My first project is a simple layered card to share with you that I created using the Chain Breaker stamp set and Valentine Background Builder stamp set. Making my card today, I used the Mini MISTI stamping tool and MISTI Creative Corners.
First, I created the background. I cut a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" white cardstock and put it on the Mini MISTI. I used on of the triangle ruler from the Creative Corners to create the diagonal background. I added the ruler on the Mini MISTI, and then I added the the hearts stamp from the Valentine Background Builder Stamp Set.
I stamped it with Memento Dew Drop Ink. Since I used background builder clear stamp, I have the black foam and laminated grid paper on the MISTI, too.
I moved the paper up to stamp the next row of the hearts to fill up the rest of the empty space. Next, I trimmed the panel to fit the stamped background. I added a wood grain patterned paper on a white card base, and then I added the stamped background on it at the center of the card with adhesive glue.
Next step, I worked on the sentiment. I stamped one of the sentiment from Chain Breaker stamp set on a white cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black ink pad. One of the best use of Mini MISTI is that you can stamp the image multiple times on the same spot to get crisp solid result. That's what I did with my sentiment. I added the stamp in the middle of the paper, picked it up with the lid, and stamped. First impression is okay, it looked like distressed sentiment. But then I stamped it again second time and I got the solid sentiment and that's I go for :)
I want to cut the sentiment with an oval die. It is kindda tricky. You can just eye-balling the position of the die in the center. But I used my MISTI to help me to do that. I had this printed grid plastic acetate that I put it right on top of the die, adjust the position, then I added post-it tape to hold the die on place. And then I run it through my die cutting machine. I added the die cut sentiment panel on the card with 3D foam tape.
I finished my card with some gold assortment sequins and some natural twine ribbon.
My second card today is a fun Magic Slider Card that I created using Washed By The Blood stamp set. I found couple YouTube videos and wanted to try. You can check out this video and this video. I used ODBD Double Stitched Rectangles Dies to create the window for this card.
To create the inside card, I cut out a white cardstock that fits inside the card for the slider panels, also I cut a piece of plastic acetate in the same size. I stamped the images with StazOn Jet Black which works both on cardstock and plastic acetate. For the duck, I made a mask and stamped the duck that will look like it sits on top of the soap bubbles :)
I colored the images with watercolor pencils and Tombow blender pen. Once they all ready, I put the card together following the steps in the YouTube video. Oh.. for the adhesive, double-sided tape works the best, but liquid adhesive also works. And check out how fun it is to see the colors show up when I pull the tab out :)
I hope you all can enjoy this card and tutorial today. Come back again tomorrow to see more inspiration projects from my teammates :) Thanks for being here today!
