a circle into for another project and ended up scratching that idea and that awesome spider web and spider I had left over from my last Halloween card I made. My process of making cards always changes, so I end up cutting out several pieces, playing around with my design and then placing whatever cuts I don't use into a container for another time. I then can take this opportunity~ Thrifty Thursday~ to use some of those cuts.

Here is the card I made. A fun shaker card and I really love the way it turned out! Super cute and so not spooky cause let me tell you...I HATE spiders...LOL!
Like I said up top, I had this gray and white polka dot paper from Lawn Fawn that I had cut to size and die cut with a circle from the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies and then ended up not using it. I knew it was going to be a shaker card~I had already put the acetate on the back, but placed it aside for another project. Tada...that is today :)
Before filling my card with sequins, I stamped my sentiment using the Trick or Treat stamp set and then filled it with purple and orange sequins. Big circle...LOTS of colorful sequins!
Then I used a extra spider web and spider I had cut out from the Wicked Fun Dies set and glued it to the front of my card. I added glossy accents to the spider to make him look more dimensional and then attached him to the web hanging from a sequin.
Some random additional sequins and my card was complete.

  9. I am not a fan of spiders either and this is the time of year they like to sneak inside too :( Now maybe if they made some noises and hung from sequins I would like them better...sort of! Great shaker!

  12. Definitely cool and not too spooky. When you make your shaker cards do you use foam tape or make the multiple layers? How thick is yours?
