Aren't  they adorably spooky? Ok maybe the red eyes gives you the creeps but that is what Halloween is about and also candy.

Stamps used

These are available as sets or single stamps.

Baby                                                             Doll

Start off by using a make up sponge to dab on purple ink and then spritz another ink over the top.

Once dry,stamp over the top in black ink with the Grunge Cobwebs stamp and then take a small spider stamp and add it ti the cobwebs.

To create the wings, take the large winged skeleton  from the Halloween  Bingo set and ink just the wings and stamp them out onto card.  

Stamp out the dolls onto white card and colour in with pencils or markers. Cut everything out and use a small amount of double sided tape to attach the wings to the back of the dolls.

Add small print out hats, spooky words and gems to finish.

ScraPerfect Shaker Bookmarks Flowers

Hi all

Would you like to learn how to make these fun shaker clips?
Tutorial is below.

  Start off by cutting out the pieces using a nesting die. Cut the base and top out first and then place a smaller die into the center to create a frame. Cut out two from craft foam and one from card.

 Glue the foam pieces together and then glue them to the base using Best Glue Ever. Once the glue has dried, fill the box up with sequins and micro beads.

Seal the box over with acetate and then glue the patterned paper frame over the top.

Decorate each one, i added small letters and gems to the clips. I then glued them onto large paperclips and placed some tape over the back to hold the clips in place while the glue sets.

I have a very summery tag to share using bright colours and the new surfboard stamp by The Blank Page Muse.

Assorted Ink Pads
Assorted Mist Sprays
Embossing Powder
Modelling Paste 
Gems, pearls and other small embellishments.

Start of by using three mist sprays and spraying on the ink in bands of colour.
