Thursday OBG Challenge - Stella 'Over the Hill'

 Oldie but a Goodie day at Bugaboo's Catch the Bug Challenge site. Always so much fun to find one of the older stamps and use it again. In my case I went way back to this wonderful image of 'Over the Hill' Stella. Gives me a giggle everytime I see it.  It must be the Halloween season  influence on my design because I showed it to a friend and she said "Oh a Halloween card". ''Nope" I said "but now that you mention it, I can see what you mean". We had a good laugh. So now I am thinking it would make  a wonderful October birthday card, who knew :O)!
Note: I am showing two version of the same card as I thought maybe the first was too plain.
Stamp; Bugaboo's  'Stella's Birthday 'Over the Hill'

Happy Halloween Sentiment- Bugaboo - NR

It is New Release  Day at Bugaboo Stamps and this is my card interpretation for their new adorable image called BUGHWEENSENT- Halloween Sentiment.. This wonderful image by Bugaboo Stamps is perfect for creating cards or projects for the younger 'trick & treaters'. It is not scary, just looks like fun and  both young and old can enjoy it.

You can check out the new release at Catch the Bug  and see other interpretations of this fab image. All new release images are 50% off for week of the new release. The little poem at the bottom right is not part of the set but a Rubbernecker (rubber)  stamp . The leaf accessory is an older rubber stamp from Stampin' Up called Autumn Splendor. I added a few more accessories  (ribbon & half pearls) to complete the card. The paper is all Stampin' UP.

If the verse is hard to read it is as follows (Rubberneck stamp):
 When black cats prowl
 and pumpkins flicker
 to get to the treats
 you must be quicker

Halloween Layout

#175 Things that go Bump in the Night: a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and  this time  we are asking for something Halloween. It does not have to be a card , it can be anything you want, just as long as it matches  the challenge theme. I choose to do a page  for my son's Halloween scrapbook. I decided quite a while ago to update his Halloween  scrapbook from  pictures pasted on some cardstock to something more  eye pleasing. In this case the only items retained from that page are the photo and the white ghost sentiment.. I am a little behind in this I must say!

The solid papers are Stampin' Up's and the Halloween paper is ??, (bought long ago and I cannot remember). The embellishments are also a happy  puzzle, all I know is the chipboard tag is from  a Graphics 45 tag package and the Halloween spider web border  is a Martha Stewart  punch ,

Spider Web Happy Halloween


 The challenge this Saturday over at Bugaboo's Catch the Bug challenges is "BINGO". Always a favourite of mine, takes some of the stress out of deciding what to create :O)! Did try to make it masculine to some degree (not required for the Bugaboo challenge).

I chose the bottom line - Sentiment, Halloween Theme &, Button for my card.
The stamp is titled 'Silhouette - Happy Halloween Circle' and contains both the sentiment and the image and captures the essence of the theme.
Do come and join the fun, just go here.

Dies: CuttleBug- Provo Craft (large Bat), Memory Box Grapevine Border
Other: button with ribbon from stash , small silver rhinestones 
Paper: Stampin' Up
