Boo To You Frame Decor

Today is my first time participating in the Home Decor SU Style Blog Hop. I used the Boo to You stamp set, Word Wishes Dies, and Monster Bash Designer Series Paper to create this greeting for my foyer table.  I just love the Boo to You stamp set’s three adorable little monsters. Now I realize that “adorable monsters” might seem like an oxymoron, but these guys really are cute.

Here’s what I made:

Boo to You Everything Festive Coffin Treat Box

For today’s project, I used the Everything Festive and Boo to You stamp sets to decorate a Coffin Box. The Everything Festive stamp set has sentiments for several different holidays and occasions, and the Boo to You stamp set has three adorable little monsters. I used Stampin’ Blends Markers to color the little zombie guy, and I used a couple of the Assorted Googly Eyes to really make him pop!

Here are the stamp sets:

Spooktacular Coffin Treat Box

Today’s project is a fun little treat box shaped like a coffin. Stampin’ Up!’s new Coffin Boxes come pre-cut and scored, so you only have to glue the corners to assemble them. There’s a window in the coffin lid so you can see its occupant, a vampire from the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper (DSP.) The coffin is lined with more of the DSP, and the spiders on top are cut from a Black Foil Sheet using the Wicked Dies.

Assembled the box:

  • 2 Red Rhinestones applied onto each spider, to resemble a Black Widow’s hourglass pattern (Yes, I know it’s actually on the bottom of a real spider and not up on its back, but I took a little artistic license.)
