Awesome Add-ons: August Edition
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 14 of the add-on products that were introduced along with the August kit -- 3 clear stamp sets with coordinating Frame Cuts, 1 Stamp & Cut set, 2 Bold Prints background cling stamps, 1 Frame Fancy Die, 1 woodblock stamp, revamped teacup and teapot Infinity Dies (handles included!), and Cocoa Liquid Watercolor that's just perfect for all of your caffeinated creations.
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, I hope you are loving this release as much as I do. I am a coffee lover (or addict), so the entire release is right up my alley. So, I have two cards to share with you today.
For my first card I used the Spill the Tea set and matching Frame Cuts. I started by stamping the tea cup image onto watercolor friendly card stock using Intense Black ink, watercolored it and die cut it.
Next, I used the Floral Doily Bold Prints to stamp onto a Snow Layering Paper panel (3 3/4" x 5") using Versamark, embossed in white and ink blended with Soft Pool Shadow ink. For a finishing touch I stamped the sentiment onto Black Layering Paper and embossed in white, and trimmed to size. I assembled my card and added some Frost sequins to finish it off.
For my second card I used the Foam Animals set and coordinating Frame Cuts. I started by stamping the images onto alcohol marker friendly white card stock with Intense Black Ink and colored with Copic markers, then die cut. I added some highlights using white gel pen.
I cut a panel from Vellum layering paper, stamped and embossed the sentiment on it. I set these elements aside. Next, I cut a panel from Kraft Layering Paper and scored at each 1/4" to create a fun background. I assembled my card and added a strip of white corrugated card stock and some brown twine, along with Champagne sequins as finishing touch.
Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you are inspired to do something creative today.
