In honor of Friday the 13th...

I have to show this HALLOWEEN hanging!

Oh my goodness, Prickley Pear has a new fall release!

I love the stamps! So fun!

This was the first piece that
I made with the stamps.

I used some dominoes from Janice (thanks Janice)
to put the words on. So different working with that material.

The Alcohol ink I used worked really well on
the dominoes, but they were not very easy to drill.

This was also the first time I tried stamping with acrylic paint
I love the look of the acrylic, it kind of makes it bolder.

Solid Paper-Archivers
Adirondack Black Dauber
Luminarte Shimmer mist
Gold Shimmer Spritz
Ribbon- May arts, SU and Michaels
Old dominoes painted with Alcohol ink
PK glitz glitter
Embossing Folder-Checkerboard
Martha edge spiderweb punch
Lifes Journey Letter stickers
Crystal effects
SU edge distresser

First thing you want to do is to drill the holes in the dominoes (top one gets 2 holes on the top and 2 on the bottom, the bottom one only gets two holes on the top) . After the holes are drilled you want to add the alcohol ink to the dominoes. Just add colors that will go with the final project. On the fronts of the dominoes add a piece of coordinating paper. Over that add the “HAPPY” letters to the top domino, and the “HALLOWEEN” letters to the bottom domino. Now for the middle panel… Stamp the tree image on the orange using the acrylic paint dubber. The dubber will make the stamped image a little thicker and to me a little more spooky. Stamp the image again on a lighter orange with regular ink. Add crystal effects to the pumpkins on the lighter orange paper. Cut out the pumpkins once the crystal effects is dry. Add those pumpkins to the acrylic stamped image. Distress the edges of the orange panel add it to the black paper. Add punched images to the top and bottom of the black panel. Run the back panel through the Cuttlebug with the embossing folder. Punch holes in the black panel so you can attach the dominos with ribbon. Tie the whole thing together with the ribbons.
