Spooky Stuff

I've been crafting like a demon lately.  Loads of birthdays, anniversaries, invitations,  Cword cards and a couple of orders on my to-do list, plus a lovely slice of DT stuff too.
I'll get round to posting photos of it all eventually, but today it's Funky Hand DT stuff and a brand new download which has just gone on sale.


It's called Spooky Dookie and Anice has designed these papers in response to requests from customers for some Halloween themed goodies. It's not all specifically Halloween - the ghosties and bat designs would be great for those kiddies who love spooky things, plus there are some fab spotty and stripy designs in shades of purple, orange and lime.
I used one of the bats on the papers to develop a Robo template, then used a couple of the orange papers to make this card
 I covered the front of the card with the orange "bats" paper on the inside then Robo cut bats of various sizes from black card.  Some of the bats I just glued in place, a couple more were suspended from the top of the arch on gold thread.
 
 For th little gift bag I just printed my chosen design directly onto a sheet of thin A4 card, folded  and glued it into shape, added string handles to the top ad the basic bag was done.
 For the embellishment:
*I cut down the arch from the card above slightly to a better shape,
*I cropped and printed the "Things that go Bump" badge from the embellishment sheet to exactly the right size to fit my 5cm circle punch, and matted it onto a circle of black card.
*Used a small piece of the words paper, matted onto black card to make the tag.

Funky Hand papers are easy to resize so if you only want a little bit, or you want the actual design to be smaller than that's what you can make.  For example I resized four designs, including the Words paper to print 4 "complete" but dinky papers on one sheet of A4.   For the square card above I cropped and resized both the papers to fit my card before printing them

Spookytastic Kathy. You can't go wrong with a bit of orange in my book. :)

You are clever with the robo making those bat shapes.
