Celebrate

Monday, March 28th, 2022

Hello all, Kia back with you today for Day 28 of our Random Act of Cardness series. Today’s card prompt is Celebrate, and that is the continued Celebration of Scrap’n Stamp’s Birthday.

For my card today I am using the Hampton Art Cupcakes, and have used Copic markers to colour, along with some distress oxide inks and a stencil.

To begin I first die cut the Paper Rose, which cuts into two pieces. The frame and the centre portion, which I am using for the stamped cupcakes.

To do the stamping I first stamped a couple of pieces using Gina K Design Magic Masking Sheets and Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black. I then stamped the three cupcakes across the bottom of my card panel.

Using the masking paper I covered the two cupcakes on the right and stamped the background cupcake on the right. I then changed the masking paper to the left cupcake bottom row and stamped the cupcake in the background left side.

I then began my colouring using Copic markers. To colour the cupcake bottoms I went from darkest to lightest colours.

On the bottom row from left to right I used: Y21, Y35, Y38, YR07; then BV01, BV02 and BV04; R20, R22, R24 and R29; and in the rear left to right B60, B32, B34, B37 and BG10 and BG10, BG13, BG49.

Moving on to the stencil work I covered the the cupcakes with the masking papers and stenciled the upper background using Tumbled Glass oxide ink. For the lower portion I used the Tumbled Glass along with Broken China.

To finish up my card attached the frame and panel to the card base using Nuvo adhesive. I then stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Fantasia, attaching the piece to the card using foam tape.

I enjoyed making this card, and I hope you have enjoyed it as well. Following are Affiliate links to the store for the products I used, at no extra cost to you.

For a Friend

Thursday, January 27th, 2022

There’s nothing to pick up your spirits like a card from a friend, in your mailbox! A bright & cheery one is even better. I think I combined these elements in these pretty cards that are perfect for a friend, at any time. And of course, I worked it in for the Scrap ‘N Stamp word prompt of ‘friends’!

DOODLE FLOWERS BACKGROUND

Everyone in the Scrap ‘N Stamp design team recently received a box of goodies to play with! I have to admit that I didn’t wait – I dove right in, so you’ll be getting a sneak peek today of some new  products that haven’t hit the shelves yet! I was actually so excited that I created 2 cards, using the same products. Just because I could! I wanted to see the pretty new embossing powders on a white, and a dark background. Here they are!

I had started with the white background, but them immediately how how gorgeous the colours would stand out on a darker background! They’re still pretty on the white, but really pop on the blue!

CARD DETAILS

Start with your panel of cardstock – light or dark. I found it best to set up the cardstock and Taylored Expressions Doodle Flowers Background stamp in my stamp platform. Next, cover the stamp with Versamark ink, and press firmly on the cardstock. Repeat if necessary. Now the fun happens! Seriously, I felt like a kid in kindergarten again, I had such fun. I used the coming soon Embossing Powder set by Hampton Arts – you’re going to love! There’s a total of 16 different embossing powders, each colour has 2 – one matte, one glitter. To start, I sprinkled the matte green around the edges of the stamping, basically to colour the stems green. Remove any excess powder, and then add  your next colour. For the flowers, I chose to use the glitter version of the colours – pink, violet, yellow and blue.  I didn’t bother to shake off the excess of each colour as I went along – this meant that the colours mixed beautifully ! When you do shake off the excess powder, you can keep the resulting rainbow, and use it on another project. Here’s a close up look at the pretty results.

This background stamp leaves a wonderful oval in the middle, perfect for a sentiment. Stamp your chosen sentiment onto vellum with Versamark ink, and then cover it with gold embossing powder. Use a heat tool to set, and then die cut with an oval die. For my sentiment, I used one of my new stamps – again by Hampton Arts, but I’m not sure of the name! It’s a wonderful sentiment set, though.

Attach your embossed card front to a bright card base, and then attach your sentiment oval. Add a few embellishments to the card front for some sparkle, and to hide your glue behind the vellum. Again – I used new self adhesive gems from Hampton Arts, and sequins from  Studio Katia.

SNEAK PEEK!

In the photo below, you can see the vials that the new embossing powders come in, plus the new gems.
