First up, a spooky Halloween card showcasing the new PPP Stitched Film Strip Die. Love, love, love this die, my friends. I stamped the SSS Fog Cardstock background with an oldie (retired now) Hero Arts Large Web Background Stamp using SSS Fog Ink. I stamped the greeting using a sentiment from the Mama Elephant Bootastic Stamp Set. I masked off parts of the greeting to create a stacked sentiment rather than the longer horizontal one. I traced over the web with the Sakura Stardust marker to get that fun sparkly spiderweb background.
I die cut two of the PPP Stitched Film Strip Die from SSS Black Cardstock and two from SSS Slate Cardstock. I layered and adhered the two frames to my card as shown, inserting the slate "inside" pieces into the openings of the black frames for subtle contrast.
I stamped the cute images from the Mama Elephant Bootastic Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, then colored in the images with Copic Markers (the individual marker colors are linked below in the supplies). I added detail to the eyes with my favorite black marker and glitter detail to the "black" areas on the stamped designs with the Wink of Stella Glitter markers. I die cut all the images using the coordinating ME Bootastic Creative Cuts dies.
I finished the design with a sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh sequins.
I am still loving shaker cards and thought it would be fun to create a shaker tag. Even though the temps are still warm here in my neck of the woods I know the holiday season will be upon me before I know it so having some gift tags on hand ready for gift wrapping will be so handy!
I used the adorable Mama Elephant No Peeking Stamp Set to stamp the critters and peppermints for the "inside" of my shaker, coloring the critters with Copic Markers (the individual marker colors are linked below in the supplies).
I've created a video below to show the steps for putting together this shaker card:
