A Halloween Card!

Challenge:   Halloween
October 1 - 7th, 2013

Hello Crafters!  
I am here with my Design Team post for the Cuttin' and Stampin' Challenge Blog where the "challenge" for this week is Halloween!
I had the wonderful opportunity to work with the adorable stamp set from Paper Smooches called Halloweenies.  I love the images as well as the sentiments on this cute set!   I was also lucky enough to get to use the Paper Smooches "Wise Dies" set also called "Halloweenies" that tie right in with the stamp set!
As part of the Design Team, I was also given some wonderful Bazzil Paper from the Arsenic and Lace collection!  Tammy has some wonderful specials if you head over to the Shop at the Cuttin' and Stampin' Blog.

Let's take a look at my first project for today.

How cute is that little witch?  I stamped her with black ink and used the perfect and easy to use "wise die" that fit the witch just perfectly!  I then colored her in with simple colored pencils.
The Card Shape itself is called a "fake gate card" and I learned how to make it from Joy at Obsessed with Scrapbooking. She has all kinds of wonderful tips and hints on her blog. 
I used that adorable Bazzill paper for the base and the trim of the card.
Here is how the card opens and you can see the sentiments I used from this stamp set.
Here is the card completely opened up.  
These three sentiments were all separate and I stacked them on the acrylic stamping block and stamped them all at once.
Aren't the bats cute?

I wanted to decorate the inside as you unfold the card so I added another cute pumpkin from the stamp set!
Don't you just love the patterned paper from Bazzill? I chose the color pencils I used to tie in with the pattern paper.
Not only did I pop the pattern paper up with foam squares, I also mounted the witch on an
Action Wobble so she wiggles!
You can see a bit of the blur in this photo...that is the great action of the Wobble working!
One final look at my card!
I was so happy with the paper I received I decided to throw together another fast and very simple Halloween card. 
I simply layered some of the wonderful Bazzill paper and the sentiment card on the card!
Used foam squares to pop up the layer with the saying.
Couldn't be easier!
I am so happy you stopped by to visit and I hope you are inspired to make some Halloween projects. We would love you to link up your project at our Challenge Blog!
