Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you today!!! Please note that Blendabilities are no longer available with Stampin’ Up! because there was a product issue BUT I know many of you have them so I want to share these cool ideas with you!!!
How fabulous is this card? AND it is a man card!!! Love it!!!!!
For this card, I used a Whisper White card base of 4-1/4″ x 11″ and then I cut a piece of Window Sheet measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. I took the Window Sheet and placed it over some of the diagonal design from the Birthday Bash Designer Series Paper. You could use any type of Designer Series Paper that is stripes, or polka dots or any other design! I used this as my template to dry the lines with the Night of Navy and Old Olive Blendabilities (alcohol markers)!!!! They aren’t straight and they aren’t perfect and some are thick and some are thin but it is okay! Made with love and not perfection! 🙂 I love it all messy though which is super different because I normally like clean, simple, and straight. I used Sticky Strip to adhere the Window Sheet along the top of the card and then covered it up with the Pear Pizzazz Cotton Ribbon. LOVE IT!!! The greeting is from the Remembering Your Birthday Stamp Set!!!
Here is another card that I created by coloring on a Window Sheet. For this one, I embossed the Window Sheet with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder! Then I colored some of the dots with the Coastal Cabana Blendabilities. I will say this only really works with certain images. I tried it with the flowers in the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder and it failed. The markers make streaks and swirls so the images need to be small and not detailed. I used the Crazy About You Stamp Set and coordinating Hello You Framelits (Bundle & Save) for the greeting. I added some Silver Glimmer Paper for a little bling on the bottom! Love it!!!
