Hey Friends! It’s EK, and I am popping in with a little bit of fan art I created using several stamp sets from Ilse and Charlene. This collection has a whole host of great stamp sets featuring different girls, and I have been kicking the idea around for some time about combining them to create a little homage to my favorite Halloween Movie. I don’t know if I quite captured the look I was going for, but I sure had a lot of fun trying.
Step One: Trim a piece of watercolor to 6×4.5 inches. Stamp girl images from Floral Girls, Halloween Party, and Make a Wish stamp sets onto Watercolor paper, masking where needed. I picked three different gal images trying to capture a likeness of three famous movie witches.
Step Two: Peel up the masks to reveal the stamped images.
Step Three: Watercolor the images focusing in on the skin and hair. I used ECD’s Watercolor Palette.
Step Four: Finish watercoloring the image.
Step Five: Blend ink around the edges to create a haze. I used Shabby Shutters Distress Oxide.
Step Six: Trim a piece of black cardstock to 8.5×6 inches. Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the watercolor paper to the black cardstock. Die cut a halloween sentiment from the Words 3 Happy Holidays die set. Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the sentiment to the cardstock.
While I did not quite capture the three witches from my favorite spooky movie, I am still going to matte this piece and frame it for the Halloween Season.
Do you ever try to capture pop culture themes with your stamps and dies? Let us know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.
Hello – Samantha here! Today I am sharing a Halloween-themed card. Halloween might not be wildly celebrated here in Australia – but I have always enjoyed the colour schemes and fun images associated with this holiday. I also enjoy eating candy and chocolate…
Step 1: Using black cardstock die cut the spider web and adhere this to a black card base measuring 10.5cm x 15.5cm .
Step 2: Using bright pink cardstock die cut the spider web – use the negative pieces and insert these into the negative space of the black outlined spider web.
TIP: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to the back of the pink card before die-cutting to make the adhering process quick and easy.
Step 3: Repeat step 2 to fill in the remaining negative spaces using bright orange and purple card or specialty paper.
Step 4: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to black card stock and die cut the spiders 3x.
Step 5: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Basic Black). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
Step 6: Using watermark ink – stamp the sentiment. Apply a generous amount of white embossing powder and heat set with a heat gun/tool. Trim to size as shown.
(Optional) Add machine stitched detail to the spider web.
Step 7: Assemble card – use foam tape to adhere the sentiment and spiders. Embellish with enamel dots and a twine bow. Adhere to an A6 side folding card base.
Hi, it’s Sandy Diller here with you today. We are at the end of October already but I think there is still time for one more Halloween Card. I kept this card simple, yet fun, with some flying bats and a spooky graveyard. I used the Spiral Circle Pull Card for the base and then added some great elements from Karen Burniston’s Halloween Collection.
Hello, it’s Caz and today I am here with a little Halloween Treat Idea. This one is great if you have some special little trick or treaters coming to visit. By using the Oval Pull Card Pop it Ups die in a slightly different way you can create this fun bag topper.
It’s Frances here, and it’s my turn to post a Pop it Ups Wednesday tutorial today. With Halloween only being about 3 1/2 weeks away I thought I would create a Halloween card.
When Karen Burniston first shared the Anita Frame Pop Up with the Design Team, I mentioned that I could see a face. Well, ever since then I have been wanting to play with the die to create a face. The inside of the card is supposed to be a pumpkin with the face carved like they do for Halloween, sitting in some grass. If you can’t see a pumpkin, well I am sure you can see a monster which still works for Halloween … so either way! This idea might also work to create a Santa face for Christmas, Frankenstein or even an Owl!
It’s Frances here and it’s my turn to post a Pop it Ups Wednesday tutorial today. This time round I am playing with a few of Karen Burniston’s new dies to create a Halloween card. My card features Whiskers the Cat sitting on the witch’s broomstick. I think the poor witch has fallen off it by the looks of the witch’s hat and shoes lying on the ground…. oh dear!Continue Reading
