Ghouls & Goodies: Cards with Courtney and Wendy Sue

Hi Doodlebug friends!  It's Wendy Sue here today, sharing some really fun Halloween Cards I made with the fabulous new Doodlebug "Ghouls & Goodies" Collection! I used a few stickers off the sticker sheet, a few embellishments, and a few papers from the 6x6 pad to create both of these cards:
I just love the little costumed characters that are featured in this collection, and these two faces were just too cute to pass up so I had to use them on my first project! 
I started by choosing some fun papers from the 6x6 pad to create the card bases, added a block of solid paper to each one, wrapped them with some doodle twine then got busy embellishing! 
I mounted the circle face stickers onto a block of patterned paper with foam adhesive squares so they are popped up off the card just a little bit. I tucked some sticker banners slightly underneath the face stickers and clipped a few mini paperclips to the block before adhering to the card base. 
I couldn't resist using the awesome coordinating washi tape and a few sprinkles to the solid area.  I can't wait to give these away to some special people with a bag of yummy goodies to celebrate Halloween!

Supplies:
Halloween Treats Sprinkle Shapes



Boo everyone! Did I scare you?! Okay, good. I don't really like scaring people anyway. :) 

Court from Court's Crafts here with a little doodlebug halloween card for you! I am NOT into the spooky halloween stuff at all. I LOVE cutesy halloween. love it. doodlebug's halloween lines are always SO up my ally!!! 

I was inspired by my cousin's quilt square for this card. She made a "wonky log cabin" quilt and I was enchanted with the idea of lines not matching up... as someone who always likes things "square", this was not only a foreign concept to me, but something I needed to do for my creative side.

To do this, I actually cut a 4x4" piece of cardstock into 4 pieces - 2x2" squares... so I couldn't line them up... because like I said, I have issues... ;) Then I did the 2x2 squares individually. You can see that I couldn't even cut the papers with a lot of slope. This totally felt avant-garde to me! haha. 

I also REALLY wanted to highlight the washi tape. There are 4 washi tapes that came out with this collection and I wanted ALL of them on my card! haha. The halloween chevron, "Trick or Treat", spooky stars, and dandy candy are all washi tapes! 

I wanted to show you how cute the new "chippers" look on a card! I put them on both sets of my cards this month. I hope you like them! They are so much fun! 

Helloooooooooo mini paper clips!!! These. Are. Darling. Pick them up. The colors - yum. 

I also wanted to use the fancy frills. I am terrible about using them on cards which is silly because they have a fabulous die cut edge. So I wanted to get a few of those on my card too. Now I am addicted. :) 

Thanks for hanging out with me today and don't forget to enter to WIN this gorgeous new collection!!!!
