Newton Cleans Up Stamp Set & Coordinating Dies

As soon as I saw this stamp set, I knew I wanted to create a colorful background and layer the cascading stars with some Moonstone Glimmer paste.

NNDNewtonCleansUp1A

How I made it:

  • stamp the images on Neenah solar white card stock and color the images in with alcohol markers.  Die-cut the images using the coordinating die.
  • stamp (and color) the presents images from the Newton Christmas Cuddles stamp set and the balloons from the Fabulous Frenchies stamp set and die-cut them using the coordinating dies.
  • on a piece of some A2 size Bristol smooth white card stock, use some distress oxide inks and mini ink blending tools to color the background.  cut about 1/4 inch off this piece.

  • use the distress sprayer to spritz some water on the colored background and pick it up with some dry paper towel.
  • use the cascading stars stencil and some Moonstone glimmer paste to add some glittery stars on the background.  Set this aside to dry for about half an hour.
  • die-cut a piece of some black card stock and use the smallest die from the Framework die set.
  • stamp and sentiment with versamark-ink, sprinkle it with some white embossing powder and heat-set using the heating tool.
  • adhere the colored background on an A2 size card base.  Adhere strips of black and white patterned paper on the side with some black strip of card stock.
  • adhere the rest of the images on the card with some liquid glue and foam adhesive.
  • finish the design by adding glossy accents to the balloons and white dots using some white gel pen.

Friendship Card and a Farewell to CAS-ual Fridays

Hello CAS-ual Fridays fans!  Maria here on the blog with you today.  I am so sad to say that this is going to be my last post as a member of the Ink squad.  Being on this team has made me a better designer and having Michele Gross as our lady boss, wow! I can’t even stop the tears as I’m writing this.  Michele is the best ever and the girls on this team are simply sweet and amazing!  I could never ask for a better team!  Sadly, my schedule has gone a bit awry but I will continue to promote CAS-ual Fridays and if you follow my blog or instagram, you will still see these projects.

For my project today, I am showcasing my favorite dies from the March release.  I used the Tin Roof Cover Fri-Die and the Sweet Friend Fri-Dies.

 

Here’s my card:

 

How I made the card:

  • die-cut the Tin Roof Cover Fri-Die with some 110 lb smooth white card stock.  also die-cut a frame die from my stash with to layer this together.
  • adhere acetate sheet with using strong adhesive to create the window for the shaker.
  • add some foam adhesive and add sequin mix for the shaker element.
  • close the shaker card by adding patterned paper with strong adhesive.
  • die-cut the “Hello” from the Sweet Friend Fri-dies on some black card stock.
  • run this piece through a sticker maker and adhere the same on the foreground.
  • stamp the sentiment from the Supercalifragilistic stamp set on some vellum with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat emboss using clear embossing powder.  Adhere this piece around the card and secure with tape on the back.
  • adhere this shaker piece on an A2 side folding card base.
Here’s a closer look:

To finish my design, I used my Sakura white gel pen to add some lines and dots to the “Hello” sentiment.
