Top Dog Dies Guest Designer

Hello there Crafters!!!!
I am so excited to be here guest designing for Top Dog Dies!!!!
Hope you'll stop by the Top Dog Dies blog and leave me some love!!!

I have been playing around with their halloween dies and party dies! So much fun!!!

First up, some halloween fun...
I love white pumpkins!!! I couldn't wait to make some. I used the Top Dog Dies Pumpkin Die Set.  To create the card base I trimmed some watercolored cardstock and created a mask for the moon.  I used canary ink from Colorbox. I inked it up the background with faded jeans and stormy sky distress inks than added a splash of water.
I am adding this to Fusion Card Challenge

I die cut all my pumpkins using cardstock from Papertrey Ink. Than adhered them to the watercolored base.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink, Happy Haunting.  I stamped the sentiment with black ink from Memento and added some silver stars purchased from Michaels.

I love pumpkin patches...for this card I used the Top Dog Dies Pumpkin Die Set. I added some funny eyes from Michaels. I trimmed some cardstock for my base than made some rolling hills with oval dies from Spellbinders. 
I am adding this card to Curtain Call

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink, Happy Haunting. I used black ink from memento. For a finishing touch I added some wood stars from Stucio Calico.

My last halloween card...
This is one of the cutest die sets ever!!!! Top Dog Dies Wicked Witch Die Set, there are so many different ways to use this!!! The details in this die are amazing!!!!
I am adding this card to Addicted to CAS...sparkle

I wanted to make some funky witch stockings!!! I trimmed some purple and green cardstock into thin strips and adhered them onto some scrap paper, than die cut them and there you go...funky witch stockings!!!  I die cut the shoes and buckles and adhered them to the stckings. The witches dress was cut twice, once with black cardstock than with vellum. Love the double layer...looks like tulle! All cardstock is from Papertrey Ink. After positioning the witch to the base I stamped the sentiment, from WPlus9, Sparkle and Shine, and adhered some glitter to the word sparkle. The cord and stars are from Michaels.
***********
The next two cards were created using Top Dog Dies Make A Cake Die Set , and Mr. & Mrs. Banner Die Set
I used watercolored cardstock to die cut the cake and vellum to die cut the scalloped icing. After I adhered the cake to the card base I added some dots of icicng using liquid pearls in white. The violet flower blossoms are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I die cut the Mr. & Mrs. banner and heart banner from silver glitter cardstock from Recollections. The sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.

I adhered pattern paper from Lil'Inker Designs for the card base. I created the cake using pink cardstock and vellum for the icing. I die cut the candles with solid cardstock than added some white dots with a white gel pen. The flames were cut using gold catdstock.
I die cut the banners using solid cardstock, Papertrey Ink and pattern paper, My Mind's Eye. I finished the card using enamel dots from My Mind's Eye.
