CAS-ual Fridays Stamps & Crafting of Hue Sponsorship Blog Hop & SALE!!

Pin It

HELLO!!

I'm here with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps for the Crafting of Hue Sponsorship and SALE!! 
That's right ALL Stencils for $5.00!! 
I've created 2 Cards for today to show how you can Create 2 Cards out of 1 Stenciled Image!! 
Here's what I've created for today!! 
I started by Spraying the back side of my Pawesome Stencil with some Therm O Web Pixie Spray!! Then I placed the stencil over my Cardstock and applied a thin layer of Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo using a Stencil Pal!! I removed the Stencil and let the Gel dry completely!! 
Once the Gel was completely Dry I cut a piece of Gina K Designs Fancy Foils in Radiant Red and ran it through my laminating Machine!! You can also run it through your die cutting machine!! 
Here's what it looks like after you run it through the laminating Machine!! Then SAVE that Negative piece because we'll use it to create our 2nd Card!! 
I placed the Negative Foil Piece onto a Deco Foil Toner Sheet that I cut to be the same Size as the Foil and ran it through my Laminating Machine!! Then removed the Film to reveal the Design!! SWOON!! I LOVE this part!! 
I picked a second color of Gina K Designs Fancy Foil in Sparkling Silver and cut a piece large enough to cover the Design!! Placed it down onto the Toner sheet and then ran it through my Laminating Machine!! I then added some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters for some Texture!! 
Here's the Finished Cards!!
For this Card I Stamped the I'm Sorry for your loss sentiment onto the bottom half of the Card and added some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters!! I fussy cut the Stenciled Foiled Toner Sheet and adhered it to the cardbase with Foam Tape!! I Stamped and Embossed the Heart Image from the Rainbow Bridge Stamp Set using Black Onyx Versa Fine Ink and WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! Then I Fussy Cut it out and Adhered it to the center of the Foiled Heart!!
For my Second Card I added some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters over the Card Panel and then I Fussy Cut the Stenciled and Foiled Heart and added it to the Card using some Foam Tape!! I Stamped and Embossed the Heart Image from the Rainbow Bridge Stamp Set using Black Onyx Versa Fine Ink and WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! Then I Fussy Cut it out and Adhered it to the center of the Foiled Heart!!
I LOVE the way these cards turned out and I hope you feel INSPIRED!!??

If Friends were Flowers with Newton's Nook Designs!!

Newton

Hello Crafty Friends!!


