  • Arrange the same Whisper White cardstock piece with all of the alphabet letters and their insert pieces inside the Woodland Textured Embossing folder and run through the Big Shot.  NOTE:  Die cutting the alphabet letters after texture embossing will cause the raised embossing to flatten as it goes through the Big Shot.

  • Adhere the main portion of the Whisper White layer to the Basic Black cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Lay the B-O-O letters in place, but only add liquid glue to the alphabet inserts and set into place.
  • Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the alphabet letters B-O-O and set into place.  NOTE:  pay special attention to the letter O’s and matching up the correct embossed tree trunks and branches.
  • Ink the Trick or Treat sentiment from the Spooky Cat stamp set with Archival Basic Black, stamp in the center of the Lemon Lime Twist strip, cover with Stampin’ Clear Embossing powder and heat set using the Heat Tool on high setting.  Add to the bottom portion of the Basic Black cardstock matte layer leaving a gap between this layer and the Woodland embossed layer.
  • Adhere the Black Vintage Crochet Trim with a light line of Multipurpose Liquid glue to the gap area of the focal layer and wrap the ends to the back side of the Basic Black layer.
  • Adhere the focal layer to the Thick Whisper White cardstock base.  Add medium-sized Black Rhinestone Jewels to either side of the Trick or Treat sentiment; and add Mini Black Sequins to various spots on the Woodland embossed layer using a small dot of Multipurpose Liquid glue.

Tutorial: Soot Stamping

 

Sootstampingtammy

Supplies:

  • Stamp Set: Merry Mistletoe
  • Ink: Real Red, Old Olive
  • Paper: Real Red, Basic Black, Old Olive and Glossy Paper
  • Misc: Big Shot, Holly Embossing Folder, Old Olive 1/8” Sheer Ribbon, SNAIL Adhesive, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Stampin’ Sponges

Measurements:

  • Real Red: 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”;  4 1/8” x 3 1/8”
  • Basic Black: 5 ¼” x 4”
  • Old Olive: 5 1/8” x 3 7/8”
  • Glossy: 4” x 3”

Instructions:

  1. Take your glossy paper, and add color using your Stampin’ Sponges and Real Red and Old Olive Ink. You must do this step before the “soot”—you can’t add color after the soot step.    DSCF4015
       
  2. Using a Candle (I used a taper candle, as it was easier to handle) or lighter, “burn” your cardstock—the flame will need to actually touch the cardstock to create the soot. Be careful along the edges—it tends to catch fire!  Keep going until you have the desired amount of soot for your card.  Be VERY careful with it – the soot is removed very easily with your fingers, the wick, etc!  In the picture below, I was trying for just a touch more soot, and touched the cardstock with the wick:                                          DSCF4018
        
  3. Once you’re happy with your soot, very carefully “stamp” – you’re not using any ink at all. The stamp with remove the soot, and leave behind the color! DSCF4021
  4. Once finished stamping, spray your piece with an Acrylic Sealer so that the soot stays in place!
  5. Emboss your Old Olive piece using the Big Shot and Holly Embossing Folder.
  6. Adhere your soot piece to the Real Red Cardstock.
  7. Wrap the Old Olive Ribbon around this piece – I did it 3 times—then tie a bow!
  8. Assemble your card. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere my main image to the card base.
