Peachy Keen October Release Party Challenges

Hello everyone! Did you like how the new Peachy Keen Release Party was set up this time? I unfortunately missed it, so you'll have to let me know what you thought! 
AND, how about those NEW stamps? LOVE...there's so many fun things in this release! Angelica did an awesome job on these!

We have a couple of release party challenges going on so here are my projects for your inspiration
For the first challenge you are to use ONLY 2 colors. No, white and black are not free..eek! LOL! SO, I did a white and black card.
To get the designer b&w papers, I stamped them using Grandma's Bathroom Floor background stamp. I heat embossed the white on the black paper and cut them into strips. I embossed the background mat using the Cuttlebug Seeing Spots folder and layered my strips on top. I stamped the ghost from Peachy Keen's Halloween Minis stamp set and also used the BOO sentiment from it too. 

For the second challenge, you are to make a 3D Halloween project. I used the pumpkins from the new October stamp of the month set. I paper pieced them and cut them out. I added them to a simple sucker cover and made the sentiment banners. I closed them with some twine and threaded the sentiment banners onto the sucker sticks.

I hope you will all play along in the challenges and thanks for stopping in! Have a great weekend!
