Trick or Treat Pumpkin (Blog Hop)

Happy Halloween!!!

Welcome to the Crazy About Cricut Halloween Blog Hop!

I was looking for Halloween images to get an idea for my project.  I find it so much easier to use My Cut Search.  This image is from Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art - not a cartridge I would go to first for a Halloween image!!

I sized Trick or Treat to 5 inches.  I cut it out of black glitter vinyl.  I used my go-to kiss cut settings on my cricut:  3-3-3.  Blade depth, pressure and speed!

I weeded the vinyl and used transfer tape to adhere it to my pumpkin.

I chose the flattest side for my vinyl.  This vinyl is thicker than regular vinyl, so it does not stick in every groove - but it is stuck pretty good and I am ok with that!!

The flourish came from Home Decor.  I sized it to 1.47 inches.  I flipped the design.  I cut this out of Dazzling Diamond from The Buckle Boutique.  I cut Dazzling Diamond out with the gel gems face down on the mat (which is why I flipped the design).

I use my Deep Cut Blade set to 6.

Here is the vinyl.

I added the Dazzling Diamond flourish.  I just love how sparkly this product is!!!  It adds the perfect sparkle to my pumpkin!

I used ribbon from Michaels and tied a pretty bow.  I used my glue gun to adhere it to the top of the pumpkin.

I am really happy with how this turned out!!
