Let me show you how to create this ‘Spooky Season’ Card!
With Halloween just a few weeks away I thought it would be fun to create a simple Spooky Season card and feature the 2nd Generation Stamping Technique.
For those of you that have never tried 2nd Generation Stamping, I have created a short HOW-TO video for your convenience. Before we get to the video, however, let’s find out what the definition of 2nd Generation Stamping is…
2nd Generation Stamping is a technique used to show color variations on a project, such as I did with the stars. It can also be used to show depth, such as I did with the pumpkins.
For this project I decided to work with the Boo Crew Collection, particularly the stamp set and the nectarine gingham paper. I also brought in a little black cardstock to help enhance the overall theme of Halloween.
Provided is a visual list of the products used to create the cute card shown above. When you click on a link, a new browser window will open up. This makes it easier to shop my Close To My Heart Website for the items you need to create this project.
