Sugar Sugar

Hello all,

Today, we are making a fun graphic card using the Sin City Stamps Day of the Dead Sugar Skulls stamp sheet. (Fun fact for anyone new to unmounted rubber stamp sheets: after cutting apart the stamps, use a little bit of a two way glue pen on the back of the stamp so it will stick to the acrylic blocks or Misti thus not requiring foam mounting.)

   Sin City Stamp:
     Day of the Dead Sugar Skulls

   Other supplies:
     Card stock- white, blue and black
     Foam tape
     Sentiment dies
    Colored markers
     Wink of Stella or iridescent watercolors, markers....
     Graphic background stamp
     Black detail Ink
     Acrylic block or Misti

Step 1:  Using the black ink, stamp the graphic background image onto a 5"x7" piece of cardstock.

Step 2:  Stamp the sugar skull of your choice onto a small piece of cardstock. 

Step 3:  Cut out the skull and color using your markers.  Next add some sparkle on the eyes and teeth.

Step 4:  Cut the cardstock layers in colors of your liking; determining the size by dry fitting the pieces to insure card balance.

 Step 5:  Assemble the layers of cardstock onto the background.

Step 6:  Die cut your sentiment.

 Step 7:  Use foam tape to "pop-up" the skull on card.  Glue sentiment in place.
