Boo-tiful Halloween Cards

BOO
 
I'm working on a little something for my kids and niece for Halloween.  Last year I created a bunch of Halloween card, Bevy of Monsters and they have been pretty Spooktacular with everyone.  So this year I made another quick and easy set. 
The paper is Authentique 6x6 paper pack from last year and the cards are standard A2, 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".  All the spooky accents are my Movers and Shapers mini dies.  I made all 4 cards in about 20 minutes.  However, the dry time on the Movers and Shapers doubles that time.
 
My little bat cut with cereal box, painted black and layered with Glossy Accents is rockin with BAT-itude! The stamps used with these cards are Scrappy Moms Stamps, called Goosebumps!  The Bat Fence punch is Martha Stewart and ribbon is Michaels.

 
When you open the card the spooky continues!

 
Love the skulls!  Again the stamp is Goosebumps and the Halloween Bakers Twine you can order through SMS

 
I paired the sentiment on the inside to the skull of the outside!
 
 
Also a Martha Stewart fence punch, this rickety old thing goes with my pumpkin.  I also added a copper wire as a trendil attached to the stem.  The leaves I picked up are Prima. 

 
These sentiments are from the new SMS, Pick of the Patch!

 
The scary cat is is painted in black and a thick layer of Rock Candy is applied to make it crackle!  The front of the cards sentiments are all stamped with SU's Craft White, then clear embossed.

 
One of my favorite stamps in the Goosebumps set.  Love this font!

 
Voila...

 
You can cut these down in time to under 30 minutes if you avoid the painting, glossy accents and rock candy dry time!  Be sure to check back later and see what I'm making to go with these!

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

TUTORIAL; Little Drummmer Boy...or Wooden Horse

I made a Christmas Drum!  I think I love this one more than myChristmas Village!  One of my "ENABLER" crafty peeps told me about a Christmas Drum she pinned on Pinterest, click HERE to see the Pin.  I fell in love!  I started collecting the goodies a couple weeks ago and finally sat down to build it yesterday.  It only took a couple hours and it was a blast to create.  Check out this beautiful Christmas Drum. I started with a teaser post on my newInstagram account.  I inked up these TH Bottle Brush trees with re-inkers!  I started with this round hat box I found at Michaels for 50% off.  I like it because it was already a vintage paper box.  Simply Stunning!  I made a line all the way around the base of the lid.  This way I know where to stop when adding the beads.  If you don't stop you won't be able to close the lid.  Don't worry, you won't see the line.  I used some twine and tape to give me an idea where the beading was going to be put.  It's a r…
