Shaving Cream Background Technique-Playful Pals Teddy Bear

Shaving Cream Background Technique Pyramid Pals Bear

Combine the soft swirls of the Shaving Cream Background Technique with the stamp set Playful Pals and coordinating Pyramid Pals Framelits Dies, and you have everything you need to create a sweet "hello baby" card!

The Shaving Cream Background Technique is one of my all-time favorites.

All you need is some shaving cream and ink refills! 

For full instructions on how to do this fun technique, please visit HERE

I am headed out of town in a few days to attend my niece's baby shower.  She is due in August, but because both she and her husband are in the Air Force and have several classes coming up, it was decided that the baby shower needed to be now to accommodate their busy schedules.  She recently learned the sex of the baby but is not going to share it with us until the shower.  So, I needed to make a baby card in neutral colors. 

Perfect for the Shaving Cream Background Technique!

The color of ink refills for this card used were Marina Mist, Flirty Flamingo, Wild Wasabi and Smoky Slate.  I used 3-4 drops of the first 3 colors but only drop of the Smoky Slate.  I didn't want it to be a dominate color.  I just wanted to add a little contrast and bring in the colors of the bear and card base.  As always with the Shaving Cream Background Technique, you don't want to use too many colors or mix them together too much or they might become muddy.

To complete the bear, I used various parts of the Playful Pals stamp set stamped on Smoky Slate card stock using Basic Gray ink.  I  cut the pieces out using the coordinating Pyramid Pals Framelits Dies.  Then, it was just a matter of assembling the pieces.  I used Dimensionals to pop up the ears, nose and bow tie.  The bow tie was cut out of a scrap piece of shaving cream background paper.

Pencil Eraser Art-Jar Full of Candy

 

Stamping With Pencil Erasers
Nothing beats a jar filled with colorful candy!  The candy in this jar was created using a pencil eraser! 

This is an easy and fun technique using an everyday item!

I bet you have a pencil with an eraser sitting on your desk or near your crafting table. So, pick it up, and let's start crafting!

Here's how:

I began by stamping the jar image from the stamp set Jar of Love on a piece of Whisper White card stock using Early Espresso ink.

I then dabbed my pencil eraser into Melon Mambo ink and stamped inside the jar image several times.
I cleaned the eraser by swiping it on my worksheet, then moved onto the next color which was Cucumber Crush.

Pencil Eraser Art Close Up

I continued adding more colors,

Pencil Eraser Art closeup

and more colors, until the jar was filled in with an assortment of bright candies!

Pencil Eraser Art close up

I stamped the greeting "Sweet" from the retired set Sweet Shapes alongside the jar in Melon Mambo ink.  I stamped the image for the jar top onto a piece of scrap Whisper White card stock using Early Espresso ink and then cut it out using the coordinating Everyday Jars Framelit die.  Before adhering the top to the jar, I wrapped a piece of Island Indigo Baker's Twine around the front, securing it in the back.  I then added another piece of baker's twine over it and tied a simple knot.

I matted the jar to a piece of Melon Mambo card stock, then added it to the Early Espresso card base.  Once the card was put together, I added some clear Wink of Stella for a little shimmer.

So, get out your pencil and create some eraser art!  The possibilities are endless!

Supplies Used:

Stamp Sets: Jar of Love, Sweet Shapes

Ink: Early Espresso, Melon Mambo, Cucumber Crush, Tempting Turquoise, Crumb Cake, Elegant Eggplant, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Blushing Bride, Peekaboo Peach, Crushed Curry

Paper: Early Espresso, Melon Mambo, Whisper White

Definitely Dahlia Meets the Emboss Resist Technique Part 2

Emboss Resist TechniqueWow! 

That's what happens when the bold Definitely Dahlia stamp is paired with the Emboss Resist Technique!

(to see another idea using the Definitely Dahlia paired with the Emboss Resist Technique, please visit my post HERE)

For this card, I swiped my Embossing Buddy over the Whisper White card front.  I stamped the Definitely Dahlia using Versamark and then heat embossed it using my heat tool and white embossing powder.  I sponged Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral and Pumpkin Pie inks over the embossed images.  I then buffed the images with a paper towel, removing the ink and making the flowers pop.   The ink will resist where the images have been embossed.

