BC Children's Hospital Foundation - Fundraising Event

Hello Everyone,

Sorry for my extended absence - university was getting crazy and so was life! I am back today to announce a super exciting project I have been working on. For the remainder of June, and all of July, I will be working with the BC Children's Hospital Foundation and Stampin' Up! in attempt to raise money for this deserving charity. By purchasing any SU! product during this time, you will be giving 20% of your purchase directly to this charity - isn't that wonderful?! If you have been waiting to splurge on something big, now is the time and you will also be giving to a great cause. For more information about this foundation, click HERE.

"Happy Day" - Expanding on Stamp and Stencil Techniques

Hello Everyone,

Hope everyone is enjoying their week so far! Just a quick card for today using a stencil technique and your ink pads. 

The first step is to cut out a stencil of a word with your favourite die cutting machine - I chose the word "happy." Next, temporarily adhere the stencil (I just made a paper stencil AKA the die cut negative) to your card. Finally, using various inks and stamps, stamp repeatedly within the stencil to get a cool looking design! I used some small "dot" and "open dot" stamps, but I think small hearts, starts, etc. would look cute as well. I used different coloured inks for different parts of the word, but I think an ombre effect of one colour would be another great variant of this card.

To finish off the card, I added the word "day", which was also die cut (I also covered it with my clear Wink of Stella pen, but you cannot see the shine in the pictures). The blue ink splots were made using Heidi Swapp Colour Shine and by delicately controlling the splatters.  

Just a reminder that Stampin' Up! is still offering free shipping until April 23rd 2014. If you are interested in placing an order, click here!

Hope you all liked my card for today. Feel free to comment below, or send an email with your questions. If you have any suggestions for future cards/techniques, also let me know! 

As always, crafty wishes,
