Christmas Card Workshop 2008 - Card No. 3

This card was my swap for the Founder's Circle Trip and I received many compliments on it. I think red and white together looks so crisp! An easy card, too! For the bow, you wrap the 5-1/2" piece around the Real Red card stock and tape it in place. Make the 6" piece into a circle and hold it together at the ends with Sticky Strip. Then take the 1-1/2" piece and wrap it around the center of the 6" piece, adhering it in the back to the Sticky Strip already in place. Then I attached the bow with another piece of Sticky Strip to the 5-1/2" piece! The recipe is below. All supplies used and shown are from Stampin' Up!
Recipe:
Paper: Whisper White - 8-1/2 X 5-1/2; Real Red - 4-5/8 X 3-1/8; Whisper White - 4-1/2 X 3
Stamps: Take Three
Inks: Real Red Marker; Old Olive Marker
Miscellaneous: Stampin' Dimensionals; Stamp-a-ma-jig (optional, but highly recommended!); Real Red Wide Grosgrain Ribbon in three different lengths to make the bow: 6" long, 5-1/2" long, and 1-1/2" long; Sticky Strip (for holding the bow in place)

Halloween Tea Bag Holder

Ah, the tea bag holder! What a great Halloween treat because it holds a packet of black tea! This project also uses masking. See how the star looks like it's behind the witch's hat? It's so easy to do, and I'll show you how below! To get the multiple colors on the tag, you ink up the different sections of the stamp with markers! I emphasized "drink" since we're giving a tea bag, and the little spider is black! The rest of the tag stamp is inked up with an Old Olive Marker. The recipe is below. All supplies used and shown are from Stampin' Up!, except the black tea bag! For masking, whatever image you want in the foreground is what you will stamp first.
Then take a thin piece of paper - I like to use printer paper - and stamp your image on it, cut it out very carefully so it is exact, and place it on top of your first image.
Stamp the image you want in the background while your mask is in place.
Remove your mask and WOO HOO - the star is peeking out from behind the hat!
Recipe: Paper: Confetti Cream - 5-1/2 X 2-1/2; Confetti Cream scrap for the tag and star; Kiwi Kiss scrap for the witch's hat Stamps: Eat, Drink & Be Scary (P. 5 of the Holiday Mini Catalog); Halloween Frights (P. 4 of the Holiday Mini Catalog - used for the stamping on the back of the tea bag); Nursery Necessities - the star (P. 75) Inks: Elegant Eggplant Miscellaneous: Old Olive Marker; Only Orange Marker; Elegant Eggplant Marker; Basic Black Marker; Tag Corner Punch; 1/8" Hole Punch; Only Orange Grosgrain Ribbon - 5" long; Black Tea Bags; 3/4" Square Punch; Mini Glue Dots (to attach the star); 2-Way Glue Pen; Dazzling Diamonds Glitter; Stampin' Sponges; Paper Snips

Halloween Card Using Spotlighting

Oh, soooooo scary, but oh, sooooooooooo fun! This is another card that we made at the Howl-O-Ween Camp Wannastamp! If you are turned off by a detailed image that requires a lot of coloring in, don't be turned off anymore! You can use the spotlighting technique and then you only have to color in the portion that is spotlighted! All you do is stamp the image on two pieces of paper, then punch out a 1-1/4" circle from one of those images. Color in only the punched-out circle, adhere it to a 1-3/8"circle in a coordinating color, pop-dot it in place on the unpunched stamped image, and you have a fun spotlighted card! What you may not be able to see very well in the picture is that I sponged ink in the background because, after all, it's twilight and it's spooky outside! It's time to go trick-or-treating! The recipe is below. All supplies used and shown are from Stampin' Up!, except the cute little googly eyes! This sample doesn't have googly eyes on the mummy, but it's adorable when you add them! Recipe: Paper: Pumpkin Pie - 8-1/2 X 5-1/2; Very Vanilla - 3-1/2 X 3; Tangerine Tango - 3-5/8 X 3-1/8; Kiwi Kiss - 3-3/4 X 3-1/4; Ghostly Greetings Designer Paper - 4-1/4 X 2-3/4; Basic Black scrap for spotlighting Stamps: Tableau of Terror (P. 27) Inks: Basic Black; Lovely Lilac; More Mustard Miscellaneous: More Mustard Marker; Orchid Opulence Marker; Certainly Celery Marker; So Saffron Marker; 1-3/8" Circle Punch; 1-1/4" Circle Punch; 2-Way Glue Pen; Dazzling Diamonds Glitter; Googly Eyes; Black Gingham Ribbon - 11" long; Cutter Kit (to distress the edges of the Very Vanilla card stock); Stampin' Sponges; Stampin' Dimensionals; Stamp-a-ma-jig
