White Christmas Cards - October Card Club Projects

Hi Stampers!  I have four cards to share with you today from my October Card Club workshops featuring the White Christmas Stamp Set in the Holiday Catalog.  My Card Club members were given a choice of four designs to choose from for their first project.  I had fun watching them make a tough decision!!!  I'm not sure which one was the most popular one:)

Watercolor Technique on a Shimmery White Card Stock
I love this watercolor technique to color the background using an Aqua Painter!  It adds an artistic impression on a beautiful Shimmery White Card Stock.  All you need for this technique is an Aqua Painter, Shimmery White Card Stock and a Classic Stampin' Ink Refill of your choice.  First you need to stamp the tree image on a piece of Shimmery White Card Stock in StazOn Black ink and let it dry.  Apply a drop of Ink Refill in a plastic ink palette and watercolor the background using your Aqua Painter.  You can adjust the shade of your color by adding more water from your Aqua Painter or add more ink to your palette.

Halloween Mini Scrapbook and Winner of September Free Stamp Set


Here is a super cute Halloween Mini Scrapbook we made at my Scrapbook Club last month.  Isn't it adorable???  I love the color combo (Bermuda Bay, Tangerine Tango and Crushed Curry).  I took these colors from the Motley Monsters DSP to design my scrapbook.  In fact, Bermuda Bay is a color I don't normally pick for Halloween but I LOVE it now!!!  Don't you???

Can you believe we created the base of this mini scrapbook with a piece of 12" x 12" Basic Black card stock?  With a simple scoring and folding technique we created a few pockets to insert a page to add more space to scrapbook.

I love the new Note Tag Punch!  I simply punched two patterned paper from the Motley Monsters DSP and stamped one image from the Merry Everything Stamp Set which coordinates with the Note Tag Punch!  And then threaded the White & Tangerine Tango Trim through those three tags.  I embellished the other two tags with Mr. Pumpkin from the Fall Fest Stamp Set and the sentiment from the Ghoulish Greetings Stamp Set.  Very Cute!!!

Fall Fest Halloween Shadow Box Card

Happy Friday!  Here is an adorable Halloween Shadow Box Card we created at my recent Big Shot workshops.  It's so cute!!!  I think the black and white patterned paper from the Motley Monsters DSP pack is so perfect for the background.  Can you see the tiny eyes right behind the tall pumpkin??? 

Here is a close-up shot of the card from the top.  Mr. Ghost is sort of "floating" in the background with a skinny strip of Window Sheet.  He moves when you shake the card!  Can you believe this card becomes flat so that you can put in an A2 envelope and mail it to someone special in your life??? 

These adorable pumpkins are from the Fall Fest Stamp Set.  I stamped them on a piece of Shimmery White Paper (see page 193, #101910) instead of Whisper White Card Stock.  I wish you could see the difference!  I have found the Shimmery White Paper works great especially with our Photopolymer stamps. 

Supply List
Stamps - Fall Fest, Ghoulish Greetings, Holiday Invitation
Paper - Basic Black, Shimmery White, Motley Monsters DSP
Ink - Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie, Tangelo Twist, StazOn Black, VersaMark
Tools and Accessories - Old Olive Marker, Blender Pens, Linen Thread, White Emboss Powder, Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool
Big Shot - Fun Fall Framelits, Circles Collection Framelits, Snowflake Card Thinlits Dies


Thank you for stopping by today.  I also made a Christmas version of this Shadow Box Card using the Festival of Trees Stamp Set.  It's really cute.  Can't wait to show you!!!  Have a wonderful weekend!!!  It's going to be another busy football weekend for my family.  GO WOLVES tonight!  GO WOLFPACK on Saturday!  GO SEAHAWKS on Sunday!!!  Can't hardly wait.......
