On the Edge...part 2

Here are some more cards using the Tim Holtz On the Edge dies. This time I used them with the Memory Box's new Halloween stamps...Let's take a look! This card uses the Ornate On the Edge die. I used both borders on the die. First, I cut the more elegant border out of Memory Box Blackbird paper. I cut out of the same paper a 2 1/4" strip and stamped the birds in flight on that piece. Then I use the ScorBug to faux stitch each side of the strip. Both of these pieces, I used the Vintage Photo Distress Ink to darken the edges of the orange paper. I cut out the other border on a strip of brown cardstock. On the card front, I stamped the Vintage Scroll with dark brown ink. Then I layered all the pieces on the card. I stamped the Blackbird in flight on cream cardstock, then stamped the spooky background over the top with brown ink. Distressed the edges and layered.
This second card I did, uses the File Tabes die. I used the borders on each edge of the card. I decided to have it open just like a file folder would open. Using more of the Memory Box decorator paper, I stamped the bird on the fence on one piece and embossed the larger piece with the new Tim Holtz Collage Texture Fades folder and then sanded it. The piece seemed too "white" after I sanded it, so I rubbed some of the Vintage Photo ink over the sanded paper. Because the inside tab was showing on the outside of the card, I decorated the inside as well. You can see that below!

There isn't a lot of samples of these On the Edge dies out online, so I hope this will help inspire you to get them out, dust them off and create, create, create!!!
