Hello there! Do you like making greeting cards for your crafty friends? Studio Katia has a lot of wonderful products for such type of cards. I decided to make two cards featuring ARTSY TRIMMINGS stamp set. Both cards were made in the same way, so I will describe the process once.
I started working on the background first. I die cut out two ovals using NESTED OVALS dies and ink blended one with Wilted Violet and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Inks and the other with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink. I wanted to give my backgrounds a more original shape, so I cut a piece off the side of both ovals and got straight edges.
Next I wanted to add texture to the backgrounds. I used INK SPLASH STENCIL and Nuvo Glimmer Paste for that. I think this not only adds a fun sparkle to the background, but also highlights the crafty theme of the cards.
Next, I stamped the images from the ARTSY TRIMMINGS set in black ink and colored them with Copic markers. I used the matching ARTSY TRIMMINGS DIES to die cut the images.
From there, I layered the backgrounds onto light gray card bases and adhered my images using DOUBLE SIDED FOAM TAPE – BLACK. I stamped a part of the sentiments I wanted to add on the white panel, right at the straight edge of my ovals.
I made the second part of the sentiments using words: Create ans Crafty, which I die cut out of the black cardstock. These words are included in the coordinating die set.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
