Spooky Haunted House Shadow Box

Its my favorite time of the year when things get spooky. 
Check out this configuration  box I created using stamps by The Blank Page Muse!

Supplies used:
Wooden shadow box house
Acrylic paint
Colored ink pads
Halloween embelleshments

Start off by painting the box with gesso. 
Once dry,  paint the frame purple and the inside green and orange. 

Stamp out the halloween images and colour them with inks. Use different ink pads to create variety.

Stamp the Grunge Background stamp over the frame in black ink.

Begin to add the stamped images to the sections. Fill out the sections with faux cobwebs, faux moss and beads.

Use alphabet beads to spellout spooky words.

Keep adding layers of stamped images and charms to the box. Fill little glass bottles with micro beads and glitter to create potions.

Add gems to eyes to create  a spooky glow.

Spooky bookmarks

Hi Everyone,
Jess here today with a little something to keep your page when your book gets too scary to read at night!

Blank Page Muse Stamps Used:
Ashes of Ex-Lovers Bottle
Mummy Ribs Bottle
Powdered Cobwebs Pot
Halloween Bingo Set

Other Products used:
Staz On ink  Gothic Purple
Archival ink in Jet Black, Potting Soil, and Plum
Distress ink in Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord, Carved Pumpkin, Black Soot, and Pumice Stone
Distress Spray ink in Walnut Stain
Dylusions Spray in Fresh Lime
Sizzix Halloween Sideorder and Halloween Script
Sari Ribbon
Ken Oliver Water-media Bookmarks
Card Stock

Stamp your bookmark with your Ashes of Ex-Lovers BottleMummy Ribs Bottle, and Powdered Cobwebs Pot.  Using your permanent ink, stamp each bottle in a different color and at various angles to create interest.

Once the inks are dry use Distress ink to cover the entire bookmark.

 Layer your bookmark onto various colors of cardstock.
Punch a hole in the top of the bookmark.  Add your die cut skeleton images, words, and your sari ribbon.

For the second bookmark the paper layering will be the same.  Using the permanent ink stamp your Oct. 31 and Spider from the Halloween Bingo Set.  Add in the tiny 31 to fill in the gaps.

  Once your ink is dry create your background.  Cover the entire bookmark using Shaded Lilac Distress Ink.  On your craft mat smoosh on the other two purple shades and spritz with water.  After your have sprayed your water tap your bookmark in the color.  Be sure you only tap it in a couple times.  If you just rub it around you won't get speckles and splats.  Look at your bookmark and see if you like the patterns that are appearing.  If you do, stop and dry your layer.  Once the layer is dry then you can go back and tap into the ink again.  Drying between layers makes a huge difference.

Add on your die cut image. 

Spray your sari ribbon and dry it.  Add the ribbon to the top of the bookmark.
I hope you're inspired to create some on your own.  They are easy and fun to make!
Happy Crafting,

Thanks for coming by!

Hi Again Blank Page Muse Fans!!!
Who's ready for some quick and fun little treat bags????
I've used some tiny plain paper bags and transformed them into treat bags with a couple of Blank Page Muse Stamps and some collage witch's hats!! FUN!!!!
Trick or Treat!!!!!
Stamp the  Pineapple stamp onto white card and color with your favorite coloring medium - Copic Markers used for these samples - and fussy cut - cut off the pineapple "crown"!!!!.
Print the collage witch's hats onto card and fussy cut.

 Adhere the witch's hat to the pineapple and add the wiggle eyes!!

Stamp the "Spooky" word stamp onto Kraft coloured paper and tear out.
Decorate your little paper bags with acrylic paint in colors to match your "pineapple witches" LOL!! Once the paint is dry use your black archival ink pad and stamp with the "crackle" look stamp from the background grunge set - it has a spooky look!!!!
Add the wording, the assembled Halloween Pineapples and a piece of muslin cloth to the paper bags.

Fill your completed bags with treats for the kids!!!

If the Broom Fits...

Hello Girls,
Here is my "Quick Idea" for the Blank Page Muse Blog. I wanted a non-scary & non-creepy Halloween card. The "Witch Silhouette" image was the perfect answer. Spiders are definitely not my favorite thing...but a black gem covered spider gets two thumbs up. My cute little guy dangles from a sparkly thread and can swing freely when the card is handled.  Finally, I finished the card with a quirky sentiment.
Check out all the clever sentiments in fabulous fun fonts available from BPM HERE.

Witch Moon Card

Hello Ladies,
I just love silhouettes and this witch is simply perfect. A mildly creepy moonlit night background was just what the sexy silhouette witch needed. I hope you try your hand at masking your own moonlit sky and don't forget to share it on our Fan Page.

Other Supplies:
black ink pad
clear mounting block
patterned paper
blue ink
ink blending tool
2.5" circle punch
white dome gem
pumpkin embellishment


1.  Stamp the bare tree image twice onto white cardstock with black ink.

2.  Stamp the witch silhouette onto the middle using black ink.

3. Place a 2.5" circle over the top of the witch to mask the area.  Then carefully use an ink applicator tool to blend blue ink to create the sky.  Remove the mask to reveal the moon in the night sky.

4.  Apply yellow chalk to the circular void created by the mask. Shade the moon darker along the edges to create a spherical appearance.

5.  Mount the stamped background with a narrow edge of patterned paper. Tie a faux bow with copper ribbon and attach it around the left edge.

6.  Attach the stamped image to a blue card base. Add a pumpkin embellishment semi-overlapping the lower right corner. Finally, adhere a large white dome gem to the witch's hand.
