A Little Pumpkin Boo

I am going a little Old School on this one with the Mini Scary Jack O Lantern face.  I wanted to use a couple dies I own and haven't used yet... the Jack face and Petal Drop.  True...it happens!
I was at the $1 Store the other day and found these Styrofoam pumpkins and decided I could make something with that.  Then there was one of those wee top hats...I could make something with that.

I thought wrapping the pumpkin using my scrap Graphic 45 Rare Oddities paper would be easy.  Perhaps not..it's thick paper.


I added this skull charm from Emerald Creek Craft to the small Bow Tied die.  A perfect spot on the top hat.


I snapped my skeleton into place and have him sitting terrified!  I've shipped these little guys to a couple of my blogger buddies across the world!  


I just got my Ghost die...BOO!  I added clear rock candy glitter and edged with the new carved pumpkin.  


I mounted the pumpkin on Eileen Hull Box Cookie  and stamped with the new Stampers Anonymous Ledgerscript.  Then I edged with carved pumpkin distress ink.  Added the BOO and some spiders.


There was a small piece of this black tulle that came with the top hat.  Instead of chucking it I used it behind the ghosts.


This is the perfect addition to my Pumpkin Theme!


Check out my haunt.  See if you can find the projects I have created!  Yes, I made the tombstones too!





Happy Haunting!

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

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…
