Hey you swinging Gourd-geous thang!

Release day 3 is here and I have a Jack-o’-Lantern swinging by to scare you!

The Rabbit Hole Designs’ ladies are at it again! This gourdgeous pumpkin can be added to cards, treat bags, tags and anywhere pumpkin spice lovers unite! This stamp can be found at the The Rabbit Hole Designs store and our new friend, Simon Says Stamp.

This top folding 4.25 x 5.5 card is made by using this stamp, glitter gel, a stencil and a swing mechanism. Here is what I did:

  • First, I used The Crafter’s Workshop Small Aspen Trees stencil and spread Gina K glitter gel over a 6×6 heavy duty card stock. Wash your stencil. Let this result dry.
  • Stamp, color and cut the gourd. I left off the little shadow on the bottom on the pumpkin – this on is going places!!
  • Cut the components of the interactive swing from My Favorite Things. I used acetate for the “swing” part to make it look even spookier! There are Youtube videos on how to use this awesome die!
  • The die set also includes these cloud dies; cut a black and purple set and adhere them a bit offset.
  • Stamp the sentiment.
  • Ensure the gel is dry. Line up the black and purple “clouds” to the stencil result. The die is only 4″ across. Match the size of the clouds to the stencil and cut accordingly. There will be a nice white border on the left and right sides of your card.
  • Take a separate 4.25 x 5.5 card stock and die cut a circle on the lower part of the card stock. You will use this to color the background.
  • Place the card stock (without the circle) over the stenciled background and use a yellow-ish Distress oxide to create the moon.
  • Place the circle you just cut out and place over the yellow moon. Use Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide to create the background. Work from the circle to the outside.
  • Build your swing, adhere the sentiment and watch that baby swing! If you want the pumpkin to swing even stronger, place a penny on the back of the gourd.

I have a second card that only takes a few minutes to make. Simple fussy cut, added dimensional tape and a spooky background piece of paper.

Remember to stamp the sentiment before you place dimensional tape behind the card stock. I used the Versafine Claire stamp pad.

The only thing you may or may not have in your stash is the rectangle, stitched die from My Favorite Things. I have added the link to Simon Says Stamp.

Hex-yeah

It’s already time for copious amounts of candy and a chance for our alter egos to shine through silly costumes. It’s also time for a brand new release from The Rabbit Hole Designs. I made you two cards to bring out your inner witch!

This release is also available at Simon Says Stamp. And if you order from Simon Says Stamp, you will receive this free gift with purchase.

This top folding 4.25 x 5.5 card was easy to make and I used some simple card making techniques.

  • Black heat emboss the lovely legs stamp on a 4.25 x 5.5 card stock.
  • Make a mask for the stamp. I used SSS masking paper. Fussy cut and apply to the stamp.
  • I used the Fluffy Cloud die from Sunny Studios and made my own “border stencil” to mimic clouds in the sky.
  • Purple and pink Distress oxides help give the clouds that “fluffy” look.
  • Cut the colored skies card stock at an angle with the Fluffy Cloud die.
  • Remove the mask and color the stamp. I used Copics. (Disclaimer: I have heard that coloring heat embossed images with Copics is a no-no because it destroys the nibs.)
  • Stamp the sentiment with Versfine Black Onyx in the right corner of the top folding card.
  • Randomly stamp bats with the same ink.
  • Attach the colored card stock to the card base with double sided tape or liquid adhesive.

Easy techniques but quite a dramatic result!

Make sure you come back tomorrow for Day 2 of our Inspiration Hop.

Every order placed will be eligible for a 10% discount. Discount Code TRHD2019 this code will only be accepted until Friday 08-30-2019 12:01 am PST. EXCLUDES Dies and Crafters Essentials. Not applicable to previous orders. May be used more than once. Does not apply to shipping and tax.

Here is the second one that is just a shaking!

  1. I created the background by using black Gina K Designs Glitz Glitter Gel and the Diamond Flower Stencil.
  2. I sloppily applied the gel on a heavy duty card stock big enough to cover a 4.25 x 5.5. top folding card. Clean and dry the stencil.
  3. Stamp, cut and color the stamp. Stamp the sentiment.
  4. Once the gel is dry on the paper, use a frame die, like the MFT Square stitched frames, and make a shaker using a sheet of acetate.
  5. Adhere dimensional tape to the back of the frame.
  6. Add sequins to the center and adhere the frame enclosing the sequins.
  7. Use double sided tape on the stamp and the sentiment and you’re done!
