A New Design Team Member & Toucan Party Week - Day 1

February 19, 2018

Hi Everyone!  I am so excited because today I get to introduce a new design team member to you!  Nicky Meek is a fantastic card maker that creates the cutest scenes out of stamps and dies.  You can check out her work on her fantastic Instagram page - @nickynoocards .  She also has the cutest etsy shop, www.etsy.com/shop/nickynoocards , that you don't want to miss.  I cannot wait to see what she is going to create next!

 Just check out her cute Toucan Party card!  It is too cute!!


In addition, Caryn has a really cute new card to share with us today too.  Let's take a peek.

"Hello, it's Caryn here with a couple of cards I've made using the gorgeous Toucan Party Clear Stamps and dies.  This is such a cool set to play with and is perfect for all kinds of occasions.  

I stamped all the images out using New Moon dye ink (I stamped extras of the foliage images so I'd have enough for the two cards) and coloured them all with Copics before die-cutting them.  

I used an orange card base and cut a mat using the Pierced Mats Elle-ments.  I layered my images using foam adhesive and finished by adding a good coating of Diamond Glaze (my favourite new/old thing to do!)

The second card uses a technique to get even more from your dies - by creating a stencil!  I made a stencil (using the Chevron Mat Coverplate die) from card but you could easily use acetate so you can re-use it again and again.  I taped the stencil down over a piece of green card (die cut using the Double Pierced Rectangles Elle-ments) and then used a spatula to spread the texture paste onto the card. 

Once this had dried I added my coloured images and finished it off with a sentiment from the Banner Bits stamp set and die collection."
