So let's get to the inspiration for today's new Card Making & Paper Craft Scrapbook challenge...

Samantha - It is Digi Choosday time again, and the DT team was asked to make projects featuring Halloween. I was excited for project because I am pretty sure Halloween is my all-time favorite cardmaking season. Yes… I love Halloween cards even more than Christmas cards, but it is close. For my project, I chose the haunting Oddella with bag and I paired her with images from the Poppy Flower bundle. I Copic colored both Oddella and the poppy flowers in shades of purple and dusty violet and fussy cut each image. For the poppies, I colored a few select petals from duplicate poppy images that I then fussy cut and adhered to my main image with foam tape to create depth and dimension. I placed everything onto a dark ink-blended background and added a border using paper from the Halloween/Autumn Paper Heaven 1 digital paper bundle and a sentiment from the Halloween Trick or Treat printable Sentiments bundle. I hope you find this card as spooky fun as I do.

Jennifer @Pueen Queen - Hello crafty friend, For today's project, I've created a bright colorful Halloween card using some great digital downloads from Polkadoodles. For the background, I began by heat embossing a spiderweb onto smooth white cardstock. Then, I chose some bold distress inks to ink blend a background that pops. I started by blending a touch of carved pumpkin into crackling campfire. Then some fired brick, villainous potion and finally chipped sapphire for a dramatic gradient. For the main image, I just had to use this adorable mummy trick-or-treater called "mummy boo halloween". I paired him with a cute pumpkin candy pail and 'BOO' banner from the new digital printable halloween release "hocus pocus". I was able to print the images I chose in any size I wanted. Which is such an awesome aspect of printable images! I colored all 3 elements with alcohol markers and added a few finishing touches with a white gel pen and a glaze gel pen to add some shiny details.
I cut down my background panel to 3½" by 4¾" to have a chunky black boarder. I arranged my images so they were laying beyond the inked panel, onto the black boarder, so they really draw your attention. The digital printable stamps from Polkadoodles are so fun an versatile to work with. Having the ability to resize your images is my favorite part of the process. The possibilities are endless! I hope you like this spooky cute card I created today. Have a creative day!...Mummy boo imageHocus pocus printablesDistress ink

Wendy - Hi everyone! I have another adorable box card for you today. I used a couple of adorable images from the Christmas Bear bundle as well as one of the amazing backgrounds that come with it. I combined the Decorating the Tree and Sweater images with one of the wintery backgrounds for a stunning scene. I colored everything with Copic markers. I love coloring these adorable bears and making scenes for them. Thank you for looking!

Naomi - Hi Everyone! That time of year is coming, and I, for one, can't wait for the Holiday Season!! This week's card features Carol Singing - Elvis Wesley Moose! For the sentiment, I used Theo Penguin -Greetings/Sentiments Bundle, greetings #33. I coloured him using my alcohol markers. I also added some sparkles and framed the card on red glitter cardstock to give him a little extra shine. Thanks so much for reading. I can't wait to see what everyone makes this week!

  • Tree: GY4 GY3 G2

Jane – There’s some spooky goings-on on my card today. I have used the fabulous new HALLOWEEN KITS to create a little midnight scene. The cat is from HOCUS POCUS WITCHES, the ‘dangling’ ghostie is from GHASTLY GHOST and the bat & moon are from HALLOWEEN TREAT. The gorgeous digital paper in the background can be found in TRICK OR TREAT BUNDLE 1.

Kim Stewart - Halloween has to be one of the funnest holidays; especially now I have grandchildren. I can't wait to go out trick or treating with them this year. For our Halloween Themed Design Team Project this week I created a Pop up card with a Belly Band. The belly band has one of the coloured digis attached to it from the Hocus Pocus digital set Inside i used bats and pumpkins and little kitties plus another cutie witch for the pop up part of my card. I put the bats on acetate strips so they look like they're flying. Everything was coloured with my Copic markers. My paper choices come from Wanda Paper digital paper pack 3, Gnome Trick or Treat Halloween digital paper packs 2 & Gnome Trick or Treat Halloween coordinates digital paper pack . My sentiments come from the Ghastly Ghosts download bundle You can find me at
