Stencil fun - Congrats Card

 New card day! I was having fun playing with all my old stencils, and that's how this card was born. 

The focus is on the Floral Garden Stencil. For the Pitch Black card background, I inked up the stencil with Dove White ink and then ran the stencil on top of the Pitch Black cardstock through my die cutting machine. This imprinted the ink and left a raised look to the background.

Next, I used Glitter Paste over the stencil onto Watercolor Cardstock. Do you know how much you need Glitter Paste? Because you need Glitter Paste. Once the paste was dried, I painted the panel with Reactive Inks in Pool Party, Key Lime Fizz, and Taffy.

I then die cut four pieces of the watercolored panel from the Rounded Jewel Infinity Dies. I glued the four pieces onto the black panel. Next I die cut the "Congrats" sentiment, which came from the May 2024 My Monthly Hero Kit. I die cut those from the Pitch Black cardstock and the white glitter cardstock.

Father's Day Cactus Card with Distress Pencils

 Time for some messy watercolor! This weekend I took Jenn Shurkus's Distress Watercolor Pencil technique class. I have so many great backgrounds from the class, and turned one of them into a succulent themed Father's Day card.

The card started with this background from the class. I used a Tim Holtz stencil Measured with Hero Arts Paste. I then watercolored it with Distress pencils in Vintage Photo and Salvaged Patina.

The succulents are from Hero Arts Cactus Fancy Die set. Each piece was cut from watercolor cardstock and also painted with Distress Pencils. 

I backed the succulents on some Vellum so they wouldn't get lost in the cool background. The sentiment was stamped in Espresso Ink and is from a Lawn Fawn set called Dad and Me.

Wishing you a crafty week ahead! Thanks for stopping by :)

Pretty Pink Posh Baby Cards + Instagram Hop

 I have more Pretty Pink Posh cards to share! Today is my hop day on Instagram (make sure to visit @rwkrafts to comment). I'm sharing three new baby cards featuring Pretty Pink Posh new releases for May.

You'll see that I created a blue, pink, and a yellow baby card. Each card starts with a background that features the PPP Baby Words stencil. The yellow card uses Pearl Paste by Hero Arts. I also die cut two Eyelet Square dies to frame the baby images.

The super cute stamps are from the PPP Baby Basics set along with the matching dies. All of the images are colored with Copic markers. The yellow cardstock is Canary from Hero Arts.

The Peony card uses the Baby Words Stencil with Hero Arts Glitter Paste. Three of the smallest Eyelet Squares were die cut from white cardstock to frame the images. These stamps are also from the Baby Basics set with matching dies; all colored with Copics.

The cute little stamps were adhered with foam tape to give them a little pop.

Of course there had to be a shaker card made! The blue card uses the adorable PPP Baby Rattle die, which I've turned into a shaker card using the Spring Breeze shaker beads. I again framed the rattle on an Eyelet Square die that was cut from vellum paper. All the cardstock used is from Hero Arts

Be sure to visit the Instagram hop to leave comments! There is a $30 Pretty Pink Posh gift card up for grabs for each hop day!
