Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!!  I found this great Tim Holtz Thinlits Frightening Faces set and I knew I absolutely needed it.  Then, Joanne's had their pumpkins on sale 70% off, so of course I had to buy a bunch.

With my trusty glue gun, I decorated hats with a variety of flowers, beaded spiders and some fluffy tulle.  I used to the thinlits to cut the faces out of vinyl  This was great because I could re-arrange the faces to make them look especially spooky.

I think this one is my favorite.

Misc:  Pumpkins, tulle, silk flowers, glue gun, beaded spiders, hats, crochet flowers, vinyl, Sizzix Tim Holtz Thinlits Frightening Faces

Ghostly Kisses

Here are some super cute little ghosts that are perfect favors for your Halloween party or a little sweet treat to add a little fright to your favorite trick or treater's day.

Vampire Test Tubes

I'm on a mission to use up supplies in my stash.  Probably one of the few benefits from being housebound after my surgery, I wasn't able to run out to Hobby Lobby or Michaels!

I did find tiny candy corn at Target, and they fit perfectly in these test tubes.  The vampires where cut using my Cricut and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Halloween Pinata

I'm always trying to think of different ways to use my supplies.  I picked up this little pinata die when we went to the Scrapbook Expo last spring and the stamp/die set from my birthday trip to the My Favorite Things Boutique.  

My Pure Innocence image was colored with Copics and paper pieced.  You can't see it, but there is a little bit of Diamond Glaze on her shoes and on her stick.  The card is made with lots of layers and lots of pop up dots.

The little pinata was pretty easy to put together.  This is the second attempt, the first one I used way too much glue on and it was very noticeable as I used black cardstock.  I used crepe paper, for the fringe trim, but I think next time I will use designer paper or cardstock as the crepe paper/glue combination made a mess as well difficult to handle.

It's just big enough to hold a small amount of candy corn, which is perfect for a little gift.

Stamps:  My Favorite Things-PI Birthday Pinata & Spider Web
Ink:  Versafine & Momento
Paper:  Copic X-Press Blending, Bazzill, The Paper Company, Bella Blvd.

Open If You Dare

I've been trying to figure out when I bought these egg carts.  I think it's been a few years, but they were next on my list to use.  I thought they would make great treat holders.

The tops were decorated using my Cricut and one of my favorite halloween spider dies.

Lately, I've been having issues with my pictures.  I can't ever seem to get them the way I like them.  So, I'm trying the indoor/outdoor method.  I couldn't decide which ones to post, so I decided to use them both.

Of course, it wouldn't a treat holder unless there were treats on the inside!

Side Step the Zombies!

This card was inspired by one I found on Pinterest here.  I found a tutorial to make a large side step card on You Tube, it was very easy, and you can find it here.

Ghostly Greetings

I can't believe that it's been 2 months since I've posted, I'm truly disappointed in myself.  I have been hard at work crafting.  Last April, I broke my foot, and I just had surgery at the beginning of the month.  I was out for two weeks, and I've made some amazing (I think they are) things and I can't wait to share them with you.

This is my first at making a multiple window shaker card.  I've made a few shaker cards, but nothing this complex.  For my birthday, my Mom and our friend, went to the My Favorite Things Boutique and I bought a lot of goodies.  It was a big birthday, and while I normally love my birthday, this year, I was a little down.  but retail therapy helped.

I didn't have any mounting tape that was thin enough, so I used some black foam that I bought on clearance at Hobby Lobby.  I ran it through my Big Kick (with the die) and then adhered it with some glue.  Easy peasey!  For some reason, my white sequins look pink, but I think it's just the angle of the picture.

Stamps:  My Favorite Things-Fab-BOO-Lous Friends
Ink:  Versafine & Momento
Paper:  Paper Studio, Bazzill, Recollections, Carta Bella
Misc:  Sequins, foam, acetate sheet, Papertrey Ink Collage die,  My Favorite Things Die-Namics, Copics
