Circle Mask Ink Blended Background with Kristina Werner

Hello, all! Kristina Werner here. In today’s video, I show how I created a fun, colorful background using the Circle Masks stencil set.

I ink blended using the three smaller circle masks and five colors of Simon ink: Hollyhock, Hot Mama, Sunshine, Scuba, and Blue Jay. I made sure to overlap each circle and continue adding more and more circles until the entire background was filled.

To keep the background as the focus, I used the A2 Thin Frames die set to cut a white frame, then I stamped and white embossed the “Get Well Soon” greeting from the Healing Hugs stamp set. I also stamped and embossed the small hearts in the stamp set around the greeting.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the video!

Crafty with Caly: Do What it Cakes

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! Please join me in welcoming back special guest Caly Person in a bi-monthly edition of our Crafty with Caly blog series showcasing our brand new Do What it Cakes stamp and die set! Be sure to read on and watch the video for all the details! Enjoy!

Hello, Friends! It’s Caly with you today, sharing a wedding card using the Do What It Cakes set. This is a versatile set for all occasions, but I had to color those pretty flowers and decided to make a wedding cake.

I love that the tiers can be stamped and die-cut separately– it gives the finished card more dimension (if you want) and layers so nicely to give height to the cake. I’ve got a video to share my process! You can watch it here:

WATCH THE VIDEO:

Weddings always include shine and sparkle – so I tried to achieve gold using both Copic markers on the cake stand and ink on the sentiment medallion. Be sure to check out the video to see how that’s done!

Copic colors used:
Cake: R000, RV10, RV91, RV93
Stand: Y00, YR21, YR24
Flowers:
R83, R85, R89
Foliage: G24, G28, G03, G09

Simon Says Stamp Ink colors used: Lemon Chiffon, Catkin

To give my card lots of texture, I used the Blossom Field Embossing Folder over the Fog cardstock background. It reminded me of lace! Then for my sentiment, I used a craft knife to add small slits to the sides to feed some twine through it for another element of interest.

To finish my card, I embellished it with some iridescent jewels. I hope you like it! This set could be used to create a very similar card for a birthday theme too! I can’t wait to see what others create with this set!

Thanks for stopping by and spending some time with me today! ~Caly

Doodling with Debby: Make time to play

Hi friends! Happy Monday! Please join me in welcoming back special monthly guest Debby Hughes in our Doodling with Debby blog feature. Read on and be sure to watch the video for more details! Enjoy!

Hello, it’s Debby here. When the new Prize Ribbon Distress color was released from Tim Holtz and I received a parcel of the new products from Simon Says Stamp to use I was obviously delighted! When I get new products, the temptation can be to use them in a format that I’m familiar with. However, I’ve been encouraging myself recently to let loose and simply play with my supplies. Scrap pieces of card, sketchbooks, anything that releases me from creating a finished project. 

These explorations are things I don’t share with anyone and I have found that freedom to explore enlightening. I am much happier to try new products, new techniques, new colours and simply have fun creating a big old mess a lot of the time but learning and saving some of those moments for future reference. When the Prize Ribbon colour came out I saw a beautiful Specimen Book created by Paula Cheney which you must check out. The cover of the book drew me in with the beautiful blues and greens and I looked up the colours Paula had used. Now these colours, Prize Ribbon, Mermaid Lagoon and Crushed Olive aren’t in my usual muted palette wheelhouse but with Paula’s inspiration to encourage me I dived in with a play session and turned on the camera to share with you.

STEP BY STEP HOW TO

  • Place a piece of Hot-Pressed Arches Watercolour Card in the Misti and treat with antistatic powder.
  • Stamp the Delicate Outline Flowers set from Simon Says Stamp in Simon Says Stamp clear embossing ink.
  • Sprinkle with Simon Says Stamp White Embossing Powder and heat set.
  • Squidge Prize Ribbon, Mermaid Lagoon and Crushed Olive ink onto a craft mat, spritz with water and dunk the card into the inky puddle.
  • Dry with a heat tool and go back into the inky puddle, adding more ink as required.
  • Mix White Gouache into the inks and dip the card again. Add more inks as required to get areas of light and dark values.
  • Splatter with White Gouache and mix the gouache too with the inks and splatter those mixtures too.
  • Die cut a You Are Enough die from Ivory card and the backer from Vellum.
  • Attach the die to the Vellum with Gina K Connect Glue.
  • Trim the panel to fit an A2 card base cut and scored from Ivory card.
  • Add foam tape to the back of the panel and the sentiment piece and adhere to the card front.
  • Embellish with Eggshell Pearls and Iridescent Sequins.

And so there you go, the result of my play session with the new Prize Ribbon Distress Ink and a color scheme from the fabulous Paula Cheney. I particularly love how the light Crushed Olive plays off the deeper tones of the Prize Ribbon and that the embossed lines capture different combinations next to one another. One of my favorite parts is the flower bud where you have separate Prize Ribbon and Crushed Olive sepals which blend into Mermaid Lagoon petals. I hope you find some time to play with your supplies and see where it takes you.

Well, that’s me for this month. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial; you’ll find the video below. Thanks for joining me and I hope to see you next time for Doodling With Debby.
