Happy Friday stamping friends!
I'm so excited to announce that I am part of the Waffle Flower Inspiration Team with a weekly video series called, It's In The Details. Every Friday I will share a new video featuring amazing Waffle Flower Stamps and Dies! Let's get this party started with a little spooky-cute fun with the brand new Trick or Treat Stamp Set and coordinating dies!
To begin, I stamped the group of pumpkins, fox, broomstick, witch hat, and bats from the Trick or Treat Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. I used the MISTI to stamp my images one on top of another three times to get the boldest, crispest black stamped lines for coloring. I often find that the image isn't as crisp as I want with the first stamped impression. The MISTI is a great way to stamp the images one on top of another quickly and easily to darken the stamped lines.
I colored in the images with Copic Markers, being sure to pay attention to detail on the pumpkins, coloring them different shades and adding dotted detail to a couple of them for additional detail and interest. Once colored I die cut the images with the coordinating Trick or Treat Dies.
I always like to make sure the eyes on critters "pop"! One great way to achieve that is to add detail with black and white glaze pens.
The images are cute but a great background is what makes this spooky scene all come together! Using one of the new Lacy Layers 2 Dies, I die cut a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" rectangle of smooth white cardstock, being sure to keep all three layers to complete my card design. On the inside rectangle I stamped a greeting and the stars from the Trick or Treat Stamp Set using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I achieved and embossed resist look with Chipped Sapphire and Wilted Violet Distress Inks. I love how the greeting and starry background "come to life" with the addition of these bold, beautiful inks! I applied these same two Distress Ink colors to the outside frame as well.
Once the paint was completely dry I adhered the outside inked frame in the skinny white frame (the leftover piece from die cutting the two inked panels) with foam adhesive on the back and adhered them to a card front. I adhered the inside scalloped rectangle to the card base and added the colored and die cut images to complete the sweet scene!
