On the 11th day

So here is my creation for the ever loved by me Simply Betty Challenge....
It's not my best work but I like the effects of it. I hate working as a night-shift nurse sometimes. It so gets in the way of my crafting time... How Rude!! Hehehe!
To tell ya what I have done now... I used Martha Stewart's halloween paper, cut in half, folded at 3inches and then 9inches so the card would open outwards. Then I took the other half of the 12in paper and cut it at 3in and 9in. I did this so I could adhere it to the inside of the card. Making it look all uniform.
Next I cut out little bats with my cricut cartridge Happy Hauntings. Adhered some with pop-up dots and some I made little springs from black wire and adhered. I hope that you can see the dimension (I'm really not the best photographer when it comes to doing photos of my work). Added the cool letters from Martha Stewart also. Then stamped the halloween and using embossing powder heat embossed it. Added the little vampire dude and that's all she wrote...
Thanks for looking!!!

Fabulous Dah-ling!

So here is a cute easel card I made for the 12 days of Halloween over at Betty's. I used the new die cut from Tim Holtz to make the spider. I added some stickles and some flock to him and little strips of cardstock for his legs...
I then hand stiched, yes hand stiched all of those spider webs. Attached it to orange bazzill cardstock with pop dots.
Next I added the purple bazzill cardstock to the bottom. Added a flower and gem. I printed out Spinderella and colored with copics. Then I wrote out the wording on white cardstock. Had the happy halloween stickers from recollections.

Love Potion #9

So this a treat holder underneath a candle.
I used DCWV paper for the background. Took Modge podge and glazed the whole thing. Then I used a label I didn't like and covered the back with glimmer mist. I then stamped with embossing ink the cute little chemistry items from There she goes stamps. Colored them with copics and used more embossing ink and used ranger clear embossing powder to make them look glassy.
Made the butterfly from tin foil and alcohol inks. Placed some flowers I had.
Used tissue paper and glimmer misted that. Placed flowers and purple wire in place. Took some vellum heart paper and placed that. Then I placed a large candle at the very top so it looks like the whole thing glows. (the picture does not do it justice).
Hope you like...

Scary Movie

So I know I missed the time frame by 9 minutes on the post but I made it so I am going to post it. My darn watch was 15 minutes different. I knew I should of checked the computer time. Oh well!
I used paper from Creative Imaginations as the background. I took the picture (which is awesome) from the website .
I placed that on the Coredinations Cardstock. Cut out all the letters from the cricut using the Happy Hauntings and the October 31st cartridges.
I used stickles to color in the letters with black and burgandy. I used recollections ribbon over the picture. Placed the EEEK from Jolees. Then the transparency bling thing. I don't know who makes that.
I used liquid enamel to make the 13 ghosts stand out.
Again this is for the Betty Challenge that I missed by minutes. :(

My favorite halloween costume

Yes that is really me way back in the day!!! Wasn't I a little brat!?!

Anyways I used Creative Inspirations patterned paper for the background and the cherry paper. Then I took the DCWV rockstar matstack and cut out the guitar, used Tim Holtz distress inks to change the color. I used copics to color in the Theresa Collins stamp, which I added glittery stars from MM. I took the Holiday Headstart download and cut down the Happy Halloween to just halloween. Didn't like the green so I used enamel accents to color it in.
Used a whole bunch of stickles, paper ribbon, and whole bunch of thickers.
