Hello Gorgeous, Three Ways!

September 3, 2018

Erica back on The Ink Road blog today, with three cards using the Hello Gorgeous stamp and die cut bundle. Despite the same stamps and dies being used for all the cards, they look very different thanks to all of them being made in different ways. I like doing this with a new stamp and diecut set when I first get them to sort of ‘get to know’ them, if that makes sense? 

The simplest out of the three cards is the first one, where I have simply heat embossed the sentiment onto a background made using Distress Oxide inks to cover up a failed experiment. If you look closely you can see faint yellow, blue and pinks behind the green/teal ink smooshing. 

I detest wasting crafting stuff, hence the reason I kept the failed experiment piece. I’m quite pleased I found another use for it and it actually adds a little something to it, I think, having the other colours peeking through.

Before I stamped the sentiment, I used my anti-static tool all over the panel (I like the little cushion type) then a generous dab of VersaMark ink and Platinum embossing powder on top of that, and once heated and set with the heat gun, I placed it under some heavy-ish things to flatten it out. I should have left it longer as it keeps curling off around the edges of the card based I adhered it too. Or maybe I just need better adhesive?? Well, either way, the card was almost finished but needed a few iridescent sequins, which I added using Glossy Accents and set aside to dry. 

Card number two is also done with ink smooshing, but a bit more opaque, vivid and centred. On this panel I used the diecut and cut out the sentiment in the middle and set that aside. The little bits I gathered to use on this card though.

After running a black piece of card stock through my diecutting machine with the sentiment again it was time to puzzle them together. First I added the actual words and then the little bits I set aside from the first cut. As I had added double sided tape to the black card base, I didn’t need to worry about fiddling with a glue pen or anything like that. Just find the space, add the bit and press down. Violá!

A small smattering of black sequins in two different sizes, also added with Glossy Accents, finished off this card. 

To make the third card, I ran more black card stock through my die cutting machine with the sentiment and layered this up with the left over piece from Card No2. The black behind a sentiment diecut like this really makes it pop a lot more I find. 

A colour combo I like a lot is teal with gold so I decided to use the stripes from *background* and heat emboss them in gold across the front of the card. On a 5.5”x4.25”/A2 panel of water colour card stock, which I had dusted with my anti-static tool, I stamped the stripes with VersaMark. I had the help of my MISTI for this, to line them up perfectly. Once I had covered the whole panel,  I sprinkled Gold Tinsel embossing power and set that with my heat gun.

To add a little bit more interest to the background, I smooshed some Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide ink on a piece of acetate and sprayed water on it before dabbing the panel in it. I used the heat gun to dry the colour but I did dab off some of the excess water and colour with a tissue before that. 

Once it was all dry, I adhered the layered sentiment to it and added a few black gemstones to it before backing off. With these fabulous big, bold sentiments a card doesn’t need much more than a lovely background, don’t you agree? 

Well, that’s it from me for today but I will be back soon! Until then, don’t forget to check back what the other DT’s are up to! 

Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica

Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to understand a lot
about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
I think that you simply can do with some % to drive the message

An excellent read. I will certainly be back. 0mniartist asmr

Right now it sounds like WordPress is the preferred blogging platform out there right now.

(from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all
is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
