SA Retiring Stamps Mega Hop- From the Crypt


Hello everybody and welcome to another amazing Stampin' Addicts Blog Hop! There are a lot of fantastic ideas waiting for you on this hop, so buckle up and hop safe :)
We are saying good-bye to lots of stamps this month as Stampin' Up makes room for more NEW stamps in the new catty coming out on July 1st. We want to make sure you all see the goodies that you have this Last Chance to get before they go away!
This is the first stop in the hop, which is a first for me :)
I will be featuring From the Crypt, which I think is an awesome set not just for Halloween. I have used it for birthdays too. I think it would work well for a Monster themed party, and for all those tweens and teens (and let's face it, adults!) who are obsessed with zombies and such! It would work for any project for them!

 These are the cupcake wrappers made with the Perfect Settings die. It was so fun to make these! I sponged all of them with the coordinating ink, or Whisper White Craft ink on the black paper. They all look so spooky! All they need is that fake spiderweb stuff draped over it :) I used Wild Wasabi, Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry, and Basic Black paper, and white gel pen to make stitch marks. And yes, I made a pile of cupcakes to do this photo. My family was just heartbroken about that ;) They were banana, chocolate, and carrot cupcakes by the way :)

Then I took some toothpicks and stuck the Bitty Bat punches to them. Do you know how quick and easy that was?! The skull in stamped in Rich Razzleberry and sponged around with Wild Wasabi, Tangerine Tango, and Basic Gray. The scallop behind it is from the Perfect Pennants die.

I have seen pop-up boxes before and I just HAD to make some pop-up bats! These would be fantastic party favors :)

I don't have any new cards to show you, but here are a few links to some of the other projects/cards that I have made with this set in the past. 
Trick-or-Treat

And for the next hop you will be visiting Sarah's blog where she will featuring Cardinal Christmas! She always has such great ideas!!

If you are going in reverse order, you will be going to Jen Timko's blog to see what she has done with All Holidays. I am SURE you will love it!

If you want to get to the master list of the hop, you will find it here.
