My Scrap Bin Runneth over

I was trying to straighten up my crafting table and I was looking through my scrap giant pile bin.  I found three card-front sized pieces of embossed whisper white.  I also found some Mint Macaron die cuts.  I thought they would be great on the latest sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  I meant to use more of the die cuts but I glued everything down before I remembered to use them.

Masking tests

I follow probably hundreds of crafting blogs and quite a few YouTube channels and the latest item I’ve seen for coloring using masks is these new brushes.  I picked up a makeup brush from my local Walmart to see what it could do.

This is the brush I picked up:

Makeup brush

I used Blackberry Bliss ink, the brick mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks, and some pieces of Thick Whisper White Cardstock I had laying around.

First I tried the Stamping Sponges, they are good but you can see somewhat splotchy.  I would need to spend more time using them to get a more even coverage.

Next I used the Sponge Daubers, very deep color and a lot of pouncing to get even coverage.  I got tired of pouncing.

Last is the makeup brush.  I purposely did an ombre because I could.  I like how crisp this turned out.  I think I need to recommend to Stampin’ Up! to start carrying something like this for color blending.

I even made a card with the makeup brush piece.

Projects from Susan’s Meeting

I told you a little about uplines on Tuesday’s post.  Well, Susan had a meeting and invited all of her team members, she does this about three times a year.  She creates some of the most fantastic make & takes for us to do and this is what we created.

For this first card, we inked the Sale-a-Bration Country Floral Dynamic embossing folder with Sea Foam ink and embossed on Sea Foam cardstock.  I’ve seen this look forever but never tried it before.  Well, this sold me on the embossing folder, it’s just gorgeous!

The last card is a technique where Susan had us make a full card and a 3×4 card that we can store for reference.  The center of the first flower is colored in with the Early Espresso marker.  The center of the last card was done using a sponge dauber after the stamp was inked with Pool Party.
