Wild Thank You

I like how these leaf stamps pick up enough color on their lines to make a wonderful impression on your panel. No more color is needed. Yet, if you choose to accent them more, just pick up a marker or watercolor pencil and color away. What do you think? 




Stamps:
   Wild Ferns

Paper:
   Call Me Clover A-2
   Basic Black 5-3/8 x 4-1/8
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (2)

Ink:
   Soft Sea Foam
   Mossy Meadow
   Call Me Clover

Technique:
   CAS

Accessories:
   In Good Taste Elements
   Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels
   Glue Dots
   Adhesive

First, I stamped the splotch in the center of a Basic White panel, using Soft Sea Foam ink.

I then stamped the sentiment on top of it, using Mossy Meadow ink.

Next, I stamped the largest leaf, spacing it around the Basic White panel and pointing toward the sentiment. I used Mossy Meadow.

I then stamped the mid-sized leaf between them, using Call Me Clover ink.

Next, I filled in the spaces with the thinest leaf and a bit of Soft Sea Foam ink.

I then added a couple of Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels on each side of the sentiment.

Next, I grabbed a wooden leaf from In Good Taste Elements and adhered it with a glue dot.

Lastly, I added a Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

Stencilitis

Stencils are easy to use as long as you keep them in place. I used painter's tape to keep things in place as I added ink. Thoughts? 




Stamps:
   Artistically Inked 

Paper:
   Orchid Opulence A-2
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (2)

Ink:
   Orchid Opulence
   Pacific Point
   Tranquil Tide
   Tuxedo Black Memento

Technique:
   Stencils
   Masking

Accessories:
   Stars Stencil
   Diamonds Stencil
   Bricks Stencil
   Sponge Brayer
   Painter's Tape
   Brights Enamel Shapes
   Adhesive

First, I stamped my sentiment, using Tuxedo Black Memento ink at the bottom of a Basic White panel.

I then added the Stars Stencil to the Basic White panel and used some painter's tape to mask below a third of the white panel. The painter's tape also held the stencil in place. 

Next, I applied Pacific Point ink, using a sponge brayer. It took several applications to get all of the stars inked.

I then carefully removed the tape and stencil.

Next, I added the Diamond stencil and again secured it and masked it with painter's tape. This had to be done above and below this time.

I then applied Orchid Opulence ink to the area until I had the coverage I wanted.

Next, I carefully removed the stencil, and then added the Bricks stencil.

Again, I secured the stencil with painter's tape.

Next, I applied Tranquil Tide ink, carefully making sure that I left the sentiment alone. As you can see, I was able to get fairly close to it.

I then adhered the panel onto the Orchid Opulence card front.

Lastly, I added a few Enamel Shapes around the sentiment and adhered a Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

Note: Do not forget to rinse and dry your stencils before putting them away.

Starry Sky

I learned from my mother to never throw anything away that may still be of use someday. So, when I saw a friend of mine throwing away some empty chipboard pieces, I asked for them. Today, I used a section of them to place across the top of my card. What do you think? 




Stamps:

   Basic White A-2, 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

Ink:
   Tuxedo Black Memento

First, I used Pacific Point ink to color the negative space of an On-Board Accents chipboard.

Dainty Rhinestones

I used two layers of designer series paper on my card, but if you are running low, you can easily add two strips on each side of the main panel, instead of the 4 x 5-1/2" panel that I used. I like the sturdiness that it creates when you have several layers. Thoughts? 




Stamps:
   Lovely & Sweet

Paper:
   Old Olive A-2
   Mossy Meadow 3 x 5-1/2
   Dainty Flowers DSP 2-3/4 x 5-1/2, 4 x 5-1/2
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

Ink:
   Tuxedo Black Memento

Technique:
   CAS

Accessories:
   Basic Rhinestone Jewels
   Adhesive

First, I adhered the 4 x 5-1/2" panel of Designer Series Paper onto the Old Olive card front.

I then stamped the sentiment onto the top of the Dainty Flowers DSP panel, using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

Next, I adhered this panel onto the 3 x 5-1/2" Mossy Meadow panel, and then onto the center of the card front.

Lastly, I added a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels and adhered a Basic White panel to the inside of the card.
