Got a minute? Here’s my Magic Minute Video Tip!
Yesterday my blog post used the clean & simple Googly Ghouls stamp set (see it online) for a fun fall card. Today I’m sharing another project with the same stamp set, only this time I used all the goodies from the Ghoulish Googlies Bundle (see it online) – both the stamp set AND the Designer Kit with the bags, ribbon and tags.
These little waxed paper bags are super fun – and they only come as part of the Designer Kit. This project was shared on stage at Convention this summer by Shannon West, complete with witchy costume for Shannon. I have to say that *I* didn’t wear a costume when I taught this project at Stamp Club in August, but we still got to make Shannon’s fun bags!
Curious about the fun technique used for the background? I can help you with that! It’s Double-Embossing, and uses both dry embossing with the Big Shot and heat embossing with Embossing Powder and your Heat Tool.
Here are the steps for Double-Embossing:
- Press Versamark Ink Pad directly onto the Chevron Embossing Folder (see it online). Use the Big Shot to dry emboss as usual.
- After dry embossing, pour heat embossing powder over surface. Shake off excess and heat emboss as usual.
Curious about the embossing powder I used to get both the black and the sparkle? I mixed Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (see it online) with some Basic Black Embossing Powder (see it online) – about half and half.
Curious about how to punch a hole in the middle of the Scallop Circle so the little mummy can peek through? Stay tuned for a short Video Tutorial that I’ll get posted soon!
Finally, need more Halloween ideas? Here you can find a good selection of projects from my blog.
Yesterday I shared one of the projects that I designed as a Make N Take for our demonstrator meeting. Here’s another project, featuring the Googly Ghouls stamp set (see it online). If you’re going to get this set, the best deal is to get it for 15% off in the Ghoulish Googlies Bundle (see it online) with the Designer Kit.
Want to see where the inspiration came from? I was flipping through the Stampin’ Up! catalog and came across this simple card for the Little Friends stamp set (see it online). I CASE’d the design for my card above.
If you’re not familiar with CASE, it stands for Copy And Share Everything. In the stamping world, it’s flattering to have your ideas copied! And the Stampin’ Up! catalog is a great place to get ideas for designs and colors.
Let me know if you’d like a copy of the new Stampin’ Up! catalog that came out on June 1st – it’s 209 pages of fabulous stamping ideas! I’m happy to send you a free catalog – you just pay $5 for the shipping, and I’ll include a coupon for $5 off your first order. Drop me an email to request a catalog!
