Cards - Halloween & Fall

Workshop November 12, 2016 - Item 1

This workshop featured packaging and gift giving ideas.   There was also a Thanksgiving card made.   One of the reasons I like the Butterly Basics Stamp Set is because it can be used for many seasons, not just late summer.

  • Directions:  First, use the stamp on and stamp off to stamp a lighter fern.   Ink on the flower stamp by applying the markers Rose and Deep Yellow on the flowers and Old Olive to the leaves.    Give the stamp an "AH" breath and stamp down on paper.  The "AH" technique is use to reactivate any marker ink which may of dried while you were apply the marker to the entire stamp.  For the butterfly, I mixed Rose, Old Olive and the Crumb Cake inks to give the butterfly some texture.






More Pumpkin Designs

I want to share another pumpkin design card I sent out to a few friends.   I used Stampin' Up!'s Basic Black, Basic Gray and Whisper White card stock.  For the pumpkin stem I used the Dazzling Diamonds (#135315 $5) and shaded it with a permanent black marker.   Instead of stamping ink, I used black embossing powder (#109133 $5).   The background texture is the Hardwood Stamp Set (#133032 $20).
