New Halloween Goodies, Tombstone ATC Samples, + an ART SWAP!


Hi everyone! I don't even know where to start! Oh my Halloween! We have TONS of NEW Halloween goodies and I'm so excited about them. I loooovee Halloween and couldn't wait to get an early start! You can check out all the new goodies HERE and I'll show you just a few of my favorites. Obviously, the New Haunted Door Shrine Kit is #1!


These totally adorable Potion Bottles even come with a Mini Sticker Label sheet sized to fit! Available with our without charm holes!


I'm pretty much obsessed with anything that relates to skeletons, so for me these Rib Cages are to die for. (pun intended. ha!)


And if you like our Glasses and Mustaches you will LOVE these Masquerade Masks! You collage guys and gals will be ready for the Halloween Ball! I think I love these most!


And what is a witch without a wand! These cute Spider and Star Witch Wands were inspired by my favorite new Halloween stencils below. I was looking at them and thought, if I just turned them around... poof! Wands!


We have 17 brand new Halloween Stencils and these spiders pull at my heart strings!


And some Falling Stars? Yes please! The spiders and stars can also be flipped around to have them coming up from the bottom of your pages too!


And again, skeleton obsession! After making the cut outs I knew I had to have stencils too!


Does anything say Halloween more than a dripping blood border? What's great about this stencil is that you can also use it year round. Color the border hot pink, green, blue, etc. and you now have dripping paint! And the drips and splatters can be added where you please.


Time to play! Come see what I made... I started with our Masonite Gothic Tombstone ATC Bases and some Antique Ledger Paper.


Using a sponge brush, I quickly swiped some orange acrylic paint across.


Then I tore off some strips of ledger paper and attached them with Mod Podge and my sponge brush.


After adding a bit more paint over the paper (I added some copper paint too), I stenciled away using our new stencils: Small Diamond Background, Small Spider Border, and Spider Web and Corners. I just love the way the backgrounds turned out! Especially the web (which was my least favorite when I was designing them. Funny how that works!).


All of the images came from the Edgar Allen Poe Collage Sheet and Beautiful Marie Collage Sheet. Finally, I embellished using our new Cut-Outs including Masquerade Masks, Extra Small Bat Wings, Gothic Fences, Witch Wands, Rib Cages, Skulls and Crossbones, and Potion Bottles. Lastly I added bits of paint here and there and inked the edges. So easy and FUN!

I hope these ATCs inspired you because we are hosting a Tombstone ATC ART SWAP. You can get the details HERE!

And don't forget to check out our main Halloween category + our Coffee Break Design Cut-Outs Halloween category. We had some great releases last year that are still awesome to play with! I can't wait to see what you come up with. Happy Halloween!!!
