Creepy Carved Pumpkin Dwelling

Do you have the Village Dwellings die yet?
Creating a Haunted Town takes dedication and great Halloween colours!  I mentioned I would create a Carved Pumpkin House to go with my other creepy dwellings.  A couple weeks ago I created the Haunted Dwellings to scare you.  I wanted to add to my my creepy creation!
The Creepy Carved Pumpkin Dwelling.

I wanted to play with the Ranger's new Iced Enamel Relique Powder and I love them  They have gorgeous flecks of colour. 

 Note to self...when using the Bats stencils make sure the bats won't be upside down once assembled.  I was too excited to use the enamel I guess ;)


I wanted to experiment so I even used it on the Halloween Alpha parts bat, the roof and icicles from the village winter die.


Even the windows from the winter village die are enameled.


The enameled upside down bats and the enameled green roof look creepy good!


I added the ghosts die coming out from behind the house.  Inked with Hickory Smoke...BOO!  Then I coated them with glossy accents.  I dried with the heat gun but just enough to push the glossy accents around.  This makes them look like they are melting.  GROSS! 


I used some Fall Tinsel Twine like flames bursting out of the house! 


This is my first time using the Iced Enamel Relique Powders so I was experimenting.  I used them all over my Dwelling and the effect is stunning.  Ranger is new to carrying this product and I recommend getting your hands on some!


My Creepy Dwellings are growing!


Thanks for always putting up with my Halloween Creations!  I love Halloween and you all are always so lovely with your support and comments here and on all my social media!

  4. I think I could put up with your Halloween crations 365 days a year, and I believe you would create Halloween 365 days a year! You are SO prolific; I can't keep up with your posts! Just let me say they have all been looked at and drooled over by me, and NO, I don't have my Village Dwellings die yet, thank you very much!

    I would have never realized your bats were upside down on accident...I thought they were just hangin'. Love those oozy ghosts--I may just have to steal that idea, since I love heating things to see how they'll come out.

    Thank you for the heads up on the Emerald Creek Dares Halloween challenge...I'm all signed up and my fingers and eyes are crossed for a successful outcome! Shoot, I'd even like to be one of the team, but me thinks I'm gonna be a bit busy the next couple of days putting the finishing touches on our Halloween yard display, so I'll miss the deadline. I will most certainly be a shopper!

    And I love the way your mind works! Hugs!

    1. LOL...Thank you Sara for your comment! I swear I need to have you do my commenting. I am such a terrible blogger for that ;) I should have thought of saying they were "hanging" upside down. That would be been better ;)

      Thank you for always supporting me.

  5. Fabulous Nicole, love your batty roof (and bats are well known for hanging upside down so I'd say you got them exactly right!) and the ghosties are spooktacular! Love those Relique powders, got to go do some more shopping ;O) Amazing addition to your Creepy Dwellings, thanks so much for sharing it! Deb xo

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
