Blessings

Hello! Rachel here with an insider's look at one of our sneak peeks for today! 


I've been really into stencils lately and I've been doing all sorts of techniques with them, so I decided to have a little fun with one of our newest stamp sets releasing later this week! It's called Friendship Blessings and it's absolutely gorgeous! I decided to create a fun wedding card and keep things simple with a white on white tone.

I started the card by cutting a panel that was the size of a card front (4 1/4 by 5 1/2). I taped my stencil down over the top of it and then carefully added a thin layer of Nuvo's Moonstone Glimmer Paste of the top it. I love this stuff! It's a sparkly and translucent glitter paste that looks holographic when it dries. The best part is that you can add it over any color of cardstock and the it doesn't add any other color, just the glitter! 

I set that aside to dry and then started on my image. I stamped out the flower from the set and then used my Copics to color it in. I used warm grays for the flower because I have this weird rule I use for myself - if it's a live (plant or animal) I color with warm grays and if it's inanimate (like a rock) I use cool grays. Helps me keep things straight in my head! I used yellow greens for the leaves and some yellow reds for the little stamen in the center.

Now, I did something I don't normally do and I fussy cut the image. I wanted to have it hanging over the stenciled background, so I actually got out my little scissors and did it the hard way! I then went around the edges of my image with a black marker so it looked more finished.

I then cut a small panel to go over the bottom of my card so that I could stamp my greeting. I used a stitched border die to add a little interest. I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment so that it would be straight and then adhered my floral image where I wanted it to appear on the card.

I finished the whole thing by using double-sided tape to adhere the stenciled piece on a card base (it warped a little while drying, so the tape held it down straight). I then added some foam tape to the sentiment panel and the parts of the flower that were sticking over the top. I carefully adhered that in place and it was done!


And here's a closer look at all that fun shimmer!


Thanks for joining me today!

Sweet Birthday

Hello everyone! First of all, wishing you all a very happy new year! It's Berina here today, sharing a beautiful and sweet card using the tic tac toe board for January!


I used the diagonal from the board - Die Cut, Embossing and Flowers. I decided to use the Splendid Roses for the flowers. I stamped the floral image using Memento black ink and colored the flowers with Copic markers. I used V09, V17, V15 and V12 for the flowers and G99, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for the leaves. I loved coloring these flowers. I cut the panel into 4" x 5 1/4". For the sentiment, I decided to go with the "Wishing you a sweet birthday" from the same stamp set. I gold embossed the sentiment and die cut it with a small oval. I colored the edges of the die cut with V15. I took a top folding A2 cardbase and colored the edges of the front with V15. I adhered the image panel on to the card base with glue and attached the sentiment panel with foam tape. I love how this card has turned ou…

Birthday Tea Party

Hello everyone! It's Berina here today! I'm here to inspire you to create something with our beautiful Mood board for December. I love the beautiful festive colors.


I've been wanting to use the Vintage Tea Cups stamp set the moment I got it I love the tea cup stamp. As soon as I saw this moodboard, I was fixated on using that stamp set.


I stamped the border image from the stamp set using Memento London Fog on the top left and lower right. I stamped the kettle and the cup with the same ink. I used Copic markers to color the images. I used BG15, BG13, BG11 and BG000 for the teal colored part and C7, C3, C1 and 0 for the remaining. I decided to add some grounding for the kettle and cup with the grey color. I stamped the sentiment using Hero Arts black ink.
