Creating Cards with Water Color Pencils and Die Cuts

Hello Friends! Recently I participated in a blog hop with Rita Barakat and Faber-Castell. One of the project kits Faber-Castell sent was to create cards with water color pencils. I have had this set of die cuts for awhile. I think I have been hoarding them just waiting for the right time to use them. The time has come!

The Cards

I wish I could tell you how to make these cards, but the technique box did a wonderful job of teaching! Basically each card was created with a stencil and water color pencils. I first traced the stencil, colored it in and ran a wet paint brush over the image. I added a few embellishments from a Queen and Co trunk I recently unboxed here:

Here are the close ups of each card:

In Conclusion

Normally I am not an advocate for hoarding craft supplies, but in this case it paid off! I could not think of a better way to use these sweet Rita Barakat die cuts. The moral of the post is: If it is pretty just buy it 😉

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

Boss Babe Card Set

Joy Clair Stamps and Thermoweb have come together for a wonderful blog hop! I created a set of striking cards using my favorite products from Thermoweb — foil, transfer gel, Glitz Glitter gel, a deco circle stencil, white card stock and a nifty new tool to help apply the gel. I decided on the Boss Babe stamp set as the sentiments of this set.

Get It Girl

To create this card I used the Glitz Glitter Gel and the stencil on black cardstock. I stamped the sentement and embossed it in silver along with all the edges. I used black glitter cardstock as a mat on each card in the set.

She Believed She Could So She Did

I repeated the same process as I did on the black card on this one. I used white cardstock instead to see how the Glitz Glitter Gel looked on a lighter surface.

Out Dream Yourself

Transfer gel and foil are my favorite products Thermoweb makes! I used them to create this card by applying the gel through the stencil, letting it dry and applied foil. I used a little Nuvo Shimmer Powder on it to make it pop.

You’re A Diamond They Can’t Break You

This is one of my favorite techniques o use with the scrap foil created by transferring an image! Simple cover a substrate with transfer gel, let it dry and adhere the scrap to it. This not only make it so nothing is wasted, it creates a gorgeous card base!

As A Set

This set took 40 minutes to create once the Transfer Gel was dry and the results are stunning! The Stencil Pal Tool is probably my favorite new tool of 2019! It may look simple, but the weight, size and flexibility of it make it easy to use and a must have for spreading any medium over a stencil.
