I am using one of my favourite stamps, Picket Fence Dandelion Wishes. There are many uses for this set, and I also very much like the sentiments.

I first stamped and heat embossed the Dandelion’s using white embossing powder from Hero Arts. I wanted to know the position of the flowers when doing my background in order to get the colour where I wanted it.

I did a smooshing technique, using a light touch in order to keep the inks on the lighter side, and I used the inks sparingly. It is easier to add more ink than to take it away. I also wanted to maintain some white space, so I am liking the way my background turned out. I also splattered some acrylic paint on it for added interest.

Once everything was dry I attached fun foam to the back of my panel using Be Creative tape and attached it to my Blue Bazzill card stock. I then stamped the sentiment using Ranger Archival Ink in Manganese Blue. For further interest I die cut the frame using my Antique Frame from Penny Black, keeping the left over card stock for use inside the card. I again stamped the sentiment with the Manganese Blue ink to cover the frame portion.

I have done a video showing my process for this card, and following the video I have provided affiliate links for the products that I have used. I hope you have enjoyed this card, and thank you for visiting us here at Scrap’n Stamp.

Kia here with this sweet image by Picket Fence Studios. For this card I decided that I would base the image on bees that are different from what we see here in Canada. I found this beautiful bee to use for my inspiration. I just used the blues in the body, and the brown wings, as I knew I would have a lot of colour up top.

I water coloured using Zig Clean Color Brushes in several colours. I have done a video which I will post sometime tomorrow, which has a list of the colours that I used. My thought process is that the bees pollinate flowers as they go about their business, so I did the head in bright colours which represent the flowers. They spread sunshine wherever they go, hence the background I did using my cloud stencil and Distress Oxides in Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade. 

I die cut the cloud panel with Penny Black’s Stitched Stackers and attached it to my card base. I then die cut two different size circles using MFT Stitched Circles using 36lb Vellum. On the smaller circle I stamped the sentiment using Ranger Archival Manganese Blue, then heat set with clear embossing powder, attaching the vellum using Vellum tape. I attached my “Bee” on foam squares, then applied Clear Wink of Stella to all the flower colours, along with the bees wings, and finished with a few gumdrops.

Here is the video for this card.

Hello crafters, Kia here with you today to share this card which is done using baby wipes. And it is a lot of fun. I did a card yesterday, called In my neighbourhood where I did this technique, however I used a paint brush and used Glossy card stock. Today I am using Photo paper and there is a difference between the two papers. The glossy is more muted than the Photo paper, but I still like both.

First, I die cut my panel using Penny Black’s Stitched Stackers die. I then did some smooshing, laying down a colour, spritzing with water and smooshing the paper into the puddle, then drying. It is important to dry between each layer of colour. I started with the lightest colours, being Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron, Picked Raspberry and just a tad of Broken China.

Once the layers were dry, I then stamped my flower using Wilted Violet Distress Oxide. I first stamped dry, then the second stamp I spritzed with water before stamping. I added the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To finish I attached my panel to fun foam using Scor-pal (Be Creative) tape and attached it to a pink card base.

I have done a video on this card which you can find here

I also did my inside using the same technique, but stamping using the Wilted Violet to bring the purple inside the card.

I hope you have enjoyed this card and wish to thank you for visiting today.
