Halloween Layout

Today is my second post for SinCity Stamps.
August is a little early for Halloween but we are
doing a cross promotion with Altered Pages 
 This half of the month for them is all about Halloween.


I am not much of a Halloween gal but I love the images from Altered Pages .





Supplies:
Sin City Stamps: 
Altered Pages
white and orange acrylic paint
home made texture paste
drywall tape
paper from my stash.
I also used an older sketch from Sketchabilities.

I chose my paper and all the goodies I wanted for my layout.


I added any paint that I wanted... spattered on the patterned paper
I also painted the gears and outlined all Halloween collage papers.

I added dry wall tape and then added homemade texture paste.
Then I decided to peel off dry wall tape.
I added paint and black gesso.



I then started to layer.
The envelope first.. then the collage papers.
I added the gears last. 
I added a tag that I will add a picture to.
I love the depth of this layout.






Thank you for stopping by today.
I really enjoyed making this Halloween layout.

Mausoleum Gift Card Holder With Altered Pages

Hello everyone, and welcome back to the second half of our monthly partnership with Altered Pages.  For the next two weeks, both design teams will be creating Halloween themed projects using products from both Sin City Stamps and Altered Pages.  So if you love Halloween, like I do, you won't want to miss all the inspiration from both design teams.

I had a hard time deciding what to make, but then I saw this house-shaped gift card holder die from Eileen Hull.  Instantly, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.  So, in keeping with the genre, I turned that house into a mausoleum.   Oooooh, spooky, right?




Supplies used:

Sin City Stamps:  Halloween Takes Flight stamp set; Halloween Bingo stamp set; Art Journaling with Terri Sproul 2 stamp set;

Altered Pages:  AP-562 The Other Side of Halloween collage sheet; Jet Black StazOn ink pad; Niji Oil Pastels; Scor Tape; Glitz Giant Rhinestones (Raven); Faber-Castell Big Brush Pen (Black); Stickles glitter glue

Other:  Eileen Hull/Sizzix Gift Card Holder-House; chipboard; Cuttlebug rose die, Odorless Mineral Spirits; cotton swab; StazOn Orange Zest; Distress markers

Directions:

Die cut house gift card holder from black chipboard or matboard.  Die cut back panel only from orange card stock.  Adhere to inside back panel.

Print "Greetings at Halloween" collage image onto white paper, trim, and adhere to back piece, centering through door opening.

Lay strips of Scor tape around edges of front inside panel, as shown.
Figure 1
Die cut another gift card holder from kraft card stock.  Separate door from front panel and set rest of die cut aside.  Stamp "Oct. 31" from Halloween Bingo stamp set onto card stock with Orange Zest StazOn ink, edging with black Staz On, as shown.  Remember to stamp it so that when the door is opened, the viewer can read it.
Adhere to door panel on the inside, as shown in Figure 1.

Remove adhesive paper from Scor Tape, close chipboard and adhere front panel to back panel.

Cut door section only from orange card stock. Leave some extra length at the bottom of the door to wrap over fold.  Stamp tombstone moon onto center with black ink, color moon with white pencil and the tombstone with gray pencil.

Adhere to front door panel, wrapping extra length over fold at bottom.

Adhere two small strips of the same kraft card stock to cover the fold on either side of the door, as shown.
Stamp brick background with black ink randomly over kraft card stock die cuts, as shown.  Apply yellow and brown oil pastels over brick work, blend with cotton swab dampened with odorless mineral spirits.
Adhere front and back panels, respectively. This will cover those small strips you added earlier.
Front Panel
Back Panel
Die cut one more strip of the orange cardstock to make the roof line on the back panel.
Stamp "Dead Men Tell No Tales" onto orange card stock with black ink, punch with decorative punch, distress edges with black, adhere to front with foam dots.
Die cut 7 roses from black chipboard, adhere to front panel.  Apply Stickles glitter glue in Black Diamond over roses.
Adhere one Glitz rhinestone (bats) onto front.
Stamp skull pot with black ink onto purple scrap cardstock. Fussy cut and adhere to bottom of back panel, as shown.
Stamp flying skeleton onto white card stock, coloring directly onto stamp with Distress ink markers.  Huff before stamping to re-moisten the ink.  Fussy cut and adhere to back panel, as shown.
Stamp small owl with moon onto scrap green card stock with black ink, fussy cut owl only, adhere to back panel, as shown.
Distress ink all edges with Black Soot, and use Big Brush Artist Pen in black around matboard edges.
And here is the complete gift card holder with the front door open.  You can see the beautiful lady inside, waiting to cast a spell on you!
I hope you have enjoyed my project today, and inspired you to get started on your Halloween projects. Both Sin City Stamps and Altered Pages have a wonderful supply of products for all of your creative needs.  I hope you will take a look at their online shops, and please be sure to visit both teams for more fun Halloween projects this month.  

Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful, creative weekend!
