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!

1.jpg

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.

Watercolor Galaxy and Triangle Stencil | Simon Says Stamp

Hello friends! Today I created a card using the Gansai Tambi watercolors and some products from Simon Says Stamp.

1.jpg

I taped a piece of Canson watercolor paper to a board and I used Gansai Tambi watercolors to create a galaxy background. I also used Raven ink from Brutus Monroe to blend along the edges to create a vignette. I added white watercolor paint to an acrylic block and flicked it onto my paper to make the stars.

I taped down the Triangle Blast stencil from Simon Says Stamp over the background and went over it with Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste. Once it was dry I trimmed it to 4 x 5.25 and popped it up on an A2 size card base with foam tape.

2.jpg

For the sentiment I picked out the Lucky to Know You die set from Simon Says Stamp and I cut it out of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock three times. I glued the three sentiments together using Gina K Connect glue to create a dimentional sentiment. I then glued that to the center of my card.

For the finishing touches I added a few Raindrop embellishments from Lucy’s Cards.

Brutus Monroe Subscription items blog hop

Hello everyone! I am sharing a card today for the Brutus Monroe blog hop which is featuring their subscription products for the month!

1.jpg

I first took a panel of Bristol Smooth paper and blended across is with some rainbow colors of Distress Oxide ink. I then took the stencil of the month and placed it on top and pressed embossing ink through it onto the blended panel. I embossed the stencil design with the embossing powder of the month which is the color pearl.

2.jpg

I popped up the panel onto a card base with foam tape. I added a strip of black glitterstock along the edge of the card.

4.JPG

For the sentiment I took out the stamp of the month and stamped the “hoppy spring” sentiment in black ink on white cardstock. I popped up the sentiment strips onto the card with foam tape.

To finish up the card I went over the sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter and I added some sequins.

Rainbows and Unicorns Shaker | My Favorite Things

Hello my crafty friends! Today I am sharing a fuse tool shaker card using some products from My Favorite Things.

1.jpg

I used Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink and the cloud stencil from My Favorite Things to create a cloudy background panel. I then closed that panel up into a shaker pocket with my fuse tool, adding in some sequins from Lucy’s Cards.

3.JPG

I stamped some of the images from the Rainbows and Unicorns stamp set and colored them in with Copics. I also stamped a sentiment from that set onto Cotton Candy cardstock from Simon Says Stamp and embossed it with Alabaster white embossing powder.

2.jpg

I adhered the shaker pocket to an A2 card base with my ATG gun. I then glued the sentiment strip and the rainbow image along the bottom of the card. I die cut some clouds out of vellum and placed them above the sentiment. I glued the unicorn down over the clouds and onto the card.

4.JPG

To finish up this card I added some highlights to the images with a white gel pen. I then went over all of the clouds with my Wink of Stella glitter brush.

Ink Blending with Surface Inks | Brutus Monroe Blog Hop

Hello everyone! It’s time for another Brutus Monroe blog hop and today we are showing off all the cool things you can create with Surface Inks. My card features some ink blending using the Stencil of the Month.

5.jpg

I place the stencil over a white piece of card stock and held it down with some tape. I then blended over the stencil with some Surface Inks in the colors Oz and Rouge. Mixing these colors together in some areas gives you a really pretty dark purple color.

7.jpg

Next I stamped a sentiment next to the stencil design using Raven ink. The sentiment I chose comes from the Super Sentimental stamp set.

6.jpg

I adhered the panel to an A2 size white card base using foam tape.

8.jpg

To finished up the card I added some clear sequins and I went over the stenciled design with Wink of Stella.
