I was thrilled when the new Day Of The Dead stamp set was introduced at The Grand Event in Pomona last weekend. Here’s a photo of the actual set and as you can see we now offer indexed stamps. This stamp set is perfect for my upcoming ATC trades and cards in a Halloween or Spooky theme.
I am part of a group where we pick a new ATC every 15 days and the latest theme was Red, Orange and Yellow. So I decided I would use the sugar skulls in my new stamp set to fit the theme. I got to stamping and this is what I came up with. First I stamped out the sugar skulls on various cardstock. Second I fussy cut out the skulls so that I could have various layers. Once I layered appropriately I used Journey Glaze and Glitter to finish them off.
I decided to cut out a background layered shape using my Spellbinders dies. I also used a Spellbinders Embossabilities folder to get dimension in the black mat layer. Here is the final product. Hope you all like them and if you have any questions, feel free to comment below.
