Paper Flowers and Geared Wishes

This is a jammed pack post!  Eileen Hull has her new dies and the team is teaming up Crescent Art Products.  For this project I played with the RENDR paper cutting, inking and stamping the new Flower Pansy die.  It's not only an Inspiration Team Post, but also a Contest Entry and a Birthday Gift.   

This project is full of dies, technique and lots of ink!

I used a template for the mini pizza box.  You can get the template HERE to enter the Where Woman Create Contest.  I cut watercolor paper, die cut the Gearhead and inked.


Spray, ink and distress.  Then I cut a piece of plastic to layer inside the box cover.


I cut a piece of watercolor paper and folded.  Cut 3 1/4x 9 3/4's then score 3 1/4 creating 3 folded space to create.  Ink and stamp for background.  Time for some inky letterpress blocks.


Ink, dry and EMBOSS IT.  I used  burnt copper leaves and hammered metal EP for the letters and Upper Typo "50".


Coat and heat for a thick metallic masculine effect.  This is my forst time using RENDR paper and LOVE IT!  I inked and stamped to create my background for the new Flower Pansy die.  


Flowers can be a masculine!  Stamped with gears and rusty spray tones.  Layer with a Gears 2 and photobooth card.


This is a gift for my husband's birthday.  I decorated the folded insert with a resent photo of us in Venice Italy.   More gears, inked and embossed.


Pull together the embellishments and layer.

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…

Apothecary Curiosities Coffin

Creepy coffin, I love this one!  I saw these little wooden coffins at the $1 Store and had to get one.  I ended up making this for a class and everyone loved making them.  Halloween is the best!  All the creepy stuff I get away with creating! I picked up these great skeletons at Michaels on a string of garland...6 per rope.  With a little force he fits! I made a template of the coffin and cut Tim Holtz Laboratorie paper to fir in the back. I accidentally broke my skeleton's arm.  Oops!  So, I glued his arm holding the glitter pumpkin.  SAVE! I picked up these skulls on a bracelet for $1.  Layering the Curiosities Coffin is key!  You want to look at the layers, like mesh, pen nib and a spider! I added the "shelves" using popsicle sticks cut to size.  This way it has a cabinet feel. The Apothecary Remnant Rubs are so perfect of the glass bottles full of eyes! Adding a little Spanish Moss makes it all creepy. I LOVE HIM! After the sprayed coffins were dry I sanded them to …
