Lawn Fawn and IMAGINE Crafts Pigment Generations Card

IMG_2609-0

I was so excited to get to test out some awesome Tsukineko products that I’ve never tried before! A long time ago I saw a video by Shari Carroll where she used water and her Memento Luxe Inks to create a softer 2nd generation. I love getting more out of my inks so I definitely wanted to try a variation of this technique, and this card is definitely an ode to her.

I used some trees from Lawn Fawn’s Snow Day Stamp Set as well as the Love Letter and Northern Pine Memento Luxe Inks. Instead of using water to spritz the stamp, I used Tsukineko’s gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz. This made my second generation not only soft, but sparkly and metallic!

To bring in more gold, I used the Delicata Golden Glitz Ink and a few more stamps from the Snow Day Set to add some fun elements.

To make my card more like Shari’s, I cut my card front into three pieces, glued down the center, put a piece of vellum in between the two remaining sides, and popped those up with some foam tape.

I still wanted more gold! 🙂  I took my Delicata Golden Glitz Ink pad and put it directly onto the edges of my card base. When I put my popped up piece over top, it masks the rough inside edges.

For the sentiment, I used Lawn Fawn’s Scripty Joy Lawn Cut. I did something a little different here, but I’ll definately use it again and again. We all know that for more intricate die cuts, it’s easier to cut it a few times and layer those pieces together – rather than trying to cut tiny pieces of foam tape. Here, I cut out three of the “joy’s” from the 110# Neenah Cardstock and covered them in the three inks I used on this card.

When I layered them, you could see all the colors from the side! This would look so cool in any colors!

I hope you liked this card and will try out some of the products Tsukineko has to offer! Thank you so much for reading and have a great day!

Emboss-Resist “Congrats” Card

20140109-121215.jpg

This is a super quick post that I wanted to share to demonstrate a technique that a lot of people have been talking about: “Emboss-resist.”

20140109-121241.jpg

This technique allows people to some-what turn their stamps inside-out. The image that would normally be colorful from your ink choice becomes the negative space, allowing the engraved part of your stamp to be inked, painted, or embellished in many different ways.

To accomplish this, I chose a beautiful background stamp, inked it with VersaMark Ink, stamped it, and heat embossed it with some White Hero Arts Embossing Powder. This could have been done with any color of pigment ink and clear embossing powder, but I wanted to use distress inks to add color to this card.

After being embossed, the stamped image will resist ink and only the negative-spaces of the stamp will take the Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I used a rainbow of colors. I then mounted that panel on a sheet of orange foil paper from my DCWV Foil Stack, white heat-embossed my sentiment on the same foil paper, and added some Maya Road Wood Button Embellishments.
