Step 1 
Print the Halloween backgrounds papers and elements from the Crafter's Inspiration Magazine Issue 15.

To create a blended ink border, pick up Carving Pumpkin Distress ink using a sponge or a foam blending tool. Working in circular motions, apply ink to the borders, blending towards the centre as you go.

Step 3
Cut 3 strips of different patterns of background paper of 3cm x 17cm. Layer the strips in matt black cardstock.

Cut out the "Happy Halloween" sentiment and layer it in matt black cardstock. Run the blade of the scissor along the borders to give it a distress look.

Step 5
Stick the stripes and the banner to the bag top of the bag as shown. 

Step 6
Use the circle die to cut the  "Trick  or treat?" element. Add foam pads in the back and layer it onto a scalloped circle of  purple Centura pearl.

Step 7
Affix the "Trick or Treat?" to the centre of the bag. Cut out the Ghost  and the bubble speech from the papers and attach them to the banner's top. 

Step 8

Cut out the three pumpkins from the CD elements and stick it to the bag's bottom.

Step 9
Finally,  create two little bows with the ribbon and attach them to the bag's handles.

Stunning 3d embossing

Hello Crafters

Hope you are ok. ๐Ÿ’–Today's project is a stunning card made with the fantastic 3D embossing folders from Crafter's Companion. Give a try ๐Ÿ’–they look fab !

You will need:
Crafter's Companion 3D Embossing Folder - Country GardenCentura Pearl

Golden foiling

from my lovely friends from My Besties Art Spain. Good luck everyone ๐Ÿ€

Foiling Technique

Step 1

Emboss a piece of watercolour cardstock with the floral 3D embossing folder. Colour the embossed design (the raise area ) with Spectrum Aqua Markers in pastels colours, blend the colours with a wet brush for a smooth looking image. Let it dry for 10 minutes.

Step 2
Use the adhesive pen to add a few thin lines to the coloured images. Allow the adhesive to dry to a transparent but tacky finish before applying the foil (shiny side up ) then rub gently with your fingers. Remove the foil to reveal your design. Repeat in all the areas with glue.

Step 3

Add a subtle shimmer with the Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen in the flowers. Let it dry. Add few half pearls of the centre of the flowers. Mount the piece in a matching cardstock slightly bigger then attach to the blank to finish.

Hope you like it ๐Ÿ’–Thanks for stopping by.

Happy crafting !
