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.

Daisies on Kraft Cardstock

Wednesday, December 29th, 2021

Hi Everyone! It’s Susan and today I’m sharing a card for the Random Act of Cardness prompt which is Kraft. I used the beautiful floral image from the Floral Bunch Stamp Set from Pinkfresh Studios. I used my MISTI to stamp the image and left the stamp in place so I could stamp it again after I colored it. My original plan was to only use my Prismacolor pencils but I really wanted the flowers to pop off the page so I painted the flowers with a white POSCA Paint Pen and used my pencil crayons for the rest of the image.

I used the large die from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut the panel and adhered it to a white card base. The sentiment is from the same Floral Bunch Stamp Set and embossed white onto black card stock and added to the card with craft foam.

A Whittle Winter Snowman

Friday, December 17th, 2021

Happy Friday! One week today… Christmas Eve! Are you ready? I’ve got a card for today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt, WINTER – and apart from a little drying time, it was quick and easy to make, perfect for this time of year.

 

 

This card also gave me a chance to use three new-to-me supplies – the Photoplay falling snow coverplate for my background, my whittle friendly snowman die and distress mica spray for the scarf and hat band. For my winter sky, I tried a technique Jennifer McGuire recently showcased. On Yupo paper, I added a generous amount of blender solution before adding blue alcohol pearl ink, and then smooshed a second sheet of Yupo paper on top. This definitely solves my tendency to add too much ink! I like the wind-blown look the smooshing added, as well.

For my whittle snowman (who is obviously not so “whittle’), I cut his head and body out of white cardstock, his hat and eyes from a scrap of black and his nose from an orange scrap. The hat band and scarf are from a scrap of white that I sprayed with holly branch mica spray – I’m impressed with how evenly it coats the paper and leaves a velvety shimmer. The sentiment is from a Lawn Fawn tag set – I chose it as it fit perfectly on a circle the same size as my snowman’s head. 😀   It’s popped up on a circle of fun foam for a little dimension.

 

 

If you make a wintry card, I hope you’ll link it up for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to the store! Have a great weekend.
