I wanted to make a bunch of cards so I set up an assembly line. I cut cardstock panels to fit in my Misti Stamping Tool and stamped one bird on the left, rotated the panel upside down, reinserted the panel and then stamped a second bird on the clean half.
I stamped my outlines with Pigment Ink for a nice dark outline and let them dry overnight so there was no risk of smearing. You could also heat set to speed up the process.
I then positioned the layering stamps in two Mistis. I was careful to line up the stamps so I could then stamp quickly. I put the first layering stamp on the left in Misti 1, the second layering stamp went on the right in Misti 1 and the third layer went in Misti #2. This way I was able to stamp all the cards in assembly line fashion.
I repeated this technique with the two layering stamps for the bird’s head.
While I had my supplies out, I made a companion birthday card.
Colors used for stamping the birthday card: Peach Perfect, Orange Crush, Brown Paper Bag, Mountain Mist, Volcano Lake.
I made a sparkly custom background by mixing Volcano Lake ink with Shimmer Spray. I applied three layers to wet watercolor paper. You can’t see the shimmer in the photos but it is beautiful in person.
Hello and Welcome! This week I\’ve created an \”occasion\” card for The Watercooler Wednesday challenge where Dawn is this week\’s hostess. The occasion I\’ve chosen is Mother\’s Day.
I really enjoyed making this card. I recently ordered this pretty bouquet stamp and thought it would be perfect for my mom.
I stamped, Copic colored and die cut the main image. I wanted a white on white background so I die-cut this lovely basket weave panel. The sentiment is heat embossed but I thought it needed a little contrast around the edge so I gently put Versamark Ink around each edge, dipped in gold embossing powder and then heat set.
Technique Tuesday Bowl Bouquet stamp and die
Frantic Stamper Basket Weave Cover Die
Paper Source Sentiment
Gold and Black embossing powder for the sentiment I am entering my card in the following challenges: The Card Concept #133: Hello Spring I focused on the flowers in a container; the pink, blue and yellow color scheme and the muted white background. I think my card might be best described as \”Clean and Layered\”. The Flower Challenge: Spring/Autumn – I was making my Mother\’s Day card so I went with \”Spring\”
Happy Wednesday and thank you for stopping by. It is All About Occasions on the Watercooler Website and Kath is our hostess this week.
This is the Mother\’s Day card I made for my mother-in-law. I embossed the blooms and leaves from Create a Smile\’s In Bloom. I love these large bold flowers! Then I used distress ink (wilted violet, salty ocean, twisted citron, squeezed lemonade, carved pumpkin) on an ink blender to color each image. I buffed and let dry. Finally, I fussy cut each image. I really need to order the die cuts for this much used set.
Next, I stamped a background using SSS\’s Brush Stroke Messages. I adhered the flowers and leaves using foam tape for dimension. Last I popped on the sentiment and added SSS sequins and Pretty Pink Posh jewels.
I am very excited about the Mother\’s Day card I created for my Mom. I used the In Bloom Stamp Set from Create a Smile.
I colored the flowers with Copic Markers and then fussy cut them out. On card stock I added some paint splatters and then adhered each piece with adhesive foam squares. Next, I embossed the sentiment (Hero Arts) on a strip of black card stock and then mounted on the card. I am happy with the card and can\’t wait to share with my mother.
