I decided that I should mix the oldest Halloween stamp I have with some newer items I've picked up this year. At Michael's, many moons ago, I purchased this Hampton Art Witches Boot stamps. So this set comes with 2 different designs of boots, a little hanging spider, a spider web, a die for the boots and a Halloween sentiment.
Watch the video here.
More information below.
It's a fun set and I thought I would make 2 of the same card design but each one with different colors. So I blended both backgrounds using either a orange or blue color combination. For this I used Bristol Smooth cardstock and Distress Oxide inks. I love how fairly easy it is to get a nice blend with Distress Oxide inks.
After spending a good amount of time blending that ink I splattered water over the top and let it sit for a moment (1min or so) then soaked that up with a towel. I'm also adding white splatter with Copic Opaque white and some more drops using my favorite Nuvo Drop trick. Link to a similar embossing stylus below.
Now I can stamp the boots and color them with Copic Markers. I did however leave the stamps in the Travel Stamp Platform with out moving them so that I could stamp the stamp images over the top of the now colored images with clear embossing powder. It's a great way to add embossing powder to your copic coloring with out having your copics touch the embossing powder. It's not good for your nibs but I have done it in the past with out issues. I do however have one marker that white embossing powder discolored the nib, though it still works fine. It's your supplies use it how you feel comfortable using it.
So after using copics then embossing with clear embossing ink I cut out each boot with the coordinating die. Then used that die again to die cut black foam. I used some liquid glue to adhere the foam behind the stamped images and set aside to dry.
I also cut down each background with a Lawn Fawn Dotted rectangle die. This is the largest out of the set I have and cuts at exactly A2 (4.25 x 5.5 inches). So those backgrounds can be adhered to a Neenah 110lb Solar White card base and fully cover the front of it. Then I did some more die cutting. I made the fancy white frames by using the WRMK Quickutz Label 7 nesting die, or I like to call them fancy square dies. Using 3 sizes I made the frames by nesting the largest and the smallest then the largest and the medium size then attaching them so that one is offset and makes a fancy frame. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Bwahaha and was embossed with Ranger white embossing powder then layered behind the frame and trimmed. The jewels are from Ink Road Stamps and was a bonus item that came in an order I bought. So far you can not buy these particular ones but Lara does have other gems for sale.
The inside I stamped the Halloween sentiment on Papertrey Ink's Royal Velvet cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder. I separated the words and trimmed them down into strips. I used my Xyron Sticker Maker (the little X one) to add adhesive to the back. I also stamped the spider and the web around the sentiment.
