Hey, everyone! My family spent this past week at the lake, so it’s super fitting that this month’s theme from Scrapping for Less is camping and outdoors!
The Winston’s Lake House stamp set from Newton’s Nook Designs is SO cute! There are so many cute scene building stamps! I almost went with a lake scene – but the little bear and cabin images just spoke to me!
This card came together super quickly with just a bit of masking! I stamped my sentiment first and then the bear image. When masking it’s important to remember to stamp whatever image you want to be in front first! I stamped the bear image onto masking paper and cut it out with scissors and placed it over my original stamped image and stamped my lake house. When I removed the masking paper it looks like the lake house is set behind the little bear! I used my Spectrum Noir Triblend markers to color them in.
I didn’t to much to embellish the card – just some gems and clear glitter! Check out my video below!
Hey, everyone! It’s Lynnea! Are you ever just in the mood to stamp? No frills, no fuss – just stamping? I LOVE silhouette stamps for this reason! And today I have a trio of cards that took me no time at all to make, but I was able to spice them up a bit with some multi color inking! And I have a video at the end of this post to show you just what I mean!
I used the Vitamin Sea stamp set from Echo Park for each card in the set, but I changed up the images and colors to make them interesting!
You KNOW I just HAD to make a yellow submarine! Haha! I started each card with a gray sentiment. I think gray is an underrated color for sentiments. I frequently find myself reaching for black for sentiments, but the gray makes an impact in its own way, too! To add some dimension to my stamping I started by stamping the submarine with a yellow ink using my MISTI. Without moving the stamp I inked up the bottom portion of the submarine with a darker yellow ink and used a towel to dab away some of the ink so there wouldn’t be a harsh line of ink. I did the same thing with the crab using two colors of red ink.
I repeated the same process for my second card. I stamped my sentiment first in the center of my card using gray ink. Welllll …. I tried to stamp it in the center. I was about a quarter of an inch to the right of center haha! I lined up the fish with the sentiment and stamped a light orange first and then a dark ink second using a towel to dab off some ink to create a more seamless “blend” of ink. Once all my stamping was done I chopped off a quarter of an inch from the left of my card so that the images would appear centered. That makes this card 4 inches wide by 5 1/2 inches tall. I kind of like it!
I decided to do three colors of ink for my last card. I used a light pink for the body of the jellyfish, blue for the middle, and ending with some lavender at the bottom of the tentacles. I made sure to use a towel and dab away ink before each stamping. Be sure to watch the video below to see my multi inking technique!
Hey, everyone! It’s Lynnea and I created a set of one layer cards perfect for Spring using the Warm Spring Wishes stamp set from Gina K Designs!
I created my own stencil to use for these cards. It was so simple to do – I just took a piece of stencil plastic and die cut a circle from the center! I actually used the negative piece – the center circle – and adhered it to the center of my cards and used two colors of Distress Oxide Sprays over the top – Cracked Pistachio and Iced Spruce.
The basic layout of all four of my cards is the same. I stamped the leaf image from the Gina K Designs Warm Spring Wishes stamp set repeatedly around my masked circle and stamped a butterfly in the center. I used Distress Oxide Inks for all of my stamping except for the sentiment – I used Versafine Onyx Black ink for that.
I hope you’ll check out my video below for the tutorial! Thanks for stopping by!
Hi! Today I’m showing you two ways to use masking to create an *almost* one layer card! I used the Graduation Boy stamp set from Dreamland Crafts and you can get yours at the Scrapping for Less store!
I started by stamping the boy from the Graduation Boy stamp set onto a piece of watercolor cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I heat embossed it so that I could do some watercoloring with my Sakura Koi watercolor set. Once my watercoloring was done I heat set the paint completely. I used a Versamarker (Versamark ink in pen form) and colored all over the colored image and embossed it with clear powder. I repeated the process again so that I would have more dimension to my clear embossing. This is one of my favorite ways to emboss! There’s no need to fussy cut a mask and no wait for drying time!
I used a piece of Inkadinkado masking paper and sketched a simple hill shape and cut along my sketch line. I used the top piece to mask off the upper portion of my card so that the hill section of my cardstock is exposed. I used two colors of green Distress Ink – dark at the top and lighter at the bottom. Then I dried the ink with my heat gun and added the other portion of my masking paper to the cardstock so that the green hill is covered.
I grabbed the Cloud stencil from Pink & Main and some Distress Ink and created my cloudy background. It’s super easy since I didn’t have to mask off my colored image – I just blended the ink right across my heat embossed image! I used a stitched rectangle die to cut down my panel and adhered it to a card base! You can watch my process video below!
