Trick or Treat | #STAMPtember

Hello and welcome! Simon Says Stamp is kicking off their annual STAMPtember celebration today with a blog party! This means I’ve got a fun giveaway/coupon at the end of this post! Here is a link to the entire new release!

I’ve got three notecard-sized shakers, 3 1/4 X 4 1/2, to share today, made with their new Trick or Treat stamp set. I picked this notecard size after hitting Pinterest to find out what the traditional sizes were. What I realized is that you can pretty much do what you like! Woot! After all, you are the artist.

I started with the cat stamp for the first of my three shakers and knew I wanted it on a border. I stamped him in the corner of a panel of cardstock and used a pencil to lightly outline the part of him I would have to cut. Then, I used a ruler and my craft knife to cut out my cat border for the orange shaker. I used Pinkfresh Studio inks to color his background and even used one of those weirdly shaped small blending brushes that are included in some bulk packages of blending brushes to add some lines and interest to the “sky.” I stamped the sentiment directly on the orange background. Then, I added orange and yellow sequins and used two layers of foam tape with my cat frame with its acetate window.

For the witch stamp, I stamped the hat and sentiment onto a panel of cardstock with black pigment ink and clear heat embossed them. I then cut it to size and used a couple of Papertray Ink’s Simply Chartreuse and Ripe Avocado ink pads to color the panel, finishing with a little bit of black ink just around the edge. I used a couple of circle dies for my border and applied acetate to it using double-sided tape. Again, two layers of foam tape and a small amount of sequins, and I was done with this card.

For the bat stamp, I again used Versafine black pigment ink to stamp the bat, sentiment, and moon on a panel of white cardstock, then clear embossed them. I used my Pinkfresh Studio family of purple inks to make the sky, added purple and blue sequins (similar to these), and used acetate (folded over the edges of the card and adhered to the back) to turn it into a panel shaker card. I used Hero Arts Fancy Dies, cloudy sky scene dies with white cardstock, and layered some cloud die cuts on top of the panel shaker. Then, I made a cardbase for the panel and taped it down. And I was done!

If you have any questions, leave a comment, and I’d be happy to respond. Here is a link back to the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember blog party page. Please consider following me @Anne_Fiene, on Instagram. A link is at the top of this page.
