Hello hello hello, it’s Lisa from Oh So Cute By Lisa and I am so excited because I am up on the Kat Scrappiness blog today with a really fun card I made for my daughter’s friend’s birthday. I love to take out a bunch of different Kat Scrappiness dies and use them in new and creative ways. Today I decided to make my own stencils with the Nested Layering Heart Dies. I needed to have a heart shaped stencil to do some ink blending in and I didn’t have anything like that.
I started by taking the 3 smallest dies in the Nested Layering Heart Dies and cut them out of some 6×6 stencil sheets. I just love blank stencil sheets because you can create any stencil you want with dies that you already own. How’s that for getting double duty out of your supplies!
I just love using my Distress Oxide Inks to do ink blending and I thought it would look really neat to do some ink blending over an embossed background.
I took a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock and stamped a scripty text background stamp in Versamark embossing ink and sprinkled white embossing powder over the panel. I then heated it until the powder was smooth and melted.
Next it was time to put my stencil to work. I placed my handmade heart stencil all over the panel in different positions even overlapping in certain spots and used 2 different color inks on each heart to get some beautiful blends. I had so much fun making a random pattern using my favorite colors. I was sort of going for a rainbow effect as much as possible. I just love the look of the text being highlighted over the heart shapes.
I’ll be honest, the ink blending looked way better than I thought it would. I was very happy with how it turned out! Once I liked the layout of the hearts, I used the largest die in the Stitched Scalloped Rectangle dies to cut out the panel and give it a finished edge. I used a bright piece of pink card stock to matte the panel on so it would really stand out.
For the sentiment I wanted a bold black die cut for the front and the Hooray w/ Shadow die was the perfect choice. I used a piece of vellum paper to back the black die cut and it looked great against the bright rainbow colors. The two smaller sentiment strips matched so well with white embossing on black paper!
And last but not least, what card would be complete without some Sparkling Clear Droplets?
I love how they let the color show through behind them!
I love how this card turned out and I love how with a little creativity and imagination you can create anything you want. You just have to think outside the box sometimes!
