Ghosts and Goblins Fall Frolic Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Ghosts and Goblins Fall Frolic Blog Hop! Come join the fun, leave comments on each designer's blog and have a chance to win some wonderful prizes! If you have come by way of Julie's great blog you are in the right place. If not you might want to start at the beginning on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog to be eligible for those wonderful prizes! I had so much fun making these cards for the hop. I made a window or tunnel card for my first card. I got to use a fun haunted house die that one of my good friends gave me awhile back. The cute witches are some of our new digital stamps by the artist Michelle Perke. I used Candy the Sweet Halloween Witch digi022 and Fly Away Witch digi123. I used Autumn Medley glitter G1013 on the house windows and decorative edges of the card.




On my second card I just HAD to use the fun Glow in the Dark embossing powder EP392. Just put the card in the light for a bit and then go in a dark place and boy does it glow! Such a fun product to use for kids and big kids alike! The stamps I used are the Dancing Skeleton 1370-285G and Spider 0299-113A.






Thank you for stopping by. Remember to comment on each designer's blog to be eligible for fun prizes! Now hop on over to see Shanna's wonderful work.

April, your first card is very cute. But your second card just cracks me up. I love it. Especially the eyeballs! Great job!!

Debi said...

Nice cards. I'm partial to fancy folds so I'm really loving the first card with the haunted house, glittery windows and the witch on a broom. Although, those eyeballs are definitely cool.

Brenda said...

April, how DO you always come up with such fantastic ideas! LOVE the haunted house card with the witch flying overhead - fabulous colors, wonderful cut outs, and a great feel for halloween time.

E. Marie said...

April, your cards are so great!! Love the 3-D affect of the tunnel card with the spooky house in the background and the witch image flying off. Great use of the glow in the dark EP. Great eyeballs, too.

Katy said...

These cards are awesome! Love the house and flying witch on the first card. And glow in the dark embossing powder? That sounds like fun! :)

Halloween is all about 'spooky' and you have captured that in both cards. What is scarier than a haunted house surrounded by a ghost and witches, fluttering bats, a dancing skeleton, two huge bloodshot eyes, spiders and cobwebs. I just wish I could see the 'Glow in the Dark' embossing powder work. Serenity1944

Karenladd said...

Your cards are fabulous! LOVE the fancy fold on the first card and the second one with those big eyeballs made me laugh and shiver at the same time!

NWFlamingo said...
