WC Splash Pcs

This card was a fun one to make!
I used the Oval All stamp set. Colors used were Cameo Coral Re-inker, Melon Mambo Ink & card stock, Shimmery White card stock & Whisper White. You will also need a spray bottle, Aqua painter, Big Shot with the Manhattan Flower Impression plate, Sizzlits Little Leaves die, heat tool, White embossing powder, White Craft Ink or Versamark, Oval punch & Scallop Oval punch.

WC Splash Flower

To get the color on the flower you first take your Shimmer White paper and stamp the image with your Versamark Ink or Whisper White Craft Ink. Then you heat emboss with White Whisper Embossing Powder. Spray the image with water, allowing the water to "pool" in the spaces between the embossed lines. Dip the tip of the Aqua Painter in the ink (from ink refills) then touch the pools of water. And watch it spread thru the water. Start with the lightest color first. Should use at least 2 - 3 colors. Have fun with this. It is amazing technique. If you would like to learn about more techniques join my technique club. Click Here

Sweet Center

In this card I am using the Sweet Centers Stamp set and the Sweet Center cups. How fun is this!!
I used Pumpkin Pie, Green Galore & Whisper White cardstock. Elegant Eggplant Ink, Black Gingham Ribbon, Big Shot with the Embossing Plate "Weave" & 1-3/4 , 1-3/8 Punches.

To put this together I added the candy to the cup and then put the square Pumpkin Pie pc onto the cup. Then I snailed around the backside of the Whisper White stamped pc and attached that to the cup. I put Stampin' Up! dimensionals on the back side of this. Then I put this on the Pumpkin Pie cardstock that has been run thru the Big Shot with the "Weave" plate. Then finish by putting this on the Green Galore cardstock and add your ribbon and tag. Thank you for stopping by. If interested in learning this technique and more click here.

My daughter asked if I would make her a toolbox for her husband for father's day. He had asked for a life size toolbox of course. I said sure I can come with something that would work for what she needed. She had wrapped this one up and gave it to him as his toolbox that he wanted. (He also got the real life size one also.) So this is what I came up with, thanks to the help of Natasha Hein. The letters were done with the Big Shot Die Cut machine and the Naturally Serif die. The brads and the top piece are from the Silver Hodgepodge Hardware. For the template for the toolbox Click Here.

Big Coffin

Big Coffin
This is the bigger version of the small coffin I posted previous. This will take 1- 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of card stock for the bottom and a 1/2 sheet for the top. I basically did it the same as the small but added 2 spiders and my skeleton dude to the inside. For the eyes on the bigger one I put in crystal brads verses the silver brads. Needed a little bit more bling. For the Templates see below on previous post.

Small Coffin

This is a 3D swap that I did for our Demonstrators meeting this month. I had allot of fun making it. The original Coffin pattern that I used was on Martha Stewart's Website. That was 2 Pages 8 1/2 X 11 piece of paper. So I wanted it smaller, so I took and reduced the copies in the copier. I used Stampin' Up! stamp set "From the Crypt" for the face and spiders. I took a Blender pen and White Craft ink to color in the face. There are silver brads for the eyes. For the lining inside the coffin I used a gauze pad (1st aid gauze) and sponged it with Creamy Caramel. Then I took and tore the edges to make it look older.

My daughter seen this and showed her daughter and know we are going to make these for her Halloween treat holders for school. I am also going to do this for one of my Techniques next month, for my Technique club. So if you are interested in joining my club so that you also can have this much fun. Look at my club info on this blog, call or email.
Below are the templates that I used. Thank you for stopping.
