Birthday card with a blended Oxide background

Inspired by the awesome Distress Oxide Ink Blending Combinations series by Kristina Werner
I wanted to make a birthday card with such background.
Although all her backgrounds are awesome, I made my own combination. And that because I don’t have all the colours. First I tried some combination on several small pieces of Neenah Classic cardstock.

I was totally happy with a combination from Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Candied Apple.
Gorgeous warm colours.
I cut a 6” x 6” panel from Neenah Classic cardstock and blended those three colours on this panel.
I had to let it completely dry before I could go further because I wanted to head emboss on top of this.
When the ink isn’t completely dry you embossing powder will stick on to it and comes on places where you don’t want to have it.
Because I wasn’t in a hurry, I let it air dry overnight.

Ank- blending

The next day I stamped the SSS Ornate Background with VersaMark ink on my panel, using the Tim Holtz Stamping Tool. I was glad I did that because the background stamp is large and didn’t stamp completely in one time.
In the meanwhile that I was stamping my heat tool was already warming up.
I sprinkled my Ranger embossing powder over my ink and after tapping the excess of I melted the powder with my heat tool.

While the panel was cooling down I searched for a sentiment that would fit in to the opening I wanted to make in my panel. I found it in one of the Marianne Design stamp sets.
I stamped it on a piece of copy paper so that I could use it as a stamping guide later on.

When the panel was cooled down, I cut it smaller to 5.7 “x 5.7” so that I could place it later on to a 6 “x 6” base card.
I cut with my craft knife a opening by tracing the embossed lines of a particular part. Then I took a piece of Eva Foam, cut it a little smaller than my panel  placed it temporarily behind the panel and traced with a pencil the opening. I removed the panel from the foam and cut the opening out of the foam by following the pencil lines. I put this a side.

I took my base card and placed it in my Stamping Tool. I took the copy paper with the text I stamped earlier and placed this on top of my base card as a guide. Then I placed my panel over it and moved the copy paper until the text was visible in the opening. When I was satisfied I removed the panel, placed my stamp on top of the copy paper and closed my tool so my door could pick up the stamp on the right place.
I removed the copy paper, inked the top line of the text with Fossilized Amber and stamped it, the second line I stamped with Spiced Marmalade and the last line with Candied Apple. I put it aside to dry.

I glued the Eva Foam  behind the panel and let this also dry.

In the meanwhile I die cut and embossed two butterflies from the small piece of cardstock on which I had tried out my colour combination.

Time to put the card together.
I glued the panel with the Eva Foam on top of my base card.
With foam tape I adhered my butterflies on top of the card, I fussy cut for both of the butterflies antenna and glued them on the right place.
I used for a little bit of sparkle on the butterflies my Nuvo Shimmer pen and that finishes my card.

My last Christmas cards/tag

As promised my last Christmas cards, I only made a few this year and didn’t had time to post them, my healt issues made that not possible.
Underneath the photo’s there is a short description. If you specific want to know what I have used or how I have done something for a card, don’t hesitate to ask. I will always answer.

MD stempels
These four cards I made with a Marianne Design Stamp set, CS0880 Christmas Around the World.
I heat embost the stamps and fussy cut them or used a die that fits the ornament. There are no dies available for the stamp set. The ornaments that beside the text ornaments are made the same way.
The stamped text is Merry Christmas in different languages.

 

tag2
This tag is made with a Sizzix 658526 Labels Elise Big Die, die cut twice from different metallic cardstock.
The FindIt Trading Die ADD10069 Reindeer Ornament was die cut also twice and stuck together for dimension. I bend it some and adhere it with foamtape for more dimension. On the second tag I wrote my wishes.

These three cards ( slide show above) are made with a gorgeous Mariann Design Cutting and Embossing Die LR0445 Anja’s Circle XL.
Simply by using different colours, design papers and other decorations the cards don’t look similar..

I know these cards are a little to late for this year but perhaps you get inspired for next year.

 

Hartelijk Gefeliciteerd/Happy Birthday

Tussen het kleuren met mijn potloden door een kaart gemaakt voor een jarige.
Hierbij heb ik “gespeeld met inkt”, iets wat ook heerlijk is om te doen.
Eerst heb ik met VersaMark en clear embossing poeder gestempeld en ge-embost.
Hierna de achtergrond met verschillende kleuren Distress Oxide en een kwast geblend.
Dezelfde kleuren heb ik gebruikt op een rest stukje karton waarna ik de vlinder hier uit gestanst heb.  Zowel op de achtergrond als het rest stukje karton heb ik  een laagje Distress Glaze aangebracht omdat ik het geheel wilden sprayen met Perfect Pearls. Zonder Glaze reageert de mix water/Perfect Pearls met de Oxide inkt wat niet mijn bedoeling was.
Dezelfde vlinder nogmaals van wit karton gestanst. Tussen de vleugels van de grote vlinder heb ik foamtape geplakt zodat ze iets op staan.
Nog wat kleine vlinders uit hetzelfde  witte karton gestanst en opgeplakt.
Tot slot wat pailletten op de kaart en druppeltjes Glossy Accent op de vleugels van de vlinder om het geheel af te maken.
Gebruikte materialen staan onder de foto.

Between colouring with mij pencils I made a card for a birthday.
Hereby I was “playing with ink”, what also is wonderful to do.
First I stamped and embossed with VersaMark and clear embossing powder.
Then I blended the background with various colours Distress Oxide and a brush.
I used the same colors on a piece of scrap, where I die cut the butterfly out.
Both on the background and the piece of scrap I applied a layer of Distress Glaze because I wanted to spray the whole with Perfect Pearls. Without Glaze the mix of water/Perfect Pearls reacts with the Oxide ink which was not my intention.
I die cut the same butterfly out of white cardstock as well as a few small butterflies.
I stuck a few little pieces of foamtape between the coloured wings and white wings of the big butterfly and adhere it on my card, just like the little butterflies.
Finally  some sequins on the card and droplets of Glossy Accent on the wings of the butterfly to finish it off.

De achtergrond van deze kaart, gemaakt met glitter pasta en Distress Inkt, viel iets feller uit dan de bedoeling was. Niet lelijk en zonde om weg te gooien, vandaar dat ik de kaart heb afgemaakt. De vlinders zijn van vellum, gestempeld, heat embost en met een snijmal uitgesneden. Het stempelen heb ik ook met een snijmal gedaan, een techniek die ik een poosje geleden zag op het blog van Jennifer McGuire .
Met een waterpenseel en Distress inkt heb ik heel licht de vleugels nog bewerkt.
De tag is met de handgeschreven. Tot slot is het geheel nog bewerkt met Stickles.

Sparkly Verjaardag
I made the background with glitter paste and Distress Ink, it became a little bit brighter then I wanted. But it’s not ugly and a waste to thrown away, so I finished the card.
De butterflies are made of vellum, are first stamped, then heat emboss en die cut. The stamping was also done with a cutting die, a technique I saw a while ago on the blog of Jennifer McGuire .
I painted a few spots with a water brush and Distress Ink on the wings of the butterflies.
The tag is handwritten and I finished the card with Stickles drops.
