Spooky Labels for a Spooky Duel

Hi, friends, it’s Chark here today to share my October Digi Duel with Arlene. We got to play with the Hero Arts Spooky Labels digital stamps and it was fun! I love Halloween paper products…okay, I’m addicted to them…even though I never make enough projects to use all my paper and embellies and stamps. Luckily, these digi stamps don’t take up room in my craft stash!


Arlene made a festive Halloween card here with the stamp that says October 31. It even comes with its own spider web. Arlene went for fun and colorful and she nailed it…I know some nieces and nephews who would love this one!

I went more for spooky and vintage, using the Trick-or-Treat sentiment. I used black, silver and white to make this spooky. The paper is silver shimmer paper and the bat has some silver foil to make it shine. You can see more shininess in the close-up.



If you want your own Spooky Labels digi set to play with, enter our monthly challenge and maybe you’ll win a free set! Or you can just hop to the store and buy it right now if you’re like me and can’t wait to make your own Halloween projects.

Sugar Tree Hug in a Mug


Halloween Hug in a Mug

Howdy! We are now into fall which brings thoughts of Halloween, leaves turning colors and Thanksgiving. I love to decorate for Halloween and I am still thinking about all the fun coffee cards from last weekend so I combine the two. Here is a Halloween coffee card for you.

Sugar Tree Hug in a Mug

I started out making the mugs which are digital images by Sugartree stamps. I used the mug outlines for these. There are 11 different cups of coffee in this set, some with sayings, some blank and some with designs on them. I used Paint 3D and sized the mugs. I used words from the Hero Arts Spooky Labels digital kit and the little pumpkin from the Hero Arts Haunted digital kit to decorate the mugs. I printed the images on Neenah paper colored them using Copic pens. I cut them out by hand.

The panel right behind the mugs was fun to create. I used the Hero Arts Wood Floor bold print stamp to create the pattern in orange, purple and green inks. I used my Misti and stamped horizontal with the first color. I turned the paper so that the next stamp ended up vertical with the second color of ink. I turned the paper one more time for the third color for a diagonal. I like the pattern it made and it would work for many different situations by just using different ink colors.

The orange and purple layers are patterned paper from my stash. The green background paper is from my stash. I rounded the corners and cut the shapes using a Bo Bunny die.

The middle coffee cup is glued flat on the pattern panel. The other two mugs are raised with Glue Dots.
