Happy Hauntings

Welcome to the Jacksonville STARZ Blog Hop. This month our theme is Halloween.  Pinterest is just booming with ideas for Halloween, which led me to create these "Pinspired" projects.

The card is "Pinspired" by Lynn Pratt & Karen Morris. I really love how the tombstones turned out. I changed Lynn's original card by changing the coloration and making the tombstone haunted by a ghost instead of a bat. I used Karen's technique to create the bats using the Butterfly punches.

These cute little Monster Treat Boxes are "Pinspired" by Debbie Henderson. I must admit that I had no intention of purchasing the Curvy Keepsake thinlit, but after seeing the creative things that Debbie did with it, I couldn't resist. Even my husband loves these little guys!!!

I used the 3/4" circle punch for the eyes and eyelids.

Frankenstein's nose is the scrap left over from the handle of the Curvy Keepsake Box. His pupils are made from the 1/2" Circle Punch. I created his hair using the Large Oval punch with little triangles cut out of it. I finished up his mouth and stitches with a Black Stamp'n Write Marker.

Dracula's teeth are the tips of the Pennant Punch, and his nose and pupils are from the owl punch (since I still had it out from making the card). I cut a scrap piece of Basic Black with the Curvy Keepsake thinlit, and then I used a 1" circle punch to shape his widow's peak. I finished\up by giving him bloodshot eyes and bloody fangs with a Real Red Stamp'n Write marker. I can't wait to make more creatures!
