Nine Lives & Happy Tails 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder

Today I have a collection of cards using a 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder that I found here at Crafts By Happy Stamper. 

What I love the most is the images and sentiments can be changed around to suit the occasion.

All the Whisper White background layers have been embossed with the Subtle embossing folder and all the pieces have be layered on Lovely Lipstick Foil.

Geared Up Garage Faux Denim Cards

Always on the lookout for new techniques to try, I came across the Faux Denim technique and thought it would pair nicely with the new Geared Up Garage stamp set. 

Faux Demin is where you take lighter coloured cardstock - in this case I used Balmy Blue - and "swipe" the end of the inkpad across the cardstock - I used Night of Navy - in both directions to give the appearance of denim. You can choose how dark you want the colour by adding more swipes. Just a tip though - it get's messy lol

Firstly, I prepared quite a few pieces of Faux Denim in different shades. 

For this card, I mixed up some Embossing Paste with a small drop of Night of Navy Reinker and mixed slightly so as not totally change the paste to a sold blue. Then take a stencil, lay across the cardstock and using a palette knife, spread the paste over the stencil to fill the holes. Set aside to dry or set with the heat tool. Using Night of Navy Inkpad, I stamped the car onto watercolour paper and used the aquapainter to colour.

For this card I white heat embossed the car on a leftover piece of faux denim, where the colour was the lightest.

This car image on this card was black heat embossed onto Silver Foil.

Wonderful Romance Collection

My first workshop using the Whisper White Craft Inkpad and I really love the chalkboard result. It takes a little while to dry so you could heat set it with a Heat Tool or sprinkle Clear Embossing Powder over the white images and then heat set for a nice finish. I didn't have a Chalk Marker when I made these (it's on order now) so the flowers aren't as vibrant white as I would have liked. 

What a great workshop idea with very few products needed - full list below.
