Try Stampin' on Tuesday #567

Hello friends! Today at Try Stampin' on Tuesday's Challenge #567we another wonderful challenge to share and hope that you join us.

Supplies used:


Card #1 


To begin this card, I stamped the envelope image from Honey Bee Stamp's Happy Mail stamp set nine times on watercolor paper with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink and then heat embossed with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder. I then colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and added sparkle in each heart with my Stardust Gelly Roll pen. The envelopes were then fussy cut. 

The background was created by die cutting a piece of gray cardstock with an A2-sized stitched rectangle die in my stash. I then ink blended through the Rubbernecker Stamps' Geometric #1 stencil with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink and added Frosted Crystal and Vintage Pearl embossing powders over the ink and heat embossed them. Next, I ink blended around the edges of the panel and again added more Vintage Pearl embossing powder and heat embossed. Finally, I stamped some Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide splatters using a very old splatter stamp in my stash. I then set aside the panel.

The sentiment came from the same Happy Mail stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps, again stamped in Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink, this time on a scrap piece of watercolor paper that I had sprayed with Technique Junkies' Vivid Volt Shimmering Bliss spray for another project. After the VersaFine Clair ink dried, I colored in the heart with my red Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker and added sparkle onto the arrows with my Stardust Gelly Roll pen. I then trimmed the cardstock to be just a little larger than the sentiment and trimmed the right edge at an angle for some more pizazz. Then I ink blended around the edges with more of the Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink. 

To assemble the card, I attached the envelopes onto the die cut panel with Altenew's Instant Dimension Foam Tape to mimic the sketch. I then added a piece of black glitter washi tape to the panel that is just slightly larger than the sentiment strip and trimmed on the right to mimic the diagonal line of the sentiment. I repeated the process with a light blue washi tape strip. The sentiment strip was attached with more foam tape over the washi tape. Some blue sequins from Catherine Pooler's Blackfoot River sequin mix were then glued to the panel. Finally, the whole panel was glued onto a white A2-sized cardbase.


Card #2

This card's background was created by taking a piece of watercolor paper that had previously been watercolor smooshed and to add more watercolor. I kept adding some watercolor made from some of the same colors of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers mixed with water and Imagine Crafts' Frost Sheer Shimmer Spritz. I also added splatters of ink from the same colors as well. A few times I added some Vintage Pearl embossing powder onto the splatters or watercolors to heat emboss as well. After die cutting the panel with an A2-sized stitched rectangular die, I ink blended around the edges of the panel with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the panel with more Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink and colored in the same way (red Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker for the heart, and Stardust Gelly Roll pen for the arrows). 

The rest of the card was created in the same was as the first card.

We hope you are able to join us this week on Try Stampin' on Tuesday. Thanks for reading!
