Spooky Haunted House

Oh yes, I'm still here, but I've been so busy stamping, I haven't had a chance to blog! Oh my!! So, you can imagine I have a lot to share, so here is an adorable project for Halloween!

It's a Spooky Haunted House! And yes, I'll preface this by saying that a picture just doesn't do it justice! It looks so darn cute in person, I can just sit and look at it for ... well, longer than I have time to do! I was really proud of myself because I actually spray painted this and I have never spray painted before! I know, 52 years old and I've never spray painted! (So, don't look too close, okay?) While it was still wet, I sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on the roof so it shimmers! For the windows, I stamped images from Wicked Cool and Dark & Dreary stamp sets onto vellum cardstock with Jet Black Stazon ink, then adhered them on the inside. I did put flickering battery-operated lights inside the house that really adds so much!!! The shutters were made with the Curly Label punch just cut in half! One of the things I like the most is the witch's feet sticking up out of the chimney! I tried to hard NOT to buy the Wicked Cool stamp set, but as you can see, that went out like the wind!

The houses really are easy to put together and make sure that you have Sticky Strip so it doesn't come apart on you! I am definitely ordering some more so I can have a house for each holiday!
