Happy Halloween! Toil & Trouble Z Fold Shaving Cream Card

Happy Halloween!  May you receive more treats than tricks!  Here’s a treat – a technique mash-up card!  The shaving cream is the background of the focal image (one of my favorite techniques of all time), and it is also a Z Fold card (well, upside down).

Plus, I colored my large gem with a sharpie!

There’s also a secret spook inside when you flip it open!

Washing on the Board (Chipboard, That Is)

I loved this project. I designed it for my stampers this month for our Wickedly Wild About Washi Tape Stamp Camp.

Washi Tape Ideas-Door Hanging

First off, we did the direct to paper (in this case, chipboard) technique with Wisteria Wonder.  Then we embossed the image from the Toil & Trouble stamp set in black.  Added some washi tape, punched a hole and put in ribbon, and added a little sparkly skull and crossbones at the bottom.  A perfectly fun and simple 3D item to hang on a door, cabinet, or Halloween tree!

This image is a quote from a famous William Shakespeare play.  I’ve got a stack of 10 pieces of rectangle chipboard that will be delivered to the first stamper who correctly names the play this quote is from.  Please leave a comment below with your name and the play.  (Comments are moderated, but are timed so I’ll know who is the first one.)

Wickedly Wild About Washi Tape-Skeleton Domino

This week I held my Wickedly Wild About Washi Tape Stamp Camp.  OMG.  I just love this stuff.  It is so versatile and forgiving.  Here is one of my favorite items we made this week:

Washi Tape Ideas-Toil Domino

It’s just a domino covered in our Witches’ Brew Washi Tape!  I stamped on top of it with the skeleton from Toil & Trouble in Staz On ink.  All you need to do is attach a pinback or a magnet – what a darling little item to share!

Toil & Trouble Skeleton Scored Card

At my Try the New Tools Night a few weeks ago, I demonstrated the Simply Scored Borders Plate.  Yes, it has been out for a while, but I never got a chance to show it when it was “new”.

This was one of the cards my stampers created that night – the simple scoring added just the right touch.  The embellishment on top of the phrase was actually a PEARL colored in with a sharpie.
