Doodlebug Design Silhouette Cut Files: Spooky Cards by Courtney

I have been BURSTING to tell you all that Doodlebug is now making cut files!!!!

This is Courtney Lee from Court's Crafts here and I made these awesome shaped cards with the new Boos & Brew cut files! They are SO much fun and I am so thrilled that I can cut these awesome critters again and again!!!
Here is my biggest boast for doodlebug cut files (and if you know me, you know that I use cut files 99% of the time... in other words I have cut a lot from a lot of different companies.): doodlebug ROCKED the depth of the cuts. They took the time to put a whole character together and everything has amazing detail. It makes it so easy because you just have to pick the papers and add foam dimension. ... scroll down to the haunted house to see what I mean a little easier. 

They also made the layering on these excellent. They worked from back to front so there is always an outline of the full cut to build on. YES!!!

Okay, seriously... how cute are these cut files... I'm dying over here!!! :)

I zig zag stitched around the pumpkin and I grabbed an old happy Halloween sentiment sticker from doodlebug and curved it around the pumpkin. perfect. 

Check out the spider in Igor's hair!?! I used some googly eyes on the frog. I thought it made him look a little dorkier. :) And I added a matte sprinkle as a wart. ;) The petite prints were perfect for the froggy elements.

Here is what it looked like all done and you can see the shaped card background. :)

Oh Doc, you had me at hello. I am married to a total nerd and I love it. This guy.. ahh! 

If I could have fit a little pocket protecter on this guy I would have but an eyeball in the middle of his bow tie was the perfect touch. I added a matte sprinkle to his hands for emphasis and dimension and my favorite addition was the two different sized googly eyes. 

This eyeball jar is SO much fun. from the bubbles to the colors, doodlebug ROCKED the depth of this cut. 


My final shaped card for you today is this AWESOME haunted house, Frank, and his bride. 

I LOVE doodlebug's haunted houses. I look forward to them with every halloween release. So I was SO excited to use this cut and add some sloppy stitching to make it feel really run down and patched together.

I also skewed the windows (because you can do that with a cut file!!! :)) and added some fun elements.

Did you see the eyeball as the ball on the top of the spire? And of course frank needed a doodle-pop bat in his belfry (I know I know, there are no bells up there but still... )
