Deadly Treats

Who doesn’t love all the yummy Halloween candy? I for one am a big fan of the spooky sweets and so are my kids. Mommy’s still hoping that the youngest will choose to have his Birthday Party as a Halloween Party but we will have to see. They grow up so fast and soon they race past Mommy who’s still a little child when it comes to Halloween. Can you tell???? 😀

In this post I will show you the last project I made from Bird’s Creak ‘n’ Shriek SVG Collection – the Coffin Treat Box:

This box I made from AC Cardstock in Black along with patterned paper from Carta Bella’s “Trick or Treat”. I inked all the edges with white chalk ink from Prima and added two small gems on the “RIP” sign. Then I filled it with lots of yummy treats – all ready for the big day – Oct. 31st. 😀

Thanks for stopping by and please leave a small comment on how your liking the projects ❤

Looking to scare som guests at your next Halloween party or do you just (like me) enjoy some spooky horrifying decorations?

I made this from AC Cardstock in Black and White along with patterned paper from Carta Bella “Trick or Treat.” I inked all the edges with white chalk ink from Prima, added two gems to the “RIP” sign and put in some color-changing LED lights.

This rather large decoration looks a bit spooky in daylight but watch what happens when nighttime comes…..

Spooky Light Box

This weekend the magnificent Bird released a fantastic new Halloween Collection – The Creak ‘n’ Shriek SVG Collection from where you’ll find several fun and spooky projects for your Halloween party or decorations.

I threw myself at the Spooky Light Box

I wanted it to match some of my other Halloween decorations, so I made it in Black, Ash, Stone and Squash AC Cardstock – still pretty spooky in daylight but life really comes into it at night with at light behind….

I really love these Light Boxes. They are so easy to make and assemble and they are so amazing to look at both during the day but especially at night

Thanks for yet another great design Bird!

Now onto more fun from this great collection………………

Dun Dun Dun Dun …….

….we all know this tune! You know – the Theme from Jaws! A fitting soundtrack for my tiny post today 😀

The other day when I posted the Acorn Shaker, Team Member Lee Cox mentioned her idea of making a shaker card from the latest collection by Bird – Jawsome but she didn’t have the time for it, so she gave the idea to me. Trying my best to honor her wicked idea, here is what I came up with:

I used the shark from the Shark Window Card and made it into a shaker card by adding 7 layers behind the front layer with the acetate. I removed the teeth on the back layers to give more room for shaking and made two front layers with teeth – one in red and one in white – to give the impression of bloody teeth. I also cut out tiny fish skeletons in white pearl paper and added a bit of red ink to make them look bloody 😀

The background paper I found in the Silhouette Design Store but any sea or wave paper could do.

The card is a freebie from the Card Bundles – the Pop-Up Slider Card from Card Bases. I added the green panels (they are actually the same olive green as the background) to give it a little extra and cut the text from red cardstock in a blood dripping font 😀

Finally I tied some red, white, grey and black raffia onto the slider (doesn’t show in the picture 😦 ) and added two small black pearls as eyes.

Here’s a little close-up:

Yummy!!!!

Thanks for stopping by to witness the twisted and bloody mind of mine (and Lee Cox’s) and don’t forget to tell what you think of this bloody fish-eating shark card 😀

Acorn Shaker

Soon Summer has ended and my favorite season of all – Fall – will be upon us in all its glorious colors and beautiful blue cool sky ❤

I must admit that I haven’t longed for Fall as much this year as the previous years cause Summer here in Denmark hasn’t been all that hot. Still when I look through my scrap papers and I find one with Fall colors, I just can’t wait ’till all the leaves turn and it again is time for hot cocoa and sweaters 😀

Today I want to show a Fall Easel Card. It’s made from two of Bird’s SVG files: The Easel Card 2 (found here ) and the Acorn Shaker Place Card from the Autumn Leaves SVG Collection (found here)

For this beautiful card I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla and Olive along with patterned papers from BoBunny – Autumn Song (one of my favorite collections). I “inked” the edges of the card with some Gold Metallic Lustre from DecoArt and used some different color sequins from my stash.

I followed the instructions on making the Acorn Shaker up to the point where you use 7 layers to make the shaker. I just added 7 more layers on top of the Acorn and used gold foil on the top layer. I also made a piece for writing by making an offset of the patterned paper piece and then I added two tiny jewels as stopper.

I’m definitely going to make more Shaker Cards in the future – this was fun!!!

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to write me a little something ❤
