Catch-up Part 2

More of my samples from our Cardmaking Club,
these are all from this year (most recent first).

Playing with Stencils

1 - Vaseline and Distress inks 

Thank you to Ali Reeve for this fabulous technique.
Lightly dab through the mask with Vaseline on some Cut and Dry foam, blend over with Distress Inks and then stamp the verse over the top.

 Verse by Clarity Stamps, stencil by Pronty

 2 - Texture Paste

Place the stencil over some patterned paper and tape down with low tack masking tape. Make sure each edge is masked (I also masked off part of the stencil as I only wanted one cage)
Spread texture paste through the stencil thinly with a pallet knife.
Remove tape and stencil (wash immediately).
Once the paste is dry, mount onto navy card then a white card blank.
The bird is stamped onto the same patterned paper, coloured in with Promarkers and cut out.
(The bird cage stencil is from The Crafters Workshop, the bird stamp is by Hobby Art,
alphabet by Docrafts Forever Friends)

Flags and bunting   

Horseshoe stamp is by Lili of the Valley

Stamping into UTEE

Owl and foliage stamps from Stamps Away


I stamped the owl onto some patterned paper (from Robot Rust digikit) and highlighted the eyes, beak and talons with a white gel pen.

Colour some mount board with brown Distress Ink and then cover with Versamark ink. Sprinkle with UTEE and heat (do this twice). After the second layer sprinkle metallic embossing powders around the edges and heat again. Do one final layer of Versamark/UTEE and heat until you can see it moving. While it is still runny, stamp into it with a foliage stamp inked with up silver ink.

 This is one is a similar technique but I have coloured in the seahorse with Promarkers.
For the 'seaweed' going up the left hand side I've used the Tattered Leaves die again.
To colour them, dab blue and yellow Distress Inks onto your craft mat, spritz with water and then swirl the leaves around in it. When dry, dab Distress Stickles over them with your finger.

The seahorse and seaweed stamps are by Sheena Douglass.

Teepee cards

Thank you to Quick Cards Made Easy magazine for the instructions

The shape just screams out 'pyramid', doesn't it?
For the brick pattern I used an Inkylicious stamp with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
I don't know who the stamp is by, I bought it second-hand without the packaging.

Fishing Boy stamp by Lili of the Valley
 Greeting stamps by Marion Emberson, flower stamp from Inkadinkado,
papers by Prima

That's all folks (for now). I'm off to have my tea.
Hmmm, Chinese take-away sounds very tempting
