Welcome to this Halloween themed hop by members of some online training groups that are looking to grow in their Stampin’ Up! business.

One of the best things about Stampin’ Up! for me is the friends and even more crafting with friends.

Since you can’t always do that in person when your friends are all around the globe, a blog hop is a great way to come together and share our love for creating.

This month, it is all about Halloween, one of my faves!

I am using a combo of new and old Halloween stamps for my card, and here they are.

Sweet Home Photopolymer Stamp Set #140936 Price: $21.00

Graveyard Gate Clear-Mount Stamp #144765 Price: $22.00

This is actually a  motion card, but having trouble uploading the little video for it.  ARGH!

In the meantime, here is the card closed, and then here is the card open.

I added a ‘stop’ in the works to keep it from coming out too far, which is a interesting option.

It keeps the illusion alive if they don’t see the ‘guts’ of you animated image.

It also allowed me to hide the ‘Happy Halloween’ sentiment at the top of the pull up piece.

The video will show it much better… still working on it, please check back!

The motion cards are so cool and Halloween ghosts are just a perfect thing to have move!  I am also envisioning twinkling Christmas lights, moving wise men, so many more options!

I did a tutorial in the summer on all the tricks and tips I learned from many hours of playing with the ‘you Move Me’ bundle and how to add motion to any stamp.  If you missed it, here it is for purchase (and instant download) and some card videos that actually work . lol  pdf tips for adding motion basics

Here are the rest of the hoppers and their projects, have a great week and make something that MOVES you!
