Stuck On You with Nicky

January 1, 2019

Hello, it's Nicky back with you today and Happy New Year to each and every one of you!  My first card of 2019 features the new Stuck On You mini stamp set with coordinating dies.  Yes, it's time to think about Valentine's Day!!!!

My background was created by ink blending Distress Inks in Cracked Pistachio and Tumbled glass using my Clarity Stencil Brushes onto white cardstock.  I applied this blended panel to my 110lb white cardstock base.  I die cut the Postage Stamp frame and the Photo Mat die from more white cardstock.  The frame was applied with foam tape and then with the Photo Mat I ink blended certain portions of it again using Cracked Pistachio and Tumbled Glass so that everything would tone with the background.

I reassembled the Photo Mat scene taping it together on the reverse then adding more foam tape and sticking it down at a playful angle.  The speech bubble is part of the Photo Mat die, so I die cut it and stamped my sentiment with Ranger Archival Ink in Potting Soil.  This too was applied with foam tape.

On Bristol Smooth cardstock I stamped my two cactus images again with the archival ink.  They were watercolour painted using my Kuretake Zigs then highlighted with a Uni-Ball Signo white gel pen and applied with foam tape.

The finishing touch was the application of some toning sequins.   Card complete!

Happy crafting everybody and all good things in 2019 for you and yours!
