RCC26- Trick? Treat?

Hey everyone, it is time for another Ribbon Carousel Crew challenge!

This week's challenge is being hosted by Ashley, and it's a Halloween challenge. YAAAAY! I love Halloween, it's possibly my favorite holiday, and not just because it's semi-close to my birthday!

To play along, your creation can be anything from cards, quilts, sewn items, paper crafts, to paintings! *** Just be sure to have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace, thread (basically anything that comes on a spool). ***

After you have your entry made, be sure to come back to the Ribbon Carousel Blog, and add your card to the linky thingy!!

For my card tonight, I started by stamping my images from the Tiny Town set from My Favorite Things on X-Press It Blending card. I then cut them all to 1x1, and layered them with Black Licorice card stock. My sketch is this week's Sweet Sunday fun! I used the Small Scalloped Border Die-namics, along with some Echo Park Happy Halloween paper. My brads are from Michael's. The ribbon I used is Black Net, and I also used some Black Licorice, and Green Apple Twine, all from the Ribbon Carousel.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies, and a few more sentiments and images from this set.

Here is the Die-namics I used:

Well, that is it for me for now! Be sure to head on back to the Ribbon Carousel Blog to check out my other crew mates entries for this challenge!! Thanks and have a great day!!

For my card tonight, I started by stamping one of the trees from Boos and Hisses on some Echo Park Happy Halloween paper. I then stamped my mummy, from Hauntingly Delightful, on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored it with my Copics and cut it back out. I then cut some of the green paper from the Echo Park pack, and then cut the top of it to make it look like grass. I then layered it with Sweet Tooth, Orange Fizz, Sour Apple, and Black Licorice. My black seam binding is from the Ribbon Carousel, and my brads are from Michael's. I used Jen's Sketch For You To Try, as well. I did add the spider web at the top using the There She Goes Spider Web Die.

Well, that is it for me for now!! Be sure to check out the There She Goes blog for more samples from this challenge.
