Nicole Diedrichs [also known as STEMPELFRIDA!]


Nicole is on our BLOGGING TEAM!


We love Nicole’s amazing cards, fantastic gelli prints and wonderful use of layers!



My passion for paper led me to fall head over heels in love with stamping. I mainly make cards and I guess they are clean, neat, crisp and flashy… mostly! And you can be sure I will surprise you once in a while!

Oh, I tell you, it is sooooo sooooo sad that these stamped shirts are not real shirts. On the other hand: My closet would burst at the seams.


T-shirt stamp | handmade card | you got this


When I made this card, I had so much fun. It’s so cool to create t-shirts with this set! I actually couldn’t stop at all. I hope you can see that a little bit in my collage. I made the “fabric” for the shirt using the shaving cream technique and the “Ripped Fishnet” stencil from Visible Image. I thought it looked so mega – a bit like snakeskin. That was perfect in combination with the lips. I stamped the shirt onto this background and fussy-cut it



I stamped the lips in a shade of red and colored them with polychromos. Then I also fussy-cut them and glued them on the shirt. That way I didn’t have to use masking techniques and the lips stand out more. So really yummy! For the background of my card, I took a design paper with a very lightly hinted pattern and stamped the saying many times on it. I used a greyish tone for it so that it would not be too bold. After this was dry, I stamped the dots from the set “Grunge Tones” with Versamark and embossed them in a burgundy tone.



I still had a bit of the “shirt fabric” left. From it I cut banners and stapled them to the card.

Words of Support | Stencil

Hello! Thanks for visiting our blog today. We are sharing a gorgeous card by Heather today, created with our WORDS OF SUPPORT and RIPPED FISHNET stencils, and stamps from our DON’T JUDGE set…


Afternoon!

I was super excited to see a wordy stencil when Words of Support was released last year, and one that was so poignant was just such a breath of fresh air!


stencil | kindness | empathy | words of support



This make was super simple but I’ll give you a quick run down…


I started the make using a gel press background I’d already created a while back.  I used a 7″ circle press for this and just brayered on pink and white acrylics.



I love the fact that the new Ripped Fishnet stencil is outline free so I popped him on top of the gelli print and used Distress Oxide Ink Pads to add some colour.



I didn”t tape the stencil down so had to be a bit careful but look at the what you get…



… lovely mottled effect!



I wanted to use the words separately so trimmed a hole in some scrap paper to mask off areas and to blend the colour, I used a mixture of Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserves.


The jigsaw pieces from the Don’t Judge set, were stamped onto another pre-made background that I added some shimmer mist too, trimmed and added to the card using foam tape.



The small sentiments, also from the Don’t Judge set, were then stamped around the edge before trimming and matting onto black card and then to an 8×8″ card blank.


A really lovely card to send to someone in need a little hug… and here’s the lovely goodies I made it with…





don't judge | stamps | broken | healing | jigsaw | heart



stencil | words | mindful | strong | kindness | support

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…



moth stamp | fishnet stencil | handmade card | alcohol inks



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.
