Till Death Do Us Part

A Wedding card...not too creepy?  OK maybe a little.  I went to my nieces wedding this past weekend.  It was a gorgeous day for it.  Very unlike Calgary weather.  It's fall and close to Halloween so I thought this would be a fun card to create. 
 
Behind the couple I used texture paste with the Halloween Stencil and my new Distress Spray Stains.

 
The Orante Frame die is fabulous for haunting out my card.  It can be used for any occasion but it always looks amazing for Halloween.   I covered it with black soot distress glitter.
 
 
I used a Found Relative wedding card for this...fitting.  I used my skeleton head rub for rubbing over the grooms head. 

 
I crackled the card.  I was surprised that the card peeled and I love it.  Makes it creepier.
 
 
I added a black tattered pinecone flower. 

 
The tattered pinecone flower pops over the layered leaf and greens.

 
I added a mini clip on the inside of the card.  Here I attached some cash for the bride and groom.  Our Canadian money is coloured so the $100 brown bill was a perfect colour for the card.

 
Don't you just love this font!  I cut the sentiments using the Spooktacular Decorative Strip and glued.  I made my own background paper using a stamp from the Random Quotes set. 
 
 
Thanks for checking out my wedding card.  I sure hope the couple saw the humor in it!  Really, it could have gone either way!

  3. Nicole, I love how you think! I would be happy to receive a wedding card like this, but that's just me! Awesome details on this! I love the rub on idea, and I'm sure it's there for a good reason! I can't believe the peeling happened, but you made the most of it! Looks intentional! Great card and an excellent use of the dies!

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…

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

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 …
