Today I’m popping in with a quick card and video on my YouTube channel of a card that took me less than twenty minutes to make!
Perfect for quick cards to send to your friends in these weird times. Plus Trinity Stamps is a small, family owned business so we definitely want to support them during this pandemic, where every little sale counts.
After prepping some Bristol Vellum paper with an anti-static tool, with the black Mini MISTI and the Embossing pad, I got a good stamp done. I sprinkled Opaque Bright White Super Fine embossing powder over this and then set that with my WOW! Heat tool.
To add bright, happy colours I have used re-inkers from Ink On 3 to do some quick water colouring. In a plastic tray, I dripped a few drops of each colour into the wells and then added Liquid Pixie Dust to them. This adds gorgeous colour AND shimmer in one fell swoop! The colours I used are Bee Sting Yellow, Marigold Orange, Marilyn Red, My Jam Purple, Peacock Blue and Goddess Green.
Once I had done a bright rainbow wash over the heat embossed image, I helped the drying process by using my heat tool on it. Both the front and the back.
With this done, it was time for my usual card-putting-together-faffing process. I toyed with several different colours of card stock, cut out in different sizes of Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle dies and some of my ready-made rainbow backgrounds. These are done with Lawn Fawn card stock, cut into slim strips and adhered to 5.5″x4.25″ panels. I have quite a few of these already made!
Once I settled on the layout, I put the whole thing together and that was it! So easy and so fast.
I have used compensated affiliate links in this post, so if you use any of these to treat yourself to a little something-something, I get a small commission directly from the company the link is affiliated to. The links to Trinity are not affiliate though, I’m just a fan and know Taniesa in real life.
Well, that’s it from me for today. I hope you will get a chance to stop by my YouTube channel and check out the video.
Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica
