2017 Halloween Haunted House Tour- Day 3

Hi Friends, and welcome to day three of my annual Halloween haunted house tour! So far, we’ve peeked into my eerie entry and deadly dining room, and today I thought we’d step into the lurid living room and gaze upon my morbid mantel.

As usual, I have lots of photos to share. So let’s dive right into it! I hope you enjoy the tour!


Next week we’ll wrap things up with my spooky sunroom, the last stop on this year’s tour. Just in time for the real spooks to arrive! Until then, hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Giselle the Ghost with Therm O Web


Hi Sweet Friends, happy Wednesday!  I haven’t been posting this much in quite some time, but you all know how I get around Halloween time. There’s just so many projects to share and so little time! Today I have a sweet and silly fabric project up on the Therm O Web blog featuring a bit of mixed media fun using the new Rebekah Meier Art Tape and adorable Halloween fabric from our friends at Blend Fabrics.


This is Giselle the Ghost, and she is all ready for the Monster’s Ball wearing her best designer dress and princess crown and wand. I do believe she may just be the belle of the ball.


I am a huge fan of folk artist, Cori Dantini, and cannot resist her adorable fabric lines. This is the super sweet Best Day Ever collection, which I used to make her dress. I used Therm O Web fleece on the body and hand-painted fabric and enamel dots for the face. Dyed her ribbon with GinaK Designs ink, and gave her a shabby handmade pumpkin to hold.


The crown and star wand were made using the Therm O Web Mixed Media Art Tape. This tape has the perfect flexibility for bending and shaping, with the strength and stability to stand up on its own.

I’ve got a full step-by-step tutorial for how I created the crown using ink and foil up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

2017 Halloween Haunted House Tour- Day 2

Hi everyone, and happy Friday to you! I am so excited to be here today to share the next stop of my annual Haunted House tour. Last week we left off in the dining room, and today… let’s pick up in the entryway.

Now my entryway is not a huge space, but I always seem to manage to pack it pretty full for the different holidays and seasons. Even when I don’t have a ton of things to put out, I can usually scrape up enough to decorate my wee little table and front bench. But of course, that’s not really a problem at Halloween time!


Cause as you all know….
I do go all out for Halloween.


This year, with space becoming more of a premium, I am practicing some new skills. The art of Halloween bundling. And I think I got it! I hope you enjoy!


Hope you enjoyed the tour!

And P.S.-
Since today is Friday the 13th, I couldn’t let the day pass without notice. So to celebrate this most auspicious spooky day, I’m having a little sale in my AudOnes Prims Shop!
Today only, all remaining fall and Halloween prims are now 30% off!

Until next time, hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
And thanks so much for stopping by!

2017 Halloween Haunted House Tour Kick-Off

Hello, hello Friends, and welcome to my Haunted House!
As most of you know by now, Fall is my most favorite season of the year, and October is by far my favorite month. It’s become an annual tradition around these parts to share my Halloween haunts and spooks with all of you, and today I am super excited to kick off the start of this year’s house tour. Step this way, my Pretties, and let the haunting begin!


This year I thought we’d begin in my dining room, which is always one of my favorite spots to decorate. Not only is it one of the first rooms you see when entering my house, I also love the decorating potential of all the shelves on my antique sideboard. Such a great spot to pile up lots and lots of spooks!


This year’s theme in the dining room? Skulls and bones and ghosts, in a crisp black and white color palette to match my dishes. With just a hint of pumpkin orange added to the mix.


I know most of you have toured with me many times before, so some of these scenes will have become familiar to you. But hopefully artfully rearranged for this year’s tour. I’ve taken lots of photos to share, zooming in on all the tiny details. So sit back and relax, and welcome to the tour!


I do so hope you enjoyed the beginning of the tour!  And just in case anyone is looking for a few new spooks of their own, I’ve uncovered a few extra goodies from last year while going through my bins…. like these spooky skulls and a few of their friends.
You can find them HERE in my AudOnes Prims Shop!


Until next time, hope you have a wonderful weekend, and thanks so much for stopping by!