I stamped the greeting from Another Thank You using Early Espresso ink after I heat embossed the flowers, but before sponging on the inks.  I wanted the greeting in place so I could lightly sponge around it. 

This card has a fall feel to it.  By switching up the colors, it could easily be made into a spring or summer themed card.

The  Double Hexagon Embossing folder can be found in the upcoming Occasions Catalog from Stampin' Up! (available January 4). 

I love the texture and rich color!

I paired the embossed background with flowers and leaves cut out of Basic Black card stock using Botanical Builder and Christmas Pines Framelits Dies.

The greeting comes from Good Greetings (retired) which I heat embossed onto a scrap piece of copper foil paper using black embossing powder.

This is a cool technique, and the possibilities are endless with all the available embossing folders.

Iris Folded Snow Globe

Iris Fold Snow Globe Iris Folded Snow Globe!

It's been awhile since I've done any iris folding. Not sure why since it is one of my all-time paper crafting techniques!

I did a quick search on Pinterest, and found a really fun snow globe pattern from iris-folding.com

The pattern can be found here.

It is basically a circle pattern so it is super simple.

(For more Iris Folding ideas and a video how to tutorial, please visit my Iris Folding Page.)

I first embossed my Mint Macaron card front using my Big Shot and Gently Falling Embossing Folder.  I then punched out the circle using my 2 1/2" circle punch. 

I laid the card front over the pattern I printed out from Iris-Folding.com (remember,  place the front side down-you'll be working from the back), and started laying out my designer paper (Blooms and Bliss cut into 1/2" strips).

The "iris" is Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper with Island Indigo ink sponged on to make a custom color to match the colors in the designer paper and the snow globe. 

(Creating your custom color glimmer paper is easy-see instruction here).

The trees are pieces found in the November Wonderful Winterland Paper Pumpkin Kit.  In the kit, they are white so I simply stamped the coordinating image from the stamp set using Mint Macaron ink.  They are popped up using Dimensionals.

The ring around the snow globe was cut out of Island Indigo card stock using my Big Shot and 2 layers of circle framelits.

I didn't care for the base of the snow globe in the pattern, so I cut a triangle free hand out of Island Indigo card stock.

Since I'm pretty much done with Christmas cards, I wanted this to be a winter wishes, Happy New Year or even a thank you card.

I searched through my stamps and found this small "hello" and scribble that I knew would work with my 7/8" and 1 1/4" scallop circle punches.  Layering the 2 punches would fit perfectly on the front of the snow globe.  

To complete the card, I added a few rhinestones for bling and mounted it to a Whisper White card base.

This Iris Folded Snow Globe was a great way to revisit one of my favorite paper crafting techniques!

 

Supplies Used:

Stamp Sets: Pennant Parade and Kindness Matters (both retired), Wonderful Winterland

Ink: Island Indigo, Mint Macaron

Paper: Whisper White, Mint Macaron, Island Indigo, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer, Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper

Accessories: Big Shot, Softly Falling Embossing Folder, Circles Framelits, 2 1/2" circle, 7/8" scallop circle and 1 1/4" scallop circle punches, Wonderful Winterland Paper Pumpkin Kit, sponge, Dimensionals, rhinestones

Tie Dye Background Santa Part 2

Tie Dye Santa

Here's one more tie dye background paired with Santa cut out of Night of Navy card stock using the Big Shot and Detailed Santa Thinlits Die.

See my Melon Mambo/Tempting Turquoise die dye Santa here

Colors for the background are Marina Mist, Island Indigo and Wisteria Wonder.  Inks were dabbed onto my clear block "E", spritzed with water, then stamped onto a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I let it sit for a few seconds, then lifted it up, and I was left with a tie dye background.

After Santa was cut out, the greeting was heat embossed using white embossing powder, then popped up on the background using Dimensionals.

What colors will you use for your tie dye Santa?

Supplies Used:

Stamp Set: Greetings from Santa

Ink: Marina Mist, Island Indigo, Wisteria Wonder, Versamark

Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy

Accessories: Big Shot, Detailed Santa Thinlits Die, Embossing Buddy, heat tool, white embossing powder,clear block "E", spritzer bottle with water,  Dimensionals, Fine Tip Glue

Flurry of Wishes-Emboss Resist Meets Clear-Block Stamping

Flurry of Wishes 010

Here's another take on the Emboss Resist Technique. 

