MMM DT MAY tutorial Zombie Bride and Groom

For the May Challenge at Mixed Media Mojo the theme was Celebration with a Wedding Twist.  Christina Sedora fellow DT Member at MMM and I LOVE the Tim Holtz Zombie Man die! So I had to use it for this month's challenge! Let's get started!


For this card, I used  Sizzix I Love You embossing folder, Tim Holtz Zombie Die, Tim Holtz Accessories Die for Hat and tie, Jolee Bride dress, Tim Holtz Flowers.
I first embossed the A7 card with the embossing folder.  The card is bigger than the embossing folder so I left a border around the embossed portion.


After die cutting two zombies, I painted them with Distress Peeled Paint by Tim Holtz. This is the perfect color for zombies!!!  Then I die cut the groom zombie with black card stock to make his zombie tuxedo, die cut with black paper for the top hat and tie.  I used pink glitter paper to die cut the hearts. This is all in the Tim Holtz Accessory dies.


For the Zombie Bride, I used Jolee satin stickers for the Bridal Gown, I used Tim Holtz Silver sparkle washi tape for the gloves, a little sprig of tulle for the veil and Tim Holtz Flowers for her bouquet.


To finish up the card, I die cut some glitter hearts from the Tim Holtz Accessory die and used Tim Holtz Chit Chats for the bottom sentiment! This was a great card to make and very easy to make!

MMM DT Challenge May Zombie Bride and Groom

Our new challenge for May at Mixed Media Mojo is celebrations with a wedding twist! I had originally planned to make a cake card but changed direction when a friend saw a Zombie Easter Tag I had made for my sister.  She wanted to know if I could make a Zombie Wedding Invitation so I came up with this and this is for our challenge!

I love the Tim Holtz Zombie die that I used for this project!  It is the die that just keeps on giving!

Easter Skelly

So for the April Challenge at Mixed Media Mojo, the theme was Spring with Umbrellas as the twist! I am a lover of all things Halloween and had some Dyan Reavley skull stamps that were just calling out to be used! So what better way to use them but in a garden with some spring showers!  So let's get started!

I started with a #10 tag and the new Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks! I love how they look and I used Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick, Broken China, Cracked Pistachio and Fossilized Amber.  Then I took a stencil and made some swirls and dots over the colors. A light mist of water helped to activate the oxides.

It took my Dyan Reavley stamps and used the flowers and skulls to stamp images onto the tag. I used the umbrella from the Tim Holtz Umbrella Man. A little trick, you can mask off parts of a stamp so that they don't get ink on them. I stamped in Distress Archival Black Soot Ink.


I then added the rain drops with  a rain drop stamp from Red Rubber Stamp! The tag was finished with Distress Black Soot ink around the edges and Voila! Skelly Flowers in the rain! Happy Easter!

Peace, Love and Cows!

I recently got some new product and had to share! Dina Wakely Scribble Sticks which are pigment in stick form. NO wax and they write over acrylic paint which is great for all projects. Plus when used in water, the create a beautiful watercolor effect. You can even wet a stamp, color it with a scribble stick and get an awesome watercolor looking stamp !!!   I also got the new Tim Holtz Farm Stamps and I had to use the cow stamp! I love cows and there are still a few around where I live!  So feeling a little groovy and wanted some multicolored cows! Moo!

Creepy Clown Tag

So I am a Halloween Haunter and I have lots of Halloween friends!  They love anything Halloween and I am happy to indulge them! I saw a creepy clown tag made by VonPappe II on Pinterest so I wanted to make this creepy clown tag for a Haunter friend of mine that is having a birthday!  The stamp is actually from Andy Skinner but you could use Tim Holtz Skull and paint on the round nose.  Distress paints and crayons are the colors used for this tag. I like the effect! Kind of creepy!
