Fauz Metal Tag For this card Whisper White for the card base, Bravo Burgundy for the mat,and Basic Gray, Metallic Silver. I stamped the flower and words with basic gray ink. For the Faux metal tag, I preinked the bird stamp with versamark and set it aside, I punch a square out of basic gray cardstock and covered it in versamark ink. Added silver embossing powder and heated, let cool for a second and repeated, while it was still hot I pressed the versamark inked bird stamp into it to make the impression. Then I assembled the card.
Stained Glass technique- I used a bashful blue card base, black and white cardstock,& vellum cardstock. I stamped the image from Holy Family on the vellum with Black craft ink and the star in summer sun craft ink and embossed both with clear powder. Then I flipped it over and colored the back with Summer Sun, Brocade Blue, creamy caramel, close to cocoa and blush blossom markers. I then cut the black strips of cardstock diagonally on the corners to create a frame and adhered the vellum to the strips to make the frame, I added to 2 silver brads to each corner. I adhered the white cardstock to the center of the blue base and then attached the corners of frame to the card with dimensionals
PUNCHED BIB- I used So saffron, whisper white and certainly celery cardstock and saffron & celery inks. I punched a scallop out of designer paper and stamped a 1 3/8” circle, stamped the birdie from Nursery Neccessities on the circle, and adhered it to the scallop. Then using the 1 1/4 “ punch to cut out a small section of the matted circle to make it shaped like a bib and added a little ribbon for the bib ties. I tore the saffron cardstock and adhered white to the torn edge
SOOT Stamping- I used basic gray card base, and dusty Durango mat. I took a piece of glossy cardstock and moved it quickly back and forth through the flame of a candle. Keep the cardstock moving so it doesn’t catch on fire. Be sure not to touch the soot because it will wipe off very easily. I stamped the images into the soot using Dusty Durango ink. Then lightly sprayed with hairspray to seal the soot.
