Here’s a fun card I made using a leftover piece from this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit, and the included stamps. Besides the complete materials for the projects in the kit, Stampin’ Up! always provides extra pieces to do your own thing.
Here is a quick view of this month’s kit.
Here is a close up of the goodie bags.
I used a leftover oval tag and stamped it with Tangelo Twist (included in the kit) and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink with the included stamps. I popped it on top of my card with Dimensionals.
Dimensional Support – Designer Series Paper is thinner than cardstock, so besides using Dimensionals in the corners, I also placed one in the center and one along the middle of each side.
Go easy on yourself – I adhered a transfer adhesive sheet to Basic Black cardstock before die cutting the Stripe Scallop piece. That way, I wouldn’t have to apply adhesive to the thin scallps by hand. If you don’t have the sheets, then use Tombow liquid and just dab in various spots around the edges of the die cut. It doesn’t have to go everywhere. Save the punch out pieces of the die for a reverse effect or use for a roof design.
Memento Vs StazOn – When stamping black images, I prefer to use Memento for a nice solid image, especially on the new Photopolymer stamps. StazOn tends to stick to the polymer stamps, but if you do any water coloring, you must use StazOn. For anything else, you can use Memento.
