For this sketch I started by some classic paper piecing of the vampire image found on Repeat Impressions Unmounted Halloween Sheet 2300.  Also on this sheet you’ll find some great images include sentiments and these cool bats.

Technique Junkies – Mandala Mistletoe

Hello Junkies!

The Crafty Nurse here with another post showcasing the October Technique Junkies release.  When I was making this card I really wanted to use the Mistletoe stamp in a different way so I performed a bit of stamp surgery by removing the attached sentiment.  Worry not, if you want to use your sentiment again, just put it together on the stamp block and it’s good as new.  Cutting apart your stamps gives a lot of new ways to use them.

Once my stamp was recovered from surgery I used the leaf portion to create somewhat of a mandala pattern for a background.  Before I did this though I created those embossed circles. To achieve this, lay out your circle dies and washi tape them together.  Then run it through your die cutting machine using the embossing folder all at the same time.   Here’s what they look like so you have an idea.

 

For my focal image I stenciled the Hero Arts Reindeer with Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber inks. I fussy cut him out then applied additional shading to make him pop.  My sentiment is from the gorgeous “Christmas Ornaments Trio Set of 9” which I embossed.

I hope you are enjoying the 30 Days of Christmas here at the Technique Junkies Design Team Blog.

Happy Inking
