Using your sticky embossing ink pad stamp the Dandelion Bursts stamp onto your white cardstock and heat set with gold embossing powder. Mask along the border using your low tack tape.
Using your blue inks do some basic ink blending on your panel.
Remove the low tack tape. Trim your cardstock so that a .25" border will exist all along the stamping. Finished size will be 3.75" x 5.25". Adhere to your card base.
Using a shade of blue ink stamp the PMS stamp onto white cardstock. Cut into a sentiment strip and glue to the bottom of your card.

Hello everyone!! Kelly here today with an accordion book. Are you ready to get your Halloween on? I love Halloween, the ghosts, the goblins, the scary things that go bump in the night, are some of my favorite things!
To show my love for Halloween, I created an accordion book using lots of Blank Page Muse stamps.
Blank Page Muse stamps used for this project are -
The process for creating this accordion book is simple. Cardstock measured 3" tall by 12" long, fold in the center then fold each side back to get the same size pages. Spray the ink onto the printed cardstock in several Halloween colors, let dry. Stamp, color and fussy cut the images out of drawing paper, set aside.
While the cardstock is drying, look over your images and start to lay them out in vignettes to see how you want the "story" to look. Because the printed cardstock was dark on one side and light on the other, the spray inks make both sides look different.
Start gluing your images in place on the pages, then to add a few more pages, use washi tape to tape them together. Remember to use some glue stick or another adhesive under the washi tape to hold it all together.

"Blood" Red Ink Pad OR Embossing Pad and Fine Red Embossing Powder
Card base: black or white card, size 14cm x 14cm square when folded in half
Scrap black and white card
Digital patterned papers OR pre printed patterned papers: digital papers used here "Bloody Horror" @AlphabetStore Etsy
Your fave "gruesome" embellishments!!!
Tools: scissors, paper cutter, sewing machine, glue, double sided tape or glue stick
Stamp the images onto white cardstock with a nice "blood" red ink pad! Do multiple stampings so you can make several cards at once and have a "stash" handy! Fussy cut the main picture images and tear out the "spooky" wording.
Next step is to use your scraps of card to cut different size rectangles and squares. Cut your printed digital papers to just smaller than your pieces of card and adhere with double sided tape or glue stick. Cut one piece of patterned paper just smaller than your card front and adhere ready to sew. Use your sewing machine and a zigzag stitch to sew around each piece of layered card. If you want to neaten all the bits of cotton by pulling through to the back you can or do as I have done and leave the bits of cotton hanging - it adds to the "horror" LOL. I always love the look of sewing!
Arrange your sewn card pieces on the card front and adhere with tape or strong glue. Add your main image and "spooky" wording. You can add any other little embellishments to finish like some "bloody ink stained" muslin cloth!!!
Hope you have some fun making some cards like these - you can make this style of card with any themed stamps - Xmas cards would be great made like this!

To start off, using DO squeezed lemonade ink all over the background, then stamp the Background Roses with DO Wilted Violets over the yellow. Lay the stencil on top of the stamped background and blend DO worn lipstick over the stencil for the skull. then use a micron pen to outline the skull face on the card and give it highlights with a white gel pen.
Stamp the flowers on white cardstock, and color with DO inks in Wilted Violet and Worn Lipstick and Carved Pumpkin let dry then fussy cut out the flowers. While the flowers are drying, use the DO Carved Pumpkin along the edges of the card.
When the flowers are dry, gently curl the edges up around the center of the flower slightly to give them some dimension. Stack the flowers over each other until you like the arrangement and glue down.
Glue this finished panel to a black cardstock panel then adhere to a white card.
