Wow! Day #3 on the Kompenstampers Blog Tour.
I thought that I'd show you what to do with some of those Designer Series Papers that might not be 'in season' right now. For instance, today's card is made with the DSP Cast A Spell. Quite obviously Halloween paper, this pack is full of black and orange and skulls and spider designs.
Cast A Spell made some cute Halloween cards for about 2 weeks and then we put it aside, eagerly going on to the next Holiday-Thanksgiving (whose cards and projects lasted only about 1 week and then we were on to the Christmas stuff!).
Well, excuse me, but I'm not one to waste anything. From squeezing every drop of toothpaste out of the tube to using every scrap and every piece of cardstock. Especially the packs of DSP!
I found that some of those Cast A Spell papers covered these Stampin Up chipboard pieces quite well and didn't even look too Halloweeny.
These are how the chipboard pieces arrive:
Bare and gray and so very sad. But they are very easy to cover with paper.
I used Tombow Multi adhesive to glue the Cast A Spell paper to the chipboard and let it dry for a few hours. I cut around the chipboard with my paper snips but I didn't worry about getting too close or being too precise. At first.
The best tool to get close and in between all those chipboard pieces is your Hobby Blade:
