Hang Your Broom (#SD1123)

I created a video and posted it on my YouTube Channel demonstrating how to make these cards:  

To create these cards, I used Pixie Spray to spray the back of the stencil. This is a low tack adhesive, available at Technique Junkies, gently holds stencils in place but won't tear paper. I used Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink to ink blend the Drippy Moon Stencil. Then, I stamped the Sentiments on white cardstock and trimmed them with my deckle trimmer. I had some dies in my stash that I used to accent the stamped panels. I used some ink to ink blend the edges of the stamped panels. I used foam tape to adhere the panels to the stenciled card base, then adhered the finished card panel to a black A2 card base.  

Thank you for visiting - Have a Hopeful Day!

Technique Junkies - Zombies and Bloody Halloween

 Hello! Do you love the popular Zombie TV show? I sure do! I was super excited to see this new stamp from Technique Junkies called Zombies from the September 2021 New Release. I paired it with the Bloody Halloween sentiment, also from the September 2021 new release.

I created a video of how I made my card:

To create my card, I followed these steps:

1. Using Masking paper, I cut a circle out and placed the masking paper (not the circle itself but the paper around the circle) down on an A2 Card Panel (Hammermill Premium Color Copy Cover paper, size 5.5" x 4.25")

2. Using Catherine Pooler ink in Black Jack and a foam domed blender tool, I lightly ink blended the circle to create a moon. I removed the masking paper. 

3. Next, I used the new Simple Ground Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs to create the ground that the mummies are standing on. I used Catherine Pool Black Jack ink to ink blend the ground. 

4. I stamped the Zombie stamp with Catherine Pooler Midnight Archival Ink.

5. I used Pan Pastels and the Cloud Edger Stencil to create a spooky sky in purple and grey. 

6. I stamped the Bloody Halloween sentiment with Catherine Pooler Midnight Archival Ink then fussy cut the sentiment. I used foam tape to pop the sentiment up on the card panel. 

7. I used a foam domed blending tool to ink blend the edges of the panel and then adhered it to an A2 card base.
