Introducing… Stencil Abstract Triangles & Birthday Wishes

Hey!

Welcome to Day 2 of our 7th Birthday & February 2019 Release product introductions. How fun & colourful was yesterday? It sure brightened up my Wednesday! If you missed it, you can catch up HERE.

I’m back again today with my guest designer and the design team to show you LOTS of inspiration! This time we are introducing a new Stencil Abstract Triangles & Birthday Wishes Clear Stamp Set. Hopefully you have hopped on over from the start HERE where I have introduced these 2 new products a little.

How about a closer look at the cards I have made using them…

IntroDay2a

 

I had this crazy idea to rainbow the Abstract Triangle stencil and I am glad I did as the results are FAB! I used my Altenew Inks for this as I have more colours to choose from and I didn’t want to repeat the colours too much. It was just a matter of masking off each triangle to apply the colour and move onto the next.

IntroDay2f

I trimmed my card to exactly 6 x 6 ” and place my stencil central, this left a nice border around the edge. I layered it onto a black card base and added the BIG & BOLD Happy die cuts & clear stamp sentiment to finish the design.

Next I used the same technique of placing my stencil to create a border down the vertical sides. This time I used Distress Oxide Inks and I trimmed my panel horizontal to create a slightly raised panel when adhered to my base card.

I added a slight sprite of water to the ink blending, added another of the sentiments from Birthday Wishes and a trio of Nuvo Gloss White Drops.

IntroDay2e

Lastly I have one more card using Birthday Wishes and to continue the rainbow theme I created a watercolour rainbow block panel for my sentiment to be stamped onto.

IntroDay2c

I used smooth watercolour card, an acrylic block & Zig Clean Color Brush Pens. I coloured my acrylic block with the Zigs in a rainbow format, spritzed them and also my panel of watercolored card and stamped it in place. I had a little ink movement as I lifted, but still the results were good.

IntroDay2d

I used my MISTI tool to stamp the sentiment as even though the watercolour card is smooth, it still took a couple of stamps to get a crisp image. The trio of circle stamps are from yesterdays BIG & BOLD Happy clear stamp set and I also added some colourful Nuvo Drops to their centres.

That’s all I have to share today using these products, but I know Ruth our Guest Designer this month along with the Design Team have SO much more to share with you.

August 2018 Reveal, Release, Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Woohoo!

Finally the day has arrived and the August 2018 Release is NOW available to purchase HERE on the website. We have our traditional Reveal, Release, Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY! Hopefully you have hoped on over from the start of the hop HERE.

I managed to squeeze in a little more creative time in between admin jobs and created a ‘twofer’ using the new Background Builders: Happy Hexagons clear stamp set…

Aug18RD1

First up is this funky design!

I used one of the larger single hexagons to create this background. I didn’t use my stamping tool this time, I just eyeballed it and there is no particular sequence, it is totally random. I then used my Stampin’ Up! markers in bright colours to create the stripes.

I trimmed and adhered the panel to some black card before adhering to my white card base. The ‘hello’ sentiment is from BIG & BOLD Hello, stamped, embossed in white & fussy cut out. I really *need* some dies to match these BIG & BOLD sentiments 😉
Next, I went for another brightly stamped masculine design using the hexagons, but with a softer overall feel to the card…

I used my favourite Altenew ink colours to again stamp the larger single hexagons, just by eyeballing it. I layered the panel with some Basic Grey card and added the ‘You Rock’ sentiment from Simply Said Blocks.

The current challenge over at Twofer Card Challenge HERE and seen below is ‘Geometrics’, hence me making a twofer with Background Builders: Happy Hexagons!

Unfortunately, I only had time to finish these two cards :(
I did start making some watercolored cards very late last night, but ran out of energy to finish them, so I will be back tomorrow with those to share :)
