A Cute Little Treat

Getting away from spooky Halloween, I designed this test tube holder using stamps from Oxford Impressions' "Masquerade" collection and orange and black bakers' twine from Trendy Twine.

A Little Halloween Decor

Topanga Vintage Market Haul

Every 4th Sunday is a collector's delight at the Topanga Vintage Outoor Market in Woodland Hills.  Hubby and I went again for the second time, and I found plenty to buy--again, including sterling puffed heart earrings--all for $35.00!  Here's my haul for the day:

Time to Get Spooky!

It's eepy, creepy time.  So that means time for some fun Halloween projects with rubber stamps from Oxford Impressions' two new lines:  Masquerade and Dr. Coffin's Apothecary.  Thanks Suzanne for your fabulous vintage stamp line and for your wonderful support of your fellow artists!

 Test tube holder and bottle made with stamps from Dr. Coffin's Apothecary collection.

Card made with the Masquerade collection

In the card above, a skeleton peers into a window where a crow perches on a withered branch against a background of Poe's "The Raven" printed in gothic type.  Chunky silver glass glitter and small black beads rest below the crow's feet ready to shift when the card is moved.  A framed portrait of Lenore as a child finishes the tale.
