VIDEO | Quick & Easy Colouring with Stencils and Ink Blending

Hello there, if you saw my announcement a little while ago, you will know that I am excited to have joined the Altenew Card Design Team, as well as the Video Inspiration Team. My first official DT video went up on their channel a few days ago so I can now share it over here on my blog and YouTube channel too :)


For my first tag and card, I am sharing how to you can add quick and easy colouring to stamped images using stencils and ink blending. I still love colouring but it is nice occasionally to not colour stamped images and colour them with ink blending, which is a lot quicker! 


I started off my tag by die cutting an Altenew Terrific Tag Die from Classic Crest 110lb Solar White Cardstock. I then ran it through my die cutting machine with the Altenew Deck Planks 3D Embossing Folder. To bring out the woodgrain texture a little more, I blended on Altenew Glacier Caves Crisp Dye Ink to the bottom of the tag, blending up to white at the top. 


I took the image from the Altenew Craft Your Life Hello Beautiful Project Kit stamp set and stamped it on to white cardstock with Altenew Obsidian Pigment Ink. I then used the Simple Coloring Stencils from the kit to colour the flowers. I used Small Ink Blending Brushes and more Glacier Caves Inks, plus Altenew Fall Harvest Crisp Dye Inks for the flower centres and Altenew Green Fields Crisp Dye Inks for the leaves. The image was then die cut out using the coordinating dies. 


I also die cut the image another two times from white cardstock so that I could stack it up for dimension. I then added it on to the tag, followed by the sentiment, using Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape. I added twine through the top of the tag and then embellished with a few Altenew Essential Black & White Enamel Dots


Since I know that tags aren't for everyone. I thought that I would show how to incorporate the tag on to a card. I took an A2 white card base and blended ink at the bottom of it, using the same Caribbean Sky Ink that I used on the tag. I made sure to bring the ink blending on the card to the same height as the tag. 


I adhered the tag on top with foam tape and then added a few more enamel dots popped behind the tag. This, as well as the ink blending, brings the tag and card together, I think.

STAMPtember 2021 | Make A Wish

Hello there, and happy 18th STAMPtember! As part of the STAMPtember collaborations, Simon Says Stamp is teaming up with Hero Arts today to bring you the Make A Wish set. This stamp set is exclusive to Simon Says Stamp and once it sells out, it will not be restocked so if you like it, grab it while you can! The set is perfect for birthdays but great for any celebrations and anyone who loves desserts! 


I thought I would create some birthday tags, as I always need birthday cards and tags! I started off by die cutting the Hero Arts Nesting Tags Infinity Dies from Bristol Smooth Cardstock for the fronts and white cardstock for the back. On the Bristol Smooth tags, I added ink blending using Ink Blending Brushes and Hero Arts Reactive Inks. 


I used Pool Party, Splash, Blue Hawaii and Purple Galaxy for the larger tag and Creamsicle, Taffy and Berry Smoothie for the smaller one. I then sprayed and splattered on Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz and set them aside to dry. Once dry, I adhered the white cardstock tags to the back for more stability and to make sure the backs are clean. 


I took two of the images from the Simon Says Stamp + Hero Arts Make A Wish Stamp Set and stamped them on to Classic Vellum Layering Paper with Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. I then cut them with the same tag dies, as well as as the topper pieces from Pitch Black Cardstock. The tags were secured together with twine.

Although you cannot see much of the background in the photos, in real life, since the vellum layer is not attached, it can be lifted up to see the sparkly goodness underneath! There are lots of other fun images in this set, including lots of desserts. Please head over to the Simon Says Stamp Blog for more inspiration. Thanks so much for stopping by today, wishing you a wonderful weekend!

VIDEO | MFT Autumn Fox

Hello there, I am over on the My Favorite Things YouTube channel today, sharing a card using the Let's Curl Up set from last year. This is definitely one of my favourites. I just love those foxes! Since we are going into autumn now, I thought I would create an autumnal feel to the card. 


I started off by stamping the fox, leaves and mushrooms from the MFT Let's Curl Up Stamp Set on to white cardstock with MFT Extreme Black Ink. I coloured them with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) and then die cut them out using the MFT Let's Curl Up Die-namics
 

I then stamped the sentiment from the set on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip using the MFT Skinny Strips Die-namics. I took a panel of white cardstock and using an ink blending brush, blended Tim Holtz Stormy Sky Distress Ink at the top of the panel, blending down to white. 


