Theresa is sharing some tips to add accents to your pattern paper.The pattern paper the design team has been using for cards provides an excellent opportunity to add some detail. There took the opportunity to try a new product to her, Nuvo Radiant Gold Gilding Flakes, to create some blingy accents to the Craft Consortium Ink Drops – Candy 6x6 paper. Using the Nuvo Medium Glue Pen, Theresa traced around the tan outlines. The fun, messy part is placing the flakes on the glued areas and burnishing it with your finger to ensure it adheres to the paper. Highly recommend...
Have you ever tried using ink on an embossing folder? The results may surprise and delight you! Here, Karen used Distress Oxide inks and the 3D- Knitted folder by Sizzix to create pieces for these cards. Step 1: Using a blending tool (such as the Blending Brushes from Taylored Expressions), transfer ink onto the inside of the embossing folder. You can experiment with either side of the folder, each side will be slightly different. Karen blended 3 colours of ink in a striped pattern. Step 2: Place a piece of cardstock/paper in the folder, close the folder, and run it...
Create beautiful backgrounds (and even a cut-out shape) with Distress Oxide Inks, blending brushes and a stencil.For the first piece: Karen applied three different shades of ink onto a sheet of Neenah Classic Crest cardstock creating an ombré look. For the second piece: Karen die cut a heart shape and used low tack tape to adhere it to the cardstock. She placed a stencil from Vicki Boutin on top and blended on the ink, keeping the lightest colour in the centre and the darker inks towards the edges. Next, images from Lawn Fawn’s “Charge Me Up” stamp set were stamped,...
Using a Card Kit is a great place to start when you need some inspiration. Karen used Photoplay’s Tulla and Norbert’s Christmas Party Card Kit to make these winter themed designs. Here’s what Karen had to say about the process:Card 1: I started by following the instructions included in the card kit. Then, I switched out the background paper and sentiment sticker, removed one snowman sticker and added some snowflake sequins. Card 2: I used the snowflake background paper that was intended for card 1, added some scrap strips of paper and a hand-cut snowdrift. Next, I ran this piece...
