Pal’s Halloween Blog Hop



Thank you for joining us for the Pals Halloween Blog Hop. We hope you enjoy our virtual trick-or treat hop where you will either learn great tricks for your creative projects or enjoy a blog candy treat. 

You should have just left stop number 12 on the Pals Hop – Lisa Davis at Cherry Street Paper Treats. If so, you are in the right spot.  If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations. 


This is my first attempt at using acetate and I must say….  I love the way this card turned out.

I started with a 5.5″ x 4.25″ of black that I used the spider web embossing folder on.  then I cut a 6″ x 4.24″ of acetate and scored it at 5.5″ so it would fold over the top of the black cardstock. I adhered it with some super sticky tape.  Then I punched out all the pieces and sponged them and assembled.

Card Recipe:

Cardstock:
Basic Black  –  5.5″ x 4.25″
Chocolate Chip – 4.25″ x 1″ (and scraps for the pumpkin stems)
Old Olive (leaves)
Pumpkin Pie (pumpkins)
Whisper White (ghost)
Basic Grey (clouds)
Silver Shimmer paper (moon)

Stamps:  (none)

Ink:
Pumpkin Pie (sponged on pumpkins)
Craft White (sponged on clouds)

Punches:
Oval
1″ circle
Build a Cupcake (clouds)
Build an Owl (ghost)
Build a Bird (leaves)

Accessories:
Deckle scissors (trim across strip of chocolate chip for dirt)
Spider Web Embossing Folder
Google eyes


My TRICK:
Have you even used your snail adhesive and placed the layer 
down only to find out it’s crooked or wrong some other way?  
To get it to lift off easily, use the low heat on your heat gun 
and gently warm up the adhesive and then it will lift off easily 
and be ready to re-apply.

You could also use waxed dental floss between the two 
layers to separate them.  Problem solved!!


The next stop is Nicole Watt at Pixel Maven’s Retreat, stop number 14 on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting – and I hope to see you next month!

Happy Stamping, 

Lisa
