Take a Walk in the Moonlight Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us on our “Take a Walk in the Moonlight” Blog Hop!  We have a fabulous path for you to follow as you take your walk in the moonlight with us as we feature Close to My Heart’s Moonlight paper pack.

  My project is a couple of Halloween cards:

For this first A2 size card, I edged the White cardstock with Smokey Plum ink.  I then cut a bunch of circles at 1", 1 1/4", 1 1/2" and 1 3/4" out of the Moonlight paper pack.  I used our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut them:  page 21, A1, < Circle1 >.   I used the Sizzix Spider Web Embossing Folder on the black circles to give them some dimension.  I then cut the face using our Artiste Cricut cartridge - it's on page 77, Accent 3, < Hallween > cut at 1".  The "Oct 31st" and "BOO!" images came from our Perfect Fit - Halloween stamp set.  I stamped them with Goldrush ink and White Daisy ink.

For this second card, I again used our Moonlight paper pack.  I cut 3 banners using our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge - page 68, A8, < Banner1 > cut at 1/2" x 2" and 3/4" and 2 1/4".  The bat on the top left of the card comes from the Artiste Cricut cartridge on page 76, E6, Card, < Eek! > cut at 1".  I stamped the sentiment "no bones about it" using White Daisy ink.  The skeleton and the sentiment come from the Creepy Creatures stamp set.  The "HAPPY HALLOWEEN" sentiment comes from the Perfect Fit - Halloween stamp set and was stamped with Smokey Plum in.

For this A2 size card, I cut the first mat at 4" x 5 1/4" and the next layer at 3 3/4" x 5".  For the strips that go across, I cut 4 strips at 3/4" x 5".  I used the zip strip for the sentiment "good times brewing."  I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut the various circles:  Page 21, A1, < Circle1 > cut at 1 1/4", 1 1/2", and 1 3/4" and page 31, B1, < Circle2 > cut at 1 3/4" and 2 1/4".  I used our Perfect Fit -Frames and Perfect Fit - Halloween stamp sets.
