Technique Hop – Let’s Get Geometrical

Welcome to the Technique Blog Hop!

This month we are focusing on accents of white on our projects! So it is up to the Maker to pick the products and how 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 14 makers participating in this hop.

So have you ever had a concept in your mind and are excited to make it? Well I had envisioned an idea of overlapping squares creating a cool effect but when it came to execution it did not turn our quite the way I envisioned. The slimline on the other hand worked the way I planned.

For this card I use Sapphire, Lagoon and Green Apple colors. The squares are1.25 inches and I probably should have over lapped them differently so that the sides were even. Well next time. I added the stitching using my White Gel pen and added a couple of white sequins. The sentiment is from Festive Borders Stamp and Thin Cuts. I colored the letters with my TriBlend Markers.

This card turned out the way I hoped. I used the Slimline stencil which is one of the Rewards Your Way Special. I used Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Candy Apple Oxide Inks. I used a masking technique to prevent the colors from bleeding on the other when I sponged them on. I cut the Birthday using the Slimline Thin Cuts. I actually cut three layers with the Black Core Cardstock to make them have more dimension. The adorable koala is from the Smitten collection. I masked the be mine form the balloon when I stamped it so I could add a different one. I happened to have the new Craft with Heart Card Subscription on my desk and one of the “happy” worked perfectly.

Here is a close up of the layered cardstock stentiment.

So I love this paper pack and think it will make some great Valentine’s creations. I decided to use it in another way. I had some photos printed and was looking for the right papers, Smitten was perfect! I used the Make it from Your Heart Volume 3 pattern 8.

I focused on the Nectarine and Capri colors. I used the a Stencil from the Stencil Bundle or Stencil Pack 2 (which is currently not available) with Spiced Marmalade and Mermaid Lagoon Distressed Oxide Inks to make the stars. I did spritz them with a fine mist of water. I used my Cricut to cut the Family and the “Time” is stamped using For All Occasions stamp set.

Here is the right side. I cut the star using my Cricut and used my White Gel Pens to create the stitched look.

Your next stop is along this hop is MY HEARTFELT SENTIMENTS  so hop on over and see what wonderful creation she has for you today.

Happy Crafting!
