I’ve been holding off showing you these cards as they were made especially for The Eureka Stampers Team Day which was held today. The fabulous day was put on by my wonderful downlines Simone Bartrum, Tracy Penn and Maureen Crameri for their downlines. Girls you did an amazing job and I am positive your teams are very proud of you all. You and the many presentations done today will have totally inspired them to get out there and create up a storm!
Simone very kindly asked me to do a “Wow” demonstration and so I did my fave technique of the moment “Painters Tape Technique”. You may also see this described as “Faux Washi Tape Technique”. I tied it in with the current Sale-a-bration stamp set “See Ya Later” to show how that stamp set could be used with this technique for a workshop make and take.
So here we go –
All the cards are mounted onto Basic Black matts and then onto White Naturals folded card. The Whisper White inked piece measures 8.5 x 7.5 cm. Love the new Bakers twine in silver and gold. Colours used here to ink are Strawberry Slush, Crisp Canteloupe and Blushing Bride. The little heart is punched out using the owl punch – the little heart with that punch, it is so handy for so many projects.
Colours are – Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay. Dazzling Details glitter glue was added to create the icing effect.
The little punched out details are made using some Watercolour Wonder washi tape stuck onto So Saffron card and punched out using the tiny flower punch from the Itty Bitty punch pack. Very cute way to add an extra detail to your card. They were mounted on Dimensionals to make them pop off the card.
Colours – Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Old Olive.
Last of all –
I love the little silver clouds on this card. Again using the tiny flower punch used above I punched out discs from silver glimmer paper and cut them in half to create the extra clouds.
Colours are – Pool Party, Baja Breeze and Coastal Cabana. I know, I know Baja Breeze is retired but it still lives in front of me in my ink pad storage! It wasn’t until I photographed these cards after I had made them that I realised my faux pas so the next sample I made for use today used Soft Sky for the Baja Breeze.
If you would like to learn this technique in a workshop let me know and we will make a date to have a fun time getting inky!
Hope you like these. Check out my pages next time for some variations on this technique.
