DAY 5- 31 Days of Halloween, Countdown to halloween, Real witches of Halloween

Welcome to Day 5 of the 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN, as well as day 5 of the COUNTDOWN TO HALLOWEEN, and Day 5 of THE REAL WITCHES OF HALLOWEEN

My contribution today is a "cheaters" case, LOL you know those cheapo-magnifying eyeglasses you can buy to read or do close work, well in our house they are called cheaters!

I bought this case for the one and only pair of cheaters I own, and KEEP misplacing, I am hoping having a case to keep them in will help with that. (Once I find them again, LOL)  I got it in the Dollar Store, I love Dollar Stores!

Here it is, black on the outside and tan on the inside
 I stamped it with White STAZ-ON Ink, using a $1 stamp from MICHAEL'S I found this year
"Ghouls just wanna have fun" with 2 little Jack-o-lanterns on each side of the sentiment.
Then on either side of the sentiment I used 2 Faux Postage Stamps, both are Halloween themed, and both from ARTCHIX STUDIOS. I then bordered them in Orange Peel Stickles by RANGER

Oh GREAT :-D Nice to see someone else is gonna have a posh glasses case hee hee. Love that Gouls.. stamp - brilliant.
Thanks for the comments on my Skully - he has a slit at the top for the money (you can just about see it) and he's got a bung underneath to get it out !
Don't know about a TuT for the 'slider easel' card as I don't have a video :-(

I'm impressed with the white Stazon too. You must have had to rock the stamp to get such good coverage on the case. Love the postoids as well.

Kristina said...

Great project! I need to get myself some of that white stazon, it looks amazing on your case. I'm really likin' those faux postage too!

Great job on the glasses (cheaters) case. I love that sentiment. Artchix- that's a company I haven't heard of in a long time. Glad they are still around.
