Haunted “Mushroom” House

September 20, 2020

Hello friends, it’s Sandy Diller with you today for a fun and easy Haunted “Mushroom” House. This is a large card, 6″ X 7″, so that is going to require a custom envelope that you will need to create. This is lots of fun so let’s get started.

Begin by cutting out the house using the Mushroom House Folding Card. Distress Oxide Inks was used here to color the mushroom stem and the lower part of the roof. I used Black Soot for the top part but it does look like green here. It actually looks green on the finished card but I’m ok with that.

Use the same die set to cut the doors and windows. The Halloween Scenery die set was used for the tree & graveyard. One of he Stitched Circles was used for the moon and then edged with orange.

The top part of the roof was cut from a scrap in my stash. Once all pieces were cut and colored, assembly began. The ghost on the top came from one of my older Elizabeth Craft Designs set. The ghosts are cut from vellum so they would look more spooky.

The last piece added was the moon.

Now I must confess that once I got everything assembled the way I wanted it, I was not happy with the way it looked from the inside. To solve that problem – the card was closed – glued shut and mounted on a piece of purple paper. Sometimes in card making we have to take a detour.

Once it looked acceptable – it was added to a black background with a thin boarder all around. At this point – one more ghost was added.

Since this is such a large card a separate back panel was added.

On the inside the largest Indented Rectangle die was used and the sentiment was stamped.

Happy Haunting,

Sandy

Beware!!!!

August 12, 2020

Anyone who knows me a little, knows that I love Halloween. I like dress-up parties, theme parties and everything that has to do with witches. In a past life I must have been a witch once, lol.

This year I will make an October day by day so that I can count down to the 31st…..HALLOWEEN!

Today I show you page 1 of my Halloween Day By Day.

I work in the sidekick planner, which is a really nice format for this special month.

This time I made a planner pocket top loading, just like in the big planner. I made this myself with a little imagination. On my blog I showed earlier how to make this pocket. See it HERE.

The pocket insert will be my first page of my Halloween DBD. I decorated the pocket with a few cute stamps and dies. I stamped the cute witch and the bats (halloween party) on soft finish cardstock and colored it with the watercolor palette.

With the Note pieces Planner Essentials set I made the tag to put in the pocket. I finished it with the tab from the planner filmstrip set.

I also made the frame for a photo that you can add later. The lantern die is included in the Art journal set of streetlights. 

The page is finished with reinforcers from the Planner Essentials set 11. I made the date with filmstrip numbers.

I made this nice pendants, which might be more to come later, by stamping the stamps from the Halloween party set on shrink foil. They are colored in with pencil. I carefully cut them out, gave them a hole and let them shrink with the heat tool. 

Here and there I added an accent with a white gellyroll pen and they got a layer of glossy accents.

This is the page I wanted to show you this time. Hope you enjoy it and hope you love Halloween as much as I do!

Have fun,

Marjolijn.

Halloween Lollypop Holders

September 4, 2017

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s Frances here and it is my turn to post a tutorial today for the Die Cut Design Team. With Halloween just under two months away (57 days actually), I thought it would be fun to play with some of the new Halloween dies and stamps from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Halloween isn’t as big an event down here in Australia as it is in the USA, but I do love creating Halloween-themed projects when I can.

Today I have created two Halloween Lollypop Holders to give to trick or treaters, or in my case, to my grandchildren.
