Witching You.... a Haunting Halloween
Images © 1990-2007 Stampin Up!

This is one of the cards created for the Holiday Hooha series. The girls each purchased a new stamp set and then created 20 cards of a single design. This card was created using the set . If you are a demonstrator and have emailed me for the class details I appreciate your patience, I will be sending out a mass email today with all of the details.

More to come... there were 2 other stamp sets featured at the hooha class and a tool time presentation as well that I am hoping to upload this week, be sure to check back for more projects and ideas with a Halloween theme.

Project Details

Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery, Whisper White

More Project Details
Using the dots from Three For You, stamp a row of dots in Basic Black Craft ink along the top and bottom of card. Heat emboss with iridescent ice embossing powder. Repeat this step for the main image of the card as well. On the card itself.... stamp a random star pattern with vanilla craft ink, allow to set for 10-12 sec and then blot off leaving a faded image behind (faux bleach technique). The main image was watercolored using colors as mentioned above, after image dried more dazzling diamonds glitter was added to the hat and cape.

Halloween Fun Coming Soon!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, truthfully there really isn't a holiday that I dislike but Halloween is definitely in the top picks. I am attempting to create more hand stamped home decor to compliment some of our existing Halloween decorations. I have also put together several Halloween cards and hope to post them this week, they were featured in my Holiday Hooha class series. If you are a demonstrator and would like more information about the Holiday Hooha class series, please email me at kylamaestas@msn.com I would be happy to share the class format with you.

Check back throughout the week for some spooktacular fun!
