Tuesday with Tara {take 264} Fall Fairy Wings

Tuesday, September 8th, 2020

Happy Tuesday!   I hope you had a fabulous long weekend celebrating the unofficial end of summer and beginning of fall- and hopefully you got to take in our Live, Love, Lavinia Blog Hop!  (If you haven’t hopped yet, there’s still plenty of time to hop & comment for a chance to win!).

I had a lot of fun with the three dancing fairies in my blog hop project, but I also pictured them dancing on some falling leaves so I decided to pair them with these realistic leaves from the Tim Holtz Natures Wonders stamp set.  I stamped them on ivory card stock in a variety of Distress Oxide colors, positioning the fairies around them.  I’d never tried combining them before, but I added some shading to the leaves with Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks.  With the addition of a water brush it ended up to be a really fun combo that I will use again!

Once I finished coloring the leaves I die cut the panel with a deckle edge die and inked the edges with Speckled Egg Distress Ink. I then splattered some Distress Spray Stain the same color over the panel, followed by a bit of metallic spray for extra shimmer.

I finished off the image with a bit of Nuvo shimmer pen on the fairy wings and a bit on the leaves. I stamped a sentiment (from a fab new set by MFT) on a scrap of inked paper leftover from my poinsettia card- I love how it contrasts with the leaves and pulls out the blues in the background.  Lastly I layered it all onto an ivory card base.

The finished card is a fun design that is simple enough and lays flat for easy mailing!  There are hints of shimmer all over.

I’m looking forward to some more autumn creations and can’t wait to see yours!  Be sure to join us in the SNS Challenge group on Facebook and share your creations!  Today’s challenge word is Wings!

Inky hugs,

Tara

Witch Way is the Candy ?

Witch Way is the Candy ?

Hello Everyone. My new project for  ScrapnStamp.ca/ blog  is a Hallowe’en Card.  My Favorite Things Witch Way is the Candy ?  Stamp Set and co-ordinating dies  are the stars of todays entry.

Witch Way is the Candy  ? Stamp Set and co-ordinating dies are an  older set   that’s been released  last year after a hiatus.  It is a set that should be in everyone’s stash.

Ink to Paper:

Memories Black Dye Ink Pad was used to  stamp the two pumpkins onto masking paper and  then all stamps required  in the desired placement onto watercolour paper  to build a scene using  MISTI to ensure a crisp image.

Masking works by stamping the images to be placed in the forefront first and working back from there. This meant the smallest pumpkin stamp had to be stamped first in the bottom left to centre  on the  watercolour panel.

After both pumpkins were stamped and masks placed onto both, the cat was stamped to look as though it was sitting on the smaller pumpkin.  The masks were removed. The crescent  moon was stamped next, the witch   fit nicely in the right bottom edge ,  with the bat stamped out of the scene.

Watercolour with Scribble Sticks:

Dina Wakley’s Scribble sticks set 1 and set 2 were used to  watercolour  this card. Elephant, Sedona, Blushing, Cheddar, Evergreen, Marine, Olive, white, black, Umber, Lime, Tangerine, Magenta and  Night Scribble Sticks were used. Daniel Smith Watercolor Stick ( Cadmium Yellow Pale for the moon, Sodalite Genuine and Lunar Black  was added to darken the sides and bottom.

Die Cuts Using Gemini:

Hallowe’en themed pattern paper  – from my stash –  was cut to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 ” ( 10.8 x 14 cm). Lawn Fawn’s Reverse Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Windows largest die was used to cut a window from the panel. The bat was cut and trimmed.  A tree branch die – from my stash- was cut with  black card stock.

Card Assembly:

Black  3 D Foam Squares were cut into four pieces  and placed onto the back of the tree branch. The branch was placed over the watercolour card  front panel ( from the top right hand corner to just above the bottom of the moon).   The bat was adhered to the branch was  an acetate braided dimensional strip and attached on both ends – to the bat and the branch – with micro glue dots. The Hallowe’en themed window was popped up with Ranger Foam Strips and  placed over the front card panel. The branch was trimmed  from the back of the panel.

A top fold portrait card  base was cut  11-1/2 x 4-1/4 ” (29.1 x 10.8 cm) and   scored at 5-1/2 ” (14 cm). Be Creative  was  applied to the card front.  Black Fun Foam was cut to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 ” ( 10.8 x 14 cm) and placed over the card front.  Be Creative Tape was applied to the top of the  fun foam.  Finally to complete  the card front, Be Creative Tape was applied in the opposite direction onto the back of the watercolour panel. The release backing was removed from the watercolour paper panel and placed onto the fun foam, burnishing the panel as requires.

Finishing the Card:

White Card Stock  was  trimmed to 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 ” (10.5 x 13.2 cm). A  4-1/8 x 1/2″ ( 10.5 x 1.9 cm)  strip of Hallowe’en pattern paper from the front was  attached to the bottom of the inside card panel.Memories Black Dye Ink Pad  and a sentiment stamp”Hallowe’en Greetings”  from  Witch Way is the Candy ? Stamp Set was  centred vertically but not horizontally. Three small bats – from my stash- were stamped above the sentiment. Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive adhered the card inside panel to the inside card base. Glossy Accents were added to the cat and bats eyes. Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss to the bats wings and a white Uni-Ball Signo Gel Pen to the bats teeth.

Witch Way is the Candy Hallowe’en  card is now complete. Until next time. xo Karen
