By The Cute & Girly GDT October - SPOOKY!!

I was picked to be a guest member of the Design Team for the By The Cute & Girly Challenge  in October, and Lisa has chosen a "Spooky" theme, in the lead up to Halloween!
Now, this might be a blanket statement, but Halloween isn't a big thing in England, unlike the USA, so I've never actually made a card for it before (and therefore didn't really have any supplies). It's a real shame, as there are so many brilliant stamps, papers and embellishments out there!

So, I made three creations with what I could find (mainly freebies!!), and hopefully it might help to inspire those who also haven't ventured into spooky crafting before!

Project One

Technique: Papermania tunnel card template using blue cardstock & acetate
Image: Halloween freebie from KLM Digi Stamps coloured with Promarkers
Stickers: Halloween fun stickers from Craft Planet

Challenges I'm entering:
Alice In Wonderland #32 - Window/Hole

Project Two
I thought I'd try something a bit different, in case we get any little trick or treat-ers visiting on Halloween! This is just a metal tin decorated with paper and ribbon!

Technique: Altered tin
Paper: Free download from Stamping All Day

Challenges I'm entering:
Crafty Ann's Challenge #24 - Anything but a card

Project Three

This one was a lot of fun to make - tricky, but definitely fun!


Technique: T-Slider card using template from Kim Score at Splitcoast Stampers
Image: James from Just Inklined Digital Stamps coloured with Promarkers
Stickers: Halloween fun stickers from Craft Planet

Challenges I'm entering:
Paper Sundaes #37 - Things with Wings (bats)

Well, I hope you've enjoyed seeing what everyone has created for the October Challenge, and that you'll all have a go too!
