And now let’s get started with the cards I made for you today.
This clean and simple card features the new Cloud no.9 stamp set and a bunch of Hybrid inks. I will show you how i swatched them and keep them in a 2×2″ page protector.
For the card itself I made a little tutorial for you to see the process.
I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and white heat embossed the cloud border and one of the sentiments.
Then i selected a rainbow of colours from the hybrid ink range: Plum Crazy, Bali Blue, Key Lime Pie, Lantern Yellow, In your face Orange, Kiss me Red. I used a little ink blending tool to apply the inks in rainbow order. To make it very gentle, i tapped off the access ink on a piece of scrap paper before applying it on my embossed piece. I used a light hand first with circular motion.
Whenever i was done with one colour, I added the next one, then went back with the previous colour to make the transition smooth.
After i was ready, I used a clean paper towel to wipe off the access ink which coloured my white embossing. It worked for me, but if you want to be absolutely sure that your sentiment is bright white, i suggest doing the ink blending first, drying it completely with a heat gun and only then add the white heat embossing.
I wanted to make the clouds pop more, so i pressed my ink cubes on an acrylic block and used a wet paintbrush to apply the ink on the clouds. This way my clouds got a bit more intense. I also used a clear shimmer pen to make them sparkly.
I added a thin black mat to my panel and adhered it to a white heavy weight card base. The only embellishment i used was 3 tiny clear sequins scattered around the sentiment.
I started with die cutting the gorgeous big rectangle die from this set 3 times from white cardstock and once from silver metallic cardstock. I kept the little eyelet pieces from the silver one in the die cut as much as i could and layered the white lace on top of them using liquid glue. I love how dimensional it got with this tiny trick! To place the escaped little pieces back where they belong to, i used a sticky jewel picker and a craft pick.
I used silver embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment and 2 cloud images from the above mentioned stamp set. I coloured them with pink glitter pens and also went over the embossed frame with the light pink glitter marker to add more sparkle to the design.
And now it is time to hop along and leave a comment so you could win!
