Creating a Glitter Texture Paste | Simon Says Stamp

Hello crafty friends! Today I revisited a card design from a few weeks ago to see if I could improve on a technique that didn’t quite go as planned. I am really happy with the way things turned out this time!

I taped down a piece of Canson watercolor paper to a board and then taped down the Triangle Blast stencil on top of it. I blended over the stencil with a few different colors of Distress Oxide ink. I used the colors Seedless Preserves, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet, Tumbled Glass, and Black Soot.

Next I took transparent gloss texture paste from Ranger and mixed it together with some Unicorn Dust glitter from Simon Says Stamp to create my own glitter texture paste. I spread that over the stencil. Once it was smoothed out I removed the stencil and set the background aside to dry.

For the sentiment I picked out some stamps from the Great Things stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped them with Versamark ink on Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock and embossed them with Alabaster white embossing powder from Brutus Monroe. I cut the two smaller sentiments into strips and fussy cut the larger one. I arranged the sentiments on a strip of vellum and adhered them with Gina K Designs Connect Glue.

I wrapped the vellum strip around my background and adhered the flaps to the back. I then mounted that panel onto a piece of Fog cardstock and then popped up the whole thing onto an A2 size card base. For the finishing touches I first added some sequins and went over them with Glossy Accents. Finally I went over the different parts of the sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter.

Good Luck Card | Distress Oxide Blending and Texture Paste

Hello crafty people! Today I created a card using some products from CZ Designs and Simon Says Stamp!

I started by creating a background with some Distress Oxide ink blending. I used the colors Festive Berries, Worn Lipstick, Wild Honey, and Squeezed Lemonade. I then added some texture to the panel using Ranger Transparent Gloss Texture Paste and the Mod Stripe stencil from Simon Says Stamp.

I used the Good Luck die set from CZ Designs and cut out the word three times our of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White and glued them together to make a really dimensional piece. I then cut the shadow die out of Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock and glued the dimensional word to that. I stamped a few sentiments from the Great Things stamp with Versamark ink on black cardstock and embossed them with white embossing powder.

I mounted my textured panel onto a piece of black cardstock and then popped that whole panel up onto a card base with foam tape. I glued the die cut sentiment in the middle of the card with Gina K Designs Connect Glue. I then popped up my smaller sentiment strips above and below the die cut sentiment.

To finish up the card I filled in some of the areas around the sentiment with sequins. I used the Girl’s Best Friend sequin mix from Simon Says Stamp. I also went over the small sentiment strips with Wink of Stella glitter.

Circular Stenciled Valentine | Brutus Monroe

Hey crafty people! Today I have a circular card design using some products from Brutus Monroe.

1.jpg

I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth paper taped down to a board. I then did some Distress Oxide ink blending on it with the colors Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick. Next I placed a stencil over it and taped it down. The stencil is called Elegant Egg and it is the stencil of the month from Brutus Monroe. I used the colors Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry to blend the stencil design onto my paper.

2.jpg

Once the blending was done I used a palette knife to go over the stencil with some Glitter Glaze. I used the color Fallen Snow, which is a really sparkly clear texture paste. Once that was nice and smoothed out I carefully lifted the stencil while the glaze was still wet and set the paper aside to dry.

Once the glaze finished drying I used a large circle die to cut it. I then took a slightly larger circle die and created a circular card base. I picked out a sentiment from the Love Bug stamp set and embossed it with white on black card stock. I then fussy cut the sentiment with scissors and popped it up on the card.

To finish up the card I added a few sequins and then I went over the sentiment with Wink of Stella.

Stenciled Heart Valentine | Ink Blending and Texture Paste

Hello my friends! Today I am sharing a card that I made with a gorgeous stencil from Brutus Monroe. This stencil comes from this months Stencil of the Month club.

1.jpg

To start, I taped a piece of 6x6 Bristol Smooth paper to a board. I then taped the heart stencil down on top of that. I blended over the stencil with a few colors of Distress Oxide ink. I used the colors Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, and Squeezed Lemonade.

3.jpg

After finishing the ink blending I used a palette knife to spread some transparent texture paste over the stencil, right on top of the colors. I let that dry for a long time before moving on.

2.jpg

I picked a sentiment from Brutus Monroe’s Love Bug stamp set and stamped it onto vellum with embossing ink. I embossed it with Alabaster white embossing powder. I wrapped that sentiment around my stenciled in panel and glued the ends to the back of the panel.

4.jpg

To finish the card I first adhered the panel onto a card base. Then I added a few different sizes of clear sequins with Gina K Connect glue.

Crazy Little Think Called Love | Simon's New Release

Today I made another card using the Ornate Love stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.

1.jpg

I stamped the letters from the stamp set onto some Bristol Smooth paper with embossing ink and embossed with Alabaster white embossing powder. I then blended over each of the letters with a rainbow of Distress Oxide inks. I used my Scan N Cut to cut each of the letters out.

I taped the Mod Stripe stencil over some Neenah Solar white card stock and went over it with Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste.

2.jpg

I stamped the “crazy little thing called” sentiment on some Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock and embossed with Alabaster embossing powder. I fussy cut the sentiment out with scissors.
