Dream Drops & Stencils

Welcome everyone! Today I’m sharing something a little new to me and that is using Nuvo Dream Drops with Stencils. I’ll be featuring products from Neat & Tangled for my card today.

Now this technique was actually something a fellow design team member did and I just had to give it a try.

I started by spraying the back of my Geometric Circles Stencil from Neat & Tangled with Pixie Spray. This is a temporary adhesive that you can put on your stencil and provides a light tack to hold the stencil in place on your card stock. In comes in super handy for intricate stencils like this one.

I attached the stencil in place on black card stock and then started adding on some Nuvo Dream Drops in Love Potion. Taking a Tonic Spatula, I started spreading it across my stencil, just like I would glimmer paste.

It’s amazing what this product looks like on black card stock! I have the bottle in my picture and you can see it’s a light pink but once it’s on black card stock, it turns like an iridescent purple. It’s stunning in person!

Once I spread it out evenly, I remove the stencil and allow some time dry. After it was dry, which I may have helped along with my heat tool, I trimmed down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and added to a white notecard with foam tape.

I die cut the Awesome word die once from Pixie Dust card stock and twice from white card stock. Then layered together with liquid glue. I added to the bottom half of my card with liquid glue as well.

The small sentiment that I heat embossed in white onto black card stock comes from the stamp set Mommy, Daddy and Me. I trimmed down to a thin strip and added to my card front with a tape runner.

Seriously, how stunning is this?! I’m blown away by the results ! I hope you’ll give this a try.

CARD DETAILS

My first card is featuring the ever-amazing Ocean Minded Card Kit. I have a video you can check out HERE using the Ocean Minded Stamp but today I’m focusing on the Sun Kissed stamp set that is in the kit.

I stamp images in Amalgam Ink, color with copic markers and cut out with the coordinating die.

For the background, I ink blend Tranquil Teal and Blue Lagoon onto Layering white card stock using a Life Changing Brush. I trim this panel down to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and add to a card base made from Ocean Mist card stock.

Using another piece of white card stock cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″, I die cut out a window using the Stitched Oval die. My little sand dune is created by die cutting a circle from Kraft card stock with the Double Stitched Circle die. I trim this piece down and add to my window so it’s just peeking up.

I’ll layer my window panel with foam tape and add to the front of my card. Then I can add my images with the Gina K Designs dot runner.

The word Sun is die cut from white card stock and I ombre ink blended Wild Dandelion and Tangerine Twist.

Here is another card I had created using the Ocean Minded stamp set. This card was created exactly as my previous cards from my VIDEO but this time I used Passionate Pink and Innocent Pink for the water. I just thought it was fun to change up the colors !

My next card is featuring the Whimsical Wildflowers Border set. I started by ink blending a panel of Ocean Mist card stock with Tranquil Teal and Blue Lagoon. Once the ink is dry, I heat emboss the frame image using white detail embossing powder.

I die cut the Hugs word die two times from white card stock and once from white glitter card stock and adhere together with liquid glue.

This beautiful scripty sentiment is also from the Whimsical Wildflowers Frames stamp set. I heat embossed in white onto Black card stock and trimmed to a thin strip with the Cut Align.

This detailed image looks amazing colored or heat embossed. So versatile!

Simon Says Stamp Rest & Refresh Release

Welcome everyone! It’s time for the Simon Says Stamp Rest & Refresh Release! Summertime is peeking around the corner! Can you see it?

I’m focusing on the new stencil that is being released. This is the Nautical Stripes Stencil. The stencil can be used in so many ways and themes.

I attached my stencil to Neenah White card stock 80 lb with some Pixie Spray. Then I added In The Navy ink from Gina K Designs using a Life Changing Blender Brush.

I trimmed out the panel with the Stitched Rectangles die and added to another piece of white card stock cut from the next size bigger in the Stitched Rectangles. I mounted the panel onto a piece of Kraft card stock using the Gina K Designs tape runner.

To add a bit of a scene, I die cut the Picture Book Sky Background from White and Moonstone card stock. Before adding this to my card front I’m stamping a sentiment from the Vacation Time stamp set with Altenew Obsidian Black Ink. I attached the cloud scene to my card switching out the white clouds for the Moonstone clouds.

