I’ve made a simple baby card with the new baby stamp set, Animal Crackers Kind Messages ( all links are aff. link), from Picket Fence Stamps. It is stamped in a pale ink to get a no-line effect. I then used the coordinating die to cut it out. Behind the area of the stamp I ink blended some pale blue, making sure it went all the way down to the corner I wanted the stamp to be close to. This was to give it a baby boy vibe. The matching sentiment is from the same stamp set.
There is a new Picket Fence Studios (this and following links are all affiliate links) release out today and guess what?! I’ve been playing with stencils, inks and paper glaze. So yeah, this is going to be a long post. You might as well grab a cuppa before scrolling through.
First up I have a simple card where I started off by using masking tape to leave a stripe on the side. First I ink blended with various pink oxides to create a gradient effect, and then I used the Pathways 6×6 stencil together with the Paper Glaze Luxe Pink Magnolia. I applied it with one of the tools from the Mixed Media Spatulas tools package and I love the effect.
I coloured up one of the stamps from the Animal Crackers Caring Friends stamp set and because I had a cup of tea in a cup with blue flowers on at the time I simply add to add that to this cup as well. Before popping on the card with foam tape I used one of the bigger sentiments from the same set and added it towards the bottom of the card. A few pretty sequins from the Vintage Bulbs sequin mix finished off the look this time.
You can see how the glaze is raised off the card base and that it is quite glittery.
Here you can see the great sparkle and shine in the glaze. Isn’t it pretty? I love it and I don’t even normally like adding sparkles to my cards! You can also see how beautiful the sequins are!
