Got It? Haunt It--If the Shoe Fits!

This is my last post in the Stampendous Theme Week, "Got it? Haunt It".  This card really surprised me, because I was having a hard time deciding what to do with this stamp.  Once I chose a more "glam" theme, I just kept thinking, "What would Glinda wear?"

Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Chameleon™ Markers (Purple Grape, Spring Green, Black)
Shrink Plastic
Hole Punch
French Curve or Oval Punch
Heat Embossing Tool
Long Handled Tweezers
Clear & Orange Rhinestones
Scotch® 1/2" Adhesive Tape by 3M®
5" Machine and Adhesive by Xyron®
Ribbon by May Arts
Paper Trimmer
Sharp Scissors
  1. Cut the base of the card 3 3/4" by 11" and fold on the top.
  2. Cut purple card stock to 3 3/4" by 5 1/2" and adhere to the base.
  3. Stamp both green and orange card stock with the Damask Bats in VersaMark Ink.
  4. Pour clear embossing powder over the stamped images and shake off the excess.
  5. Use the Heat Tool to emboss the powder.
  6. Stamp the Shoe Fits Image with Memento Ink on the Mixed Media Paper.
  7. Color the Shoe Fits image with Chameleon Markers in Spring Green and Purple Grape.
  8. Sand the shrink plastic.
  9. Place the Spider Stencil on the plastic and lightly trace the images with a pen.
  10. Color the spider with a Black Chameleon Pen.
  11. Use the hole punch to create a hole between the upper legs.
  12. Use sharp scissors to cut around the spider.  Cut around the legs instead of between them.  Also, leave plenty of plastic above the hole.
  13. Use the Heat Tool to shrink the spider.  You can hold it in place with the long handled tweezers.
  14. Use the French Curve to draw an oval around the letters in the Shoe Fits Image and then cut it out.  Alternatively, you could use a punch or die.
  15. Adhere the words to a piece of black card stock and cut, leaving a little border of black around the oval.
  16. Cut around the shoe.
  17. Trim the green bats card stock, black card stock and orange card stock.
  18. Adhere the orange card stock to the black and that to the green, lining up the top edges.
  19. Mount the words to the orange bats.
  20. Run the shoe through the Xyron machine and adhere to the orange bats.
  21. Place clear rhinestones on the shoe.
  22. Place the orange rhinestone on the spider body.
  23. Wrap the ribbons and beads around the bottom of the green bats, creating a nice bow.
  24. Attach the spider as a charm to the bow using twine, and creating an additional bow.
  25. Mount the project to the background.