The palm tree and seagull are from the Surfs Up stamp set. I stamped in copic friendly ink and colored with copic markers. Then cut out with the coordinating die and added to my card front with foam tape.

I love these stripes in the dark blue! Really adds to the nautical scene.

Be sure to head over and check out the rest of the Simon Says Stamp Rest & Relax release.

Today’s cards will be featuring the Have Faith stamp set and Timeless Beauty.

My first card is using Have Faith. This stamp set is filled with large, hand lettered sentiments. I paired my sentiment with the Thick Brush stencil.

For my background, I mixed various colors of Gina K Designs reinkers with Pearl Embossing Paste. Then applied the colored embossing paste to the stencil onto Neenah Solar White card stock.

Once dry, I trimmed the panel down and added to a card base made from Ivory card stock.

I stamped the sentiment onto white card stock using Black Amalgam ink and die cut with the Double Stitched Circles die. I added the sentiment to the card front with foam squares.

My next card is featuring the Timeless Beauty stamp set. It’s quite simple but I think packs a lot of punch!

I took the image of the lipstick lips and randomly stamped it onto a piece of white card stock with Cherry Red ink.

I trimmed the panel down and added to a piece of Cherry Red card stock which I also layered onto a white A2 size card base.

The sentiment is also from the Timeless Beauty stamp set. I stamped onto Black card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

So clean and simple but a lot of fun!

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!

Gina K Designs Release

It’s time for the latest release from Gina K Designs! It’s another one of those posts where you grab your coffee and tea and sit back to enjoy.

If you haven’t seen the Ocean Minded card kit yet, head over to the website and grab it. Go ahead. Go get it. I’ll wait. Because trust me, you don’t want to miss out! It is jam packed with so many awesome products I am sure it will sell out quickly.

VIDEO DETAILS

I have a tutorial that you can view below or HERE on my Youtube channel showing how to create this amazing beach scene. Heavenly right?!

I’m going to start my card by masking off the bottom of my card with Masking Magic paper and ink blending Wild Dandelion and Tangerine Twist with a Life Changing Blender Brush. I’ll place the Sunshine Stencil over the trop and light blend on some more Tangerine Twist.

I’ll remove my mask and add a new one to cover my ink blended area. This time I’m ink blending the bottom half of the card with Sandy Beach. From the masking magic down, I’ll ink blend Blue Denim and Blue Lagoon.

Once the ink is dry, I’m going to prep my card with an anti static tool, line up my ocean stamp and ink up with embossing ink. Placement of this step is kind of a big deal. You want to leave some beach showing. I made a couple where I didn’t have any beach and it just didn’t look right (to me). Next sprinkle on some Puffy Embossing powder and heat set. The puffy embossing powder adds so much texture and makes this look even more realistic!

To finish off the card, I trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and added a sentiment from the Sun Kissed stamp set to a circle cut with the Double Stitched Circles. My card base is made from Turquoise Sea card, layered with a piece of white card stock and adding my ocean panel.

For my next card shown, I created the ocean by ink blending Blue Denim at the very top and then Blue Lagoon and Sandy Beach. I heat embossed the ocean with the puffy white embossing powder and trimmed my panel down.

This time I added a sentiment from the Ocean Minded stamp set.

I layered the card with white card stock and added to an A2 size note card creating from Blue Lagoon card stock.

This set is so amazing you could create a scene and just frame it!

Be sure to head over and check out my video as it explains a lot!

Next I’m sharing some inspiration of the new stamp sets released tonight.

This is one is featuring Whimsical Wildflowers.

These florals from the Whimsical Wildflowers make a gorgeous border.

Timeless Beauty is a stunning of set with his fun lipstick that I stamped in Amalgam ink and colored with copic markers.

From clean and simple to a bright, bold background. Another card featuring Timeless Beauty.

There are a lot of stencils being released including the Leafy Stencil which I’m in love with! I lightly ink blended Key Lime and Grass Green. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Have Faith stamp set in the center of the card with Champagne Embossing powder.

I layered my panel onto white card stock and added to a card base made from Grass Green.

For my next card, I paired the Have Faith sentiment with a background created using the Deco Stencil. I ink blended a panel in Passionate Pink, Bubblegum Pink and Innocent Pink. Then I applied White Glitz Glitter Gel over the top with the Deco stencil.
