Hello Friends and happy Saturday! Today I am sharing another birthday card idea using a newly released stencil from Maker Forte called Hats Off To You! This is one stencil that has several parts to create some fun party hats. I chose to use the striped portion of the stencil for my card and as soon as I added the Marshmallow Paste I instantly thought it looked like a tree…haha
Keep that in mind for the holidays 😉
I really struggled to come up with a project for today, sometimes when I have a lot going on nothing seems to come together creatively. When this happens I turn to a favorite technique, in this case ink blending.
Ink blending is one of my most favorite things to do and if you follow my Youtube channel you know I give lots of tips and tricks to get better blends and the number one tip I can give you is to use Hot Pressed Watercolor Paper (100 % Cotton, to be exact) With that being said; I thought I would try a new to me paper (I always try to keep an open mind…haha) This new paper is from Maker Forte called Perfect Blend Card Stock.
My initial thoughts: It is different and I like it, depending on the look I am going for. It reminds me of Yupo, in that it is really glossy and plastic like, but as you blend the color dries into the paper…kinda cool.
In todays video I show you a new ink blending technique that works really well with this paper. If you have trouble watching here on the blog, please click here to watch on Youtube.
Lots of details in the video and I encourage you to check it out to see how the card came together.
