Creative Cuts and More Fall & Halloween Blog Hop!!!

Hi blog hoppers! Wasn't Melinda's project full of inspiration? (If you didn't arrive here from Melinda's blog, you don't want to miss what our whole DT has in store for you! The CC&M Blog Hop starts at diecutdiva If you get lost along the way, a complete list will be posted at the Die Cut Diva blog. There will be a 15% coupon code for anyone who visits the Die Cut Diva blog.!
My Autumn card uses Pumpkin #04 Large. I had it cut from my favorite Bazzil Bling. The flowers were also cut from Bling, but were not the right color for this card. All I had to do was smoosh them into my VersaMark pad and emboss them in Classy Copper-super simple!!




Here I used the Dress Box and the Tuxedo Box to make some vampire decorations. I didn't stage them very well, but I think they will be really awesome in a nicely decorated house! The glitter has so much sparkle and shine, they are really shimmery! I used DoodleBug Beetle Black Sugar Coating, some red glitter, Black Diamond and Christmas Red Stickles. The dress started off white, because I am not a very good planner. I just ran my Black Soot pad all over it and called it good-no problem!! I never worry about whether my die cuts are the exact right color or not. I just make them work.

Now it's time for you to go check out the fabulous Kayla's creations! Enjoy!!
