Technique Blog Hop – Make it Shine

Welcome to the Make it Shine Technique Blog Hop!

This month we are featuring focusing on things that shine! So it is up to the Maker to pick the products they wish to showcase. If you are coming from MICHELLE LONCAR’s Blog, you are on the right track! If you get lost you can find a full list of participants HERE we have about 9 makers participating in this hop.

So today is my son’s 10th birthday and I wanted to make him a fun card. One of his favorite stuffed animals in a pair of sharks he named Clark and Clarke. I thought it would be fun to make him a shark theme birthday card.

I decided to play with the Slimline Celebration, new Glitter paper, Oxide inks, shimmer brush, Stickles, and gems. I started by creating my own background using Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, and Chipped Sapphire inks. Here is what is looked like.

I then spritzed the background with water and Clear Shimmer brush. I then trimmed it to 3 1/4 x 8 1/4 inches.

You can see some of those oxide reactions have a bit a shine to it. I cut the Circle Cluster Thin Cut with Capri Glitter paper. I combined the Jawsome Birthday Stamp & Thin Cut with Fishy Greetings Stamp Set. I also used the new Lagoon Gems and Diamond Stickles.

I decided to play around with some of the new colors and our awesome new stencils.

How much fun is this new color Capri?? I started by using the Card Front Stencil 2 for my main paper and used Mermaid Lagoon Oxide ink. I then used the Stitched Rectangle Thin Cut and matted the paper on Capri Cardstock. The Daisy White circle was cut using the Circle Thin Cuts and the Capri circle was cut using the now retired stitched circle thin cuts. On the Daisy White circle I used two stamp sets ~ Embroidered Circles Stamp Set & For All Occasions. I used a bit of Capri Glitter Paper.

Okay I am not a pink person but this Wild berry color is awesome! I did pretty much the same as the card above but added the Wild Berry Ribbon and Wild Berry Sequins.

For this card I wanted to show off the great flower sequins that are in the Wild Berry Sequins. Yes, I did pick them out. I created my Shaker Flowers by using a Cricut cut from the Serenity Collection from CTMH which I modified. I added some foam tape behind the flower to make a shaker. The leaves are from the a thin cut set that has been retired. I sponged the Mermaid Lagoon Oxide ink onto Daisy White cardstock using the Stencil Pack 1. I then used the Stitched Rectangle Thin Cut for the black frame. The sentiment is from For all Occasions stamp set.

Technique Hop – “Anything Goes”

Welcome to the Technique Hop!!

If you get lost you can find a full list of participants HERE we have about 12 makers participating in this hop.

I decided to showcase Distressed Oxide Inks with the Jawsome Birthday stamp and thin cuts.

I used my Distressed Oxide inks on both cards to create unique backgrounds.

For this card I used Chipped Sapphire, Peacock Feathers, plus two from my stash Speckled Egg and Salty Ocean. I used a Wave stencil to create the water. I started with the Speckled Egg at the top. Then added Salty Ocean, followed by Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire. After layering the colors I spritzed the paper with water to initiate the oxide look. Then using the Stitched Rectangle frame to cut the paper. I then made a hole in the paper to make a spot for the shark to poke our. I inked the edges of the torn papers with the corresponding inks. I added a couple of the green sequins from the Crafty Loose Sequins.

Here is the inside of the card.

I am embarrassed to say I have not played with our Bitty Beads until now but they are awesome. I used my Distressed Oxide inks to create the base of the shaker. I colored the sharks with my Tri-blend Markers. I used the rock-n-roll technique on the sentiment. I used the Waterfall Stickles to add a bit glitter, although one of the dots got smudged 🙁

Here is the inside of the card.

August SOTM – Tutti Frutti Blog Hop

Welcome to the August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!

I have a couple of projects for you today with this fun stamp set.

This week we had the CTMH Virtual Conference and it was amazing! I was inspired by some of the presenters who used oxide inks on our Foil Pattern Papers. I decided to give it a try with our Silver Foil Papers. I used the Seedless Preserves Oxide ink for the background. I love how it turned out!! I then used the Stitched Scallop Bracket Thin Cut for the sentiment. I used the Wood Hearts and colored them with my Black Shimmer Brush. For the larger heart I backed it with Lilac cardstock and added a bit of Silver Embellishing Thread. I used my markers to color the grapes.

I had this idea while making the first card to actually make a bunch of grapes using circles. I pulled a retired embossing folder for the background. I used Grape, Lilac, and New England Ivy cardstock for the grape bunch. I used the 1″ circle Thin Cut.

I used the Isabelle papers to make this Summer layout. I did not have time to get the photo printed but it will be of my son selling lemonade. I used the Isabelle Cricut Collection to cut the lemons. I decided to change the watermelon shape in the Summer with a lemon. I added a few white sequins from the Silver Sequins and the yellow flowers from the Springtime Flowers.

Here is a close up of some of those details. I did add Lemonade Shimmer Brush to the lemons and a few splatters.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of AUGUST. If you are a member of the Close To My Heart VIP program and you place a qualifying order of $50 in the US, you will get the stamp for FREE!!

I cut the square with the Stitched Square Thin Cuts. I stamped the house on the stitched square and colored it with my markers.

Here is what it looks like when you start to open the card.

Here is the card open. I cut the heart with my Cricut. I inked the edge of the heart with toffee ink and stamped the keys in toffee. I did fussy cut them. I added a couple of the Gold Glitter gems for a bit of bling.
