CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Fun with Stencils

Welcome to the CTMH Technique Blog Hop 


For this Hop I am going to create a Stencil from the CTMH Cricut Cartridge Artbooking! These are so fun to create, and there are endless possibilities! 

If you are coming from Darlys Recker' Blog you are on the right track. Let's go ahead and get started!

First we will start with the supplies used - 

  • CTMH Cricut Cartridge Artbooking
  • White Daisy Card Stock
  • 3D Foam Tape
  • Exclusicve Inks: Lagoon and Sapphire also matching cardstock
  • Stencil mask from a big box store - you can also use a cereal box - this is something I had in my stash. :)
  • Sponge daubers or blending tool
Here is my stencil created using a background from the exclusive CTMH Cricut Cartridge Artbooking. This was intended to be a background for a 12x12 layout, however I resized this, and it was cut at 5.5 x 4.25. I laid this on a lagoon cardstock so it would photograph well. This particular stencil kit is adhesive back and really nice when placed on your project. 

I applied ink in lagoon all over my stencil. I wiped off the ink from the stencil, lifted it from my project, rotated it, and set it back down slightly off set. I then applied the sapphire ink. The Inks were applied with sponge daubers, I must say this stencil was rough and 'ate' the daubers up pretty good. So be prepared for that possibility. 

Without further ado - here are my finished cards:

This first card, I didn't pull the ink all they through the card. I absolutely love this look.

The second card, I decided to cover the card completely with ink. I am not as in love with this card, but it is still stunning to me. 

For my sentiment, I die cut 'thanks' 6 times in White Daisy, then adhered them together. I love the result of stacking these!  Here are some side views of these sentiments. 

I really hope you enjoyed my stencil technique. now hop on over to Janna Gray's Blog



Block Stamping

If you LOVE watching Jennifer McGuire, raise your hand!

AHHHH me too! She is creative in taking tried and true techniques and re-vamping them into beautiful artwork.

So she recently posted her take on the block stamping. I knew immediately that my Little Dreamer Stamp set was PERFECT for re-creating this technique.

Check out these cute cards!

Lets dig into how the background and images came together.

Back Ground: 
Ink up your block, I used a 2x2, 2x3 and a 3x3 block. The colors can be what ever your heart desires, play around to what strikes your fancy.
Next spritz your block and OR paper with Water....mind you I did NOT use watercolor paper. I use what I had on hand, white Dasiy Card stock. - you won't be able to saturate your white daisy card stock like you would water color paper - it worked just fine. 
If you flip your block and sort of drop it... you will get a really neat splatter effect on the outside of the block (and possibly anything in a 2 foot radius - LOL) you can also simply just press down. 
If you are using watercolor paper you will want to leave the block om the paper for a few minutes. If you are using regular card stock, you can remove it immediately. Below is my visual guide - I learn WAY faster and better when I have a visual...so here ya go...

For the images:

I dusted my background paper with my DIY static remover, then stamped my Little Dreamer unicorn image in White Daisy Pigment ink. Honestly - I thought the white daisy pigment ink with the white extra fine embossing powder would give this DEEP white image. Really the versa mark did way better with the embossing powder. I am not sure if it was user error, or just the way it goes...LOL

Okay and here are my finished cards...

This one I stamped the Unicorn Horn in the versa mark ink, then used the silver ranger extra fine embossing powder. Again before embossing I used my DIY static remover...this helps control where the embossing powder will stick. 

The background in this one is my favorite. The unicorns eyes have been enhanced  with the Marvy journaling pen. Each background has been hit with the clear shimmer pen (wait did you know that you can add re-inker the clear shimmer pen to get what ever color shimmer you want?!?!) Cool right!

See her pretty tail isn't all the way embossed - that's what happens when you don't wait for you paper to dry all the way...I am so impatient. LOL 

The sentiment stamp says " Always be yourself, unless you can be a unicorn, then be a unicorn" 
By stamping the entire stamp, then wiping away ink from words I did not want to appear, the sentiment becomes something way more. 

 Thank you so much for stopping by.

CTMH Technique Blog Hop Shake It Up

Welcome to this month's Technique Blog Hop, featuring Shake it Up! 

I am going to create a Shaker Card, because they are so fun to create, and give! Today I am focusing on a completely clear, easy and FAST shaker Card!

If you are coming from Melissa's Blog you are on the right track. Let's go ahead and get started!

First we will start with the supplies used - 

Now on to the project -

Using my stamp set and thin cuts, I stamped out an umbrella, beach chair, lemonade glass and sentiment.
I created an ombre effect on my umbrella seen above with lagoon, glacier and sapphire inks.The Beach chair is stamped in Lagoon and Desert Sand. Next my stamped images were adhered to the outside of a 4x6 Flip Flap.

I adhered two black sequins to the inside of the Flap-flap, behind the sentiment. I am using these as placeholders for my gift card. this way when the shaker card is shaken,the gift card stays in place.

Next I filled my flip flap with sequins from my stash. Before removing the adhesive strip I cut the ends of this area down slightly to fit snugly inside the flip flap. To cover up the adhesive, I added some shimmer trim. 

I really enjoyed working with the Flip Flaps and am excited to see what the other ladies have created for their Shake it Up project. Please consider leaving a comment before heading to Annemarie's Blog to see her Shake It Up creation.
