31 Days Of Halloween With Stampendous

I made this card for-2016_31-days-of-halloween

And you'll want to hop along, look what you could win, one prize pack is given away each week of October!!


To make the card Chilling was stamped on white cardstock with Onyx Black ink and embossed with clear.  Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Dusty Concord and Hickory Smoke were sponged onto the image after masking fluid dried on the eyes and lips.

After the image was sponged the masking fluid was removed to reveal the bright white paper.  This was then glued to an orange panel that had been sponged with Hickory Smoke ink.  It was then glued to a black card that was stamped with Industrial in Silvery Shimmer ink.

Happy Halloween was stamped on acetate with black StazOn ink and cut out.  I had to think for a while on how to attach it to the card since glue would show through the acetate.  A large orange rhinestone was placed on the acetate and a dot of glue was placed under it then placed on the card, it worked perfectly.

Hickory Smoke ink was rubbed on white May Arts Ribbon, tied in a knot and glued to the card.  Black and orange rhinestones were then placed on the ribbon.

Shabby Chic Fruit

I have some exciting news today, I am now on the design team for I Brake For Stamps and this is my first blog post as one of their design team members!!

Today I have a shabby chic card that was made using the new Fruit and Flowers Sheet from I Brake For Stamps.  Here is how it was made;

1.  I diecut white cardstock using Fitted Frames A and took some plastic wrap (like you use in your kitchen), wadded it up, tapped it on a Sand ink pad and stamped it onto my paper.  I didn't want the background to be bright white. This was repeated until I was happy with how it looked.  The edges were sponged with the same ink.
2.  The strawberry from the Fruit and Flowers Sheet was then stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed with PEARLustre Champagne Embossing Powder.

3.  It was then colored with Zig Clean Color pens and shadowed with decorative chalk.
4.  Fruit from the same stamp set was stamped with Lettuce Adirondack ink and gold Dot Sparklers were added.  This was layered onto dark green decorative paper with Zip Dry Glue and set aside.
5.  A Lattice die from Spellbinders was used to cut white cardstock.  A VersaMark ink pad was smooshed on top of the diecut piece and Aged Rose Embossing Enamel was sprinkled on the ink and heat embossed.
6.  The lattice was taped to the top half of a 5 1/4" x 4" white panel that had the same plastic wrap stamped background as the strawberry panel. The over hang was cut off.
7.  Green decorative paper was glued to the bottom portion of the panel and a gold paper strip was glued over the seam.
8.  Strawberry was stamped on a diecut piece that was prepared the same as above  and stamped with Victorian Velvet Distress ink.  Gold Dot Sparklers were added and the piece was popped up with 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

I'm so excited, this week the Stampendous Design Team gets to share a sneak peek from the New Stampendous October catalog!! My cards today feature a couple background stamps to make a sophisticated collage background.

To make this I rubbed Wild Honey and Peeled Paint Distress inks on an acrylic block, spritzed with water and stamped onto a white panel.  I then spritzed the block again and stamped on another white panel to make a second card.  Each panel looks different and some are darker than others.

Once that dried Scrollwork Leaves was stamped in two of the corners with Peeled Paint ink and Script Lines was randomly stamped with Tea Dye Distress ink.

The hello was die cut from wine colored paper, glued on with Zip Dry Glue and purple rhinestones were added.  The panel was glued to a white card.

Be sure to stop the Stampendous Blog to see what the other Designers have to share with you today, link is at the bottom.
