How To Create A Rich Purple Tone-On-Tone Halloween Party Invitation

How To Create A Rich Purple Tone-On-Tone Halloween Party Invitation

by LeeAnn McKinney

Hi there friends and fellow crafters, it’s LeeAnn and we are getting a bit inky today with StazOn ink pads and embossing powder. Making this Halloween Party invitation was fun and easy and the techniques used here can be used with any theme.

Using Clear Mboss just made the gravestone and skeleton images stamped on the front pop, not only with shine but texture as well. Since StazOn is a mixed media ink the embossed surface was color-matched with the background for a great tone-on-tone effect.

Hello Crafty Friends! Today, I will show you how to make a small Halloween table decor or party decor for Halloween. We will construct a witch’s hat using two circles cut out from Rinea Foil to create the base of the hat and the cone, pointy top of the hat. Then we will go over how to stamp and emboss pumpkins from a Joy Clair stamp set and color in with beautiful orange and light brown inks.

This is a fun crafting project that can be finished in an easy crafternoon! Each witch hat can be decorated in a unique style or you can make them all look uniform. This project can be changed to be a kids’ craft. Be sure to use supplies that are kid-friendly.

Quick and Easy Projects: Create a Marble Effect on Paper

by LeeAnn McKinney

Greetings crafty friends! I was watching YouTube and came across this shaving cream ink marbling technique from GinaK and just had to try it. This is a quick, fun card style to make, you can use any re-inkers you have in your stash and mix/match with plain colors and beautiful metallic tones as I did here. As I say in the video, the Golden Glitz really makes this card for me. This technique can also be used on all sorts of paper crafting projects.

Since it is the fall season, I focus on a warm color palette for an Autumn leaves look and stamped the sentiment with a rich brown to compliment the yellow, orange, and gold colors. This card design is a perfect way to spend an afternoon crafting and coming up with multiple card designs with a marble look. The shaving cream can be used to make several card panels until you run out of the medium.
