Don’t you just love it when a simple change of colors completely changes the way a stamp set can be used? Two stamps are used in my card today – one is pretty specifically a Halloween set, while the other is an all-purpose stamp set that becomes a Halloween set when the right colors are added. 🙂 Here’s my project:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Mask, Ink Up, Unmask, Color, Huff, Stamp, Clean, Stamp, Snip, Glue. It’s That Easy. To create the oval, I masked the images above the word “Halloween” and stamped the image in Tangerine Tango (I used the masking technique I shared yesterday). I then peeled away the tape and colored in the houses and trees with Stampin’ Write Markers. I huffed the stamp and stamped it down. I cleaned the stamp and then inked it up with Rich Razzleberry (just to get the “Happy” banner, which I snipped and added to the other images.
- Draw the Line + One. The four black lines along the base of the card front are stamped with Draw the Line. The three rows of circles are also stamped using that set. I inked up a pencil eraser to add color to the circles – I worked really hard to make sure they were imperfectly placed inside the circles (maybe I didn’t work THAT hard to stamp them imperfectly, but it was the look I was going for).
- A Halloween Color Combination. I created another Halloween project yesterday that uses only orange, white and black – you’ll see that soon. For this one, though, I added some fun by pulling in purple and green (Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive). I think they belong in Halloween just as much as orange and black. Feel free to save off his color combination if it also inspires you.
