Now on to the projects!  I'm going to show you some Petite Places: Spook Manor projects first, but before I do, I have a video that I put together that shows how to assemble the little spooky house. 

 

 

My first project of the day is a jar filled with eyeball gum balls, topped off with an adorably spooky dome created with the Petite Places: Spook Manor set.  Spook Manor is a crooked little old house that can be embellished with all sorts of little details from the set, including ghosts that can be tucked into the window openings, a spooky tree, jack-o-lanterns, bats, a wrought iron fence, and even a a little trick-or-treater.

I  created my scene and then filled my dome with some Terra Textures and confetti which was cut using the Shaker Shapes: Pumpkin die collection.

 Here's another angle so you can see the details a little better.

The tag tied to the jar was cut using the tag die that's included in my new Make It Market Mini Kit: Halloween Pin-Ups, as is the sentiment that was stamped on it.  You'll see lots more of that kit a bit later in this post!

Just like all of the other Petite Places sets, Spook Manor is designed so that you can use it on flat projects like cards and tags, as well as the 3D items like the domes.  Here I used just the flat version of the house, diecut from black cardstock, to create some fun halloween tags.

I also used the wrought iron fence from the Spook Manor die collection and one tree layer from the new Scene It: Hallows Eve die collection.  These tags were super quick and easy to put together. The black diecut silhouettes were all layered over Tag Sale #4 diecuts, which were inked in spooky night sky shades.  The sentiments were stamped using the Friendship Jar Fall Fillers set and heat embossed with Zing powder.

Up next I decided to pull out the previously released Shaker Shapes: Snow Globe die collection to create a spooky snow globe shaker card.  I used the Spook Manor flat house along with all three layers of the new Scene It: Hallows Eve dies.  

Spooky-snow-globe

I added lots of ink blending to the background using Winter Wisteria/Royal Velvet on the top and Summer Sunrise/Orange Zest on the bottom.  I stamped some bats from the Petite Places: Spook Manor set onto the top portion using Royal Velvet ink and I stamped the Background Basics: Wrought Iron in Orange Zest along the bottom.  The snow globe is filled with glitter and tiny shapes cut with the Shaker Shapes: Pumpkin die.  The sentiment on the little label is from Tiny Treats: Halloween.

The Petite Places: Spook Manor doesn't have to be limited to Halloween!  When done up in other colors with different accessories, it can look like a charming little farm house.  Here I created a little wrap that would be perfect for presenting a house warming gift.  The house was done in Harvest Gold with a Terracotta Tile roof.  I added the little window details, diecut from white cardstock.

New-home-globe2

For filler I used the autumn leaf confetti die from the Shaker Shapes: Pumpkin die.  When cut from white cardstock the wrought iron fence looks more like a picket fence.  I adhered everything to a Scene It: Doily Tag base and topped it off with a clear dome.  I added a "happy new home" sentiment from the new Keep It Simple: New Home set, stamped onto a Double Ended Banner diecut

And of course the new Scene It: Hallows Eve dies can take on a more fall-ish look too when the colors and accessories are changed up.  Here I cut the tree layers from kraft cardstock and added some leaf confetti to create a pretty fall ornament.

Autumn-ornament2

I used the Scene It: Skyscapes dies to cut the cloud layer and sponged some Aqua Mist ink to add a little color.  The sentiment is from the Friendship Jar Fall Fillers set...the little sentiments in that set are the perfect size to fit on the hill in the Scene It: Hallows Eve set.

