For my project today, I am featuring the most adorable Happy Haunting set. I love the awesome sentiments in this set along with those precious little characters all dressed up for Halloween.

I started by coloring the cute little ghost and vampire images from the Happy Haunting set. I then fussy cut them out going right up to the stamped line.

{TIP} - when fussy cutting right to the line, take a black pen and swipe it over all the edges of your cut out. This will help hide any imperfections while fussy cutting.

I then die cut the awesome new Up a Tree die set, twice so I could have a fuller forest and have something to tuck my little cuties behind.

I took a piece of the super fun Wicked paper collection and added it to my top-folding card base. This paper collection came out last year and if you don't yet have it in your stash, it is absolutely perfect for all your Halloween crafting.

I then added my vampire first, then the back tree layer. I then added my ghost and finally added the top tree layer with some foam tape.

{TIP} - use black foam squares when adding black card stock items to your project. This way you won't be able to see the white foam when looking at your project from an angle.

My sentiment is also from the Happy Haunting set. I popped it up with some foam tape for dimension. It was at this point I decided my card needed just a bit of something else so I pulled out the new By the Light of the Moon dies.

This is an awesome die set as you get the partial moon, the full moon, lots of stars and even a smiley face you could put into the moon.  I added my moon so that a bit of it would hang off my card panel - this helps ground the scene a bit.

I finished the card with just a bit of white and black glaze pens for a bit of extra detail.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you've been inspired.
