Day 4 Stamp Release Party! Rattle Dem Bones Coffin

Here we are at day 4 of the Stamp Release Party for My Craft Spot, and I'm having so much fun with these Halloween projects! Today we are sharing a sneak peek of the "Ghostly Greetings" stamp set, you will have so much fun creating Halloween cards and project using this set.

For my project I loved the phrase "Rattle dem bones" and when I saw it I had a creative idea in mind of a project that I wanted to make... I made a scary coffin, of course.
The coffin is cut from the Happy Hauntings cricut cartridge pg. 72, I used black Bazzill textured paper, then gently rubbed just the edge of a white ink pad over the paper before putting the coffin box together.
After I stamped the phrase, I wrinkled and tore the paper the inked the edges with a black ink pad.
I used tiny Prima Roses to make a bouquet and added leaves that I gently rubbed black ink on, I also added some thin twine that unraveled.
I used the Deep Plum crinkle ribbon (purchased from My Craft Spot) and tore and shredded it to give it a worn our look.
My little stack of bones were cut from the skeleton on the Happy Hauntings cricut cartridge pg. 29. I only used three bones and cut each three times and glued them together to make them thicker, then gently sponged black ink on the edges and wrapped all three bones using the twine.
The bats are from the Paper Doll Dress Up cricut cartridge pg. 53. I omitted the face and lines on the wings using my gypsy machine, then just added dots for the eyes using my white gel pen. I also gently rubbed the edges of the bats with a white ink pad.
Below is the inside of the coffin, I never go over board with the "scary" side of Halloween, so I made it cute and fun. This skeleton is from Paper Doll Dress Up cricut cartridge pg. 53.
 I used my black mini gel pen in my cricut machine to trace the skeleton, then cut out the image using the machine as well. I put the skeleton on a homemade wobble spring so he wiggles a bit.
The Happy Halloween! phrase is from the same "Ghostly Greetings" stamp set.