This card combines the Emboss Resist and Clear Block stamping techniques!

I first created by clear block background by dabbing Island Indigo, Wisteria Wonder and Night of Navy inks onto my clear block "E".  I spritzed it with water so the inks would run and pool and then stamped it onto my Whisper White card front.  I let it sit on the paper for a few seconds.  I then removed the block and let the paper dry completely. 

(It is important to make sure the paper is totally dry before moving onto the next embossing step.  If you don't, when you add the white embossing powder and emboss, your background may turn white wear the paper was wet.)

Next, I stamped the snowflakes from Flurry of Wishes using Versamark and heat embossed them with white embossing powder.  I sponged on a little extra ink around the embossed images, then buffed them off with a tissue.  This makes the embossed images pop.

I added rhinestones that had been colored with a purple sharpie to the centers of each snowflake.  I also added some clear Wink of Stella to the background for a little extra shimmer.

Supplies Used:

Stamp Set: Flurry of Wishes

Ink: Island Indigo, Wisteria Wonder, Night of Navy

Paper: Night of Navy, Whisper White

Accessories: Embossing Buddy, heat tool, white embossing powder, clear block "E", Stampin' Spritzer with water, sponge, rhinestones, purple sharpie

Emboss Resist Flurry of Wishes

Flurry of Wishes 009

One of my favorite stamping techniques is Emboss Resist. 

It is one of those WOW techniques, but it is so simple to do!

For this card, I started by stamping the snowflakes from Flurry of Wishes onto my Whisper White card front using Versamark ink and heat embossed the images using white embossing powder.  Then, I simply added Island Indigo, Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder inks over the embossed images.  For the centers of the snowflakes, I used a sponge dauber and Island Indigo.  For the rest of the background, I used a sponge to add Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder.  Once I was done, I buffed the embossed images with a tissue.  This removes the ink from the embossing and makes the image really pop!

Supplies Used:

Stamp Set: Flurry of Wishes

Ink: Island Indigo, Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Versamark

Paper: Whisper White, Island Indigo

Accessories: Embossing Buddy, heat tool, white embossing powder, Sponge Dauber, sponge, rhinestones

Tie Dye Happy Ornament-Clear Block Stamping

Happy ornament 008

 I'm really liking the fun Happy Ornament stamp found in the SU! Holiday Catalog!  

This stamp is perfect for water coloring, but I decided to change it up a little bit by creating a clear block water color tie dye background.

I inked up my clear block "E" by patting on Emerald Envy, Mint Macaron, Delightful Dijon and Cherry Cobbler inks.  I spritzed the block with water until the ink began to pool and run and then stamped it on my water color paper card front.  I let it set for a minute or two so the ink would absorb into the paper, lifted it up and set the paper away to dry.  After it dried, I stamped the ornament using black archival ink.  I colored in the bow using a black Sharpie pen and then added a rhinestone that I colored using a red Sharpie pen.

The color possibilities are endless!

Sheltering Tree and Watercolor Paper Towel Background

 

Sheltering Tree 103

The background above came about as I cleaned up the inside of my Woodland embossing folder using a paper towel after creating this card shared for the Nacho Average June Blog Hop.

Sheltering Tree 096

After the clean up, the paper towel looked similar to this one which was used for cleanup in another project:

Sheltering Tree 109

The paper towel is 2 ply, so I removed one of the plys, glued it to a piece of card stock using a glue stick and then stamped on it.

Easy, Easy!

I love the texture it gives to the card.  And I always like to recycle and reuse!

 

Supplies Used:

Stamp Set: Sheltering Tree

Ink: various that were originally swiped on the inside of the embossing folder, then spritzed with water.  Early Espresso and Emerald Envy for the trunk and tree.

Paper: Soft Suede, scrap Whisper White

Accessories: paper towel, glue stick

Casology Sunshine Challenge-Clear Block Kinda Eclectic Watercolor Background

 

Here is another card that I created using the CASology challenge theme "sunshine" as my inspiration.

Kinda Eclectic 018

I used one of my favorite stamping techniques for this card: acrylic block stamping.

