Cool and Crisp

Friday, August 30th, 2019

Hello crafters, Kia here with you today sharing this autumn card I did for the blog.

In my neck of the woods it is a beautiful sunny day with cool breezes, so the perfect day to make this card.

Using Distress Oxide inks on my Waffle Flower Water Media Mat I did some pouncing and sponging on white cardstock using Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple, Wild Honey, Wilted Violet and Dusty Concord.

Once the piece was done I spritzed with water using my Holbein Water spritzer, which sprites out the water in different sizes of water droplets. So cool!

Allowing the panel to dry naturally, I then stamped the leaves using an acrylic block, Ranger Inks and VersaFine Clair inks. I then splattered using Nuvo Shimmering Pen in Midas Touch, which you can see in the picture below.

For my sentiment I used the cute autumn line sentence from Concord & 9th Lace Leaf Set, stamping three rows on black cardstock and heat embossing with white embossing powder.

With the help of my Make Art Stay-ion grid lines and magnets I marked off the cutting area of my panel to make room for the sentiment and applied the pieces to the black card.

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

Penny Black Harmony

Sunday, August 11th, 2019

Hi crafting friends, Sandi MacIver here and I’m honored to share a new card idea with you today created with the New – Just arrived Penny Black Harmony stamp.

Scrap 'N Stamp Penny Black Harmony

It was LOVE at first sight with this stamp and I decided to watercolor it with my Tombow Markers.

I started by black heat embossing the image into a piece of watercolor paper.

Then I colored the image with my Tombow Markers. The Tombow Marker Dual Tip Markers are water-based and create fabulous watercolor images combined with a water brush pen. Just add some color and blend with the water brush – Yep, it’s that easy!….
TIP – do a small section at a time though, so the ink doesn’t dry out, then it becomes hard to move.

The colors I chose are #379, #403, #291 From THIS SET of 9, and Chocolate Brown #969 to do the shadows and leaves.

Here’s a video showing how I like to watercolor with these fabulous markers….it’s super easy. You can view it here, or in HD over on my my YOUTUBE Channel .

The video also walks you step by step through the creation of today’s card.

Next I used two dies from the Taylored Expressions Stitched Square Stacklets to create a frame for my pretty flowers.

I white heat embossed a sentiment on a scrap of black card stock and then created a watercolor background with my Gansai Tambi watercolors #47 – brown and #57 Teal Blue.

Finally, after putting the card together, I added a few drops the NEW Nuvo Stone Drops in Gold Rush – you are so going to love this color for your vintage cards….it Rocks!

Ok, that’s it for me today. I hope you enjoyed my Penny Black Harmony Card and I have listed the products I used today below in affiliate links directly to the Scrap ‘N Stamp site.

Fun With Distress Oxides

Friday, March 1st, 2019

Hi Everyone. It’s March 1st and it’s still so cold out. I’m really

hoping it warms up soon. I spent last night in my craft room

where it’s warm playing with my distress oxide inks. I set the

camera up to record all the fun but apparently I forgot to hit

the record button – oops. But I do have lots of pics for you.

 

I pulled out my distress oxide inks and couldn’t decide which ones to

use, so… I used them all 🙂 I cut a piece of watercolor cardstock to

5 1/8 x 3 1/4″ and set about making the background. The amazing

thing about oxide inks is the colors layer on top of each other.

Normally when you layer as much ink as I did it would end up

looking like mud but with the chemical combination in oxide inks

makes it so they layer. It’s all very sciency and super cool!

To make the background, start by smooshing one color of ink onto a

craft mat. Give it a few spritz of water and start pouncing the water

color paper into the ink. Use a heat gun to dry the ink and then

repeat the steps with a new color of ink. Be sure to dry each color

before adding the next one – this is key to building the layers.

Here’s a close up – check out all those colors sitting on top of each

other – so cool!

I’m really sorry I didn’t get a video for you and hope that the

instructions make sense. If you have any questions, please leave them

for me below and I will do my best to help.

Now for the little guy blowing bubbles – isn’t he adorable. The

stamp set is called Bubble Boy from Penny Black and reminds me

of when my kids were little and spent hours blowing bubbles. I don’t

have the actual stamp but I do have the digital image so I printed

it off, colored him in with Prismacolor pencils and then fussy cut

him and the bubbles out. I added a strip of grey cardstock at the

bottom and then adhered bubble boy with some craft foam for

dimension. The sentiment is from Happy Messages by Stampendous.

I performed a little stamp surgery and cut the words apart so I

could easily stamp them in a straight line.  To finish it off I added

the thin strip of black cardstock.

 

I hope you enjoyed this card and are inspired to create. If you have

any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Happy Stampin’

and thanks so much for visiting!
