Uniquely Creative – Rose Gold Foil Hello

Card Size : 4 1/8” x 5 7/8” Kraft Top Folding

Steps –

  1. Die cut with the cross-stitched circle die with white cardstock. This will cut the inner part of the circle and the outer cross stitched outline piece.
  2. Ink blend with Distress Inks Victoria Velvet, Tattered Rose & Seedless Preserves in Oxide Inks with a mini round ink blending tool. Start from lightest colour to darkest and work your way back. TIP : Use a post it not to protect your fingers and not leave any finger marks on your blended panel. Set aside to dry.
  3. Stamp the wreath with Versafine Onyx Black ink and then die cut with the coordinating dies.
  4. With the toner sheets die cut the hello die. I have used WOW! Fab Foils in the Rose Gold and run that through my mini minc machine.
  5. I start adhering all the pieces down with a liquid pen and foam adhesives.

Kat Scrappiness : Wine Not?

Hi all, Jo here and welcome to a clean and simple card design for you. One thing I like to do is stretch the dies I have and use them in different ways. For today’s card creation I have used my dies as a back drop on my card front. With using white cardstock on white cardstock I was able to get a tone on tone effect. I find this technique can be impactful in a subtle way. The die I have used today is from the September release Wine Not?  from Kat Scrappiness collection.

For a pop of colour I have used a deep red / cherry colour cardstock die cut with the stitched hearts from the Kat Scrappiness collection.

For the sentiment I have used the coordinating stampset and heat embossed with Opaque Bright White Super Fine from WOW! Embossing Powders.

I finished the card off with some Clear Sparkling jewels.

I have made a quick video tutorial on how I made the card below.

DIY Glitter Paste with WOW Sparkles

Hi WOW Paper Crafting Peeps, Jo here bringing to you a very exciting new technique.

Can you imagine making an array of your very own glitter paste?

Well today I show case a technique by using the WOW Sparkles range mixed with Ranger Texture Paste in a Transparent Gloss.

I started off with ink blending some Lawn Fawn Stitched Heart die cuts with Ranger Distress Oxide inks which what I will add my layer of glitter paste on top off.

I made sure the inked die cuts where thoroughly dry but heat setting with my heat gun.

I then moved on to making the paste. To pick up the paste from the jar I used a plastic spatula which is the tool of choice to also mix and combine the sparkles powder and paste.

The WOW crafting mat is really good to protect your surface as well as use as a mixing pallet.

Check out my You Tube on the mixing process.

For the card base I have used white top folding cardstock and black cardstock to die cut the Avery-Elle Horizontal Stripes background die. For the sentiments both hugs dies and add on prayers stampset I have adhered this down on the glitter hearts with either a liquid or foam adhesives.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card creations and would love to hear your thoughts on this technique.

Inspired By Stamping

Hi All, Today’s post is about a sweet simple card set that is quick easy PLUS be mass produced!
Supplies – 4 x4 white card stock base, 3 3/4 inch black matting or plain pattern paper, water colour card stock twine, circle dies, distress inks and an aqua brush.
Steps –
  1. I first heat embossed using clear embossing powder on the black cardstock, you can use any striped stampset or background stampset such as Inspired By Stamping Basics Lines OR alternatively you can use pattern paper. I wrapped some white and gold twine around the black cardbase towards the top and mounted this on the white card base.
  2. I die cut white cardstock with a stitched circle die. Inspired By Stamping has one that is in their Fancy Labels 3 Nesting Dies collection.  I have used the Fancy Circles stampset as they have beautiful script medium size sentiments perfect for a multiple of occasions with Versafine Onyx Black Ink stamped on the top right of each circle die cut.
  3. For the flowers I have used the Flower of the Month “Poppies  which  I stamped the images with Distress Inks Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick & Ripe Persimmon on water colour cardstock . I used my aqua brush pentel pen to drag colour from the stamped image and picked up extra colour to  colour the alternate leaves adding contrast to the petals. Each flower was then cut individually and placed on the bottom right of the circle.
I created these cards production line format where I took each step and repeated it as many times as I needed for each set. I made 3 sets each for my kids school teachers to give for the end of year presents.  Hope you enjoyed today’s blog post and don’t forget to visit the Inspired By Stamping blog for more inspiration and tutorials. –
Hugs Jo
