September Stamp Night Projects – Vintage Fall, Mascarade Cat, & Deer Tag

Here are the projects I did for September Stamp Nights.  The last night this month is on Tuesday since third Thursdays are now for my Scrapbook night.

The first one is my Vintage Fall card.  This is the Wonderfall stamp set with matching Autumn Accents die.  I stamped the leaves using the Rock’n’Roll technique, sponged the edges, crumpled the leaves, then sponged the creases too.  {TIP:  You have to die cut your leaves before stamping in order to line up the image on the leaf.  Ink up stamp, set upside down on table, then line up top of leaf and stem before touching down cardstock on your stamp.}

My Mascarade Cat card for Halloween is one of the cards I made while at Craftaway Studios.  I heat embossed the Frightening Feline stamp with black embossing powder on Very Vanilla.  The moon and mask are made with Champagne Glimmer paper.  I used the Tasteful Trim die with the Big Shot to cut the double scallop trim as a starting point to making the mask.  Just cut two scallops off, shape the ends with scissors, and punch eyeholes with the bigger hole punch on the Crop-a-Dile. {TIP:  Use circle punch for moon by punching almost half a circle on edge of paper, then move circle punch a little further into the edge to punch out the crescent moon.  I used the ¾” circle.}

The Deer Tag is made using the Owl Builder punch.  I used Soft Suede and Early Espresso for the deer and antlers.  The antlers are two legs of the large snowflake from the Snow Flurry die.  The nose is made with the ½” circle punch and Red Glimmer paper.  I used the Uni-ball Signo White Gel Pen for the eye detail and the Early Espresso marker for the mouth.  The tag itself is using the Two Tags die and Natural Composition Specialty paper.  {TIP:  Use two-way glue pen directly on face then place eyes and nose to keep from getting glue on your fingers.}

We also put the recipe in our Technique Journal as our page for this month.

Scrapbooking designs coming soon!
Happy Stampin’!!!
