August 2015 Tour de Freaks

freakwelcome2013
It’s time for a Holiday Catalog Preview Tour de Freaks brought to you by the Control Freak Swappers!  I can’t wait to see what everyone came up with using the products in the new Holiday Catalog (customers…you can begin ordering on September 1st!)  You probably just came from Dawn Olchefske’s blog...love her projects, don’t you?

 

I chose to do a Halloween theme for my Holiday Preview projects…I told you I bought ALL the Halloween stamps, didn’t I?  lol!  I can’t resist!  So…I made a decorative Halloween frame with a matching card using the fun set, Witches’ Night!  It goes with the Witching Decor Project Kit that I need to make up soon!

Here’s a closeup of the Halloween Frame:

  • The shadowbox frame is 5 x 7 and I used two patterns from the Happy Haunting DSP in the background, with Black Glimmer Paper to hide the seam.  They were layered on Basic Black cardstock.
  • The Witches’ Night greeting was stamped twice…once with Tuxedo Black Ink and once with Tangelo Twist Ink, then cut with the Lots of Labels Framelits.  The center greeting of the Tangelo Twist one was cut out and adhered over the Black one with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • BOO! from Boo To You Framelits was cut from Black Glimmer Paper and two googly eyes added to the OO!
  • And in the next photo you can see that I wrapped the precut Spider Web Doily around the outside edge of the frame, and hung a spider from Linen Thread from the web.

And the card, I basically used all the same elements, cut down to card size…so you can see the dimension a little better here.

So, do you like?  I’m happy with how they came out and can’t wait to put the frame in my holiday display this year!

Next up on the Tour de Freaks is Judy DiScipio, and I’m sure you’ll love her projects!  Then continue around the tour until you get back here!
