Tour de Freaks Blog Tour

Welcome to my stop on the September 2009 Control Freaks Blog Tour! You should have just come from the blog of Shona Watson.

This is my first month to participate, so please be kind. This month's theme is Halloween, Fall, and Thanksgiving. The leaves haven't started turning colors outside here in Colorado just yet, but that's okay with me, because I have no idea where the summer has gone. [Remember: click on any photo to see it larger.]

My first card was really hard to get a good picture of--it's kind of a dark card, and I used shimmer paint for moonlight. The only problem with that is, the shimmer paint kept reflecting the light off my lamp! I know I'm biased, but with that shimmer paint, it's really gorgeous in person.



There is a little surprise hiding in the grave marker...the grave marker is actually trimmed down from the Two Tags Bigz Die, with a Small Oval Punch layered at the top for the R.I.P. engraving.



This next project uses the Fancy Favor Bigz XL Die, and the Sweet Centers stamp set, with the Sweet Treat Cups.



I wanted to toss in this beautiful little stick candy favor, but I have to tell you that even though I stamped it, it was not my design idea. It's just so pretty, I had to share.



And this last little fella is a special treat box...a coffin made using the Box #2 XL Die, and a pattern I created for the top. Come back on Monday and I'll post the pattern and instructions for you--it's super simple. UPDATE: YOU CAN FIND THE COFFIN BOX PATTERN HERE.


Click the button to the left to go to the next stop on the Tour de Freaks Blog Tour...the blog of JAN TINK! Jan created a darling coffin treat box (on an older blog post, not on this tour) which inspired the one I made above.

Kimberly, your projects are delightful. I love that they are child-friendly. Halloweeny but not too spooky. And the coffin box is just perfect for those little treats to send my nephews!
