Rainbow Hearts Card | Reverse Confetti Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Welcome to the February 2019 Reverse Confetti blog hop! Today I am sharing a card created with a stamp set from the January release.

This is a really quick and simple card, but it has a look that packs a real punch! Sometimes it is the simple cards that really stand out. For this card I used the Patterned Hearts stamp set. I cut a white piece of cardstock to 3 x 8 and placed it in my MISTI tool.

I chose one of the heart stamps from the set and placed it in my MISTI. I then stamped it across the panel with a bunch of different colors of ink to create a rainbow. The MISTI tool makes doing this really easy because you can keep the stamp in the same position and just move the paper.

I popped up the heart panel onto a 4 x 9 card base with foam tape. For the sentiment I stamped the “happy heart day” stamp onto some black cardstock and embossed it with a white embossing powder. I then popped the sentiment strip up onto the lower right corner of the card. To finish up the card I added a sprinkling of sequins.

Masked Watercolor Valentine | Simon's February Card Kit

Today I am sharing a card featuring Gansai Tambi watercolors and the stamp set from Simon’s February card kit.

1.jpg

I started by taping a piece of Canson watercolor paper to a board and then added more tape to mask off an area. I then painted over the area still showing with Gansai Tambi watercolors.

Once the painting was done I used a bunch of the stamps from the Love Always stamp set and stamped them across the watercolored area with Versamark ink. I embossed them with Rose Gold embossing powder from Simon Says Stamp.

2.jpg

For the sentiment I picked out the stamp which says “you are my soulmate” and I stamped it with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink right along the bottom edge of the watercolored area.

4.JPG

To finish up the card I used a white gel pen to add some dots to the watercolored strip. I then filled in the outline hearts with Wink of Stella glitter. The last thing I did was add a bunch of different sizes of clear sequins.

Dinosaur Valentine's Day Card | My Favorite Things

Today I created a really adorable valentine using the Cutieasaurus stamp set from My Favorite Things.

5.jpg

I stamped the images from the set onto a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with Gina K Amalgam ink. I colored in the images with Copic markers and cut them out using my Scan N Cut. I then cut a heart shape from another panel of Neenah using the Scan N Cut.

7.jpg

I glued the images around the heart cut out with Gina K Connect glue. I then added a piece of acetate to the back to make my shaker window. I created a background using two colors of Distress Oxide Ink (Abandoned Coral, Spun Sugar). I used foam tape to make a shaker area and filled it with Coconut Ice sequins from Lucy’s Cards. I then closed up the shaker and cut off any excess paper from the background. I took that entire panel and adhered it to an A2 card base.

For my sentiment I stamped the “You’re a Cutieasaurus” onto Simon Says Stamp Slate cardstock with Versamark ink and then embossed it with Alabaster white embossing powder. I cut a slanted edge on one side of the sentiment strip and then glued it to my card.

For the finishing touches I added a few sequins from the Simon Says Stamp Girl’s Best Friend sequin mix around the sentiment. I then went over the clouds with Wink of Stella. Finally I added some highlights to the images with a white gel pen.

Heart Filled Shaker Card | Brutus Monroe Blog Hop

Hey everyone! Today Brutus Monroe is having a blog hop all about our favorite techniques. Some of my favorite techniques involve using stencils, ink blending, and shakers so I created a card incorporating all of those things.

5.jpg

I started this card with a piece of Bristol Smooth paper. I blended lightly onto that with some Distress Oxide inks. I used the colors Wilted Violet, Abandoned Coral, and Worn Lipstick. I then took this months stencil from Brutus Monroe’s Stencil of the Month club and taped it down over that paper. I used the same colors of Distress Oxide ink over the stencil, darkening up those areas.

7.jpg

Next I used a die to cut a circle out of a panel of Neenah Solar White. I glued a piece of acetate over that cut out to make my shaker window. I added a mixture of sequins to the blended panel and popped up the shaker window over that with foam tape.

6.jpg

Next I took a piece of white glitter paper and punched a heart from it. I glued that to the middle of my shaker window. For the sentiment I stamped and embossed a stamp from the Love Bug stamp set with Alabaster embossing powder. I popped the sentiment strip up over the heart with foam tape.

8.jpg

To finish up the card I took some of the coral colored sequins from the Party Time sequin mix from Simon Says Stamp and I glued them around the sentiment.

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.
