For Day 2 of the reveals, we are showcasing the Halloween Pile Stamp Set + coordinating dies along with the Spiderweb Oval Stamp Set that goes along with the previously released Oval Frames Die Set.
For my first project, I started by die-cutting the pattern paper from the Halloween Meows Paper Pad and adhered the same on some A2-size, top-folding notecard. I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to cut the image out.
The background was made by by doing the following steps –> (1) cover some Bristol smooth white card stock with some circle masking paper; (2) ink-blend this panel with some distress oxide ink; (3) use some distress sprayer to spray some water and pick up the excess with some paper towel; (4) remove the masking paper and use the same foam-blending tool to add some interest and texture to the moon; (5) remove the masking paper and adhere the ink-blended background to the card with foam-adhesive for more dimension.
Die-cut the grass panel using the Land Border Die on some black card stock and adhere to the foreground with liquid glue. Adhere the focal image on the card. Stamp the bats with some black ink.
Finish the card design by stamping the sentiment on the grass with Versamark ink. Sprinkle some white embossing powder and heat-set with the heating tool. Here’s another look:
The next project is really simple but I LOVE how it turned out! I die-cut the pattern paper from the Halloween Meows Paper Pad and adhered the same on some A2-size, top-folding notecard with liquid glue.
The focal image was stamped on some black card stock with Versamark ink. I sprinkled some white embossing powder on this and heat-set with the heating tool. I die-cut the focal image using the Oval Frame Die and used my precision snips to fussy-cut around the images. I foam-mounted this to the card for added dimension.
I finished the card design by foam-mounting the sentiment that I stamped and heat-set with heating tool and die-cut using the smallest oval die from the Oval Frames Die Set. Here’s another quick look:
