Happy Movember!

Its the time of year again, when all the men round about turn into hairy apes and forego shaving for the wonderful Movember cause.


If you remember back to when we first released the Mr Fantashtic stamp plate for the charity all the lads at HQ joined in and grew some pretty strange facial hair! I have been trying to find pictures but they seem to have been lost in the ether unfortunately!


Being the 1st I decided to revisit the fabulous stamp plate and marry it up with some of the fabulous Kroma Crackle. A match made in heaven!

I started off with a 6inch square card blank and made my first layer with the fabulous Coal Black Stamping Card, I then made a smaller pieces with the White Stamping Card. I also cut the largest of the  Standard Circles Large Spellbinder Nesti with the white card.


I randomly stamped some of the tash’s from the plate all over the white card and gilded with the Sheffield Steel Megaflake. I cute the black bottom panel and stamped and gilded the Happy Birthday also with the same flake.

I used Kay’s edging technique that she regularly shows on the TV on both pieces of the white card. I then painted some scrap card with the Black Gee-Ssoo Good and swiped it all over with flitterglu, spreading a thin layer of Kroma over it and drying with a heat tool. Sealing the whole thing with Slap it on once it was dry.


I stamped and cut out the parts I wanted to be crackled in scrap paper and used that as a template to draw round on the crackled piece so they would go over the stamped image perfectly. I stamped the main image in black Versafine ink and assembled the piece with 3D Gluegel.


I hope you enjoyed my card and quick explanation of how I made it.
