Fall Leaf Votives

Fall Leaf Votive
** several folks have asked if the votives are washable, I did a quick test and it looks like if you hand wash, gently, and hand dry they are washable. I did not have any of the alcohol ink come off when I did a test wash.**

I created two fall votives for A Craft Junkie Too Design Team project last year and I wanted to repost them because I have many new followers and recently a new Friend was telling me about these fabulous votives she saw on a blog last year and I had to laugh because they were mine! I love the way they turned out. I created a video so you can see how I made these. They are quick, simple and inexpensive. I am linking these up to the "link up" party over at Cuttin' Up With Class so y'all create your own set and link them up too!! :-)

Please forgive the choppiness of the video, it was over 18 minutes long so I had to get it under the 15 minute limit and I am still learning how to edit! If anyone makes one please let me know, I would love to see them!

Please leave me a comment letting me know what you think, I love comments and I will confess to constantly checking for them! So, come on and make my day by leaving me a comment!!

SVGcuts.com 3D Haunted House

This 3D haunted House was SO much fun to make! :-)
It is part of SVGcuts.com's Elmhurst Hollow SVG Kit. I used textured black cardstock for the main body of the house and some patterned orange from an K & Co. Halloween stack. I added a spider brad, some distressing with Tim Holtz Black Soot distressing ink, and red vellum to the windows. In the back you can place 3 battery operated tealight candles and it is gorgeous all lit up (I did try to take a photo of it lit but they just didn't turn out well.) I used floral wire that I sharpie markered black to attach the bats so they appear to be flying. I am very happy with the way this turned out and it was fairly easy too!

Y'all, I am so sorry that my post is so late, I have had a time getting this post up! I was also late because I had my weeks all messed up and I am crazy making stuff to sell at two craft fairs I am participating it in November.
This super cute Caramel Apple Goodie Box was created by the fabulous Jani! I used glossy Accents on the caramel to give it extra dimension. (it is hard to see in the photo) I tied a bit of Trendy Twine around the stick and filled it with Halloween Hershey's Kisses. This weeks Challenge is greatly varied so please go over to the Cuttin Up With Class site and check it out, create a project and link up!! Thanks.

Happy Fall Y'all - My Scrap Chick

Happy Fall Y'all!! I made this card with My Scrap Chick's new collection "Harvest Kids". I used two patterns out of the collection, the fence and flowers set and the Boy #2 set. There are 11 different patterns in the collection and you can easily mix and match them. I used Tim Holtz distressing ink to give this a more distressed look, a bunch! of pop-dots and some white gel pen stitching and accents here and there. The face is a Peachy Keen face from their "Simple Simons" set and the sentiment is from Scrappy Moms "The Charmed Life" stamp set.

Cuttin Up With Class Challenge #3 ~ Fall Leaf

To create this Fall card I used the Maple Leaf pattern from Jani. I created a shadow in MTC and duplicated it, mirrored one of the pieces, bumped the two pieces together added a rectangle basic shape (to make the folded area slightly larger) and then welded to make my card base. I then cut the leaf shape out of a pretty fall patterned paper and the vein layer out of brown paper. I assembled my pieces and then pop-dotted the leaf to the card base. (oh, I forgot to say that I used Time Holtz Distress inks to distress the Kraft paper on the card base) I added some Cinnamon Stickles on the vein layer and then added a Copper bow, a wooden button and some twine. The inside says "Happy Fall". Please go over to Cuttin Up With Class , grab you free file (which includes both this leaf and an oak leaf) and participate in our challenge!!

Retro Crazy Daddio Card

Isn't this just the fun-est card ever!! LOL I LOVE it. I used the Lettering Delights "Hipsters" Cut-it set. I used a background paper from the DCWV Mod Retro stack and the brick paper is from the same stack. I used some metallic papers and some Crystal Effects on the body of the Base Cello. (I think that is what the instrument is, I am not musical other than listening and singing badly! LOL) My Aunt wants this card to send to a Friend of hers! I am considering parting with it! I guess I can make another one! LOL
Here is a close up of the instrument body.

The paper is from my stash except the cobweb paper, that is Echo park (I buy the digital version and print my own as I need it) The tag is from My Scrap Chick and the Stamped sentiment is from Joy's Life's "Holiday Occasions" Stamp Set. I inked the edges of the cobweb paper and the ribbon is from Wal-mart, the spider is a brad from my stash (sadly it is the last one I have!)
