Action Wobbles Halloween Co-Hop

You may remember our blog hop in May that featured Action Wobbles. They're self-adhesive collapsible springs that add motion and dimension to flat objects for a unique effect:

Well, we had so much fun with them that we wanted to show you more, this time with a Halloween theme...and I'm delighted to announce that the Action Wobbles Design Team members have joined our Inky DT ladies in this month's hop!

The blog hop starts today and ends tomorrow at midnight. Please visit each DT members’ blog to view their projects and leave a comment for each designer. The more you comment, the better your chances are to win. (Limit one comment per blog, please).

Inky Antics will be drawing THREE people’s names at random, who will each receive an Inky Halloween clear set and a dozen Action Wobbles. The winners’ names will be announced here on Monday morning, so remember to stop back and see if you’ve won. The AW folks will also be giving away even more Action Wobbles, so there will be lots of prizes all around!

Ready to begin? Please hop over to the Action Wobbles blog so you can start to wobble!

For my project, I decorated the front of my card with the first half of 10686D Ghost Game saying stamp, along with patterned papers (1510 Mini Chevron Lime, 1539 Mini Variety Check & 1508 Tandori Mini Lilac) and a tin pin embellishment (DHD18 Trick or Treat) from our sister company Darcie's:


To view the inside, check out this quick video:


You can see how I placed 10707F Gabby Ghost onto an Action Wobbles spring for some "peekaboo" action!

Your next stop will be Scrappin Madge's blog. Here's our full lineup:

Updated 9/23: My second project is a quick and easy card that I put together, which only took about 15 minutes total. It's great if you need to make several to give away.

The stamps are Cube-0501 Frog Cube and 0498E Cast A Spell:

 
I couldn't resist adding a bit of ultrafine glitter on the star of froggie's wand and Glossy Accents to make his eyes shine. But you could always omit these steps and shave off an additional couple of minutes.
 
Of course, what makes this card extra fun is the Action Wobbles spring that I'd placed behind the frog image, which you can see "in action" here:


You can find these stamps plus all of the others used in our co-hop by visiting this page. Thanks so much for wobbling with us!
