Fun Time With Stencil With DT Toni

Hello, Divas!  Toni here with you again today to share one of my favorite ways to use a stencil--by using one with ink on the base then another on top using either a different color ink or embossing paste.  Come, let's take a look at how I created this card.

I started by added Doodlebug Official Stripe Washi Tape, aligning the strips on cardstock. I then cut this out using a Stitched In Circle Die. Do you see a mod beehive like I do? I had also colored and cut out the sweet images from Sweet as Honey. I hadn't noticed the large bees are actually animals inside bee costumes. I'm thinking future Halloween costume cards!

Next I sponged the Hearts Galore Stencil, ombre style, using Distress Ink Mustard Seed and Distress Oxide Squeezed Lemonade. I love these bright, sunny shades! I then used the Sorted Shapes 1 Stencil to randomly emboss honeycombs using Ranger Transparent Gloss Embossing Paste on top of the hearts. I sprinkled glitter (Nuvo Sparkle Dust - Snow Glow) on top of that while the paste was still wet. Some certainly shakes off once dry, but a fair and deliciously sparkly amount remains.

It's hard to capture well, but the glitter adds some lovely sparkle. When you try this technique, you'll find that if you hold the card away from you, the underlayer stenciling may be dominant while closer up, the top layer captures the eyes.  It's a really cool effect! Lastly, I added the Sweet as Honey images, a sentiment from Bee Cakery and a few tiny, tiny heart sequins from the Ladybug mix.

I hope you'll give this double layering stencil technique a try and show it to us!

You have a few days left to participate in the CDD Moodboard Challenge.  I was inspired by the sunny yellows in the lower left and the stripes on the cupcake liners in the upper right. Plus, the whole board is sweet as honey!  You can join the event and post there to play along or you can tag #cddmonthly. I hope to see you there!

Small Images Big Background With DT Brianna

Hello everyone, Brianna joining you all today. I'm here to bring a little sunshine and happiness to your day using the adorable, Weather Gnomes stamp set. 

Today, I will be focusing on the smaller stamps within this set. My goal was to create a focal point for my card while still keeping it clean and simple.
Let's get started shall we!?

Let's start with the focal point piece of the card....
I started by first stamping and coloring my three little images on my mat, that I cut out using the, Fancy Frame Dies. 
(colors used on finished focal point piece as shown above)

I then used the Hearts Galore stencil to add some little hearts for above my rainbow. I though they would look cute and go perfect with my sentiment. 

I finished up my focal piece by adding some thinly cut strips of bright colored paper (this is a great way to use up some scraps you may have lying around). 

For my background I brought out my sidekick, aka my Misti tool. This comes in super handy when doing repetitive patterns, trying to keep your paper in place & getting a nice dark crisp image. 

To finish up I popped up my focal piece by added some scotch 3D foam tape and used some glossy accents to add some Shimmer sequins. 


Thank you all for taking time out of your day to stop on by :)

Until next time.

Small Images Big Background With DT Marine

Hello everyone, it's Marine from DT! I hope you like the new release as much as I do! Today I'm sharing three cards I made using small images to create cute and colorful backgrounds. Very simple to make: stamp and color! ^^

The blue one showcases the new "Look For Stars" stamp set. This new set is very soft and dreamy so I used blue to color the background. The rainbows and stars bring a nice contrast with their bright colors.

The green one was inspired by the April Mood Board Challenge which is all about Easter. I used cute bunnies from the "Jellybean Kisses" stamp set and other images from the "Easter Cuties" digi stamp set. The green background represent the grass where we hide the chocolate treats ^^

The orange one is a Spring celebration, even if when I write this post it's raining where I live... I used the "Ladybug Garden" stamp set and a lot of colors so it would help the sun coming out from behind the clouds! ^^

I hope you'll like these colorful cards, have a beautiful day and see you soon!
