31 Days of Halloween - Day 25

Hello folks, and it’s day 25 of the Smeared and Smudged 31 days of Halloween Blog Hop.  All you have to do to take part is to hop through each of the Wicked Blogs that are participating and leave a comment on each project.  All Horrifying Hoppers will receive a Survival Button at the end of the month to proudly post on their blog.

If you’re following the blog hop in order, you’ve arrived here from Teresa’s blog.    If you’ve arrived from elsewhere and you’d like to work your way through all the participating blogs, the blog roll is in the sidebar – just start at the beginning or wherever suits you best.

Today I've used one of the stamps from the Daisy & Dandelion range from Docrafts.  Today the little cat is dressed up as a vampire (he vants to suck your blood, bwa-hah-hah!)


It's an action card again.  Can you tell I've been having lots of fun with all the kinetics?


You can even make him stand on his head!



This is a very easy one to do - it's a variation of a penny slider card.  I punched a hole just a little bit bigger than a penny in the batty paper (G45's Eerie Tale again - left over from another project) and put a penny behind it, stuck a 3d foam circle to the middle of the penny and then stuck another penny to that, so that there's a penny on both sides of the paper.  Then I stuck the kitty onto the penny.
The bigger the hole you punch (or the smaller the foam pad) the greater the range of movement.  I wanted quite a limited range so I punched a small hole - about 3/4 of an inch.

For the mechanism to work properly, I used foam pads to stick it to the background card - Eerie Tale again.   Anyway, I'm off, because today's the day I'm going to visit the Harry Potter studios and I am Very Excited.  See you tomorrow!








Hope you are enjoying the hop.  Don't forget that Scavenger Items will be hidden randomly on the Wicked Blogs, and are not guaranteed to be available every day. You will have to visit blogs to find them. If you find one, you will email and let us know exactly where it was and your name will go into that scavenger item's drawing. Each person who finds the "hidden" picture will get one entry. The drawing for each scavenger prize will be the day after it was posted and winners will be chosen by random number based on who emailed. Thank you for visiting.  Now, if you’re working your way through the roll, it’s on to Renee.  Bye now!
