Glue Dots® and Stampendous Halloween Blog Hop!


I love fall. The crisp cool air, changing of the leaves and Halloween!

Today I have made two projects for you!

I was sent this Awesome set of stamps! Also some Glitter!

Thank you so much Stampendous!

Skeleton Style Perfectly Clear Stamps

The first thing I thought of was......Lucy from Charlie Brown!

Remember this?


So off to work I went! 

I had a circle canvas board, I painted the background to look like the sun had set and it was orangy-yellow and it set the mood for the rest of the plan! (Sorry I lost the pictures for this step) OOPS!

I stamped out some Skeletons and cut them out! I also cut out quite a few bats!

 I had to draw out a desk for him to sit at! I wanted it to be a rickety desk, so I made it look as if it were made of pallets! This was a fun challenge for me! I cut it out and roughed it up a bit with sand paper.

Kinda cute! (I think)

Here you can see I added mini Glue Dots® to adhere the desk down onto the canvas.

 I started to build my canvas up. I stamped spiders and bats.

I adhered the bats on the already stamped bats to give it depth! Some I adhered two and some three, this gives the appearance of wings flapping! I used Glue Dots® Mini for this.

 Here is the finished piece once everything was added!

 So much fun!

 Next I had to make a card with one of the cute hats!
Again stamped and cut out the skeleton and a hat, using the same stamp set! The background stamp is also a Stampendous stamp by Andy Skinner!
I glittered the edges of the paper and the hat!
 Time to use those handy dandy Glue Dots®!
Who knew a spider could be so cute? 

 Finished card! I love it! I hope you do too!

 Thanks for stopping by and make sure you stop at all the blogs and see what other spooky fun you can find!
