Here is what September's SOTM looks like:
Thriller is perfect for all your Halloween projects and I figured lots of people would be using it for just that. I'm not a huge fan of skulls and cross-bones or vampires and such, and I also figured some of you wouldn't be either. Keeping that in mind, I challenged myself to use this set in a non-Halloween way. I don't often "think outside the box" when I'm using stamp sets, so it was very good for me to do so this time.
Here are the cards I made.
This first card is a little one, 2 1/2 x 3. I used the new purple ink, Gypsy, to stamp the skull image and the sentiment (from Say it in Style). I brayered the top flower in that colour as well. The stitches (from Togetherness) and the second flower are done in Black.
This 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 card was done with Lagoon and Black. I stamped this image on a scrap piece and then created two masks for the inside and outside of the frame. I stamped flowers from Treasure Life in first and second generation inside the frame and then stamped the frame. I edged the image piece with the direct-to-paper technique in Lagoon.
This last card is a 3 x 6. I used Sunset to stamp the images and sponged Black on the edges. Then, to add a little flair, I cut the tops of the middle flourish with my craft knife and lifted them off the paper a bit. This next photo shows that detail.
