A Card with Bite!

Yay, it's Halloween! Unfortunately this year I didn't get to decorate (issues!) but I did get a chance to make this fun Dracula card. All of the cuts are from Happy Hauntings, and I think maybe next year I will make my Halloween Decorations with that card if I have time. 

And I had the perfect sentiment stamp from Stampendous for the inside. 

Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!

Today I have one of my more silly Halloween cards. Usually I like scary, that's why I go to the Haunted Houses and Halloween events most years. Not so much this year because I've been having some issues, but back to my card. 

I used a Martha Stewart corner punch for the cracks in the corners of the card, and the ghost is from Mini Monsters. I used the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo edge punch for the green slim under the Halloween ribbon, which is from American Crafts from my stash a few years ago. I did the Boo Ya on my computer, which is though was a cute sentiment.

I hope you like my cute/spooky card! Happy Crafting.

Creepy Night Card

Yes, another halloween card for you! Sorry about the darkness of this picture, but I didn't realize how it came out and I've already mailed it so I can't take the pic over. 

This is a cute card I just couldn't resist making. The window is from the Christmas solutions cartridge, and I added some rhinestones at the top which are hard to see from the angle of the picture. The Tree is from Happy Hauntings. The spider and web are from Mini Monsters. 

I thought that it came out rather well, and I sure hope the friend I sent it to likes it. 

Happy Crafting.

Smell My Feet!

Today I have a Halloween Card for you. I have this adorable trick or treat paper from Heidi Grace Designs, and I found this stamp from Recollections that I bough on clearance a few years ago, and I realized that they matched so I just had to make a card with them!

 I started with my Martha Stewart Bat corner punch on the black card base. 

And I recycled the bat punch outs to give the card some more flair on the pattern paper.
 I punched the yellow circle out of the yellow layer of the card to save paper and then stamped on my sentiment. I cut a scalloped circle using my Cricut, and added some orange twine. I love the way it came out!

Happy Crafting!

A Haunted Mansion

We are so close to Halloween, one of my favorite holidays. I've always wanted my own little Haunted Mansion! Of course this one is not nearly as cool as the Disney kind, but Hey it will do. I have owned the Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge for a while now, and I just couldn't resist making this house with it.

It needs about 20 different cuts, and yes you need to look at the directions! This haunted house took me 2 hours to make, but I think it's well worth it. It made great decor for my office, but this one takes some dedication to put together. 
This house is supper cute, but let me tell you I made a few mistakes along the way! It's not that easy to figure out. I recommend waiting until you assemble the house to put the chimney together, because I did it backwards the first time. But once I got it all assembled I though it needed a few touches, so I covered the roof with Purple Iced Stickles and added some green smoke to to the chimney. 

A Spooktacular decoration if I do say so myself!

Happy Crafting!

Halloween Party Decor Blog Hop

Welcome to the Halloween Party Decor Blog Hop! Hopefully you will get some great ideas out of this hop.  If you want to start from the beginning please click here. 

Halloween happens to be one of my favorite holiday's and my hubby sure enjoys all of the scary activities that happen this time of year. But I'm just not good a crafting scary so my project today is a set of banners. I keep seeing cute banners all over the craft world, so I decided to make some myself. 

I cut the banner flags using the Tie the Knot cartridge. Not everything I make with that cart has to be romantic!

The little critters on the flags are from Paper Dolls Dress Up, and the letters are from Doodletype cartridges. 

It is the perfect addition to my office decor for our annual Halloween Bash! 
I think that they were very festive, even though they are not too spooky.  

And I have a prize for you! One lucky hopper will win a stamp set from Inkadinkado! Just follow my blog and leave a comment to enter. 

Your next stop is Shelly.
