Jana Maiwald-McCarthy’s Sugar Skull Halloween Cards
Hello Jana here and I created a set of Halloween cards using Sugar Skull Cling Stamps and Dies Set from Stampendous. My color combination is simple and bold black and white, with touches of watercolors. I think they turned out pretty cool!
Glitter from the Frantage Encrusted Jewel Kit were used to highlight two of the images by adhering with Dual Tip Glue Pen. I tried to color one of the sugar skulls, but my skills are not the best 😉
For texture and interest, I added glittered tulle behind the Sugar Skulls. 3D Foam Squares were used for dimension and E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser adhered everything else. Happy Halloween!

Vicki Chrisman’s Polar Bears Card
I fell in love with these Polar Bear Cling Stamps and Dies and decided I wanted to use them to create the card I’m sharing here today. Using non-traditional Christmas colors on this Christmas card, I did a watercolor effect on my background using Distress inks. Next, I stamped the bears and pieces of ice, colored them and die-cut using the coordinating dies in the Polar Bear Cling Stamps and Dies.
The die-cuts were placed on the card panel using 3D Foam Squares White Mix. Rarely do I create a card without using 3D Foam Squares – they give great dimensional effect. You have the option of black or white squares in different sizes, and there’s even rolls of Crafty Foam Tape.
I have a tutorial on creating the background color up on my blog today if you’d like to check it out. Click: Vicki’s blog
