STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:
Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base with Stampin’ Up! Soft Suede card stock and the Stampin’ Trimmer. Layer a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Early Espresso card stock on an angle as shown and adhere with Snail Adhesive.
Using the Stamparatus (read about this must-have stamp positioning tool here), stamp the texture stamp from Spooky Sweets stamp set on a piece of 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 piece of Sahara Sand.
TIP: Brush a small amount of water over the stamped areas with an Aqua Painter. This adds a soft “sepia” affect. I learned this technique from Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Mike Funke. Check out his gorgeous fall card and video demonstration. Adhere the Sahara Sand layer slightly on an angle to the card base with Snail Adhesive.
Use the Stamparatus to stamp the three bats, moon and “Happy Halloween” sentiment on Sahara Sand card stock with Soft Suede Ink. Use the Aqua Painter again on the bats and moon to create a “sepia” effect.
Crop the bats using the coordinating Stampin’ Up! Spooky Bats Punch. Crop the moon using the Twinkle Builder Punch. Adhere bats and moon to the card using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Crop the sentiment with the stitched die from Stitched Labels Framelits Dies. Wrap twice with Linen Thread and tie in a bow. Adhere to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Using the Twinkle Builder Punch, crop stars from Stampin’ Up! Gold Foil Sheets and Early Espresso card stock. Adhere two largest stars with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhere the balance of the smaller stars with snail.
Add self-adhesive gold metallic pearls – three on the moon and one on the sentiment.
Crop an Early Espresso polka dot pattern with the envelope liner die (Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies) and adhere to the outside flap of a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope.
