Hello and happy Thursday! Today I´m stopping by to share one more mixed media card with you. I again did the background using Gelli Arts gelli plate with my stencil designs.
I first did the pattern with the gel plate and a stencil design of mine using red acrylic paint on white paper. For the next step I took orange toned Distress Ink and inked the white areas with it. It´s a nicer contrast for the eye and the strong red/white tones.
For the flower and petals I used a STAMPlorations stamp set on a residue piece of that gelli printed paper and stamped the images with black ink. For finishing touches I added a clear sticker (also by STAMPlorations) and a red button into the middle of the flower. The card is still flat enough to fit into an envelope :).
Hello and happy Monday lovelies!!! Long time no see here on my blog… I´ve been busy drawing faces on my Instagram account lately, so I have been therefore neglecting my blog abit. But there is a card share for today on the programm 🙂 ..
This card I done using a Gelli Arts gel plate with red acrylic paint. It resulted in a flower image in red and white. I then just simply inked the white areas with pink Distress Ink to change the colour. For the flowers I used the residue strips of the same paper and stamped and fussy cut the flowers and leaves.
For the sentiment I simply used a Clear Sticker by STAMPlorations. And for finishing touches I am working on reducing my button stash abit, so a button in the middle of the flower it was!
And the card is still very flat, so it´s perfect for mailing too. I hope you have a lovely week! Happy crafting, xxx, Sanna
Hello and happy Sunday! I´d love to share a fun card idea with you that will always result in unique backgrounds that will never ever be the same!
Just grab a pile of stencils and your gel plate and create backgrounds with them! Take pastel colours for a softer look or go crazy with colour, like I did here! A red and yellow acrylic paint combination is a bold one :).
And then after finishing a few backgrounds, just grab some stamps and clear stickers (or rub-ons) and finish off your card. For this one I used my Peacock Feathers stencil with the Bloom Doodles stamp set and Hey Sunshine! clear stickers.
And while you grab your gel plate (mine is by Gelli Arts, by the way), make sure you make several prints at one sitting. That way you will have a bigger pile of prints ready and waiting for you, when you need a quick and fun card or when card-creating inspiration hits you.
By picking more toned down colours the overall look of the card totally changes. So just go with the colours you (or the card recipient) like :).
Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here today with a special share. I am so excited to be able to share my 4th set of stencil designs with you!! A huge thank you to Shery for making all this possible and believing in me and my designs. Without her, none of this would be possible. So thank you again, Shery! I am so happy to be part of the STAMPlorations family.
Early this spring (before the pandemic hit the world) I had this set
ready for a release, but then the pandemic happened and everything got
postponed abit. But better late than never! So today I´m happy to be
able to share a little video with all of you, featuring the new designs.
I wanted to do this earlier, but since shipping was not working between
the US and Europe at all, it was not possible unti now. One parcel was
even retourned back to Shery and never reached me. Finally, a few weeks
ago the stencils arrived, so I am now able to share some stencil
goodness with you.
And to give you a better idea on the new designs, I´ve recorded a video featuring every single design. I hope you enjoy it!
I have been having so much fun with the stencils, so before I leave you today, I would like to show you just a few examples I created.
Also, be sure to follow the stencil challenges, as I will be sharing more projects, created using the new stencil line, throughout this fall with you. I would love to hear what you think about the new stencils, so leave a comment over at the STAMPLORATIONS BLOG to the original post and tell which is your favorite and what you would use it for, it might just be, that you can win your favorite stencil 😉 !!!
Wishing you all a fabulous day and happy stenciling! Stay safe and take care, Sanna
I first took a piece of white cardstock, die cut that in 1/3 and 2/3 sized pieces using the Holiday Garlands 2 die cut set. That way I had an upper piece, a middle garland part and a lower piece. Next I misted the upper part with purple, dark red, aubergine and black spray ink colors (all by Tattered Angels). After that I added white acrylic paint splatters onto that background. It now looks like the universe/space. I really like this look!!!
I then took the lower piece and attached Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto it and poured golden Silk Microfine Glitter onto that piece and polished that with my finger to make it all shiny and stick to the adhesive (here is a video how to do that). When the glitter piece was finished, all I had to do was to adhere all pieces onto their places with paper glue. Next I stamped a sentiment with black ink and inked the background with pink Distress Ink. I then fussy cut the stamped image along the edges. Finally I added some half pearls onto the garland for decoration.
This card I pretty clean and simple looking even though it takes quite a lot of media to make it :). I hope you will find this months challenge interesting and join in with us! Who does not love gold???!!! Hope to see you at MMCC this month, lovelies!!!
