Day 6 of 31

Hello Lovelies, and welcome to another day of 31 days!!!  It is also a Stamp Insanity challenge day!  Today we have challenged you to make anything but a card!  I found these cute little paint cans at AC Moore and I couldn’t pass them up!  I covered it with some Apothecary Emporium Collection from Echo Park and one of their stickers on one side.  Then I used the Hat from Cassandra a SIS image and one of the sentiments from Morgan’s spell set! 
I think this would make cute candy holders!
So head on over and see what everyone else has made for you today!

Day 4 of 31

Hello Lovelies, today I have for you a project I made for one of those little branch trees, you see everywhere during this time of the year.  I used facets and alcohol ink .  Then stamped the spider image onto the flat side of the facets. I made similar charms for a charm swap for ATT yahoo group.  I am making more of these as you read this to decorate my tree!  I will have pictures posted on the last day of my decorations!!  
I also have my original card I made for the Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls blog jump off!!!  Today is the day the blog is live and we have an awesome challenge for you!  Make a project depicting your favorite Halloween movie or book and tell us why!  Give us the background story.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the movie Hocus Pocus… it’s not scary or gory but I freakin love it!

It was my jump off movie into my love of everything witchy!!!  Not to mention awesome actors in the movie!!!  Anyway, I know you have seen this card before but I wanted to explain a little more.  The witches, being sisters, are all dressed in the same color but as each sister is unique so is her outfit.  Each brings their own personality into their outfit.  The “ditzy” Sexy blonde, the normal often overlooked dark haired sister and the oldest, in charge red head!!!  If you haven’t seen this movie you should!!!  Like I said, I LOVE IT!!!

Day 3 of 31

Hello Lovelies,  today I have for you a card I made using a Stamp Insanity image, Morgan’s Spell.  She is just the cutest little witch with her cat hanging on for dear life!!! She is colored with copics, I really love the way her dress turned out! I used stickles on the moon to give it texture cause we all know the moon isn't flat!!!

Remember to go and leave comments on everyone else’s projects!!!  The blog roll is on the sidebar on the right!

Day 2 of 31

Hello Lovelies, today I have to share with you are some tags that I made for a tag swap.  I recently joined a new yahoo group called All Things Tim… and as you may have guessed from the name this is a group for people who love Tim Holtz.. his techniques, products, you name it, if its Tim it’s all good!  So my first swap with them was a 13 Tags of Halloween swap.  So I used some of the techniques for the background with my distress inks.  It’s kinda simple really but I had to make a lot of them!!!  I know that’s no excuse but I am happy with them!!
Let me know what you think and remember to visit everyone on the list on the sidebar to be eligible for that wicked awesome huge prize!!!

Day 1 of 31

Hello Lovelies, Welcome to another year of 31 days of Halloween!!!  There are so many more participants this year than there were last year, almost double!!!  Today I have to share with you 3 projects I have made. One for world card making day which some members of  the Bombshell DT have decided to participate in (this same card is a Sneak Peek at what we will be doing on the Beyond the Burtonesque Blog when it goes live on October 4th!!!)..The 2nd and 3rd projects are recipe cards the Bombshell Dt have made.  We were issued a DT only challenge and that was to make 8x8 recipe cards using our Bombshells!

  The theme our bombshells decided to go with for world card making day is friendship. I colored them all with warm greys, yet each witch has her own personal touch.  Cause we all know that we are unique in our own way!!! 

Here are my recipe cards, I made two of them cause I couldn't decide between the rest!  So head on over to the bombshell blog to find out what you can do to help me win a free stamp set!!!

31 Days of Halloween Rules and Regulations!!!

Wicked Blogger

What You Have To Do:
Wicked Bloggers sign up to make and post one Halloween or Day of the Dead project for each and every day in October. Sign up begins on August 17, 2011 and ends on September 20, 2011. To sign up, add your NAME and BLOG ADDRESS to a comment under this post by September 20, 2011. All Wicked Bloggers will receive a Survival Button at the end of the month to proudly post on their blog.

The Rules:
Wicked Bloggers must post one project each day in October on their blog by 9AM Pacific time in order to qualify for the grand prize drawing. The project must be handmade and stamped with either a rubber or digi stamp. This year we are allowing all digital projects as long as they are the bloggers original digital art.
Wicked Blogger projects must be "new" in that they can't have been posted anywhere before, including on your own blog, other blogs, forums, or other websites. In other words, no re-using previous projects. Bloggers are allowed to combine projects to fit into other scheduled postings; for instance, if you have to post a DT project that day or are following other challenge criteria, if you make your other-scheduled project Halloween themed, it can count for 31 Days as well. However, if you do not make it Halloween or Day of the Dead themed, you will need a separate post for 31 Days.

Bloggers must also post the Wicked Blog list with links to all participating blogs in either their daily posts or on the sidebar of their blog for easy access. The Wicked Blogs list will be posted here by September 25, 2011.

Horrifying Hopper

What You Have To Do:
Hop through each of the Wicked Blogs that are participating and leave a comment on each project. No need to sign up, just start on the first day and work your way through all the blogs. All Horrifying Hoppers will receive a Survival Button at the end of the month to proudly post on their blog.

The Rules:
You must leave a comment on EACH participating blog EVERY day in October to qualify for the grand prize drawing. Your comment should be about the project or something related (i.e.-no "Here's my comment for today" or "I'm here!"...these types of comments won't count!) If you miss a day or a blog, you will still qualify to receive a survival button, but will not qualify for the grand prize drawing.

Sinister Lurker

What You Have To Do:
Some of you can't participate all month long, and that's okay! Only Wicked Bloggers and Horrifying Hoppers are up for the grand prize drawing, but if you can't do either of those you will still have the chance to win some Lurker prizes! We will be hiding scavenger hunt pictures randomly throughout the month on various participating blogs...if you find one on any given day, you will be put in for that day's freebie drawing. It may be a coupon, a free digi, or a Halloween goodie, who knows! We are working on some great sponsor prizes for the scavenger hunt this year, and it will be well worth your time to visit every once in a while.

The Rules:
Scavenger Items will be hidden randomly on the Wicked Blogs, and are not guaranteed to be available every day. You will have to visit blogs to find them. If you find one, you will email and let us know exactly where it was and your name will go into that scavenger item's drawing. Each person who finds the "hidden" picture will get one entry. The drawing for each scavenger prize will be the day after it was posted and winners will be chosen by random number based on who emailed. Wicked Bloggers are able to participate and find scavenger pictures as well, unless it is hidden on their own blog.

Grand Prize Drawing
Doesn't this all sound like fun? I know WE can't wait!!
But wait, I know you are now asking yourself "What huge prize drawing at the end of the month are they talking about?" In addition to some awesome scavenger prizes provided by some pretty amazing sponsors, we are offering up a glorious concoction of 31 Days goodies worth over $300!
