~Choose the front of your Box.  Glue the Tree to the center front wrapping the ground around to the left side.  Cut it off at the right side, depending on how you cut the ground on your trees.
~Hold up your second tree so it shows about half the branches sticking out from the side.  Add Glue to the half of the tree that will be glued to the Baker’s Box.  Attach making sure the Glue is all on the box and the unglued branches are sticking out the side.  Now attach and trim your ground around the bottom of the box.

5.  Ghost.  Cut your Whisper White card stock into a triangle with the bottom edge being 2-1/2″ wide and the top point being over 3″ tall.  Stick the top point into a circle punch from the outside so only the point gets punched off to form the rounded top of the Ghost.  Run Fast Fuse down the outside edges and cover with the Satin Ribbon.  Run Fast Fuse over the center parts and cover with two more strips of Satin Ribbon.  Trim the rounded top and flat bottom with your scissors.  Add two 1/4″ Basic Black punched circles for eyes.  Add Dimensionals to the back of your Ghost.

Stamping on Glimmer Paper Video

I wanted to make a Purple Glimmer Paper Witch’s hat and so I tried stamping on Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  I LOVE the results!  I hope you try this and enjoy the results too.  Please leave your comments and let me know how you like this technique.

This video is 4 minutes and 56 seconds.

SUPPLIES:
Bundle:  Howl-O-Ween Treat  Wood #140839, Clear #140840  (Includes the Howl-O-Ween Treat stamp set and the Boo to You Framelits)
Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes Wood #
Ink:  Black StazOn
Blackberry Bliss
Elegant Eggplant Marker
Card Stock:  Very Vanilla
Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper #139584
Black Glimmer Paper #139605

Big Shot:  Boo to You Framelits  (See Bundle above)
Punch:  Word Window #
Other:  Spider Web Doilies #139622
Fine Tip Glue Pen #138309

Dimensionals

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Very Vanilla card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score & fold at 4-1/4″.
~Cut your Happy Hauntings spiderweb paper at 1-3/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Attach to card base about 1/8″ above the bottom edge of your card front.
~Cut your Black Glimmer Paper at 1/2″ x 6″.
2.  Cut your Spider Web Doily in half after deciding which part you want as the center.  I chose the part with the circle to be at the center.  Use the Fine Tip Glue Pen on the thicker parts of the doily and attach it close to the top of your card base.  Stamp your Spiders in Black StazOn ink remembering to press down firmly.  Now attach your Black Glimmer Paper strip to cover the gap between the Spider Web Doily and the Spider Web paper.
3.  Stamp, color, and Heat Set your Witch Hat as shown in the video.  Cut out with your Big Shot and the Witch Hat Framelit.  Attach to your card with Dimensionals.
4.  Stamp Happy Halloween in Black StazOn ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  Punch out with the Word Window Punch.  Attach to card front with Dimensionals.
5.  Now you have a cute Halloween card to give someone special.

Happy Stamping!
