Technique Squad Blog Hop

This month’s technique is Creator’s Choice and I chose to do the Whitewash Technique. I saw a card by Lisa Freeman on Facebook and I LOVED IT! I decided that was the technique I wanted to do.

I pulled out my Shaded Summer stamp set to make a background with this technique. (It doesn’t matter that it’s January in Minnesota, I can make a summer card.) I stamped on Magenta Madness cardstock with Magenta Madness ink and then I used my Whisper White ink and a Blender Pen to fill in the flowers. I intended to add some gems to the card but I forgot, I really love how it turned out anyway. The layout was inspired by Inspire.Create.Challenge 108.

First I stamped on Magenta Madness cardstock with Magenta Madness ink.
I colored in the flowers with Whisper White ink using a Blender pen.

Technique Squad July Blog Hop

This month’s theme is alcohol ink techniques. Um…well…this is not my best technique but I tried. I made a card out of the best piece I ended up with. From my experience, vellum works much better than window sheets but that’s the only tip I really have. 🙂 UPDATE: I’ve been informed that a higher percentage would work better, I was using 70%. I will have to try again.

I used the Magenta Madness dark Stampin’ Blend, rubbing alcohol, an old brush, and a can of compressed air to create these. I then added Tombow multipurpose liquid glue (let it dry because it stays sticky) and added Gilded Leaves gold leafing on the glue. I used Tear & Tape to attach the vellum behind the embossed white cardstock and popped it up on dimensionals.

Shaded Summer Birthday

I don’t normally show products before they are available but I love these dies so much and I want to make sure you know about them. The Summer Shadows dies will be available on August 3rd as a FREE item in the August/September Sale-a-bration catalog with a $100 order but they are only available while supplies last.

I’m following a sketch from the Paper Craft Crew Challenge and I wanted to highlight this beautiful flower from the Shaded Summer stamp set. I used my Stamparatus to stamp the image on watercolor paper first with Basic Gray ink a couple of times to get a nice dark image and then with Versamark so I could emboss with black embossing powder. The texture of the watercolor paper made it a challenge to get a crisp image when I just used Versamark and embossing powder. The card base is Old Olive but my photo looks a little brighter than that.

Supplies:
Stamp Sets – Shaded Summer
Die Cutting & Embossing – Hippo & Friends dies, Stitched Greenery die, Summer Shadows dies
Ink – Basic Gray stamp pad, Old Olive stamp pad, Rich Razzleberry stamp pad, Versamark stamp pad
Paper – Basic White Thick cardstock, Old Olive cardstock, Rich Razzleberry cardstock, watercolor paper
Accents & Embellishments – Square Vellum doilies
Coloring Tools – Water Painters, black embossing powder
Tools – Paper Trimmer, Simply Scored, Stamparatus, Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, Heat tool
Adhesive – Stampin’ SEAL, Stampin’ Dimensionals, liquid glue
