PPA60 - Halloween Challenge

I've been meaning to join a card challenge, but always thought that I'm for sure not comparable to the other submissions. But oh well, I don't think that matters anymore. Craft isn't about rights or wrongs, so I'm joining my first challenge today!

I'm doing the Pals Paper Art Challenge and this week's theme is Halloween!

So here it goes..Inspired by my fave Halloween character, Wicked's witch. Here's the Witch's Shoe.

You can't really tell from the picture, but I used Pumpkin Pie Craft ink to sponge the side of the shoe.

Revealing a day late

As promised a couple of days ago that I will release the reveal of the project a day later. 

Turned out to be 2 days later. So sorry to keep you all anxiously looking at my blog to find out what it is. Here it is! It's not a stocking, but instead it's a stiletto boot! I used the deck the halls designer fabric and embellished it with various Stampin' Up! buttons and vintage brads.  
I wanted to keep the vintage look and didn't want to make yet another stocking, so I drew up a boot and turned it to something that I can WOW Santa with this year! I sure hope he appreciates craft!

So what do you think?

Blowout Sale/Open House Hit!

Thanks to everyone who came out even in the rain to my retired item blowout sale and open house yesterday!!
You guys were quick!! My stash of products were cleared off my tables within the first 30 minutes!! I applaud you bargain hunters! I'm sure you all found some good treasures and are able to put my beloved stamp sets and big shot dies into good use.
There were about 20+ who came out. I was so filled with excitement about meeting everyone of you that I didn't realize that I was overly tired until I closed the door for the last guest. Right away I got a migraine headache. :(

SOO I haven't picked out the door prize winners yet. Please stay tuned for that!

In the meantime, for those who couldn't come out for the event, here's some of the projects that were on display.
 I demonstrated the new Big Shot Candy Wrapper die. Isn't this cute? Perfect for little Halloween treats! Great for party favors too!

This next one was a big crowd pleaser at the event. Guess what it is! I'll reveal it in my next blog entry.

So with all the Christmas projects that I've been making and blogging about, I almost forgot Halloween! 

I made this quick punch art card with my circle and oval punch. To make the howling ghosts, I used the, believe it or not, the Two-Step Owl punch! Isn't this cute?

I cased this project from Michelle Scileppi. I found her project thru Stampin' Connection which only demonstrators have access to.
