Two Boo's

Hello, friends!  Sharing a little fun and frivolity today.  This is probably the last of my Halloween cards this year.  Same image, two cards.  Just wanted to be sure and use the Boo Ghost digi I picked up at Bugaboo.
 
The first one is shockingly bright with some Doodlebug Halloween paper and nearly-neon green cardstock.  I made orange spider webs and a white spider so they'd show up better against the paper.  Popped a cute little bow on there because you know I have all that ribbon to use up.  There's glitter on the spider and stars, and the spidery border strip is glittered, too.
 
 
 
 
The second card is not quite as bright.  More glitter (which I didn't capture very well on either card).  This one has a Doodlepop spider sticker and uses a scrap of starry paper left over from the first card.
 
 
 
 
I used the same Copics on each card, but somewhat rearranged the colors:
 
 
 
I won't bend your ear too much today.  All supplies are listed in the recipe below and I think it's pretty easy to see what went where.  Thanks for coming to visit!

Sooo cute! Leslie, your little Halloweenie cards are fantastic! Lovely coloring as always, but delightfully spooky creations! These must have been especially fun to put together! Wonderful papers, too. Thanks for the gorgeous card in today's mail! I want to create a collage of your cards!

These are just too fun! I love how the webs frame the top of the first card, and the expression on that pumpkin just makes you laugh out loud, fun papers with it too, the way you added the sparkle around the image on the second one is too cool, these are great :)

These are both so fun and cute. I really like the web die cuts, very fun cards Leslie.

Both fabulous cards. Cute image and great layouts for both of them. Halloween is such a fun holiday. I didn't realize or I forgot (senior moment) that we shared a birthday month (as well as my sister). Thank you so much for the awesome butterfly card. It really made my day.

Pauline said...

Super cute, love them both. Great way to stretch your digis by making 2 cards. Love the fun papers, bright colours, and that spider web - way too cool! And I guess you had a birthday as well, happy belated birthday Leslie, I hope you had a wonderful day!

CherylQuilts said...

Oh my! Leslie, this is absolutely a riot! The digi is so funny and sweet, and I love both of your cards! And the web die is fabulous along with all the others! Love that spider! You had to have a lot of fun making these! They made me smile immediately!!! Hugs! xoxo

I found you again and love today's Halloween card! I know I read a while back that you had moved your blog, but I never had the chance to subscribe. I've been doing a lot of my blog reading on the run, flagging things to go back to and then never getting a chance. It has been quite a year. My mom passed away in the spring, my daughter went off to college and my son fractured his arm (the dominant one of course), which required surgery to insert 2 plates and 13 screws. Needless to say my 21 year-old is dependent on my again as he recuperates. He can't drive and his activities are very limited. I will welcome 2017 with open arms!

What adorable Halloween cards! I like bright and bold colors especially for Halloween. The little spiders dancing across the card made me laugh! Have a great week!
