Hi All, welcome to another fun blog post for the Craftie Cafe Store. Today I will be focusing on this stampset from Taylored Expressions “Cutting Edge Flowers stamps and dies”
Today I thought I would show you how the Lawn Fawn Yeti ink looks on Kraft coloured cardstock. I have repeat stamped the large floral image from the stampset several tines in random order. Even though this is rather subtle it is just another nice way to have created your own “pattern paper” as such. This is great way for maximizing your supplies with minimal effort.
I find having the Lawn Fawn Yeti ink is ‘must have’ in my ink collection. I love using my white ink in a variety of ways. In my process video for today’s card I have used this ink to make the WOW Embossing Powder which has an iridescent glitter throughout it stand out a little more instead of having used a clear sticky ink such as a versamark. This was a way for the opaqueness of the white ink to make the glitter stand out the little more.
To add a pop of colour I have used Distress Oxide inks and created my own “coloured cardstock ” as such as I have generously applied the Distress Oxide ink on white cardstock with a blending tool. In hind site I could have just swiped the ink pad directly on the cardstock ….. a mental note for myself for next time. Do you have those moments where you realize after the fact there could have been an easier way. Yep that was one of those moments for me here.
Once the distress oxide ink is dried I ran through the Sizzix Bigshot with the Lawn Fawn Mini Pop Up Butterflies dies to cut out these bold butterflies.
I have layered the butterflies that are the same sizes doubling up to add another element to these which I have placed these randomly on the card. The single butterflies that I had remaining I placed on the inside of the card.
Here is the process video for you to watch.
