Stampin' Addicts 2016 Stampin Up! Fall Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts 2016 Stampin Up! Fall Holiday Blog Hop!

I hope you'll enjoy our little hop through our own personal favorites in the new Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  Should you get lost or want to chat about the hop, here is a link to the chat thread on the Stampin' Addicts website: Chat Thread

If you are hopping in order, you've arrived after seeing Twila's eerily cute designs with the Spooky Fun stamp set on her Stamp A Little Longer Blog.

For my first card, I used the Vampire from the Cookie Cutter Halloween set with the adorable Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper. I also use the Halloween Night Orange and Black Baker's Twine for the Bow and the Halloween Night Enamel Dots at the top left.

The next card is floss or twine style spinner. I continued to show the nice variety that the Halloween Night Designer Series paper has in it. The spinning center has 3 sides: Dracula, Mummy and Skeleton suit Trick or Treaters. 

I've seen a couple of these little Dracula coffins online by Martha Inchley and Jana Weaver, but neither had detailed instructions.  I'm not sure I did them right, but trimming the depth of the house down and adding a 1/2 inch wide band of cardstock around it worked fairly well.  I love being able to put a Reeses' pumpkin under Dracula inside them.

Your best bet for instructions is to continue to Betty's blog here on the hop. Her coffins are awesome!!

Finally I have the Mojo Monday sketch for this week, MOJO463 . I used the scarecrow for a happy fall card and more of the Halloween Night DSP.

Now, it is time to continue to Sara's Lily's Ink Pad Blog for her creepy-cool designs with the Jar of Haunts Set.
