Hello there! Todays tutorial is a quick project that you can make using your Halloween stamps and the heat embossing techniques. On this, I am combined VersaFine Clair, VersaMark and Memento Inks with our traditional Embossing Powders.
Skill Level: Beginner
Time to Complete: 30 Minutes
Stamp a Halloween background onto your colored card stock using VersaFine Clair Nocturne.
Cover the inked area with Embossing Powder and melt it with a heat tool. On this step, you can use clear embossing powder or black embossing powder.
With an Ink Blusher or sponge apply Memento Ink Grape Jelly around the stamped background.
TIP: You can stamp your background onto white smooth cardstock and then ink all the area with your selection of Memento Ink.
With VersaMark Ink stamp the sentiment on the center of the card and covered it with White Embossing Powder. Melt the powder with the heat tool.
Ink the center or your card using Memento Tangelo Ink.
According with the stamps and colors of card stock that you used you can enhance some details using additional colors of Memento Ink. In my sample, I used purple card stock and three different colors of Memento Ink: Grape Jelly around the card, Tangelo for the Center and Paris Dusk for the corners.
To embellish the card, you can use a coordinated die cut. I am using a witch die that I cut onto Silver Metallic cardstock three times. I layered pasted all the die cut images with On Point Glue to add more dimension. And as final touch, I gave an additional color to the face on the pumpkin using Memento Dual Tip Markers.
Assemble your card pasting all the layers with Tear It! Tape or Crafty Foam Tape.
