Waltzingmouse October Pajama Party

If you are looking for my Creations by AR post - please scroll down or click here.

It's the 14th of the month and time for another Waltzingmouse Pajama Party!  whoo hoo!!
 Claire posts the challenges for the party on her blog the 1st of each month - so you have plenty of time to create for the challenges and get them linked up on the 14th!  Here are the challenges for tonights' Pajama Party.

1. Texturize it -   use something OTHER THAN embossing folders to create texture

 I used embossing paste and a Stripes stencil to create texture on the background panel of this Halloween card.  I used stamps from Peek a Boo Sentiments and Boo & Friends (star).  The photo is of my grandnephew Landon peeking through the 'face' of a wooden witch at a local farm.  I thought the embossing paste stripes background echoed the witches hair and broomstick bristles quite nicely!
Here's a close up where you can hopefully see the texture of the black embossing paste better.
 2. Snow is falling - Make a project featuring snow

 I used Frosty in the Pines and Alpine Christmas for my Snow is Falling card.  I added a dot of Crystal Ice Stickles to the center of each of the largest snowflake stampings for a little sparkle.

3. Old Pajamas -  Make a project using any of your older Waltzingmouse Christmas sets

I used stamps from last year's release - Yonder Star - for my Old Pajamas card.  I used the Picot Panel Die for my sentiment panel cutting it in both patterned paper and in green card stock.  I put the green border piece with the patterned paper center.  I stamped the stars on the background panel and added brown sequins.
 Here's what I stamped on the inside from the same set.

4. Bedtime Story Sketch - I didn't get a card made for the sketch this month -  but it's a lovely one!
