Halloween Magnets by Julie Detlef
We have a really fun project to feature today, created by Julie Detlef. Julie tested the Mod Podge Dimensional Magic for her project and created these adorable refrigerator magnets just in time for Halloween with our new Vintage Pumpkin Stamp Set.
Here's what Julie had to say about the Dimensional Magic: " I had the pleasure of using Plaid’s Mod Podge Dimensional Magic and Pink Persimmon stamps to create fun pumpkin magnets. The Dimensional Magic was so fun and easy to work with. It completely forms to the item you are adhering it to. These magnets are easy to create. They do require some fussy cutting, but they are well worth the time."
Julie shares her step-by-step instructions for these little magnets:
Step 1. Stamp the pumpkins on light yellow cardstock as well as various fall colored pattern papers. Stamp the accessories such as the hats, boots, and bow ties onto grey pattern paper as well. I used the yellow cardstock as the base of the pumpkin.
Step 2. Cut out the pumpkins that were stamped on the yellow paper. Then cut out the pumpkins that were stamped on the pattern paper. Use an exacto knife to cut out the eyes nose, and brows of the pumpkins.
Step 3. Adhere the pattern paper over the light yellow cardstock pumpkin. The eyes should show through giving the pumpkin some dimension. If you are adding an accessory cut this out and attach as well.
Step 4. Put this pumpkin on a self adhesive sheet of magnet as shown. Trim around the pumpkin.
Step 5. As a final step apply the Dimensional Magic directly to the pumpkin magnet. The Magic conforms perfectly to the shape.
It works wonderfully. I love the dimension and gloss it gives to the stamped images. You'll see in the finished images how the Dimensional Magic settles in where the paper cutouts are, giving the pumpkin some character. Leave sit for a day and they are ready to play with.
Here are a look at all of the ones I created:
My daughters loved these magnets. Right away they were calling dibs on them.
Julie's overall review of the Dimensional Magic:
Some tips:If a bubble appears while you are applying the Dimensional Magic take a pin and pop it. You won’t even notice it was ever there. The Dimensional Magic is an absolutely wonderful product. I don’t have any cons to say at all about it. I will definitely be using this more in the future.
Don't forget to answer the question from above and then comment in this post! Note: This giveaway is only open to U.S. addresses. It's difficult to ship liquids overseas, so the Plaid Gift Pack is just for our U.S. friends this time.
