WITCHY CREEPMAS TAG

Hello I'm  here today with a creepy Creepmas creation in the form of a fun Creepmas Tag. I chose to use Rick St Dennis MFA's Digital image Witch Tree. You can find Witch Tree in Rick's Zibbet Store HERE.. I coloured her up using my copics, fussy cut and put to one side. I used a Tim Holtz tag die to cut my tag. I then fired up photoshop  using a digital paper by Abigail Larson to create a background for the tag. I also created a creepmas label as an accent, printed these out and attached to the tag base. I then added the Witchy Tree image using 3d foam pads to make her pop off the tag. A black ribbon bow was then tied to the top of the tag for the finishing touch.

                                                           Here is the finished Tag.

Decembers Progressive Challenge final part with Christmas Party Hat and Creepmas with Airless Chambers.

I'm here today with the second installment of part 2 of the Progressive Challenge over on The Sparkle and Glitter Blog. If you missed the first part, please feel free to go look here.beautiful image called Christmas Party Hat. She's available to purchase if you didn't manage to enter part one and get her free. You never know - it could be you winning and be able to get more images from the store. Zibbet has the largest choice, Etsy has an instant download function. Both stores have their good points.
 
For my Project I decided to create another tealight box card. Tutorial can be found here on the Stampartic blog.  I coloured up the Christmas Party Hat Lady image with copics then fussy cut and placed to one side. I then proceeded to follow the tutorial to create the box. I then  filled the box with apple and cin­na­mon glitter scented tea lights. I then created the book cover and matted and layered with cardstock and papers.  The inside was then also decorated and a sentiment attached.The tealight box was then attached to the inside of the cover. The Christmas Party Hat Lady was then mounted with 3d foam pads onto two die cut frames using spellbinders dies  Then matted and layered onto piece of cardstock and paper. Before attaching to the front of the book cover a piece of organza ribbon was attached to the book cover and the main image attached to secure the ribbon in place. A lovely seasonal gift.

Now onto my second project t show you today.
 
Airless Chambers are still hoisting the banner for the Creepmas celebrations if you share a slightly less than traditional view on the holiday period. It's all good fun, what ever way it's looked at. I know everyone participating is having a blast.
 
For my Creepmas make I decided to make a hanging star ornament. This beauty measures 5 inches across. I cut the star pieces on my brother scan and cut in Red and Black cardstock and assembled . I then coloured up Rick st Dennis's image Sandy Claws Digi Stamp available in his Zibbet Shop with my Copics. Once coloured fussy cut and attached to the centre of the star with 3d foam tape. attached some Red Glittery string and hung.  I think I am quite pleased how this turned out.

Now onto my project for the final challenge. I decided to use Teri's Evil Snowman and create a tealight box card. Tutorial can be found here on the Stampartic blog. I coloured up the evil snowman with copics then fussy cut and placed to one side. I then proceeded to follow the tutorial to create the box.I filled the box with apple and cin­na­mon glitter scented tea lights. I then created the book cover and matted and layered with cardstock and papers. The tealight box was then attached to the inside of the cover. The Evil Snowman was then mounted with 3d foam pads onto a mat and layered piece of cardstock and paper. Before attaching to the front of the book cover a piece of organza ribbon was attached to the book cover and the main image attached to secure the ribbon in place.

Fallen Angel.

I'm here today with a Dark project using Rick's Creepmas Angel Dark Lady  available in his Zibbet Store. I coloured her up with copics going for the warm Grey family. Fussy cut her and put to one side. I used an 8x8 card blank and matted the skull background paper onto black cardstock then attached to the card base. I then die cut a frame using a spellbinders die from black cardstock. I created the text in photoshop, printed onto white card, cut and attached to the black frame with 3d foam to raise a little. The frame was then attached to the card. Dark angel was then attached to the card with 3d foam to make her pop. I then created an insert for inside the card in photoshop, printed, cut and attached to the inside of the card. Quite pleased how this one turned out.

Holly Berry and Glitter Too..............

Hello, I'm here today sharing my latest creation with a little Christmas cutie from Rick St Dennis. Now I don't normally do cute as I'm a bit partial to Rick's Darker images. But for this one I came out of my comfort zone and gave it a go and I even used glitter too...................LOL. I made a Christmas card and as I type it's in the air travelling to an international destination for a special lady. Hope she likes it. I used Ricks HOLLY BERRY IMAGE available in his Zibbet store. Coloured her up with copics then fussy cut her out. I then cut a red and white mat using my brother scan n cut. Ran the white mat through a swirly embossing folder and then highlighted all the swirls with glitter.Rubber Stamped a sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock, then matted onto a piece of red cardstock and rounded the corners. Attached with 3d foam to the card base. Miss Holly Berry was then given the glitter treatment also on the frills and sleeves. Then attached to the card base with 3d foam to make her pop off the card. A Red organza bow was then attached as the finishing touch.

Zombies love presents too..............

Hi all, I thought I'd share my latest creation as part of the Rick St Dennis EDT. As the holiday season is fast approaching I thought I would get things rolling with a creepy card for Christmas. Rick has some fabulous creepy images in his ZIBBET AND ETSY Stores as well as cute too, but I'm partial to the creepy kind to fulfill my passion for art on the Dark Side.. I used  Rick's Digi image I Love My Prezzies ( it appears Zombies like prezzies too ) as the main focal point of the card. Coloured her up with copics and fussy cut and mounted onto black cardstock to make her pop. I then die cut a panel using one of my spellbinders dies to mount the sentiment which was composed in photoshop. Attached to a piece of grungy background paper with the corners rounded and inked to a pleasing manner. This was then attached to a black 300gsm cardstock base. The focal image was then placed in a pleasing manner using 3d foam tape to lift her off the page a little to make her stand out. A black satin bow was then attached to the side to finish off. Quite pleased how this one turned out.

November's Progressive Challenge with Rick. Part One Take , Take 2.

 
 
Hi all,
WOW - What a month so far!!

I'm sure that most of you are aware that we've been having a DT call during October. Well, we had a tough time choosing from the fabulous makes that were entered, but the lucky few that were chosen are now on board. Some of those lucky ladies are going to be sharing their first projects today, some on 1st December for part 2. Others - you have to go and visit our facebook group to see what delights they have conjured up.
 Whilst you're there, Aletha has posted about the Facebook Art Contest - that's anything goes as well. Check it out!

The full EDT listings can be seen in the sidebar of the Sparkle and Glitter Blog if you want to go visit and leave some luuurrrvvveeee.

I hope you're enjoying the crisp weather. Just right for cozying up in your craft room with a Rick St Dennis image, from either the Etsy or Zibbet shops, and get making something for our progressive challenge.
Part 1 is "Anything Goes", for part 2 you have to use a specified image, and all that enter this month will get it FREE. It will be sent out towards the end of the month. You will need to enter your projects in the linky here to qualify.

 
I'm Super excited to announce that I am one of the lucky one's to be chosen for Rick's EDT. To say I'm a happy lady is a no brainer really. I have been collecting Rick's images for awhile now for my own personal pleasure and am excited to be showcasing them here for you all.
Below is my make using Knimbleknees Gherkin Christmas Elf Digi Stamp. As soon as I saw him I had to have him to create a countdown to Creepmas Block Calender. This was created using my Brother Scan N Cut. Then assembled and Mr KnimbleKnees Coloured, Fussy cut and then attached strategically in place. Quite please how this turned out and my Grandsons can't stop playing with it LOL.
