Quirky Crafts Challenge 14

This weeks Quirky Crafts challenge is Halloween or Autumn if you don't celebrate Halloween. I went a bit over board and made quite a few for this one as I love Halloween and my Dad bought me the cat Halloween stamp for Christmas last year and I've been desperate to use it ever since.

I used a cuttlebug embossing folder to make the Halloween circle background which doesn't show up very well in this photo but you can see it better in some of the others.

On this card I used embossing borders on the edges then I used the "Boo to You" embossing folder on some Core'dinations card, cut out the spider circle using a small nestabilities circle then used some sandpaper to take off some of the black to let the purple of the core come through and show up the embossing better.

This little mouse is another Penny Black but my mum gave me this one recently. I think it's so cute.

The "Boo" for this one I originally wanted to do bigger on my Cricut but unfortunately it has decided to stop working altogether now. It did take about 5 hours to warm up but it did come on eventually however it was on for a whole day and although the green light was on under the power button it never sprang into action. My Cricut has officially given up on me. Thank heaven's for my 'Bug it came to the rescue for me and did a little "Boo" instead. You've gotta love that Bug!

If you'd like to join in with this fortnights Quirky Crafts Challenge you can find more details here.
