Hello and welcome back! It's time for another Fancy Friday Blog Hop with my fancy friends (all current or former members of the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team). You'll love all of the wonderful ideas you see on this hop, so be sure to circle all the way around. We also have a Pinterest board that you can follow. You might have just arrived from Krista's blog, and I'm sure she wowed you with her project.
This month we are featuring techniques. I decided to work with the Seasonal Decorative Masks, and show you techniques that could be used with them. I made the backgrounds for these cards using four different techniques I'll be sharing today.
After adhering the background to the card base, I created a little scene with the Foxy Friends stamps and punch. The greeting is from the Glamper Greetings Stamp Set. I added a balloon with the Balloon Bouquet Punch and some Whisper White Baker's Twine. I also added Silver Metallic Thread to the greeting piece.
For the second technique, I used sponge daubers and ink pads. I tapped on the ink pad 4-5 times, tapped off 1-2 times on the scratch paper and then rubbed in a circular motion of the stencil. This is our normal weight Whisper White Cardstock. I also made sure to have the different colors overlap, but leave places where the original color was full strength. These colors are Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango and Rich Razzleberry.
I used the Foxy Friends bundle again, and the Glamper Greetings. To add more fun to this greeting, I used the Basic Black Metallic Thread.
For my third technique, I spritzed a mix of alcohol and Crushed Curry ink over the mask, and also used an aqua painter with Tangerine Tango ink to splatter over it.
Another scene created with the Foxy Friends set. Isn't this deer so cute! For this greeting, I used the copper metallic thread and the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set. Also, for each scene I used the Layering Circles and Layering Ovals Framelits dies, and for the greetings I used the Bunch of Banners Framelits.
For my fourth technique, I used a sponge dauber to rub VersaMark ink through the mask onto a piece of Pool Party Cardstock. Then, I added the Real Red Glitter Stampin' Emboss Powder, and heat embossed.
It's hard to see from the picture, but the glittery embossing powder is nice and sparkly. For this card front, I added the red from the Metallic Thread Combo Pack. This fox is from the Cozy Critters Stamp Set, and the greeting is back to the Glamper Greetings stamp set.
