Trick Or Treat – Anything But A Card!

This weeks challenge on the Catch The Bug blog is to create a project for Halloween.  No cards this week ladies!  I found a tutorial for making vintage Halloween projects, and I adapted it to fit my needs. 

Bugaboo Wands

I made these two wands using the Bugaboo images “Halloween Brat – Pumpkin, and Goofy Ghost – Moon and Star.

Hween Brat - Pumpkin

This wand uses the Halloween Brat image, which I colored with Copics, and then used Black and Orange stickles for the sparkle.  The designer paper is by Graphic 45.  The border punch is by Martha Stewart.  The little broom and black cat are dies I picked up at the dollar store.

Goofy Ghost Moon and Star

This is the Goofy Ghost image, which I just used C1 Copic to shade the ghost, then a bit of stickles for the heart.  The banner I made myself, and the letters were cut with the my Cricut.  The weird little spider is also a die cut from the dollar store.  The DP is also by Graphic 45.

I hope you’ll join our challenge this week, I look forward to seeing all the scary Halloween projects.  Have fun and good luck!
