I absolutely adore this image. During this time, ghouls find a way to add a spooky flair t their holiday dishes and skeleton gingerbread cookies have been all the rage!
To set the scene, I created a plate using teo different of circle dies to trace on my paper. I wanted the background to look like a placemat. For that I used this adorable candycane imagen frm a Clear Snap stamp set. Everything was colored using my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday!
Today I have a fun project to share with all of you. I had found some ArtC nesting boxes in a local craft store, that I thought would be perfect for creating a halloween shadowbox!
Using a 2 inch punch, I punched out 5 circles (5 in black, 5 in light orange and 5 in a darker orange) , folded each circle in half, and adhered each same colored circles end to end to create mini paper pumpkins. I love a subtle 3D effect, and these are perfect for decor and party favors.
For my larger box , I used one of the apes from the Classic Halloween Paper Pack to create a simple background. I loved the little trick or treaters found in the halloween sticker pack , so I adhered then to some cardstock to make them extra sturdy and used them to add dimensions to my piece.
I added a few glitter stickers I had in my stash, glued both boxes together and my decor piece is done!
I hope this project inspires you to create something fun today!

Every month, OddBall hosts a new blog challenge with a specific theme. This month it was all about Naughty Gnomes. For my project, I decided to create a fun, whimsical halloween decor. I had a coffin shaped shadow box , with a thin enough wood that I as able to pierce some hole in the back of it. I printed my main image #432 Little Whimsical Toadstool House #2 on vellum paper and colored it using my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers (making sure I colored the back of the image). Inused the coffin to trace the shape on my vellum paper , cut the shape and then glued it to the front of my coffin shadow box. Added some sequins trim and fun halloween embellishments and my main design is done!
I love the #461 Cute Gnomes Rolling With My Gnomies digital stamp set! The cute faces and individual personalities , paired with a fun sentiment, makes for an extra adorable craft project. I wanted everything to be cohesive, and printed the gnomes on vellum paper and followed the same steps as the coffin shadow box, only this time using a small 5x5 embroidery hoop. Once both my projects were finished, i was able to add some pretty halloween lights to the back of the coffin and now i have a fun light up piece!
I had so much fun creating these pieces , and I hope it inspires you to create something today!
