Well we made it - Day 31 of 31DOH!!
Today I am going to share the Halloween makes
 my daughter and I have made over the last couple of days...

First little fridge magnets - small squares of mdf stamped with Black Stazon and coloured with Color Burst powders. They were distresses with 'black soot' around the edges and a small strip of magnetic tape was added on the back...


For these two we used some tiny SU halloween stamps.




I made some Halloween Bunting using fabric that had been in my stash for years ...remember that pumpkin stuff  I used the other day? Sophie helped me hang it...













We decided it looked better on the fence rather than the wall...


Next candles...


Here we stamped an SU witch stamp on white tissue and then adhered it to the candle using my heat gun. I place the image in place, wrap it with greaseproof paper and then apply the heat...
One image was attached 'right side in' to make the witch face the other way!



Here I used one layer of a commercial serviette trimmed to size and attached using the heat gun.


 Finally pumpkin lanterns...the picture shows my Mum, my Dad, Sophie and me...



Happy Halloween!

​Another week gone and just one day left...!!

Today my 31DOH post features, to start, my make for Left of Center...
Challenge #154 starts this weekend at LOC  "Halloween"


Our sponsor is Bloobel Stamps




 I have made two ATCs using the images  Hubble Bubble and Sweet Zombie,
 coloured with Promarkers and cut out.




The bases are scraps of purple card matted with some 'Wrinkle Free Distress'.




I then added the images and skeletons (earrings!)








 Looking forward to seeing your makes in the LOC challenge!

I have another couple of ATCs to show you today too...



  
These started with scraps of purple card then neon yellow. The next layer is watercolour paper printed with an SU stamp from 'Lovely as a Tree' - and then with added colour from Color Burst powders. Find more details here.
I then overstamped with small stamps from SU - a witch and a cat.
Finally I added bat confetti.



I will link this to Wicked Wednesday #233

Happy Hopping!

So sorry about the last few days - I was away with my daughter,
 with little or no internet...
Anyway here's the finish of my Hag book...
Yesterday you saw the left hand side of my last spread...



The final embossing folder I have used is Cuttlebug's Spots and Dots.
The right hand side has another Teri Sherman image and a Tattered Lace Halloween Cat die cut.
The cat was cut from some Indian handmade paper. 
I also added three sparkly spiders.

The final page has a Bugaboo image Bug Skull Fence coloured with Promarkers.
I added a few skull confetti too...


​This picture shows the back and front...




Final reminder of my 31DOH giveaways - if you would like a surprise in the post do join in...

Happy Hopping!!

The next few pages are scheduled as I will be away for a few days - I do hope they will post OK!!
I hope to catch up with my commenting as and when!!

But before I carry on here is my daughter with a start
 to some more Halloween decorations...




For the last few days I have just added the next page of my Hag book.

The poem I have used is by Robert Herrick (1648).
Today we are onto the last spread...these are the bases


The left hand side uses the Cuttlebug Forest Branches embossing folder.
I have then added the lines of the verse and some Tattered Lace die cuts.




The idea was that 'The storme will arise' from the cloud. And then the dog is howling at the moon...

More tomorrow!!

Happy Hopping!

As the page is turned it is back to pink vellum with witches stamped on them.




 It amused me to think the monster's lair was under the bed!!
The image is from


and is called  Monster Under The Bed - coloured with Promarkers and some paper-piecing.



More tomorrow!!
