Chausten

Got Candy?  Chausten wants to know.  Why are we compelled to name these Hipsters?

I have to be honest... I am not a huge fan of the Hipster stamps.   With that said I do like Goat and the monkey.  Luckily my crafty bestie Julia over at Paradise Lost bought these last week and let me do some stamping.  I just wanted to play and keep it simple and fun.  Easter is just around the corner and I had an idea.


I stamped Chausten onto the new Distress Mixed Media Tag and covered him in Distress Glaze to minimize the inking on him.  I did a simple blend of distress inks for the rest of the tag. No... I don't have the Distress Oxide inks yet!


I layered the Doily stencil and lattice rubbing off the ink between stencils with a baby wipe.  I cut the "GOT CANDY" with the Pastel Leather Paper pack and Alphanumeric letters.  Use the Magnetic Platform to keep everything from shifting.  Ink the edges so they pop!


Get the placement of the letters before adhering.  I decided a little ephemera needed to be here so some Ranger matte multi medium and black soot distress crayon really pulled it together.  I tucked the letters into the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker, rub and BAM instant sticky letters and not fingers.


OK, I added the Crazy Things bunny ears for fun!  I hate to fussy cut so I would get the Crazy Things Framelit if I was you.


I added the teeniest Small Tattered Florals for a pop of colour.


The Medium Bow Punch makes quick work for Chausten's bow tie!


Layering the stencils shows a subtle background effect.


Tied off with a fluffy bow inked with wilted violet distress ink.


Chausten and I had fun.  Although he doesn't seem too pleased with his bunny ears.  It was fun to create... just for fun for a change.  Chausten thinks so too...

    1. I think either you like them or don't. I did a number of stamped images just so I could have a few. But I will borrow... unless I find them for cheap...hehe!

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…

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…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
