Happy Autumn

Happy Sunday to you and thank you so much for joining me today.

For the final Autumn projects this year I chose to make the cute 3D Owl from the JGW Autumn Aire kit:

I used AC Cardstock in Coffee, Chocolate, Caramel, Rust and Latte along with patterned paper from Echo Park’s “A Perfect Autumn” and woodgrain patterned paper from Simple Stories.

All edges are inked with Distress Ink and I used some hemp cord to tie around the belly of the Owl.

I also doodled some highlights in his eyes with a white Sharpie.

He is quite large and sooooooo adorable not to mention very easy to make.

I also made the Oak Leaf Wreath:

I used AC Cardstock in Chocolate, Latte, Pomegranate, Leaf, Apricot, Mustard, Goldfish, Plum, Rouge and Wine for this.

All edges are inked with Distress Ink and the leaves and the berries are embossed with different embossing folders from Darice and Sizzix.

I also used pop dots to add the leaves to give it more dimension.

This one is going to live with my Mother, who recently moved from her house into a small apartment with a front door that has a window in it. This will be perfect to hang there and spred a little Autumn happiness.

Thanks for joining me today – now it’s time for Christmas! 😀

Luminary Skull

Hello – yes it’s me again.

Gosh I love this time of year!!! I get to use my wicked twisted brain to come up with some diabolic, evil looking projects.

Yes, I believe that Halloween should be scary and not cutesy. Not that there is anything wrong in cutesy projects for the kiddos, but when they reach a certain age (like me…29 😉 ) cutesy just isn’t fun anymore.

I always look for ways to make projects look creepy – the creepier the better 😀

That’s what I did to this awesome Skull Head Candle Holder from Simply Crafty SVGs – just added a bit more scary than was already there to begin with.

For this I used AC Cardstock in Black, White, Rouge and Chocolate along with patterned paper from Tim Holtz and some Grey Bling Cardstock from Bazzill.

I embossed the Skull panels with an Embossing folder from Sizzix (also a Tim Holtz I think) and inked all the edges with Distress Ink. I also added some black gems onto the skull layer on the bottom.

I added vellum behind the openings in the Skull and made the blood dripping down or Stearin drips myself. All I did was enlarge the dripping portion of the candle, cut away the top and some of the tabs and cut the pieces out (using scissors) a the scor lines. Then I glued the pieces onto the top of the skull using the top tab and voila!

I made the Bloody Hatchet in 50% of the original size and cut a small slit in the vellum behind the cracked panel on the Skull, so it could fit in there. I haven’t glued it down.

I know the skull isn’t too scary in the daylight but at night…….

…..Woah!!! :-O

Here’s a little fun video I made:

 

Thanks for joining me today – I hope you like my version of the Skull Head – tell me in a comment below please ❤

Poison and Potion

Happy Sunday and YES! It’s October….the month of Halloween – my favorite time of year.

I just love to decorate my house for Halloween. The kids are getting older and they don’t care as much for Halloween as the Evil Queen of a Mother, but I don’t care. I decorate for me and whom else that like it.

I also enjoy making the decor myself and find it especially fun to Halloweenify ordinary files into something creepy.

That’s what I did with the following bottles: The 3D Love Potion Bottle from the JGW Cupids Aim kit, the Myrrh Bottle from the JGW Gifts for the King kit and the Love Potion Bottle:

DSC_0006

For these spooky potion and poison bottles, I used AC Cardstock in Black, Plum, White and Apricot.

All edges are inked with Distress Ink and White Chalk ink from Ingvild Bolme.

I made some panels for the large bottle embossed it with a Swirly Embossing folder from Sizzix.

I also made these bottles into luminaries. I cut some different shapes (from the Witches High Top Boot from the JGW Bewitched Botique kit, Scratch Marks Design ID #118964 in the Silhouette Design Store along with the Skull Design ID #20905) Then I glued vellum behind the cutouts and finally I decorated with gems and various trinkets from my stash.

I found some cool strings of LED lights designed for bottles and used these in the large and small bottle. For the medium bottle I dropped in a color shifting LED light.

Now they are part of my spooky Halloween decorations in my living room and the truth be told….I think the kids like them.

Here a fun little video I made:

 

Thanks for joining me today – I’ll be back soon with more spooky Halloween projects.

Horrible Cake

Halloween is sneaking up on us and will arrive before we know it…..so it’s best to be prepared and get those decorations done.

It’s my favorite time of year – Honestly – I think Halloween all year long. When I see a new kit or file, my first thought is: Can this be Halloweenified?

The files I’m using for the project I’m about to show you, could!

