 And, after that long intro, it is time for my Spooktacular projects!  I have two of them for you -- both cards.  
I'll start with my not-so-spooky ghost card.  I made it using my Silhouette Cameo.


The stamped ghost, the witches hat, and the sentiment are all from the new Get Inky! Stamps 2013 Halloween Spooktacular Stamp Set. Aren't you just loving all the fun images and sentiments included in this set?
The file I used for this card, from the Silhouette online store, can be found here.  The background paper is by Fancy Pants, and there is some 3 Girl JAM ribbon from the Celebrations Bundle.
For my second card, I combined 2 stamp sets:

I used the new 2013 Halloween Spooktacular set and the Joyful Jar Drinks set.  The jar and the label are from the Joyful Jar Drinks set.  The bats and the sentiment are from the new Halloween set.

I stamped the jar twice -- once on white cardstock, once on vellum, and fussy cut both images.  There are 3 fussy cut bats placed "inside" the jar (in between the white c.s. and vellum).  I used Halloween papers from Echo Park for this card.

Your next stop along the hop is the oh-so-talented Sue!  Go check out her wonderful creation for the hop.
