Kraft & Black Shoe

2/8/20 Top Rocker at 613 Avenue Create!
2/18/20 Top 3 at Jan’s Digi Stamps Challenges!

Hello friends! I’ve popped in this afternoon to share a fun shoe I created to add to my paper shoe collection HERE! My inspiration came from my friend, Nancy, who has shared a couple shoes she made for a DT she’s currently on. So, of course, I just HAD to have that cut file, lol! All the rest of my paper shoes have been hand-cut from templates, so I felt really privileged to have a cut file for this one!


I used the beautiful Black & Kraft paper collection from Canvas Corp, which is nice and thick and of good quality. I cut the file with my Scan N Cut.


I sprayed some off-white Wild Orchid Crafts paper flowers with Tattered Angels Pewter Color Wash Paint, then another spritz of Tattered Angels Gold Glimmer Mist. Once they were completely dry, I dabbed some gold acrylic paint on the edges of each flower with my finger. I let them dry for a couple hours and added them to the shoe with hot glue.


I also added a narrow strip of Marco’s Metallic Gold cardstock on the heel for a little interest.


And one more look from overhead… I sure love my paper shoes and so proud to add this one to my collection!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
