You Wood Do That! Haunted Design House!

Standard

Good afternoon Friends,

I wood like to share my “Wood” project with you all. Over at the “Haunted Design House” challenge blog their theme is “Wood.”

So here is my creation:

front-1-wood-challenge

I covered a curio cabinet with Graphic 45 paper. The lace trim behind the ornament is from Stampin Up!

To make this ornament I used “Crowned Angel Pendant” from A Gilded Life. They are a new company from Spellbinders. I put metallic Rubz, rhinestones from SU, half pearls from Pizazz A Plenty, and Journey Sparkle Glitter. I sealed it with Journey Glaze. I used metallic Rubz on the metal flower behind the Angel. The lace is from stash, that I glued to a circle punch out of cardstock. I used Tim Holtz’ “Vintage Photo” ink on it to Age it.

I used a Martha Stewart clay mold for the owl. I then put on Rubz, Journey Glitter and to seal it I used Journey Glaze.

 

frontskulls-wood-ch-hdh

This is the center of the cabinet. The top Skull Key I received from Lisa Hall, long time ago. The center skull is glass and I received it from Creepy Glowbugg. The bottom one is from Micheal’s it’s a Tim Holtz.  You can see more of the paper here. I used the Halloween stack “Steampunk Spells.”

 

frontcorner-hdh-wood-ch

Left side of cabinet. I do not remember where I got the corner pieces? But the glitter half moon and star was a Jolee’s from Micheal’s.

 

 

 

 

 

 

right-side-hdh-wood-challen  This is the right side of the cabinet.  The gold glitter flourish is a Jolee’s as well.

I bought this ornate scissor charm from “Violet’s Scrapbook” store. I don’t remember on the moon charm?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

full-cabinet

 

Here is the finished piece hanging on my wall. You can see my chunky wood Poe ATC up there, and my covered book that I made in Texas with Patti, at a Spellbinders class.

I first sanded down the cabinet, then painted it black. After I Mode Podged the papers on, I used a Stampin’ Up! sander to sand down all of the edges and on the wood to remove and scuff up the wood. Then used Tim Holtz’ “Vintage photo” ink on the edges of the paper and on the scuffed wood. I replaced the handle on the drawer with a knob from Lowe’s.

 

To the DT’s at HDH, I hope this is not to frilly for ya, and makes you throw-up! :)

I would like to enter my altered wood cabinet into:

Challenge #5 Sprite Delight by Aurora Wings stamps!

Standard

Good evening Friends,

This morning, before nap time, I created a “Pocket card” for the “Sprite Delight” challenge over at Aurora Wings challenge blog.

ChallengeThemeBanner_05_580x180

The challenge is to use one (Or more) of  Mitzi Sati-Wiuff’s Sprite stamps from her STORE. (Follow the link to go check them all out.)

My card:

Sprite-challenge-AW

The name of my Sprite is “Digital Stamp – Cherry Blossom Sprite 2 – Sakura Fairy Holding a Branch” (Follow the link to get this one.)

The sentiments are from “Create with TLC,” they were Freebies. The water droplets are stickers from Recollections. I colored the image using Copics.

To create the “Pocket card” I first used a die from “Fun Stampers Journey,” the die is called “Pocket card  item #DI-0003

The card stock is also from “Fun Stampers Journey,“called “Blue Lagoon.” item#CS-0004. I used the die twice, the second time using “Whip Cream” item #CS-0040 (To me the name is a little miss-leading, whip cream sounds to me like it would be an off white color. However, in this case Fun Stampers Journey calls their white card stock “Whip Cream” and it is a beautifully smooth white CS.)

Which reminds me… If you are a Copic marker user, and want a less expensive way of getting the perfect card stock for your coloring, then give this white card stock a try. If you are a Copic user, then you know that Neenah, and X-press it paper is very expensive! Well one day I had the Fun Stampers Journey’s “Whip Creamcard stock in front of me and decided to stamp my image, for my ATC swap, and then colored it in with my Copics, and I was amazed that it was so smooth to color on and works just like the X-press It paper.

The tabs on the “Whip Cream” card stock were made using another die from Fun Stampers Journey called “Pennants.” item#DI-0004.

(There is even a matching stamp set for this die called, “Banner Party.” item#SS-0009)

Using the top die I cut the pennants off of it.

So now I can pull out 2 tags with sentiments, or more images, or a message to someone.

So there ya have i,t my Sprite card.

I would like to enter my Pocket card into the following challenges:

Thank you for stopping by, I would love to read what you think, Stay Crafty my Friends!

Monochromatic Yo from the Leia Collection at Ike’s Art!

Standard

Good morning Friends,

I have a card to share with you all, using an Ike’s Art image, from the “Leia Collection.”

Monochromatic-challengeThe Ike’s Art image I used for this Monochromatic card is called “YO.” This is just one of the adorable images from the “Leia Collection”

The 'LEIA' CollectionAll of these images can be found in Ike’s shop click here!

 

I colored my image with Copics. Then with “Brushable Glue” that I painted on with a paint brush, I added “Neon Flamingo” glitter and “Pretty Princess” glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

Neon FlamingoPretty Princess

The back ground DSP is retired Stampin’ Up papers. I used retired “Pleated ribbon” from SU. The card stock is also Stampin’ Up called “” and I used a Spellbinders’ die cut on it.

I created this card as a DT card for Ike’s World Challenges. However the challenge is over in a couple of hours. I honestly thought we were taking a summer break so I never posted this card.

I have spent a month in Texas with a good friend, and I was not on the computer much. I could have posted this from Texas, by having my mom email me the photo, but I did not pay attention; and for that I do apologize to Ike, and everyone else for not posting this sooner. But I do hope you all will pay a visit to Ike’s Art shop and look around she does have some awesome digis.

Here is the link to Ike’s World Challenges.

You not be able to get a card made in time for the challenge #19 “Monochromatic” but go to the challenge blog and check out what the other DTs have created, they really do, do some amazing art work, it’s totally worth your time to just hop on over there for some inspiration, or to just be wow’ed!

I am back home, for now… leaving again July 16th for a week. I have some exciting information coming up very soon. (No I am not pregnant!) So tuned!
