Stencil Sunday | Gelli Printing ATC and CAS Card

Hello everyone… Happy Sunday! Today, I am sharing my favorite ways of using stencils is with Gelli Printing Plate on ATC and CAS card.

These projects are for Sunday Stencil feature post at STAMPlorations Blog.

My first project is this CAS card:

On this CAS card background, I used the Make Marks 1 ARTplorations Stencil. I added the light blue acrylic paint on the cardstock with make up sponge lightly. After the paint dried, I cut it with the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangles Nesting Dies and I added it on a white card base with EZ Runner Gran.

I used the Make Marks 4 ARTplorations Stencil and pulled couple monoprints using Gelli Printing Plate and acrylic paints. After that, I cut it out with Stitched Tags Nesting Dies. I added one of the Coffee Heaven Clear Stickers on it. I added some DL. Art Mocha crinkle ribbon on it and added it on the card with 3D foam adhesive.

I sprayed some Cocoa Marabu Art Spray on a heavyweight white cardstock, cut out the cup from Tag O’Coffee Dies, and added on the card with 3D foam tape.

This second project is a set of 3 Artist Trading Cards. Making these ATC cards are simple and quick with Make Marks stencilsCoffee Heavens clear stickersATC Tag Builder Dies, acrylic paints, gelatos, gelli printing plate, and make up sponge.

On this first ATC background, I used the Make Marks 2 ARTplorations Stencil and Make Marks 6 ARTplorations Stencil.

On this second ATC background, I used the Make Marks 4 ARTplorations Stencil and Make Marks 5 ARTplorations Stencil.

And on this third ATC background, I used the Make Marks 1 ARTplorations Stencil and Make Marks 3 ARTplorations Stencil.

Anything Goes With Dies | Grateful Heart

Hello everyone… Thanksgiving is neat and I am so thankful for lots of things in my life. In this month, I have been sharing some thanksgiving themed cards and one more for today.

This is a no-stamping card that I created using the Doodled Autumn Pumpkin Cover Plate Die and Grateful Heart Phrase Die.

I cut out the fall patterned paper with the cover plate die and run it through the Xyron sticker maker to add adhesive on the backside. I added it on the brown cardstock and added it on a card base with EZ Runner Grand.

I added some of the DecoFoil Glue Pen on the pumpkin shape, let it dried, and then added some of the DecoFoil Gold Sheet.

I cut out one of the DCWV metallic cardstock with the phrase die and I added on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue.

I hope this card will give you an inspiration to play along with the Happy Little Stampers – Anything Goes With Dies Challenge this month.

Kicking off this blog hop… I made two caffeinated cards. First is this CAS Fall themed card for a special friend.

I used the Coffee Lovers Clear Stamps, Fall Greetings Clear Stamps, and Friends and Flowers Clear Stamps on this card.

I tried the no-line watercoloring technique but I still need a practice on this technique… (wink.. wink… ) I stamped the image with Cheerful VersaFine Clair ink pad and then colored it with Arteza Real Brush Pens. After that, I dried the image and then fussy cut it with scissors.

I stamped the cup with Pinecone Versafine Clair ink pad and Tulip Red, then I colored them with Arteza Real Brush Pens and waterbrush. For the steam and sentiment, I stamped them with the same ink pad.

I added the leaves image and cup on the card with Scrapbook Adhesives – EZ Grand Runner and 3D foam tape.

My second card is a mixed media card. I created the mixed media background with gelli printing technique using Helen G. Designs ARTplorations Stencils.

I stamped the cups from the Christmas Cocoa – Joy Clair Clear Stamps on the red printed paper with VersaFine Clair Pinecone ink pad, dried it with craft heater. Then I fussy cut them and I colored them with Faber Castell Big Brush Pens. I added extra highlight on the cups with permanent marker.

I stamped the sentiment from the Coffee Talk – Joy Clair Clear Stamps on a white cardstock, then I trimmed it into sentiment banner, and I added it on top of the card with Scrapbook Adhesives – 3D foam tape.

I added a half-piece of the paper doily on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue and then I added both cups on top of it with Scrapbook Adhesives – EZ Gran Runner. I finished this card with some sequins.

I laid the cover plate die on top of the watercolor paper and using blending brush, I added the colors. I removed the watercolor paper, and then I sprayed the cover plate die with some water lightly, and then I added another piece of watercolor paper on top of that inked, wet cover plate. I gently pressed the paper. I picked up the paper off the cover plate and dried it with craft heater right away.

I sprayed both papers with water lightly with Distress Sprayer bottle and then I dabbed off the water with paper towel and dried them again with craft heater.

STAMPlorations Throwback Thrusday | Thanksgiving Cards

Hello hello hello everyone… It’s the October 31st, so are you all ready for Halloween and trick-or-treat? I know my kiddos are so ready!

On this last Thursday of the month, it is the Throwback Thursday feature post at STAMPlorations. And today is my turn to share my projects on the blog today.

This card that I made back in October 2018 that inspired me to create those three Thanksgiving cards. As you can see, I am inspired by the theme, background, pumpkin, colors, design, and word die.

On my first card, I used the Wonderfall Time Stamp SetBe Thankful Stamps and Coordinating DieStitched Tags Nesting Dies, and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.

For the background, I used ghosting technique. I created the watercolored background with the Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers.

I scribbled the markers on my blending palette (it is simply a laminated cardstock, actually!) and then I sprayed with water.

I added the watercolor paper on it, and gently pressed it dow to blend the colors. I let it sit for a minute to let the watercolor paints soaked into the paper.

I dried the watercolored paper with craft heater and then I stamped the leaf with water. I dabbed off the water with paper towel every time I stamp and then dried it with craft heater. This is a fun and simple way of creating ghosting stamping background.

I stamped the pumpkin with VersaFine Onyx Black and colored it with Leisure Arts Double Ended Markers and waterbrush. I added some white acrylic paint splatters on it. After I dried it with craft heater, I fussy cut with micro-tip scissors. I stamped the sentiment with Cheerful VersaFine Clair Ink Pad and Summertime VersaFine Clair Ink Pad on a white cardstock.

This second card is a no-stamping card. I created it using the Doodle Autumn Pumpkin Cover Plate Die and Thankful Word Die. I use the inlaid die cutting technique to highlight the pumpkin on the card and then I added the word die on top of it with 3D foam tape.

For the last card, I use the Choose To Be Grateful Phrase Die and one of the coloring page from the Blossom Bliss: Ready-To Color Floral Themed Card Fronts.

I colored the page with Watercolor Pencil and I used Colorless Blender Pen to blend the colors instead of using waterbrush. After that, I added some white acrylic paint splatters on it with fan brush. I dried it with craft heater and I added it on the card with adhesive glue runner.

I cut a piece of brown glitter cardstock and white cardstock using the phrase die and I stacked them together with dries-clear adhesive glue. I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.