Because I wanted the watercolor background to be contained to a rectangle shape, I first created a mask out of regular computer paper using my paper trimmer. I cut the mask the same size as my "E" clear block.

I laid the mask over my watercolor paper card front, securing it with a little temporary adhesive so it wouldn't shift while I added my color and did my stamping.  I dabbed my Island Indigo, Pool Party, Tangelo Twist , Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry stampin' spots (from various Paper Pumpkin kits) onto my "E" clear block. I then spritzed the block lightly with water so the inks began to pool and run.  I then placed the block through the mask onto the watercolor paper and let it set for a few seconds, allowing the ink to absorb into the watercolor paper.  I removed the block and let the paper dry. 

Kinda Eclectic 022

Once it had dried completely, I removed the mask, swiped my Embossing Buddy over the watercolor background, stamped the sun image from Kinda Eclectic using Versamark ink, and then heat embossed it with Early Espresso embossing powder.  I then stamped and embossed my greeting from Ray of Sunshine.

 

Stamp Sets: Kinda Eclectic, Ray of Sunshine (retired)

Casology Sunshine Challenge-Kinda Eclectic Tie Dye

This week's Casology challenge is Sunshine!

CAS sunshine

I thought I'd play along:

Kinda Eclectic 025

When I read what this week's challenge was, I immediately knew I wanted to do a tie dye background. 

To create the tie dye effect, I combined two of my favorite stamping techniques: watercolor and clear-block backgrounds.

To start, I dabbed Island Indigo, Pool Party, Tangelo Twist, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry Stampin' Spots (from various Paper Pumpkin kits) onto my "E" clear block.  I then spritzed the block lightly with water so the inks began to pool and run.  I then simply stamped the block onto a piece of watercolor paper and let it set for a few seconds, allowing the ink to absorb into the watercolor paper.  I removed the block and let the paper dry.

Once dry, I cut the paper down to match the sun from Kinda Eclectic.  I then stamped the sun using Versamark ink and then heat embossed it with Early Espresso embossing powder.

I  thought the paper was dry enough, but it actually wasn't.  You can tell by the little flecks of embossing powder scattered here and there, especially in the upper right hand corner.  That's ok as I think it adds a little bit of interest.

To complete the card, I added the tie dye background to a Whisper White card base and stamped and embossed my greeting from Ray of Sunshine.

Clear Block Stamping Lovely as a Tree

Lovely as a Tree 078

For this card, I used one of my all-time favorite stamping techniques: clear block stamping.

I tapped Marina Mist, Island Indigo and Cucumber Crush inks onto my clear block "H".  I lightly spritzed the block with water so the ink would pool and then stamped the block onto my Whisper White card front.  I let the block sit for a few seconds, then lifted it up and voila, I had a pretty watercolor background.

I let the ink dry and then stamped the trees from Lovely as a Tree over the background using Soft Suede ink. 

For a little shimmer (hard to see in the photo), I brushed on some clear Wink of Stella.

The greeting is from Holiday and Wishes which is retired.  I kept the set and use it often as I really like the simple happy birthday.

Lovely as a Tree-Masked and Sponged Background

We were fooled again! 

We thought spring had arrived here in the mountains of southern Colorado.  After a few days of warmth and sunshine, we are now experiencing cool, misty/rainy/snowy weather. 

This card reminds me of the scenery as I look out my living room window. 

Wintery  looking!

Lovely as a Tree 074

To create this card, I first created a mask for the moon by punching out a post-it-note using my 1 3/4" circle punch.  I laid the circle mask on my Very Vanilla card front and sponged around it using Soft Suede ink.  I then removed the mask.  I stamped the pine trees from the stamp set Lovely as a Tree using Soft Suede ink, first at full strength and then again without reinking. I then stamped the trees again using Black Archival ink, again at full strength, then again without reinking.  I added a torn strip of Soft Suede card stock to the bottom and tied on a piece of  Black Baker's Twine.

Easy, easy!

Create a palette of ink in the lid of an ink pad by squeezing the top of the closed pad.  Open the pad, and there should be a spot of ink in the lid.  Pick up the color from the lid using an Aqua Painter or wet brush and color over the embossed image.  For this card, I used a combination of Soft Suede and Cajun Craze inks.
