a2zscrapbooking - November Challenge

I need to point out that I tried something new and rather than stamping onto paper, I stamped directly onto a wooden tag. I began by stamping the script background design with black ink and then heat embossed white snowflakes. Next, I sprayed the wooden tag with blue mist so that the wood grain would show through.  I was inspired by the movie, "Home Alone"

Winter Wonderland (Sin City Stamps)

Supplies:  Winter Wonderland Stamp Set (Sin City Stamps), clear acrylic mounting block, wooden tag, black ink pad, blue spray mist, white embossing powder, heat gun, white crackle paint, glitter glue, chalk, wooden snowflake, ribbons

The a2z Scrapbooking November Challenge this month at  is “WINTER”!  The complete set of rules to participate can be found HERE.  Instead of just using Hero Arts products on your project you can use any products you have in your stash.  One challenge winner will be randomly chosen and will receive the digi stamp of the month. This month’s digi is Vintage Travel.  If the winner uses a Hero Arts product, they also receive a $20 Gift Certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking Store.

Magic Night Tag - Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge

Hi Friends,
Here is my project for "A walk on the dark side" You can find out all the guidelines to participate,
as well as, some great inspiration here at the Simon Says Monday Challenge.
I did some multi-generational stamping to build depth within the piles of keys. A single purple ink pad produced many shades of purple. A light dusting of black chalk around the edge completed the spooky overtone. The perfect finishing touch was the addition of gold glitter glue on the candle flames.
This week the Simon Says Stamp Challenge is pushing you to think about all things Halloween or use dark colors on your project. The theme is "A Walk On The Dark Side". As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.
