Moxie Fab All That Glitters is Gold & Simon Says...We're Going Dotty
All That Glitters is Gold Challenge at Moxie Fab World and Simon Says...We're Going Dotty Challenge at the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Blog. Ever since I saw this cake pop inspiration photo on Cath's blog (on Sept. 11th), I knew I wanted to use it to make a card.
The only problem is that I couldn't figure out a way to pour glitter on the card and have it cascade down without it looking like Halloween ooze. Not only that, but I knew I wanted a big bold sentiment at the bottom of my card, and I just didn't have any stamps that I felt worked the way I wanted, so I set the idea aside. Fast forward to last week. I won a gift certificate to CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and as I was browsing their products, I saw the big bold images in their Shenanigans set, and immediately I remembered my idea. I didn't place my order until late Friday night, so I knew I would never get my new stamps in time for the Moxie Fab deadline, but I thought maybe sometime I'd get around to making the card I had envisioned. Then much to my surprise my stamps showed up this afternoon (seriously the fasted delivery of anything I have ever ordered...I'm so impressed). We had a fun but full evening of apple and pear picking planned, but I knew I had to try to make a card before the night was over. So after my son went to bed I got to work. I started with trying to figure out a solution to my Halloween ooze problem. As I was pondering, I remembered two things from Simon Says...their dot challenge and their new falling snow stencil (which I do not own...yet).
