Walk in the Wild 3

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today is my last of 3 cards that I have made for you with the “Walk in the Wild” stamp set.  I may have used one stamp set, but I have shown you three different techniques.

Today’s card share illustrates the “Reverse Masking” technique … so simple but so effective.

I used the “Labels Collection” framelits to create my mask, then I placed it onto the Very Vanilla and sponged Pear Pizzazz around the edges. Then with the Mossy Meadow ink and our ever popular “Lovely as a Tree” … I stamped layers of the pine to create stunning dimension.

I used “Close to Cocoa” to stamp my quail onto the front and then my greeting.  Although there is no layering, the Reverse Masking technique give an appearance of dimension.

Thanks for coming back ~ Hope you enjoyed all three of my “Walk in the Wild” series cards.

I’ll be back tomorrow with the Weekly Deals…

Have a fabulous Monday!

Simply Sunday … Walk in the Wild 2

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I hope you are enjoying your weekend!  I got to spend some time with my granddaughter and my sister Eileen.  Yes stampers … we are planning an event, and as soon as I lock down the location, I will send you the details.  It’s going to be fun & exciting!!!  Tentative date: Thursday, May 28th.

Today is day 2 of my “Walk in the Wild” card share … I went pretty masculine on this one.  I am really going to miss this set! I love, love, love the moose.

I wanted something simple, yet a bit different from the textured embossing folders, so I went “old school” and crumpled up my “Baked Brown Sugar” cardstock, cut the edges, and then sponged it … to age it.  I love the warm color of the Baked Brown Sugar against the richness of the Early Espresso…. it even looks better in hand!

Next I stamped my moose with the StazOn™ Ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, and did a color wash over the entire piece.  Just a little ink in the tray of the ink pad and my “Aqua Painters” and your done in mere minutes!

My greeting comes from the”Something to Say” stamp set … then I cut it into a banner, curled up the edges … sponged it (to age it) and then anchored it with an “Antique Brad”.  I used a Blendabilities pen (some of you are still using yours) or you can use a sharpie, to tone down the color a bit.

This angle shows the dimension in the card … I popped up the moose, the greeting, and the brad with my Stampin’ Dimensionals.  TIP: Use your craft scissors to cut the tines off the brad so it lays evenly on your project.

Hope you enjoyed today’s manly moose … and don’t forget to stop back tomorrow to view the last card from my “Walk in the Wild” series.

Walk in the Wild – Card Share #1

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

As promised … I have the first of 3 cards from the Walk in the Wild stamp set to share with you.  I am beginning with the pheasant.

I used the technique that my clubs learned this month … Foil Embossing.  It’s quick, easy and oh so cool!  In fact, they will love to see that I am using the same layout they used for the “Thank You” card in class.

My image was stamped with StazOn and colored in with the Pear Pizzazz marker and the Blender Pen to apply the Island Indigo and Crumb Cake

When creating your foil background … you will need to use the “Heavy Duty” foil. We then glued a piece of cardstock onto the foil … trimmed off any access and then ran it through the Big Shot.  I used the “Woodgrain” textured impressions embossing folder.

One simple stampin’ tip … Remember when applying a piece of cardstock on a half sheet, only put adhesive on the half that will be in contact with your card.

I told you it was simple. I’d love to hear from you … please share any ideas with our blog followers on how you would use this technique.

Thank you for dropping by today …

Have an awesome weekend ~
