Friends of Unity March hop, Designers choice!!
Hello, and welcome to the March Friends of Unity blog hop. This month we have a Designers choice. YAY!
My first card, I wanted to do something to show you to not be afraid to add some ink to pattern paper. Pattern paper is typically thin, and does not take a ton of water well, but you can add some dimension with distress ink. I did some distress oxide on my glass matt and smooshed then dryed it with the ranger heat tool If it's wrinkly you can run it through your die cut machine to flatten but I've never had a problem. When doing this type of stuff less is more. don't go overboard with thinner papers. I then added a die cut from simon says stamp, and added a little glitter that is honeycomb shaped to the die cut. I did a close up so you can see it. Got it at target so dang cute!
For this card I used Cuddlebug bee and you can find it here!
This next card is a newer stamp, I love this style it's easy to color, and it's a really nice size. I colored it with copic markers for the flowers I did r83 and r85 for the cup I did y15 and y17 I added washi tape to the background, just to add something to the card. GET THAT WASHI OUT. and use it. I splatterd the card in gold. and added a few sequins. Easy peasy. This stamp is called Fresh Start and can be found HERE! The gold splatters are done with water I did a super quick video on how to do this on you tube and it can be found HERE! It's for a different card, but if you've not embossed like this with water it will show you how. if you look close you'll see it on the black matting. It's not real easy to see on camera on the white. But IRL, you can see it.
For my final card, I used a frame to highlight the image. I just used a type paper in the background to break up the white and striped paper, sometimes, solid colors are a bit much but white on white was not working, so using a neutral kind of breaks things up. I again just used copics to color the image. pattern paper and a gina marie die. This stamp is called hanging Botanicals and can be found HERE!
Well, that is all I have for you today. I hope these simple cards, motivate you to get your stamps out and play.
