The trio of little Squeaker Ghosts are so charming I wanted to make them the full focus of a card. I also hadn't used the Haunting Pumpkins so thought a game of peek-a-boo was in order!

I don't have a "peek-a-boo" sentiment but luckily I do have the Poetic Uppercase Alphabet so could create my own!

To keep it fun and not-at-all spooky, I used a lot of glitter paper - the ghosts, the glow of the jack-o-lanterns, and the panel behind the black.

The cobwebs were a last minute decision. I wanted something to break up the solid black background. The new stamp set Halloween Ingredients has a fun and a bit frilly cobweb - although I did end up covering most of the curls and frills.  I embossed it with a sparkly embossing powder.

The jack-o-lanterns are very easy to work with.  There are two dies - one cuts the inside and the outline die cuts them out.  They are lined up five in a row so you can cut them all at once.  The other advantage is that you can then use the outline die to cut a background. In this case, I used the sparkly yellow to get the glowing eyes.

I hand-cut the stems - they are just thin little triangles so easy to do.

The glitter is fairly thick so there's a lot of dimension on this card just because of those layers. I did use dimensional adhesive on the top ghost and the ghost to the right.

I love these little "squeakers". Those happy little faces kept this card fun and happy!

Absolutely precious! Your use of all of the Halloween dies together makes a silent story...that will make the receiver excited! Love your vision! Thank you for inspiring me!

Hi Kim, A brilliant halloween card, the ghosts are so cute, and the pumpkins (to me) look like they are laughing at the ghosts haha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
