Mad Hatter’s Mourner’s Hat with a Twist?

Hello – I’m back again this Sunday with more Halloween spookiness. This time from SVG Attic.

I really can’t decided whether it’s a Mad Hatter’s Hat or a Mourner’s Hat. It’s definitely a hat!

I wanted to make the Mourner’s Hat from the JGW Raven Quest kit this Halloween but as I progressed, the project changed due to my hyperactive brain. “I wonder if this can be done…..?” “Hmmmm can I do this…..?”

The answer: Yes! I did it. Presenting the Halloween Mad Hatter’s Mourner’s Hat with a twist:DSC_0006

The hat is made from AC Cardstock in Black and Charcoal and inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink in White.

I made the panels and the little shelves myself with the Silhouette Software. The Panels are embossed with a Bark patterned embossing folder from Darice.

I made small holes in the back of each shelf for the light to shine through.

I added a scratch mark in one of the panels and backed it with vellum – also for light to shine through. I found it in the Silhouette Design Store Design ID #118964 by Sophie Gallo.

Then I got busy decorating the hat with all sorts of nick nack Halloween style I could find in my stash.

The flowers are from Prima, several of the decor pieces are from Ideaology  and the gem swirls are from BoBunny.

I wrapped “Mummy Cloth” around the hat as a band and also around the bow.

One of the most awesome feature, is the Zombie Hand that holds the lantern. It’s also from Ideaology and I love it to bits….It’s so cool.

It’s pretty creepy in the dark:

Haunted Lantern

Hello and welcome back – yes it’s me again. Did I mention that I really love Halloween????

Ha ha once or twice maybe. Yes I love it and I love spookifying everything in sight.

This time it happen to the amazing Lantern 3D Hanging Floral Grille from the Pushing Petals Kit

DSC_0002

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Charcoal and Rouge along with some Bazzill Bling Cardstock in a light grey.

The blood border and bloody handprint are from the Silhouette Design Store (Design ID #223575 by Sophie Gallo and Design ID #98189 by Jamie Cripps)

The flowers are from Prima – some single ones that I just put together how I liked and the brads are from my rather large stash.

DSC_0004

The Cameo, spider and burlap bow are from Ideaology by Tim Holtz and the spider web is available everywhere these days I think LOL…..

It’s a very easy but detailed lantern to make – not that large but that’s how I like it. It looks awesome in my kitchen with some of my other Halloween decorations.

Thanks for stopping by today….more coming up soon so stay tuned!

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.

DSC_0017

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.

Fall Fun

Hello – so glad to see you again! Hope you’re having an awesome Fall Sunday.

I’ve been having fun with various fall projects lately and two of them, I’ll show you right here. There are lots to choose from in the SVG Attic catalog and it’s hard to limit yourself to just a few (just look at me! 😀 )

First of is the cute Scarecrow with Hay Bale Stand from the JGW Fall Ensemble kit:

DSC_0014

I used AC Cardstock in Chestnut, Coffee, Kale, Bubblegum, Rouge, Butterscotch, Melon, Apricot, Leaf, Latte, Black and Surf along with patterned paper from Echo Park Paper’s collection “A Perfect Autumn.” All edges are inked with Distress Ink from Ranger in matching colors.

So easy and straight forward to make and if you do not glue the stick inside the Hay Bale, it’s very easy for storage. Isn’t he adorable?
Next I made the 3D Acorn from the JGW Harvest Blessing kit:
DSC_0013

This guy is made from AC Cardstock in Caramel, Coffee, Chestnut, Apricot and Leaf along with the patterned paper from Echo Park. I used a dotted embossing folder on the lid panels to match the bubbly pattern and a leaf vein embossing folder on the large oak leaf. All edges are also inked with the Distress Ink.

Then I tied some raffia around the stem for a little extra.

As I’m going to use this as decoration in my living room along with the Scarecrow, I didn’t need it to be a box, so I glued it shut.

It just doesn’t get more fall-like than this, right?

The Lone Rooster

Hello – I hope you’re having a nice Thursday today.

I’m just popping in to show you the awesome Rooster 3D Large Figure from SVG Attic that I made some days ago. He is just perfect for fall and I found him very intriguing so I just had to make him.

