May Arts / Tattered Angels Blog Week!
I made a winter card and had so much fun getting my fingers all inky playing with the with the Tattered Angels goodies. I used them to create background, color the image, color the ribbon, etc. So, let’s get on with the card and the tutorial, shall we?
This card has my typical clean look, but it packs a lot of shimmer and shine that looks so much better in person.
- Lawn Fawn Making Frosty Friend Clear Stamp set
- Penny Black Paisley Outline Cling Stamp
- Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Caribbean Blue
- Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze in Aloha Green
- Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze in Waterfall
- Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze in Flirty
- Tattered Angels Glam Glitter Paint in Jolly Old elf
1. On a piece of cardstock (or used a good size scrap cardstock) stamp the paisley background with watermark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Spray with glimmer mist, wipe the excess mist (the embossed part will stay resist the color).
2. Free hand cut a slope shape. Take a piece of the sheer ribbon and free hand cut a slope shape, but cut it in the slope in the opposite direction, so the ribbon slope would show up behind the stamped slope (see the card) and adhere to card.
3. Stamp a snowman and fussy cut the image, leaving some white space. Color the white space with glimmer glaze. I used two glimmer glazes and it helps create this beautiful color transition. Attach to card with pop-dots.
4. Stamp the branch. You can either stamp the branch directly on the card or you can fussy cut it like I did. I fussy cut mine, because I want it to hang outside the card a bit.
5. Stamp the bird and color the bird’s scarf with glimmer glaze.
6. Stamp snowflakes and sentiment. Color the snowflakes with glimmer glaze. The tiny brush in the glimmer glaze really makes it fun and easy to color images directly with the glaze.
Now, let me give you a close up look at this cute snowman’s hat. See the glitters? I think it add just the right amount of festivity to it, don’t you think? Keep on reading. J
How-to for the snowman hat:
1. Run adhesive tape on a small piece of cardstock and adhere ribbon directly on top of it. Here I used May Arts two tone ribbon.
2. Stamp the hat directly on the ribbon. I used Memento ink pad.
3. Brushed the “Glam Glitter Paint” on the image. This helps add sparkles to the hat and also preventing the ribbon from fraying. Let it dry.
4. Repeat step 1 & 2 with another ribbon. I used May Arts ¼” wide silk ribbon. Do not brush it with the paint. Maybe if you use different ink like Staz On, you can, but when you use dye ink, the color will run over. Cut just the band part of the hat and adhere this to the first hat.
5. Fussy cut the hat and adhere to the snowman head.
There you have it. My festive Winter Wonderland card. What do you think? I hope this project inspires you to get inky and to play with the wonderful mist and glaze from Tattered Angels and of course to play with your May Arts ribbon.
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
