CS Take It Make It: Masking and Stenciling

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Challenge for the month of July.

This month’s theme is Take a Technique: Stenciling or Masking!!  That means you can use a stencil or mask somewhere on your creation with a stamped image or sentiment anywhere on your creation.

Take a look at my card:

Hello (masked stencil) (TIMI)

So stenciling is pretty but mix that with masking and you have a great design.

Here is how I created this card:

I used Your Next Stamp Circle die to cut a circle out of some masking paper.

Then I placed the Inkadinkado masking paper on top of the card front.

After that I placed the stencil on top of the masked card front.

Once those two were in place, I blended the two distress ink colors on top of the stencil.

Stenciling and Masking (TIMI)

Then I took the mask off to reveal the beautiful circle of dots.

Completed (TIMI)

To finish the card off, I stamped the sentiment from a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set on top of the masked/stenciled dots.

Super simple and easy!!!

Sooooo, what do you think? Please let me know below.

Prizes:

We have two prizes to offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize. This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge! The sponsor for August is: GiogioCraft!

Here is how I create this card:

  1. I place Create a Smile Boxes Stencil on top of an A2 size card and held it down with post it tape.
  2. Then I used Distress Ink Wild Honey and Scattered Straw and applied ink using an ink blending tool.
  3. I started in the bottom right hand corner with wild honey and move my way up the card getting lighter with scattered straw.
  4. Then I stamped the sentiments from a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set with Clearsnap Colorbox Archival Wicked Dye Ink.

Super simple and easy!!!

CS Take It Make It: Watercoloring with Inks

Hello everyone!! I’m here with CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge Inspiration for June.

Our theme is Take a Technique: Lets Get Inky!!

For this month’s challenge the technique we would like you to use more then one type of ink on your project (ink pads, ink sprays, stains, acrylic inks, etc.)  Or more then one color of ink on your project…and don’t forget to include stamping somewhere too!!

This should be super fun to see what you come up with.

Take a look at my card:

Truth (CS Take It Make It)

My new Alex and Ani Art Infusion Feather bracelet is the inspiration for my card this week. When I saw this bracelet, I knew I had to have it.  Its purple and the feather was so pretty.  I immediately wanted to make a card that represented my bracelet.

I stamped the feather from Papertrey Ink What the Doodle: Feather Mini Stamp Set using Versafine Ink.

Then I sprinkled Colorbox Sterling Silver Embossing Powder and heat set it.

Then I used Distress Ink Seedless Preserve to watercolor the feather and the card. I heat set the card then colored more ink on top give the different saturation of this pretty purple color.

Once the card dried, I stamped the sentiment using Concord and 9th Sophisticated Script stamp set using Versafine Black Ink.

The feather represents Truth, Light, and Virtue!!

“Keep Your Heart Light” is what the motto!

So what do you think? I love how this card turned out.

CS Take It Make It: Using Different Inks

Hello everyone!! I’m here with CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge for June.

Our theme is Take a Technique: Lets Get Inky!!

For this month’s challenge the technique we would like you to use more then one type of ink on your project (ink pads, ink sprays, stains, acrylic inks, etc.)  Or more then one color of ink on your project…and don’t forget to include stamping somewhere too!!

This should be super fun to see what you come up with.

Take a look at my tag:

Hello Tag (TIMI)

I have to admit I’m super excited about this tag.  I don’t usually create tags, much less one with all of this ink on it, but I have to say I really had fun creating this tag.

Let’s check out how I created this:

I gather my supplies that I needed.

tag supplies (CSTIMI)

I used the ink blending tool to apply the ink to tag, overlapping the colors for seamless blending.

ink blending (CSTIMI)

Then I sprayed water in my hand, then sprinkled the water onto the tag.  The inks reacts to water so it creates water spot on the tag. Let the tag dry.

water splatter (CSTIMI)

Once the tag is dry, spray some wild honey distress spray stain to the tag. Let that dry.

ink sprayed (CSTIMI)

After that ink up the stamp with waterproof ink and stamp the image.

Once the image is on the tag, ink the edges with wild honey distress ink.

Inked edges (CMTIMI)

Now that the tag is done, I inked up the ribbon with the wild honey spray and heat set the ribbon.

You add the ribbon to the tag. I felt like this card needed a sentiment.  So I die cut 3 hello’s from Mama Elephant’s Venice Envelope die set.

Take another look:
