Wedding Invitation- Decontructed

I went to a wedding on the weekend and that means a card.  UGH...I wish I had taken a photo of the invitation because I deconstructed the card to make my card.  I thought it would be sentimental. 
 
I had my Jalopy all cut on grunge, inked with black and distressed with Walnut Stain ink.  A coat of Rock Candy crackle and this car looks old and leathery! I cut the wedding invitation (the part with all the info) and mounted the car on it.  Although, I should have jotted down the Church address, time and reception.  Oops!
 
 
I ventured out in a snowstorm to look for wee bells but couldn't find any yet.  So I tied 3 red jingle bells to the rear to simulate wedding bells.
 
 
I stamped my TH Ticket stamp then stamped again in red with this borrowed "MR &MRS" Teresa Collins stamp.

 
Cutting up more of the invitation I used my TH Pocket Envelope die cut for the card holder.  Then with the Cargo Stensil die I cut the #10, the day they were married.  Layer some acetate behind the number and then I cut the fold off.  I used my 1"circle punch for the notch.

 
The inside of the card is stamped with Scrappy Moms Stamps "So Happy for You" from Mini Messages stamp set.
 
 
All opened up!

 
Friday was a very snowy cold day so it was pretty dark out.  Happily the wedding day was sunny with a fresh blanket of snow...but it was cold!

 
Sometimes taking an invitation and rebuilding it into somthing that is yours can be a fun way to gift back.  Especially, if you want to give something that is sentimental.  After all a gift card is just a gift card.  But making it into the couples wedding invitation makes it pretty special to them.

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 …

A BEVY OF MONSTERS

***WARNING...CUTE ALERT***

The Monsters and Creeps are out and around.  So lock your doors to keep safe and sound.
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

Frankenstein
Candy Corn
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…
