One extra special entry will receive the"Creative Choice" button.

Ready for some inspiration? Let's take a look at what the Design Team created using SVG  diecuts.

Vicki created a very cool coffin card.  She says:  "The Creative Pointe's "COFFIN CARD" SVG makes a classic Halloween card a snap.  Of course, I couldn't just do a plain and simple pine way...I embellished my little heart out for extra eerie fun!  Check out my blog for all the details".  Vicki's blog:  Paper Squirrel

Carolyn made two great JACK O'LANTERN CARDS.  She says:  "I created two Halloween cards with the "Jack O'Lantern Card" from Creative Pointe. On the first Jack O'Lantern card I used design paper for the pumpkin, layered on black background. The card base is brown cardstock by Stampin! Up. I found the spider file in the Make the Cut library which I converted to a SVG file and placed at the tip of the hat. The spiders I stamped with an acrylic stamp I have on hand.  On the second Jack O'Lantern card I used orange cardstock for the pumpkin and the card base is from my craft stash.  The small skulls in corner of each card is a SVG file I created.   Both cards will be sent to my granddaughters in Korea along with a small Halloween gift of candy.:  Carolyn's blog:   Granny Ma's Creative Blog

Cindy used the new SPOOKY SPIDER CARD to create this shaped card.  She says:  "Shaped cards are so fun to make and send...children especially love them!  This one is super quick and easy.  Check out my blog for details on the little touches I added to make this card extra fun."  Cindy's blog:  The Creative Pointe

The JACK O'LANTERN CARD was very popular for this Challenge and Ruth's version uses some lovely designer papers.  She says:  "Happy October! I had a lot of fun picking patterns and colors for my happy Jack-O-Lantern card! I love how the card front is shaped on the edge so you can see the paper inside of the card! Also, if you have a Silhouette machine and use the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software and SVGs from The Creative Pointe, I've got a tutorial on my blog about my process when I use the files. I hope you're inspired to get cutting some fun Halloween cards!"  Ruth's blog:  Paper and Musings

 Octavia used all four files from the JACK PUMPKINS set.  She says:  "I used all four cuts for corner accents, backing them with  pumpkin ribbon.  The base of the card is an orange cloth swatch.  Inside I stamped "Happy Halloween" and embossed with neon orange powder."  Octavia's blog:  T's Corner For Scrappin'

Tina also cut her JACK O'LANTERN CARD using a Silhouette.  She says:  "I put this card together with a bit of help from The Creative Pointe's Jack-O-Lantern Card set, a set that has it all there--the card base and the die cut.  Talk about an easy way to put a card together. Check out my blog at Tina’s Scrap Corner for the details on getting this card cut and put together."  Tina's blog:  Tina's Scrap Corner

Carmen used the JACK PUMPKINS file to create two very cute cards.  She says:  "I created these cards using The Creative Pointe’s "Jack Pumpkins" file. This file has 4 cute little pumpkins and of course you can make them any size you want which is one of the best things about SVG files. I loved these little pumpkins, they all have such adorable faces and went together really easily. Would work well on any projects for Halloween."  Carmen'sblog:  Carmen's Creations
