Hop On Over Here, My Friend!

Hi, I'm Chark and welcome to my stop on the Hero Arts and a2z Scrapbooking Digital Blog Hop! You should be arriving from the talented Miss Chitra's blog. You can find the hop order below. 

Although I'm not an exclusive digi creator, mostly because I super enjoy playing with the supplies, I do love having the option of sizing stamps and layering them. And digital stamps are perfect for big projects, like making party favors, classroom treats or a lot of cards. 



Today I've used the Hero Arts Digital stamp sets called Astral and Spooky Labels to make Halloween favors. 


For the treat bags, I got the little bags from Michael's and I printed the starry sky from Astral Digital Stamps on my black and white printer. My sky is now a little spookier (although the blue is very pretty when I use my color printer). I combined two of the digi stamps from Spooky Labels to make the labels and added Diamond Stickles to my bats and randomly to the sky. 


For the glamorous favors, I used the Spooky Labels, black lace seam binding, purple sequin ribbon from Jo Ann Fabrics, diamond gems from Hero Arts, black grosgrain and white eyelash ribbons, and skull washi from Stampin' Up and dotted washi from Recollections.


The spider tops are from dollar store spider rings, with the HA diamond gems added with Glue Dots to their backs. I used Glue Dots to secure the lace as well. The font I used to put names on the spider labels is called Black Adder. I filled them with silver Hershey Kisses so they still looked elegant, but any candy will work.

  19. I like you goodie tubes! On the treat bag, I wonder what they'd look like with a little Wild honey distress ink blended into the labels. I think I'd like bringing a little color in the tie back the bag. I'll have to try it.
