Halloween Card for Swap!!!

Hi All!!!

Well after a long hiatus I am back to to blogging.  I have stayed busy making cards, but life as usual got in the way!! We took some wonderful vacations, 2 weeks in Disney was my dream!!  I am also on the tail end of finishing my BS degree in October and of course there has been work!  Hey I love my job and it certainly allows me to have so much fun with my stamping hobby!   Well I hope you all have been well and had a great summer and had lots of fun adventures with your family!!  Well here is the card I have for you today!!  It was a card I designed and made for a swap that I was invited to be in with a group of other really talented demonstrators!  The cards all had to be holiday themed.
Here are the details:
Stamp Sets: Toxic Treats, Wicked Cool
Paper: Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Jet Black StazOn, Tangerine Tango
                                   Accessories: Spider Web Textured Embossing folder, 1/2" Stripped Satin Ribbon, Labels Collection Framelits, Decorative Label Punch (double punched), Basic Rhinestones, Frost White Shimmer Paint (mixed with rubbing alcohol and placed in a spray bottle).
Well I hope you like the card!  It was super fun to make and Looks a little spooky!!  The frost white shimmer paint sprayed on the black really pops and looks great and it is so easy to make!!  Just take a small travel size spray bottle fill it with some rubbing alcohol (mine was 70%) and then add some shimmer paint.  There is no real formula just add the shimmer paint until you get it to your licking.  Then spray your cardstock and let dry, though it dries really fast!!  Also cover the area you are working in or use newspaper or everything will be shimmer.  Trust me I know this from experience.  :)
Have a wonderful day and I plan to be back soon with more cards!!
