One more Tim Box Macabre Style

Last year I made a Christmas box, and I left the back side blank so that when I got into the Halloween boxes this year I could add Halloween to the flip side of the box. Christmas will be facing out for December, and Halloween will be facing out for the other 11 months :-)

these are the compartments close up

and the finished project.

My pride and Joy, the Apothescary. When I saw the new line from Moxxie, I HAD to make something out of it. So I combined my passion for Halloween, and the Tim Holtz Letter Tray and made this little gem. I took some close ups of the different boxes. This was so much fun to make!!

In the Attic

I almost forgot to post my last tag! This one was inspired by things you would find in the attic. The bird cage die and dress form die combined made a great combo. And don't you just want to pull the chain on the lightbulb? By coloring it with a Copic it looks like it is on !

Dead on Arrival

So my goal was to take ordinary objects, and make them into something creepy, hence the every day car. So how to flip the switch? Add a skeleton driver and a coffin. Easy lol.

the background stamp is stampendous crowscape, and the skeleton is a Timmy Stamp and the car is a Timmy die.

The Raven, Nevermore

This Raven just screamed to be put in a cage, and of course he would say "Nevermore"

All the dies are Tim Holtz, as well as the embossing folder. Some crackle over the nevermore tag, and Timmy Distress inks and stickles.

Black Roses

For this tag I wanted it to look like wallpaper, with the chandelier hanging. The roses were the center of attention in the "room"

the chandelier is stamped with the new BoBunny stamp, and then shrunk! Worked like a charm!

Severed Hand

I can hear the questions now, why is there a severed hand in this post? Well because, the pooled blood that you see, is none other than Red Utee! Yes there are other uses for it! The result was perfect!

I melted the Utee in the melting pot, and just poured :-)

It's a Ghoul

Haha the mind works in mysterious ways, the second I saw this buggy from Kaiser... I knew I was going to do something creepy... I had all these sayings laid that I was trying to twist into a spooky line, and my daughter came up with It's a Ghoul"!! Loved it and made the tag :-)

I embossed the top of the carriage with a spider web so it had that folded look. then some glitter, Tim distress ink, goosebumps and tulle, and I had a marvelous ghoulish tag :-)

Ok, last time I blogged here I said 'wow it's been 5 months.... blah blah blah... " now I look and it's been 8 months!!! Oh my gosh! it's time to get back on it!!

Last year Tim Holtz did the 12 tags of Christmas... this year I thot I'd do the 6 tags of Halloween, lol no reason why 6..... but here is the first Tim inspired tag.... the Graveyard,

nothing that an embossing folder, some Tim distress inks, and dies and a shrink tombstone can't do!!
