Directions~
My base of the House is made out of Basic Black card stock.

1. Cut a piece of Cajun Craze  card stock 4 3/4" x 7 3/4". Find the center like you did in step 1 yesterday. The center was 2 3/16; place a mark here then measure down both sides 2 1/2" and place a mark there. Then draw you line from point to point and cut on the solid line. I stamped the Sanded Background in Cajun Craze ink, then sponged the edges with Cajun Craze ink.

2. Cut a piece of Rich Razzleberry 4 1/2" x 7 1/2". Find the center, the center is 2 1/4" place a mark here. Measure down 2 1/2" on both sides and place a mark here. Then draw your line from point to point and cut on the solid line. I stamped the scroll image from Friends 24-7 in Rich Razzleberry ink I stamped the crow from Dark and Dreary in Basic Black ink, then sponged the edges with Rich Razzleberry ink.

3. At the top I stamped the happy halloween from the Dark and Dreary set in Rich Razzleberry ink. I stamped the Sanded Background stamp over the top of it in Cajun Craze ink. In the center I added a Build-A-Brad Pewter with the 31 stamped in Cajun Craze. I added some Designer Jewels Black Flourish to jazz it up more. Behind is a piece of Old Olive card stock that I ran through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, I sponged the edges with Old Olive ink. I placed Stampin' Dimensionals behind it to pop it up.

4. I cut a piece of Wicked Fun Specialty DSP, I crumbled it up then took my scissors to the edges to rough it up. On the top of it I added a strip of 1/2 Lace Trim Raven.

5. I cut the door out of Basic Black card stock at the top I round it off with my scissors. I then added a piece of DSP Newsprint, I crumbled it up then sponged it with the following inks; Cajun Craze, Rich Razzleberry, and Old Olive. I stamped the
spider from Dark and Dreary randomly all over in Basic Black ink. I then curved the top with my scissors. I took one of the Basic Glimmer Brads added glue to it and dipped it in the Green Fine Supernova Glitter. I used this for the door knob. I placed Stampin' Dimensionals behind it.

6. I cut a piece of Basic Black card stock, scored it several times. I added little strips of Wicked Fun Specialty DSP then folded so it would look like steps. I attached it with sticky strip.

7. I cut 2 pieces of Very Vanilla card stock, stamped the Sanded Background in Cajun Craze over them. Then using my Basic Black Stampin Write Marker I drew lines to look like window panes. To stamp the candle I colored just part of the stamp in Dark and Dreary with my Basic Black marker. Then stamped onto the card stock. On the other piece I stamped the Spider in Basic Black ink. I then wrapped 1/2 Lace Trim Raven at the top to look like curtains. I mounted a piece of Cajun Craze card stock behind the Very Vanilla and added Stampin' Dimensionals to the back.

Directions~ (I recommend watching the Tutorial Video for this)

The center will be 2 1/2" place a little mark there, measure down 2 1/2" on each of the sides; place a little mark there. Then draw a line from mark to mark. Cut on the line. You then will have a point at the top. At the bottom, cut your tabs then glue together. These pieces are for the front and back of the house.

2. Cut 3 piece of card stock 5" x 5 1/2". These pieces are for the sides and bottom.

3. Cut 1 piece of card stock 6" x 8 1/2" Then score at 4 1/4". Fold on scored line and you will have your roof. To hold the roof on cut 4 pieces of card stock 1" x 3 1/2" fold like the video shows then measure a 1/4 in and glue on to the roof.

You also will want to decorate your pieces before assembling everything!!!!
