CREATIVE INKING BLOG HOP - SPOOKY FUN!


Welcome to the September Creative Inking Blog Hop! This month we are having some spooky fun. I love the "Cookie Cutter Halloween" stamp set and decided to showcase each of these spooky little friends. There's a lot of pictures in this post, so keep scrolling (and reading)!

I started out with a simple card (great for a stamp-a-stack) and then I had to go and fussy-cut the spider and crow. But they're so cute! The strip of Elegant Eggplant cardstock is stamped with the spider web from "Sweet Home". I used the Craft Whisper White ink. The spider is from the "Halloween Treat" stamp. The Pumpkin Pie blob behind the sentiment is simply ink blended with a dauber.


The other two cards with the Skeleton and Mummy follow suit. 



Then I added the mini-coffins. Aren't they adorable? Dracula is where he belongs in the coffin, and that culprit Mummy is the one who let him out.


And there's no sense making a coffin without the Skeleton having something to do with it.


Here's a close-up of the coffin. You can get this pattern for FREE (click HERE). It's Liz Holloway's pattern and she is giving it free for the asking. Her coffin is about 6 1/2" long, so I reduced it to about 4" to better accommodate these spooky characters. It is available as a cut pattern, or you can print and trace. The coffin not only fits Dracula, but will fit the miniature chocolate bars or individual candies. I stamped the coffins with the "Hardwood" stamp and Craft Whisper White ink. 


The bat and sentiment are from the "Sweet Home" stamp set. The moon is from the "Spooky Fun" stamp set. The twine is the "Halloween Night Baker's Twine".


A list of all the supplies I used (less the coffin pattern) is listed below. All the items are available 24/7 from my online store.


Here's the entire project:


And one last thing before I go...Happy Birthday to my beautiful sister! Love you and miss you so much!