The panel was adhered to an A2 white card base and then the sentiment strip added with foam tape. The mushrooms and leaves were adhered on top with MFT On-Point Precision Glue. The fox was then adhered with foam tape. To finish off, I added white gel pen highlights to the fox and glaze pen to his eyes.

Here is the video showing how I made the card:

Altenew | Craft Your Life Project Kit: Hello Beautiful Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there, today we are releasing the third Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit. This month is Hello Beautiful and let me tell you, it really is beautiful! The kit can be purchased separately or as part of the Craft Your Life Subscription, so that you never miss a kit. More on the kit below. We are celebrating the release with a fun blog hop with prizes, more on that below too. 


For my first card, I started off by stamping one of the floral bouquets from the Hello Beautiful stamp set in the Altenew Craft Your Life: Hello Beautiful Project Kit, on to white cardstock with Altenew Obsidian Black Ink. I then took the Simple Coloring Stencil in the kit and used this to colour the images. There are lots of layers to build up the colour but I decided to use just one for a minimal look.

I used Altenew Glacier Caves Crisp Dye Inks for the flowers and Altenew Green Fields Crisp Dye Inks for the leaves using Altenew Small Ink Blending Tools. They were die cut out with the Hello Beautiful dies (also in the kit) and set aside. I took an A2 white card base and masked off the edges. Using an Altenew Ink Blending Tool, I blended on more Glacier Caves inks, focusing most of the colour in the top left hand corner. 

I took the sentiment from the stamp set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Altenew Embossing Ink. I applied Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip. I adhered the flower on to the card base first and then the sentiment on top, both with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape. To finish off, I added a few Bubbles. 

For my next card, I started off by taking a panel of white cardstock and using Altenew Ink Blending Tools, blended Altenew Glacier Caves and Green Fields Crisp Dye Inks on to it. The blue in the upper left corner and the green in the bottom right, meeting in the middle. The panel was run through my die cutting machine with the Hello Beautiful 3D Embossing Folder (also in the kit). 

I took white pigment ink and blended it over the raised areas on the panel. The panel was adhered to an A2 white card base with foam tape. I then heat embossed the sentiment from the stamp set on to black cardstock, heat set and cut out. It was added to the card with foam tape also. To finish off, I added a few Bubbles.

Spellbinders | Holiday Poinsettia

Hello there, today I have a card to share with you using the Poinsettia Etched Dies from Susan's Holiday Flora Collection from Spellbinders. This is the first time I have used a flower die from Susan's collections. They are beautiful dies that are made so that you can assemble flowers to look very realistic. I went a little less realistic on my card, but you can follow video tutorials from her, so that you know how to assemble the flowers. 

 
I started off by die cutting the largest of the Spellbinders Poinsettia Etched Dies from Spellbinders Rainforest Cardstock, twice. I then cut it another two times from Spellbinders Wild Berry Cardstock. The smaller petals were cut from Spellbinders Dahlia Cardstock (just once). There is a centre part of the flower but I did not use it on my card. With all of the pieces, I added shading to them using Distress Inks. 


Using the Spellbinders Tool N' One, I scored lines on the petals and then folded up the sides of the petals to give more dimension. I took the Spellbinders Woodland Wreath and Feathered Friends Etched Dies and cut the wreath from Spellbinders Portobello Cardstock. I blended Distress Ink on to it too and then added it to an A2 white card base with Bearly Art Glue, letting the top overhang but cutting off the side. The poinsettia was then adhered layer by layer on top. 


I took the sentiment from the Spellbinders Mini Christmas Sentiment Strips Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set and foiled the 'merry christmas' on to black cardstock with Spellbinders Champagne Foil. It was cut out with the die and added to the card with foam squares. To finish off, I added Spellbinders Gold Mix Color Essential Gems to the wreath and centre of the poinsettia.

Reverse Confetti | September 2021 Release Blog Hop

Hello there, I am delighted to be joining Reverse Confetti today to celebrate the release of the September 2021 Release. There is something for everyone in this release - autumn/fall, a little bit of holiday/Christmas and also Halloween. Plus products that can be used all year round too! I was kindly sent some of the super cute Halloween items for my projects today. We are celebrating the release with a fun blog hop, more on that below. 


For my card, I started off by die cutting the new Reverse Confetti All Lined Up Cover Panel Confetti Cuts from white cardstock. I also cut it from purple, orange and black cardstock, so I could inlay the stripes. The white panel was adhered on to an A2 white card base and then the stripes added inside for the inlay look. I then took the new Reverse Confetti Layered Boo Confetti Cuts and cut the bottom layer three times from white cardstock and the top layer twice from black cardstock.


