Have a Ghostly Halloween


Happy Halloween!  It's not just Halloween, it's a Bitten by the Bug 2 Halloween!  My very talented Design Team sister Shelly (from Shelly's Card Blog) selected the perfect challenge cut for Halloween - a GHOST from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge.  And so that we may share the ghoulish fun, this is our monthly blog hop Monday!  I am the first stop on the blog hop and from here you can trick or treat at each of the participating blogs for Blog Candy!


I used several different sized ghosts welded together to create a ghost mesh for my card front.  I welded the four ghosts at the top of the card to a rectangle which is the card back.  I cut a couple of the small ghosts as unwelded individuals so that I could "pop" them on the front of the card.


Using A Child's Year cartridge, I cut three welded trick or treater three times.  I layered the cuts with pop dots and attached them over top of the ghostly mesh.  A rectangle of Halloween orange stamped with stars was glued behind the ghosts.   I finished the card by adding Spooky BOO ribbon to the bottom of the card.



I have wonderful Blog Candy to share - A $20.00 gift voucher from Custom CropsCustom Crops is truly a "go to" on-line merchant for all of your paper crafting needs!  I am especially fond of their selection of Cricut cartridge products; they always have a great selection with great prices.  Today, in honor of Halloween, you can purchase Teresa Collins' Chic and Scary cartridge for $20!!!  Which means if you are my blog candy winner you would only pay shipping for Chic and Scary!!

To register for my blog candy leave a comment below and be follower of my blog.  I will announce the winner on Thursday!

After registering for the Custom Crops gift voucher blog candy you will move on to the next stop on our Halloween blog hop.  You will be visiting the blog of my friend, fellow Michigan State Alumni, design team sister, and a true inspiration - Donna Mundinger of Popsicle Toes!!!  Be prepared - Donna will blow you away!

  2. Susan, this is just fantastic.... I love the ghosties and I really love that you've added the little costumed kidlets prancing across the card. I didn't even know this cut was on ACY. Wow... love it.
