Some Halloween Fun

Happy Halloween Everyone!! I hope that you are handing out some candy tonight OR going trick-or-treating with the little ones. 
Halloween is a fun holiday and it can be so much fun to dress up and just "not be yourself" for a day. haha!

For this post I thought I would share some Halloween Projects that I have created this season. Some of these I have shared previously but some you haven't seen before so this should be fun.

For starters I have to share my daughter's make-up that I helped her do. She wants to be a Zombie-ish Prom girl, our goal was to just make her scary looking. Here is the outcome of the make-up I did for her

Fun right?! We think she looks quite spooky

I made this altered jar for a really close friend of mine, I used a napkin that I found at JoAnns on clearance and mode podge for the lid, added some ribbon, a knob on top and some charms, oh and of course candy!! 

Next I made this fun candy box with Eileen Hull's new Vintage Kitchen Stove Die, this die will be available in mid November.
The candy inside makes it complete, don't you think?

Next I made some ATC's and cards for a Halloween themed swap on the Stampotique's group Facebook Page We always have a monthly ATC swap and it has been so great to participate and get ATCs from around the world
Here are the two I created for my partners
All of these fun stamps can be found at Stampotique Originals

The following are some ATCs I got in return, the first one was made by Magda Polakow, Magda is one of the Stampotique Stamp designer's too. She made this really cute little ATC sleeve too

The Second ATC was from Helen Cooke, She sent a little card along with hers

The next Halloween creations were from the Altered Playing Card Challenge, the theme a few weeks ago was Halloween and I made these spooky Altered playing cards 

My next project was for Linda Ledbetter's Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge, The theme that week was "Effects Powders" and I decided to make a postcard for that one, I loved using the powders on my spider and graves! 

For my last project, Stampotique had a new stamp release in September and I wanted to created something Halloween themed with some of the new stamps, I made this Halloween Card using Stampotique's new stamps Skull Moon By New Artist Arwen McCullen
and Connie Shows Off Her Nails by artist Daniel Torrente

Thanks for coming by the blog on this Halloween Day, I hope you have a wonderful, spooky fun Halloween. Don't eat too much candy!!

  5. hello Claudine,

    for the first time since 20 years we are not having a halloween party here in my house in Belgium... kids flew out of the house... daughter is on a movie night with 6 horror movies..! not my cup of tea :)

    I have also a beautiful daughter who likes to play zombie now and then ... you did a great make-up for her !! Incredible how make-up and special fx can change someone...

    Instead of having a party now, I love to see your spooky creations !! The oven is my favorite. Looks intriguing and lots to see and discover.

    happy halloween !
    greetings from belgium
