ABAC Challenge #4

The sponsor for the 4th Challenge at Anything But A Card is Lili of the Valley and they are giving away a $20.00 gift certificate, YAY!!

Here is my Design Team project for this challenge, a double test tube Halloween treat holder that glows!!  I used the tall box from SVG Cuts One-Piece Boxes kit and substitute the flower cutout for a spider web and covered it inside with vellum.  I joined/merged two 1" circles on the lid to hold the tubes.  For the back I duplicated the box and cut the back panel out and unioned it to the grave bottom from the Gimme Candy Boxes kit, then glued it to the back of the box, (it totally looks like one piece).  For the grave front I did a print and cut. 

The battery tealight is placed sideways in order for the test tubes to fit in, it works great!!

The stamps are from Unity's Too Cute to Spook set.
The Witch Hazel flair is from Paper Play Studio.
The spider is from SVG Cuts Party on Elm Street kit.
The Twine is Orange Licorice Trendy Twine.
Pattern Paper is Echo Parks Chillingsworth Manor digital paper.
Martha Stewart Test Tubes.

I think these would look great for a Halloween party all lit up on a table for your guests to take home!!

Don't forget to enter, just remember anything but a card!

I added this to the linky party over at Craft-O-Maniac, stop on over and see all the other wonderful entries.

Christmas Candy Cottage Ornament

The luminary house in SVG Cuts new kit Happy Thanks makes a great Christmas Ornament too.  I love to make new ornaments every year and I think this will look so pretty on my tree.  I added the shutters and tree which was made using the evergreen from the 3D Wintergreens kit.  I poked a hole in the top and knotted some Christmas Candy Cane Trendy Twine so it can hang.

SVG Cuts New Kit Happy Thanks!!

World Card Making Day 2012

I was going to work on something else today but I just had to make a card since it's World Card Making Day!!  I've been working on so many fall and Halloween projects I thought a Christmas card would be a nice change.  So here is my very simple and very easy to reproduce Christmas card!!

I used the sleigh from SVG Cuts Santa's Visit kit and the bow is from the Rockin Around the Christmas Tree collection.  The white lace I unioned the free doily edge strip from SVG Cuts to a rectangle.  The pattern paper is Echo Parks Very Merry Christmas digital kit from Jessica Sprague.  I sized the paper down to 6" pieces so the patterns would be smaller.

Trendy Twine's October Challenge!

I just bought my first spools of Trendy Twine at Annie's Paper Boutique and I'm lovin' them!  Besides the 6 spool set I picked up the Orange Licorice, Orange Truffle and Christmas Candy Cane limited editions to have for the upcoming holidays.  I noticed on the Trendy Twine's blog a challenge for the month of October just started so I put together this candy corn witches box using the Orange Licorice.  Here is the link to the challenge, Boo! Too Cute To Spook!

The candy corn box is from SVG Cuts Fall Harvest kit, the witches hat is from the Gimme Candy Boxes, broom is from Spooky Cuties and the hands are from December Gifts kit.  The eyes, nose and teeth I just made in eCal software, the whole project was cut using my Sizzix Eclips.  Papers are scraps from different collections and I used a piece of black burlap for the brim of the hat.

Little secret compartment in the witches hat!

And more goodies!!
