Spooky Mansion

Good Morning,

I'm officially into Halloween mode.  Yes, you will be seeing all sorts of spooky or not so spooky projects.

The charger plate was bought at Michaels. I bought a bunch so you will be seeing more! They were such a good deal.

Decorated the plate with vinyl.
Cartridge- Happy Hauntings - It is a super Halloween cartridge - got my dollars worth from this one!

House - 6"
Stars - .5 - 1"
Moon - 1.5"
Witches - 1.8" & 1.2"
Bats - .6 & 1.2"
Happy Hauntings - 1.2" on Vampire Font
 Cut the font on black vinyl, then run through a sticker maker to apply adhesive to the front of the font. Used Martha Stewart black licorice iridescent glitter used. As a hint after you run the letters through the xyron and before you take off the backing run your brayer or rolling pin over the letters to make sure all the adhesive transfer to the letter AND I also used a stylus and outlined each of the letters especially the centre of the letters. This keeps little bits of adhesive from clinging to the holes or edges of the letter.
The stars my glitter wasn't as fine. I can't remember who made it but it was like a sugar coating, so coarser.

I buy a lot of my vinyl from Oh My Crafts on line but you can also check out your local sign companies.

Keep visiting cause I have lots of more ideas on how to alter the color of that vinyl without printing it on an Imagine.
