hallows eve inspiration & more twig wreath


Welcome to day 5 of the Papertrey Ink August release countdown. Today is another group post day and the whole design team is sharing a whole lot of Halloween inspiration! Halloween is one of my favorites to create for and so I am very excited to share and see what the rest of the design team created! I also have one last card to share with you that I created with my new Twig Wreath set.

All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on August 15th, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink.


Up first are the cutest little clips to attach to a bag of Halloween treats that I created with the new Make it market Mini Kit: Halloween Pin-Ups. I stamped up the skeletons for my treat bags and then attached them right to the clothespins that are included in the kit.


I love the Halloween twine that is a part of the kit and used that to attach the tags that I stamped to the clips. So easy and fun and SO CUTE!


This month, the Petite Places: Spook Manor house is this great little haunted house! I stamped it on the coordinating die cut and added the window details with the die cut pieces that I glittered up with a black glitter. The new Scene It: Hallows Eve dies were perfect for creating a spooky forest for my haunted house to sit in.


The sentiment I used is from the Happy Spooky Halloween set and there's another bit of that Halloween twine from the MIM Mini Kit: Halloween Pin-Ups!IMG_0659

How fun is the new Haunted Headstones set? I stamped up my own little cemetery and I love the fun and witty sentiments/inscriptions that are included in the set to use on the headstones.

The headstones on my card are stamped in Smokey Shadow ink that is stamped off once and then I stamped the sentiments in Smokey Shadow on top of that. My cemetery ground is actually one of the In the Meadow dies that I die cut from some True Black patterned paper.


Flying above the cemetery are some glittered bats that I die cut with the coordinating Haunted Headstones dies. They are the perfect spooky touch to finish off this card!


And finally I made up the cutest candy corn shaker tags using the new Shaker Shapes: Candy Corn dies. I will probably make up some more tags for other family and friends, but these are just a bit more special for my girls.


I used the tag die cut and Halloween twine from MIM Mini Kit: Halloween Pin-Ups (the bags are from the kit too!) I added the girls names to the tags with the Type Strips II set and coordinating die and the stamped bat is from the Haunted Headstones set.


I love how fun it is that the candy corn is divided into sections so you can add different things into each part if you wanted to. Later, I will slip the tags right onto one of the scrapbook pages that I create for this year.


Now, taking a full turn from the Halloween themed projects...IMG_0879

Here is another card created with my new Twig Wreath set. This time I did a wreath with out using the branchy base that is included in the set. I made 1 3/4" circle mask (you could really do a circle of what ever size you wanted to) and then stamped the flower and foliage elements all around the edge of it.


When I finished stamping the elements, I pulled off the mask and added the sentiment to the center of the wreath in Dark Chocolate ink. So pretty. As a finishing touch there are a few tiny rhinestones scattered through the wreath for a little bit of shimmer.
