Happy Fright Night! Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #36

This week's challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog is 3-D Objects - Candles.

I found this candle that I had laying around and since it had this crackle effect on it, I thought that it was perfect for a Halloween candle.

Happy Fright Night!!!

I pulled out the Cricut Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge and cut the ghost and the hairy purple monster at 2 1/2 inches. I used black embossing powder to emboss the ghost with the Peachy Keen Cornies Assortment in 5/8" and the purple monster with the Peachy Keen Monster Mash Face Assortment in 3/4".

The sentiment is from Pink By Design's A Haunting We Will Go stamp set inked in Memento Grape Jelly.

I stamped the sentiment inside of a Fiskars Halloween stamp set I had and then cut it out with my Honey Bee Scissors. I attached the sentiment  to the candle with two mini purple star brads and added a larger one  on top in the middle of the ribbon.

I cut a piece of black cardstock and used my Martha Stewart Fence Boarder punch and wrapped it around the base of the candle.

I just love this cute little pumpkin, I just got my order in the mail the other day and couldn't wait to use them. I cut two pumpkins from the CottageCutz Pumpkin Trio Die set with matching Peachy Keen Faces and adhered one to the front and one to the back.

Isn't he just so cute?!?  Turns out that the piece I cut for my fence wasn't long enough for this chunky candle so the little pumpkin came to the rescue and brought together my fence boarder along with some large Zots Dots.

You should head on over to Challenge #36 and take a peek at what everyone came up with.
