Hi stampers, it’s time for this month’s Awesome Add-ons feature! Before we dive into the project inspiration, here’s a look at all of the add-on products that were introduced along with the April kit -- 3 clear stamp sets with coordinating Frame Cuts, 4 Fancy Dies, 1 Bold Prints background stamp, and let's not forget Purple Liquid Watercolor. Oodles of fun and festive options for your projects!
Today Creative Team member Ilina Crouse is going to share some fabulous “beyond the kit” ideas for a few of the add-ons. Take it away, Ilina...
Hi everyone, this is Ilina! Today I am sharing two cards using some of the My Monthly Hero add-on sets from this month. I couldn't resist using the It's Fiesta Time and Cinco de Meow sets for my cards.
For my first card I used both sets (the cacti are from Cinco de Meow). I stamped the images onto alcohol marker friendly white card stock using Intense Black ink and then colored with Copic markers and cut them out.
On a separate piece of Snow layering paper (3 3/4" x 5") I did some ink blending using Grape Juice, Orchid and Bubble Gum ink pads. Then sprinkled some White Iridescent Shimmer Spray and Pink Metallic Spray to create a starry scene.
I used this as background for my little scene. I cut out another panel from Snow layering paper measuring 4" x 5 1/4" and used a circle die to cut out a window. I stamped the sentiment on the bottom using Intense Black ink.
If you have a dog, you need a cat, too. So I made another card using one of the cat images from Cinco de Meow set. I stamped it on alcohol marker friendly white card stock using Intense Black ink, colored and cut it out and set it aside. To create the background, I cut a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Snow layering paper and applied Ultra Pink ink directly to it until the color was even. While the ink was still wet, I stamped the Blanket Pattern Bold Prints using Versmark ink (the Versamark acted as bleach on the inked background).
I stamped the sentiment on a strip of Black layering paper using Versamark and embossed with Detail White embossing powder. I cut out a vellum circle and assembled my card. To finish it off I added few Champagne sequins.
