Anything Goes With Dies | You Are In My Prayers

Hello everyone… I am here again with a clean and simple card that I created for Happy Little Stampers – Anything Goes With Dies August Challenge.

Head over to Happy Little Stampers blog for more inspirations and to link up your project.

On my CAS card today, I use the Perched Bird CUTplorations Die, Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies – CUTplorations, and Fond Expressions STAMPlorations set.

I started with creating the watercolor background with Distress Oxide ink pads and water. And then I sprinkled some water on it and dabbed it off with paper towel. I dried the panel with craft heater and then cut it with the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies and I added it on a white card with permanent adhesive.

I cut out a black cardstock with Perched Bird CUTplorations Die and I added it on a card with same adhesive. I stamped one of the sentiments from Fond Expressions STAMPlorations set on the right bottom card with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink pad.

Then, I added some white paint splatters on the card using brush and little bit of water.

I hope you all inspired by this card to play along with the challenge this month. I also enter this card at:

Growing In Unity Day 3 – Mixed Media Projects

Hello everyone… It is Day 3 of the Growing in Unity Girl post. Today, I have couple of mixed media projects to share with you all.

First mixed media project is a card. I use the Feather Soft Love stamp set and the Eloise Girl stamp set. It is a very simple mixed media card, with spray paints, embossing, and pigment inks.

I started with stamping the feathers with VersaMark ink pad on a watercolor paper, sprinkled some black glitter embossing powder, and then heat it up with craft heater.

I put the paper in a box and then start sprayed it with blue, teal, purple Marabu Mixed Media Spray Paints. I also sprayed some water to blend the colors. I dried it with craft heater. I trimmed it into 4.25″ x 5.5″ card. I added it on a white card with E-Z Runner Grand Adhesive.

On a white cardstock, I stamped the sentiment with Purple Delight pigment ink, dried it with craft heater, and then I cut it with one of the Circle Dies. I added the sentiment on the card with 3D foam tape and added some matching colors sequins.

This second project, is a mixed media art journal. On this page, I use Insightful Meadows stamp set and Wild & Free stamp set.

On the mixed media page, I added some white gesso with palette knife, and while it was still kindda wet, I stamped it with bubble wrap plastic. I dried it quickly with craft heater. The tricky part drying gesso with craft heater, if it gets too hot, it gets bubbly. So… try to move the craft heater around and keep it on distance so it won’t be too hot.

After the page was dry, I spread a thin layer of the yellow and red acrylic paint with brayer. I dried it again with craft heater (be careful, acrylic paints is the same with gesso). And then, I added some red cherry gelato and lemon gelato, then blended them with my finger. I also created that moon with coconut gelato that I scribbled the circle on the page and smoothed it with finger.

Next step, I stamped the flowers with Pinecone VersaFine Clair ink pad with first and second generation stamping technique. I covered the bottom page to create the flower border silhouette. And I dried the whole page with craft heater again to make sure the pigment ink dried well.

Growing In Unity Day 2 – Caffeinated Cards For Crafty Friends

Hello hello hello everyone… Today is Day 2 for Growing in Unity Girl post. Today, I have three caffeinated cards idea for crafty friends.

On my first card, I used the Martha Girl stamp set. This is one perfect stamp for a crafty friend who loves coffee, or cocoa, or tea.

I created that rainbow, watercolored background with brush pens. I simply scribbled each color (red, yellow, blue) on craft mat, sprayed with water, and then smooshed the watercolor paper on it.

And to get that distress look on it, I dried inks with craft heater, and then I sprayed some more water on it with sprayer bottle, dabbed the water off with paper towel, and then dried it again with craft heater.

I stamped the girl image on it with VersaFine Onyx Black ink pad with stamping tool, and then cut it with one of the Fancy Frames Dies. I added it on a white card with E-Z Runner Grand Adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock, trimmed it into sentiment banner, and then added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

This second card, I used the Coffee & Flowers stamp set. This is a clean-and-simple card, super easy to make.

I stamped the flower and sentiment on a heavyweight white cardtock with VersaFine Onyx Black. And then I simply colored the image with LeisureArts Coloring Pencils. I blended the colors with white coloring pencil. This is a pretty simple technique for beginner colorist.

I trimmed the finished panel with paper trimmer slightly smaller than the card base. I added it on the card with E-Z Runner Grand Adhesive. Then, I wrapped some natural burlap twine on the top of the card. I added a tiny blue gem in the middle of the blue flower, too.

And for the third card, I used the One Sip At A Time stamp set. I love that gorgeous cup and sweet sentiments from this stamp set.

I stamped the cup on a watercolor paper with VersaFine Onyx Black ink pad and then I colored it with Stabilo Woody Watercolor Crayons and water brush. After coloring it, I dried it with craft heater and then I fussy cut the cup with scissors.

I stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock and then trimmed it into a sentiment banner.

I printed one of Gracillie Design digital papers on a 4×6 photo paper and then I added it on a white card with E-Z Runner Grand Adhesive. Then I added the sentiment banner on the top left card with 3D foam tape.

Next, I added some burlap twine on the card to create that wreath and secured it with dries-clear adhesive glue. I added the cup in the middle or the burlap twine wreath with 3D foam tape. I finished this card with some gems.
