Happy Saturday, Friends!

Just popping in really quick to share another Halloween card with you today.  I really love Halloween in terms of card making.  The images and fun spirit just make me smile.  Dressing my kids up was probably the most fun ever for me, though!!  Good times, good times.  LOL

Boo Ooga Booga

Boo Ooga Booga2So, I decided I wanted to do a spinner card – I love fun moving techniques, don’t you?  The card base is 5” x 5”.  I cut the circle (through the two layers of cardstock and the one layer of DP – all at the same time!) using my Classic Circle Nestabilities and my Cuttlebug.  I stitched the orange panel and designer paper together with my sewing machine.  The clear beading wire is taped on the back of the designer paper panel.  I then stamped the ghost from the Ooga Booga stamp set from My Cute Stamps twice.  I cut them out, ran them through my Xyron Sticker Maker and stuck them together, encasing the beading wire between the two images.  I then punched out four bats using my Martha Stewart Bat Punch, ran them through my Sticker Maker again, and attached them to the bead wire as I did with the ghosts.  I love how they look like they’re really flying!!  The Boo sentiment was from the Happy Halloween clear set from Hero Arts – this set has just about every single sentiment you could ever imagine needing for Halloween projects.  It’s a must have for every collection IMHO.  So fun, huh?!!
STAMPS:  Ooga Booga (My Cute Stamps), Happy Halloween (Hero Arts)
Tuxedo Black (Memento), Fresh Snow (Papertrey Ink)
PAPER:  Orange Zest (Papertrey Ink), Black Licorice (Poptone), Halloween Prints DP (Papertrey Ink)
ACCESSORIES:  Classic Circle
Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Sticker Maker (Xyron), Bat Punch (Martha Stewart Crafts), Clear Bead Wire, Satin Ribbon (Stampin’ Up!), Janome Sew Mini
That’s it for me today.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your Saturday.  Thanks so much for stopping by today – it warms my little heart that you take the time to stop in.
