Here is the last Shimmery Resist sample I had made for the Cinncinati regional. Shannon suggested I show something other then Christmas projects, so I pulled out the skull image (LOVE THAT ONE) from the Stampin’ Up! set From the Crypt.


Since I dont’ have the sample anymore, I won’t be able to give you the exact measurements. Sorry. I stamped the skull in Black Craft ink on Cast-a-Spell Designer Paper and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Next I rubbed Shimmery Paint all over. It was adhered to a slightly bigger piece of Whisper White. The edges were distressed and paper pierced.


The box was cut with the Big Shot die Fancy Favor Box out of Cast-a-Spell Designer Paper.  The Black Grosgrain Ribbon handle was attached through two Jumbo Eyelets. The bat from From the Crypt was stamped in Black Stazon on Whisper White cardstock, cut out and attached to the box with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the set Teeny, Tiny Wishes. It was stamped in Black Craft ink, embossed with clear embossing powder and sponged over with Shimmery paint. Then the greeting was punched out with the Window Word punch and layered on a Basic Black Modern Label Punch-out.
