FUN WITH EMBOSSING

Thursday, January 13th, 2022

 

Hi Everyone! It’s Susan here (a little late in the day but I made it) with a couple of cards featuring the Random Act of Cardness prompt for today. The prompt is EMBOSSING and I made two cards that are full of embossing.

When I started this card I had zero idea on what I would do. I video taped the process but don’t worry, I won’t make you sit through all my humming and hawing about what to do.

I have a filming tip for you. I film with my iphone and I learned that if my battery is low it will switch to recording in slow motion. Part way through the filming it did that and I ended up with 484 minutes of film. So, my tip is make sure your phone is fully charged when you start filming.

These were extremely fun to make. I forgot how much I like doing cards like this – a little mixed media and grungy looking.

This would be fun to do with bright colors too.

I have a bonus card for you.  I showed the embossed Sage background piece in the video but not how I put it together.   I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink and Iced Spruce Oxide ink to add some depth to the panel then cut it down with the 2nd largest die in the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched 4 Bar Rectangle Die Set. I added it to a card base with craft foam. This really helps to flatten the panel. I embossed a simple embossed sentiment using the Pinkfresh Miss Your Smile Stamp Set and a few of the embossed hearts I cut out in the video.

This one was much simpler so it came together much quicker.

Random Act of Cardness Day 12 – Stencils

Sunday, December 12th, 2021

Hi Everyone!

I hope you’re having a fun weekend. It’s Susan and I’m here to share some fun using the prompt from today’s Random Act of Cardness, That prompt is Stencils. I chose to use three different stencils – one was slimline and two were 6×6 – and make three slimline cards with them. I have video showing the process with each stencil but not how I made the cards. The video would’ve been too long if I did that too.

To watch the video please click HERE.

Below are the cards I made. If you have any questions about any of them, please leave me a comment here or on my YouTube channel and I will get back to you asap.

The first card uses the Wave to Me Stencil from Heffy Doodle. I paired it with the Polar Bear Pals from MFT,  the Full of Joy Stamp Set from C&9th, and the cloud stencil from MFT. The snowflakes are from the Avery Elle Snow Fun Stamp Set. I colored the images in with Tombow markers.

The second card uses the Heffy Doodle Broad Strokes Stencil and the circles I cut from the card above. The sentiment  and the snowflakes are from the Beautiful Baubles Add Ons from Taylored Expressions. I used some markers to draw the rest of the snowman and his hat.

The last card uses the Festive Friends from C&9th and Avery Elle’s Snow Fun for the snowflakes. I colored the image in with the same Distress Oxides I used on the panel plus the Broken China Distress Oxide. The snow is just torn card stock.

JOY, LOVE and PIECE

Thursday, November 11th, 2021

Hi Everyone! It’s Susan and I’m sharing a card using today’s Random Act of Cardness prompt of Sentiments. I chose the Concord & 9th Full of Joy Stamp Set (which is on sale at the time of this post at the Scrap’n Stamp Shop). I chose three Catherine Pooler Designs ink colors and did some ink blending on a panel then added some water splatters. When that dried I die cut the panel using the second largest die from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle 4 Bar die set.

Next I stamped the large word sentiments in the coordinating ink color for each blended area on the panel. I used my MISTI for this because I wanted to do them all at the same time. As soon as I stamped them I quickly added clear embossing powder and heat set it.

I stamped the smaller sentiments with WOW embossing ink and heat set them with white embossing powder.

I added the panel to a white card base with some craft foam.

 

This was an easy card to make and would look good in any of your favorite color combinations.
