It’s All About the Shoes

Happy Halloween everyone.  This has been such a fun card to make.  I hope those who receive it get a kick out of it (tee hee).

The moonlighting technique is simple and easy to do even though it looks complicated.  A sticky note punched from the 2½” Circle Punch serves as a mask while the sticky part helps keep the mask in place.  Begin sponging with the lightest color around the circle and then move out using the 2 darker colors blending each a little on the way.  Remove the sticky note and you have the moon.  How fun is that?  The fence is created using the Designer Rosette Die.  Thanks to my good peep Sally Nusbaum for letting me borrow her die.

Wicked Cool

Wicked Cool

This is the card we made at my World Card Making Day Open House last Saturday featuring Stampin’ UP’s new Simply Scored scoring tool.  The witch’s skirt was a great starter project for making the accordion folded rosettes that are a HOT trend.  I highly recommend using the lid of a Hershey’s Hot Fudge jar as a positioning tool to keep the rosette in place while applying adhesive.  You could use any jar the matches the measurement of the hot fudge jar but then you wouldn’t be able to have hot fudge sundaes.

Everytime I look this card it reminds me of the lyrics in the Wizard of Oz song, “Ding dong the witch is dead.” 
A BIG thanks to my friend and upline Pam D'Urso for letting me borrow her stamp set.
This card was cased from Julie Arvin.
