Spotlight Coloring – Make a Card Monday #274

Happy Monday!

Today I decided to try what I’m calling “spotlight coloring.” It’s basically coloring images within a shape with bright colors, and then leaving the images outside the shape a neutral color…

For my card, I used the Baked With Love stamp set from Lawn Fawn (it’s sold out everywhere at the moment–so sorry!). The spotlight coloring technique could be used with any outline stamps you might have.

Hope you enjoy today’s video. :)

Rainbow Stamping with Pigment Inks – Make a Card Monday #273

Happy Monday, all! Today I experimented with rainbow pigment ink stamping using the new Paper Smooches Luminous Spring stamp set. :)

The rainbow effect on the balloon stamping was achieved by rolling one side of the balloon stamp into different ink colors. Super easy and I love the effect.

As expected, a small amount of the each ink color is transferred to the second ink pad. However, it’s simple to clean up with a paper towel or by dabbing the ink pads on scratch paper to “clean up.”

To finished the card, I added the letters for “Love You” on the balloons with a white pen, drew on the strings, and adhered the stamped piece to a black card base. I think I might make some more cards like this but increase the number of balloons so that it reads “Happy B-day”. :)

Masking & DIY Stencil Birthday Cards – Make a Card Monday #272

Happy Monday, all!

Last week Lawn Fawn released some fun new products. So today I have a video for you showing two cards made using new stamps, dies, embellishments, and inks from their new release. :)

I created a stripe background for my first card by applying 1/4″ masking tape across white cardstock. I then added four of the new Lawn Fawn inks (see the ink colors below in the Supplies) using a Mini Round Blending Tool. The inks are formulated to dry evenly on cardstock Sven if the inked stripes looked a bit splotchy at first, they dried beautifully.

After white heat embossing a greeting from the Scripty Sayings stamp set, I added wood veneer stars and sequins.

For my second card, I created some DIY stencils using the Party Balloon dies and window plastic (acetate) from Lifestyle Crafts. You could definitely use masking paper instead of acetate to create the stencils, but I wanted to save the DIY stencils and I knew acetate would be more durable.

I blended on the same colors of ink using the DIY stencil and drew on the balloon strings with a black marker. The greeting stripe was diecut using the Happy Birthday Border die. I also put Stick It Adhesive on the cardstock before die cutting to make it easier to adhere to the card.

I hope you enjoy today’s cards and video! Thanks for stopping by! :)
