Hi there everyone and happy Thursday!
All this week we have been showing you little sneaks of our awesome new stamp sets and dies! Tomorrow our new release goes live and to celebrate we are showing you some beautiful projects, Today!!!
I have created two cards for today’d hop and the first one has a step-by-step video to boot. I have used the beautiful Zen Bouquet on both cards- I printed out the large image in the stamp set on my laser printer and cut it in half so I had two pieces to use on both of the cards- pretty nifty right?!?!
Once I had printed the image I then blended over the image, you want to do this before you foil as the ink may take off the colour of the foil and we don’t want that happening. For the card in the video I used Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple and Wild Honey Distress Inks and for the blue card I used Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio. When I was happy with the blending I used some water to flick some water splotches onto the card and left to dry.
For the sentiment I used Kindness die set to create a stacked die cut- to do this cut a number of the words in white card and one in gold mirror card, glue the word die cuts on top of each other with the gold mirror one on the top. The rest of the sentiment is gold heat embossed using Smile stamp set.
For a more detailed view please check out my video below…
I hope you enjoyed the video and here’s a look at the other card I made with the other half of the printed image- I used the same techniques to make this card.
