Some Like It Haunt....

Have you seen those heavenly new papers that The Stamp Attic is now stocking? From the Midnight Dreary line by Moxxie, these new papers are... IMO... LUSH! They are all spooky themed and all have really funny names... Some Like It Haunt, Dead on Arrival, Apothe-scary, Tomb It May Concern & Feelin' Vine.

I have used all of the different papers - which, BTW, are all double sided - and you know sometimes the "other side" of the paper is a bit of a disappointment? Well, not these... they are all F A B! So, I made a little folded pouch for some tags to sit in, using the Tomb It May Concern for the base and then adding a strip from Dead on Arrival across the bottom. I cut bottle from Apothe-scary and popped these onto the base part and then set about making some tags to sit inside the pouchy bit.

They were made by gluing the papers onto some cardstock and then sanding the edges to make them look a bit shabby. I added dyed seam binding to the tops for ribbons and popped some little Brass charms onto jump rings and threaded these through. The decorations come from lots of different Stampotique images, stamped onto cardstock, coloured with Distress Stains - I used a water brush to colour them - and then once these were cut out, they were glued onto the tags and the pouch base. Check out the spider on the front of the book... he is a brand new stamp from Inkadinkado... soooo cute!
