Nightmare Before Christmas Hop

Tee and Jearise are collaborating on this hop because they both love The Nightmare Before Christmas and Jack Skellington. Take a ride to Halloweentown as we bring it alive through many creative projects from our awesome line up of crafters/bloggers.

Our sponsor for this hop is Cutting Cafe, who is giving away three files of the winner's choice. You can get qualified for the drawing, which will be held on October 15th, by leaving comments on each blog. The more blogs you comment on the more chances you have to win so please hop through all our bloggers.

Now on to Halloweentown... and a quote from Jack Skellington to get you on your way, "Just because I cannot see it, doesn't mean I can't believe it!"

We are major NBC fans... anything Tim Burton does, we all just LOVE it in our house!

So, for this blog hop I decided to make a set of easle cards that I'm going to be sending to my uncle and his wife.

Here's what I used....
Black cardstock by Wausau, gold and burnt orange cardstock, not sure by what company, Orange and Silver Handy Hundred cord, Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Ink, Stampin' Stuff's Pirate Gold embossing powder for the background, gold micro beads on the bottom, 3D foam adhesive squares and finally, Diamond Glaze on their eyes.

I did a spin on the "Triple Time Stamp" technique on these cards,  with the clear ink, then embossed them in gold.
Jack's eyes look blue here, but the Diamond Glaze was not dry yet when I took this picture....
My handmade from the heart stamp.... embossed in gold.

Thank you for stopping by today and now please continue on to
