Hello, it’s Kari here. I’m excited to be sharing a project from the new September kit using the Sugar Skull die included! I’ve got two cards and a video for you today. This new kit is phenomenal and if you haven’t already purchased a subscription, head on over to the shop to get it before it’s gone!

SUGAR SKULL DIE 2 WAYS!

I couldn’t wait to jump in and use that NEW DIE that came in the Kit. This is a 2-piece die that you can use on its own, or use the outline to cut out the sugar skull STAMP, too!

To see the process of how these cards came together, Watch the short video below or in HD on YouTube:

SUGAR SKULL DIE CARD 1:

SUGAR SKULL DIE 2 WAYS!

For this first card, I die cut the sugar skull out of black cardstock and LEFT ALL THE PIECES in the cardstock. Then, I colored it up using Gelly Roll pens. These look great on dark cardstock and certainly work with this theme!

I popped up the nose and the top swirl pieces with foam tape to give it some more dimension. The roses and leaves are die cut from some products in my stash (I will link them below if you are interested) and they look great with these skulls!

The background is made with white cardstock and some ink blending with Distress Oxides. Doesn’t that really make it pop!? I added the flowers with liquid adhesives and foam tape so there would be multiple layers.

The second card is quite a bit simpler. I die cut in black cardstock once again, but this time I popped out all the pieces (except the teeth) and used some metallic pearl paper from the August Hedgehog Hollow kit. I added flowers in multiple colors and this card is done!

After I glued it all down, I decided that I WISH I WOULD HAVE POPPED out those teeth!! So I painted them with metallic paint. Since this is a regular black cardstock, I only used just the smallest amount of water. There, that looks better don’t you think?
