Halloween Twinchies

Hello!  Julie here today with a little post for you.  I love Fall and all the holidays that happen in this great season.  Halloween is one of the most fun times of year to craft for.  I'd like to share a few Halloween twinchies I made with you today.

I used some new stamps from Stampendous and Prickley Pear that I recently picked up.  I couldn't resist the pumpkin and that creepy cemetery scene. 

For the twinchie on the left I started with a black cardstock base.  I cut a few small white strips of paper and inked here and there with black ink.  I then adhered them haphazzardly to the black base.  Once satisfied with the arrangement, I adhered a second black cardstock twinchie to the back of the first to cover up my small strips of white paper.  I took my pumpkin image (a cling stamp) and stamped with Versa Mark ink on white cardstock.  I sprinkled black embossing powder on the Versa Mark stamped image and used my heat gun to set the powder.  Once cooled, I used my Copic markers to color the pumpkin.  Then I used Diamond Stickles on the pumpkin's bandages.  Once the Stickles dried, I used foam tape to pop the image up on the twinchie. 

For the twinchie on the right, I used my embossing powder once again on this Prickley Pear stamp creepy cemetery scene.  I just loved how this scene screamed Halloween!!  Once the embossed image was cooled, I put the image on foam tape and mounted that on my cardstock!

I made these twinchies for a swap and I can't wait to send them out!  Hope you enjoy creating for Halloween today!
