Odds 'n' ends...

Here's a real hodgepodge of things to post today. I did the cards this morning, but the little Frankenstein goodie box was done awhile ago. Instructions for it are found here: http://chicnscratch.typepad.comstampinacademy/2008/09/frankenstein-bo.html

This one is a lift from one I saw on the Creating Keepsakes website this morning at 3:30 AM, when I couldn't sleep. Something about it just appealed to me, so I had to recreate it (after I finally went back to bed and slept a little longer).

What I used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Everlasting B&Ts and Evensong B&T
Desert Sand C/S
CTMH Twill ribbon
Cranberry brads
Definitely Decorative Pines (SU)
Many Merry Messages (SU)
Pop dots (other)
Black, New England Ivy and Chocolate inks

This one I started by using a 1" circle punch for a mask for the moon, and onto a 4 x 5 1/4" piece of White Daisy C/S I brayered on Crystal Blue ink. I took off the mask, then I stamped on the trees and then the moose in Black ink. I tore a piece of scrap cardstock and masked off the sky and sponged on the Black ink for the ground. Then I took a different sponge and sponged on Star Spangled Blue ink, leaving the lighter shade of Crystal Blue showing more around the moon. Lastly, I took a white gel pen and tried my best to highlight where the moonlight would shine.

What I used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Black and White Daisy C/S
Black, Crystal Blue and Star Spangled Blue inks
1" circle punch (other)
Definitely Decorative Pines (SU)
Uniball Signo White Gel Pen (SU)
Sponges (other)

Isn't he CUTE? And he is sooooo easy to make. Just click on the link above... you'll be able see a video tutorial on how to make him.
What I used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):

Scissors (to hand-cut the hair)
Hole punch (other)
Black pipe cleaner (other)
