Happy Haunting!

Mornin' hens!  
Here's my last Halloween card! I thought I'd finish with the same set I started with.  I certainly got my use out of this stamp and die set.  I couldn't get enough of that cute little ghost.  OMG, I love him! 

Now I have to admit my mistake on this one though.  Once I stamped the eyes, I couldn't figure out what was wrong with them.  Then it hit me, duh!  They're upside down!  So rather than toss it, I drew lines on each side and made them look like a mask!  LOL!  Hey, whatever works right?  LOL!
Okee dokee, that's it for me today. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Halloween Treat Bags

Mornin' hens!  I wanted to share with you these cute little treat bags I made for my co-workers. I used the "Happy Haunting" set from Whipper Snapper and several $1 stamps from Michaels. 

I even made the bags!!  Woo-hoo!  I was so proud of myself.  Actually this is printed burlap I found at Walmart in the Halloween section.  It's 6" x 10' long.  Not sure what it's for, but I cut 12" pieces and sewed the sides together. Then I took some jute string and threaded it through the holes of the fabric with a large embroidery needle and made my own drawstring top!

I double stamped the images so each is popped up with foam dots for added dimension. 

To add some color to the kraft cardstock and to make those stitch lines pop, 
I sponged some distress ink to the edges of each tag.

On three of the tags, I punched some red and green cardstock with the dripping goo border punch and then die cut it using the same tag die.  I like the look of the blood dripping on top of the vampire.  LOL!

The DH saw this one and said, "Hey, you made one that looks like me!"  Bwah-ha-ha-ha!

OMG, do you not just LOVE Frankie??  Look at those stick legs and big shoes!  Ridiculous!! 

Here's the green cardstock punched with the goo punch too! Love it!

And what's Halloween without a skull right??  Tee-hee!
Wanna know what's inside????

Eeeeeek!  Aren't they the CUTEST??  I decorated these little Germ-x hand sanitizer using my Silhouette Cameo and adhesive black vinyl. Oh, and of course I put CANDY in the bags too!  LOL! 
Okee dokee, that's it for me today!  I hope you hens have a TERRYFYING Tuesday!!

Wishing you a purrrrr-fect Halloween!

 "I vont to drink your blood"  Bwah-ha-ha-ha!  OMG, is this cat hilarious or what?
I'm sending this one to my sister in law.  She loves cats and I know she'll get a kick out of this card. 

Believe it or not, all the images on this card are from the same stamp set.  This set was designed by Kristina Werner.  I love her illustrations!!  She often creates sets with cats, after her cat Mannie.  

I'm addicted to the black speech bubble lately.  This stamp actually stamps the black leaving the negative space showing through.  I really like this look!  The blood or goo is part of the set as well and I just stamped it using red ink and covered it with Glossy Accents.  Cool huh?  To finish, I added a thin line (web) around the edge and stamped the spider who appears to be hanging from it.  Ok, that's it for me today.  I hope you hens have a PURR-FECT Monday!  {{{hen hugs}}}
