Till Death Do Us Part

A Wedding card...not too creepy?  OK maybe a little.  I went to my nieces wedding this past weekend.  It was a gorgeous day for it.  Very unlike Calgary weather.  It's fall and close to Halloween so I thought this would be a fun card to create. 
 
Behind the couple I used texture paste with the Halloween Stencil and my new Distress Spray Stains.

 
The Orante Frame die is fabulous for haunting out my card.  It can be used for any occasion but it always looks amazing for Halloween.   I covered it with black soot distress glitter.
 
 
I used a Found Relative wedding card for this...fitting.  I used my skeleton head rub for rubbing over the grooms head. 

 
I crackled the card.  I was surprised that the card peeled and I love it.  Makes it creepier.
 
 
I added a black tattered pinecone flower. 

 
The tattered pinecone flower pops over the layered leaf and greens.

 
I added a mini clip on the inside of the card.  Here I attached some cash for the bride and groom.  Our Canadian money is coloured so the $100 brown bill was a perfect colour for the card.

 
Don't you just love this font!  I cut the sentiments using the Spooktacular Decorative Strip and glued.  I made my own background paper using a stamp from the Random Quotes set. 
 
 
Thanks for checking out my wedding card.  I sure hope the couple saw the humor in it!  Really, it could have gone either way!

  3. Nicole, I love how you think! I would be happy to receive a wedding card like this, but that's just me! Awesome details on this! I love the rub on idea, and I'm sure it's there for a good reason! I can't believe the peeling happened, but you made the most of it! Looks intentional! Great card and an excellent use of the dies!

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…
