I am so excited to be a Guest Designer for the next 3 months with SparkleNSprinkle!  I have tons of ideas to work on, so I hope you love my projects!

First up, my reveal project!  With Halloween just around the corner, I chose to work with “Cackle On” (743).

I will list all SparkleNSprinkle products used at the end of my post for easy access.  On to my project!

First up, I took Hyacinth Cardstock and cut to 4”X5.25”. I inked up my Spiderweb embossing folder with Versamark ink, inserted my cut piece of cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot.  Next, I took my Black Magic Embossing Powder, covered the entire embossed cardstock, tapped off the excess and heat set.  Doesn’t that look cool?

I took a strip of Tear-ific ½” Tape and added it across the side of the cardstock.  I removed the backing and added Night Sky SparkleNSoft.  Next, I took Dimensional Glue and added some dots randomly over the corners. I added Sassy Silver Glitter to each glue dot for embellishment.  Love this technique!  I set the piece aside to dry while I worked on my main image.

I stamped the Witch image from the Cackle On stamp set using black ink.  I used my Big Shot and  Spell-Binders scallop circle die to cut out the image. Then I took some Dimensional Glue and added some highlights of the broom for emphasis.  I sprinkled some Brown Fizz Embossing Powder over it and heat set.  It makes a cool “puffy paint” effect!  I used Brushable Glue around the edges of the scallops and added Black Suede Velvet Glitter to the glue for a little added sparkle. For the sentiment, I stamped it on a piece of white cardstock and dovetailed the ends with scissors. I used Versamark over the entire piece, sprinkled Clear Detail Embossing Powder over it and heat set for a shiny effect.  Then, I punched a hole in the end & added a small piece of purple ribbon for decoration.

To assemble the card, I used Tear-ific Tape to adhere the purple cardstock to my white cardbase.  Then, I used Foam Squares to adhere the witch image & sentiment.   I just loved how this card came together and had a lot of fun creating it.
