Teddy Bear Witch -My Craft Spot Project

Hello, everyone,  are you ready for Halloween?  I wanted to share one more Halloween project with you for the My Craft Spot challenge this week, the theme is... 
Too Cute To Spook
Make a Cute Halloween Project.

When I was at Wal-Mart the other day I occasionally look at their cricut cartridge (even though my Wal-Mart never discounts their cartridges), so to pay $40 for a cartridge is so unlike me... well, I saw a cartridge that I hadn't ever seen before... Teddy Bear Parade, have you heard of it? I fell in love with it so I had to buy it... yes even at that price :)
Look at this adorable little teddy bear witch... she is too cute to spook!

I used the Best Witches to You stamp set with the Tiny Doily Metal dies along with Golden Harvest and Marmalade crinkle ribbon, all are available at My Craft Spot.
 Added some zig zag stitching on the marmalade crinkle ribbon.
I cut the teddy bear at 3 1/2" and added a bit of Tim Holtz antique photo ink on the bear edges.

Spider Ghosts Goblins -My Craft Spot Project

Hello friends, I have a fun wiggly spider card that I made for the My Craft Spot challenge, this weeks challenge is...
Emboss It
heat embossing or dry embossing 

I choose dry embossing using my Cuttlebug machine and one of the Mini Monster embossing folders, I rubbed white chalk on the embossed edges and a bit on the center of the card.
The spider  was cut using Mini Monsters Cricut cartridge, at 3 1/2" I omitted the face using my gypsy and added two different sizes of googly eyes.

I used the Tiny Doily Metal dies to stamp my sentiment and spider from the Stampin' Around Fall stamp set both can be purchased from Kimberly at My craft spot -HERE, Along with the black crinkle ribbon.
Side view
I used the homemade action wobbles using the technique that Kimberly has shown in her video -HERE.
Inside of the card stamped using the Best Witches to you stamp set, the spider  is from the Stampin' Around Fall stamp set, then I hand drew the line above the spider.
There are more great Embossing ideas over at My Craft Spot, come on over and join us for this weeks challenge -HERE.
