Butterfly Bouquet

For this card I used one of my new stamps from Blockheads Paper Arts 'Butterfly Bouquet'

For the background I used my Big and Juicy ink pad 'Mountain Meadow'  on silk card, for the image I used Momento black and clear embossing powder. I highlighted the flowers and butterfly with a Sakura clear glace pen.

Die Cut Technique

 For this technique I used a square die cut.  I cut the square out using my Cuttlebug, and used the templet part to create the coloured squares, the sqaures themselves I used as a mask.

Post-It note Technique

For this technique I used post-it notes.
Place the post-it on the card at the angle you wish then with cut and foam or makeup sponge apply the ink to the part not covered by the post-it.  Once you have the look you want I then inked up my stamp with Momento black and stamped the images!

Pokertails Emboss Resist

Firstly I inked the Pokertail stamp with Versamark and stamped it onto the silk card.  I cut a piece of a post-it note and placed it top right corner of the card and using a Versamark pen dotted a few dots randomly also on the card.

I used a piece of cut and dry foam and the blue and green ink from my Big and Juicy ink pad 'Mountain Medow' 'and applied the ink over the silk card, I removed the post-it cut circle and with a dry baby wipe I polished over the ink to give a shinny finish!

Blockheads Challenge - Emboss Resist Technique Blog Hop

Firstly I inked the Daisy Stamp from Blockheads Paper Arts, with Versamark and stamped it direct to the domino, I then coverd the image with clear embossing powder and heat set using my heat tool.  Once cooled I used a piece of cut and dry foam and a blend of ink from my Big and Juicy ink pad 'Mountain Medow' and applied the ink over the domino.

To finish off my domino I used Hi-Tack 3-D Crystal Lacquer to glue the bamboo beads to each side of the domino and finally thread black ribbon through the bamboo!

Blockheads Challenge Emboss Resist Technique Blog Hop

To make my Tag: 
Firstly I cut a piece of smooth shinny card from Inkylicious (bought from Create and Craft).  I then inked-up the Daisy Frame stamp from Blockheads using Versamark, stamped image onto the card and sprinkled with clear embossing powder tipping off excess, then heated with heat tool.  

I used the Big and Juicy Mountain Meadow ink pad to colour background using a piece of the cut and foam, once I applied the ink I used  a dry wet wipe to polish over the image this works nicely using the Inkylicious card.  I used a corner punch to round the corners of the card.  I layered it onto a pice of white card stock that I put through my Cuttlebug using the embossing folder 'Bird Call' then using cut and foam and Tim Holtz Distressed Ink 'Bundled Sage' to cover the embossed image, this was layered on to black card stock and again onto white card stock each of these I rounded the corners with corner punch.  To finish off I punched two holes either side and put in gold brads also a piece of white cord!
