Red Carpet Card - Day 18

My daughter has a birthday party at Sweet-n-Sassy (if you don't have one locally, they are a great place for young girls and tweens to get their hair cut, have a birthday party, pedicure/manicure).  The theme of the party is Red Carpet.  I had to make this card quickly, as I forgot all about it with all the Halloween fun!  Sorry for the shadow, I took this picture in my car on the way to the party.

Paper: Red, black and gold glitter (scapbook supplies from years ago); Stampin Up - Sahara sand for body and  close to cocoa for hair
Stickles: gold for rings, red for rings,
Marker: Stampin Up - Real red for nail polish
Stamps: Princess Faces by Peachy Keen Stamps
Ink: Stampin Up - Basic Brown

Cricut Cartridge: Paper Doll Dress Up.  I set the height for 5.50 for all cuts.
Body (3.94 x 5.50) - I duplicated the body, flipped it, and welded it together at the top of the head. (used gypsy)
Dress: (3.88 x 5.50) This is the dress on the top row 5th button. Same button with Shift key for boa (2.78 x 5.50)
Hair - I cut the long part off so it looks like her hair is swept up. I also cut crown and shoes.

Halloween Centerpiece - Day 16

Wow, I am half way done with the 30 Day Challenge (even though I think was suppose to finish up the end of September).  I wish I had more time to work  on my crafts - someday when I win the lotto, that is just what I will do.  If I could only remember to buy that lotto ticket!

This is a centerpiece that I made for my dinning room table.  The base is from Southern Living.  It is the base of the cake holder, turn upside down.  I filled it with a collection of orange and black glas discs, white glass ghosts and black glass bats from Pier 1.  Next i used lollipop sticks from Michaels and used my Cricut to cut out Halloween items.  I cut them at 3.5 inches (height).  I did use my gypsy becasue I needed to duplicated the image and flipped it, so I could glue them "back to back."  This whole project took approximately 30 minutes.
