Inspired by Bunnicula

I got a very silly book from my fiancée as a Halloween gift, it's called "Bunnicula", and of course it's already gotten me to giggle. I really do appreciate weird stories! (I plan on rewatching "The Curse of the Were-rabbit", very soon, I have to add.)
I wanted to give my youngest niece a little Halloween card, but it couldn't be too fancy, because I'm a bit worried that she may eat everything that's not properly glued down. Being in the spirit of Bunnicula already, I thought I'd use the little trick- or treat bunny.
Well, here is the result. Very CAS to be me!

Couldn't resist a bit of dimensionals.

Inspired by Bunnicula card:

Stamps: American Crafts – Spooky
Ink: Brilliance graphite black
PTI Cardstock: Enchanted evening
Special copic paper
PTI Orange Zest Damask patterned paper
Crop-a-dile corner chomper: stub/deco

HahaHalloween Card / HahaHalloween Kort

I'm no Melissa...But I had fun. That's what counts!

Not too long ago, Melissa Philips posted a MIM video (#83) on how to make one of her fantastic cards. I've been yearning to try, though I haven't had any time until now. My time is filled with work, and I wonder if I work 100% or 150%?... I'm rather sure it's closer to the latter!
Anyhow, I decided that I'd finally try it.
I use the same layout (almost) as Melissa, but I do my own take on it, as usual.


Inte för allt för länge sedan gjorde Melissa Philips en video som visar hur hon gör ett av sina fantastiska kort. Jag har längtat efter att testa själv, men jag har inte haft tid förrens nu. Ibland undrar jag om jag verkligen jobbar 100% - det har varit närmare 150% efter sommaren!
Jag bestämde att jag måste göra något åt saken och här är resultatet. Jag använder (nästan) samma layout som Melissa gör på sitt kort, men jag har gjort det på mitt vis, som vanligt.

My First Halloween Card 2012

Right now I don't have time for anything! My workload has been a bit extreme lately, to say the least. I was so stressed out that I just had to take a break and do something else for awhile. This is what happened yesterday evening, when I decided that I needed to make something fun, just for me, for just a couple of hours...
The lesson learned: It's very much easier to work when you take breaks!

Stuff used:
Bazzil cardstock, Panduro kartong, PTI patterned paper Orange Zest Damask
Old button, green twine, red leafy ribbon
Stamps: Inkadinkado "trick or treat Halloween 99133", Clear choice stamps "Pressed leaves"
Ink: Versa Magic Sage, Brilliance Graphite Black
Copic markers
Stickles: Orange, red, white and brown
