Product Focus ~ Dancing Foam Skeletons By Ian Rump-Smith | Craftmania

Hey Lovely Crafters.....

Halloween is just around the corner, so I can't wait to share my Halloween creation with you... created with our Product Focus - Funky Foam!!

This is an old favourite of mine, that was out when card making first began - so easy to use, yet sometimes now overlooked. Be prepared to have a little spooky fun with this card!!

Step 1

▪️I took a sheet of black card - folded and creased in half.

I mat and layered white and then black, then adhering with Woodware's Double Sided Tape.

Step 2

▪️Next, I used a white ink pad to stamp the bat using Jamie Rodgers Poisonous Potions Stamp Set from this years' Halloween Collection.

▪️I used a small stamp block to randomly stamped the bat over the black mat.

Step 3

▪️Using a sheet of white foam, I cut one of each of the 'dancing skeletons.'

You will love how nice and smooth this cuts :-)

▪️I used a black acrylic pen, and a metallic gold pen to colour in their hats.

▪️I then cut 2 flowers from the Creative Expressions Cosmos Flower die set in purple and orange foam, and used a Woodware's Ultra Fine Tip Glue Applicator to stick them together.

TOP TIP - I found tacky glue is better to use directly on the foam.

▪️I used 2 dew drops and coloured the underneath with a silver metallic pen.

I used the tacky glue to add to the centre of the flower.

▪️Again using my Cosmos Flower Die Set, I cut out 2 sets of foliage from in green foam.

▪️My sentiment from my stash, was cut from white foam, and then I used Distress Oxide Inks in Bundled Sage and Spiced Marmalade to colour and blend together.

Step 4

Finally, using my Hot Glue Gun, I adhered all my elements to my card base.

A simple card but has dimension and colours are so very vibrant.

Thanks for joining me today.... have a play with the foam and give this card a go OR hopefully you now have a little inspiration, you can try it out in your own style...

Share with us on our Facebook Group - Create With Craftmania And Jamie Rodgers. and add the hashtag #funkyfoam to your post!!

Take care all
