Amazing grace.

Hello friends! Giovana here today showcasing a couple of sets from the new release August release.

I combined "Coral" and "Amazing grace", this card turned out super prettier, I think my pictures don't do justice, but I have a step by step process on how I did it.

  • Stamp the "Coral" image on a piece of watercolor paper using Versamark Watermark and your MISTI of course.

  • Add Bridal Embossing Tinsel over the image and heat set.

  • Apply Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Inks over the image.

  • Stamp the Amazing Grace stamp on a piece of clear vellum in StazOn Blue Hawaii ink, 

  • Create a banner from the vellum piece, die-cut a gold border and sew them together on a piece of Gold cardstock.

  • Add front panel to a cream cardstock card base. Embellish with blue and clear rhinestones.

Hope you like it a give it a try. In case you want to get new stamps (not the new release) and other special goodies, use my code to get a 10% off (yay)

Have a fantastic day!!

Amazing Rainbow

Happy Wednesday Junkies!

The Crafty Nurse here today sharing a rainbow of inspiration using the August release stamp, "Amazing Grace #SD776".

The background is created using Distress Dragging from the February 2007 Subscriber pages. Then using my MISTI, I stamped "Amazing Grace" using Versafine Black Onyx ink and heat embossed with clear powder.

We hope to see you in the Facebook group and participating in our monthly challenge over at the Design Team Blog. 

Happy Inking!!

Colorful Silhouettes

Hello folks. Beth Norman here.   I hope your week is going well.  This is a pre-post as I'm vacationing in the Maritimes (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Cape Breton).  I live out east for 14 years and haven't been back in 20 years.  Wow, where does the time go.  I'm reconnecting with friends.  The highlight of the trip is I managed to buy two tickets for the Oak Island tour.  Al and I have watched The Mysteries of Oak Island for four years and am thrilled that we obtained tickets for a tour of the area. I managed to secure two tickets before they sold out in 15 minutes.
Anyways, onto my card.  I used the Colorful Silhouettes technique from the August 2011 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter which you can see here.

Using Colorful Silhouettes technique, once again, I used Downtown Boy Kitty, Hats off, and Burlap stamps.

To receive 10% off your order you can use the code TJ10Beth.

The challenge is... Bleach Blocking!
You can see the original tutorial HERE

For this technique you will need:

white cardstock
dye inks (I used Ranger Distress inks)
plate (for bleach)
paper towel
ink blending tool (or sponge)

For my card I swiped dye ink pads. Hybrid and pigments inks do not work as well with this technique) across my cardstock. I used Ripe Persimmon, Seedless Preserves and Salty Ocean inks. I made diagonal lines but you can use any ink design you want for your project. Make sure you have good ink coverage on your cardstock.

I folded a paper towel on my plate and wet it with bleach. 

Dip your blending tool into the bleach and create a pattern by "stamping" the bleach.

I used my MISTI tool along the Let's Play Around stamp set with black ink to stamp my image and sentiment.

How about a discount?
