Thriller Card Swap and Halloween Blog Hop

Say that three times fast! Here's a bunch of hauntingly fun Halloween card ideas, compliments of the talented Close To My Heart consultants in my unit. Also, my friend Tresa found a fun way to create a blog hop (without any major organizing necessary), so of course I had to jump on board.

I wish you could see these all in person, because the details are incredible! The text card at the top was created by Bridget Mahler, and the Scary Halloween card was created by Tanya Stone. (If you know who made the far left card, please let me know! Thanks!)

Check out Tanya's details: stitching, ribbon ruffles, prisma glitter, cuttlebug background, cool folded wings...

The white skull card is mine. Don't you love the stitching that Camy Eisentrager added to her circle card? I love Taralyn's puple background for the skull bat.






Pam Beery added prisma glitter to black combossing powder (a ratio of 1:2 works well) to create this spooky cool card.

This Lagoon skull card is so cool with the Licorice Opaque "eye" and highlights (created by Terri Harden for another swap I was in).









For these two cards, I used a "chalk lifting" technique. I really didn't think that this was going to turn out very nice, but I was amazed when the Versamark image pulled the chalk off the card stock and the black background glowed through. We made this card at my card class last Sunday, and one of my customers added the red Sparkles to the bat skull eyes. How cool is that? We all had to copy her!
Now, feel free to click on any of the thumbnails below to check out other blogs in this Halloween blog hop. Want to join us? Just link up your Halloween idea- any crafty idea can be shared. Happy haunting, I mean, hopping!

Where has the blog hop gone? I was trying to find a site I visited earlier and it's disappeared!!!

Joy said...

Never mind, it came back while I was at lunch. Someone may have been posting a new link while I was looking for it...or it might just be Halloween spookiness!
