    New Coffin Shrine, Little Coffin Hutch artwork & SALE!

    Filed under Back in Stock, Halloween, Miniatures, Shannon Cooper

    What a treat in store today! Design Team Member Shannon Cooper has hit maximum Halloween crafting craziness and created a miniature hutch from the new Little Niche Shrine – Coffin!

    But before I get lost in telling you all about the wonders inside the hutch, these 3 very popular miniatures are back in stock!

     
    Little Coffin Hutch by Shannon Cooper!

    Wow! Really. The new coffin shrine is fairly simple: A niche shrine, with a solid back that could also be hinged as a cover. But Shannon turned it into a piece of 1:12 scale furniture! And she has a tutorial on her blog post with all kinds of info (making the shelves, wrapping the edges of the coffin…).

    So here’s a bit of text from that post as intro:

    Eeek, Halloween crafting is in full swing! My entire craft area is covered in bats, skulls, spooky paper, black cats, glitter… I think all of the Halloween stuff I own is scattered across two tables (save for a teensy workspace where the cat sometimes sits).

    I finished a mini project recently using Alpha Stamps new Little Niche Shrine – Coffin. Leslie knows how much I love the niche shrines, so she sent one to play around with. (it is also possible I begged for one, whatever!)

    I covered the sides of the shrine and added two shelves to make a miniature hutch to use in a future project. There’s a faux drawer and spindly feet, too. A brief run-down for adding sides and shelves is down below.

    The hutch is filled with a handful of retro orange and black goodies like a 1:12 Brass Picture Frame painted purply-black with a sweet witch image, re-covered Thinner Mini Books, a fun black cat bunting from the Witchy Mirror Trims Collage Sheet, and a Tiny Ceramic Vampire Bead.

    More info and pics of some of those tiny items are below. Plus a rather extensive tour of other bits and bobs.

    I’ve put ALL of Shannon’s supply list in a new collection and created a discount code for 20% off those suppiles! More info on the sale is below (and remember that all of the supplies shown ‘tween here and there are included in the sale)!
     

     
    Starting off on this whirlwind tour as gently as possible: the Small Baroque Cast Metal Wall Frame! I love the squirrelly details (yes, that is a technical term) and it looks great painted black. If you scroll down just a wee bit you can see the coffin in a room box … with paper from the Masquerade 12×12 Custom Paper Set as wallpaper (which you can also see behind the metal frame in the close-up at left).

    And that tiny (yet enthusiastic) portrait is from the Halloween Pendants Collage Sheet.

     
    Next up: lots of stuff so this tour is getting busy… a candelabra, that brass frame already mentioned in Shannon’s intro, a white cat, a bright orange pumpkin button (from a button set on sale!), and some thistles (maybe thistles? orange flowers in a white planter) which are cleverly snipped from a flower box!

    Photos of most everything I just mentioned are either left or right of this text or in a row below the wide art photo.
     

     
    Wow. I’ve zoomed way in to see “just” the top shelf and there’s still more to see than my short highlights here.

    A RIP Tombstone Polymer Clay Slice and a Tiny Ceramic Vampire Bead are over on the left side of the shelf (and also shown in pics left and right). There’s also the black cat bunting Shannon mentioned, tiny jars of beads, and a skull bead. Oh, and you can just make out the crazy ’60s font of “Trick or Treat” on the front of a tiny folding paper bag on the next shelf down!
