Scaredy Cat

Welcome to the Halloween Blog Hop!

I am very excited to be a part of this great hop with these fabulous ladies. You should have gotten here from Star's Blog. If not, hop back to Jen's blog to start at the beginning and to enter in all the giveaways!

The hop is from October 1-3 so be sure to come back again and leave us comments as we are giving away lots of goodies!

This card was so much fun. I made it while I was on Skype with Maggie who is the owner of the Cuttlebug Challenge blog - of which I am honored to be a part of the design team.

I made it after I received My Pink Stamper's Spooky Puns™ to go with it.

Recipe:
Adhesive: Glue Arts™, Martha Stewart Crafts™ gel adhesive, pop dots
Ribbon: JillyBeanSoup™
Glitter: Pink Paislee Pixie Stix™
Journal Card: Pink Paislee™ Twilight Collection™


Instructions:
1. I flipped and cut the cat at 3 inches in both black and glossy white.
2. I then used glossy accents all over the black cat and put Pink Paislee black glitter over the whole thing.
3. While it was still wet, I cleared back out the eyes to reveal the white and added the orange Hero Arts™ adhesive gem stones.
4. I embossed the background with the Cuttlebug Boo to You Emboss Folder™
5. I adhered the orange layer to the striped one.
6. Next I added the black with white polka dots JillyBeanStalks to the layers.
7. I used my Glue Glider Pro™ to adhere the layers to a white card base.
8. I stamped the journal card from Pink Paislee™ with the Spooky Puns™ sentiment "Scardey Cat".
9. I pop dotted the journal card with mini-popdots.
10. Lastly, I pop dotted the cat with higher foam dots.
11. I was done! :)


EAD Designs has decided to sponsor this giveaway and has provided me with some AWESOME Halloween stickerz. Thank you EAD!!!
