Trick Or Treat!

Hi everyone! The Not 2 Shabby Shop has a New Digital Release today! This cute Halloween Gnome, so precious. I first printed him out on Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock. I then colored him in with my Copic Markers. I used a pencil to guide me some lines on his hat. I then fussy cut him out, so easy to do.

I wanted a fun background for him and I love how it came out. I hope you do too! I used some black heavy weight cardstock with Shaded Lilac Distress Paint, Dina Wakley Heather Media Gloss Spray, Dina Wakley Tangerine Gloss Spray, Picket Fence Distress Spray Stain. I then added some Silver Gilding flakes. So fun. I used some Gina K Designs white pigment ink with Circle Tone Mixed Media Stencil from Brutus Monroe, placed randomly on my panel. I cut this panel when dry with a Hero Arts Wood Frame Infinity Dies. I also ran it through again with orange cardstock. I stamped and heat embossed with Wow Opaque White Powder and Versamark ink on black cardstock using a sentiment from Taylored Expressions Mini Strips Halloween. I cut it out with the coordinating dies. I added my Gnome and sentiment with foam strips and added it to my panel. My panel was then added to a A2 black card base. I hope you like it.

Cards, Mixed Media, and Glosses

Hi everyone! I have a card video today over on my YouTube Channel. You can watch down below or on HD on my channel.

I first started out playing with these Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays. I cut a sheet of Black heavy weight cardstock in half. I began spraying my cardstock. I didn’t want it to get warped too bad so I grabbed my Make Art Stay-tion to hold my cardstock with magnets.

When I was done with the sprays. I grabbed some yellow acrylic paint from my stash and used a paint brush to flick yellow paint and then I just painted on some paint. I watched Maria Willis who is Card Bomb on YouTube use it with Gilding flakes on a video. She is my insiration for my cards. So, I began pushing those flakes into the paint. It takes a bit to dry. You can probably use your heat tool. You can also try burnishing it in to your paper with a bone folder but I think your fingers work best. I then inked up a background stamp from Simon Says Stamp called Stained Glass Background with Gina K Designs White Pigment ink. Just the corner and placed it randomly on my paper. When my background was dry I cut it to slightly smaller than a A2 and added foam to the back before adding them to white card bases.

Next I added some premade foiled sentiments using Pinkfresh Studio and my spellbinders Hot Glimmer Foil System. I just layered my sentiments with kraft heavy weight cardstock. I just run the sentiments die through my diecutting machine and glue them so they are a little bit thicker. Lastly, I added gold pearls. I hope you like my cards and enjoyed my video.
