Spooky Sentiment and Tombstones by Dianna's Crafts

Hi Everyone, Dianna here with Gina's Designs Spooky Stand Up Sentiment and Tombstone Stand Ups.  I made this project with Amy Loves' celebration of 500 Youtube Subs in mind.  I will be sending this to Amy as part of her giveaway.  Make sure you hop over and see
Amy's Youtube channel.

First I spray painted the sign black and cut the Spooky out of three different papers. I then embossed the purple with a splatter folder.  I then tore the different papers in various areas to give a more tattered look.  I then distressed the edges with black ink

I then painted the wrought iron set black and placed the large fence behind the Spooky.

I painted the skeletons white and used white and purple Stickles on all the skeletons.  I cut the arms and legs off the large skeleton, punched holes in all the pieces and used brads to reattach the limbs.  I used orange paint on the pumpkin and placed the pumpkin in the skeleton. I placed a green rosette with a black bat on the top of one of the fence spikes. The spiderweb was painted white and daubed with white Stickles.

I decided to paint four tombstones black and used black Stickles on three of them.  The fourth black tombstone I used grey Stickles over the black to create a streaked look.  I painted the last tombstones grey and distressed both with black ink.  Stickles was used on the angel tombstone and the center stone was papered with left over scrap paper.

  1. I am loving your SPOOKY creations!!!

  2. Dianna, I just received your wonderful graveyard and I love it! did a video that was completely out of frame (trying a new angle that didn't work well at all). I'll re-shoot it and post it to youtube later. But you won't get to see me open it and get my initial surprise… Thank you again - Dennis Siple

    1. I am so glad you like them Dennis! I simply love Halloween and I am glad they went to someone who loves it just as much! I look forward to your video. PS I finally just got into the Christmas spirit and started crafting. I think it was all of the lovely clearance items! Thank you again for your wonderful comments- Dianna

  3. Here's the link to the video, Dianna:

    The first video box opening had my first reactions, but everything was out of frame - tried to use a new camera location and I couldn't see the viewfinder. I shot this one on my phone and uploaded it directly. Hugs - Dennis

    1. The scull had gotten tilted and fell to the side. I was going to glue a back on it to stabilize it and it broke off. So now it's setting on its side, resting on the fence. Kind of reminds me of something out of South Park, lol. I really do love it - Dennis
