Happy Halloween

I know, I’ve been remiss in posting to my poor blog lately.  I share my LWD projects but rarely anything else.  Well in honor of Halloween, here’s a canvas I did with some Basically Bare, Art Anthology, and Authentique (with a little Tim Holtz thrown in – gotta have that!).


Yeah, I had FUN!

Until later………………………..

LWD Design Team Showcase: Pin Up Queen, Day of the Heads, & This Old House Dylusions Stamp Sets

Good morning everyone!  Today I want to share with you a tag I made using three of the new Dylusions Stamp Sets:  Pin Up Queen, Day of the Heads, & This Old House.  I just LOVE these stamp sets!  They are very versatile and exceedingly fun to work with.


First, I stamped  the Pin Up Queen body onto a piece of card stock, along with one of the skulls from Day of the Heads using Distress Ink in Black Soot.  I colored her and the skull with Copics in YR68 & G02, LePlumes in E852, Y625, & R808, and finally Spectrum Noir in EB1.  Then, I carefully cut out just on the edge of the black line left by the stamp.  Yes, it was a bit fussy, but I loved the edge I got.  If a little white shows, running a Black Soot Distress Ink pad down the edge will help (but be careful, you don’t want a smudged edge).


Take a #10 manila tag and stamp the face house from the Dylusions This Old House set using Distress Ink in Black Soot and then emboss with clear embossing powder.  You want to use a #10 manila tag because these stamps are fairly large.  Now stamp it again on a piece of scrap paper and cut out slightly inside the line - this becomes your mask for the next step.  Trimming the mask just inside the stamped line keeps you from leaving a halo around your stamped image during the next step.


Position mask over the embossed stamped house and spray with Dylusions Mists in Squeezed Orange, Lemon Zest, and White Linen.  Remove the mask (save for future use).  Dry with your heat gun.


Use the following Distress Markers to color your house:  Barn Door, Vintage Photo, Brushed Corduroy, Pine Needle, and Mustard Seed.


Stamp and cut out the “sassy britches” saying from the Dylusions Say It How It Is stamp set.  Adhere the body, head, and words to the tag.  VOILA! You’re done!
