Gerda Steiner Designs Lucky Duck & Distress Ink Background

Happy Hello and welcome to Friday! I have a card to share today that I created for 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store and a process video.

Have you SEEN there are new Distress Ink Oxides coming out!? Twelve new gorgeous, bright colors and I can't wait! Best part  -- you can PREORDER them from the store now so don't wait! I love the Oxide inks! They blend so well together and give such cool effects.


I'm using some colors from the original batch for my background today. I blended Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Faded Denim onto Neenah White Solar Cardstock and spritzed some water on it for the splotchy effect. Then, I cut my frames from it using my Single Stitched Rounded Rectangle die from MFT. 



For the little duck, I stamped two but actually only ended up using one. This is from the Lucky Duck set from Gerda Steiner Designs which can also be purchased through 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store. I stamped it with my Misti tool onto Neenah White Solar Cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink which is a copic friendly ink.


I colored my duck up with my copic markers and cut it out my Scan N Cut Machine.  Using my Misti tool again, I lined up my sentiment and stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto my middle layer. I adhered my card together with my Scotch Advanced Tap Glider and Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. 


To finish off  the card I added some sequins from Neat & Tangled Mermaid Tail Collection and Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops.

Camp Create - Watercolor Background


My Favorite Things did Camp Create teaching different techniques. One of them was creating a galaxy background using watercolors. I had never tried it with watercolor so I dug mine out and started to play. I was having fun so I experimented with colors.

Nuvo Glitter Paste - 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store

Happy Hello!!! I have a gorgeous card to share today for 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store. I have been doing a little playing with the Nuvo glitter paste - it is so stunning in person! It's really hard to capture it on camera but I did my best.


I started off by stamping my flower from Concord & 9th stamp You Are Here. I colored it with my copics markers and cut it out with my Scan N Cut machine. This flower would look stunning in any color! 



Next I started on my background. I adhered a striped stencil down to my cardstock with some painters tape so it doesn't slide out of place. Using a small spatula I started to spread a layer of the Nuvo Glitter paste onto my project. Once I was satisfied with the amount of glitter paste on my project, I removed the stencil and quickly washed off my spatula and stencil. Don't let it sit because the glitter  will stick to the stencil. 

I let the background sit for a few hours (actually 5 hours by the time I was able to get back to it lol) ... and started to put my project together.  My base is 5" x 5" so I trimmed the stencil piece down to 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" so there was a little border of white. I love how this glitter paste looks on the dark cardstock. It's almost iridescent! In the picture above, you can actually see the blue. I stamped my sentiment on a small strip of white cardstock, lined everything up and adhered together.

Bookmarks - The Greeting Farm

Happy Hello and Good Morning! I almost forgot to share these! My daughter and her friend asked for a new bookmark  (before school ended) so I created these fun ones! They were really quick to put together. I laminated both of them so they didn't get ruined from wear and tear.

Unfortunately, these were last minute creations so I do not have a complete supply list for you.



The background I created with my distress inks. My images I colored up with my copics and cut out with the Scan n Cut to add to the bookmark before laminating them. I used A Lil' Magic stamp set and Little Fairies stamp both from The Greeting Farm.

Thanks so much and Happy Monday!

Challenge #9 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store

It's time for a new monthly challenge over at 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store! 

Our Challenge is ....
ANYTHING GOES!
Please use something from the store for your chance to win $20.00 store credit!

Visit the 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store Challenge blog to find out the winners from the previous challenge.

The Challenge will end July 11, 2017 at 12pm EST so be sure to link your entry on the challenge page.

For my challenge project today I created a card with The Greeting Farm and created my won background.

I cut out a circle with a circle die out of acetate. Instead of using the circle I used the negative piece. I laid that over my card and then placed my Tim Holtz dotted background stencil over the top of the negative piece. Using my distress ink, I applied a layer of ink. I continued this process around my card, cleaning the stencil in between each so I don't mix colors.

For my sentiment, I used Happy Birthday from the All Cats set from Gerda Steiner Designs. I heat embossing it onto black cardstock using Nuvo White Embossing powder.

 Once my image was colored up, I cut it out with my Scan n Cut machine and popped it up with foam squares.
