So knowing that, I made a decision to execute a quick post today together with the Motivation stamps and Brush Strokes. Then I’ll do my Hipster cards tomorrow with an image tutorial. This first card is simple and doesn’t require a photo tutorial. Choose 5 Distress Ink Colors in exactly the same family. I chose 5 within the purple family. Pick among the linear Brushstrokes CMS293 stamps, ink it up, spritz with water and stamp it on a bit of Distress Watercolor Cardstock. Repeat with another 4 colors as well as your background is complete. The Motivation I CMS289 sentiment was colored with purple Distress Markers, i quickly breathed onto it to reactivate the inks and stamped it on a bit of Distress Watercolor Cardstock. I like what sort of lettering isn’t solid in the sentiment so that it looks worn and distressed. To complete it off I added some Mirrored Stars. This second card I’m not likely to execute a tutorial in the textured background because I’ll do this with tomorrow’s Hipster cards.

I’ll just say that I used the large Stone THS086 Layering Stencil, Grit Paste, and Distress Crayons to color it. For any sentiment from Motivation 2 CMS290, I stamped the Pine background in the Birch and Pine CMS280 onto a bit of Distress Multi Media Cardstock in Ground Espresso Distress Ink and colored in the backdrop lightly which has a blending tool and different brown Distress Inks. Together with the backdrop, I stamped the motivation using my Misti (I don’t possess one of these brilliant Tim Holtz Stamp Platforms yet!) and inked up what along with the Distress Ink colors I needed and I inked stamped and inked until each word stood out nicely. Well, I really like Disneyland! I’m a California girl born and raised and Disneyland is among the best places to go to. Thankfully I reside in Southern California therefore i offer an annual pass and also have the pleasure of visiting often. Actually, I’m actually a scrapbooker in mind and love scrapping my Disney memories.

Stamp small circles on each side with the large someone to for a vintage Mickey shape.

That being said, I can’t stand to utilize Disney papers and embellishments to scrap my photos. I have a tendency to see Disney in only about everything and prefer utilizing the unexpected for my Disney pages. Everything to state, when I saw this Mini Motivation CMS292 sentiment, both circle Brushstrokes CMS293, along with the Scribbles and Spirals CMS296 I knew this card needed to be made. I couldn’t NOT get this to card! I began by rolling Candied Apple Distress Paint onto the top circular brushstroke stamp having a brayer, then stamping it in the center of a bit of Distress Specialty Stamping Paper with underneath edge bleeding off of the paper. Then repeat twice with the tiny circular brushstroke. Stamp small circles on each side with the large someone to for a vintage Mickey shape. As the paint is drying, clean your brayer and stamps immediately. I simply use water plus a Rub-it Scrub-it pad from Ranger.

Time Until 5pm Tomorrow

It gets into all of the crevices and cleans the paint from the stamp nicely. After the paint is dry, ink in the Scribbles stamp with Mustard Seed Distress Ink and stamp it on the whole background. Utilizing a slightly dampened paper towel or tea towel, wipe any ink from the stamped painted image. To help make the black band, I took a bit of Distress Specialty Stamping Paper and placed it beneath the small scribbles layering stencil through the Mini Stencils 24 MTS024. I QUICKLY inked over it with Black Soot Distress Ink. I stamped the Mini Motivation on a bit of Distress Specialty Stamping Paper with Black Soot Distress Ink. I added four Star Fasteners inside the corners on the card to perform it. The final card was inspired by seeing my Distress DIY Custom Ink Pad sitting in my own ink case. I began utilizing the same ink colors I had formed applied to my ink pad, Wild Honey, Abandoned Coral, Festive Berries, and randomly inking the Spirals stamp from Scribbles and Spirals CMS296. I QUICKLY spritzed it with water and stamped it on a bit of Distress Watercolor Cardstock.

Using a blending tool, I blended exactly the same colors in to the back ground. I QUICKLY sprinkled it with water drops using my Distress Sprayer and dried it. I acquired out another little bit of Distress Watercolor Cardstock and utilizing a Blending Tool I colored it with Festive Berries. You need it for being fairly saturated, however, not as saturated since it will be with Distress Stain. Then utilizing the large Heartstruck THS073 Layering Stencil, I spritzed the trunk with plain water using my Distress Sprayer and laid it on the paper. I pressed down onto it using a dry tea towel, then found the stencil and allow water do its work. After waiting several seconds roughly, I blotted water off with my dry tea towel and dried it which has a heat tool. To obtain the stamped image in varied colors such as this you first need to create a Distress DIY Custom Ink Pad. Tim has this fantastic tutorial on how best to make one. Once you’ve your personal Distress DIY Custom Ink Pad made, you ink up your stamp. Because these stamps are bigger than the ink pad, you must think prior to deciding to ink. First you ink one end with the stamp, then turn your ink pad 180 degrees and you also ink another end in the stamp. This way exactly the same color is in the centre every time you are inking. Observe how on my image the Wild Honey is at the top and bottom and is blends in to the Abandoned Coral and Festive Berries in the guts.
