Three Amigos Blog Hop October 2015

 

Welcome to the October 2015 installment of the Three Amigos Blog Hop!  We are three CTMH consultants and friends who decided to challenge each other every month to create something.  Each month we choose a different theme and for October the theme is interactive!  We're not going to just give you cards that you can just sit around and look at... you're gonna have to DO something!!  When I started out I was going to try to do a magic card (see my mom's blog if you don't know what that is).  But it just wasn't working out the way I wanted it to... I didn't have the right stamps to do what I wanted to do so I changed what I was doing.  I cut a pocket card pocket from Artfully Sent to start.  I added some acetate to the front to make it easier to fill up the front and overlap my pocket window.  I used Nevermore papers to cover the base.
 

 
Then I started layering.  Emma, from Paper Sweeties,  decided to be a witch fairy.  Her dress was stamped on some Nevermore patterned paper and the wings were a last minute decision... and I love them.   I cut them out of CTMH's purple glitter paper.  Her hat came from last year's What A Hoot set... I've been using that set a lot just for hats for Emma but I'm feeling the need to pull that owl out again.. I digress...

 
The pumpkins, haunted house, bats are all cuts from CTMH cartridges, but right now I'm not sure which came from which.  I may update this later but to be honest.. I probably won't.  And that cute little kitty is from the new Operation Smile stamp set, Animal Greetings.  The witches hat is from another cartridge... possibly Happy Hauntings, but not sure.  I scattered Paper Sweeties sequins everywhere because, well, that's how I roll.  The "Happy Halloween" sentiment is from the stamp set that comes with Artistry and "Have a Sweet Day" is from Paper Sweeties.

 
Last but not least, the tag.  I created the night sky by using a circle I'd cut for something and held it on the paper while I sponged colors onto the paper around it.  I started with purples closest to my moon and then got darker as I worked outward.  I made the clouds with some gelatos.
 
IDK.. I like to look at it.  This was around the time I was complaining that I didn't have enough Halloween stuff and later that evening I found out I won a huge stash of stuff from Choux Choux Paper Art Halloween Party which I did get in the mail today and am hopefully going to get to use today.  I'm entering this card in Lori from Choux Choux Paper Arts first challenge ever as well... which ends tomorrow!  There is still time to play along with this one and there is a $25 gift card to win!  So get over there and check it out and play along... if you dare... MUAH HA HA HA (that's an evil laugh in case you couldn't tell... you know... for Halloween!
 
Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to hop on over to Donna's and Susan's blogs and see what awesome creations they have for you to look at!

  5. Wow! What a great scene you have created - I love the gelato clouds (which reminds me that I better pull out my gelatos so that they are in plain sight instead of hidden). The sequins you added to Emma's side ponytails are just adorable! This is a fabulous interactive card! It was so great to find your blog through the CLBH because I'm a new follower.
