As we are hearing Halloween, it's the perfect time to create some Halloween cards for family and friends. I used Amasting Casting Products to create the frame and the skull.
I began by creating the frame. Using equal parts of the mold putties, I combined them until I had a solid color with no streaks.
Next, I formed the base for the frame that I wanted to create. I placed the frame on the mold putty and pushed until the design was embedded in the putty. I left the frame in place for about an hour.
And this is the result - a beautifully detailed mold. Some of the color from my frame became embedded in the mold, but that did not affect the final piece.
The next step was to prepare the resin according to the manufacturers instructions, then pour it into the mold I created. Allow the resin to cure per the manufacturer's instructions - 24-48 hours. Since I had some left over resin, I poured it into a silicone skull mold. And these are the results.
I painted the resin elements with red and blue paints to coordinate with the background papers.
To create the card, I used a print I pulled from my work with Gel Press last month. I embossed the print with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, then used Distress Ink across the embossed portions. Since I wanted the skull to stand out, I die cut an oval to place behind the frame and painted it to match the card. Then I adhered the resin elements to the card with Beacon Adhesives.
The Orange Chevron Middy Bitty Bag was the perfect size to use with the scarecrow stamp - one of JoyClair's newest releases. Think how much fun this would be to fill with little goodies and then leave on everyone's place setting this season.
Stamp and color the scarecrow image on white cardstock. Ink and distress the edges before matting it with brown cardstock.
Stamp Happy Fall Y'all on a gray tag then tie it to a white tag with Bright White Divine Twine.
Next, wrap the Bright White Divine Twine several times around the image, tying it in the corner. Spread out the Twine and then adhere the panel to the bag, inserting the tags behind the image.
I stamped the fence posts first, then masked them and stamped the pumpkins. I used lots of brown ink to finish the card then wrapped ribbon around the panel before matting with orange cardstock and adhering to a brown card.
