Crafty Collab - Fall and Sequins
Hello. Thank you for visiting my blog today. I am part of the Monthly Themed Hop Group. Each month we use up supplies that we have "squirreled away." The theme this month is Halloween/Fall and Sequins. I decided to use a stamp set from 2014 by Stampendous called "Cling PenPattern Leaves Set." I created a video on my YouTube channel that shows how I made these cards:
Here's the stamp set I found in my stash called PenPattern Leaves.
Look at the gorgeous patterns in these leaves:
To create the first card panel, I used distress oxide inks. I used my makeup blending brush from the dollar tree to blend circles with these colors: Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber, Candied Apple, Aged Mahogany, Vintage Photo and Twisted Citron.
As I was cleaning up the ink on my Tim Holtz Glass Media mat, I decided I would spray a little bit of water with my distress sprayer and ink smoosh another card panel onto the ink that was left behind to create a second background. I was pleased with how this panel looked and probably like this background more than the ink blended background.
Here's a photo of me creating the ink smooshed card panel:
Next, I started with the panel that was Ink smooshed. Making sure the panel was 100% dry (I used my heat tool). I then used my antistatic bag to dust the panels. I then placed the panel inside my MISTI stamp positioning tool and stamped the leaves using embossing ink. I heat embossed the leaves with gold embossing powder. I repeated the same process with the panel that was ink blended.
To finish the cards, I ink blended Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink onto a piece of white scrap paper, creating custom colored paper. I dried that ink blended paper with my heat tool. I pulled a sentiment from another stamp set, and stamped it twice onto the custom colored paper (once for each card). I used the same gold embossing powder on the sentiments. I used my corner rounder on the sentiment squares and popped the sentiments up with foam dots.
Using glossy accent as my glue, I added three orange sequins to the card panels. I then adhered the card panels onto A2 sized, top folding, landscape orientation, brown card bases.
Here's the card with the ink blended panel:
And here is the card with the ink smooshed background:
