Happy haunting {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hi, everyone! Another Wednesday means another Mo make from me. This time I’ve made a Halloween project, we’re getting closer and closer, right? Mo has come out with some adorable new images lately, and I totally fell for Esmarelda, isn’t she the cutest little witch ever? I thought so, so I colored her up and made a box to put her on. Okay, so the box was already made, but I did cover it with patterned paper!

My box is just over 5 x 5″, and about 2 3/4″ tall, meaning there’s lots of room for candy inside – half the fun of Halloween, right? I went with bright, in your face Halloween colors and added a couple of bats to embellish slightly.

A closer look at my image. This was such a joy to color, even in orange with lots of pumpkins. I don’t like the taste of pumpkins, but they’re fun to color, and I feel like I struck gold with my orange combo. Doesn’t really happen a lot, as I’m not usually one to color orange, but I love how they turned out.

I put some diecut letters on the side of the lid and the box itself. I diecut the letters from black craft foam and also from the patterned papers and glued them together. Added a few purple Papirdesign enamel dots as a last touch.

Here are the colors I used for my image. I can’t remember the last time I entered a challenge, so I thought I would join the 100th challenge over at Copic Marker Norge with this box. As a former design team member, I just can’t pass up the chance to join in on this milestone, which happens to coincide with their 7th birthday – and their moodboard is perfect for my pumpkin witch.

Boo! {Ett trykk}{Mo’s Dream Team}

Hi everyone! I’ve got a Halloween project for you today for Mo’s Dream Team. It might seem a bit late, but this candy box was published in the October issue of Ett trykk and made some time this summer, so I really wasn’t late at all.

I don’t really make Halloween cards, so I had to think of something else for our Halloween article, and this is what I came up with. It’s a box I made for my niece, for her to put Halloween candy in. She’s a huge fan of purple and lilac, so I made my project a little cute with Mo’s Halloween Fairy and some patterned papers by Maja Design and Papirdesign.

When you open the lid, there’s plenty of room for candy inside.

I made the bat a couple of years ago using black cardstock. I cut the shape of the bat using scissors, then added a thick layer of Wink of Stella trapped underneath an even thicker coat of Glossy Accents. You can sort of see a little of the sparkle in the photo, but it sparkles a lot more in real life. I added a strip that says “scariest of the night” from a piece of Papirdesgn patterned paper, and that’s actually it for my box.

Happy Halloween {Ett trykk}{Mo’s Dream Team}

It might seem that I’m a bit behind, but I made this Halloween treat coffin for the October issue of Ett trykk. Featuring Mo Manning’s It’s all about the Candy! (boy), it even made the cover, which never gets old.

I colored my image with Copics before fussy cutting it, leaving a small white border. The coffin is made from Bazzill covered in Papirdesign patterned papers.

I added the image with foam squares to the lid of the coffin.

I put some cheesecloth at the bottom of the coffin, and added candy in Halloween appropriate colors. By the time I gave the coffin to my nephew, all the candy was gone. Imagine that… 😉

I cut my banners from a Papirdesign patterned paper and added sparkly bats. I made the bats using black cardstock that I cut with a knife/pair of scissors, a coating of Wink of Stella, then a thick layer of Glossy Accents.
