Welcome to the Something Wicked This Way Comes LBC New Release and Blog Hop!!  Prepare to be scared out of your PJ’s and rush to your crafty zones for comfort as you check out the amazing “wicked” projects that the LoveBug Creations CT has designed for the enjoyment of Halloween!

If you arrived here from Stephanie, then you are in the right spot. 
If you just happened to stumble across the hop today on my blog and would like to start at the beginning,
be sure to head over to the Lovebug Creations Blog and see what Pamela and Kim created for your enjoyment.

First LBC wants to thank CT Connie for creating the Wicked Blog Hop Button. It’s witches and pumpkins and things that go bump in the night featured here and to celebrate the treat giving event, LBC wants to share some new products with our crafty pals. Visit our online store HERE

Sneak Peek
Some of our designers will be showing off some of the NEW Mama's Mesh colors that will be hitting the store soon so keep your eyes peeled for them!!!

The Wicked Release
First we have some eye-popping solid Rumple Ribbon in three new yummy colors – Purple People Eater, Harvest Moon, and Monster Skin; these colors also have a Mardi Gras palette too, so grab them quickly before they disappear into the night of fright!
Say hello to the
  "Fright Night" Collection

And for the fun of “something wicked” we’re unveiling a limited collection of Rumple Ribbon called “Halloween Grunge”; there are six colors of vintage blends to give your projects the perfect Wicked Factor.  Only a select number of these have been created so when they’re gone, they’re gone! All six colors are included in this special collection.

A Wicked Deal

2. Spend $25 before shipping and you will receive 2 free yards each of White edged with Black Rumple Ribbon, Black Edged with White, and Red Edged With Black Rumple Ribbon!!!

Here is my Wicked Project:

I decided to alter a Frappe Bottle and fill it with some candy and I also made a coordinating card.

To decorate my bottle, I used a Spider Web border punch and layered some patterned paper on top of that. I then wrapped that around my bottle and secured it with some sticky tape. Once that was adhered, I wrapped some bling around my paper layer and topped it off with a 3D spider.

 I used some Simply Black Rumple Ribbon as well as some Purple People Eater Rumple Ribbon to tie a bow around the neck of my bottle. Look at the gorgeous purple!!!

For the lid, I punched out some circles and layered them on top of each other and then added a 3D spider.

For my card, I used my spider web border punch again except this time, I layered it on top of my patterned paper. I added some bling to the web as well as some of that gorgeous
I stamped my hat image onto some white cardstock and then used a spellbinder die to punch it out. I then adhered it to my card using some foam adhesive. I stamped my sentiment onto the bottom right corner using a stamp from Joy's Life Stamps. I then added a little more bling to the hat as well as the top right hand corner of my card.
