"BOO!" page

OK, this was the page we did for September Stamp Club, in October! The story there is that I had the flu when we were supposed to have club. I know we all like to share, but not the flu! So, instead of the last week of September, we had club the first week of October. I could not wait to try this technique with Cosmo glitter and Crystal Effects to make these glittery letters! And I got to use more SHIMMER PAINT! I love this stuff! It was a bit time consuming to do the whole page at club. The effect is gorgeous though, so it was worth it :) And this fun page would work for kids or adults. You know there are lots of adults who love to dress up for Halloween too :)
  • Stamps: From the Crypt
  • Paper: Basic Black, Elegant Eggplant, Cast-A-Spell Designer Series paper
  • Ink: Elegant Eggplant
  • Other: Signo white gel pen, Frost White Shimmer Paint, sponge dauber, Crystal Effects, Orchid Fine Cosmo Glitter, toothpick, Stampin Up! Alphabet Simple Letters dies with Big Shot, chipboard, Scallop Edge punch
  1. Cut out chipboard letters using the Simple Letters dies and the Big Shot-use the letter "i" for the exclamation point. Run a line of Dotto on a piece of scrap paper and adhere letters to it. Ink up the letters with Elegant Eggplant ink.
  2. Mix about a dime-sized spot of Crystal Effects with a small amount of glitter with a toothpick. Apply thin layer of mixture to the letters with the toothpick. Set aside to dry. Will be dry within a few minutes if you don't use too much :) It will have a nice glittery distressed look when done.
  3. Stamp the brocade image in Frost White Shimmer Paint all over 12x12 page using sponge dauber to apply thin coat of paint directly onto stamp.
  4. Cut a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock to 3-1/4"x12". Scallop one of the long edges with the Scallop Edge punch.
  5. Cut four 2-1/2" squares from the DSP. Adhere to the Elegant Eggplant strip.
  6. Use white gel pen to make faux stitches around edges of the Elegant Eggplant strip and the squares. Adhere about 1/2" from bottom edge of paper.
  7. Adhere letters to the DSP boxes. Adhere photos and additional embellies as desired. All done!
