My Pink Stamper Fun and Spooky Challenge

Hi everyone!  Today, My Pink Stamper is having a Fun and Spooky Challenge.  Make sure to visit her blog to check out the challenge and the rest of the Design Team's projects :-)

I made a card and decorated a candle.  It's been really fun to make some home decor items lately.  I won't be able to burn this candle, but I usually don't anyway.

Here are the details for the card:
  • Ghost from Paper Doll Dress Up cut at 3 3/4 inches
  • My Pink Stamper Spooky Puns stamp
  • Recollections Halloween stack
  • Martha Stewart web punch
  • orange ribbon
  • iRock gems (on the ribbon)
  • black pen for stitching
I punched the card base and a separate black strip to make the layers.  Also, I put a black strip on the inside of the card behind the web.

And here are the details for the candle:
  • 3 ghosts from Paper Doll Dress Up cut at 2 3/4 inches
  • I just had the candle on my shelf
  • My Pink Stamper Spooky Puns stamp
  • Recollections paper that matches the card
  • Orange ribbon
  • i Rock gems
  • black pen for stitching
I wrapped the paper around the candle and just used my ATG to hold.  I also used the ATG on the ribbon as well.  Then, very carefully, I adhered the gems with the iRock.  You do need to be careful, if you hold it too long the candle will melt.  Then I just put adhesive down the middle of the ghosts and placed them around the candle. I stamped the Boo in black ink and stamped in on paper, then the ghosts, so it wouldn't be too dark.

I hope you enjoyed--this was fun to make!!  Don't forget to visit My Pink Stamper.
