Hello there, Christine here with a slimline card featuring the new Creepy Cocktails die set and Trick or Drink stamp set. I’ve wanted to use the Creepy Cocktail die set since it came out, but needed to figure out how I wanted to showcase this super fun die set. I recently purchased the new Tim Holtz Holiday mica sprays and wow are they fun to use! We will be getting the Winter/Christmas version in the Trinity Shop soon and unfortunately we sold out of the Halloween version (but they are available elsewhere!)
So first I made a background panel using only the Frosted Juniper mica spray from the Winter/Christmas set- I haven’t used distress sprays much at all, so I would have approached this differently than I did, but I was learning along the way. I brushed water all over watercolor paper (I used distress watercolor paper) and then just sprayed the Froster Juniper mica spray all over and used a brush for any areas that didn’t get color- it was pretty saturated!
I let that dry for a while and then approached the drinks differently: I sprayed the ink onto a surface (I had some areas that were then diluted with water and some that weren’t) and then I smushed the inside cut outs from the Creepy Cocktails (again I die cut distress watercolor paper) into the ink, let them dry and then smushed them again (I repeated this cycle several times). It creates a much more interesting background then how I had made the slimline panel.
I then cut the remainder of the creepy cocktails with the Creepy Cocktails die set out of acetate, lighter purple or orange cardstock and foam to create mini shakers (but without the shaker bits). Once the inside pieces of the cocktails had dried, I put glitter paste on it to make it really sparkle and then let that dry.
I added some Trinity Stamps embellishment eyeballs, I’ve Got My Eye On You and Dot Your Eyes– both are available in the Trinity Stamp store, before adhering everything together to make the final cocktail drinks. I stamped a sentiment from the Trick or Drink stamp set with Ink on 3 black ink onto a banner cut with the banner die from the Slimline Scalloped Card Panels die set. I added some older spider embellishments, but the bats from the Pumpkin Party embellishment mix would work just as well (I didn’t have this).
Thank you so much for stopping by today- wishing you a wonderful day!
