Welcome to Day 4 of Papertrey Ink's August release countdown. Today is all about Halloween! We have some spooky, but absolutely adorable goodies to introduce today: Tiny Town: Spookville by Betsy Veldman, another look at yesterday's Autumn Pumpkins by Heather Nichols, only this time with some added Pumpkin Expressions, and, finally, Shaped Sayings: Halloween by Maile Belles.
All of the new products will be available at 10 pm ET on August 15 in the Papertrey Ink store.
First up is Maile's Shaped Sayings: Halloween. Like the previous Shaped Sayings, the sentiment is in that loose circle shape, but with this set, Maile has also added some additional shapes -- a moon, stars, and bats. It's one of those die sets that truly makes for some quick, easy projects.
My tags all begin with a Tag Sale: Quilted die-cut, topped with some torn and scored vellum. Next I added the die-cut sentiment, then embellished with bats and stars. Those bats are the cutest!
Dies: Shaped Sayings: Halloween, Tag Sale: Quilted
Paper: Green Parakeet, Amethyst Allure, Canyon Clay, True Black, White, Silver Luxe Adhesive Sheets, and vellum
Other: wood veneer stars, True Black and Orange Zest baker's twine, Plum Pudding ribbon, white mini clothespins
Here's a fun card idea: Halloween wishes from the whole pumpkin family! The pumpkins were done with Autumn Pumpkins and Pumpkin Expressions.
I began by ink blending a dramatic sky using green and blue inks. I added a tree and fence, both from Tiny Town: Spooky Yard.
Then I layered the five pumpkins in a grouping to finish the scene.
"Halloween" is from the Pumpkin Expressions set. There is a "happy" included in Pumpkin Expressions, but mine went AWOL on my craft table yesterday, so I borrowed this "happy" from another set. "From all of us" is a sentiment in the Keep It Simple: From All Of Us set.
Stamps: Autumn Pumpkins, Pumpkin Expressions, Keep It Simple: From All Of Us

Ink: Limeade Ice, Simply Chartreuse, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Blueberry Sky, Enchanted Evening, Royal Velvet

And last is the oh-so-adorable Tiny Town: Spookville. I seriously do not know how Betsy comes up with these ideas! The detail dies in this one are amazing!
I constructed my little house with a detached roof so that the box could be opened and closed and filled with treats. I then attached the house to a wooden door hanger and added the word "boo" to turn this into one of those "you've been booed" gifts. These would be cute to hang on the teachers' doors for Halloween. Or kids rooms, too! A small bag of candy, a stack of Ghirardelli squares, a handful of truffles or other bite-size candy, a good-size handful or two of candy corn would all fit nicely.
I cut one of the roof top die-cuts in half and adhered to either side of the box's roof, just for some added color.
