Try this technique! Score very vanilla every .5 inches in each direction with the simply scored tool (small tip in the stylus). Stamp image, then lightly sponge in soft suede ink to make your score lines pop. then add glitter to the snow.
Here is a Sneak Peek at the New Smooch spritz Stampin Up! is offering in the new Summer Mini. I have never used these before now all I can say– WOW they take covering chipboard to a whole new level!!
Take a closer look at the pictures– My son REALLY likes chocolate milk and he likes it really chocolate-y. So he skipped the spoon and poured. I’m not sure how I got this shot- I was in the kitchen just playing with the camera. He soon realized I was taking his picture. Hmmm, How much chocolate is too much???
And The Shabby Tea Room inspiration:
Here is a close up of how just a few spritz sprays cover chip board. WOW
I also sprayed it right on the card stock. My son constantly spills the Nesquick powder on the kitchen counter so I thought that it looked similar. Sparkle texture…LOVE IT!!
On a side note, make sure you get the New Color Catcher. This Smooch stuff sprays all over! The color catcher is perfect for chipboard and cards, if you are spraying your 12×12 pages you will need to have a big box or go outside. I made a bit of a mess!
Water colored with crayons on plain whisper white. I added a outline shadow so the white of the sheep would pop. This is the Scallop Die (scallop circle #2) I punched the circle with the 1-3/4″ circle punch.
ETA: the outline shadow is done with the water brush and a sahara sand watercolor crayon.
Stamps: Pun fun
paper: bashful blue, so saffron, delicate dots, Sahara sand, whisper white
Accessories: The big shot & scallop die#2, Paper piercer and mat pack, SAB ribbon bundle, silver brads, watercolor crayons & a water brush.
Technique: water coloring. I made this box and note card set for my hostess last weekend. I die cut the scallop card with my bigshot. The bashful blue circles are cut with my coluzzle and then I punched watercolor paper with the 1-3/4″ circle punch.
sorry, I forgot to write down the box dimensions….arrgghh!
Stamps: Pun Fun
Paper: Old olive, bashful blue, water color paper, retired dsp
Accessories: water brush and water color crayons (all color families), paper piercer, word window punch, big shot, 1-3/4″ circle punch, scallop edge punch, old olive ribbon.
Here was card from Regionals in Orlando. the Technique is water coloring.
Here is how I changed it up, with the supplies provided and what was available on the table.
This set is new for the new Occasions mini coming in a about a month or so…. I think. Sorry I don’t know the name…..but its GREAT for water coloring. I outlined the whole image with a little bit if chocolate chip ink, really watered down, using the water brush. Can you see the dimension it gives?
Paper: confetti cream, bashful blue, really rust
Ink: Chocolate chip
Accessories: Chocolate chip ribbon, water brush, water color crayons and ink for the lids of the stamp pads.
To see how I made these cards, check out my VERY 1st and VERY amateur video tutorial. Don’t mind my sarcasm (if you can catch it) and don’t mind the reversed images. I shot this 1st one from my laptop! I am not sure video is my cup of tea…..maybe with some practice! and a video camera would probably help. (I know I am my own WORST critic) Enjoy!
