A spider's web on a card is a great way to add a graphic nature to your design. Case in point, see these two Halloween cards. Anthonette Chavez created this rounded edged masterpiece with spider's web and finished it off with Skellanimals sentiment "I've got time to waste" and spider. I respect the time it took her to cut out and color in the stamps – it shows care in her work (always true of Anthonette's work). The Skellanimals collections are fantastic for Halloween. Note the tagline "Dead animals need love, too." Check them all out here (http://www.psaessentials.com/skelanimals.htm) and let us know what you think. All week long, your comments enter you to win a Haunted Shack Peel & Stick stamp set. (Limit 1 comment per day please.)
Our contributor Monika Wright designed this card "Happy Halloween" from our UBU Happy Halloween Peel & Stick collection (http://www.psaessentials.com/ubu.htm). These adorable UBU characters add much character to your designs. She's used black and white twine from The Twinery to create a spider's web of sorts. I like that Monika is not afraid of white space. All too often, designers feel the need to address all areas of the space. Sometimes – it adds a lot to your design.
Monika also created this fun and easy pencil holder using UBU Happy Halloween stamps, black and white twine from The Twinery, and a fun pencil. This is a great classroom project, easy to make with your kids, or a favor at a kids party.
I look forward to your comments and hope we've inspired some ideas for the upcoming Halloween…. Still 12 weeks away so there's plenty of time.
