Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop – Halloween!

Hello Creative Friends,

I am so excited to share my spooky creations with you today!  Halloween is my favorite holiday!!  Participating in this hop has got me super excited because I can’t wait to see all the wonderful, frightful creations! I have made a card and an adorably, spooky coffin treat box!

My first project is this creepy, cute, coffin!  The coffin pack can be ordered from the Holiday catalog. They come already cut and scored and there are 12 in the package. To start my project I used the cute little spider die from the Wicked dies in the holiday catalog. I cut out a spider on the top of the coffin.  I then added some Silver Foil paper to the negative space cut from the coffin on the back side.  I did not want the foil paper to show when the coffin was opened, so I added some the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper on the inside.

Cute right?  I added it to the top and the bottom on the inside of the coffin. Before I folded the coffin, I wanted to add some spider webs to the top.  I used my Versamark pad and randomly stamped spiderwebs from the Wonderfully Wicked stamp set.  I then heat embossed the spiderwebs with Silver Embossing Powder to match the silver foil paper!  Next it was time to fold up the coffin.  I did this using my Tear and Tape to be sure it would stay adhered.  Once I had the coffin finished it was time to decorate it!  I used the Ornate Frames Dies to cut out a ornate frame in Smoky slate.  Then, I used the Basic Black Scalloped Edge Ribbon to wrap around the coffin and the frame. After that I punched out a circle in Basic Black card stock with my 1 1/2 inch circle punch.  I stamped the Open if you dare sentiment from the Spooktacular Bash stamp set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White paper. This was die cut with a different die from the Ornate Frames dies. I then added this onto the ornate frame with dimensionals.  I will be putting some yummy treats inside for someone special!

Now on to the card!

I would consider this card to be a relatively quick and easy project.  I started with a card base of Basic Black card stock cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4. I then cut some of the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper (DSP) to 3 3/4 x 5 inches.  I used my sponge dauber and lightly sponged Memento black ink around the edges.  The next paper layer is Pumpkin Pie card stock cut to 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 inches.  I embossed this with the new Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder. I used my Layering Circle Dies to cut out a scalloped circle in Basic Black cardstock and one of the spooky haunted houses from a different paper from the Monster Bash DSP set. The sentiment is from the Spooktackular Bash stamp set and was cut out using the Ornate Frames Dies.  I added some black ink around the edges with my sponge dauber.  To add my “bow”  I simply folded Basic Black Scalloped Edge Ribbon to look like a bow and then added glue dots to hold it together.  I did this to help lessen the thickness. I used my 1 inch and 3/4 inch circle punches to punch out circles in Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake card stock.  I used the bat from the Every Season Punch Pack to add one more spooky element.

Did my creations give you some ghoulishly cute Halloween ideas?  I hope so, but remember there is more to go! Be sure you head over to the next blog so you can get all your eerie creative ideas in one day!  Just click on the names below to hop on over to the next blog.
