We’re Expecting a Baby Girl Card #2

Here’s the second card I made to announce to family in other states that we’re having our first baby! This card came so naturally to me. I find that I have the most fun making card with spray inks and using my fingers. If it leaves my hands messy then I probably had that much more fun making it!

Here’s a list of the supplies I used:

Cardstock Stencil made using Amperzand Font on Silhouette Cameo 2  traced with Fude Ball Pen 

Ken Oliver Color Bursts in Alizarin Crimson and Ultramarine Blue

Luster Mica Spray Mist ( I stopped selling these due to the time they take to make. I still have the powders and bottles available if you are interested. I can post them for sale.)

Floral Frame Stencil used with Distress Paint in Spun Sugar , Gel Medium mixed with Mica Powder, and Silks Acrylics. (apply using a palette knife)

Tim Holtz Dot Fade Stencil used with Inka Gold in Champagne. (rub with your finger. Such a fun effect!)

I thoroughly enjoy making mixed media cards. I hope you give this one a try! Remember, subscribe to us on YouTube so you can get notified when the video for this card goes live!

Hi everyone! I just made this card last night for my Mom’s Birthday. Like most times, I sat down only with an idea of which products I wanted to use and a slight idea of what I wanted to do. I had no idea the card would come out looking like this, but I am pretty happy with it!

I started by spraying the background with Hawaiian Shores Luster Spray Mist to give it a nice creamy color. Then I used my Tim Holtz Dot Fade Layering Stencil with Hawaiian Orchid. Then I centrally sprayed Deep Sea Dive and used my heat tool to move it around a little bit . After that dried, I sprayed Shallow Waters using the same technique. Next, I grabbed my Stars Stencil ($1.99 in Mylar, $0.75 in Oil Board) and added Dusty Concord Distress Ink using a blending sponge. The cupcake stamp is from Tim Holtz Mini Blueprints and I’ve been dying to use it! I decided to keep that simple since there’s so much going on in the background and a ton of shimmer! The “happy birthday!” stamp is from one of The Paper Studio’s phrases sets that I got from Hobby Lobby. I like that they’re photopolymer and individual words. I did mess up the spacing  just a little bit though. Lastly, I added a few gemstones. These were in a $1.00 pack from Joann’s. I kept the inside of the card super simple and just sprayed a few spritzes of Hawaiian Orchid, Deep Sea Dive, and Shallow Waters. I still need to write a message on the inside.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my card. I love it when I “have” to make a card because sometimes I find myself avoiding my craft room and feeling uninspired. It seems like the moment I make myself go in there I realize all the awesome things that I have to play with and I get in the mood to create !! 🙂
