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.

Learn How to Water Color a Halloween Card with Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray

by Jowilna Nolte

Hi everyone, today I am sharing a gorgeous embossed Spider Web theme background using Fireworks sprays. One of my favorite techniques with Fireworks is to remove the lid and use the ink as a watercolor. First I stamp a grungy bird with VersaFine Clair. Since VersaFine is an oil-based ink, the stamped area will not lift when water-based inks are applied. This is an important feature to understand about VersaFine.

Hope you enjoyed this quick lesson. Create your own variation to make cards, Halloween decor, Fall, and other festive holiday crafts. Combining orange, purple, and black ink with a touch of gold creates a stunning end result.

Customize Window Cling Vinyl for a Mason Jar with StazOn

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

by Lori Warren

As the leaves turn color, they not only mark the return of Fall, they also mark the time for crafters to start their Holiday makes or gifts. One of my makes this year is a hand-stamped jar to fill with home-made bath salts. Stamping on such a curved surface can be a difficult task. One way to turn this challenging task into an easy one is to use StazOn ink to stamp on Window Cling Vinyl, it makes decorating a jar with a hand-stamped image, a breeze!
