Penny Black: Watercolor Designed Stamps

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Uncategorized

Hi!  It is Lisa here today and I have a floral card to share with you.  I am sure many of you have seen the Penny Black stamps that resemble watercolored images once they are stamped, and I find them to be terrific!  The specific stamp that I have used for today’s project is called Magnolia Rhapsody, while this specific set is on back order there are many of the newest release sets that give the same results.

To create my card I started by stamping the Magnolia image with various Tombow Dual Brush Markers.  When you are wanting to add multiple layers of colors to one image I highly recommend using a MISTI.  This will save you so much time and just make everything easier!  After I had all of my colors added I used the blender pen that came in my Tombow Marker Set to blend the colors together, and to take away any splotchy areas.  You could also use a paintbrush and clean water for blending.

Next, I added my sentiment from the Mama Elephant Wishing You Stamp Set with Lawn Fawn ink in Deep Sea.  I then went around the borders of the card with Distress Ink in Broken China, and finished the card off with clear sequins.

I hope you are joining us in our latest challenge, as well as make sure you get entered into our latest giveaway!

Piñata Kind of Day…

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi!  It’s Lisa here and today I have a cute CAS card to share with you that is sure to brighten anyones day.  When I first saw the Piñata Squidgy Set by Stampingbella I just adored the little girls face.  As I looked at the set more, I fell in love with the sentiment too!

Isn’t she the cutest?!  To create my card I started by stamping the girl and piñata images onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock.  I LOVE this cardstock… the thickness is amazing, and your Spectrum Noir Markers blend beautifully on it!  Any who, I colored these images in with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers.  I have to brag a little about these markers too as I really like the thin nib on one end that allows you to get into tiny areas easily (and they are on sale, and I mean big time sale!).  Once they were completely colored I fussy cut them out and set them to the side.  Next, I worked on my frame by diecutting some yellow and blue watercolored patterned paper by Lawn Fawn with the My Favorite Things Stax Stitched Mini Scallop Oval.  I then stamped the piñata image again, but onto the blue patterned paper and without coloring it in.  I used Tombow Mono Glue to adhere my colored and cut images onto my card front, and I finished the card off my stamping the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you are able to join us in our newest challenge, and don’t forget to check out the awesome giveaway that is happening now!

Love You To The Moon And Back…

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello!  It is Lisa here with you today and I have a sweet little card to share with you that I’ve created with the newest WPlus9 release set called Little Dreamers

The minute I saw this set I knew I just had to have it!  And if I was going to get this set then I was going to need the Stardust Stamp Set too.  After all look at how perfect the sweep of stars look along the top and bottom!

To create this card I started by stamping the bear first as he was going to sitting on the moon.  I then masked him off and stamped the moon.  I decided to use the emboss resist technique for my stars and sentiment. So after they were stamped and embossed in clear embossing powder I went over the background with a mix of Distress Oxide Inks (Wilted Violet and Broken China) and Distress Inks (Faded Jeans and Black Soot).

I removed the masks and colored the moon and bear in with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers.

And all of this was done on Neenah Solar White Cardstock.  I love this cardstock in both the 80# weight and the 110#.  It is sturdy and smooth and hold alcohol markers very well.

Inlaid Die Cutting: A Treat For Your Eyes!

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi!  It is Lisa here today and I have a fun card that not only looks beautiful, but can really play tricks on your eyes, check it out…

With the use of a technique called Inlaid Die Cutting I was able to add my sentiment in the middle of my image, while keeping the entire image intact!  It’s so cool, and I love the results every time I do it.  The trick to this technique is making sure you keep all of the little pieces that go back into the die cut.  I keep a piece of washi tape close by to attach those smaller cuts to, so that I can continue to work on the rest of my card without accidentally knocking one off.

Now the specific stamp set I used is by Winnie and Walter and is called Mini Scenery: Bed of Roses, and is currently out of stock, sorry!  But you are still able to put your name on the back order list if you wish, or there are other ways to achieve this same look.  Simply mask off a rectangle area, or any shape you wish, stamp the area with a background stamp and voila.  I then colored the image in with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers (Lilac HB1, Hydrangea HB2, Fruit Pink PP5, Denim TB3).  I love the dreamy color blend I was able to create with these markers.  Finally, I diecut the thanks by Lawn Fawn and adhered the word with foam adhesive over the negative cut.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you’ll give this technique a try!

Happy Crafting!
