Spooky - By the Cute and Girly

My favourite season is here, and also my favourite month of the year - October.
And as you all know by now, a new month means a new challenge over at By the Cute and Girly. This months theme is Spooky and is hosted by Lisa
As always you can make whatever you like as long as it fits this months theme. We have some great prizes to win and you also have the chance to be a guest designer for a month so go and have a look! And don't forget to check out the other girls gorgeous creations.

I just love the Halloween colours - green, orange, purple and black all together, so my first card have those colours and is shaped like a pumpkin.  Well, we don't really celebrate Halloween here in Sweden but I had a lot of fun doing this card anyway.

Papers: Bazzill Canvas Cardstock "Raven", Patterned Papers from The Paper Studio's All Seasons Paper Pack
Stamp: "Exotic Halloween" by Sweet Pea Stamps
Details: Ribbon from Skapa Hobby, Clear Shapes "Spooky" from Panduro Hobby

I got the idea for the second "card" when I saw the Alice in Wonderland movie and the Hallowe'en in Wonderland Collection from Graphic 45 suited perfectly! I decided to make a tea pot. :) I found a great template in the latest number of Magnolia Ink Magazine (lucky me that I didn't have to draw one myself), which I enlarged.

And of course, just like in the movie, Alice is hiding in the tea pot...

Papers: Bazzill Canvas Cardstock "White", "The Mad Hatter" (Front and back), "Jabberwocky" and "Hallowe'en in Wonderland Tags" from Graphic 45's Hallowe'en in Wonderland Collection
Details: Timepieces by Tim Holtz, flowers from Pyssloteket, Rhinestone Stickers "Crystal Clear" from You Do. I distressed the edges with Making Memories Edge Scraper and Tim Holtz Ditress Ink "Vintage Photo". I put some Stickles Glitter Glue "Star Dust" on the flowers.

The last project for the October challenge is a lay out of something I think is really spooky: cobwebs. But how can something this beautiful be so spooky?

Papers: Bazzill Cardstock "Kraft", "The Mad Hatter" (back), "Uncommon Nonsense" (both front and back) from Graphic 45's Hallowe'en in Wonderland Collection

A big thank you to all that visited and to all of you that left a sweet comment in here. :)
