Here's another example of the same sponge and masking technique that appeared in my previous post HERE as seen on Michelle Zindorf's blog. I love this new Frightening Feline SU stamp and the bats are once again thanks to a Martha Stewart punch. Adding mini adhesive gems for the bats' eyes really makes these little guys pop! (The saying is from SU's Teeny Tiny Sayings.) View another wonderful Michelle Zindorf masking and sponging tutorial by clicking on her card below:

My Cricut came to the rescue to create this card. I did a Google search for free Halloween SVG and SCAL files and found one for a haunted house HERE! The bat is a Martha Stewart punch and the moon/sky sponge technique was inspired by the very talented and creative Michelle Zindorf shown HERE. Thank you, Michelle!

Use Wide Ribbons and an Embossing Folder Twice!


This card is larger than an embossing folder, but looks like it was run through once - even though a standard embossing folder normally would not cover the entire front of this 5" square card. Here's the trick to give the illusion: Using a Cuttlebug, first run the embossing folder through at the top of the card along the folded edge...then a second time with the folder placed at the bottom of the card edge. (You could also cut to size two different halves to adhere to the front of a card then add a ribbon to hide the seam.) Using a sponge, I added green to highlight the raised image, then added a wide ribbon then a thinner ribbon to cover where the embossing folders met slightly below the middle of the card. The paper flower is from Paper Source.
