Ink Resist Teenage Card






I recently purchased the Hand Lettered Prose and there’s a lovely # included.  It made me think of an idea for a teenagers card.


I’ve used the ink Resist Technique, watercolour paper with my butterflies and leaves stamped with Versamark ink and then heat embossed in white.  Then all you need to do is sponge the ink in rainbow colours blending each colour into the next as you go. Rub the ink off the white embossing with some kitchen roll, then splash water droplets onto the ink and blot with clean kitchen roll.




I cut my letters from Basic Black and stuck to a strip of vellum which I wrapped around the paper and stuck with Tear & Tape on the back.  I used  Basic Black for my card base and I stamped the butterfly onto a Whisper White just under my card base size, with black ink for my card insert.




You could substitute the #hbd for the Birthday girls name!  Here’s a photo of a card made using same technique at one of my classes. By Erica
White background, numbers and a stamped Happy Birthday.

Let's Get Hopping Use Up Your DSP







Hello and welcome to this month's Let's Get Hopping Blog Hop.  We are a group of Stampin' Up Demonstrators who have joined together from all over the world to inspire you, hopefully!  
This month our theme is retired Designer Series Paper, are you a secret hoarder of pretty paper?  Do you buy it, love it so much you don't want to use it, or cut it!!!!  I know I do.

Here's a way to be brave and use your DSP, you can do it.

My retired Designer Series Paper appeared to be mainly Christmas so I decided to get ahead and make some Christmas Gift Tags!



Although my paper used is now retired the stamps are sneak peeks of the new Autumn/Winter Catalogue.















I’ve really enjoyed getting a jump start on my Gift Tags, these would also be a great item for selling at Craft Fairs

Texture Paste Background for Cards

I recently brought some new masks from Stampin' Up!  a sneak peek from the  new Autumn/Winter Catalogue , available to buy from on 4th September!  If you would like a free copy of the catalogue please e mail me!
Lindahandford@icloud.com

Back to my card!  I've coloured my Embossing paste with two ink refills, Soft Sea Foam and Coastal Cabana, only 1 drop of each was required. Mix well then position your mask and scrap the paste over the mask, taking excess away.


 My beautiful magnolia is stamped with Stazon ink on water colour paper, then using an aqua brush I’ve fake water coloured my image!
                                                 









My Texture Paste, leave for half hour to dry.



I went bright with my water colouring.



I’ve added my sentiment on Basic Black, heat embossed with White Embossing Powder .



As always I’ve made a video
