Each day I am hoping to share 'something Poe' I have made in the past ...


and something I have made for this hop...


So first, four old favourites:



1. Using Smeared ink Digis:


2. Using Ike's Poe Skull Bust and a triple stamped moon (Kitchen Sink)

3. Using Ike's Lenore and Poe Paper Background 
plus an unknown rubber stamp from my stash
4. From a Creepmas album, using Smeared Ink rubber stamp
 and a vintage Santa (again unsure of the origin)

So now onto the last part of my wooden whisky box - the inside...


Again I covered top and bottom with a paper from a Tim Holtz idea-ology paper stash, and then added an assortment of elements again using images printed on a grunge/steampunk paper from Imagine That Digistamps and matted on black card.



Again I have used Ike's Poe's Death bed



Poe is from Vera Lane Edgar Allan Poe


Someone mentioned we seem to be having a lot of ravens this year - so here's a cat - my favourite cat digi from Smeared Ink.


Next we have Leigh's Oddleigh Raven Nevermore


The next ATC is stamped with archival ink using a Smeared Ink rubber stamp
 (sadly a company who no longer trade)


And last but not least I have Ike's Raven Poe


I attached these to the inside of my box...




Quite pleased with my box!!





Happy Crafting!








Ike's World Challenges #104


Today I would like to show you my make for Ike's World Challenges!

The current Challenge (#104) is Anything New

and this is my midway post...


If you pop over to Ike's World Challenges you will find there is a super freebie to pick up...


Party Pug


You might like to use this for the Challenge - but your image is free choice!

I decided to make a New Year card and because we have had a fair bit of snow have used Snowman.

SNOWMAN

I printed this, coloured it with a variety of markers and cut it out.
I the added it to my card blank which had a layer of DP from Tim Holtz Idea-ology paper stash.


I printed the words, punched them out and added then with a bit of faux stitching round the edges using a fineliner.

I had used two blue card blanks to form the card beacuse inside I wanted 2018 to pop up...



I cut the numbers with Apple Blossom Dies from Craftstash.





Look forward to seeing your creations in Challenge #104...


Happy Crafting!

The following framed canvas I made 2 years ago - it still takes pride of place in my craft room...

So continuing with my wooden whisky case...


You remember I covered top and sides with a paper from a Tim Holtz idea-ology paper stash, distressed round the edges with black soot.



Today I want to show you the images on the top. I printed these on a grunge/steampunk paper from Imagine That Digistamps and matted them on black card. I then used a variety of markers to add colour.


In my ATC tag book last year this was one of the ATCs I made:
The ATC uses Ike's Poe Death Bed, ripped out, and coloured with a variety of fineliners.
I layered it onto blue card and black card. I then added ribbon, beads and a bow.



I am using this same image for one of the 3 elements on the top of the box.


On the right of this I have an ATC using a sentiment from Vera Lane Edgar Allan Poe


And to the left - of course - Leigh's Oddleigh Edgar Allan Poe


Here's the box so far...



I added a heart embellishment which just seemed to be destined for this box...


See the last bit tomorrow...

Happy Crafting!

and something I have made for this hop...

So first, last year's make was an ATC 'Tag Book" - each sleeve decorated and containing a pullout ATC.








I remember using images from Lost Coast, IkesArt and stamps from Smeared Ink.

So now onto today's makes...


My husband and I love the auctions - especially when the lot is a job lot of surprises!
We have come away with all sorts of goodies for very modest outlay...

Recently we found in a box of assorted kitchen wares a couple of wooden whisky cases (empty of course!)



Lovely boxes - in the eyes of a crafter! 
And I discovered they were just the right size for ATC storage!

Anyway, first I covered top and sides with a paper from a Tim Holtz idea-ology paper stash, distressed round the edges with black soot.



I then started decorating this with images printed on a grunge/steampunk paper from
 Imagine That Digistamps and matted on black card.


The raven and sentiments are from Vera Lane Edgar Allan Poe


The next set are stamped with archival ink using Smeared Ink stamps (sadly a company who no longer trade)



I attached these to the sides of my box...






See some more tomorrow...

Happy Crafting!
