That's all for now...

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween...hope you all have a fun weekend - be sure to enjoy the kids!

I made this card for a challenge: the background papers are purple and green 'Silk'; I used Cheery Lynn Designs 'Fancy Flight' die on black card stock; for the spider web moon I inked up the Cheery Lynn Designs 'Feather Embossing Plate' using VersaMark - placed my spider web paper face down on the embossing plate and ran through my Big Shot, then brushed the spider web with purple and orange 'Perfect Pearls', a couple of minutes to dry and dusted off the excess mica powder; cut to fit the moon shape...as well as cutting the leave and stickled orange pumpkin to fit, and then glued these pieces to the back of the 'Fancy Flight' die cut. I used black 'Stickles' on the witch hat and broom. The row of witches at the bottom of the card are ribbon material. My little sign says 'Boo' with the O's being google eyes. I enjoyed this fun project...and I don't usually do Halloween - LOL!

Hope you can see all the glittery details,

Enjoyed making this card for the 'October 2011 Pink Challenge' at 'Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps'...looks a bit red here, but trust me - it's really a hot pink background! I inked this frame stamp by 'Love You To Bits' using black Versafine, heat embossed with clear embosing powder; cut out the cat and attached to my white card. I rubbed Spun Sugar Distress Ink pad to cover a piece of white cardstock; when dry I stamped the Cat stamp by 'Michael Strong' using black VersaFine, and heat embossed with clear embossing powder; colored a few cat sections with RV63 Begonia Copic marker; cut out the cat and layered on the hot pink background using foam pop-up tape; applied jewel embellishments.  There you have it!