I also had an ulterior motive for making him – it was my next door neighbors Birthday and she and her husband has a Chicken Coop and lucky for us next door – no rooster. Not that I go around the whole town and give everybody presents, but I wanted her to have him, just like saying: Please let him be the Lone Rooster in the Coop.

Here he is:

DSC_0001

He is made from AC Cardstock in Clay, Mustard, Latte, Coffee and Cranberry and decorated with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “French Country” and some Swiss Dot Bazzill cardstock.

I inked all the edges with Distress Ink from Ranger and dotted his eyes with a White Sharpie.

He is surprisingly easy to assemble and stands well on his own.

DSC_0003

I really hope my neighbor likes him and gets my little joke.

Thanks for visiting today – hope you like the Lone Rooster.

Sweet Dreams

Hello and Happy Sunday to you – thanks for joining me today.

Let’s talk sleep! Do you sleep enough? Do you sleep well? Ha ha ha ok….getting to the point: 😀

I’ve always loved the old legend of the Dream Catcher – that if hung in a window in the bedroom, it would sort the good dreams from the bad and only let the good dreams through.

Not that I’ve been having nightmares, I just thought it was time for such a pretty ornament in our bedroom window, so I jump to the chance of making one.

DSC_0014

I used the Indian Dream Catcher and cut the ornament piece 8 times, stacked and glued them together for a stronger ornament.

Then I altered the feather piece slightly to make room for a hole for the raffia to go through, so I could tie them onto the ornament.

Finally I added some pearls and gems as decoration and voila – done in no time!

I used AC Cardstock in Chestnut, Woodgrain patterned AC Cardstock in Chestnut and patterned paper from DCWV “Mercury Glass Paper” and “Wood, Marble and Brass” from Recollections.

Now no bad dreams are to be dreamt and I look forward to a nice long nap….LOL 😀

Thanks for visiting today.

Fall Shakers

Hiya and happy Sunday 🙂

Fall is here! Might not feel like it in some parts of the world, but the calendar says so. Soon the leaves will be dropping every where but first they’ll turn with magnificent colors – Oh I can’t wait!

To bring you in the mood, I made two cards. They were originally flat cards but I turned them into shakers. Just can’t help that urge to make it a bit more challenging.

You’ll find both cards in the JGW Harvest Wishes kit and the first one I played with, is the 3 Vintage Pumpkin Card:

DSC_0016

For this card, I used AC Cardstock in Oregano, Butterscotch, Apricot and Rouge along with patterned paper from Carta Bella’s Collection “Hello Fall”

It is very easy to make such a card into a shaker card if you own a Silhouette Cameo. You simply undo compound path on the pumpkins and make a internal offset of those shapes. You cut these shapes 5-6 times and layer them and glue this shape unto the back piece. Then you take your first made shapes and cut them in acetate. You layer the original pumpkin piece onto the acetate and glue it down. Now you find the glitter and confetti you want to use in the shaker and gently put it into the raised shape and close the pumpkin by gluing the top piece with the acetate onto the raised shape. Voila!

I sure hope I made sense there!

Next I made (with the exact same procedure) the Leaf Flake Card:

DSC_0017

For this I used AC Cardstock in Leaf, Apricot and Rouge along with the patterned paper from Carta Bella. The top panel of the card is cut in Rose Gold Foil Sticker paper (grrrr 😦 …..doesn’t show well on the picture) and for both cards I used various glitters and glass beads from my stash along with confetti from Nuvo.

Hope you enjoyed my post today – Fall isn’t over yet and neither am I, so look forward to more Fall projects from me.

Bewitched Cake Stand

Hello… (waving enthusiastically) … just sneaking in today to show you a very fun project I’ve been working on this last week. 🙂

I got the idea from a friend who showed me this picture:

40684094_241544659753572_7144910669375078400_n

First I thought “corny” but then I kept thinking about it and wondering if it could be made in paper. And….yeah it could!

Roaming through files I found that SVG Attic had the right files for it, so I started building.

I wanted mine to be a Halloween inspired Cake Stand and I gathered the files I needed for this: The 3D Witches Boot from the JGW Bewitched Botique kit, the Sunflower 3D Cake Stand from the JGW Sunflower Sunshine kit and the Cats & Pumpkins Hollow Centers Wreath.

