Fairy Stamper Hugs - Sivelle and the Full Moon

 Sivelle is chasing butterflies under the light of the full moon while several little fairies flutter along. Stamps used by Tracy Shultz, the Hopeful Crafter, include: Sivelle (FHS-098), Moon Tree (FHS-054), Full Moons (FHS-053), Condo Dwellers (FHS-060) and Condo Dwellers 2 (FHS-108) and are available at https://fairystamper.com/collections/fairy-hugs-stamps


To create this card, I followed these steps:
1. Ink blended Distress Oxide inks to create the background. The colors were (from top to bottom): Faded Jeans, Stormy Skies, Blueprint Sketch and Dusty Concord.
2. Sprayed several droplets of water onto the card panel. Distress Oxides ink will react with water. Then sprayed a layer of Dazzle Shimmering Bliss Spray on top.
3. Stamped all images with Versafine Claire Nocturne Ink and used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut them out. 
4. Ink blended using the following Distress Oxide inks: Antique Linen on the Moon; Vintage Photo on the Tree; and Squeezed Lemonade on the tiny fairies. 
5. Colored the wings of the Fairy Sivelle, the tiny butterflies and the skirt of the fairy using Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens. Colored her hair with Pentel Sparkle Pop Gold Pen.
6. Glued all the images to make my scene on the ink blended card panel.

Zen Sea Turtle, Ocean Sentiments and Circular Motion Stencil

 Hello, Tracy Shultz, The Hopeful Crafter, here to share two cards that feature stamps from the June 2021 Technique Junkies ne release. There are so many wonderful ocean themed cards in this release. I paired the Zen Sea Turtle stamp with the Ocean Frame Sentiments, Set of 5: to create several cards:


I stamped the Zen Sea Turtle using Versafine Clair and Catherine Pooler Ink (Lime Rickey). I heat embossed the turtle with clear embossing powder and cut the turtle with my scan and cut machine. I colored the Circular Motion stencil from A Colorful Life Designs with Catherine Pooler Inks (Tranquil and Cove Blue). I stamped one of the sentiments from the Ocean Frame Sentiments Set of 5 on a piece of blue shimmer cardstock and then trimmed the sentiment with the Deckle Trimmer. I layered the stenciled background on a piece of turquoise glitter card stock. I used foam tape to pop both the turtle and the sentiment up off the card base. These layers I adhered to an A2 top folding landscape card base. For my second card I followed the same steps but used different ink colors for the turtle and the stencil, a different sentiment and green glitter card stock as a mat base.

Technique Junkies New Release - June 2021 - Sail Away

Hello, Tracy Shultz, The Hopeful Crafter here with a hop for Technique Junkies. Today is the Technique Junkies new release for June 2021. These stamps have a nautical theme. Scroll down for the picture below of all the new stamps. Don't forget, all of the new release stamps are 15% off through June 8th. You can use my 10% off coupon TJ10Tracy for anything else ordered.

There is also a Gotta Have it all offer for those who wish to order all the stamps from the June release at a discounted price.

I created a YouTube Video on how I made my card:

To create my card, I followed these steps:
1. I stamped the Stormy Sea Border with Versamark Ink onto a piece of 4" x 5.25" piece of card stock. I used Underwater Embossing Powder from Hero Arts to heat emboss the image.
2. I stamped the Sailboat Line Sketch with Versamark Ink then used black embossing powder from Hero Arts to emboss the image.    
3. I colored the sailboat with dual art markers, a water based brush tip marker. 
4. I trimmed the sailboat image and placed it in the middle of scene, using foam tape to pop the sail boat up off the paper. 
5. I used the Cloud Edger Stencil by A Colorful Life Designs and Tumbled Glass distress ink to blend clouds in the background.  I did use a circle mask in the top left corner for the sun. I used Catherine Pooler Tiki Torch ink to color the circle (using a domed foam blender from Scrapbook.com)
6. I stamped the sentiment Sail Away With Me in the top right corner using Catherine Pooler Midnight Archival Ink.
7. I layered the finished panel onto a piece of blue glitter paper and then to an A2 card base. 

I created two additional cards with these two stamps:
