Galleries: Stamping, Cardmaking

Inspired by Two Peas in a Bucket's Stamping A to Z Event. For the N is for… Notions (rick rack), Q is for… Quirky, R is for Resist and Ranger, and S is for Sizzix and Spellbinders (Part 1) challenges.

The Christmas tree is from Hero Arts CL357 Holiday Dolls and is stamped on Sizzix Little Sizzlits patterned paper using Ranger Archival Ink in jet black. Xmas Red, Turquoise, and Silver Stickles glitter glue (by Ranger) accents were added to the tree. It is attached using foam for dimension.

The pink piece is from recycled plastic packaging. Various shades of Ranger alcohol inks were applied using a blending tool and felt over my non-stick craft sheet. I used blending solution and a paper towel to clean up the excess. Then, I used Ranger Archival Ink in jet black to stamp Hero Arts S5146 Bold Flourish on top and immediately wiped off the ink using paper towel as a resist (from Week 5 of Jennifer McGuire's Thinking Inking series). I turned it over so the non-inked side is face up and mounted it to a white paper backing. Then I die cut and dry embossed it using Spellbinders Nestabilities (Nesties) Labels Twelve.

The card base is made from navy cardstock. I stamped Hero Arts CG119 Flourish Background using Tsukineko VersaMark watermark ink (Hero Arts VC250). Then I heat embossed it with Ranger silver embossing powder and my Ranger Heat It craft tool (heat gun). The silver rick rack (notions) is from American Crafts.

Thanks for looking! :-)
