Gypsy Smiley Cards Digital Cartridge Devil Vampire Card

Smiley Cards is a fun and really different cartridge!

Well, my friends all good Halloweens must come to an end. 😉  I’ve enjoyed these last 31 days of crafty Halloween and Fall posts.  It’s been a challenge for me, but I’ve enjoyed it.  I’ve loved reading all of your comments especially.  I will soon choose 5 winners who’ve left comments on non-give away posts to win some crafty prizes.  I like that idea so much, I’ve decided to do it again next month too! 🙂  Alright…let’s get on with this card and some peeks at the Smiley Cards cart!

I was happy to be chosen to do some early testing for the cartridge downloads that are part of the Nov 1 release of some carts for the Gypsy.

This screen is showing some shorthand text messages.  Do you like word bubbles?  This cart has a lot of word bubbles in different shapes on it.

You’ll also find a bunch of emoticons (text-like faces) and a cards function.  My favorite thing?  It has a DONUT!!  It also has pie!!  There’s also a pretzel and a beer/root beer.  So…YAY to this cart, LOL!

I increased the sizes of these before I cut them out.

I used my Gypsy to weld 2 backgrounds together to form a card made of out 2 devil/vampire heads.  I’m not sure why he has horns and vampire teeth…whatever…let’s just go with it.  Maybe they’re just ears?

I love that American Crafts foil paper.  It’s GREAT!

I used the ATG to glue the red foil cardstock to the black cardstock.  Zip Dry paper glue was the perfect choice for the teeth.

Here’s the card before I applied Stickles to it.  Stickles are a wonderful glitter glue.

You can read more about them in these posts I wrote:

What’s a Stickle You Ask?

Stickles Distress, Glitz and Regular Compared.

Here’s the inside of the card.  You can use a white pen or put some white paper inside so you can use any color pen/pencil to write a note.

All Stickled up and ready to go trick or treating!

Well, time to pack up the Halloween cartridges for a while.  Let’s move on to Thanksgiving and Christmas!  I have a lot of fun things coming up in November and a really special event planned in December.  We’ll talk more about it tomorrow.  For now…I’ve got some trick or treating to get ready for!


Come back tomorrow for a video and to hear some of my plans for November! 😀

  17. Too cute! I almost got to download my gypsy early (cricut sent me a link) but the beta test failed (which is what they were expecting) so I was thrilled to be chosen for the test download…but I can wait for Nov. 1 to download the smiley cartridge…I think I’m going to have fun with it! Thanks so much for your entertaining halloween posts! I have thoroughly enjoyed them!

    I have been counting down the days until the download!! I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow! I even have the day off from work. Thanks for this sneak peak and card idea! It’s great! And I’ve REALLY enjoyed the whole month of October. You know, I’ve even gotten out of bed on two different nights once I remembered that I hadn’t checked your site that day! THAT’s dedication!! LOL!!!

  19. I love the card. I think it is supposed to be a bat head – that is why the ears and the fangs. It looks super cute in red though! I like it!

    Just a question- are you a mac user? I’m having a super hard time updating my gypsy on my mac. I’m new to the gypsy and haven’t been able to get it to work at all. If you have any hints, will you post them please? thanks!!

    1. A BAT HEAD!! I think you’re right 9isfine! Thank you!
      I don’t use a Mac. I wish I had some helpful Mac hints for you, but I’m Mac”less”.

  43. Can’t believe where October has gone, I just got here. I just found this site this month and ” I will be back”. I liked your fun projects, sense of humor, great information on products and the Gypsy tips. I sure have learned a lot this month , can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next month. Oh! trying to get free stuff is also GREAT, but that’s not why I keep coming back.
