Miss Your Face | Handmade Tag

Hello! Jane is here on the blog today with a gorgeous handmade tag created with our INK SWIRLS stencil, the quirky rose stamp from our RANDOM ART OF KINDNESS set, and our new MISS YOUR FACE sentiments which is so perfect for the World we are living in at the moment…


Hi there, today I am showcasing some old stamps with some of the new stamps.




I used the awesome new “I miss your face” sentiment from the Lost for Words set:


sentiment stamps | card making | clear photopolymer


with the incredibly versatile new Grunge Tones set


grunge background stamps | dots | circles


plus the gorgeous quirky rose stamp from the Random Art of Kindness set


quirky flower stamps | hand drawn | grungy stem | clear | rubber


and the beautiful Ink Swirls stencil

Here’s what I got up to;


I smooshed some squeezed lemonade and fossilized amber distress inks onto my mixed media mat, added some water and created a watercolour background to my tag.


Next I blended speckled egg distress ink through the ink swirls stencil



Then I stamped using all 3 stamps from the Grunge Tones set using salty ocean ink and first and 2nd generation stamping to give a subtle background



I also stamped and embossed the sentiment  from Lost for Words and the numbers stamps from Random Art of Kindness set and carried on building up the layers.



I added some alcohol ink pearls to heat resistant acetate. I have shared this technique many times before and also demoed it at many a stamp show in 2019. I stamped and clear embossed the roses and cut them out.



I stamped the roses again on the tag and then layered everything up



using glossy accents as my adhesive




Here is my finished tag which I mounted onto black

We adore this tag! The quirky rose stamp looks fabulous embossed on the acetate against the grungy background and the white of the ink swirls. Beautiful spring colours too! Thank you Jane ♡

NEW Midnight Sky Stamp Set

Hello! We want to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who has ordered our new stamps! We are overwhelmed by how loved they are and it means the world to us. We are back to sharing the amazing Design Team inspiration on the blog from today and have lots of inspiration coming your way! First up we have stempelfrida with a beautiful card featuring our MIDNIGHT SKY set which includes our wonderful man in the moon stamp and some gorgeous sentiments…


This saying here becomes so true again especially in our days currently: “No matter where we are, we all gaze at the same moon”.

My sky is a collage of blue toned alcohol inks.




As a basis for my moon and the stars I glued a layer of gold leaf to a white piece of cardstock with glue spray. When it was all dried well I stamped the motives onto it with Versamark. I embossed them with a shiny fine embossing powder. Then I fussy cut the motives, covered them with Versamark and embossed the surface with transparent embossing poder.


I added the motives with distance pads to my sky. The gold spitz is made with Bronze powder and a brush. I also used the bronze powder on the lower part of the sentiment.




Supplies

Moth Stamp On Fishnet Stencil

Hello and Happy Friday to you! Today’s inspiration comes from stempelfrida who has made a fantastic mixed media card featuring our moth stamp and ripped fishnet stencil, with some elements from our ‘Somewhere in Time’ stamp set…



You cannot turn back the clock and change the past. That’s the way it is, and I think it’s also pointless to think about “what would have happened if…” because who knows if things would have turned out differently again.

With this attitude I managed my life well so far. It has helped me a lot to take decisions. In this moment, in this situation, with this mood and at this point in time you made your decision. And that is good. Fate contributes its part.  This situation will never come back. It is about standing by your decision and moving on. Do not look back, but enjoy the moment and look ahead. If it is intended differently for you, something will happen to you again, someone will meet you, something will happen…

For this collage I used a special technique to transfer an alcohol ink background from Yupo paper to normal paper. You use Alcohol Lift Ink Reinker. From this you put some drops on the background, spread them with a brayer, put a paper over it and smooth it with your hand.


The wonderful thing is that you can stamp and emboss on the “normal paper” this way. On the three photos you can see it well:

1. alcohol ink background on Yupo paper



2. transfer on normal paper



3. stamped background



On the background I applied colorless embossing paste through the ripped fishnet stencil. When it was firm in consistency but not yet completely dry, I applied Perfect Pearls in gold. So you can see through the structure, but it has a nice golden shimmer.

I also added Nuvo Drop pearls.




I stamped the moth with Ink on 3 and fussy cut it. I then coloured it with Copics. I shaped it and glued it to the background with distance pads.

I rounded off the corners of my card and the base and knotted some bast around the text.
