I love crows for decorating this time of year. And they are everywhere! This is a $1 Store project featuring my crow and a Christmas Box. I picked up the crow for $2 and the box was $1.25 and I grabbed the wee witches hat at Michaels with my 50% coupon bring it to about $1.50. This whole project ended up costing about $5! Not to bad.
I popped the cone portion of the witches hat off so I could wrap it in matching paper. Then I glued it back into place.
The 31 is from the TH Gothic Boo die. I attached the tinsel and used my heat gun to age the tinsel.
I used up some old orange ribbon and attached this skull from a $1 bracelet. TH Skull n' Cross is some perfect hardware I glued in place by folding the brim.
Another skull and some glittery Halloween accents glued on top.
I made a banner with grungepaper and HAPPY HALLOWEEN stamped. I used some walnut stain ink to distress the edges. The attach with hot glue. A little glitter pumpkin and Spanish moss complete the creepy scene.
The Iron Fence boarder die is wonderfully gothic. The I attached the Word Band. A little more tinsel adds some bling.
I love the Apothecary Skull! He's so creepy. Then I used the eye ball from the Remnant Rubs- Elements.
Another great addition to my Halloween Collection!
How's your summer so far? Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south. So I am probably folding a lot of laundry.
TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters. Which means anything goes creatively! I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)
Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water. It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp. Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut. I popped it on the edges …
OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog! I really couldn't help myself. I mean... you know me!
This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS! Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps. Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal! So many creative ways to make stuff.
I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.
I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils. These are great for watercoloring too. Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.
I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks. Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting. Oi...
More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…
I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug! I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover. The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste. I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.
Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page. I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements. Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!
See, all those little bits popped right out! More inking and layering for these pages. Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's! I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …
