PP461 Tic Tac Toe Halloween

Hi everyone, happy Sunday!  I hope you're having a great weekend so far!  Jaydee is our Paper Players hostess this week and since it's a fifth Sunday, it's a Tic-Tac-Toe!  Lots of great choices in this one, perfect for your fall or Halloween stamping!  So here we go:

For my tic-tac-toe row, I chose the middle row across:  orange, die-cut and Halloween!  I pulled out some of my favorite Halloween sets (I have SO many) and went to work!  These stamps and papers are from Close to My Heart, and I used some retired SU products as well!

I began by stamping the fence in Memento black, using my Stamparatus to line them up!  I stamped some swirly background images, then added my little ghost, shaded with Blends, and a few glimmer bats!  

Next, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the cat in Memento Black, then cleaned my stamp and inked it up again with Versamark ink, then heat embossed it with black embossing powder to get a really dark image!  I love how it really stands out on top of the fence!  I added a glimmery spider web, and in hindsight, I should have added a little black spider!

But the most fun part of this card is that it is kind of interactive...when you open it up, this pops up!  My hostess  yesterday wanted to make a card that had some action, so this is the card I designed, only ours used SU products (I'll share that one later).  Again, these sentiments are all from CTMH, the "BOO!" diecut is from a past SU die, cut in Pumpkin Pie glimmer paper:

Here's a side view of the pop-up's really easy to do, if anyone needs directions, I'll try to make up a little tutorial  Here's another view:

 I hope you'll play along with us at the don't have to make a Halloween card, as you can see by the creations the design team came up with...there is a wide variety of styles!  Be sure to stop by the Paper Players blog to see them and share yours with us as well!  Thanks for popping in today!

Eden, all decked out in her Eagles' jersey, looks like she is saying "Don't bother me!" 

 Enjoy your day and be blessed!

LeAnne, I love your little scene - from your shiny bat, to the glittery spider web, to that black cat sitting on the fence. I also love that it's a pop-up card inside. Fabulous card and thanks for rocking my TicTacToe challenge this week
