Time for Another Creative Cutting Challenge....

Hey Everyone......I hope you're all doing WONDERFUL today!!!!'s that time again....time for another Creative Cutting Challenge with the Design Team I'm on.......

Creative Cutting Challenge
This this challenge it's about Halloween...but NOT a what would be FUN for Halloween....Well.....I came up with a "Hangie"....You know...something you can hang on a hook just to bring a smile to your face when you walk's what I came up with!!!
This is the design on the computer screen....with a combination of Creative Pointe files and My Files.....
This was such a FUN project to do and worked up fairly quickly once I got my idea in my head.....
On the Tombstone I used some Vintage Glitter.....(isn't it COOL)

Like my spider???...LOL  The top part of it is some Velvet Paper from Tyler over at All That Jazz Supplies and the body of the spider is some Velvet Paper from The Paper was white and I used a Dick Blick black marker and colored it black...worked perfectly....

So to create this piece I used some of the files in the Creative Pointe:
Halloween Set Two - Click Image to Close
You can read more about this set HERE
And I also used a couple of my cut  files......

PDC Spooky Spider 9-5-2010
PDC Spider Web 9-5-2010
I started off with picking a few of the files from the Creative Point set.......then went from there...pulling in one of my spider web files and then my scary spider.......and then it all fell together....I cut all the pieces with my Silver Bullet Professional Cutter......and used some awesome papers......everything that has glitter on them I decided to cut with just regular black cardstock and put a layer of double sided adhesive on it which I get from Tyler at All That Jazz Supplies.....this is some awesome stuff!!!!  Cut the shapes out...then removed the top layer of the adhesive and coated with PERFECTLY!!!! 
You'll notice on the tombstone piece I used Vintage Glitter...WOWZERS isn't that the affect....I was trying for an old stony looking headstone.......I kinda think it looks like it......for orange pieces.......(not the background piece) I used some Velvet paper from The Paper Temptress was white and I colored them orange with a Dick Blick Alcohol Marker and it worked just as I had envisioned.....the pumpkin piece I ran through my embossing machine using a spider web folder.....really makes it look like a pumpkin texture don't you think!! ;)  all of the pieces I used some Walnut Stain Distressed Ink to give them more of an aged look.....
Check out the bat and the spooky spider....are they ADORABLE....I decided to use some of Tyler at All That Jazz Supplies' Black Velvet Paper......LOVE this stuff!!!!  I find  myself continuing to touch it cause I just LOVE the feel of it!!!!
So then I just layered layers and layered...used foam squares on everything.....added a couple of eyelets at the top so I could thread some ribbons through them and tie off....Voila!!!!  Completed......and a fun thing to have displayed.......So...Do you like it???????  I hope so......I think it makes you smile!!! Would LOVE to hear your thoughts!!!!
