Hi everyone, Eloise here for Craftie Cafe and today I'm making a Birthday Invitation using some Taylored Expressions products. I'll be using the Make A Wish, RSVP and Eventful stamp along with Lawn Fawn inks to create my invites today.
I started off with first using the Streamers embossing folder by Taylored Expressions to dry emboss a piece of lavender cardstock, once that was run through I die cut a piece of Neenah Solar White Cardstock with a stitched rectangle die using my Big Shot. Then I stamped my 'it's a birthday party' wording on the bottom with black ink.
Next up it was time to stamp my candles. I used five colours of Lawn Fawn ink to stamp each of the candles and flame images using some selective inking and masking to be able to stamp both the candle and flame at the same time as they are connected on the stamp. Once I stamped those out I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I adhered them onto my panel with foam tape and adhered the panel onto my embossed piece.
I then cut down another piece of white cardstock to adhere to the back of my panel. I then used my MISTI stamping tool to stamp the 'You're invited' from the Eventful stamp set and also the RSVP stamp onto the back as well. I used Celery Stick ink for the top and black ink for the message/memo area. I then adhered this piece to the back of my invitation and it was complete.
Hi friends, today I'm here to share three cards I made with the new Pretty Pink Posh and Simon Says Stamp Stamptemeber stamp set! It's called Damask Greetings and it's very different for Pretty Pink Posh, but I think it's super unique and people are gonna love it! The stamp set is now available over at Simon Says Stamp but be aware, the same with all collaboration sets for Stamptember, there is a limited number of them.
Below are three cards I made with the set!
For this first card, I used a emboss resist technique and used my MISTI to repeatedly stamp the same line of designs several time, then water-coloured over the top to create a rainbow card. I white heat embossed the 'Thank You' sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock, adhered it down to the panel and then the panel onto a card base and that was the first card complete.
For this second card, I went with a aqua to mint colour combo. I clear heat embossed some of the images in a diagonal line and then water-coloured over top to create the resist once again. I then white heat embossed the 'Thinking Of You' sentiment onto some grey cardstock and adhered it onto my card. I also used some Audrey Blue cardstock as a card base and adhered my panel on top.
For this third card, I was completely inspired by a design I saw online. I wanted the navy blue background with gold embossing. I didn't have any navy blue cardstock - so I made my own with watercolours. I gold heat embossed the images, then water-coloured over top. I wish it turned out darker, but it's fine. I then gold heat embossed my sentiment onto a small strip of navy blue cardstock and adhered it to my panel. I then used a small left over strip of the same blue cardstock, adhered it to my card base and then adhered my panel over top.
There is a video down below sharing the full details of each card.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I'll catch you all next time.
Hi friends, today I'm hopping along as a apart of the Pretty Pink Posh Product Release September blog hop. Today is the first day of a two day blog hop with a ton of inspiration using the brand new release. I hope you enjoy all of our creations!
There are four $25 gift certificates to be given away in this blog hop (two per day). So make sure you leave comments on the blog's comments to be entered and they will then be picked randomly and announced on the Pretty Pink Posh blog. Make sure you leave comments by 11:59PM PST time on the 19th September 2017 to be entered into the giveaway!
Okay, so now onto the hop. The entire list of designers participating for this day are linked below.
First up I stamped and coloured my reindeer images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I then used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I then used the Storybook 4 Dies to cut out a panel of white cardstock. I kept the insides of the die as I wanted to use them and I also made sure I cut the frame int he centre of my panel so I could use that on my card too.
I then took all the inside pieces out of frame and inked some Broken China onto the top three pieces and then a little Shabby Shutters onto the bottom two pieces, just to give them a little something extra. I also stamped the sentiment with black ink 'Jingle All The Way' on the middle rectangle piece.
I then used some red, green and gold cardstock to cut the wavy die from the Stacked Edges 1 Dies, once out of each colour. I then used the new Knit Picky paper pad for a subtle grey patterned paper and adhered that down onto a card base, then stacked the wavy pieces I die cut on top of each other into the middle of my background.
I added foam tape onto the back of my frame pieces and the inside pieces and adhered them down into the centre of my card. I added more foam adhesive to my reindeer images and also adhered those onto my scene as well and that finished up my card.
The video is linked down below.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, the next person on the hop is Kelly Latevola, make sure you continue to hop along, leave comments to be entered to win some gift certificates!
Hi everyone, today I'm here for Craftie Cafe and I have a Halloween card
to share with you all. We don’t really celebrate Halloween here in Australia,
but we thought we would inspire with some Halloween projects anyhow! For my
card today I’m going to just be using dies. I’m using the Boo Dies and Ghosties
Dies from Impression Obsession along with some of the brand new Distress Oxide
Inks and making my sentiment into a sequin shaker.
To begin my card today, I started off with creating the
sentiment. I took some watercolour paper along with the Black Soot Distress
Oxide Ink and ink blended some colour at the bottom of the paper. I then
flicked it with some water, dried it and ran it through my Big Shot Machine
with the ‘Boo’ die on top. I then used the remaining white cardstock left over
on that piece to run through with my Ghosties dies. Once everything was cut I
could assemble my shaker piece.
I cut down a piece of acetate to fit behind the ‘Boo’ word
and adhered it down into place. I then used some 3M Foam Adhesive to put around
the letters, to make individual openings. I also layered it up twice so the
sequins would fit better. Once I had sectioned off my letters I used some
Pretty Pink Posh to fill in my gaps. I used some 4mm Pansy Purple, 6mm
Amethyst, 4mm Lime Sorbet, 6mm Shamrock, 4mm Tangerine and 6mm Pumpkin. All in
coordinating Halloween colours, so it would eventually match my background.
Once I filled in all the holes, I closed it back up with another piece of
acetate over top.
Next up I could work on my background. I used the Twisted Citron, Spiced Marmalade and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inks and ink blended
them onto my background. These colours don’t really mix well together, but I
just made sure they didn’t touch too much and it worked out fine. Then I took
some water and spread the colour out a little, making it seem like it was water
coloured. I then heat set it with a heat tool and then splattered some water
over top to create the water splotch effect.
I adhered on my shaker word sentiment and adhered the
ghosts. For the ghosts I added some black cardstock behind their faces so it
would show through black and not purple and orange and then adhered them down
with some foam tape, also. I foam mounted my panel onto some light grey cardstock
and then adhered that down onto a white card base.
