I'm here to share two more inspiration projects with you, today and to, of course, remind you to visit our August Release Blog Hop! We're offering several chances to win Sparkle Blends--including one lucky winner who will get the full August Release Grand Prize! YAY!
For my first project, I started with an A2 panel of white, Copic friendly cardstock. I stamped these adorable images from the Perfect Pumpkin stamp set by Newton's Nook in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, using post-it notes to mask the pumpkins & create a little cluster. Before coloring them with my Copic markers, I used my Kraft Knife to cut out 3 of the pumpkins to use as my mini-shakers.
After coloring, I backed the shaker windows with clear acetate & used foam tape to create 3 separate small shaker boxes. I added a generous amount of Very Cranberry Sparkle Blends to each little box, and then popped a white A2 card base on the back, so none of those shaker bits could escape.
I added a little Sakura Clear Stardust pen to the kitty's hat and the "Eek!" sentiment hanging from the spider web & a touch of pale color on the web itself
I finished off the card with the cute & punny, "Happy Mewo-oween!" sentiment.
For my second project, I decided to play with an oldie but goodie, the retired Hampton Art Haunted stamp and stencil set (I only used the stamps, here). I took an A2 panel of smooth white cardstock and stamped my scene, with the fence, haunted house and witch, using Versafine Onyx Black ink--Clear embossing the fence with Ranger Clear embossing powder so it would be shiny. Next, I selected a stitched circle die from my stash & did some partial die cutting to create a moon shape, finishing the cut with my scissors.
I used Scattered Straw, Mowed Lawn & Hickory Smoke Distress Inks to color the background & moon with my Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool. I added the "Open if you Dare" sentiment with Versamark ink, and heat embossed it with Ranger Super Fine White Embossing Powder.
I selected an A2 white card base & lined it up with the panel. Then, I adhered the Moon shaped cut out to the A2 base with Multi Medium Matte. I backed the window with clear acetate & used Darice Double Sided Foam Adhesive Strips to create my shaker box.
I added a generous amount of Something Wicked Sparkle Blends to the shaker box & then added the top card panel to finish off this simple, no frills shaker card.
