BOO! Happy Halloween Week! Anything creepy happening with any of you???? I'm so loving all the decorations I'm seeing throughout the city when I'm out. It brings so many memories of my kidhood and Halloweens past. This entire blog post tonight is dedicated to Halloween (sorry Bonnie). LOL In my last post I said I wanted to share some 3-D items I've made along with an amazing "Pic of the Week". Come on, give me your hand and I'll walk you through safely. . .MUHHHHAAAAAAAAAA
I'll start with a card:
I've created another scene card. You can't see it clearly in the pic, but the ghost is covered in glitter from head to bottom of sheet! LOL It is really sparkly. The wonderful trees are by Paper Trey and the fence is a Martha Stewart clear stamp. Bats and pumpkin are by There She Goes". I drew and cut out the ghost so that is my own design. The headstone is a tag punch cut in half and I drew the little skull and distressed it. The grass and night sky were sponged with distress ink.
OK, now for the next stop on this horror walk. . .
This is a double pouch candy holder or tea holder. See it opened below:
Once again, you can't see it in the photo, but the inside pouch card stock is very glittery. This one holds two Ghiradelli squares. So quick and easy to make too. If you'd like to try one, you can see the video tutorial HERE.
Last stop on our walk of terror is here at this spooky magical box that turns into a frightening scene. . .
Do you dare open the box???? Hmmmmmmm???? Are you sure you want to?????? OK, here goes. . .
EEEEEEKKKKKKKKK! This is my own take on this style of box. They usually have all four panels fall open, but I wanted more of a scene in the background, so I made it where those two panels stay up instead of falling open. I love how this turned out if I do say so myself! LOL I again drew the ghost myself and cut it out. I covered it in glitter. The "dead grass" is real floral moss. The tombstones are miniatures I got at Michaels. They are poly-resin and the perfect size for this box. I used various stamp sets to create all the little scene panels. I attached the moss and stones with a hot glue gun. Here is a little closer view:
I honestly don't know why I can't get a good shot of "glittery stuff", so just pretend the ghost is really glittery because it is. If you want deets on how I made this box, just email me!
Now, it is almost time for us to part company, but before we go off into the night, I would like to point your attention to the "PIC OF THE WEEK" below:
This was taken on October 22ND with my little sweet camera. I honestly can't get over the fact that I took this with my little Kodak and you can actually see craters! I was just blown away when I uploaded this and saw the detail my camera captured. CLICK ON THE PICTURE - you won't believe what you can see.
After I saw how cool this moon pic was, I ran out to take another, but with a twist. . .take a look at this one:
I took this picture with the moon behind a tree branch for a spooky look.
I hope you've enjoyed this Halloween edition of the Wednesday Evening Post. I hope you all have a fun, safe, and happy Halloween. Thanks for coming by. I'll be coming by to see you all in the next few days. I'm always excited to see what you've done.
Bugs and Hisses to all of you! MUWHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA (changes to a bat and flies away into the misty night)
