Hello everyone!! I'm kind of excited to share today's project and video with y'all. It's been mulling in the back of my mind for a couple of weeks now and after some trial and error (and a really late night to get everything done and edited) here it is:
These are definitely not cards - I laminated everything with my little Xyron Creative Station Lite, and backed all the characters and images with repositionable adhesive so that they can be moved around to dress them up and create fun little Halloween scenes!
These were SO fun to make - and once I figured out the adhesive part (I explain in the video - basically I pulled the laminate off the back of the stamped images and replaced it with the repositionable adhesive) they're actually pretty easy to make too!
I used Distress Inks to create the backgrounds - which were then die cut with the Lawn Fawn Leafy Tree Backdrop dies - both Portrait and Landscape. I used black card stock with the same dies to create the silhouette for the "scenes" before using the sponged distress pieces to inlay in the black card stock die cut. I then run everything through the Xyron with the Double-sided Laminate cartridge (I wish I'd got one of these machines years ago - SO many things I could have made with it).
All the images were stamped onto Bristol smooth card stock with SSS Intense Black ink then coloured in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water brush.
I hope you guys enjoyed today's project! I'm running out of time to create Halloween-themed projects but it's been SO fun (and I'll have at least one more - maybe squeeze in a couple on top of that!). I'll have all the links to the previous videos from this year, and stay tuned b/c I'll be jumping right in to Christmas and Holiday projects SOON!
