Lawn Fawn :: Sneak-a-Peek :: Heebie Jeebies


Hey Everyone! I hope your week is going great! Thanks so much for checking out my previous peek of Lawn Fawn's Bannerific + Sophie's Sentiments sets! It's great to hear that you are as excited about it as I am! But, that's not it! Today, I'm sharing another card that features some of the stamps from "Heebie Jeebies." This is such a cute Halloween set and I had so much fun stamping with it. I love using the color combo of purple, orange, black, and cream for my Halloween projects and incorporating raffia trim is just the perfect ribbon treatment! In this card, the raffia trim almost looks like a crazy spider!

The stamp sets will be released and available to purchase here on Thursday, August 12, 2010 at 12 am EST! Check out the rest of the design team's sneak peeks on Lawn Fawn's blog here!

Although I've created projects using multiple scalloped edge trims before, I was inspired by Kim Kesti's card featured on Paper Crafts' magazine's September/October issue cover. Have you all seen this great card! All of the scalloped edges really pop out to you and that design made me want to create a Halloween card using that great technique.

Instructions
  1. Trim patterned paper to about 3.5" x 4.5".
  2. Trim 3.5" strips of rust and purple cardstocks, then punch scalloped edges.
  3. Adhere the scalloped edged strips together on the patterned paper, alternating the rust and purple colors.
  4. Then, take your hand and crinkle and wrinkle them. Make them pop up and down!
  5. Add raffia trim and button treatment.
  6. Adhere to A2 black card base.
  7. Stamp sentiment/web on white cardstock and add distress ink.
  8. Cut out sentiment/web and mat on black cardstock and cut a mat.
  9. Pop sentiment/web off card front.
  10. Stamp bats on black cardstock with watermark ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Cut out bats and pop off card front.
Tips & Tricks
  • Inspiration - Being inspired can be interpreted to mean a lot of things. For me, it's admiring a design style, technique, element, or colors to jump-start my creativity. Here, I was inspired by Kim Kesti's layered scalloped edge technique, even though I've done something like that before, I liked the colors in her design. Make your inspiration work for you in your design. So, instead of using a gradient color palette, I chose to alternate my colors! Make sure you give credit to your inspired designs, even if you've done them in another format to share how your creativity was jump-started too!
