12 Tags of Christmas; #5

Back on track with my tags and I have caught right back up.  So I will be posting the tags I have caught up on.  Today is tag #5 and this one is a cool technique!

Lucky for my my girl had the stamp and my other GF had the inks to make this one red.  I only have 5 alcohol inks and 2 of them are the silver and gold.  Here's what I have learned.  I also did an 2nd tag with the silver and gold and it is to thick to rub off to expose the stamp.  All it did was move it around.  Not that you can't do it.  The stamp just shows through very light.


I was all done making the tag when I found a set of these wreaths at Walmart.  They are metal ornaments meant to decortate wee trees.  I sanded it down a bit to take out some if the shiny.  The accents on this one were gold so I stickled over with red.

For that main wreath I was going to use my snowflake punch or a Cricut cut to create the wreath.  But I couldn't get out of my mind to use one of my chipboard gears.  I started by distressing with inks and quickly decided to use my green embossing powder to make it look brighter.  I picked up these holiday earings (with jingles) form the $1 Store and glued it down, then tied and inked the red bow.

Be sure when rubbing the ink from the stamped tag to push with your finger tip.  Try to avoid rubbing as you will smudge your stamps letters.  If you look at the top of my tag you will see where I figured that out.  By the time I got to the end of the tag I got it right.


I wasn't to sure how I would like this tag.  But it really turned out pretty and it was a fun technique to learn!  I will for sure be trying this one again.

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Apothecary Curiosities Coffin

Creepy coffin, I love this one!  I saw these little wooden coffins at the $1 Store and had to get one.  I ended up making this for a class and everyone loved making them.  Halloween is the best!  All the creepy stuff I get away with creating! I picked up these great skeletons at Michaels on a string of garland...6 per rope.  With a little force he fits! I made a template of the coffin and cut Tim Holtz Laboratorie paper to fir in the back. I accidentally broke my skeleton's arm.  Oops!  So, I glued his arm holding the glitter pumpkin.  SAVE! I picked up these skulls on a bracelet for $1.  Layering the Curiosities Coffin is key!  You want to look at the layers, like mesh, pen nib and a spider! I added the "shelves" using popsicle sticks cut to size.  This way it has a cabinet feel. The Apothecary Remnant Rubs are so perfect of the glass bottles full of eyes! Adding a little Spanish Moss makes it all creepy. I LOVE HIM! After the sprayed coffins were dry I sanded them to …

If you are looking for a great Halloween card that is UNDER 10 MINUTES to build this is it.  I made a variety of these to give you different ideas of creeps you can make.  From start to finish these Halloween cards are a breeze and would be perfect for a class, office and for some friends.  I made these in between making projects...mostly waiting for things to dry!  The googlie eyes are different sizes make them so cute. 
All the cards are stamped with Scrappy Moms Stamps Halloween set Bewitched! Mummy

Vampire, I love this one!  I didn't distress the white glitter paper.  Then added this red glitter glue to the fangs.
Ghost, I posted this the other day HERE
All my fun cards together
I cut the cards to 5x5.  Then I cut a 4 3/3x 4 3/4 black for the black behind the googlie eyes.  Pick your coloured carstock and rip.  I distressed the torn edges a bit then…
