Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog








Thank you for stopping by this is my first challenge designing for the FCCB!! The challenge was to create a creepy crawly with orange somewhere on the project!

I used TBB&M (pg.116-blackout feature) to make this cute purse at 8 3/4" the biggest the Expression would do. Then using my gypsy I used Mini Monsters to cut four spiders at 3/4" without the faces (using the hide feature).

I also cut the purse in black cardstock with a white core. This way I could trim it down to a little smaller than the purse and cuttlebug the black piece using the spiderweb cuttlebug folder. I then used a nail sanding block and sanded the raised embossing web so the white core would show through.

I used Peachy Keen faces for the spiders from thier "Everyday" and "Dolly Dumplin" assortment packs using the 1/2" faces. I used adhesive foam between the spiders and toped off the girl spider with some lipstick and an orange bow with orange stickles.

Everything was inked ,added some white gel pen touches, and put a cute little orange ribbon bow on the side!

Enjoy! Head on over to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog and enter your own creation!
