Hi everyone, happy Sunday! I hope you're having a great weekend so far! Jaydee is our Paper Players hostess this week and since it's a fifth Sunday, it's a Tic-Tac-Toe! Lots of great choices in this one, perfect for your fall or Halloween stamping! So here we go:
For my tic-tac-toe row, I chose the middle row across: orange, die-cut and Halloween! I pulled out some of my favorite Halloween sets (I have SO many) and went to work! These stamps and papers are from Close to My Heart, and I used some retired SU products as well!
I began by stamping the fence in Memento black, using my Stamparatus to line them up! I stamped some swirly background images, then added my little ghost, shaded with Blends, and a few glimmer bats!
Next, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the cat in Memento Black, then cleaned my stamp and inked it up again with Versamark ink, then heat embossed it with black embossing powder to get a really dark image! I love how it really stands out on top of the fence! I added a glimmery spider web, and in hindsight, I should have added a little black spider!
But the most fun part of this card is that it is kind of interactive...when you open it up, this pops up! My hostess yesterday wanted to make a card that had some action, so this is the card I designed, only ours used SU products (I'll share that one later). Again, these sentiments are all from CTMH, the "BOO!" diecut is from a past SU die, cut in Pumpkin Pie glimmer paper:
Here's a side view of the pop-up part...it's really easy to do, if anyone needs directions, I'll try to make up a little tutorial Here's another view:
