31  Halloween Greeting Cards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Killam Creative on: September 12, 2011 06:30:11 AM
I dont' see greeting cards much 'round these parts, but I wanted to share these anyway. Hey, it's what I do so why not, right?  Wink They're both made using the same sketch from my design team. I love these vintage images!

Heh. Tea party. Perhaps my favorite card EVER.


I love the Antikamnia Calendar skeletons. I spent countless hours scouring the internets to find high quality downloads and now have a bunch of them. They are all full-color, but this guy is printed in black & white and layered for a little umph.


Cheers,
Susan

32  Steampunk Matchbox [Image heavy] in Completed Projects by Killam Creative on: May 12, 2011 09:23:44 AM
This was for the Matchbox Swap, Round 5. My partner was Wulf, who appreciates Steampunk.

I used an easel style for the top, also found on many of my greeting cards. I put so much time into cards and really like how the style says "display me!". I think it lends itself rather well to an itty bitty matchbox.



Here's a closeup of the top gears and such.



The Fairy Gent lays flat for transport or storage and stands up with the help of the metal arrow.



The monocle is made from a short length of chain and a jump ring. I poured a bit of Glossy Accents in the ring to create a glassy effect. The chain is attached to his coat with a single strand of gold embroidery thread.





The black and gold paper is this oh-so-cool Japanese washi paper I found at a trade show. The gold lining inside the drawer is re-purposed envelope liner from a Christmas card. The black decorative bits on each side are there as grips to help pull the snug drawer out (and keep from squishing the back end).



I painted the drawer and inside of the matchbox with black acrylic paint and then covered the whole drawer in washi paper. After it all dried I realized the acrylic paint on the very edges of the drawer dragged against the paint on the inside of the box. I was able to smooth it out with a little wax paper rubbin', but there was definitely a lesson learned!



Thanks so much for looking!

Cheers,
Susan

33  Pack Your Bags, We're Hitting The Road! [image heavy, but worth it] in The Swap Gallery by Killam Creative on: May 11, 2011 09:10:02 PM
Get ready for the Greatness that is a Wulf Matchbox!

This is the most incredible little leather suitcase I've ever seen! Wulf, the details are great and I appreciate every second you put into the construction. I wanted to include *all* of the photos I've taken of it's tiny little details but decided to spare everyone my obsession. Here are the highlights!

All wrapped up with a fantastic vintage postcard:


The front of the Niagara Falls, Canada postcard. I don't know the age of the post card, but it was printed when the mailing cost was 1!:


Here's a close up of the front straps:


Inside, packed tight:


Wulf, I can't believe you fit all this into that tiny suitcase!


Beautifully colored insect stamps from Chad
A filigree butterfly
Large pink plastic discs including fun light pink iridescent ones!
A copper washer
6 disc-shaped beads
Loads of little seed beads in reds and oranges, plus a rogue silver one
A puffy skellie sticker and a skellie bead
Vintage pins - a flourish, yummy rhinestone flowers and an awesome velvet and rose hat
5 little white vintage buttons and a hefty, light grey button that might be metal
4 gold tone connectors - 2 fancy swirly and 2 that remind me of double-ended nooses
A red ladybug bead that will be hoarded forever
A purple and black ladybug earring that makes me rethink all the lonely bits and pieces in my jewelry box - snip off the posts et voila, a fabby little embellishement!
2 round brass brads
Teeny tiny heart and key charms
A metal leaf-shaped charm in a cool blue patina that will also go into the Permanent Hoarding Collection
Wee blue and green cabochons that might find their way on a project I'm working on right now
A silver buckle that is so small but looks giant-sized compared to the buckles on the suitcase
A silver (sterling, I think) and purple charm that probably lived a former life as an earring
A little plastic ant (squee!)
A brilliant old label from a chain spool
9 delicious inches of vintage lace
And the best of the bunch - a beautiful blue vintage rhinestone that stopped me in my tracks - LOVELOVELOVE this!

Inside, using the beautiful butterfly to hold the lid open:


Here's a view of the strapping in the back, and another great view of the teeny tiny stickers!


Wulf, thank you, thank you, thank you! I will treasure it always.

Cheers,
Susan

34  Wicked Circus Altoid Tin Swap in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Killam Creative on: March 24, 2011 09:50:01 AM
I had the awesome rackycoo as a swap partner - how lucky am I?!

Here is the tin I sent her:
Alexander, the crystal ball and the skeleton hand are all layered. The crystal ball is covered with Glossy Accents.




Inside is a fortune teller's wheel with a spinning arrow and the mystic's lair.




The crystal ball is an old marble, and the table is half of a dollhouse table. Smiley

Check out what racky sent me here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=376303.0

Thanks for looking!

39  Tag, You're It! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Killam Creative on: January 12, 2011 09:06:28 AM
Hiya! This past December I was incredibly inspired by Tim Holtz and his 12 Tags of Christmas posts. I ooh'd and ahh'd and loved all over the techniques... but didn't try one single thing! Heh. I've finally gotten around to trying a tag, if not any of his techniques. I'll get there!



I love vintage. The tatting down the left side is vintage, found at an antique shop. ::swoon:: Everything else is new, from the My Mind's Eye/Lost and Found/Union Square paper line. The metal bits and bobs are from a variety of sources. All together, it feels vintage-y to me!

Cheers,
Susan

40  Woodland Christmas in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Killam Creative on: January 04, 2011 10:07:46 AM
Hiya! Thanks for a fun challenge. Hope I'm eligible as a "newbie". If not, I'll catch the next one!

This is my favorite card made this last year. She marks my best Tilda* stamped card ever (I've made a ton) and the end of all-Tilda-all-the-time (er... I've made a ton of Tilda cards). I used bits and pieces of greenery from saved gift tags and tried a new stamping technique on the ticket. Smiley



*Tilda is the given name of all female stamps from Swedish stamp company Magnolia.

Cheers,
Susan
