Snoopy Halloween and a Bug! - CBC75, CCC59

Hello, and happy Thursday. I made these cards last night, but just couldn't get the correct lighting for the photos, so I am posting today. My first card today is from the Creative Belli Blog 75. The challenge this time was Halloween colored bling or glitter. This included DSP, brads, glitter, etc...anything you have on hand with Halloween colors. Since the idea behind this blog is to use supplies you already have, I decided to use a stamp that I have had "laying around" for at least 15 years. Sad I know...lol. Anyway...here is what I came up with.

First I stamped the Snoopy stamp (which I have had FOREVER!) onto white CS. I colored him in, and added some white fun flock to him. I punched him out using a circle punch, and layered him onto a bigger circle punched from some candy corn paper that I have had for a couple years. I got that paper from Target...I am so glad to finally being using some of this Target Dollar spot paper. I just had to have it when I saw it, and never used it. Anyway, I added a piece of the same PP to the bottom of the orange CS base, then attached Snoopy too. The separate candy corns are another stamp that has been around for years. I stamped it with orange ink, and added some crystal stickles for some bling. I also added some crystal stickles to the PP along the bottom. Last I stamped the sentiment which is from a Hannah Stamps set. Here is a couple close ups of the fun flock, and the 3-D candy corn.

My second card today is for 2 different challenges. The first challenge is the Cupcake Craft Challenge 59, which was "cute as a bug"...pretty self explanatory...use a bug. The second was my LSS blog, use torn paper on your card. Here is what I came up with.
The ladybug image is from High Hopes. Not sure of the name, since I stamped the image at my friend's house a while back. I colored the image in, and added some red stickles to the dress, and diamond stickles to the antennas. I added some red eyelets to the center of the wheels also. I layered the image onto some red bases black magic paper. I torn the edges, and sanded a little to bring out some red on the front of the CS. I layered that onto some red CS which I also tore. I stamped some ladybugs from the TAC set doodlebugs on the base too.
Well thanks for stopping by today.
