Framework for Crafting Success
Angel Rivera‘s cards are so bright and cheery — we’re excited to see what she’s done with our June Release…let’s get right to it!
Hi all! I can’t even tell you how thrilled I am to be guesting on the MFT Blog today! I have a couple of cards for you today.
For my first card, I used the emboss resist technique with the new Framework Stencil. I taped the stencil to my watercolor paper then inked it up with Versamark ink. After I embossed it with clear embossing powder, I sponged over it with Grape Jelly, Blueberry, Lush Lagoon, Field Day, Lemon Drop, Orange Fizz, and Electric Red inks then spritzed it with some water because I just love that look! I used 5 of the Color Drops Die-namics to cut out certain areas that I had sponged, then layered them over a strip of patterned paper from the Black & White Basics Paper Pack and my Smooth White card base. I doubled up on the foam adhesive on two of them for more dimension. The sentiment is from the new Beary Big Adventure stamp set and is embossed with white embossing powder on Black Licorice Card Stock.
My second card features the ridiculously CUTE Birdie Brown Party Like a Pirate stamp set. I used the no-line coloring technique with my Copics for the handsome little pirate (I even gave him some freckles). I also used that technique for the pirate ship. The ship has a layer of vellum over it to make it appear more in the distance. The Framework Stencil is so cool, I had to use it again! I sponged it with Grout Gray ink over Cement Gray Card Stock. The card base and Circle Shaker Window & Frame Die-namics are cut from Steel Blue Card Stock. The sentiment was stamped with Black Licorice ink onto Stone Gray Card Stock and then cut with an element from Blueprints 13.
Seriously inspiring work from Angel, right? If you’re itching to make something now that you’ve seen her projects, be sure to tag #mftstamps when you share on social media so we can see what you’re creating – maybe you’ll be spotted!