Next I have a fun little card made with the new Shaker Shapes: Candy Corn die.  What's more fun than a jumbo candy corn shape that can be dressed up with all sorts of different faces and accessories?  There are bits and pieces to make it into a cat, a bat, a frankenstein, or just a simple smiling face.  There is a bow that can be used as a bowtie or a hair bow.  Here I turned my candy corn into a sweet kitty.
Sweet-and-spooky
 
I diecut all of the pieces from white cardstock and then just layered them on top of each other and sponged with Orange Zest and Summer Sunrise inks, using a couple of sticky notes to mask off the sections as I went along.  I filled each section with confetti cut with the candy confetti dies included in the set, along with a little glitter of each color.  Diecutting the sectioned candy corn from the adhesive foam sheets make it super easy to create the separate sections.  I sponged some Hibiscus Burst ink onto the background and added some candy confetti which I colored with my Copics.  The "sweet & spooky" diecut sentiment is also from the Shaker Shapes: Candy Corn set.

Next up I have a bunch of projects featuring my new Make It Market Mini Kit: Halloween Pin-Ups. This kit is filled with all of the things you'll need to put together some quick and easy treats and more!  The cute little halloween characters were designed to embellish clothespins, perfect for clipping to halloween treats, party favors, decor and more.  The elements can be used on cards and tags too, of course.

My first project is a set of treat bags - there are some colorful glassine bags included in the kit as well.  These came together SUPER quick!  I diecut the pre-printed elements and just adhered them to the clothespins and clipped the pre-printed/diecut tags to each, along with a bit of orange and black baker's twine, also from the kit. 

Pin-up-treats1

The frankenstein has little hands that can be attached with a bit of foam adhesive.  Each character also has a coordinating sentiment that fits on the oval tag die, also included in the kit...there are pre-printed sentiment tags too, that can be diecut for quick and easy projects.

Pin-up-treats2

There's a skeleton, frankenstein, dracula, and witch boots...

Next up I decided to turn a set of clothespins into a cute magnet set.  Again, the preprinted elements made this really quick and easy, but you could stamp them with the stamps included in the set, too.

Magnets1

I put a small magnet on the backside of each clothespin and lined them all up in one of the nugget tins.  I tied the whole works with a bit of baker's twine and added a tag, which was diecut with the tag die from the kit and stamped with a sentiment from the Friendship Jar Fall Fillers set.

The elements from the kit aren't limited to embellishing clothespins...they're fun for cards and such too.  Here I used the witch legs along with the new Cover Plate: Night Sky.  I diecut the cover plate from Summer Sunrise cardstock and layered it over a panel of linen cardstock which was sponged with Winter Wisteria and Royal Velvet ink.  

Witch-leg-card

 

I diecut the legs and stamped them with the striped image using Orange Zest ink.  I diecut the boots and stamped them with Royal Velvet ink and added a few tiny stars to the tips using the little stars from the cover plate die.  I added a sprinkling of diecut candy from the Shaker Shapes: Candy Corn die. The sentiment is from the Pin-Ups Mini Kit.

My next card uses Frank...I diecut three of them and layered them over a Journal Card 5 diecut.  I wrapped some twine around the top and attached a pre-printed tag.

Franken-tastic

 

I layered the whole works over another layer of linen cardstock and then some Limeade Ice polka dot paper.

Next I used just the little heads and hands to create this candy corn card.  I positioned them to look like they're peeking out from the candy corn sections.  The "eat, shriek and be scary" sentiment is also from the kit. 

Pin-up-candy-corn

 

I layered everything over a panel of Royal Velvet polka dot paper.  The "happy halloween" sentiment embossed in white along the bottom is from Lizzie's new Haunted Headstones set.

Well, we've made it to my last project for today...are you still with me?  This one uses Lizzie's new Haunted Headstones set, along with a bunch of other new goodies.  I diecut and stamped several of the headstones and lined them up in the opening of the Cover Plate: Night Sky die.  I stamped one of them with the funny Dracula sentiment.  I took the little Dracula from the Halloween Pin-Ups kit and positioned him peeking from behind the headstone...doesn't he look like he's up to no good?  :-)

Halloween-dracula-2

 

I also layered the moon from the Scene It: Hallows Eve die over the cover plate.  I trimmed the hill portion away so I could just use the moon.  A couple of diecut bats from the Haunted Headstones die collection and a sentiment from the set finish it off.
