Today Design Team Member Debbie Standard created this fun layout that is all about Trick-or-Treating! How much do you love the purple??? Add you favorite accents and other Core to this great collection for fabulous layouts. I love how debbie layered her alphas right over the sanded Halloween sentiments.

And Just in case you were curious…Black Magic isn’t just for Halloween! You can use it on your day-to-day cards as well. And Debbie added some May Arts Ribbon on this card traditionally used for Halloween projects, too. Dies are Spellbinders.

Today we have some cards for you!

Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira created this FUN window card. Is it ever possible to have too much woodgrain?  I didn’t think so. She used the Sizzix Tim Holtz woodgrain folder for the embossing and then the woodgrain Sweet Stamp Shop  stamped on the inside of the card.

And close up of the flowers. Melissa used a Spellbinder’s Label die to create the window.

And the inside:

And Design Team Member Debbie Standard created this cute card! She used the back of her cardstock for the bus and all that fun embossing and sanding is just perfect! Don’t forget to run that “grass” through your Fiskars Paper crimper for that perfect look…add a Petaloo flower and you have a perfect Back To School card!

Love this idea that Kim does…she embosses, sands, and  then splatters some paint on it.

Kim ROCKED the Darice embossing folders. We just love them..on this layout she used the Gears folder and just love all the amazing little details Kim does on her layout including the Bella Blvd photo corner just turned on an angle a bit and how she repeats that shape in the orange Core Essentials.

And remember that Glitter Silk giveaway from yesterday?  Kim uses it beautifully on this card…the white might be my FAVE!

And..we have a layout from Design Team Member Char Dobson. Char rocks her Cricut and loving the waves on this layout as a background. Char did loads of sanding here and distressed the orange cardstock for some added texture. Love all those colors against the brown.
