I spent last weekend playing with my cricut and my new cartridge; 'Happy Hauntings'! Here in Australia we don't really celebrate Halloween, but I love all cool and cute Halloween stuff. I decided to make a 3D Haunted House using 'Happy Hauntings'. I also used 'October 31st' and 'Mini Monsters' cricut cartridges for some added detail. As always I wanted to add some cuteness so I decorated the house with Hooked on Craft stamps which I coloured with my copics (as always!). Hooked on Craft has awesome Halloween stamps! I put a little tealight candle inside the house to make the orange windows glow spookily! The whole thing took ages to make but I think it was worth it. I had a lot of fun (....and a little bit of frustration!) in putting this together. I really hope you enjoy this post and please let me know what you think!
I am entering this into the following awesome challenges:
- Copic Oz "All together spooky". Copic Oz is an awesome blog site to get more information on copic techniques.
- iCopic Lover "Black Orange and Purple". icopic Lover is another cool copic blog!
- Copic Creations. "Orange". This is another great site that I found. The design team's copic colourings are great.
- Stamp Something "Something Punchy". Another cool blog! I love my Martha Stewart puches so I have used the awesome "Iron Fence" punch.
Here is the haunted house from the front:
Here are some close ups of the stamps which are coloured with copic markers.
This stamp is Bat Bear (H-0007 Halloween Bears Small) and he is perched on the roof on his glittery web; ready to fly down and scare at a moments notice!:
This is Bear Dracular (H-0008 Halloween Bears Small) who wants to suck your blood!:
This is cute little Bear with a couldron, cooking up a spooky poisonous potion for you! (H-0011 Halloween Bears Small):
This is a cute little Ghost coming out of the chimney (H-0005 Ghosts). I found him the most challenging to colour with my copics because he is mostly white, so I used blue and grey tones to give him a bit of dimension:
Close up of the spooky grave with a mysterious hand! Who's creepy hand could it be?! I hope it is not coming out of the grave!! Eeeekkkk!:
Here are some more pictures of around the house from different angles:
