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.

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.

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.

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.
