Halloween Luminarias

A big thanks goes to The Funkie Junkie for her idea to make Halloween Luminarias!!! I had these Halloween images from Graphics Fairy for a bit now, and I didn't know what to do with them!
I made these for Drunken Stampers- 39 Halloween!
GC 75 Redhead Challenge- Arches over at Gingersnap Creations
and for Simon Says Stamp and Show ... Something Spookay!
The cardstock is by Martha Stewart, and so is the bat punch. I used 2 On The Edge Dies by Tim Holtz. Images are from Graphics Fairy 

I cut the cardstock frames into arches. I like the little fence that goes around the bottoms :)

Thanks for looking!!

Sookie's Apron

Friday I finished sewing my Halloween costume! I'm going to be Sookie Stackhouse- from True Blood.
The whole thing only cost $4.00! The logo I got from the web. I still need to iron it, LOL :)
Thanks for looking!


I made this tag for the Gingersnap Creations GC74 Spicy Supply Challenge- Versamark. I also needed a tag for a card order I just finished, so the challenge worked out perfectly for this!

I used the stamps Artistic Etchings and snowflakes from Stampin Up  I also used Faded Jeans and Broken China Distress Inks to color the tag. I used the Versamark on the snowflakes and around the edge of the tag with shimmer embossing powder. I also used Versamark on the Eifel Tower and then added black embossing powder. The Eiffel Tower matches the cards.
Here's the tag on the card package.

These are the cards that are in the package :)

I used my Distress It All on this pink/crumbcake card. I like making distressed/aged papers :) I also used Notably Ornate stamps from Stampin Up on this one.

I used the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Folder with my Big Shot machine on this card. I love the red/black color combination.
 I lifted this blue card from my friend Kim. This was one of the cards she designed for her Stamp Camp. The newspaper print is from Old NewsPapers {CU} by MissVivi from I printed out the newspapers on cardstock.
Thanks for looking!!

Fall Candle Holder

This is my project for the challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show ... Anything But a Card!
Add caption
I found the candle holder at a thrift store for $2.99! I used the Tattered Leaves Sizzix die by Tim Holtz on old book pages to make the leaves.  I used a bunch of different Tattered Angel glitter sprays including Key Lime & Pomegranate. I also used Distress Reinkers Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Dired Marigold to make sprays. I also used a bunch of Stampin Up reinkers to make my own glitter sprays. I sprayed the ribbon with Tattered Angel's Pomegranate Glitter Spray. I think it's my new fav color!
