It’s a Mice Time To Celebrate

Wednesday, March 10th, 2021

Hi Everyone! It’s Susan here today sharing a card for the Random Acts of Cardness and one of my favorite techniques. Ink Smooshing. It’s so much fun!

Here’s a look at the finished card

Let’s start at the beginning.

  1. smoosh some ink onto a glass mat, plastic sheet or a stamping block then give it a few sprays of water.
  2. take your paper (I used watercolor paper) and dab into the puddle of ink.

         

3. Be sure to dry between layers with a heat tool (this pic is after I repeated steps 1-3 with 3 colors)

I used 6 colors of ink on this panel so that means I repeated steps 1-3 six times. After I was done with the ink smooshing I made some more puddles of ink and using a small paint brush I splattered on some ink. I did this with 3 of the 6 ink colors.

I used Distress Oxide inks for this card so that tends to give a muted look. If you want to ‘brighten’ it up a bit take a little Distress Glaze and rub it all over the panel. Just use your finger to rub it on and this gives the ink a polished look. It’s hard to see in the pic but in real life there’s a definite difference.

For the rest of the card I stamped a mouse from MFT’s It’s a Mice Time to Celebrate stamp set, colored it in with my Prismacolor Pencils then fussy cut it out. There are coordinating dies for this set but I don’t have them and I don’t mind fussy cutting so I just cut it out.

The sentiments are from the same set and are embossed with WOW White embossing powder onto black card stock -probably my favorite way to do a sentiment – then adhered directly to the panel.

I attached the mouse with a wobbler for some fun – after all it is a party!

If you try this technique be sure to share it in the Facebook Challenge page. We’d love to see it.

 

Happy Stampin’

MISSING YOU

Saturday, February 27th, 2021
Hello and welcome to another post featuring Random Acts of Cardness.  It’s Susan here with todays prompt is Feather. I was thinking about doing a bird but when I was looking through my stash I saw this Zen Leaf 2  from Lavinia and an idea popped into my head straight away. Now I know what you’re thinking – the prompt is feather and I used a leaf but doesn’t it look like a feather to you? It does to me so I went with it.
I used the stamp to cover the front of a white card base, layered on a piece of black cardstock on an angle.
Next I cut a piece of white card stock using the Stitched Rectangle Dies, stamped the feather on an angle then stamped the sentiment from Fran’s Happy Messages by Stampendous.
To add a bit of color I used my Prismacolor pencils. There’s something about blues and greens that are very zen to me so they were the perfect choice for this Zen (Leaf) Feather.
How will you be inspired by this prompt? Be sure to share your creation with us over on the Facebook Scrap’n Stamp Challenge Page. I can’t wait to see.
Have fun!

IF I KNOW ONE THING…

Saturday, June 27th, 2020

…it’s that My Favorite Things products are among my favorites to play with.

Always have been and always will be.

Hi Everyone! It’s Susan with today’s Random Act of Cardness prompt of  My Favorite Things.

I chose two of my favorite sets to play with; Safari Party and Sassy Pants Best Friends. Those Safari Party animals are so cute and the Sassy sentiments make me smile.

 

I stacked the animals on top of each because that’s reality lol and colored them in with Prismacolor Pencils. I added some simple shading  on the bottom to ground the images. I cut that panel to 3 x 4 3/4″ and using craft foam I layered it onto a panel that was cut to 4 x 5 1/4″ after I stamped the sentiment along the side using Versafine Claire Nocturne ink.

I layered it all onto a grey card base and called it done.

Now our challenge to you is to use your favorite MFT stamps & dies on a card and if MFT’s not your thing then use any of your favorite products. And be sure to share it with us on the Scrap’n Stamp Facebook Challenge Page.
