Craft Roulette #163 Large

A Card with Three Tags?! – My First Craft Roulette Submission! Episode #163

Hi friends! Today’s card is my first ever submission for the Craft Roulette show – this card is for episode #163. This episode was also my first time watching the show and I can’t wait to continue watching and to submit more submissions!

The four parameters for this week’s episode were the following:

– Three tags

– May (I used the word may in my sentiment)

– Rose garden colours (I used green and pink)

– Masking (I used the racoon and the masking of the stencil on the tags)

Let me tell you about how I made this card!

Using the Festive Fall Stencil from Echo Park Paper Co., I combined Twisted Citron and Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxides to create a simple gradient of rose garden colours on the three tags.

I used the Cake Time stamp set from Hello Bluebird to stamp a racoon image and coloured it using the following Ohuhu alcohol markers:

CG5, CG2, CGII00, CGII08, CGII07, RV270, RV260, GY3, GY4, GY7

To finish, I printed out a sentiment in a font I liked and attached everything to an A7 card base!

Thanks for reading. Catch ya next time!

Embossing with a Stencil?!

Hi friends! Today’s card is made using a new tool I recently added to my craft collection – the Sizzix silicone rubber and impressions pad, which allows you to emboss stencils! I was really excited to try this tool out. It opens the door to so many new crafting possibilities!

Using the Festive Fall Stencil from Echo Park Paper Co, I embossed white cardstock using the already-mentioned Sizzix embossing tools. I lightly sprayed the cardstock with water to get a prominent embossed image.

I then used the stencil normally, ink blending a variety of distress oxides and inks to create a rainbow of bright colour. I used the following oxides and inks:

– Saltwater Taffy

– Spiced Marmalade

– Mustard Seed

– Mowed Lawn

– Salty Ocean

– Wilted Violet

Now that I have ink blended and embossed using the same stencil, I trimmed both panels in a way where the ink-blended panel would align with the embossed panel when placed together – it is kind of like a puzzle! After trimming them, I arranged and attached the pieces to an A2 card base.

For the sentiment, I chose the “celebrate” sentiment from the Hello Bluebird Birthday Script Stamp set and fussy cut it using Fiskars 6” spring-assisted scissors. I then attached the sentiment to the card.

I love how this card turned out! You can never go wrong with a simple card!
