Too Cool Demo Team October Showcase – Part 2

Today, I'm sharing more of the awesome projects my team has created! 

Darla - pleated paper flower

We'll start off with a pretty Perfect Plum card created by Darla Eigenschink.  The shimmery background is sprayed with Smooch Spritz, then wrapped with a Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.  At our meeting, Darla showed us how to create the pleated paper flower with the Scallop Circle Punch.  Basically, it's two punches, both scored all the way around between each scallop (so it creates pie shapes).  Make a slit on one of the score lines to the center, then fold into a semi-circle and adhere both halves together.  Need a visual?  Check out this Pleated Flower tutorial.  She added a Rhinestone Brad to the center.

Michelle - french foliage

Michelle Hoover combined the French Foliage and Seasonal Sentiments stamp sets with the Autumn Spice Specialty Paper for this beautifully sponged card. 

Darla - vintage wallpaper halloween

Darla used the Inked Impressions technique with the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder to make a spooky background for this Halloween card.  Embellishments were created with the Wicked Cool Stamp set, Decorative Label Punch, Bat Punch, and Concord Crush Poly-Stitched Ribbon.

Darla - scratch & sniff

Here's another batty card from Darla.  She embedded the Bat Punches in the background card stock with the Embedded Embossing Technique.  She also used the more bats to frame the Curly Label Punch.  That's a creative idea!  Another is creating a Scratch & Sniff on the witch's hat, from the Wicked Cool set, with a mixture of grape Kool-Aid and Clear Embossing Powder.  Here's a link to the Scratch & Sniff tutorial on Splitcoast.  Fun!

Fang-tastic - michelle hoover

Michelle shared a Halloween card that highlights lots of fun items from the Holiday Mini.  The background is embossed with the Spider Web Impressions Folder, then lightly sponged with White Craft Ink.  She used the Wicked Fun Specialty Paper along the bottom edge, then wrapped it with the Raven Lace Trim.

The trick-or-treater comes from the Fang-tastic stamp set and is colored in with markers—isn't she cute?!  Silver Glass Glitter was added around the edge with a 2-Way Glue Pen.  (She recommends using Multipurpose Glue or Crystal Effects—more glitter would stick to these, but it takes longer to dry).  Michelle finished off the medallion accent by adding black Waffle Paper ruffles. 

Love all of the projects, ladies!  Fantastic job!  Thanks for sharing!
