October Damask Divas Blog Hop!

If you came from Crafting with Carolyn, you are in the right place. If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants.

Hey everyone! This month we are doing a blog hop featuring the Moonlight paper pack! I used my new favorite cricut cartridge, the Artiste on every project!  Please feel free to leave a comment or ask any questions! Here are a few things I made...First I decorated some bottles I found at Michael's and filled with them candy.  I used the Magic Potions stamp set:

                                      The Pop-Rocks and gummy worms was my favorite!

Next I made a bag out of vellum cut out from Artiste, to hold more candy!  I used the stamp set
Perfect Fit Halloween and cut outs from the Artiste.  I used our new pigment inks  love them!

Then I made a bookmark using the Artiste,  Creepy Creatures stamp set the Moonlight paper pack and kraft cardstock.  This is for my son who is in 1st grade, reading books at third grade level!

Last, but not least is my favorite project using the Moonlight paper pack and a new technique I came up with. {At least, I haven't heard of anyone else doing yet :) }  I stamped Satin ribbon with our Pigment Inks & Stazon!  I used the Artiste, to cut out everything but the ghost.  Stamp is Creepy Creatures.  I put the ghost on pop-dots and placed it on Posh Journaling Spots, for a quick peek-a-boo tag to hide the sentiment "Boo from the crew"!  I used a bit of Sparkle Flourishes for some bling. 
 I think it turned out super cute!

Mojo Monday 259~The Count~Fangs for the Memories

I wanted to try out another Mojo Monday, I loved this weeks sketch!  I used the CTMH  Moonlight paper pack, white, black and smokey plum cardstock.  The stamps I used were the super cute stamp set Creepy Creatures, for the saying "When I count my blessings, I count you first" is from A Friend Like You (yes, a friendship stamp!), and the spider web I stamped with white pigment ink is from Spellbound Cricut Workshop.  I really can't get enough bling, and the accessories I chose were Bling Assortment, Striped Grosgrain ribbon, the fabulous Shimmer Trim, and one badge button from Haunted Assortment.  I embossed the edges of the badge button with silver embossing powder to make it match the silver in the card.  I colored this cute Count with Copic Sketch markers and Copic Atyou Spica glitter pens.  I used the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut most of the shapes, and Spellbinder Nestabilities, Lacey Labels. This is what I came up with:

This is the Mojo Monday sketch it was based off:
