I Know Right From Wrong!

Friday, March 13th, 2020

Happy Friday, my friend! It’s Deb here today, from the Design Team. I have a fun card to share with you today. It’s from the new Tim Holtz release from Creativation, called Snarky Cats. As you know, I love a good snark! The images are so fun, and the sentiments crack me up! This one in particular ‘I know right from wrong – and wrong is the fun one!’

SNARKY CATS

Although this cat image could be of the cat lying down…I just had to get him into some mischief!

I Know Right From Wrong!

As  you can see, this sassy tabby has decided that he doesn’t care for this wallpaper!

CREATE THE TORN WALLPAPER

Start with a panel of white cardstock. Mask off a triangle at the top – this will be wear the ‘wallpaper’ is being torn. Next, place the TCW Plaid Fringe stencil over the panel; hold it in place with some Purple Tape. Now, use a blending tool to apply Broken China Distress Oxide ink through the stencil.

Next, cut a triangle of white cardstock the same size as the mask you created. Stencil the front of this piece, and then tear it part way down the middle. Once finished, remove & wipe down the stencil with your Lawn Fawn shammy. Now use double sided tape to attach the ‘torn’ wallpaper  to the front.

CREATE THE IMAGES

Now, stamp the cat image from the Snarky Cats stamp set onto the front, in Tuxedo Black ink. Colour in the cat with your favourite medium – I used alcohol markers for good coverage. On a separate piece of white cardstock, stamp the table and lamp images from the MFT Cozy Companions stamp set. Colour them, and then use the coordinating dies to die cut them.  Stamp the sentiment from the Snarky Cats set onto a strip of white paper.

Now you’re ready to put it all together! Create a bright yellow card base, and then attach a light blue cardstock panel to the front. Now, pop up the front panel using foam tape. Add the lamp, table and sentiment using foam tape or squares.

I Know Right From Wrong!

To emphasize the torn paper, I curled up the corners a bit more. Silly cat!

I hope that today’s card gave you a laugh – unless maybe you’re a cat owner, and your cat has done something similar! (mine always attacked & shredded the corners of my couch). A lot of the new Tim Holtz, and other brands are now in stock, in the store, so be sure to check them out! And speaking of cats….

Stencil Us In Blog Hop

Friday, March 6th, 2020

Welcome to the Scrap & Stamp March Blog Hop- STENCIL US IN!  The girls have been working to inspire you to try something new with the stencils in your stash (and perhaps you’ll add a few to your shopping cart)!  Leave some comments along the way for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to the SNS online store.  If you’re shopping this weekend, you’ll enjoy 20% off all in stock stencils!  Sounds like a great time to try something new!

My card today features Repeat Tile Remnant (TCW2114), a 4×4 stencil by The Crafter’s Workshop.  I inked up my card with Distress Oxide Inks in Evergreen Bough and Forest Moss.  Since the stencil is so small, I had to put some thought into how I was going to use it.  I love pulling out texture pastes, but wasn’t quite ready for the mess I would make working on a larger panel!  Since I’ve been embracing GREEN lately (bring on spring!) I pulled out a couple shades of green Distress Oxide and experimented with the ‘repeat’ elements of the design.

I took some photos of the process, which I set up on my Make Art STAY-tion.  Here’s what the stenciling set up looked like…

Here’s how the stencil lined up to repeat.  I used a random blend of the two colors in varying intensities as I went up my panel (I was inking on a large tag which was precut from watercolor card stock).

Once I covered the tag, I decided to stagger the stencil to fill in some of the white space.  I kept a lighter hand for this step to add more color variety and texture.  The magnets in my STAY-tion really helped to keep the stencil in place as I went.  I think the hardest part was knowing when to stop and how much white space to leave!

I trimmed the panel to fit on a 5×7 kraft card, layering it on a dark grey card stock panel.  I cut a  Skeleton Leaf by Tim Holtz from the same paper stamped the sentiment beneath it.  It’s great to have get well cards on hand, and this lovely sentiment is from Scripty Sayings 2 by Gina K Designs.

I finished the card with some white Distress Spray Stain on the kraft card and a small bow from green crinkle ribbon.  Hope you like it!

Here’s the link lineup for our hop!  You’re off to see KIA next!  Have fun, and don’t forget to leave comments for a chance to win $50 to shop with in the SNS online store 🙂

Inky hugs,
Tara

Glitter Stripes

Friday, January 24th, 2020

Hi all… It’s Nancy E here, back to posting once in a while on the Scrap ‘n Stamp blog.  I’ve been creating, but I haven’t felt up to trying to do the posts for my Design Team duties with the team… so I’m happy I was able to get something done for them in January!  In fact, this is my second post for them this month!

My card is very clean and simple… and honestly I think it needs a little something… but I sat with it for days and had no inspiration….  so that’s the card you get today LOL!

What I want to show you with this card, is how important it is to burnish your glitter if you are using it….  I LOVE the Be Creative Tape with glitter…. and the backing of the tape is perfect for burnishing the project.

To create the stripes, I started with a strip of cardstock and then put a strip of the Be Creative tape, then another strip of cardstock and so on.  I could have done one large strip of the larger Be Creative tape, but then I was worried that my strips of glitter wouldn’t be even.  So I switched it up to use the skinniest tape instead.

This photo was taken after I covered the project with the silver glitter.  It was everywhere!  I should have used my anti-static tool on the cardstock before pulling off the backing of the tape… but I didn’t.  So instead, I used the Be Creative Glitter Magnet to remove the glitter from everything except the tape.

In this photo you can see that I started burnishing the glitter.  What this means is that you rub the glitter with your finger (or in my case, I used a piece of the backing from the tape and my bone folder)… this makes the individual pieces of glitter lay down flat, allowing the most amount of shimmer to show on the card.  If you don’t burnish, your glitter won’t look nearly as shiny and shimmery. In the above photo, the two lines of glitter at the bottom of the photo have been burnished and you can see that they are more shiny than the top two lines.
