~~~Stamp Set Reveal ~day 5~~~

Hi Y'all!!! Today is the final day for the stamp set release !! I hope y'all have had as much fun as I have !! For my projects today, I used the Happy Hauntings stamp set...I just love it !! This stamp set, as well as the 3 others, Friends and Neighbors, Happy Fall and  Candy Corn Kisses can all be found here! I think my dark side was showing when I made these projects...I didn't know I had it in me ! lol I used more tulle on these projects as well as some flowers that I made. This was my 1st attempt at making charms too and I had lots of fun creating them!! ( Except for the small jump rings...oh they dealt me fits !! ) I hope you enjoy looking at all my projects as well as those created by the entire DT over at!
Here is the recipe for my projects:
Tombstones, Coffins ,Tree , Card and bat were all created using the happy Hauntings cart.
I purchased the skeletons from the Dollar Tree and I did have to do some surgery on one.
The metal frames are from Tim Holtz, as well as the hanger thingys for the charms.The spider and skeleton charms were purchased at Hobby Lobby, as well as the beads, Lost and Found paper collection by My Minds Eye, the tulle, satin and organza cloth for the flowers and the center bling for the one flower on the small coffin. I also got the lace and black cording from HLtoo. The bling swirls( Recollections) and other charms, (Industrial Chic), were purchased at Michael's. I added brads to the coffin and the small roses, from my stash.
I hope you enjoy my creepy projects......Happy Haunting!!!!
 I am so crazy!!! I forgot to tell y'all that I will be giving away the Happy Hauntings Stamp Set to one lucky girl!!!!

ok....where do I begin?! I am amazed. The bling, the charms, the lace, the tulle, the post-op skeletons and those tiny jump rings....I had to enlarge every picture you posted so I didn't miss anything. I am stunned at the level of talent you show here. I mean, I knew you were great, but this is so different from anything you have posted so far, and you absolutely knocked it out of the park (or should I say graveyard). I love the colors you chose for your tombstone boxes...I would have never thought to go light...and they are the skeleton leg wrapped in under the tulle layer. My mouth is hanging open. I am so impressed!


Great spooky projects! I love all the fun webbing! Thanks for sharing your wonderful creations :)Amy

Awesome projects, Joy!! They are spooky and beautiful!! I love all of the amazing details you have added and the lace from Hobby Lobby! Wow!!!!


I am loving your creepy creepy Halloween projects... the creepier the better! I love the spider webs that you added to everything! That gives me a new idea that I never would have thought of adding to my projects. Thanks so much for the inspiration. The coffin was my favorite... very spooky! Excellent, amazing job!

Welcome to My World

This sight is dedicated to the art of card making....of which I am addicted ! I began making cards a few months before Dan was deployed to Iraq.I wanted to make sure he had a new card to open every day, so I used BlueMountian.Co and created him 2 months worth of cards !About a year ago I saw that famous infomercial for a little bug called a Cricut.Well, after watching it numerous times, I HAD to have it...and I ordered it!!!Then I found the Cricut Message Board and I hit pay dirt!!! I was, and still am so inspired by some of the talented women on that board!I have to give them credit for making me the card maker that I am today!!!
Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart!
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards, as much as I enjoy making them!!!
