Card Making Techniques Video #85

Hi friends and welcome back.  Today I am sharing Card Making Techniques Video #85.  This card is created with paper crafting products from Waffle Flowers and PinkFresh.  The video starts with a quick copic coloring tutorial on the florals and then moves on to an Ink Blending and Splatter Background Technique using Hero Arts Reactive Ink Pads.  It’s a start to finish card tutorial.

This is a “use your stash” video as I purchased these products a bit ago and I’m just getting around to creating with them.  Do you do that?  Get all excited about products and buy them, and then by the time they get delivered, you are on to something else?  haha.  I have a whole bin full of those so I’m working my way slowly through them.

This card was also created for the Misti Monday Challenge for January over on the Splitcoast Stampers Site.  The challenge this month is to Use Pink on Your Cards to express your gratitude for your Misti and the My Sweet Petunia Company.  I use my Misti for many different things in today’s video and I love it and appreciate having it so much.  I Hope you will join in the challenge

Card Making Techniques Video #85 – Card

Use the Misti to stamp the floral images onto Hammermill white cardstock using Gina K Amalgam Ink (Copic Friendly).

  • Color the image with Copic Markers:
    Pinks:  RV10, RV13, RV14, RV19
  • Greens:  YG13, G02, G13

Next, use the coordinating dies to cut out the images and set them aside.

Creating the Background:

Using the Waffle Flower Stencil Mat, ink blend Hero Arts Reactive Ink in Pool Party over the entire surface of the card front.

Next, go around the edges with the Blue Raspberry Ink.

Lay the Waffle Flowers Snowfall Background stencil over the piece and blend more ink through the stencil.

Finally, splatter the card front with water, then white and gold ink.  Set aside to dry

Die cut two frames using the Pinkfresh Diagonal Stitched Rectangles.  I like the added detail in the stitching, it adds so much interest to a card.

Attach it with foam tape and then add the florals.

Adding the Sentiment:

The sentiment is die cut three times in white using the Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday Script die.  Stacked and attached in the top right corner.

Finally, embellish with gems from the Pinkfresh Essentials Jewel Mix

  1. Yes, Sandi, I do the same thing. I am wild for stamp set x or die set y. By the time I get it, I’m on to the next thing. I need about a week to go through some “old” sets that have never been used!

    Thanks for the video. You made a lovely card!
