Happy Lil Inker New Release Day!!! You should have arrived here from the beautiful Karen Baker’s blog. Laura has some INCREDIBLE Halloween goodies for you and I have been having a total blast making fun little holiday cards and crafts!!! First are these two little pillow boxes that I created using the Halloween Word Tag Dies, Tombstone Peek-a-boo Die Set, and the Batty Hugger Die and Stamp Bundle. Aren’t they adorable?! And the one on the left has a fun added perk to it… I die cut it with the Tombstone Peek-a-boo die so it turned into a tiny little CANDY COFFIN!!!!!

You have no idea how excited I was about this haha. I am a total craft nerd, I know. But isn’t it SO FUN?!! 🙂 This second one is accented using the “Boo” sentiment from the Halloween Word Tag Dies.

My next project is all about that Batty Set! 😉

I cut out the bat from a piece of black cardstock and turned the cutout into a card, and the bat into a pencil decoration!

The bat needed a little extra pizzazz so I used Wink of Stella to outline the bat and then a black pen to accent the white part of him. I stamped his sweet little batty vampire face and an inside sentiment using a couple of the stamps in the set.

For the pencil decoration I used gold pigment ink to stamp the “batty for you” sentiment on the black bat and added some black and sparkle orange ribbon and an orange clothespin to finish it off.

So funny story… I couldn’t find any Halloween pencils in stores when I was putting this project together so I ended up using a broad chisel tipped Sharpie to color a regular pencil black ha! It worked out surprisingly well too!

Alrighty here are the amazing new products used on these fun projects today:

    I am out of the “treat’s phase as my daughter is turning 20 this month but I absolutely LOVE how you used the cut out of the bat for the card and the bat itself attached to the pencil!!! BRILLIANT!!!! If I had school aged children I would sooooo copy you.
