“Scare” Mail!

OK, my project today is more cute than scary but I can’t resist a good pun! Here is a card and paper mailbox made with the 3-D mailbox SVG/Printable template set and Creepy Crow, Cute Halloween and Vintage Halloween Labels stamps from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff:

Don't you want to start your Halloween crafting? This was loads of fun to make!

The card was done by first coloring the swirled crow with 3 shades of purple Copic markers then I rubber stamped a row of trees in the background with clear embossing ink, I stamped the ground area with a large crackle background stamp (with the clear ink as well) then I simply rubbed colored chalk over the background. Notice how the color stuck to the clear ink, nifty huh, and since the ink is clear it does not show up on the crow. I love fast and easy techniques!

To make the moon in the packground I simply punched a circle and placed it on my stamped panel before I used the chalk and applied the chalk over it. Easy peasy!

Here is a peek at the 3-D mailbox closed, you could fill it wish candy, cards or other favors:

I used my Cricut and Sure Cuts a Lot (SCAL) software to cut the template. (SCAL is on sale for $59.95 -regularily $75- right now BTW) Assembling the box is easy but the first time it can be a bit tricky so I made a video to show you how, hope you like it 🙂

Well, that was fun, wasn’t it? Here are the sets I used in this project:

I Bet you are looking for your freebie, huh, well here you go, enjoy 🙂

Halloween in August {and a freebie!}

***We are having some technical difficulties with the freebie link this week, while I sort it out you can download this weeks freebie here, Please be sure to visit the design team to see what you can make with it 😉 ******

One of my friends took her family camping last weekend and the campground was having Halloween in August, wow what a cool idea I thought, and with my new Halloween stamps I am good to go:

digital Stamps: Lindsay's stamp Stuff, Cardstock: Georgia Pacific (white), DCWV (orange), Bazzil (purple), Paper co (black), Colored Pencils: Prismacolor, Rubber stamps: Inkadinkado, InqueBotique, Tool: Scor-Pal, Cricut+SCAL software, Crop-a-dial

digital Stamps: Lindsay's stamp Stuff, Cardstock: Georgia Pacific (white), DCWV (orange), Bazzil (purple), Paper co (black), Colored Pencils: Prismacolor, Rubber stamps: Inkadinkado, InqueBotique, Tool: Scor-Pal, Cricut+SCAL software, Crop-a-dial

On this card I used A Cute Witch and Harry the Spider digital stamps from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff. I colored them with colored pencils then blended them with a blender pen that I had filled with goo-gone. Then I used a star background rubber stamp (Inque Boutique) and clear embossing ink to stamp around the witch and used a pom-pom to dab chalk over that to make the purple star design in the background.

I used my cricut and SCAL software to cut the spiderweb edge card (you can download that svg file below) then used spray adhesive to glue it to a 6″x12″ sheet of Bazzil cardstock, then I trimmed around the web. The cardstock backing adds color while making the card more sturdy. I embossed “Trick or Treat” (inkadinkado) with white on a black scrap, mounted it with orange and adhered it to the card and added eyelets for decoration. I cut the stars with my Cricut and SCAL software then gave them a coat of glitter glue.
