I used quite a few ” new to me” techniques on this card. The “hello” was a stamp I carved myself out of silicone. I was curious of how silicone would work as a stamp. It wasn’t great and I had to go back in with a paint brush to make the image solid. I also used one of my hexagon masks with glitter acrylic paint and watercolors for the background. I made a tone gradient with the paint and the stencil and a color fade with the water colors. I’ve had a twilling tool for a while and I wanted to use it so I used the scraps I had left from cutting down the card to make the whimsical flowers. This card was fun to make , but if I did it again, I think I would use a different sentiment. I took some pictures with the flash hoping the glitter would show up.
Above is a picture of me testing the silicone stamp I carved. It does seem like silicone would be a good choice for making texture in UTEE, so I plan on trying that some day!
My best friend and I had a lot of fun making these Baby Shower invitations in a time crunch! We made 25 of them in just over 2 hours. The only thing we forget is to put where she is registered…oops! I think she figured out a way to incorporate that into the card though. Whew.
Here is a vague list of what we used:
Nested Owls Shapeabilities < Click to find them in my store!
Mini Labels Movers & Shapers
2 separate DCWV Mat Stacks (Can’t remember which ones, sorry!)
Fiskars and Recollections Baby themed stamp sets
White Embossing Powder, Versamark, and Heat Gun
Studio G Black Pigment Ink
Dot Runner from $1 Bin at Joann’s

We both seriously fell in love with the white owl on the black sparkly background. I know it’s not very baby-ish, but it is so cute! If you have any questions about how we did something, please feel free to comment.
Since Mother’s Day has passed, I am not going to get into all the details about these cards. I am just posting the pics to maybe give you some ideas. These cards can be used for other occasions by simply … Continue reading →
