The hardest part of this collaboration is actually showing the products I used. You see, the Misti is a daily stamping companion (at this point my regular Misti and Mini Misti are fully loaded and used in tandem on everything) but it isn’t always shown in photos. But believe me, it was required for this card. And then I also used the Thermoweb Masking Magic paper for masking my bluebonnets. Again, not glamorous for photos but an absolute requirement to make this card happen.
I stamped the center flower from the Bluebonnet stamp set onto watercolor paper (multiple times to get full coverage) and then put down a mask that had been stamped and cut from the Masking Magic. These masks are usable over and over so I don’t mind the cutting! I repositioned the stamp and stamped again to get the layered effects on either side. Once I was done, I watercolored the images with Daniel Smith paints and then added the Thank You sentiment.
Now for the winning opportunity! All three companies are offering $25 Gift Certificates to a lucky winner (one each per company). And all you have to do is comment on team member blogs from each of the three participating companies. Super easy! You can find all the participants at the company blogs (each company will list their team).
Happy Release Day!! So happy to share with you some projects I created for the Picket Fence Studios March Release AND a chance to win a $15 gift card for shopping at PFS. Yep, it is a great day!
I am going to get right to it and introduce the new stamp set called Color Can Heal the Soul. This is a pretty paint look image that has beautiful sentiments that you are sure to love. As soon as I saw the stamp set, I thought about creating a coffee cup that I want to have! And even better, Picket Fence Studios has just the die for the job. I inked the paint drip image with a rainbow of colors and then stamped onto white card stock.
Then using the die, I cut out a coffee cup. I thought this sentiment from the set was just what I would put on my morning cup. In fact, I would love this to BE my morning cup for coffee!! To add a bit of texture, I embossed using the Random Dots Stencil. I love using a stencil for embossing…a great way to stretch these must have products! I went into my stash of sequins and started grabbing colors until I found the combination I liked to finish the card.
Next up, I wanted to focus completely on another stencil. A new stencil called Oceans of Fish. As I debated pulling out the Glimmer Paste (and believe me, I almost did), I chose another version of shine for this one. I thought the fish would be amazing in foil! So I grabbed Transfer Gel (which acts pretty much like embossing paste except a little thinner) and applied it to a watercolored panel.
Let the gel dry for at least an hour and then add Deco Foil Transfer Sheets on top with a heat laminator (or foiling machine). I love the shine you get! I added some Embossing Glitter for the sentiment to add to the shine. With all that is going on (more texture and shine in person too), I thought it best to leave this one cleaner.
I hope you like the sets I am featuring today. I’ll be back over the upcoming days and weeks to showcase more of the release! But now…the GIVEAWAY! In your comments, tell me your favorite way to use a stencil (because I always need more ideas). That’s it. Comment and share your idea. I’ll randomly choose one winner and announce on March 19th. Thanks so much for stopping in today! See you soon.
This week Newton’s Nook Designs and Therm O Web are partnering for a fabulous inspiration week! All week long both design teams will be sharing ways to add fun foils and more to your cards using Therm O Web products with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps! There are prizes too! Read all the way to the end of this post to find out how you can win! Something about sparkling foil made me know that I should pull out my Cosmic Newton stamp and Starfield Stencil and I’m so glad I did. I will say that the Therm O Web Deco Foil is a new to me product and I love how easy it is to use. The Transfer Gel works just like embossing paste and then you simply foil over it. For Newton, I stamped in Momento ink first and colored with Copics, then stamped again with Versamark (the Misti is a life-saver here!!) and embossed with silver embossing powder. So easy and no worries about messing up your Copic tips with the embossing. I created a short video to show you the whole process!
Look to the Newton’s Nook Designs and Therm O Web blogs all this week for tons of inspiration!!
