Spooky Spellbinders

Hello and welcome to the final day of the Spellbinders® Whimsical Woodland Blog Fest!  I decided to create two different bezel inserts with our Stampendous® stamps, one that fits our woodland theme and another that's a little spookier for Halloween.  I will use a glue dot on the back of each insert to hold it in but it will also allow me to switch them out.  For easy storage, I'll just keep a piece of acetate that I can stick them to when I'm using a different insert!  

Here’s what I used to create this bezel and the inserts:


Spooky House Perfectly Clear Stamps
Halloween Diamonds Perfectly Clear Stamps
Aged Green Embossing Enamel
Jade PEARLustre™ Embossing Powder
VersaMark™ Watermark Ink Pad
Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink Pad by Tsukineko®

Spellbinders® Die Set
Memento™ London Fog Ink Pad by Tsukineko®
Copic® Markers - W0, W1, W4, C1, C3, C4, T4, BV01, BV02, BV04, B91, B93, B95, Y11, Y13, Y32, Y35, Y38, YG11, YG13, YG17, YG93, YG95, G05, G07, E41,E42, E43, E44, E47
Miscellaneous beaded chain
Glue Dots® Adhesives - Craft Dots

Here’s what I did to create this bezel and the inserts:

Die cut two large shields and stamp images
Color images and set aside
Mix embossing enamel and embossing powder in a separate container
Rub VersaMark™ pad around one complete side of bezel
Sprinkle embossing mix on bezel over ink, shake off excess mix and heat
Repeat steps on other side of bezel
Create chain and attach bezel with a jump ring
Add a single bead in bottom hole of bezel

Here’s a list of my teammates that are playing along today:
