Stylin' Stampin' Squad October Blog Hop

Yaaay - it's blog hopping time!! You may have just come from Dawn's blog. Make sure to leave comments so that our blog contributors can feel the love! This month's theme is Halloween and I love Halloween!  And ... this month's challenge is to use non-traditional Halloween colours. Here is my non-traditional Halloween card:

Inside peek-a-boo frame
SUPPLIES: Paper: melon mambo, lucky limeade, basic black, whisper white 
Ink: basic black, lucky limeade, melon mambo 
Stamps: Googly Ghouls, Got Treats 
Accessories: big shot, peek-a-boo frames, stripes embossing folder, glimmer brad, melon mambo scalloped dot ribbon, silver dazzling details, googly eyes, jewelry tag punch 

I'm slacking off this month and only doing two projects. I really wanted to do another card to coordinate with my 3D project but an unexpected trip to the ER to take my Dad sort of took up my time. He's okay, thank you God, and I'm very grateful that my parents recently moved back so that I can be here to help them at times like this. Sooooo, anyway, here is my 3D project:

 It seems that painter trays have been a popular item lately so I came up with something similar. I found the frame at our Dollar store and decorated it up. Can't wait to put this in my entrance way as we have already started decorating for Halloween and this frame will be a perfect addition. My seven year old is just a little bit excited for Halloween this year!

Paper: crumb cake, basic black, pumpkin pie, very vanilla, 
Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP
Ink: basic black, pumpkin pie
Stamps: Googly Ghouls
Accessories: big shot, window frames framelits, oval punch, scallop square punch, small square punch, linen thread, neutrals collection designer buttons, silver dazzling details, basic rhinestones, frame (non SU)
