Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | 12 Weeks of Halloween 2018 – Week 10
We’re getting very close to the end of this year’s series now and I’ve finally inked up the sweet witch image from the Cauldron Bubble stamp set – I wish I’d inked her up a little earlier as she was so much fun to colour 🙂
Today’s project is an oldie, but goodie, sour cream containers. These are so easy to make and are a great way to use up your DSP and for these ones I decided to use the Nature’s Poem DSP from the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue.
I used a 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP to create my containers which makes them a generous size and the right proportions to suit my little witch – which is quite a large image.
I won’t include any making directions for these as they’ve been around for so long and there are loads of tutorial out there. My only recommendations are to use a strong adhesive – such as Tear and Tape and make sure any directional patterns are going the right way before you adhere them together.
My little witches were stamped in Momento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock using the Stamparatus and coloured using Stampin’ Blends Markers. I used nearly every marker in my collection and my main goal was to colour each witch to coordinate nicely with the background DSP.
For the background I die cut some coloured starbursts using a retired die set – you could use the scalloped circles from the Layering Circles Framelits instead and layered a Whisper White circle die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits & stamped with a sentiment from Spooky Sweets.
I added a Black Foil spiderweb between these layers and scattered some die cut stars over the white circle for a little extra embellishment.
I backed each witch with a plain white one, to neaten up the back and added them to the circles with dimensionals and then adhered this entire element to the sour cream container with more dimensionals.
All of my containers were finished with 34″ (doubled) of Nature’s Twine tied around the top and I closed each one differently, as shown in the picture above.
I think my favourite might be the paper clip on the one in the middle. The one I used was from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit, I love how unobtrusive it is and how easy it is to open & close the container without destroying it. Of course, you could use any paper/binder/other clips you have is your stash for the same result, I just love mini things 🙂
I did use a paper crimper (non SU) to create the ridges on either end of my containers, this is optional, but if you did want this finish you could use your score board to achieve the same look.
Well, I’m one stamp closer to having used every stamp in the three main Halloween sets in this year’s series. I just have the witches hat, a couple of smaller images and one or two sentiments to use and I’ll have done it! This year’s offerings have been so great and I’m really pleased that nearly every image has gotten inky, I don’t usually buy so many sets, but I couldn’t choose just one and I’m so glad I’ve gotten good use out of them 🙂
