31 Days of Halloween... Day 8

I'm playing along today with Stampendous 31 Days of Halloween! Each day Stampendous will be sharing Halloween projects with items from the July Catalog.  Leave a comment on all the blogs to be entered multiple times.

I masked the pumpkins from the Stampendous Halloween Hat Cling Stamp and Die set. I trimmed around the stamped images and popped them up on a Distress Ink background. 



Looking for a simple idea non-edible Halloween treat? Bookmarks! These would be great for Halloween class party treat ideas.  I masked this image repeatedly so it took a bit of time, but you could keep it simple with single stamped images. Leave it uncolored so the kids can color it in themselves.

you otter know....


Today I'm playing along with Poppy Stamps August Challenge...Make a Splash. I used the Christmas Friends stamp set in a bit of a different way for this love you card. 

To create the waves, I masked off the cardfront with painters tape. Next using a DIY stencil I created from various scallop dies I inked up the front in blue and green distress inks. I stamped the otters and hearts on vellum with Versamark and embossed with Wintergreen embossing powder. I die cut the Alpha Letters and Heart from both fun foam and cardstock. I adhered the cardstock over the foam and adhered the sentiment to my card. Next I stamped the "you otter know" above the sentiment. 


Supplies Used: Poppy Stamps Christmas Friends, Your Next Stamp Bold Alpha dies, Crafters Companion Heart Dies, Distress Ink, Stampendous Wintergreen Embossing Powder, vellum, foam

Friends warm our hearts...

I wanted a frosted effect for this card so I stamped the birch trees on a Distress Ink background. Next I sanded a piece of acetate on both sides. This gives it a frosted look but still allows you to see the trees behind it. I tried vellum first but my vellum is too opaque. Next I adhered the acetate behind the main frame/image and adhered them to the card. 

Supplies used: Stampendous Birch Buddies, Snow Globe Kiddo, Holiday Expressions, white embossing powder, acetate), Tsukineko Memento, Versamark, Copics
