Birthday Cards Using The New February Release!

Hi everyone! I hope you are doing extremely well today. I have some fun Birthday Cards today using some fabulous stencils from A Colorful Life Designs February Release. No Stamping involved. A fun and easy way to mass produce some Birthday Cards. I will have supplies and a coupon listed down below.

This was my first card I made. I used the New Stencils Simple Happy Birthday and Birthday Celebration Stencils. I first sprayed some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Spray over my Arteza Cold Press 110lb. Watercolor Paper. When my panel was dry, I then ink blended using the Birthday Celebration Stencil with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink, Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink, and Spiced Marmalade. I used a paint brush with a little bit of water to move the color of ink around while my stencil was in place still. The Squeezed Lemonade blended into my Spiced Marmalade, but I still like how it looks. When my panel was fully dried, I cut it out with a double stitched rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs.

I used the Simple Happy Birthday Stencil for my Sentiment on the same Arteza cardstock with Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide ink. I cut out a banner sentiment die using a banner die from MFT Stamps Blueprints 27. I just cut it to fit. I placed my panel onto a A2 card base and added my sentiment banner with foam tape. I then decorated with some gems to match.

Here is my second card that I made. I decided to make another card only my cardstock had only a few splatters of Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Spray from my first card. I still did the same ink blending with the same ink colors and using a wet paintbrush for this panel. I cut out it out it with the same rectangle die. I ink blended my sentiment using the Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink using some leftover cardstock. It also had some splatters of the Peacock Feather Distress Oxide ink on it.

I cut the sentiment using the banner die again, but I left it the normal length this time. I added it to my panel with foam tape. I added my panel to a A2 card base and added some pink heart sprinkles and enamel dots. I hope you like both cards. They were so fun and really easy to make using these Beautiful Birthday Stencils. I hope you check out the New Release here.

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.
