Welcome to our Holiday Blog Hop and giveaway with our friends at Stampendous! Both design teams are bringing spooky fun or holiday cheer into our projects during the week. Learn tips and techniques and be inspired! Today Linsey Rickett and Margie Higuchi will start us off with their festive card creations.
Mixed Media Spooktacular Card by Linsey Rickett
This mixed media card came together easily with the Stampendous Sugar Skull Cling Stamps and Dies Set and Aperture 5-Jar Kit Embossing Powder. With the help of Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6 inch, it turned out to be a super cool effect!
Create a Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside background with Craft Foils from 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit and Adhesive Sheets 4 x6 inch. Randomly apply an Adhesive Sheet to dry embossed black cardstock (no need to cover entirely). Then randomly apply red and gold craft foils.
Add a piece of water-colored cardstock on to a 3D Foam Creative Sheet from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit. With the Sugar Skull Cling Stamps and Dies Set, die-cut skull, roses and banner. Stamp coordinating images to each die cut with black Versamark ink, sprinkle with Marcasite glitter embossing powder from the Aperture 5-Jar Kit Embossing Powder. Melt with a heating tool. Add the dimensional die cuts to the vellum card panel. Assemble the card using E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser and finish with sequins added using Adhesive Dots Medium.

Loads of Christmas Wishes Card by Margie Higuchi
I love the little red pick up truck and knew exactly what I wanted to do with the Christmas tree! Do you spy 3D Foam Circles as ornaments? Using Foils from the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit, I placed 3D Foam Circles Small Size on top of the ornament design, took off the top liner and applied the different foil colors for a dimensional element to the card. This concept is called “Wear Your Adhesive On The Outside” and I love the effect!
Who still has those decorative edge scissors? I used a pair for my hilly ground – LOL! What to see more? I have a step-by-step tutorial on my blog. CLICK: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L + Stampendous Blog Hop: Loads of Christmas Wishes Card post to visit.
