Papertrey Ink August Release // Scared Silly + Grins & Ghouls

Welcome to Papertrey Ink’s August New Release! Today we are all about the Halloween goodness! I have so much fun making little goodies for Halloween.

Our family just loves getting dressed up and spending time with friends each year. I always get to volunteer in my kid’s class parties and they loveeeeee trick or treating on the 31st! Today I have 2 fun little party favors to show you using brand new crafty goodies, as well as a spooky card πŸ˜‰

First up is this classy krafty pillow box. You can stuff it with candy, trinkets, or anything small enough! This is actually one of my favorite previously released box dies. I use this sucker all. the. time.

I stamped the entire box with the “trick or treat” from the new A Bit More: Grins & Ghouls… the size of this sentiment is the BEST. I also stamped the ghost in Soft Stone as another subtle touch.

I kept the colors neutral for this project and loved pairing a couple of the You Deserve Flowers Scalloped Tags in Kraft an Black with a Bitty Big Soft Stone ghost.

This party favor was more geared toward kiddos. I used a bright contrast of celebratory colors in the Green Parakeet Cable Box, Amethyst Allure little monster, and Orange Zest accents.

I used the fun little legs from the monsters to make a creepy border around the outside of the box. I loved how it turned out! And these little monster dudes are so dang cute!! I’m obsessed.

For the tag I used the previously released Folded Tag Dies with the Bitty Big True Black.

And my last project is this adorably fun card! Grins & Ghouls is such a fun set and the sentiments come in the cutest font!

I used eyelets at the top of the card to attach some twine and ribbon and accented the card with both white and black paint splatters. The card base is Smokey Shadow which was the perfect contrast to the orange pumpkin in the center.

by Stephanie Gold for Papertrey Ink August 2017 Wicked Elixir

I really wanted a clean and simple card using this set that just showcased the incredible images. I am in love with the little labels too!!! How cute are they?! My unique twine wrap (LOL) was inspired by a sort of mummy wrap/caution tape sort of thing… not sure what I was going for exactly but I really LOVE how it turned out!!! Sometimes it pays to just give things a go! πŸ™‚

I used glossy accents all over this Spiderweb to make it have a thick, glossy, fun texture. The circle pattern at the top is created with the Batty Bundle stamp set.

The green cable box is accented with a Halloween Word Tag Die and a spider from the Spiderweb Greetings Die Set. It also uses a piece of pattern paper from the Super Kids Paper Pack which was die cut with a Wonky Rectangle Die.

My next project is all about that Batty Set! πŸ˜‰

by Stephanie Gold for Lil Inker Designs Batty Hugger Bundle Bat Halloween Card Golden Simplicity #cardmaking #lilinker #goldensimplicity #stephaniegold

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!

by Stephanie Gold for Lil Inker Designs Batty Hugger Bundle Bat Halloween Card Golden Simplicity #cardmaking #lilinker #goldensimplicity #stephaniegold

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.

by Stephanie Gold for Lil Inker Designs Batty Hugger Bundle Bat Halloween Card Golden Simplicity #cardmaking #lilinker #goldensimplicity #stephaniegold

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.

by Stephanie Gold for Lil Inker Designs Batty Hugger Bundle Bat Halloween Card Golden Simplicity #cardmaking #lilinker #goldensimplicity #stephaniegold

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:
