Tricks n' Treats

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
OK, this time I mean it...last Halloween post of the year. 
 
I wanted to make one last project with my Skeletons.  I wanted to make a spooky gift for my SIL.  She loves Halloween like I love Halloween.    The Perfect Candy Holder!
 
 
 
I've been thinking about this guy holding the "HAPPY HALLOWEEN" from the Apothecary set for a couple weeks.
 

I inked it up and watercolor paper.


I Color Crackled the Pumpkin Parts.  It was a bone dry bottle.  So I added some water and poof it worked!


Here's a close up.


Some $1 Store bugs and a "happy Halloween" on the lid.


I used the Eileen Hull XL Square Box Die wrapped in the Kraft Resist Halloween Paper Stash.  Then I used some of my Distress Spray Stains.  BAM...color!  Then some Embossing Paste with the Halloween Stencil.


A bunch of bugs, leaves and flowers.


I Distress Spray Stain the inside of the box and stamped!


Fill with Candy!!!!!


I inked and distressed the Layered Leaf die and some Autumn Gatherings cuts.


This fun ATB is FULL of Tricks n' Treats!


Thanks everyone for taking one last look at my spooky goodies.  I promise, there is Christmas paper cut, stamps ready to ink and dies on the way!

I'll be playing in some spooky Challenges just before they wrap up for Halloween.  Be sure to check them out.  The Colored Crackle is for the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge #14.  The wonderful sponsor is The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

  6. "last Halloween post of the year..." I don't think I believe you, but that could just be disappointment that there's no more until next year. :( I've loved all your Halloween creative genius, but this was one of my faves. :)

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…

Who says making Christmas cards this season has to take a long time. With these simple techniques you can easily whip up some cards and make it look like you spent a long time on them.  Loving this non traditional look with Black and White.


To create this 5x5 card cut the pattern paper and white Super Stock Cardstockto layer.Ink the pattern paper with Distress Oxide Ink Black soot.Apply an even coat of Glue n' Seal over the Peace die cut and sprinkle with Distress Stickles Dry Glitter Clear Rock Candy


Ink the edges of the Sizzix Vintage Tidings with Distress Oxide Black Soot.  Add a touch of shimmer to these Sizzix Mini Holiday Greens cuts.  Apply Glue n' Seal with a paint brush to the tips of each greenery and coat with a dusting of Distress Stickles Dry Glitter Clear Rock Candy.  Start to build and layer your cuts and embellishments.
