That being said, keep on reading the blog as I’d love to share with you the cards that I’ve created featuring products from both companies.
For the first example I inked it up a piece Bristol Smooth card stock with Cracked Pistachio, and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxides. Once, the inks were blended, and dried I stamped on top of it using the Spiral Roses Background, and clear embossing ink because I was going to do some heat embossing. Then, I applied on top of the stamping Under the Sea glitter embossing powder, and I heat set it.
After the heat setting I trimmed all the edges of card panel, and as soon as all the edges were cut I adhered the backed of it with double sided tape to an A2 size white side folding card base. To finish the card off I white heat embossed one of the sentiments from the Beaucoup Bouquet Sentiments stamp set with Opaque Bright White embossing powder over a piece of velum which I trimmed down, and adhered on the lower part of the card. As a finishing touch I adhered a big piece of Metallic Gold thread which I had wrapped a round a few times underneath the sentiments along with a few clear sequins.
For the second card I gradually ink blended the card panel with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink, as you can see I started from the bottom to the top creating an Ombre effect. Once, the ink blending was dry I used the same stamp bacground to stamp the whole card panel with clear embossing ink. Then I applied Bounding Powder on top of it, and heat seat it with the heat tool.
Soon after the heat setting was done, I used the foiling machine to foil the card panel with WOW Fab Foil Gold, and as soon as the card panel was foiled I trimmed all the edges. As you can see I repeated the same step as the first example by white embossing a sentiment from the same stamp set in a piece of vellum. However, for this example I decided to adhere the sentiment vertically right in the center of the card panel. And to finish the card off I wrapped around metallic gold thread which I finished with a bow. Finally, I adhered the card panel to the white card base with foam mounting tape.
For the last example I kept the same idea as the previous example by foiling the card panel. However, I used Peacock Feather instead of Cracked Pistachio..
As for the sentiment, I decided to white heat embossing one of the sentiment from the same stamp set on a piece of Teal color card stock to complement the ink color as you can see in the picture above.
Yay, you made it to the end! I hope you’ve had a great time here with me, as well as I hope that you continue hopping along with us. Don’t forget to comment at each stop along the way, down below you’ll find the supply list for all the products used in this blog.