I also cut it once from black glitter paper. They were layered up with glue and then adhered to the card. I took the sentiment from the new Reverse Confetti Halloween Sentiments Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added Lucy's Ebony Mix Crystals around the sentiment and tiny googly eyes on the boo.  


My next projects use the new Boo Day set, which is super cute! I thought I would create some tags with the images. I started off by die cutting the Reverse Confetti Fold Over Window Tag Confetti Cuts twice from Lavender cardstock. Using an ink blending tool, I blended Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Wilted Violet and Black Soot around the edges of the tags. 


For the ghost one, I added white cardstock inside, followed by a piece of vellum. For the cat one, I simply added vellum only. They were folded up and adhered closed. I took the ghost and cat images from the Reverse Confetti Boo Day Stamp Set and stamped them on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. They were coloured using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) and then fussy cut out with scissors but there are dies available.


For the ghost tag, I took the 'boo!' sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Halloween Sentiments Stamp Set and stamped it on to the front of the tag with black ink. The images were then adhered on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added twine through the top of them.

Hero Arts | September 2021 My Monthly Hero Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there and welcome as we celebrate the release of the Hero Arts September 2021 My Monthly Hero Release. The theme this month is fall goodness and the main kit features the most gorgeous sunflowers! The add on sets feature more flowers, some Halloween and autumnal themes. We are celebrating with a fun, inspiration filled blog hop with prizes, please see below for more details. 

 
My first card that I am sharing today features the main kit. I created another card using the main kit for the countdown, which you can see here. On that card I used the stencil, for this card I am using the stamp set but you can combine them so that you can colour with the stencil. I started off by stamping the sunflowers image from the Hero Arts September 2021 My Monthly Hero Kit on to white cardstock with Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink.


I coloured it with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) and die cut it out with the coordinating die. I took a top folding card base and using Hero Arts Ink Blending Brushes, blended on Hero Arts Lemon Drop Reactive Ink first, followed by Hero Arts Just Rust Mid-Tone Shadow Ink. Focusing most of the colour at the top and blending to white at the bottom. The sunflowers were adhered on top with thin foam tape. 


I took the thanks word die in the kit and cut it three times from white cardstock with adhesive sheet on the back. They were stacked up and adhered to the card. I then took the sentiment from the Hero Arts Color Layering Pumpkin Stamp Set (an add-on set this month) and stamped it on to Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock with Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Hero Arts White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more thin foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Ice Cube Jewels. 


My next card uses the new Marigolds set, which is an add-on this month. I started off by stamping the flower head, leaves and stem from the Hero Arts Marigolds Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink. They were coloured with Copic Markers and die cut out with the Hero Arts Marigolds Frame Cuts


I took a top folding card base and masked off the bottom corner. Using Hero Arts Ink Blending Brushes, I then blended on Hero Arts Splash and Blue Hawaii Reactive Inks, followed by Hero Arts Navy Mid-Tone Shadow Ink. The mask was removed and the flower and leaves adhered with a combination of thin foam tape and Hero Arts Precision Glue


I took the sentiment from the Hero Arts Autumn Messages Stamp Set (another add-on set this month) and stamped it on to Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock with Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more thin foam tape.

Altenew | Craft-A-Flower Dendrobium Orchid Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there, if you saw my announcement on social media over the weekend, you will have seen that I am delighted to have joinied the Altenew Card Design Team, as well as the Video Inspiration Team! I will be sharing a look at my new video series later in the month but for now, we are celebrating the release of the Craft-A-Flower: Dendrobium Orchid Layering Die Set. You can purchase the set separately, or with Gradient Cardstock in a bundle. We are celebrating the release with a fun blog hop, more details on that below. 


I started off my card by die cutting the Altenew Craft-A-Flower Dendrobium Orchid Layering Die Set using Altenew New Purple Gradient Cardstock for the petals and Altenew Green Meadows Gradient Cardstock for the stem and leaves. 


I cut the stem twice so that I could extend the length of it. I adhered the stems and leaves first on to a 5.5" x 4" (narrower so that I can have the flower overhanging the edge and it still fit in an A2 envelope) card base with Altenew 2 in 1 Precision Glue. I then layered up the petals (there is a guide with the set for how to layer them up which comes very much in handy!) and then adhered them on top of the leaves and stems. 


I took the sentiment from the Altenew Sentiment Strips 2 Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Altenew Embossing Ink. I applied Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape. To finish off, I added a few Lucy's Bubbles.
