Sometimes one of the best things you can do is limit your supplies when creating. Not only is it less messy, but it can stretch your creativity, culminating in a collection of fully coordinated cards! In this 3 part video series I will show you how I used the same supplies to create 3 very different cards.
I used the same materials for all three cards in this series, but you could definitely sub in a different colour scheme if you’re not into pink 🙂
Stamp set: Majestic AF from The Ink Road
Distress Oxide ink pad: Picked Raspberry
Distress Oxide mini blending tool with foam pad
2”x 3¼“ stitched rectangle die
Sizzix Big Shot or similar die cutting machine
Acrylic block or stamping tool
White gel pen
Perfect Pearls ‘Perfect Pearl’powder in a small spray bottle with water (like a mini mister)
Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad
Ranger Archival Jet Black ink pad
XPress It Blending Card
Copic markers: Purples BV000, BV00, BV01 … Soft pink RV21, RV23, RV25 … Bright pink RV10, RV11, RV13 … 0 colourless blender (sketch or ciao)
Scissors + Trimmer
Double sided tape, 3mm
Double sided foam tape
Method: Card 3
1. Stamp the small unicorn on the right hand side of the diecut blending card (see photo for placement) using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Colour with copic markers. Add dotted mane detail with a white gel pen.
2. Stamp the greeting on the left hand side of the diecut blending card using Ranger Archival Jet Black ink.
3. Stamp the tip of the wing stamp, the flower stamp, circle stamp, dot stamp & sparkle stamp around the edge of the stamped & coloured rectangle die, taking care to avoid stamping over the unicorn and greeting (use Picked Raspberry Distress Ink).
4. Adhere the stamped rectangle diecut panel to the centre of the pink cardstock panel. Then adhere the pink cardstock panel to the centre of the mini card base.
5. Use the distress ink blending tool to apply a light border of Picked Raspberry Distress Ink around the edge of the mini card base front. Stamp some small accent stamps inside the card.
6. Place a large drop of pearlised water inside each stamped circle shape.
