Spring Quilt Card

It’s been a while since I’ve used rubber stamps to make a card… 

and I’ll admit that it felt really good to sit and watercolor a image again.

Interesting fact…In 1996, my creative journey was started with rubber stamps.

This week the Xyron Design Team has partnered up with Deep Red Rubber Stamps.

I choose the Color Me Spring Quilt cling stamp to use in my project.

I like using art markers ( and dye ink pads) to water color my stamped image.

I scribble using the marker onto a piece of acetate. (or anything non-porous) and pick up

the ink from the marker with the water-brush and paint the image.

When layering the card…

The Xyron Creative Station* is great for adding adhesive to the back of intricate pieces.

For simple layers I use my Xyron Tape Runner*

I also use the XYRON Adhesive Eraser* to remove any extra adhesive that might show.

Embellish the card using self adhesive flower rhinestones and a sheer ribbon bow.

Embossing Clear Scraps Clear Shapes for Layouts and Cards

Vintage Sisters Layout for Clear Scrap by Sue Eldred using Clear Shape Flowers

Did you know that you can emboss Clear Scraps Clear Shapes?   (I didn’t until recently.)

Smile Card for Clear Scraps Sue Eldred July 2014

For my “Vintage Sisters” layout and “Smile” card, I started with a Clear Shape Flower.

To make the Flower:

  • I used my Big Shot and a Swiss Dot Embossing Plate to emboss my flower.
  • I dabbed Antique Linen Distress Paint on the front of the flower  (raised dot)  and Victorian Velvet Distress Paint on the back side of my flower.

Serenity

I love the 12″ flower stencil from Clear Scraps and I was hooked the very first time I used it.

I have a very limited amount of mists and sprays but I some how ended up making a very fun mess.   “I was a misting fool.”

When I first got the 12″ flower stencil I knew I wanted to experiment with white backgrounds. (something I’m not too comfortable with) My “Serenity” layout is made using the flower stencil on white card stock and misted with October Afternoon’s Lemon Drop Sprinklers. I love how the stencil makes a soft, dramatic statement on the page. I wanted to keep the layout simple and added simple elements such as the daisy made with a punch from Marvy Uchida.
