Shine On

Howdy!

Today over at the Alphabet challenge blog. We have a NEW challenge which is D - Dry Embossing!

I took the Online Card Classes Spring Card Camp 2 class. And one of the lessons was on how to do dry embossing with a stencil. I will admit that I had a bit of trouble doing this. But K Werner was so kind to give me a tip which worked for me. The tip was to use my die cut machine the same way I would with a die cut. But since there's no die cut to use a paper shim. So the sandwich I used was

PLEXI PLATE
STENCIL
CARDSTOCK
CARDSTOCK
PLEXI PLATE

After I embossed the cardstock piece I sponged white ink on top. And then I placed the die cut sentiment and bling. 

Paper: Bazzill Aruba
Ink: CTMH White Daisy, Ranger Perfect Medium
Accessories: ARTplorations Broken Glass, CTMH Sliver Glitter Gems, Want2Scrap Black Rhinestones, Ranger Embossing Powder Silver Tinsel, Finger Dauber

Something Good in Every Day

Howdy!

Today over at the Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog. We have a NEW Tic-Tac-Toe challenge! I chose to go for the middle column and off the middle row to the left.



For today's card I started out by die cutting and then stamping. I picked this stamp set because it only has 2 layers for each image. So I was able to create the images by using black ink for the second layer. Except for the leaves, which I did heat embossing with Gold Tinsel for the second layer. I then took the stamped and die cut floral images and laid them onto the card. Then I brought out Glad Press'n Seal and put that over 3 of the images. That made it easier to add adhesive to them. For the leaves and smaller flowers I used Liquid Glass. While the larger flowers have 3M foam tape behind them. But before attaching the flowers to the card base. I stamped the sentiment and then heat embossed with Princess Gold embossing powder. Then I placed the floral bunches on both sides and cut away the excess. And to finish the card off I masked the sentiment with Post-It note. Then splattered gold paint over the front of the card.

Stamps: CTMH Boutique Scrapbooking Day-to-Day, Altenew Peaceful Reverie
Paper: CTMH Linen
Ink: CTMH Intense Black, Peacock, Evergreen, VersaMark Dazzle Frost
Accessories: Altenew Peaceful Reverie dies, folkArt Metallic Acrylic Paint Pure Gold, Ranger Embossing Powder Princess Gold, Gold Tinsel

Inspired by Artwork

Howdy Y'all!

Mary Ellen here from Creative Time With ME! In the Online Card Class Spring Card Camp 2 that I am taking we were encouraged to create a card using die cuts or stamps in an unconventional way. But I needed a bit of inspiration to do that. Which is how I found this art piece on Amazon.



This is my interpretation of the piece.

Accessories: Bic Mark-it Ultra Fine Point Tuxedo Black, Spellbinders Nested Pennants, QuicKutz Nesting Circles

You're the Best

Howdy!

Today over at the Cardz4Guys challenge blog. We have a NEW challenge which is to use this sketch.


For this card, I had to make my own silver foil paper. I have a YouTube video to share with you on how I created this card. Specifically the silver foil paper and the embossing technique. 



I also cut out the sprocket which is on the bottom right of the image. This piece was die cut out of white cardstock. I then took the Pearlescent dark grey color and a paint brush to color this piece. For the motorcycle stamp that I used. It is a larger stamp than you see here. But I die cut it down to this size. I stamped the motorcycle with Distress Oxide. And then activated its properties with a water bottle. As for the sentiment I stamped that onto white cardstock and then cut it down to where it looks more like a label. 

Stamps: Stampendous Motorcycle Elements, CTMH Wordfetti
Paper: CTMH White Daisy, Black, aluminum foil
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Black Soot, VersaMark Dazzle Frost, StazOn Jet Black
Accessories: Pearlescent Watercolor Set, Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets, A2 Matting Basics A, Sizzix Circles Dotted, Cuttlebug Diamond Plate, Ranger Embossing Powder Clear
