VIDEO: Caring Hands Eclipse Cards with Channin

Hello friends! It's Channin here and today I have a pair of colorful cards and video to share featuring the Caring Hands stamps and dies from Waffle Flower Crafts. Today’s card uses the MISTI and the eclipse technique to add a cool dimensional effect to my sentiment!



To create these cards I first stamped a sentiment from Caring Hands Sentiment Stamp set onto an A2 panel of rainbow patterned paper in VersaFine Onyx Black Ink using my MISTI. I left my stamp inside my MISTI and then adhered the rainbow panel onto the front of an A2 top-folding card base.


Next, I stamped the praying hands from the Caring Hands Stamp Set in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto Neenah Solar White cardstock. I then copic (E30 & E31 or E35 & E37) colored the hands and then die cut them with the matching die. 





Next, I grabbed a scrap A2 panel of cardstock, popped it into my MISTI and stamped the same sentiment I stamped on the rainbow panel. I then centered the praying hands die over the stamped sentiment and then ran them through my die cutting machine. I then discarded the die cut hands and placed the scrap panel back into my MISTI to use as a jig. With my jig in place, I then popped my copic colored hands into the jig and stamped my sentiment once more. 





Lastly, I finished the card by adhering my hands to the card front with foam adhesive, making sure to line up the letters on the hands with the letters on the card front.


I hope you enjoyed my cards and video! Thank you so much for stopping by!

 Hey cardies, welcome back.  Sandi here and I have a fun Bunny Blessings Slimline Card to share with you today.

Simon Says Stamp had a new release yesterday and I can't stop playing with this new Bunny Blessings stamp set.  SO much fun to color.



How to Create the Bunny Blessings Slimline Card:

  • Use the Misti to stamp the images onto Hammermill card stock with Copic Friendly Black Ink.
  • Color the images with copic markers, (listed below)
  • Cut the background @ 3-1/2 x 8-1/2 and use blending brushes to add Squeezed Lemonade and Broken China Distress Oxide Inks.  Just a light coating
  • Cover the background with the Simon Says Stamp Tumbled Hearts stencil and add a second layer of the Distress Oxide Inks.
  • Place another 3 x 4 piece of white card into the Misti and stamp the grass image twice across the top
  • Color with Copic Markers and cut out the grass image from the top (leaving the bottom intact)
  • Adhere to the bottom front of the card front and trim from the back.
  • Place the card front back into the Misti and dry fit all the pieces to the background.  Stamp the sentiment in black in.
  • Cut a card base at 8 x 9 and score at 4.  
  • Attach the card front to the card base.
  • Add your art pieces with Foam Squares to heighten them slightly

Team Tuesday with Ceal



\

Hey Y'all!
It's Ceal, here. Today I am sharing a card where the MISTI is a must have. 
Today I am sharing a card that uses a technique that I learned a few years ago when I took Kathy Racoosin's class at Junkiefest. 



To create this card, I started with a white top folding card base and a white express it panel for the copic coloring. 
I placed the stamp in the Original MISTI and stamped the floral image from the Wild Peonies set by Picket Fence Studios in Prickly Pear ink by Gina K Designs. I left the stamp in the MISTI because I will need to stamp again after I finish the coloring.
I colored my entire panel except the flowers with Copic markers in RV14, RV17 and RV19 to get the ombre' effect. 
Next using a small piece of terry cloth and some Copic colorless blender I picked up some of the ink all over the panel to get the texture, then placed the panel back in the misti and over stamped the peonies with embossing ink and embossed them with gold powder. 
To finish the card I cut the Hello out of gold foil paper and placed it on a vellum backing and adhered to the front of the card.

Hello with The Ton Stamps

Hi everyone!Ilina here. Today I am sharing a slimline card using The Ton Eucalyptus grouped stamping set along with the Slimline Quilted Cover plate. 
The Ton's group stamping sets are basically designed to work with the MISTI and you stamp all elements at once. They have guide marks too, so it takes the guess work out of the layering. You will just need to line up those guides when positioning the layers and you are good to go. Also the coordinating dies cut all elements at once! Makes so easy to mass produce.
To make the card I used inks from Pink Fresh Studio: Mint, Meadow and Emerald City. Once I stamped the images I die cut them. 
Stamped sentiment on black card stock (the sentiment is part of the same stamp set) and embossed in white. Trimmed to size. 
Die cut the slimline cover plate from white card stock and assembled my card!

Quick and Easy Florals with Susan



Hello! 

This card and the inspiration for it were from Facebook Lives by Dawn Woleslagle of WPlus 9 Designs. You can find her group here.  This card has lots of layers as I was CASEing a card by Dawn. Most importantly, what I learned during that class was another way to make a lot of die cut florals quickly.

I first made a 6x6 panel of ink smooshing with various similarly colored Distress Oxides or Hero Arts Reactive Inks. I used Vicki Bouton's Foundations paper for all of these panels. I was careful to leave some areas of the paper white or with little to no ink. 


Above you can see that I laid out each of the florals I was using on my new MISTI. I stamped all the florals and sentiments in Versafine Onyx Black. You absolutely need a MISTI for this production line of florals as I call it. Also note that the large floral is over top both a colored area and a white area.


I also stamped the same images onto a sheet of plain Foundations paper. Below is an example of the finished florals. 


It was amazing how many florals I could make in one stamping and die cutting session. With the MISTI I was blazing along with this technique. In the picture below you can see that I have even have enough left over to make 2 additional cards.



Thanks for stopping by;
Susan

Pretty Postage Card with Channin


Hello friends! It's Channin here and today I have sweet little valentine share! I used the new Pretty Postage Stamp Set from Honey Bee Stamps to create this card. 


To create this card I first stamped the main image from the Pretty Postage Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto white cardstock. 



I then copic colored the image and then die cut it out with the matching die. 

Red Flowers: (inside) R24, R35, R29, R46

    (outside) R35, R29, R46, R59

Flower Centers: Y11 & Y15

Mint Green: YG11 & YG41

Green: G43 & YG67

Envelope: R00, R20, R22



Next I die cut an 4 1/8” x 5 3/8” panel of light pink cardstock with the Quilted A2 Cover Plate Die. I then adhered the panel to an A2 top-folding white card base. Next, I adhered my image with foam adhesive. Lastly, I stamped, white heat-embossed, and die cut my sentiment and then adhered it to my card front with foam adhesive. 


I hope you enjoyed my card! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hey There, Dumpling

 Hi everyone!

Ilina here. Today I am sharing super cute card using one of the new Catherine Pooler Designs Sets called Hey there dumpling.

To make the card I cut down a piece of white card stock A2 size and with the help of the MISTI I stamped all the dumplings in two different colors, Sand Castle and Do-Si-Do. Once I had stamped the dumplings I stamped the little faces the same way. Then the little cheeks and dots and hearts around it. Once I was satisfied with the result trimmed the panel to 4" x 5 1/4". 

Stamped the sentiment on black card stock and embossed in white. Die cut a vellum heart and assembled my card.
