Lawnscaping Fall Blog Hop: Hoppy Halloween

Welcome to the Lawnscaping Fall Blog Hop. I'm so glad you're here! You should have come to me by way of Gabrielle Lowe. The month's theme is all things pumpkin and beautiful changing leaves: FALL! The hop runs from Friday, October 5th at 8:00am EST, until Sunday, October 7th at 11:59pm EST. Make sure to comment on all of the blogs to be eligible for some FANTASTIC prizes! All of the details can be found on the Lawnscaping home page.

Here’s my take on the Fall theme:

hoppy-halloween-front-2hoppy-halloween-inside-2

When I think fall, I think Halloween so I went with a Halloween card for my hop project. I also really liked the bit of purple in the blog hop graphic and let it totally inspired me. I wanted to make sure to include some purple in my card.

I created the card using the Square Flip-it’s die by Sizzix as well as several Lawn Fawn stamp sets. I used Hoppy Halloween, Happy Haunting, A Birdie Told Me (I’m loving the thought bubbles!), and Just My Type.

Interactive cards can be hard to photograph to really show off the full effect so I took the above photos so you could see just how cool they are.

Supplies:

InLinkz.com
Other: white pen; patterned paper - Whoo-Ligans Strip and Whoo-Ligans (Bo Bunny).

Now, head on over to Lauren’s blog. If you've gotten off track, don't worry! Head back to the Lawnscaping blog to see the complete list of designers and prize information!

Thanks for hopping by! :-)

Hi Gretchen, let me start by telling you that your a girl after my own heart. I love to see when someone shares a lot of photos of their cards or projects. I think it truly lends to getting the idea behind your card and what you were going for. You did such and awesome job on your card. I know it's weird, but I just received the Happy Haunting stamp set in the mail today and I am so so happy to see your card and what you did with your stamps. It is truly an inspiration to me and now I can't wait to get started first thing in the morning playing with my new stamps. I love the way you have used your little ghosts on the front and then showed the house on the inside. Your papers really bring everything out and I just love your card from top to bottom. lol... Really super cute. Have you ever done a tutorial on how you make that style of card? I would so love to see how you did that. I think it is a fun and very professional looking card all rolled up in one. Thanks for sharing. Hope you have a great weekend. Hugs, Lisa G
