Bugs and Hisses / Spider Web Die sneak peeks!

Today is one of my favorite TSG Blog Hop Challenge days EVER!! Not only because we are showing off a fabulous new Halloween stamp set illustrated by Torico but we are also debuting the first of There She Goes' exclusive dies!!! That's right! TSG will now be selling dies to use along with your favorite stamp sets :)
This fun silhouette Halloween themed stamp set is so much fun to play with! Not only can you create fabulous cards and projects with it by itself but it was also designed to coordinate perfectly with last year's Hauntingly Delightful* stamp set!! Have you seen the gorgeous things that the other Trendsetters have created with this set so far?!

Bugs & Hisses is a 6x8 sized stamp set that includes 35 images and will sell for $24

Spider Web Die is .625 in tall and 6 in wide and will sell for $10

The first die to be added to the TSG product line was created to be used along with the new Bugs & Hisses stamp set but it can be used for soooooo much more! I used it on the top of my sneak peek project so you can see what it looks like :)

I don't know why but lately I have been really wanting to make a bookmark. Could it possibly be because I was becoming a bit tired of using some random scrap of paper that I happen to find while I was reading? Yeah, that probably had something to do with it ;)

When Corinna was came down for a visit awhile ago, we went to the Michael's in my town where I picked up this super cute set of paper mache coffins. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do with them at the time but when I decided that I was going to make bookmarks for today's project, I knew that this coffin would be the perfect container for them!

It took awhile to complete this project since all of the different pieces of designer paper were inked, stitched and distressed before being adhered to the sides of the box. (And instead of painting the box before hand, I just took a black Sharpie marker and colored around all of the edges before I adhered the paper)

I also decorated the tissue paper I put inside the box by distressing it first with an ink pad and then stamping the bats and spiders in different sizes in black ink.

Here is a close up of the actual bookmarks, These give you an idea of just a few different scenes that can be created using this stamp set. Imagine if you were to pair it up with Hauntingly Delightful*! And aren't those ribbon toppers perfect? It is actually this cool new Halloween ribbon that Ribbon Carousel is carrying!

Thanks for stopping by today, make sure you check out all of the other Trendsetter's blogs to see what they created using these two new products!!!

*Hauntingly Delightful is currently out of stock but I am expecting it to be in either Thursday or Friday!
