UnBOOlievable Blog Hop!

Today I come to you from the UnBOOlievable Blog Hop Crew!!!  That's right, it's almost Halloween and we are here to show you some "unBOOlievable" Halloween projects!  This will be a 2-day hop so don't forget to stop by tomorrow too!!

This hop begins at Lisa's blog at HoneyBearz Designs so be sure to start there first.  If you came here from Lori's blog at Scrappin' My Stress Away, then you're in the right place!

Sooooo, here's my first project for you:

I had SO much fun making this.  I have been selling them for Halloween and I think I'm going to also give them as gifts to some friends as well.  I saw one in our Close to My Heart Idea Book that was made for a 50th birthday party and thought it would be cute for Halloween.

The coffin was cut using the Artiste Cricut cartridge from Close to My Heart at 5 1/2" using Black cardstock.  The headstone was also cut using the Artiste and was cut at 3 1/4".  I used a retired stamp set with a cobweb on it to stamp the headstone which was cut using Sunset cardstock and inked with Sunset ink.  The sentiment "Death by Chocolate" came from a prior Stamp of the Month called "A Chocolate Affair".  Finally, I used a paper pack called "Spellbound" for the wrappers on the miniature Hershey candies.  That paper pack is also ... retired.  The wrappers were cut at 1 1/2" x 2 3/4".
