I love this Halloween Cat from Dog Gone Stamps! The detail is amazing, and it's just right for both scary and cute style Halloween cards. Here I stamped in VersaFine and embossed in Crystal Clear, then colored with reinkers. I added some K&Co cardstock cutouts, some ribbon, and a pipe cleaner. After I glued down the pipe cleaner, I poured some French Lilac Art Glitter all over it to stick to any extra glue. I do this all the time, and it may not be a huge detail, but another cardmaker would notice the extra glue, even if they don't notice the glitter. Besides, I never miss an opportunity to use glitter!!The only thing I have found for adhereing pipe cleaners to cards that works well is hot glue. There are other glues that have the power, but they just stay wet for way too long, and the pipe cleaners lift before the glue dries.
