Welcome to Die Cuttin’ Divas’ Halloween Challenge! I was so excited when my Sizzix flip dies came in the mail! I’ve been having some fun with them, and I’m happy they arrived in time to make some Halloween cards with them.
One thing I’ve learned is that, yes, these dies are really fun to play with, but I will be saving them for when I just want ONE of a certain card. I normally make several of the same kind of card so I can send them to my four pen pals, or keep them on hand for future birthdays, etc. That’s simple to do using my Gypsy or Silhouette. I just fill the mat. But it’s a pain in the neck and time consuming to have to send the die through the machine for every single card.
Anyway, back to my cards:
Most of the paper is from my stash, I think. The paper on the Frankenstein card may be from an old Martha Stewart paper pad. The twine is Trendy Twine, of course (my favorite) in Lime Licorice. The cool Frankenstein head was saved on my computer years ago with no identifying information on it.
The cute little ghost on the pumpkin stamp is an Itty Bitty from Unity Stamp Company called Be Afraid. “Monster Mash,” “Boo!,” and “Eek!” are from Pink by Design – A Haunting We Will Go. I popped them up on dimensionals.
You have one week to link your Halloween creations! We can’t wait to see them. Here are the details about this week’s Die Cuttin’ Divas’ challenge: It begins on October 28th and ends November 3rd. The sponsor is Cricut Vinyl Supplies who are donating $10-$20 Store credit. Very cool!!
