Day 4
"Nevermore"
Raven Gothic Window SVG Cutz
Easel Card by Val
 
For Day 4 of our POEtastic 7th annual Poe Appreciation Blog Hop LeighSBDesiger Val created a POEtastic easel card!


Val used my new Raven Gothic Window SVG Cutz set, "NEVERMORE" text from my Distressed Raven Nevermore digi stamp and for a lovely touch of greenery the Pine Bough from my Christmas Tree Charms Lace SVG Cutz set made an appearance on this stunning easel card.

 

Val used her Silhouette Portrait 3 electronic cutting machine to cut the Raven Gothic Window lace overlay from black cardstock and the mat layers from Hobby Craft Mixture of OmbrΓ© Cardstocks and the Pine Bough from green glitter cardstock.


Val then embellished the Raven Gothic Window lace overlay with Tim's clear Distress Rock Candy Glitter applied with a Quickie glue pen and used Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink on the “Nevermore” word.  She then completed her card by constructing an easel stand out of black cardstock.

Day 3
"Raven Poe"
Jeweled Hanging Ornament
by Leigh
 
For Day 3 of our POEtastic 7th annual Poe Appreciation Blog Hop I'm back to share my "Raven Poe" jeweled hanging ornament featuring 2 of my new SVG Cutz sets included in the Edgar Allan Poe SVG Cutz 2022 releaseπŸ–€
 

To make my POEtastic hanging ornament I used the Gothic Raven SVG Cutz set and the "POE" raven font letters included in the "POE" Raven and Classic Font Words SVG Cutz set.


 The Gothic Raven set contains the lace overlay design and 3 mat layers and the "POE" Raven Font letters consist of the overlay letters and one mat layer for each letter.  For this make I used my Silhouette Cameo 4 to cut out 2 of each overlay and all the mat layers which I then adhered together to make each piece nice and chunky.  The black and grey cardstocks are from Crafter's Companion's neutral tones cardstock pack and the red from the warm tones cardstock pack. 


I then applied Black Soot Distress ink to the edges of the all the chunky pieces except the black overlays which I grunged up with metallic silver Spectrum Noir gilding wax.


 I then adhered all the layers of the Gothic Raven and "POE" Raven letters together to make the large ornament pieces.


I made the beaded elements using beautiful dark red and metallic black glass beads and metallic black jewelry findings.


I completed the jeweled hanging ornament by drilling holes through the multi-layered cardstock pieces with a sharp pokey tool and attached the beaded elements to the cardstock pieces with jump rings.


 My round ornament stand is the POEfect place to display my new Raven Poe ornament!
I love how it turned outπŸ–€

Art Journal Cover and Page 1
by Val
 
For Day 2 of our POEtastic 7th annual Poe Appreciation Blog Hop LeighSBDesiger Val is here with the start of her wonderful "Ode to Poe" Art Journal.  Today I'm sharing her POEtastic cover and page 1!


Val is using a 6 x 6 inch black journal book for her Poe themed art journal and decorated the front cover with Ode to Poe and the "NEVERMORE" text is from my Distressed Raven Nevermore design.


She also used Stampendous Fran-tage Chunky White and deep impression embossing enamel to embellish the cover.


The first page of Val's POEtastic art journal is handsomely decorated with Poe's signature from the Edgar Allan Poe Portrait and Signature digi stamp set!  She created a wonderful background paper using the Poe Signature design and also embellished the gorgeous embossed panel with it too.


Val used the following supplies to create her first page:  Gemini Embossing Folder, Spectrum Noir Midas Metallic Silver pigment ink pad, Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot Distress Oxide ink pads, Hobby Craft smooth white yardstick and black cardstock.

Day 1
"Gothic Poe Gnome Window"
Slimline Shaker Card
by Leigh
 
I'm kicking of our totally POEtastic 7th annual Poe Appreciation Blog Hop today with a handsome slimline shaker card featuring my new Raven Gothic Window SVG Cutz and my lovable quirky Poe GnomeπŸ–€
 

 Welcome to my inner sanctuaryπŸ˜‰
On a cold winter night I like to curl up in front of the fire with Poe Gnome perched upon a stack of my favourite Edgar Allan Poe books reading to my hearts content by candlelight while the wind howls and bats fly around in the falling snow outside my Gothic window!
 

Ahhhh, to get lost in a scary tale on a dark and stormy night, sounds divine right!
 

I started out by cutting the lace overlay and mat layers of the Gothic Raven Window SVG Cutz set using my Silhouette Cameo 4.
 

 I applied Distress Black Soot ink to the panels and silver Spectrum Noir gilding wax to the top lace overlay panel before adhering them together without the base panel.  I made the shaker element by gluing a rectangle piece of acetate to the back of the assembled piece, added black double sided foam tape and filled it with faux snow and a few black confetti bats and then adhered the base panel in place.
 

I then die cut out all the elements of Tim’s 2 colorize candlesticks from textured cream cardstock and used Distress Oxide inks to colour all the individual pieces before gluing them together.


I then coloured up Poe Gnome with Prismacolor pencils and fussy cut him out with scissors.  I coloured him to look like he’s glowing with reflected fire light while the Raven perched on his head keeps a watchful eye on the bats flying outside the window!


I attached Poe Gnome in place with black foam tape and then adhered the candlesticks to the windowsill with glue.  I completed my slimline shaker card by mounting the Gothic Window panel onto a slimline card base I made from black heavy weight cardstock.

Now back to reading a spooky macabre tale, pull up a chair and join me in front of the fireπŸ˜‰
