Happy Friday, All!!
This week I’ve been featuring the Jingle All the Way stamp set and the Sleigh Ride Edgelits. Today is no exception.
The techniques I used on today’s card I saw in a video from another demonstrator, Anna Smith.
I actually recorded a video, but it didn’t turn out as well as I would like, so instead of sharing the video with you, I decided to just show you some snapshots on how I made this card.
Bermuda Bay card base:
8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
Shimmery White cardstock:
4 x 5 1/4
4 1/8 x 5 3/8, 4 x 2 7/8, 4 x 2 1/2, and 4 x 2
Night of Navy cardstock:
4 x 1 1/2
Stamp three different colors (Soft Sky, Bermuda Bay, Night of Navy) directly onto stamping block (Block F)
Spritz the stamped block with water
Stamp onto shimmery white cardstock
Dry with heat tool or let completely air dry
Squeeze some Tombow mono liquid glue into a container and add water. I used the Stampin’ Up Aqua painter to add my water. You want about 2/3 glue to 1/3 water.
Using your hand and the brush side of the aqua painter, splatter your stamped cardstock with the glue/water mixture.
Add glitter to the top of your splattered cardstock
And this is what you get
How cool is that?!?
To finish off the card, just add your edgelits cut from whisper white cardstock staggered to the bottom of the card. I cut the sleigh out twice, once from whisper white and once from night of navy and staggered the night of navy behind the whisper white giving it a shadow effect. I also popped the sleigh up with dimensionals
Here is another version of the cards using the exact same technique, but the colors came out a little lighter and softer than the one above.
I then tried it with just sponging the background instead of using the watercolor blocking technique. These are the three different versions together. All really beautiful, but also very different.
Which one do you like the best?
This was a really fun technique to play with. I hope you give it a try.
