Welcome back friends! It's day #2 of revealing new August release products. Today it's all about Halloween and we are introducing you to Storybook Halloween stamps and dies + Haunted House stamps and dies + Boo Black Cat stamps and dies + Cover Plate: Pumpkins die.
There is a new storybook set and it coordinates with the dies released from the previous Storybook: Christmas stamp set.
In a recent stamp room tidy up time, I came across a box of ready-made crimped craft cards. I decided to use one for the background with these books. I also found some really old patterned paper that had some glittery swirls on it.
STAMPS: Storybook: Halloween
INK: Green Parakeet, Orange Zest, Amethyst Allure, Cocoa Bean, True Black, Bright Buttercup
PAPER: Crimped Kraft; Honeynut, White; Halloween patterned paper
DIES: Storybook: Halloween, Storybook: Christmas, Border Bling: Leaves
The Haunted House is really fun to decorate and I took some creative license and altered the architecture so it would fit an A2 size card.
STAMPS: Haunted House
INK: True Black, Orange Zest, Lemon Tart, Bright Buttercup, Dylusions lime green spray ink
PAPER: Orange & Black textured paper; White, True Black
DIES: Haunted House, Love to Layer: Scalloped Circles, Cover Plate: Pumpkins
OTHER: White Prismacolor pencil
The pumpkin cover plate is another fun die which is so versatile with all kinds of fall images!
My last card today features this fun hair-raising cat!
The moon was embossed twice with WOW! Sunburst embossing powder. Doing it twice gives it a smoother, more dimensional coverage.
It's difficult for me to get good full coverage with black ink, so a MISTI tool is a must to be able to repeat the stamping multiple times.
STAMPS: Boo Black Cat
INK: True Black, Versamark
PAPER: Crimped Kraft, True Black, White, Textured Green, Patterned paper (Halloween Basics by Recollections), Silver glitter cardstock, Marvelous Magenta
DIES: Boo Black Cat, Charming Tags, Stitched Circle
OTHER: WOW! Sunburst embossing powder
That's all for day two. Be sure to stop back tomorrow for more awesome reveals! ~Wanda
