My older stamps needed some love from me so I used them to make this card for Simon Says Stamp’s Monday Challenge of winter stamping. Love the font from warm wishes…works well with the current trend of handwritten looking sentiments. Provided some shading to the sentiment with my Copic pen. Happy crafting! Supplies listed below.
- Cardstock: Soft Stone (Papertrey); white (Georgia Pacific)
- Ink: Real Red (Stampin Up), Versamark
- Stamps: Four Framed Snowflakes (Hero Arts); sentiment (Stampin Up)
- Accessories: white embossing powder; stardust stickles, Copic
One of my resolutions this year was to use more of my unused cardstock, patterned paper, and stamps. So I decided to at least work on my cardstock and ribbon…Stampin Up’s sage shadow and narrow grosgrain ribbon. It’s a beautiful color! I really miss it….and I have lots of it! So now I need to use more of it. I made this birthday card for my aunt and hope to get it in the mail tomorrow. Another resolution checked….send my cards out instead of hoarding them. All supplies are listed at the bottom of the post.
Hope you are having a blissful day! Thanks for stopping by….
- Cardstock: Sage Shadow (SU); Spring Rain (PTI)
- Ink: Versamark
- Stamps: Hydrangea (Hero Arts); Celebrate In Style (A Muse Studio)
- Accessories: Eggplant grosgrain ribbon (SU); Copics
Since I had so much playing with acrylic paint for the most recent Papercrafts Magazine submission call I wanted to show you another direction you can go with acrylic paint. I made a candle holder with acrylic paint and a large background stamp. It was pretty easy….you just need a steady hand so that the stamp impression doesn’t get smudged. Acrylic paint on glass is also very forgiving since you can also wash it off and start over. If you want to make sure it stays on glass you will need to either seal it with a sealer or it says to let it set for 21 days. I would go the sealer route personally since I have washed paint off when I wasn’t thinking about it on other projects.
Here’s the project. Clean your candle holder well before you start and make sure it’s completely dry. Put paint on your background stamp with either a brush or sponge (light touch on the paint works better). Then roll the candle holder over the stamp that lays face up on the table. Let it dry. Simple and fun….give it a try.
