September's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Thriller

Welcome to Close To My Heart's September's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. If you are joining me from Doreen's website, then you are in the right place. If you are just joining in, just follow the link at the bottom to continue forward and it will loop around.

I love, love, love September's Stamp of the Month set. It is that perfect mix of cute and spooky that I like for Halloween. Plus, I really like ALL the stamps in this set and had quite a hard time deciding which to play with first. But this guy stole my heart and I just couldn't resist him.

And since we are dealing with Halloween, I just had to make a little goodie holder. You can attach a fun size candy to the inside of the base or tape in a small bag of your favorite treats. These are so easy to make. I cut my black cardstock to 12" x 6" and then scored it down the 12" section once at 5" and then once at 7" and folded the two flaps up. I wanted to give it a tombstone look, so I just trimmed the two flaps where they meet and stuck two brads through to hold them closed. I thought about using ribbon but the brads where just too much fun.

For information on how you can get this stamp set for free, click on the picture of the whole stamp set in the left column.
