Cards for Human Society Fund Raiser
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2015
A big thank you to Kathy Shugarman of Denver, North Carolina for donating 5 darling cards to our Human Society fund raiser. Her cards all feature animals in some pretty cute poses! Kathy took each card “to the next level” by adding embellishments like sequins and dimensional features like glitter glue and Glossy Accents.
Look closely, on the card with the puppy (left), Kathy made some of the butterflies from shrink plastic!
Thank you, Kathy for sharing your cards with us and for helping save animals lives.
On this card Kathy used paper and a stamp that appear to match. She highlighted the paper with clear glitter glue and painted the little monkey with Glossy Accents. The pinpoint circle die is perfect for highlighting the moneky's fun pose.
The duck is on an Action Wobbler so he moves in the window -- how clever!
Don’t forget that we have Kathy’s cards and many others on sale for $5 each here at The Stamp Act. Stop in and support helpless dogs and cats with your purchase. Thanks!
More Customers Cards -- Halloween Edition!
Since I am featuring customer cards today I thought I would share with you some Halloween cards I have received from customers. I am so delighted to see what you create with the stamps and dies you buy at The Stamp Act. Please feel free to send me photos of your cards so I can share them.
Halloween Hill – Linda Jones of Port Richey, FL very creatively layered embossing, dies and vellum for a very spooky look. Starting with a white folded card, she embossed the top of the card with a spider web embossing folder. She adhered the witch to this background then layered over the top a piece of orange vellum cleverly hiding the glue or tape with a border die that looks like dripping goo! She die cut the Halloween Hill die from black cardstock and adhered it to the bottom of the vellum. Thanks Linda for sharing your spooky Halloween creation. Supplies used: Impression Obsession dies Halloween Hill, Halloween Icons and Icicle Border; spider web embossing folder; design by Linda Jones
Harriet Head of Las Cruces, NM took the same focal image (Memory Box die Bat Cave) and gave it 2 different eerie looks. For the green card, she used a spider web stamp in the mouth of the cave -- it looks like she embossed it with a holographic embossing powder because it has a multi-color sparkle. For the purple card, Harriet used decorative paper as a background behind the cave and for the moon. I love the clouds she used on top of the moon -- very Halloween-y clouds!
Supplies used: Memory Box die Bat Cave; Paper Smooches die Halloween Icons; spider web stamp; design by Harriet Head
Harriet's spooky haunted house card is packed with delightful icons. She admitted it took her a long time to put it together! Thanks for your effort Harriet because this card is really inspiring! Notice how she stamped the Tree Border behind the haunted house die to add depth to the scene; how she distressed the moon with black ink and the shingles with white ink for a spookier look; and how she "mined" her Halloween dies to find the right little images to add to her scene. The little ghosts are sequins; the cat and the gravestones are from IO Halloween Hill (see Linda's card above) and the little witch is a vintage punch! The very appropiate sentiment is from IO's clear stamp set If the Broom Fits. Thanks Harriet!!
Supplies used: Memory Box dies Old Haunted House; Impression Obsession die Halloween Hill; IO stamps Tree Border and If The Broom Fits; Taylored Expressions Halloween sequins; design by Harriet Head
