(2018 c13) MFT, Reverse Die Impression, Distress Oxide Ink

Gratitude and Encouragement are my words for 2018.  I am grateful for friends and family and here is an encouraging card.

I had so much fun following Jennifer McGuire’s Reverse Die Impression tutorial for this card. You can see all my wordy details on the previous post: HERE

As you can see on the left, using Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger this is the second generation stamp impression of the My Favorite Things Die-Namics  Mesmerizing Mandalas.  I am adding Zig Wink Of Stella to the white un-inked portions.  You can better see the sparkle on the picture on the right.

The Celebrate was cut  with Tim Holtz Alterations Die set called Celebrate by Sizzix.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I adhered a sheet of DCWV The Adhesive Fabric 6×6 to a piece of white cardstock and stamped  Mondo Hydrangea from Essentials by Ellen Hutson with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Gold WOW Embossing Powder . I masked the hydrangea and sprayed the background with Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist, Kiwi (the link is to Amazon & it may not be good for very long, so you can also find on Ebay & Etsy).  

To color the fabric Hydrangea, I smooshed Distress Inks by Ranger:  Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Lilac, Squeezed Lemonade & Shabby Shutters onto a piece of acetate and added water to color each flower petal.  Then I mounted on a pattern cardstock from my stash of papers and mounted on a shimmery metalic cardstock.

(2018 c5) Beauty & the Beast Anniversary Hanger

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This 8 X 8 inch hanger is for my 40 year old son and his wife (they are still KIDS  to me). They loved BEAUTY AND THE BEAST and have given each other special reminders of the movie over the years (my daughter-in-law even painted a picture featuring the rose)

I’ve had the background pattern paper in my stash since 2002) It was from Sandy Lion copyrighted 2002 and I can no longer find it online, but there are lots of new Disney papers to choose from.  I used heart pattern vellum for my first layer, then leaf pattern vellum and the sentiment was stamped with a retired stamp company (Marks Finest Papers) set called Out On The Town and heat embossed with Black WOW, then cut out with Spellbinders Shapeabilities Nested Pennants (these are very hard to find, Oldies but Goodies){I had to modify the tag by only cutting out the fishtail end and then cutting the long straight portion with an exacto knife}.   As you can see on the inset picture I cut out the rose with my brand NEW die: (Xcut  xcu 503076 Mini Die Rose) several t

imes in different colors.  For the pink rose and the yellow rose on the right, I embossed the die into green paper and fussy-cut out along the outside boarder and then inserted the colored flower with 2 different tones.  Then I covered the outline of the pink rose with the Wink of Stella Marker for a little sparkle and the inside pieces with clear Wink of Stella.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA 
Clear was applied to the rose on the right.  For the rose on the left, I glued the entire yellow rose die cut onto the rose colored paper and colored the inside pinkOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA parts with yellow Wink of Stella  which changed the pink to a salmon color.  The leaf outlines were colored with green Wink of Stella.   For the ribbon attachment I punched the smallest holes with my Crop-A-Dile II Big Bite Punch.  I used Stickles Disco Ball for the little added dots of glittery sparkle around the card in groups of 3.