Imagine Morticia Adams in the kitchen, baking a Birthday cake. Wouldn’t be just any normal cake now, would it? Nahhhh I imagine it something like this:

DSC_0015

A moldy cake with bloody filling topped with spiderwebs and naturally an axe to chop it up into fitting pieces. Served on a creepy stand with blood dripping down over the edge.

DSC_0011

I know I have a vivid imagination, but I couldn’t help myself (again)

I used several Simply Crafty SVGs files for this one – namely the Cake Slice Box (downsized by 50%) , the Bloody Hatchet (downsized by 25%) and the all new Cake Plate/Display Stand (Made a bit bigger to fit the scale)

I used AC Cardstock in Black, Rouge, Chocolate, Melon and Leaf along with patterned paper from Authentique’s “Tricky” Collection and some grey Bling Bazzill Cardstock.

I also used a Swirly Embossing folder from Sizzix to emboss the panels on the foot of the stand.

The blood splatter on the stand is a design from the Silhouette Design Store (Design ID #97008) by Sophie Gallo.

The cake slices (I made 8 for a whole cake) opens up so you can put some treats inside. I was thinking about using this as place cards, where people just find their own name and sit where ever they want to 😉

All of this is so easy to make and decorate – just let your imagination run wild!

That was what I wanted to share with you today – stay tuned for more creepy, bloody Halloween decor as we get closer and closer to the scary but awesome Halloween.

Colorful Autumn

I know we’re not quite there yet, but here in Denmark the weather is starting to say: Fall!

After an incredible summer with record high temps, a record long drought and record for most sunshine, August has been a bit disappointing in terms of heat and sun. We got lots of rain….enough to end the drought and make everything green again but come on….enough is enough 😀

In a few days it’s September and the first month of Fall so what better to start making Fall decorations.

I started out with the gorgeous Falling Leaves Topiary from  Hello Autumn SVG Bundle by Dreaming Tree:

DSC_0009.JPG

This is made from AC Cardstock in Boysenberry, Carrot, Cherry, Dandelion, Melon and Leaf.

I used a Darice Crackle Embossing folder on all the leaves and inked with Distress Ink from Ranger. The veins are made with Sharpie pens.

I couldn’t get the cone that is to be used with this project, so I made my own and I also altered the top to look like another layer instead of a gold cone. Finally I glued a Amethyst pearl on top.

I didn’t make the vase for it because I wanted it to be placed on a plate with some other Fall projects – like the Big Ghost Pumpkin from the Pick a Pumpkin kit from SVG Cuts:

DSC_0007

I made this one in AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Leaf, Coffee and Apricot and decorated with patterned paper from Galeria Papieru.

I also embossed a few panels with a bark-like embossing folder from Creative Expressions and inked all edges with Distress Ink and Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink. The leaf is embossed with a Cuttlebug Embossing folder.

Incredibly easy to make – even for beginners!!!

I also made the gorgeous Apple from the Miss Baker’s Classroom kit also by SVG Cuts:

DSC_0008

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Rouge and Leaf and embossed with a Sizzix letter embossing folder and the leaf with a leaf-veined embossing folder. All edges are inked with Distress ink and lastly I decorated the apple with some raffia and twine along with some small gems and a button from my stash.

These three items really goes well together, don’t you think?

So now it’s all ready to decorate my dining room table the next couple of months – until Halloween anyways 😉

Thanks for joining me today – I really hope you liked this post. Let me know in a comment below. Thank you ❤

 

Happy Little Hopper

Good evening……well – it is evening now here in Denmark 🙂

I’m just popping in to show you the cutest little bunny I made last night. It’s from Dreaming Tree’s latest bundle Easter Frolics  – the Easter Bunny Egg Box:

DSC_0005

She is made from AC Cardstock in White, Bubblegum, Lemon and Apricot along with Swiss Dot Cardstock from Bazzill in Purple and Pink, Orange and Green glitter cardstock. The facial features are made from black pearl paper and the freakels are Ranger Enamel Accent in Black. All the panels are embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder and I used lots of pop dots for the face, body, arms and feet along with the bow to give it the right dimension.

I dotted the eyes and feet with a White Sharpie and added a small flower gem to the center of the bow.

Now I did say “cute little bunny” but she’s really not that small at all. She can hold LOTS of chocolate Easter eggs 😛 A real treat for the youngsters (and people like me 😀 )

As always with Dreaming Tree the assembly is very easy (did mine without the tutorial) and smooth and in case you just want to get the bunny, you can get her seperately here.

Thanks for stopping by and please brighten my spirits with a small comment on your way out ❤
