Cut it Up Spooky Halloween challenge

Time for some spooky fun at Cut it Up Challenge Blog!  We were asked to make a Halloween project with a little spookiness to it.  FUN!

I needed several Halloween cards.  I kind of send them out like Christmas cards, because they’re such fun to make!!  I have so many ideas and cute files and images, that I can’t stop at just one.  My favorite size to make is 3 – 3.5 inch little square cards, so I made three with envelopes.  Our sponsor this week is  Trendy Twine.  They gave us some awesome twine to work with.  It’s called Orange Licorice, and I used it in three different ways.  I love the bold color!


For the card on the left, I hand-stitched the outline of the cauldron.  First, I used my piercing tool to make little holes; then I threaded a large-eyed needle and just sewed through.





I used the same threaded needle to make the horizontal line of the tie around this little Grim Reaper’s neck.  Then I just tied a little bolo tie with a scrap.






The twine feature on the pumpkin card is easy to do.  You just wrap the twine around three to five times, then take a scrap of twine and tie it around the middle, cinching it up nice and tight.  You cover it with a decorative element.

All the cuts are from the Mini-Monsters Cricut cartridge.  The stamps are from Pink By Design, A Haunting We Will Go.

Link up your Halloween projects at Cut it Up Challenge Blog and you may be the lucky person to win this awesome prize from Trendy Twine:
