This will add a lot of texture to the focal panel. Allow this to dry for another half an hour and adhere on some top-folding notecard.

Next, create the frame by using the Reverse Scallop Frame from the Framework Die Set and adhere some Vellum for added texture. Foam-mount this frame onto the card for more dimension.

For Day 1 of the reveals, we are showcasing the amazing Hot Foiling Products with Coordinating Die Sets.

I started by creating the background using my favorite Prima Pastel Dreams Watercolor Confections using some flat watercolor brush on some Bristol smooth white card stock. I swiped the colors back and forth until I the colors were blended together, and adhered this panel on some top-folding notecard.

Next, I created the frame for my shaker using the Frames and Flags with the Framework Die set and adhered some acetate sheet using liquid glue. I added some iridescent sequins as my shaker element and closed the shaker using foam-adhesive.

The next step was to use the Hot Foil Plates starting with the Mason Jar Plate and Spellbinder’s Hot Foil Machine. I decided to use some Opulent Card Stock with Therm-O-Web’s Ocean Blue Deco Foil. The combination of the pearlescent card stock with the foil made it really pop.

I also used the Fireflies Foil Plates with Therm-O-Web’s Gold Deco Foil to add the fireflies inside the jar. I die-cut the mason jar with the Coordinating Die and foam-mounted this on the card front.

I finished the card design by adding the black sentiment strip that I foiled using the Sentiment Hot Foil Plates and die-cutting with the coordinating die and added the gold bow using the Baby Bib Die Set. Here’s another look:

So Glad You’re My Mom with LDRS Creative

Mother’s Day is almost here and I have a beautiful card to share with you, showcasing the Cherry Blossom Layering Dies, along with the Special Occasions Stamp Set.

I started by die-cutting the leaves and flowers using the Cherry Blossom Layering Dies with different colors of scrap card stock.  I assembled the leaves and flowers using liquid glue and set it aside to let it dry for a few minutes.

The background was made by foiling the A2 Toner Frames Paper (retired) with some gold foil.  I trimmed this panel for 4 x 5 1/4 inches and adhered onto some top-folding notecard.

I stamped the sentiment from the Special Occasions Stamp Set with Raven Hybrid ink and finished the design by adding some Watercolor Enamel Dots for added texture and interest.  Here’s another look at the card:

Thank You for Being a Friend with Ink Blot Shop

I am SUPER EXCITED because today is my very first post featuring products by Ink Blot Shop. This super simple no-line coloring card showcases the Little Sweeties Stamp Set along with the Get Grounded Stamp Set.

Here’s how I made this card:

  • I needed to ground the images and so I stamped the clouds and stars also with Memento Desert Sand using the Get Grounded Stamp Set. This is one of my favorite stamp set to date.
  • the ground was stamped with some green dye ink and I added a few dots using my alcohol markers.

Sometimes, less is really MORE! This card is so simple but I am so IN-LOVE with this! You can easily mass-produce this card! Here’s another look:

For Day 2, we are showcasing the Newton’s Umbrella + Coordinating Dies with the Rainy Day Doxie + Coordinating Dies.

I started by stamping the images from Newton’s Umbrella and Rainy Day Doxie with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the images in with alcohol markers and used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out.

The background for this card was made by using a flat watercolor brush and my FAVORITE, Prima Mixed Media Pastel Dreams Watercolor Confections. Aren’t the colors to die for?! I basically just swiped the colors and used my Heat Gun to speed up the drying process. I adhered this panel on some top-folding notecard.

Next, I used the Land Border Die to die-cut two strips and foam-mounted this onto the card for added dimension. I adhered the focal image also with foam adhesive and liquid glue to secure it in the middle.

I finished my card design by stamping the sentiment from the Uplifting Wishes stamp set with some Versafine Claire Nocturne Ink.

The next project is exactly the same process, except that I added the Spring Blooms Pattern Paper onto the background, before adhering the watercolor panel. I only used the blue color from the Prima Mixed Media Pastel Dreams Watercolor Confections.

The texture was added using some “watered-down” Aged Mahogany Distress ink.

I finished the card design by adding the sentiment that was stamped on some back card stock with Versamark Ink, and heat set with the Heat Gun. I used the Banner Trio Die to die-cut the strip and adhered to the card with liquid glue.