AudOnes Prims Fall Shop 2017 Grand Opening


Hello, Sweet Friends! Happy Sunday, happy long holiday weekend, and happy September to all of you! If you can’t tell, I’m a wee bit excited today, because today I get to share the big reveal and grand opening of my Fall 2017 AudOnes Prims shop!


A shop opening is always a very special day for me, but none more so than my Fall Shop. As most of you know by now, autumn is my absolute favorite time of year, and I tend to get a little giddy about the thought of pumpkin everything.


And the fall is when I kicked things off here at AudOnes Prims, so with this new collection, I am celebrating my third anniversary! That’s a big milestone for me, and I couldn’t have done it without all of you! Seriously cannot thank you enough for all the encouragement and support. ❤


So here’s a little peek at my new line, available now. I’ve got sweet and shabby Halloween spooks to share, and lots of harvest offerings, too. And of course, pumpkins. Lots and lots of pumpkins! I hope you enjoy!


My fall collection is available today at 1:00 pm EST.
Which means right about NOW!

A Little Dose of Happy with Tammy Tutterow & Spellbinders

Hi Sweet Friends, and happy Monday once again!
Hope you all have had a super wonderful week! Any big plans in the works for this tail end of summer?


Is it just me, or does anyone else feel like autumn is almost here? I know the official date is still weeks away, but once school starts and Labor Day approaches, I feel like we’ve turned the corner on our seasons. And I, for one, am really looking forward to fall.


Labor Day weekend is my boy’s birthday. He will be 22 this year…. which is so hard to believe. I’m looking forward to having him home for the long weekend, and possibly my wee Missy Nik, too. I’ve got plans for baking some of Pete’s favorite treats and wrapping a few pressies. Sweet homey things that make this old mom’s heart burst with happy.
So it seemed rather fitting to share this “little dose of happy” card here with you today.


This card is made with some of the most adorable cling stamps from my dear friend Tammy Tutterow’s collection with Spellbinders. This is the pretty Sunflower Bunch stamp, along with a sentiment from the Tiny Sentiments set. The images were die cut with Tim Holtz Stitched Circles. And a bit of paper busting from my stash.

Thank you all so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a fabulous week ahead. And in case you’re interested, a little news on my AudOnes Prims shop….

I will be unveiling my fall collection this weekend.
Grand Opening is this Sunday,
September 3rd @ 1:00 p.m. EST

A Father’s Day Tutorial with Ranger Ink

Hello, Crafty Friends!
Thanks for stopping by!

Father’s Day Card by Audrey Pettit | www.rangerink.com
I’m off to a bit of a late start to my week, with a Tuesday post instead of my usual Monday. It’s been busy here, with lots of things on my to-do list….. but busy in a very good way. Tomorrow we’re heading out on vacation. I’m going home, friends! Home to visit my family. 🙂


It’s a very rare occurrence for me, but this year I get to spend Father’s Day with my dad. And of course a special occasion like that calls for a handmade card. So I have pulled out some of my favorite inky Ranger and Tim Holtz goodies to create this retro, masculine Father’s Day card for him, which I’m very excited to be sharing this week on the Ranger Ink blog.


My parents live near San Francisco, so it seems only fitting to pull out this amazing Tim Holtz Cityscape die for his Father’s Day card this year. I love all the individual pieces that come in this collection, but for this card, I used one of the border dies to create a quick and easy city scene, layered onto a Stitched Rectangles die cut frame.


I pulled out some of the darker range of Distress inks to watercolor the buildings, and then added highlights to the vellum windows with a yellow Distress marker. The sky was water-colored, too, with a golden glow for a sunny background.


I added some stamps and splatters, and a grungy finish with opaque Texture Paste. Papers from the Memoranda paper stash and a die cut sentiment banner.

I’ve got the complete step-by-step tutorial up on the Ranger Ink blog, if you’d like to learn more!

P.S.~ Today is the last chance to snatch up the few remaining goodies in my AudOnes Prims shop before I close for vacation. There’s still a couple of items from my nautical summer mini-release, and even a few remaining spring prims, as well. Last chance!

 

 

Have a wonderful day, everyone! I’m heading out tomorrow, but hope to visit and post while I’m away.  So, my friends, I will see you all soon!
