Cardz TV Challenge # 15 BLING!!!!

This is my entry for Cardz TV Challenge.

The challenge: Bling it Up!

I first chose the  sparkly pink flowers from some Recollections flowers I had from Michaels. The center gems come from Heidi Grace. I wanted the paper to match the pink flowers, but I couldn't find anything (blingy) enough. I went to my two DCWV Glitter Stacks and found some really glittery black and gray papers. They don't really match the flowers, but I think they provide an interesting contrast. The silver glitter cardstock is from Jo Ann's and is sold in single sheets. I cut the diamond shapes out of one of the pieces of the DCWV glitter paper. The double rhinestone strip is from Recollections.

Card base is BAZZILL CARD SHOPPE "Licorice" 5.50"x 8". I had to make this a little larger than usual in order to fit on all the flowers and layers.
Striped layer is 5 1/4" x 7 3/4".
Black layer is 4 7/16" x 7 7/16".
Silver glitter cardstock is 3 7/8 x  7 3/16".
The diamond layer was cut out from a sheet of patterned paper.

Cricut Cardz Challenge # 116 -

This is my entry in the current Cricut Cardz Challenge.
Inside of card

I don't usually use the card feature on cartridges, so this was a challenge to me.
I went directly to the Cricut "Wild Card" cartridge because I knew it would contain
lots of card images. This card had to have a Holloween theme, while I was looking at all the different shapes, I came across this one and it kind of reminded me of a crescent moon.  We all know that witches and moons go together. And of course, you can't have a bright yellow moon without a few bats flying around.


Base - Cricut Wild Card "Circle" pg. 48  BAZZILL CARD SHOPPE "Whirlypop" cut  at  5". I then embossed the front of the base with the Sizzix "Wild Dashes" texture plate.
Moon- I also cut from pg 48, using the Liner layer at 5" and used only the center for the moon. I used Bazzill Smoothies "Banana Bliss" cardstock.
Star paper surrounding the moon- I cut from pg 48, using the Liner layer at 5" and used only the outside of the liner.
Bats- Cut from Recollections black cardstock. Wild Cards cartridge pg 68, Icon layer. I cut two of each-  1",  and 1 1/4"  bats for the inside. I cut one of each- 2" and 2 1/4" bats for the cover of the card. I colored the bats with Sakura "Glaze" gel pen in black to give it a glossy finish. I probably could have use Glossy Accents and might, if I do this again.
Witch- I used Autumn Celebrations cartridge "Witch" pg. 26. Cut at 3 1/4". The only change I made was to use a greenish cardstock for the face of the witch.
The sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps, " Spooky Sayings". I curled the stamp onto the stamp block to shape it to fit the moon. Worked great.

I have decided to play along with some challenges and this looks like a fun one to enter. I have lots of punches so I thought I would give this one a try.
I am not very computer savvy, but here is the link to Paper Playtime's site.

I used Martha Stewart large spider punch and the large spider web border punch, but you can substitute the punch around the page, Spider Web punch. The sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps stamp set "Spooky Sayings".

I used BAZZILL CARD SHOPPE "Licorice" for the 5"x7" card base.
next-Green Paper with a slight swirly texture print 4 7/8" x 6 7/8".
next-Striped print paper 4 3/4" x 6 3/4".
next-Recollections black cardstock  4 1/4" x 6 1/4".
next-Orange print paper 4 1/8" x 6 1/8".
next-Green Paper with a slight swirly texture print 4" x 6".

The spider web is in Bazzill Smoothies "Orange Slice" with Recollections black cardstock as a blackout. The spiders are also Recollections black cardstock coated with Versa Mark watermark stamp pad and then coated with Stampendous Detail Black "Opaque" embossing powder. The web is made from 10 lb. hemp cord available in the jewelry crafting department. The eyes are from Recollections (Michaels brand) adhesive back rhinestones. The sentiment is also stamped with the Versa Mark and embossed with the "Opaque" powder.
