Die Cuttin' Divas Guest Design - Happy HOWLoween Plus Bonus Card and Video!

I'm super excited today to be a Guest Designer and share a 'not too scary' 😉 HOWLoween card with you using this week's sketch over at the Die Cuttin Divas' challenge blog!

I started off by layering my Halloween papers over an orange cardbase and then added my diecut cut from the Pumpkin Carvings Cricut cartridge, which I cut with my Explore.

I coloured this adorable werewolf from the Werewolf Digital Stamp set by Pretty Cute Stamps using Prismacolor and Hobby Colour Markers and popped him up with foam dots to give him a bit of dimension.

I printed the digital sentiment, included in the set directly onto my patterned paper and added some handdrawn stitching lines around a banner diecut with a Spellbinders die and my Cuttlebug. The cute little pawprints are cut with my Cricut again using the SVG file from the coordinating PCS Fur Baby stamp set and stamped with the little paw print.

Inside, I used another sentiment included in the set along with a sweet sucker from the PCS Candy Faces Digital Stamp set and I diecut the white background using another Spellbinders die.

I added a few tiny star sequins from the SpiegelMom Scraps store.

Here's a look at the awesome sketch they are using over at the Die Cuttin' Divas blog:
The first Halloween card was so fun to create that I decided I would whip up another one using the PCS Mummy Digital Stamp set and make a little YouTube video for you!
