Just before the new Club Scrap Botanicals kit arrives,
I have some fun card ideas for you with
the April 50s Kitchen papers.
These are the cards
and I want to show you how I made them.
I took 3 colorsof distress stains that match this kit.
I had a few papers left,that I wanted to decorate for
a background for some cards.
So I put a few drops of ink on my craftsheet
and sprayed a few drops of water on it.
Take your paper and move it over the craftsheet.
This way you add color to your paper.
This is the result with different scraps of paper Iused.
Now what to do with these fun papers:
1. take a stamp and black ink and stamp on it.
Here you see the wonderful colors coloring the stamp.
This is the finished card.
For all the cards I used the digital version of
the 50s Kitchen kit to print the sentiments.
2. I found this wonderful stencil at Clearscraps
and just had to use it on the background. I took
Rangers Texture Paste and
used an old credit card to add the paste to the paper.
When you take of the stencil, you add the embossing powder.
For this I added silver embossing powder.
Now you cannot heath the powder right away.
You have to eave the paste to dry first.
Then you can heat emboss and it looks like
you really have forks and knives on your card.
And this is the finished card.
3. For the last card I used gesso.
I appliedit the same way as the paste.
It dries very quick.
Now add some of the matching ink colors
with a blending tool. You can use just one color
or like I did 3 colors.
This is the result.
I did not want to cover too much of the beautiful
background,so I just added a sentiment and the bottle cap
that came with the kit.
Hope I have given you some ideas to try.
Thanks for looking.
Have a creative day!
