Poe Poetry: Day 19 of 31

Greetings, my ghoulish friends! Today is Day 19 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Many of us Halloween fanatics are also big fans of Edgar Allan Poe. For my project today, I am using a Stampendous stamp called Poe Poetry, so many of you will probably really dig it. Below is my full tutorial on how to create this card.

R294: Poe Poetry Stamp
EP215: Hematite Embossing Powder

Imagine: VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black, irRESISTable Spray in Love Letter and Wedding Dress, VersaMark Ink
Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry Glue
Red & Kraft Colored Cardstock

1. Stamp Poe Poetry with VersaFine ink on to Kraft colored cardstock.

2. Crop the image.

3. Unscrew the spritzer of the Love Letter irRESISTable bottle and use the straw to apply some of the liquid across the top of the image. Allow it to drip down a little and let dry.

4. Open the Wedding Dress irRESISTable in the same way and use the straw to apply dots of white all over the card. Be sure to shake the bottle first.

5. Create the card base while the white is drying. Make it out of red cardstock cut to 5 1/2" x 8."

6. Apply VersaMark ink to2 adjoining sides of the card base, sprinkle with Hematite Embossig Powder and heat set.

7. repeat Step 6 on the other 2 sides.

8. Glue the stamped layer to the card base with Zip Dry glue.

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.

The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
