A Walk in the Moonlight - Trick or Treat!

Thank you for joining us on our “Take a Walk in the Moonlight” Blog Hop. We have a fabulous path for you to follow as you take your walk in the moonlight with us as we feature Close to My Heart’s Moonlight paper pack.

If you just happened to come to this blog, you should begin your walk at the beginning at Lucy's blog -

My project is a mini trick-or-treat pale all dressed up in Moonlight papers. For this project I had a small clear paint pale from the local craft store (mine is about 3" high). I cut the paper the correct size and length in a rectangle to fit inside the pale, small enough that it rested along the pale wall. I then used two borders cut from the paper packs to get the polka dots and the banner with the Halloweenie terms along the top border.

Then I got busy with the Cricut cartridges - both the Art Philosophy & Artiste! You can purchase either of these cartridges from Close to My Heart for $99 and it comes with 3 D sized coordinating stamp sets as well as coordinating cardboard shapes. Cuts I made with the Cricut include:

Artiste -
Spider pg 77 cut at 1-1/4" <accent 4> <shift> and the bat on pg 76 cut at 3/4" <card> <no shift>
Art Philosophy -
pg 68 <font> <no shift> 3-1/2",
<font> <shift> 3-1/2",
and <font> <shift> 3"
pg 34 shift <leaf2> 2-1/2", and two times 1-1/2"
layer shift 2-1/2" and two times 1-1/2"

Smokey Plum Exclusive Inks
and OF COURSE, the CANDY CORN! :O) My favorite part of the whole project!! Here are a few detail shots for you to check out the whole project... 

I used my dauber with some Smokey Plum Exclusive Inks to top it all off and make it a little spooky and dark!  The orange flowers and green leaves really took a 'fall' look instead of the bright look that they started out with. Then my favorite touch - I put the Bittys in for the eyes!  So cute and makes the back of your head sing the theme song from the Twilight Zone!!

I hope you enjoy, I know I will.... YUM, my favorite Halloween treat!!  This by far is my husband's favorite project I've produced...  Do you think it's because it's full of CANDY CORN?  LOL
