I have added some new kits into the Card Making Kit section in the shop, check out for some AMAZING deals!
For this card I used the new Tim Holtz Stamp Platform, which is very easy to work with.
I stamped the Pick Up Truck (dies also available) stamp by Honeybee Stamps onto both a piece of Spectrum Noir card and masking paper and the cut the truck from the masking paper and applied overtop of the truck stamped on the card. Repeat these steps for the pumpkins.
For the sky I used a sponge applicator and applied Distress Oxide ink – Broken china, and layered Nuvo Embellishment Mousse – Mother of Pearl with the sponge and dried with my heat gun. To make the sky look even a little more “stormy” I sponged Distress Ink – Stormy Sky in spots on the sky and again, dried with the heat gun. (You can do the stormy bit now or at the end)
Once this is done you peel off the masking paper and can then colour the truck and pumpkins using Spectrum Noir Markers, and then the Spectrum Noir ColourBlend pencils to add even more shading and highlight depth.
The card is then mounted onto black card stock and then on top of silver mirror card that has been embossed (Embossing folder coming soon!), all these have then been mounted onto a card blank made from a sturdy white cardstock.
The Vellum sentiment is a new product to be released by Crafter’s Companion and the Dew Drops are by The Ton.
Hope you enjoy this card and feel free to message me with any questions!
I just had to make a card to show you how AMAZING these Create-A-Card dies are by Crafter’s Companion…
This particular Die set is called “Shine Bright” and depending on what paper you use can be versatile and not just for Christmas.
I have the range of these Dies currently on SALE, so make sure to add them to your card and make some beautiful stand out cards this year! 😊
For this card I started by using a circle Die and cutting out a large circle that would fit within the square card blank that I chose, I then inked my craft mat with Distress Oxides inks in: Wilted Violet, Broken China and Worn Lipstick, spritzed the ink with water and dabbed the circle cut out in to this. Next I used my heat gun to dry the ink while still spritzing with water to get the desired oxidation effect, set this aside.
Stamp out your Gorjuss girl stamp and the foxes, colour using Spectrum Noir Markers being sure to layer and shade. Once I finished colouring with the markers I went over the coloured images with my Pencils and further shaded and highlighted the images which make them “pop” even more.
I used the star stamps in the set to create a background, glued the circle on, and then stuck on the stamped images with foam squares.
For the sentiment I chose one from Jane’s Doodles, stamped in black and used clear Embossing powder over the top, added a few dew drops for effect and voila!
