alexandra’s Sunday scrapbooking – Red Star

September 13, 2014

Hello Friends! alexandra here with a Holiday card made with Distress Inks + Distress Markers and this gorgeous Slapstick/Cling…

I started by coloring directly onto the stamp with a red, a yellow and a green marker. I stamped the image on a watercolor paper card…

and then proceeded to blending the leaves and petals with a reservoir brush (a thin wet paint brush also works).

I used the Distress inks to add more intensity to the flower.

I added a sentiment in French using this method How to Print on a Tag

To gave the card an aged look, I also distressed the edges and sprayed some walnut ink.

Thank You!

TRIPLE-Take

September 13, 2014

We have for you some special Saturday stamping inspiration! Get ready to do a double TRIPLE-take! Here’s a look at three different ways to use our NEW T for Transparent set, 30-263 Lush & Lavish, and exact match Creative Dies, 51-072 Autumn Jewels.

30-263

51-072

On this first card, just the Creative Die was used. Simply layer it with the tree (Creative Die 51-073 Haunted Hollow) and add watercolor spatters to the background and you have a fall scene ready to go! Wouldn’t it be fun to create an entire “forest” of trees like this in multiple shapes and colors?

On our next card, the stamped and die cut leaves are hanging from twine, giving new meaning to the season of “fall.” J The stenciled background (25-010 Zigs and Zags) adds a subtle texture to the card. If you are looking for masculine card designs, this would certainly work, just change the sentiment!

And finally, this last card spotlights one leaf layered onto our journaling card Creative Die, 51-055 Shades. The green feature panel on this card would also make a great place-setting name card for your Thanksgiving meal, just replace the sentiment with your loved one’s name.
