So Many Shells Stampin' Up!

About Today's Card

First, I watercolored a soft Wild Wasabi background, then I splattered a bit of Chocolate Chip ink with my brush.

The shells and sand dollar were stamped with the So Many Shells Stamp set which also made the Stampin' Up! Last Chance or Retiring List.  The So Many Shells is a 2-Step Stamp set.  I stamped the first layer of the Conch with Powder Pink Ink and the Second layer with Crumb Cake Ink.  The Sand dollar was stamped with Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip Ink and the shells were stamped with Powder Pink and Chocolate Chip Ink.

I made the frame with the Layering Squares dies and my Big Shot.  The wavy background was embossed with the Dynamic Impressions Emboss Folder.

Ink Smooshing Technique & A Little Wild

Ink Smooshing Technique

Hello Friends,

Today, I going to share a simple Card Making Technique called Ink Smooshing and the A Little Wild Stamp set.  I love cute animal stamps, but the A Little Wild stamp set does double duty because it shares the backside too.  You can cut them out together to make adorable tags or cut them apart and use them separately.


Ink Smooshing Technique

 

For this technique I smooshed Melon Mambo and Night of Navy Ink onto my Teflon Craft mat and spritzed with water.  Then, I laid my glossy card stock face down on the ink and smooshed.  Then I spritzed again and I dried with a heat tool to move the ink around a bit.  Here are 2 very different looks with the same Technique.


A Little Wild Stampin' Up! Card Idea

For this first card, I completely covered my glossy  card stock.  I dried the first layer, then went back and added a bit more Melon Mambo Ink.

For the second Smooshed Ink Technique card, I went light on the ink for a completely different look.  Which look do you like best?


A Little Wild Stampin' Up! Card Idea

Here's a close up of the smooshing technique.  You will multiple Ink pads, a water spritzer and glossy paper.  For this card I used the gorgeous Springtime Foil paper which is free during Sale-a-bration (now through March 31, 30218) with a $50 purchase. 

 Splitcoast Stampers Color ChallengeFor this week's Splitcoast Stampers Color challenge, Barb chose Melon Mambo, Night o Navy and Tangerine Tango.  It really is a sharp color combo.  And for dessert add a little bling.   Is used the Melon Mambo and Night of Navy for my Ink Smooshing Technique and I colored the Lion's mane Tangerine Tango.  For Bling, I used the Springtime Foil Paper and my Wink of Stella Pen for my lion's mane.

Barn Door Wedding Slider Card


Love this soft Barn Door Wedding Card!  The Card Base is Soft Sky Card Stock.  I embossed the front with the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I stamped on Wood Textures Designer Paper to make the door.  Because designer paper is thinner, I backed my door with a piece of card stock.  I borrowed the sentiments from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set.

Inks and Papers for card above are Soft Sky, Whisper White, Basic Black Card Stock; Wood Textures Designer; Paper, Marina Mist, Powder Pink and Crumb Cake Ink.

Dragon Sliding Barn Door Card

I simply couldn't resist adding a dragon to at least one of my Barn Door Slider Cards.  I colored him with Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends and a Emerald Envy marker.  Then, I made him shine with a few swipes of my Wink of Stella Brush.  For a castle look, I embossed with the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and made a Wood Textures Door.

Inks and Papers for card above are Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Emerald Envy, Whisper White Card Stock; Wood Textures Designer Paper; Tuxedo Black Momento Ink; Emerald Envy, Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach Marker;  Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends.

Barn Door Wedding Slider Card

 This card is similar to my original Barn Door Card.  I went with Basic Gray instead of Crumb Cake to compliment my Cherry Cobbler Barn Siding.  To make the rough siding look, I stamped with the Hardwood Background stamp.  The Anniversary sentiments are from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set.  It says, "Love isn't in the Falling.  It's in the Staying There,  Happy Anniversary".  

Inks and Papers for card above are Basic Black, Basic Gray, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White Card Stock;  Basic Gray, Crumb Cake, Powder Pink, Early Espresso Ink.

Primitive Barn Door Slider Card

To make a primitive looking Barn door card I focused on Textured Wood Designer Paper and Early Espresso Card Stock.  Because designer paper is thinner than card stock, I backed the Wood Texture designer paper with card stock.

Inks and Papers for card above are Basic Black, Early Espresso, Smoky Slate, Whisper White Card Stock; Wood Textures Designer Paper; Early Espresso, Tranquil Tide, Dapper Denim Ink.
