The Raven – Another Idea

Hello! Today I’m sharing another card using the awesome The Raven stamp set. This was another one of the cards that we made recently in my Halloween card class. It is a gatefold and features the Monster Bash Designer Series papers and the new Shimmer Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut piece of Crushed Curry cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″. Score at 3 1/4″ and 8 3/4″ on the long edge. Fold on both score lines and run bone folder along both edges.
  • Cut two pieces of DSP at 3″ x 4″ and two pieces at 2″ x 4″. Adhere to front and inner flaps of the card.
  • Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp greeting of your choice from the stamp set With Memento black ink. Stamp tree branch with black ink in corner. Adhere to center of the card.
  • Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″. When I looked at the raven and branch stamps I thought that the shimmer embossing powder would work great on these images and I love how it it looks! Run the Embossing Buddy over the cardstock and then stamp the raven and branch with Versamark. Pour the embossing powder over the stamped images, shake off excess powder and use a heat tool to emboss. Use the 5th largest Stitched Rectangle die and run through your die cutting machine.
  • Cut piece of Basic Black cardstock at 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″. Use the 6th largest Stitched Rectangle die and run through your die cutting machine. Adhere to embossed piece. Apply glue to the left side only on this piece and adhere to left front card flap.
  • Stamp “Beware” greeting with Memento black ink on scrap piece of Crushed Curry cardstock. Select one of the dies from the Ornate Frame Dies set and run through your die cutting machine. Adhere to the embossed piece.

The Raven

Today I’m sharing a card with you that I created with The Raven, my favorite Halloween stamp set in this year’s Holiday Catalog. This is a DistINKtive photo-realistic set so when stamped, the raven image is amazing! This is one of the cards we will be making in my upcoming Halloween classes.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut piece of Basic Black cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and fold in half.
  • Cut piece of Basic Black cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Emboss piece with the Woodland Embossing Folder. Highlight the tree branches by sponging Delicata Celestsial Copper Ink on with a Stamping Sponge or Sponge Dauber. You can also apply the ink by brayering the inside of the embossing folder and then running your cardstock through your embossing machine.
  • Tie piece of Copper Trim around embossed piece and attach to card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3″ x 4″. Stamp branch with the Delicata Celestial Copper ink. Stamp raven on branch with Memento Black Ink. Stamp “It’s Halloween” underneath the branch. Cut out with the largest oval in the Stitched Shapes die set. Adhere to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • For added bling I colored three rhinestones with a Sharpie Bronze Metallic marker and adhered them to the image.
  • For the inside of the card cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp feather image with Memento Black Ink in bottom corner of card. Stamp “Haunted Night” greeting with the Delicata ink.
