Evil Pumpkins

Posted by Susan on Monday, October 26, 2009 in ,

This card turned out much more ominous than I thought it would, but I really liked the effect, and it was so simple. I just took the pumpkin from the SU House of Haunts set, stamped him multiple times at random on a piece of designer paper and embossed him in black embossing powder. I also embossed the Happy Halloween sentiment on the same paper but made it a tag instead. When it was all done I was going to attach it with orange ribbon but the green seemed to set it off just enough.

Paper: K&Company Halloween Whimsey designer paper, black cardstock
Stamps: SU House of Haunts, Inkadinkadoo All Hallows Eve
Ink: Versamark
Other Supplies: Black embossing powder and certainly celery ribbon


hehehe, there's a special ink pad called "versamark watermark pad", it's kind of like glue in a stamp pad. You take your stamp, put it in the versamark and then stamp it on your paper. Then you sprinkle it with this powder called embossing powder (which comes in a butt load of colors). Tap off the excess and heat it with an embossing gun (basically a heat gun specially made for scrapbooking). It's a great effect.

Here's a video:
