I ink blended my background with foam domed daubers using these Catherine Pooler Ink Colors: Chiffon, Catching Rays and Glitz. I stamped the Spooky Pumpkin Frame onto the ink blended background using Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink. I stamped the Fright Night sentiment  trimmed it with the Deckle Trimmer and popped the sentiment up with foam tape. I backed the sentiment with a piece black mat cardstock, trimmed with the Deckle Trimmer. I used dies from my stash to add three black  bats to the panel. I used a piece of yellow cardstock for a mat and placed it onto black A2 Card Base.

Spellbinders New Glimmer of the Month and Embossing Folder of the Month

Hi - It's new release day at Spellbinders and I created this card with the Spellbinders Embossing Folder of the month and Glimmer of the Month Kit https://shrsl.com/3on6s  The Glimmer Kit features a full roll of  Copper Foil. I also used the new Scattered Fall embossing folder of the month: https://shrsl.com/3on6k



The embossing folder is beautiful! It features acorns, leaves and flowers. 
The hot foil dies features beautiful leaves that form a half a frame. There is a die that cuts the hot foil leaves frame. The sentiment says "I am thankful for all you do." There is also a mini leaf and mini flower hot foil die and cutting dies for each. The set also contains a branch with berries cutting die.   
The copper hot foil looks great! 


For my card I embossed cream colored paper in the Embossing Folder for my mat layer. I embossed white paper in the folder also.  I die cut the white embossed paper with the Candlewick Rectangles Etched Dies from Spellbinders: https://shrsl.com/3on7e   I added a mat behind that using rose gold foil card stock. 

To finish my card I used rose gold foil cardstock as a mat layer behind the sentiment. I cut both the sentiment and the rose gold foil cardstock using a square die and I titled the die to make a diamond shape. 

 Thank  you for visiting my blog!

Vintage Grungy Card - Technique Junkies

 

Hello, Tracy Shultz, The Hopeful Crafter here with a grungy card for Technique Junkies that features two stamps from the August Technique Junkies Release. I used a sentiment from the You're Vintage set of four and the Vintage Paris Advertisements Stamp. Don't forget to use my code: TJ10Tracy to save 10% on your Technique Junkies order. 

I created a YouTube Video of my card. You can watch it here:

To create my card, I first sprayed my background panel with Harvest Sunset, Gold, Chestnut Mare and Worn Saddle Shimmering Bliss Sprays. I dried this and then stamped the Paris Advertisement stamp onto this panel with VersaFine Claire Nocturne Ink. I then embossed the sentiment using the same Nocturne Ink and clear embossing powder. I cut the sentiment panel and my background panel out with my Deckle Trimmer. I also deckle trimmed a mat layer for the sentiment (also created with shimmering bliss sprays). I splattered Gold and Copper metallic water color paint over the panel and the sentiment with Finetec Metallic Watercolor Paints. I popped the sentiment up with foam tape and adhered this to the mat layer which I glued to the background panel. I mounted my card onto an A2 black card base.
