Enter at Your Own Risk

Hi everyone! I'm here to share a  project I created for Eileen Hull's Trick or Treats Art with Heart Challenge and Sizzix Halloween Challenge.
I used the Sizzix Scoreboards XL Die Box Square and the Sizzix Bigz XL Die Country Cottage 3D to create this spooky cute haunted house. 

I decorated an empty spool which had lace wound on it with cardstock, chipboard alphabets, a ghost and moss.

I added a spiderweb sticker from Pink Paislee and scream verbiage that I cut from some scrapbook paper. I also cut from cardstock On The Edge Die Iron Gate which I glued around the top edge of the ATC block along with some moss.

The roof is cut from glitter chipboard and I adhered vellum inside the little house for the windows. The oval Halloween saying is a free image that I got last year from Ephemera Vintage Garden.

The witch is a cut a part which is from the Echo Park's Chillingsworth Collection. Love this collection!!! 

You can open the little house up and add a little tea light too. I apologize for the photos not being the best but I had no sunlight and it was late in the day when I was able to do my photo shoot but I hope you liked what I shared :-)

There is still a little bit of time to submit your projects to both the Eileen Hull's Trick or Treats Art with Heart Challenge and Sizzix Halloween ChallengeI know I cut it very close this month but I've been busy with magazine calls, repainting the dining room which should have been easy but wasn't…the "popcorn" from the ceiling was coming off as my dad was rolling the paint on. Needless to say we had to scrape the "popcorn" off the ceiling and now there is a fine coat of dust all over everything…can we say yuk?!?!? Tomorrow my parents are coming back to the house and hopefully I will not have any more mishaps…fingers crossed.

If you have any questions please let me know.

Supplies Used:

Robin's Nest: Little Friends Ghost
Chipboard Letters, Cardstock, Scrapbook Paper, Moss, Stickers, Vellum, Black Bead