I also made the Mini-Candy Cauldron also from the JGW Bewitched Botique kit to sit on top of the stand – I would have liked a cupcake but just didn’t feel like baking 😉

This is how it turned out:

DSC_0009

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Leaf, Black, Melon, Grape, Carrot and Charcoal along with some Purple Pearl Paper, Gold Foiled Cardstock and patterned paper from Doodlebug’s Collections “Boos and Brews” and “Booville”

I used the stem part from the Cake Stand to make the legs (just made it a bit longer) and added some glitter tape onto for striped socks. Inside the legs are two 3/4″ dowels for support.

DSC_0004

The top part of the cake stand is reinforced underneath with 4 platform shaped pieces and the legs are glued unto it with hot glue. I chose to use the Cat and Pumpkin Wreath to place on the top for a fun decoration.

DSC_0008

The boots are downsized by 50% to fit the size of the Stand and the legs are glued into them also with hot glue. I added some glas stones into the boots for weight so the whole stand gets more sturdy.

I used twine, various Doodlebug sprinkles and the small patches etc. that comes along with the boots.

DSC_0012

For the Cauldron I used gold foiled cardstock for the handle and chose to use the spider tag on which I doodled two small eyes and added a black gem.

DSC_0011

Actually it’s a pretty easy projects when you think about it – it’s all about getting that idea. Thank you Sandy for providing me with it. ❤

DSC_0001

Thanks for joining me today – I really hope you like this wacky project. A fun centerpiece on the Halloween table or as decor in the living room….endless possibilities. 🙂

Autumn Wind

Nothing is more beautiful than Autumn – in my opinion anyways. I just love this season! The colors are amazing and astonishing, the light is so warm, sky blue, wind is cool and then there is the promise of cold snow….ahhhh can’t wait!!!! 🙂

It is also the season for storms and lots of wind. The best time of year for the Wind Turbine industry at least here in Denmark and we have lots of Wind Turbines. My hubby works in the industry….so I know this is a busy time of year.

Now I don’t have files for a Wind Turbine….at least not yet (*wink* *wink*) but Jodi made the most gorgeous Dutch Windmill this Spring (find it in the Dutch Treat Kit), and that is close enough. So I tied the two together – the season and the Mill and got a beautiful Autumn 3D Windmill:

DSC_0005

I made this out of AC Cardstock in Coffee, Leaf, Wine and Apricot along with patterned paper from Prima “Amber Moon” – a gorgeous collection from last year.

I found it fairly simple to make and assemble but you have to follow the tutorial (found here) thoroughly as it’s a complex but very genius construction.

I inked all the edges with distress ink from Ranger and chose to use hot glue for the attachment of the wing part.

Then I decorated with some small pumpkins from Ideaology and leaves from Prima along with a large Prima flower.

DSC_0006

I really love how versatile this Mill is – just ready to be decorated for whatever season or holiday.

DSC_0011

This Mill actually went to a lady in the Netherlands – the Mother of my son’s gamerfriend. I thought it very fitting to give it to her as a thank you for her welcoming Magnus into her home in February when we visited and for letting her son join Magnus and his Dad on a trip to Germany a couple of weeks ago, where they visited a Gamer Convention.

Ok – enough from me today. Hope you enjoyed it and please do leave me a small comment below. I love to hear from you ❤

Oh Baby

Hello – Just peeking in today with a little blog post. Seems to be a baby boom going on 😀 This is the second baby project in a row for me.

This time I made the cute Baby Peeking Cascade A7 Card from the Oh Baby Kity.

DSC_0030

This darling card is made from AC Cardstock in White, Marine, Wave, Sky, Blush, Black, Sunflower, Mint and Clay along with patterned paper from Primas Baby Boy Collection.

All edges are inked with Distress ink and the clothes line, is a piece of twine. The two small clothes pins and the two small dots on the sentiment, I found in my huge stash.

DSC_0032

It is to be used as a Baptism Card, so I changed the wording on the tag to say “Congratulations” in Danish.

I just love everything about this cutesy cascade card. That baby face is just to die for ❤

Thanks for joining me today – I really love your visits and please leave a comment below to let me know how you like my card 🙂
