Around the Skellie Neighborhood

Hello crafty friends!  I'm here today to share my latest Halloween-themed Alpha Stamps project. As you know, October's kit is Twilight, and I've used the fantastic Twilight papers found there to create this glimpse into the everyday life of The Skellingtons.  Come take a walk down the lane with me!

I've used linen hinging tape painted black to bind the houses together, and bits and pieces of the twilight papers to bring the houses to life.
Dresden trim of all sorts as well as gold paint highlight the roof lines.
The skeletons are fussy cut and adhered with white adhesive foam.  There are two layers of foam on a few to pop them up more than their companions.

To see all my Alpha Stamps used for the neighborhood, please visit my source list HERE.  Thanks for your visit today!

Alpha Stamps DT: Carnival of Curiosities

Hello crafty friends!  I'm here today to share my newest Alpha Stamps Design Team project made with the very cool tombstone accordion from the September Happy Halloween Kit

Welcome to the carnival.  Enter if you dare.

The entrance of this Carnival of Curiosities is made from a tombstone in the Large Chipboard Tombstone Set.  For now the black tulle ribbon is keeping the gate closed... what happens if you unlock it?

Lo and behold!  The tombstone accordion pulls out to reveal the oh-so-curious characters who ventured out to tonight's carnival. Don't get too close...

I wonder if the wolf at the end of the line has had dinner yet... Poor Mrs. Bat looks alarmed! If the line doesn't move soon some might be fighting like cats and dogs. Oh, and these next two are each looking down at their noses at everyone else... or just each other?

And finally, Mr. and Mrs. Mole really don't know what to think of this above-ground world. Someone should show them the entrance is in the other direction.

This was a fun project!  All of these elements were fussy-cut from Alpha Stamps collage sheets!  You can find all my supplies at this link HERE.  Thanks for you visit today.  Happy Halloween!
