A Dynamic Duo Halloween

This week's challenge at Dynamic Duos is Lucky Limeade and Black with the option of Halloween!!  It's cold, gloomy and rainy today while I am making this card - so Halloween was a MUST!

Bootiful Booty


You HAVE to check out the rest of the cards from the design team.  The cards are not all Halloween and there are some stunning uses of these colors.  Then create your own and link it up - we LOVE seeing your creations.

  • Stamps: Stampin' Up Bootiful Occasions
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Lucky Limeade, black and white
  • Ink: Versafine black
  • Accessories: Stampin' Up Apothecary Accents dies*, Michaels brand Glitter Tape, Stampin' Up Limeade ribbon, Martha Stewart web punch, Papertrey Ink Chartruese button, misc twine
*I had envisioned the use of the die on this card and was sad when I realized the actual die was too narrow for the image.  So I cut a strip of paper to the correct width and then used the Apothecary Accents die to cut the top.  You have to roll it into your machine, with the top first, until you just feel resistance or else the die will start cutting the narrower vertical lines also.

Sooo great!! You should link this up with the Less is More challenge, too, if that's allowed for DT members to do. It's perfect!

This is so stinkin' clever, Kim! Love the way you altered the tag to fit your stamp. Love the bitty rhinestones that brough color to the boot and the paper pieced band is perfect!
