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

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…
