Hello everyone... Helen is here today. We are half way through the August Collaboration Month with Rinea. Have you seen the amazing projects from Joy Clair Design Team and Rinea Design Team? If not yet, check them out on both blogs.
Today, I have 2 cards to share with you that I created using Joy Clair Stamp Sets, Rinea Foiled Papers, and Rinea Ghost Ink. I like to create my own backgrounds for cards and I am going to show you how easy to do this technique. And stamp set I used on my cards are the 2 new released Color By Faith Bible Journaling Stamp Sets: Heartfelt Sympathy and Blessed Harvest.
Ghost Ink is so magical! You just have to try it to know what I mean... So, to create backgrounds with Rinea Foiled Papers and Ghost Ink is very simple and quick. It is simply stamp, let it dry couple seconds, and wipe it off with baby wipes.
To create the background, I stamped one of the flowers from the Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set on the Gold side of the Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper using the Ghost Ink. I let it sit to dry for couple seconds and wiped the ink off the foiled paper using baby wipe.
I love how the printed image look like on this gold foiled paper. It looks like Batik pattern on fabric.
I used the background foiled paper I created on this first card. I cut the foiled paper using one of the Large Banner Dies Set and I added it on a white card using Art Glitter Adhesive Glue.
For the flower, I stamped the same flower image on a watercolor paper with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink Pad using Mini MISTI, dried the ink with craft heater and the I colored it with Leisure Arts Watercolor Pencils and waterbrush. I dried it again after watercoloring and then fussy cut it with micro-tip scissors.
I added both flower and sentiment strip on the card with 3D fun foam and Art Glitter Adhesive Glue.
For the second card, I used the Blessed Harvest Stamp Set. Also, I did the same step with the first card to create the background. I used the Earth Tones Foiled Paper. After the stamping and wiping off step, I trimmed the foiled paper to fit slightly smaller than the A2 White Card. I added it on the card with Art Glitter Adhesive Glue.
And the sentiment on this card, I stamped it on a white cardstock with VersaFine Clair Acorn Ink Pad and then I cut it with one of the Large Banner Die Set. I wrapped around some of the Natural Burlap Twine Ribbon on the banner and then added on the card with 3D fun foam and Art Glitter Adhesive Glue.
I hope you all inspired today by these two cards... Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!
