Booglie Halloween House

Today is a less serious Halloween House..........all the fun characters are stamped, painted with aqua painters, popped with dimensionals. Yup....This is a fun treat house.....even the gate is a little different with some grass in front. This one has a black & white striped ribbon - I just had to add it as the final touch to this house.
Here's a closer look at the front: the Treater isn't scared of the stamped spiders in the window. The gate also opens, too. The door knob is painted with Gold Smooch.

Above, on the roof is a stamped message, sponged and curved to "wave" in the cold night. It is adhered to the chimney and crease of the roof..............those stamped Halloweeners in the gables are slightly ever so slightly off at an angle.

Here's the left side of the house: the tree is embossed with the wood texturz plate, embossed, and edges are sponged using chocolate chip ink. This emboss/die has the tree, clouds, bat and owl............I had to take it out, dust it off and use it (for goodness sake, use what we have - right?)

back of the house: a flying witch, a crooked chimney, and a crooked peak (with Dracula peeking out), too

And on the house itself: the Mummy and Frankenstein probably want to eat those spiders for dinner! They are both popped with dimensionals.

And, here is a close-up of the Flying Witch.............

The right side of the house: the bats are slightly in a different position: Note: the tree is placed outside the fence and grass and is popped with dimensionals.

Finally, take the lid off, no candy here but you get the picture or put in other objects.........

Here's a little bit of how each part was made:
The fence: punched, sponge with Crumb Cake ink
The grass: punched, sponge with Old Olive ink
Adhere both pieces, set aside

To make the windows:
OK - I cheated, I have a Quickuts window die that was really helpful and the perfect size (and this is the 1st time I had an opportunity to use it - Yay!). Cut the Whisper White CS and stamp the spiders. use a Aqua Pen to color the spiders. The window is also sponged with Craft White ink.

Emboss the roof pieces, sponge with Craft White ink. Sponge all the gables and peak with Black ink. The small stamped images (painted using Aqua painters) fit perfectly in the roof windows. They are popped with dimensionals and have a 1" punched black mat.

The side of the house:
Trees are embossed to have the wood texture and also the outline. Then sponged with Chocolate Chip ink

The owl in the tree is also sponged with Lovely Lilac ink. Those eyes are colored using a white gel pen and the eyes are using a black Stampin wri'te pen. Beak is using Tangerine Tango Stampin Write Pen - pop the owl with a dimensional. Adhere the "clouds" after sponging. Adhere the bats after sponging using Craft White ink. Add googlie eyes using Tombow adhesive.

Close-up of the owl:

I knew I would use this Booglie Eyes stamp set some day - that day is TODAY!! I never mounted it either so it was perfect to mount and use on acrylics. I used Aileen's Tack it to convert these wood stamps to "cling". All images were colored using Aqua Painters, then cut out, popped with dimensionals.

Now the house can be assembled. Assemble the fence "flat" using sticky tape. The rest is simple enough.
  • Stamps: Booglie Eyes (retired), Small Stamped Witch-Dracula-Skull (unknown), Happy Halloween (non SU), Door (PTI)
  • CS: Lovely Lilac (retired), Black, Close to Cocoa (retired), Whisper White, Orchid Opulence (retired), Crumb Cake (Kraft), Old Olive
  • Ink: Craft White, Black, Lovely Lilac
  • Accys: Big Shot Texturz Plate #4, Fence Punch (non SU), Grass Punch (non SU), Window Die (non SU), Gold Smooth (non SU), Tree and Bat die (non SU), Aqua Painters, Dimensionals, Sticky Tape, Striped Ribbon (non SU), Googlie Eyes (non SU), white gel pen, Stampin Write Pens Black, Tangerine Tango.

I'd like to say I'm speechless, but I'm not! This is AWESOME! I love every single detail about this house (and the last house). I would definitely be too scared to trick or treat at this house!

Each side is a treasure to look at. thanks for sharing all the pics and inspiring us. It's amazing.
