I started by making the bags, using my new We R Memory Keepers gift bag punch board. It was a bit confusing at first, and I totally messed up the first one, but I got it after that, and it was really easy to use, once I learned the correct pattern. Next I used some of my new Lawn Fawn stamps and coordinating dies. All the rectangles were cut using the Large and Small Stitched rectangle dies from Lawn Fawn. Then I cut out the tree from the Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather die set, and stamped and cut the tombstone and cute little ghost using the Spooktacular Stamp and die set.
To make the background I used my Stamps of Life ink pads in Plum and Cornflower. I just used a blending tool to put the color on, layering it over and over, until I got the look I wanted. I used the same technique to make the black hills, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I was able to make the top darker than the bottom, to make it look like it was further away.
To cut out the hill, I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside die. I think this might be my favorite new die. I have so many ideas of cards to make using this set. I love the stitched detail on all of the dies, I think it really adds a little something to my projects.
I stamped the sentiment, from the Spooktacular Stamp set, using versa mark ink, then heat embossed it using white embossing power. It really pops off the black cardstock, and I love it. I think the kids will really love the gift bags. I filled them with some Halloween treats and glow bracelets, so they can all glow and be safe while they are out trick-or-treating.
