Technique Cards

More Rubber Band Background Fun!

DSCN4605

Here's another card I made using the Rubber Band Technique. This card uses a new stamp set called Grateful Bunch with a matching punch called Blossom Bunch Punch.

DSCN4610

I used the CLEAR WINK OF STELLA GLITTER BRUSH on the flowers - I adore this brush - it adds a touch of bling without any fuss!

DSCN4609

Isn't this lace stamp pretty? All the stamps used for this card are in the Grateful Bunch stamp set - love it!

Can you handle one more?

DSCN9711

Here's one more GLITTER SPLATTER technique card!!!  I found this one online - one of our demos in the South Pacific made it and I just had to give it a try. She used So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede ink for the sky background.  Then she used Mossy Meadow on the bottom to make a faux mountain side.  Isn't it gorgeous?????

DSCN9700

 

I used GOLD GLITTER on this card and a Mossy Meadow card base. The greeting is stamped with Black StazOn ink on Vellum card stock - so pretty!  Here is a link to a video that shows the basics of the sponging/masking and the GLITTER SPLATTER technique from a card I made last week:

Glitter Splatter Technique

DSCN9572

I just love the clean and crisp look of this swap card I received - and the glitter on the beautiful leaves is the BOMB!!!!  The stamp set is shown on page 88 of the big catalog - called Vintage Leaves.  The matching framelits are on page 172.  GREAT NEWS - you can bundle these items and save 15%!!!  Even BETTER NEWS - these framelits also match the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set on page 44 in the Holiday Mini Catalog and you know how much I LOVE that stamp set!!!!

The leaves were stamped with a dark ink and sponged with Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Delightful Dijon inks...then die cut using the Leaflit Dies.  It's easier to sponge on your color before you die cut.

DSCN9574

Here's a close-up of the Splatter Technique...OMG!!!  It's the bomb!

DSCN9574

Here's how you do it:

  • Put a dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on a nonporous surface - an acrylic block works great
  • Use your Aqua Painter to add a few drops of water to it and stir it up...this needs to be wet enough to splatter
  • Then take your Aqua Painter loaded with watered-down glue and tap it on your finger to get it to splatter onto your leaves
  • Sprinkle with our amazing super fine Stampin' Glitter - dump the glitter off and WAAA LAAAA!

Who wants to see a video with this technique????  I think I might be doing that one for next week - YAY!!!

Bleaching Technique

This card makes me think about fall...it's the colors that do it!  We might just be using bleach at my TECHNIQUE TUESDAY class on September 1st!!!  You're always welcome to join us - the more the merrier!!!  All you need to bring is a $5 class fee, your scissors and adhesive.  A minimum $15 order is required and if your order is over $40 the class is free!  We'll be making 3 GREAT projects and you'll be able to get your hands on some fabulous new products from the Holiday Mini Catalog - it goes LIVE on September 1st!!!

Back to the card...Using bleach on your cards is a fun and easy technique. Make sure you wear some clothes you don't care about and protect your stamping surface just in case.

Did you know that the strength of your bleach only lasts a short time after you've opened your container? Something like only 48 hours before the strength of your bleach diminishes. It will still work after that time...it just won't be as strong. 

You'll be using an Aqua Painter for this technique.  The bleach will not damage it - but rinse it out before you put it away.  You don't want bleach to be sitting in it when you store it.

One more thing I want to draw your attention to...do you see the striped banner that looks like designer paper?  That's really our corrugated cardboard paper - cool huh?  You can find it below in the products I have featured by the images of the stamp set.

Give this a try - it's fun!

Another Faux Tile Card!!!

DSCN8796

OOOO lalal!  Here's another GOR-JEEEE-OUS card using the Faux Tile technique that I featured yesterday on my FRIDAY FEATURE post!!!  Make sure you check out the video and learn how fun and easy this technique is.

This beauty features the Awesomely Artistic stamp set in a collage setting - one of my FAV's from the big catalog.  I also used the new GOLD METALLIC THREAD - you can see it wound up under the FRIEND greeting.  

Dimensions:

Mint Macaron - card base 8-1/2 x 5-1/2

Early Espresso - 3-1/4 x 5

Very Vanilla - 3-3/8 x 4-7/8 and scraps

Directions:

  • Watch the video link below to make your Faux Tile layer
  • Sponge the outside edges of the Faux Tile layer with Crumb Cake ink
  • Stamp the images in Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron ink
  • Stamp two dragon flies on scraps of Very Vanilla card stock and cut out the wings
  • Add a dot of liquid glue in the center of your wings where they attach to the body of the dragon fly - apply to card front
  • Add pearls to dragonflies
  • Stamp and die cut the FRIEND greeting with Early Espresso and Mint Macaron ink - sponge edges of die cut layer with Crumb Cake ink
  • Add a strip of SNAIL adhesive to the center back of the greeting die cut - wind some Gold Metallic Thread around three fingers - slide off and push down on the Snail
  • Add a Dimensional to each end of the die cut and adhere to your card front
  • Stamp the inside as shown below and sponge the edges with Crumb Cake ink - WAAA LAAA!
