Team Tuesday on a Wednesday


Hello Everyone!
It's Ceal, here to share a couple cards with you today.
For both my samples I used a technique that Gina K shared on her YouTube channel, ink blending with pencil accents. 

To create the first card I placed a white panel in the Original MISTI, I also used the Creative Corners so I could stamp this large flower by Picket Fence Studios in the center of the panel. I used these amazing Brushes and blended ink over the entire image after I blended the pink and green ink, I used Polychromos pencils for accents. I placed the panel in the Mini MISTI and stamped the greeting and embossed it in clear powder.



To create the second card, it was pretty much the same except I embossed the image this time using Ink on 3's embossing ink and white powder.  I also used one of my favorite sentiment sets on this one. 

Give this technique a try, it's fun!

Tea Tuesday with Kia

Berry Bramble Joyful

 When I was thinking about a card to do for today's post I knew I wanted to use Black Soot Distress Ink. When picking a stamp to use I thought this Berry Bramble from Penny Black would be perfect.

This is a longer post than normal as I have included a picture tutorial explaining the card process I did.

Using Arches cold press watercolour paper I first blended on the Distress Inks using Iced Spruce, then added in the Black Soot. To brighten up the middle I painted in some Dr. P. Martins Bleed Proof ink and with my paint brush blended it out toward the edges, then splattered with water.

In my Misti (original) using Ink on 3 Fade Out ink I stamped the image a couple of times. With my aqua brush and bleach I then coloured the berries with the bleach and went over them with clear water. 
Once dry I added my colour by colouring the stamp and transferring the colour with the door. I am using Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens in seasonal colours to do this, and
adding darker colours for blending.
As I am doing a 3.5 x 8.5 card I need to rig something up to add to the bottom of my card. I got out my Stay-tion and using the grid lines and magnets set up my mini Misti and used the top of the door for my stamp. I just need to ensure I held the Misti in place, using the grid lines as I stamped. It worked perfectly for me. 
Once finished with the colouring I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. 
Using my fan brush I added splatters of white acrylic paint and waited for the paint to dry before moving on to adding Distress Micro Glaze to the card and buffing with a clean cloth.
I find this enhances the colour nicely. I then attached the panel to a black card base and added Nuvo Glitter Drops in Silver Glitter to finish.

Thank you for joining me today.

Taylored Expressions Nativity Card



I love it when I see a new product and I know what I want to make with it right away.   I used the inspiration from the Taylored Expressions A Savior is Born sample.    I combined it with the Follow the Star Die set.  Super easy with with the Altenew Galaxy Washi and the Watercolor Nebula Washi.  


Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the video.

Wreath Cards



Oh my gosh....it's that time again to make Christmas cards.  I have been working on this video for almost 2 weeks.  Something is always coming up.  Here we finally are.  I started off with the Concord & 9th Magnolia Wreath  stamp along with their Shiplap Stamp set.  Then, I added a sentiment from the Altenew Blessings stamp.  While searching for that one I found the Peaceful Wreath stamp set.


The Peaceful Wreath needed an embossed back ground.  I chose to use the Taylored Expressions Brick embossing folder.   I found that using the Kool Tak clear foam adhesive was not very noticeable when I placed it behind the words.

Be sure to check out the video to see the different embossing folders that I used to make variations of the card.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
