31 Days of Halloween - Day 19

Hello folks, and it’s day 19 of the Smeared and Smudged 31 days of Halloween Blog Hop.  All you have to do to take part is to hop through each of the Wicked Blogs that are participating and leave a comment on each project.  All Horrifying Hoppers will receive a Survival Button at the end of the month to proudly post on their blog.

If you’re following the blog hop in order, you’ve arrived here from Teresa’s blog.    If you’ve arrived from elsewhere and you’d like to work your way through all the participating blogs, the blog roll is in the sidebar – just start at the beginning or wherever suits you best.

Here's today's card, which is held closed with a simple wrap.


Remove the band to reveal the window (the stamp is from a set by Kanban).
Open the flaps and...

...reveal the magic (and more stamping, - stamps from Kanban and The Artistic Stamper).  The picture is from G45's Steampunk Spells collection - my very favourite ever.  I have one set to use, one to cherish, and another just in case. You can get an idea of the way it works here.



I learned how to make this kind of card from this YouTube video.


Hope you are enjoying the hop.  Don't forget that Scavenger Items will be hidden randomly on the Wicked Blogs, and are not guaranteed to be available every day. You will have to visit blogs to find them. If you find one, you will email and let us know exactly where it was and your name will go into that scavenger item's drawing. Each person who finds the "hidden" picture will get one entry. The drawing for each scavenger prize will be the day after it was posted and winners will be chosen by random number based on who emailed. Thank you for visiting.  Now, if you’re working your way through the roll, it’s on to Renee.  Bye now!

Another amazing card and technique.
This one is so much fun!
I want to use this technique for a huge eyeball, with the double lids opening to reveal it.
