Right at Home Stamps - Be a pop of color



For todays card I used a Crafters Companion background die. I cut it in both black and white cardstock, however, since I made my base card in black I used to black one as a stencil to reinsert the the negative images, and saved the die cut bits and pieces from the Black cardstock for another project.


I then created a Rectangle Frame by using two of the rectangles from the MFT Pierced Rectangle Stax. I used washi tape to temporarily adhere them to the cutting plate exactly where they needed to be and wouldn't move. I also die cut the orange cardstock from the stitched circle and cut the banner by hand. 





Carefully Cut across the "be a pop of" and cut off, and the same with the "in a black and white world" In Black Ink Stamp them onto the Circle and banner and use clear embossing powder to heat emboss. Using Clear really brings out the details.









Cut a piece of plain White Cardstock to fit card under frame. Stamp "color" in red ink and add red embossing powder. Heat Set. As you can see (from photo above) the Sentiment stamps are not filled in, so to make it look that way, I colored in the rest of the image with a Red pigment marker and heat embossed the inside of the word as well.



Then, to give it some shimmer I went over it with a versa marker and used the Judikins Iridescent embossing powder to Heat Set the world Color. For a little character hand drew some circles and dots all over the sheet in the Versamark and heat embossed with the Iridescent embossing powder, giving it almost a Bokeh effect.

Sunday

Making the most out of your Dies - Reinserting the Negative Images

Happy Sunday Crafters! I hope you all had a great weekend. 

I just got a new background die in from Crafters Companion that I just love (All supplies are linked below). Don't you just love the trend that is going on with using the negative images of your die cuts and re-inserting them.



I made a card base in White Cardstock the same size as the background die.



I die cut the background die in Gold Metallic and Pink Cardstock. 




Stamped Congratulations onto Vellum and Heat Embossed with Gold Embossing Powder and wrapped it around the panel and adhered to card base.

The Dandelions are cut out of a glitter Cardstock that is amazing!! It is so thick, and it does not come off! I used foam dots to adhere the Dandelion Die



I am entering my card in these challenges:








CASology: Congratulations

Altenew Layering Stamps

I recently came across the Altenew layering stamps and I can't begin to tell you how impressed I am with them! Some of them have up to 4 layers and they are all equally beautiful sets! Each set also comes with a coordinating die. Altenew also came out with their own line of inks. I haven't had the chance to use them yet, but most come in 4 shades to give you that perfect layered image, and they have the mini sets available for a steal at 12.00! They really make it easy for stampers to create exquisite cards very easily, and if you are still a little intimidated they have stamping guides that you can download, as well as online classes available! There really is no reason not to take a look! I want every single set they have available! 
For this card I used the the painted greetings sentiment set which I stamped onto Vellum in Tsukineko Brilliance Pigment Ink in Graphite Black and heat embossed with a clear embossing powder. I dry embossed a plain white piece of cardstock with an embossing folder from Lifestyle Crafts and used a corner punch to round the edges. I tucked the Vellum underneath and adhered to a black cardstock card base and rounded the bottom corners there too.  I used a stacker Rectangle Piercing Die for the panel underneath the flowers from My Favorite Things, and the paper is from the Fancy Pants Designs Country Boutique collection, which is one of my all time favorite paper collections. If it is ever retired I don't know what I will do!!


I used the Vintage Flowers stamp and die set for the flowers and various inks and pop dots to adhere them to the panel then added sequins randomly. I hope you liked my card!!

I am entering this card into Altenews June Inspiration Challenge
