Hello and Welcome!
I am back today with another sample that I created for the Tim Holtz Creativation 2018 Booth…This is a super quick and easy card to make. In fact, while I was making it, I thought it would make a wonderful graduation card or would be great for a spring greeting card…
The Entomology Set (CMS328) is one of my favorite sets from the latest release, it can be used in so many different ways… it can be used for more manly type cards, kids birthday, halloween and those creepy type,
and then in this case, a more feminine type….
see, there are so many possibilities with this set!
For this card I used the Stampers Anonymous Entomology Set (CMS328), the new Organic Layering Stencil (THS106) plus the new Tim Holtz Sizzix Stacked Baroque Die Set.
First I started by creating the background paper. I stamped onto a piece of watercolor paper several of the bugs, and a bit of the background stamp using Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. Then I blended some Pumice Stone Distress Ink around the edges, with a blending tool, then spritzed it with some water, dabbed it off with a towel and then dried it with my heat tool. I then set that aside and began working on the center pieces.
I cut a piece of watercolor paper with the Baroque die set and then cut a slightly larger piece from the same set, using a light brown piece of paper from the Classic Craft Paper Stash. I sanded the edges of the brown baroque piece with my Sanding Grip and set that aside and began working on the center piece.
With some Ranger Texture Paste, the Organic Layering Stencil and a Palette Knife, I spread texture paste through the stencil and then set it aside to dry…when it was dry I stamped both of my bugs with Watering Can Archival Ink and then stamped a bit of the background stamp around the bugs. Then I sprinkled the piece with some Clear Embossing Powder and heated it with my heat tool.
I blended some Pumice Stone Distress around the edges and then colored the bugs with a variety of Distress Ink and a water brush.
I then blended a bit of Frayed Burlap Distress Ink onto the stenciled areas and then spritzed some water over top, blotted it with a towel and dried it with my heat tool.
I then smooshed a flower from the Tim Holtz Paper Bouquet into some Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and then dried it with my heat tool. Then, tied some thin jute around the flower.
I blended some Pumice Stone Distress Ink onto a phrase from the Idea-ology Small Talk Clippings, spritzed it with water and then dried it with my heat tool.
I added a piece of vintage lace and adhered all of my pieces down to the card.
and Lickety Split…the card was done!
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
