Halloween Is Almost Here!

I thought today I would post a few of the great Stampin' Up! convention swaps that I received this year. Plus, they are Halloween themed! I am having so much fun stamping and decorating for Halloween this year. Here we go!Check out this great Halloween technique card that Karen Albin made. She used the embossed wax paper technique for the background. The quick story is: Use an embossing folder in your Big Shot with wax paper in the folder, this will "dry emboss" the wax paper. Sandwich your wax paper in between 2 pieces of glossy white cardstock. heat up your iron and iron the glossy cardstock. Peel waxpaper off glossy, and let cool. Brayer the glossy cardstock to bring resist to light. Pretty cool hun.
She used the Haunted House Stamp Set.
Here is a reverse making card that Theresa Argonza-Gomez made. Short story on this card is that she made a mask/stencil out of the scraps after using the Big Shot to cut out a tag from the Two Tags Die. Sponge the background and then stamp overtop.
Stamp Sets Used: From the Crypt & Teeny Tiny Wishes (my fav!)
The last card is a surprise card by Lisa Horton. Although it is beautiful from the outside, the inside is even better!
Check out that inside vignette!
The gravestone is mounted on "springs" so that it becomes a pop up card when you open it. Great idea!
Stamp Sets Used: From the Crypt, House of Haunts, Wicked Cool, Graveyard Gala
