Hello and good day to you! I’m going to be out of town for a few days for my Copic certification classes. I want to share this video post with you before I go. So exciting! I have only started my YouTube channel a few months ago and have not yet figure all the in and out of making an amazing video just yet. I do, however, quickly learned that video filming is not quite as easy as I have expected without the proper equipment and as well time. I’m using my iPhone to photograph my cards as well for video filming. So the quality is not as great as I would like. But I hope you will still enjoy seeing my projects.If you have not yet subscribe to
I am using the Magnolia Rhapsody cling stamp set from Penny Black. It’s a new purchase from Ellen Hutson that just arrived last Friday. Such perfect timing too as Kan (my husband) requested this card for his Godmother’s mom who hasn’t been doing well since the holiday. I hope this beautiful Magnolia Rhapsody will bring her smiles and brighten her day a bit.
I started by stamping the Magnolia Rhapsody with Ranger distressed markers in Worn Lipstock, Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint and Ground Espresso onto letterpress (110 lb) cardstock – an Ellen Hutson brand.Next, I soften the image by running a wet paint brush over the inks. Distress inks react to water. And surprising, I don’t know if you can tell in the photograph (and video), but the image raises from the paper after being wet – adding a 3D effect without any embossing. I’m not sure if it is because of the letterpress cardstock. But I’m really loving this look! So neat!
I carried the design to the inside of card with a partial stamping of the Magnolia Rhapsody.To complete the card, I stamped “Sending You LOVE” sentiment with VersaMark ink pad onto a piece of black cardstock and heat embossed with Ranger’s embossing powder – white. Then fussy cut into a banner flag, foam mounted onto the card panel and finished with enamel dots.
(TIP: To prevent the embossing powder from sticking to non-stamping area of the cardstock, rub the cardstock with the Inkadinkado embossing magic bag first to loosen the static cling from the cardstock).
Thanks for stopping by. May you have a lovely rest of your week. Take care.
