Ghosts in the Graveyard

Ghosts in the Graveyard

Happy Halloween! Welcome to my day of the Spellbinders and Tattered Angels Blog Hop! This project started with my idea to make little ghosts. I used my favorite Brownie Pop Mold from Wilton. I over-filled each spot with brownie dough, so that they would overflow and create a little ghost shape. Once they cooled, I melted a can of white frosting. Layers of the frosting were poured over the brownie, until I got the coverage I wanted. It took almost 4 coats and I let each coat set up a bit before applying the next. The goo-goo eye candies are from Target, in the Halloween section. Oh, and they taste good too. :)

CU Graveyard

My little ghost treats needed a place to play and a box base seemed like the best place to start. The little tombstones in the back were cut using the Labels 8 shape. I used my Scor Pal to score the bottom, about 1/2”, and then adhered that to the box base. Glimmer Mist was spritzed on each grave for a spooky shimmer.

CU Fence

The fence was created with the Borderabilities, Renaissance Hearts. I die cut strips of cardstock and adhered them to the very top of the box edges. The entire box was sprayed with Cinder Glimmer Mist. The effect is amazing. It does take some time to dry, so I set the box aside and went to work on the rest of the details.

CU Pumpkins

The pumpkins were die cut and then embossed with a Floral and Stone Impressabilities. I sprayed each pumpkin with Golden Terracotta Glimmer Mist. The twine was colored with a Copic to match. The grass was created by embossing Core’dinations Black Magic cardstock and then snipping the ends.

This is too cute. I love how you combined "normal" elements such as the Renaissance heart to make your "spooky" creation.

And those ghosts look soooooo yummy!
