Look at the clouds in the background. I made a template by cutting a large scalloped shape across a piece if white cardstock. I started at the bottom of the white cardstock for the house and sponged over the template moving it around in different places using eggplant envy. Then I embossed the house from House of Haunts over the clouds with black. It really is a neat effect. The bat is punched out of black, pressed into the versamark pad, then embossed with iridescent ice. The words are from Tenny Tiny Wishes and punched out with the word window punch. I wheeled all over the pumpkin pie cardstock using the bat wheel. I used the top of a scalloped bag on the inside as a pocket to hold a piece of candy (the bags are in the new mini). There is a black brad on the front just under the house which hold down the front flap down.

Isn't he adorable? The top of the handle has Friend. Good. from Smarty Pants embossed in white on it. Very cute!! I cut 2 top notes out of old olive using the Big Shot. I sponged black around the edges. His hair was made from a piece of a black top note and styled to a nice bang length. His lids were punched from a medium oval punch and his nose was punched from the tab punch. Cut them both in half and sponge black around them, too. His eyes were punched from the 3/4 and 1/2 circle punches. I used the top of the ornament punch to make the spikes on his neck. Then I hand drew the scar and his mouth with a black marker. He will have a cello bag of candy sticking out of the top.
This little treat is quick and easy. All you need is a 51/2 x 21/2 piece of cardstock scored at 5/8, 7/8, 3, and 31/2. Stamp it with the spider web from Wicked Cool with black stazon. Sponge around all edges with classic black ink. Stamp two spiders from Batty For You. Punch out one of the spiders out using a 1 inch cirlce punch, sponge the edge with razzleberry, then use a dimensional to attach it on top of the other spider. Add this to a 11/4 razzleberry circle. Add this to a black scallop circle. Use another dimensional to add this to the jacket. Use a 1/8 circle punch to add a hole for the stick (wiggle it in to get it to fit). Tie a razzleberry bow around the stick. Add some wiggle eyes for fun!

Guess which set this is from? Yep, Wicked Cool. This time I made a bag topper. I am using a medium cello bag stuffed with candy which I cannot buy right now because I will eat it... all. I cut the pumkin pie topper at 5x4 and scored it at 21/2. I stamped the shoes with black stazon and colored the stockings with a pumpkin pie marker. I punched it out with the small scallop punch and added a black layer behind it using the large scallop punch. I added a black bow with a glue dot. Then for fun I added the rhinestones to the shoes. I stamped the web all around the edges with black stazon. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to get the words straight.
Free kisss anybody? I cut a black treat box on my Big Shot ans quickly assembled it using red sticky tape. You need to use 12x12 cardstock with this die. I wrapped some black striped ribbon around it and taped it down under the picture. The handle is a 1x81/2 inch strip of black cardstock held in place with 2 pumpkin pie brads. The images are from Halloween Hoot stamped with black stazon. I used markers to color: daffodil, wasabi, celery, crumb, suede, pumkin, and bashful. I used the 3/4 and 1 inch circle punches for Free Kisses which is also popped up with a dimensional. I think I will put some carmel corn in a cello bag and tie it with an orange ribbon. Stinkin' cute!!

Just Believe is such a peaceful set. I punched a square out of white cardstock using the Scallop Square Punch. I laid that over my white cardstock and sponged Old Olive, Rose Red, then So Saffron on the side. Then I inked the flower stamp with Black Stazon and stamped over the sponged squares. I used the words from Three Little Words. I tied it with wide satin in Old Olive. Simple but elegant.
Whoooooo knew the owl punch could be flipped upside down to create a ghost? This little bookmark was made in minutes! I cut two owl bodies and used dimensionals to hold them together. I added some wiggle eyes and ribbon.
I am still playing with Wicked Cool. This time I used the spider web stamp and Classic Black Ink. The bats were punched with our Bat Punch. Then I used the White Gel Pen to make the eyes. I used Tangerine Tango and Pumpkin Pie cardstock along with white and black. The words are from All Holidays, sponged with Tangerine Tango. Since you can't write on black I actually cut a white base down by 1/4 and added the black to the back. The white flips open and has a spider web stamped inside.

Here is Wicked Cool again. This time I used Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, and Basic Black. The images are stamped with Black Stazon and punched with the Square Scallop Punch. I sponged them with Razzleberry to add a touch of color. I added one of our new Glitter Brads in the center of the images. These brads are very sparkly and much larger than the regular brads. The Old Olive piece has been embossed with the Spider Web using the Big Shot. I stamped spider webs on the Razzleberry base with Black Stazon.
I love this new Halloween stamp set. It is Wicked Cool working with all of the pieces. The new Spider Web embossing folder is also a great new addition. This time I used Concord Grape, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Basic Black. I stamped with Stazon and used a marker to color in the Pumkin Pie stripes and the boots and hat. Spooky is mounted with a Dimensional. I added 3 black brads and a little bit of Black Grosgrain for fun.

This 6x6 scrapbook page is for a swap I am in. I used Eggplant Envy for the background. I also used Pumpkin pie, More Mustard, Basic Black, and Old Olive. The tree and words are from House of Haunts. I stamped them in Black Craft ink and embossed them in clear. I had to cut apart the words. I used the bat punch for the bats and drew little eyes on them using the White Gel Pen. Everything is sponged around the edges in Basic Black ink.