HAPPY FRIDAY!! I'm up on the Newton's Nook Blog today sharing a Card that I created using almost exclusively Die Cuts!! It's FUN sometimes to just use my Dies and some of my FAVORITE Products to make them come to life!! I started out by creating a Slimline Card Base 8 1/2 x 3 1/2!! I used the NEW Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set to cut the scalloped panel in the back, cut from Woodgrain Patterned Paper and then I inked the edges with some Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Ink!! Then I also Die Cut the panel in the front with the three portholes, from some Definition Patterned Paper using the same Die Set!! In between those two layers I added a stitched frame that was Die Cut from some TE Toffee Cardstock using the NEW Slimline Frames & Windows Die Set!! I inked the edges with some Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Ink!! Then I adhered all of the layers together using some iCraft Ultra Bond Adhesive!! 
Note: The popular NEW NND Slimline Die Sets are currently out of stock but they will have more in soon!! If you'd like to be notified when they are back in stock, you can just enter your email on the Slimline Frames and Portholes or the Slimline Frames and Windows product page!! THANKS!! 
I wanted to add some flowers to my card, so I used one of my FAVORITE Die Sets the Flower Trio Die Set to Die Cut Flowers and Leaves from some Therm O Web Deco Foil Flocking Sheets in Pink Carnation, Ruby Red and Rina K Designs Screamin' Green Neon Flock Sheets!! I inked the Edges of the Die Cuts using Work Lipstick, Aged Mahagony and Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Inks!! I think it really helps to make the Flocking Texture POP, plus it adds some much need dimension!! This step isn't necessary, but I really feel that it adds to the over all design!! For the Flower Centers I Die Cut from a Piece of Cardstock that I added some Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo to and let it Dry completely!! Then I ran it through my Die Cutting machine with a piece of Opal Deco Foil!! Then I Die Cut the Small Flowers for a STUNNING Iridescent Shine!! I wanted to add some Butterflies, so I stamped them using Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Ink and then added some WoW Ultra Shimmer Embossing Powder to add some Iridescent Sparkle using the Monarchs Stamp Set and cut out with the coordinating Monarchs Die Set!! SWOON!! I LOVE the way they make the Design come to LIFE!! Like looking at a real Flower Garden!! I added some TE Bits and Pieces Drip Drops to the Flower Centers using some iCraft Ultra Bond Adhesive and I LOVE the way that the Iridescent Sparkle ties together with the Iridescent Glitter of the Butterflies and the Iridescent Shine of the Flower Centers!! 
I Inked all of the Portholes with Speckled Egg Distress Ink For the Sentiment I LOVE adding WoW Glitter Embossing to help make one of the word POP!! In this case I chose the word Flowers!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment using some Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink Masking off the parts of the sentiment using some Therm O Web Purple Tape!! Then I Embossed with WoW Embossing Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! For the Flowers Word I Masked off the Stamp using Purple Tape and Stamped with Versa Mark Ink!! Then I Embossed with some Ruby Red Embossing Glitter!! The Embossing Glitter is a PERFECT match to the Ruby Red Flocked Flowers and creates a FUN Visual Triangle!! I LOVE the way it turned out and it was FUN to create a Card using almost ALL Dies!! 

THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and I hope you have a SAFE and BLESSED 4th of July Weekend!!

I Die Cut the Image out and then I Inked the background of my Card Panel with some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink!! I also Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment using some WoW Clear Gloss and Red Glitz Embossing Powders!! I LOVE adding a POP of Color to my sentiments to really make one of the Words POP!! Then I also added some of the same Red Glitz Embossing Powder to a Mini Red Clay Heart to help finish off the Design!! I added the Image with some Foam Tape just to the Bottom part of the Image to make the Swing seem more 3-D and then adhered the Panel to a Frames and Flags Scalloped Frame Die Cut from some TE Blue Raspberry Cardstock!! Some White Gel Pen Highlights and some Tonic Studios Shimmer Pen finish off the Card!!

For my Second Card I KNEW I wanted to create a Shaker Card using the NEW Roses Stamp Set and the NEW Slimline Frames & Portholes and the NEW Slimline Frames & Windows Die Set!! I started by Die Cutting the Slimline Dies to create my Cardbase and Shaker Window Frame!! Then I Stamped and Embossed the Images and Colored them in using Copic Markers!! I used Roses: R32, R35, R37 & R39  Greenery: G12, G14 & G17

Thank You by Larissa Heskett for Newton's Nook Designs using Roases Stamp Set, Slimline Frames & Windows and Slimlime Frames & Portholes #newtonsnook #newtonsnookdesigns #rosesstampset #slimlineframes
I Inked the Inside Square Windows with some of the NEW Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Ink and then used the NND Bubbly Stencil to add some Inked Dots for some texture!! I also added some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters and I LOVE how it turned out!! I Stamped and Embossed the Thank You Sentiment on the Top of the Middle Square using some Versa Mark Black Onyx Ink and some WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! Then I adhered the Colored and Die Cut Roses Images to the Squares and cutting off any of the excess!! I added some White Gel Pen Hightlights to the Roses and then I added some 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins, Mini Iridescent Heart Confetti and some Light Pink Iridescent Jewels to help add some contrast and make the Hightlights of the Roses POP!! I adhered the Acetate Window Frame over the top and my Shaker was finished!! (I've found that when making Shaker Cards I prefer to Die Cut several of the Frames from Cardstock and adhere them all together rather than mess with Foam Tape behind just one Die Cut Frame!! I think it makes the shaker more stable, but it can be done either way!!)
