Hello all, Kia here with you today to introduce you to “Sunshine Thoughts”. This is a thank you card, the thank you has been done on the inside.
But first, the front of my card. I am using distress inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Tumbled Glass for this card.
To start I taped off the left side of my card and blended on the Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed alternating between the two colours. I then die cut the sun, clouds and hearts from the Rainbow Dreams honey cuts set.
To the sun I added squeezed lemonade. The top of the clouds was done using tumbled glass, and the hearts were done using first the squeezed lemonade, then the tumbled glass, giving the green. Green hearts represent gratitude.
On one of the clouds I stamped the sentiment using distress ink in Mustard Seed. I then stamped the “and” below where the cloud would be and attached the green hearts using Nuvo adhesive.
I arranged the pieces then attached them using foam squares. To the middle heart I added a crystal gem.
On the inside of the card I used the Bitty Buzzword stamps and dies, keeping to the colours from the front.
Thank you for joining me today. I hope you have enjoyed today’s card, Sunshine Thoughts. Following are links for the products which can be found in the Scrap’n Stamp store.
Hello everyone, Kia here today to bring you this tag I made for the Random Act of Cardness events, day 10, which does say floral! But, as sometimes happens, I had to change it up a bit. So my keyword should be Stars and Hearts I think.
I am using the Honey Bee Rainbow Dreams die set for this tag along with Worn Lipstick distress oxide ink.
There is a coordinating stamp set to this, which I am sure will be in the store soon. which has the stamps that match the set. I used the hearts from that set to stamp and give me the shape, then fussy cut.
I then added the clouds, a total of 8 with one being on each side of the 4 clouds. This gives added weight to the tag.
I sponged on the Worn Lipstick to the clouds and running up the rainbow on all sides. I placed the tag in my mini Misti and stamped the sentiments again using the worn lipstick ink, then added a few die cut stars from the set.
To finish up I made a hole with my paper piercer in the middle of the rainbow and added the pink satin ribbon.
It was fun to do this tag for a change today. Thank you for dropping by.
Hi Stamping friends and happy weekend. Brr it’s chilly out there so why not cuddle up to some hot foil?
Today I’m sharing this fun foil and die cut holiday card created with the Spellbinders Ornament Glimmer Foil Plate set. AND, I have a awesome Spellbinders SALE for you – check the bottom of this post.
This set is absolutely fabulous to create with as there is the ornament and two sets of sentiment plates to foil with and six dies to cut out the beautifully detailed poinsettia and greenery.
It’s fun and quick to create these pretty cards and everything you need is included in this one package. Check out the beautiful die cut detail on the flower and leaves in this set.
I started with a white A2 card base and used the Life Changing Brushes (On sale today for 50% off) to add my blended blue background with Distress Oxides in Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch.
I heat set the ink to dry and then added a splattering of white paint to the background for some added interest.
I use the Gemini Foil Press Machine and my Gemini Jr Die Cutting machine to add the gold foil for my ornament and sentiment and I show you below in the video just how quick and easy that is to do.
My final embellishments, a sprinkle of gold sequins across the card and three gold pearls in the center of the poinsettia.
And here’s another card created with this set, but in different colors.
In my video I use the Gemini System from Crafter’s Companion, because I had the Gemini Jr. Die Cutting Machine. Spellbinders also has a great system that works with their die cutting machines. The plates and dies from both companies along with Picket Fence Studios and My Favorite Things work in both machines and the foils from both companies do as well, so feel free to mix and match away.
I’ve shared the links below to the products I have used in today’s card, I hope you will give Hot foil a try, it’s very addictive haha. and I’ll be back on the 15th with another Hot Foil Card to share with you.
