Halloween Card Making Class

Monday, August 18, 2014
My friend Melissa asked me if I would hold a Halloween Card Making Class.  I am not totally INTO Halloween, and yet I am not TOTALLY against it either.  I love the fun parts like trick-or-treating and what kid doesn't want to don a costume to pretend to be something or someone else just for one night. The new Holiday Catalog
goes live on August 28th!! (only 10 more days!!) If you want to get your hands on one of these catalogs I will be happy to get one to you, all in the hopes that you will love it too, and place an order with me!  You can shop Stampin' Up! on line ANY TIME just click HERE to get started
Here are the details of the HALLOWEEN CARD MAKING CLASS
WHEN: Wednesday, September 17th 10:00 AM
WHERE: right here in my craft room.
COST: $10.00 which will include 6 cards (and envelopes) 2 cards each of 3 designs.
This is a card that I made to whet your appetite
This card was cased from the new Holiday Catalog on page 47.  The stamp set is called TEE-HEE-HEE and is a totally clear photopolymer stamp set which is perfect!  Even lining up the little clothespins were a breeze to add.
Let's see how I did this card...
I started with Shimmery White Paper for the base
and using the ink in the LID of my Classic Ink Pad and my AQUA PAINTER I "painted" my sky in Bermuda Bay Ink.  You can let this dry naturally or if you are impatient like me you can use your heat tool on the low setting to dry it before adding any more stamped images.
Then using my trusty PROJECT LIFE Journaling Pen and my handy dandy ruler I marked the clothesline
 Now all it was, was a matter of "hanging" my items on the clothesline.  I used Memento Ink for the black items (LOVE this new black ink!)  the witches long johns are stamped using Tangerine Tango classic ink.
The witches dress (?) was stamped on a separate piece of Shimmer White Card stock, cut out by hand (fussy cut) and attached to the line with dimensionals

The reason you use the Shimmery White Card Stock instead of The regular Whisper White Card Stock is because you are adding water to the card and the Shimmery White will hold up better.  First I hung a Tangerine Tango Dress on the line but then realized that in the catalog they used HELLO HONEY and I like that so much better.  I was wondering why mine didn't look quite right.
 I made a boo-boo when I was stamping the insides of my cards so had to cut them apart, trim them down and attach them to a Bermuda Bay Card Base (5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4")
And - Voila`! I like it even better!!  Don't you love it when that happens??
I am not always faithful at stamping my envelopes but I thought the bats looked kind of cute.

Thanks for stopping by!
