I’ve been searching for some awesome Halloween paper and came across My Mind’s Eye’s new Mischievous line! Holy cuteness! I will need a few of these kits, for sure. I’ve been stocking up on Apothecary from Echo Park and I needed some new stuff so everything won’t look the same, lol.
I posted the other day on Facebook about my $1.00 bin finds at Michaels Craft Store.. some awesome Halloween stamps! There are more, and I plan to go pick them up soon! How cute are these?
And for only a buck, they stamp great! Although… I am not sure what ‘great’ really is seems I don’t really use stamps. I chalk that up to the fact that I don’t really OWN many stamps, lol. I have a folder of some I designed though.. Thinking of making them availiable for digital format.. Anyhow.. My new paper came today so I had to play! I gotta say, I LOVE the touch of light blue in this line! So different for Halloween!
Here’s my simple little card using my cheapie stamps…
I stamped onto light grey cardstock and then cut them out… inked the edges a bit. I like how it came out!
I also love the pleated trim! Do you?… Here’s how to make a paper pleated trim:
- Cut 1 or 2 strips at 12″w and 1.5″h. (for my card at 7″w I cut two strips, one at 12″w and one at 8″w to create one long strip)
- Drag out your score board and score at 1″, 1.5″, 2.5″3″ and so on… you will want spacing like so… 1″,1/2″, 1″, 1/2″.. like so:
- Run a line of adhesive tape down the center. (Sorry for the cruddy pic)
- Then, pleat fold at the 1/2″ marks like so.. Adhere two strips together if needed.. You can make these any size you’d like! Enjoy!
Easy, right?! Adds a nice touch to a card, bag, etc.
I hope you all like my little card! Thanks for stopping by!
