Digis- Robyn's Fetish. I colored mine with Copics.
Gather your supplies and set up your work station.
Add drops of Acrylic paint in 3- 4 colors. I am using Apple Barrel Leaf Green, Caterpillar, Christmas Green.
Note: You can use any size card stock. I am doing a 8 1/2" x 11" sheet.
Now add drops of Liquitex slowly blending medium. I recommend about 8-12 drops depending on the size drops.
Keep rolling until your whole sheet is covered.
There will be excess paint. Lay a sheet of card stock on top and rub your hand across it.
Lift off the card stock and this is what you will have if there is a lot of excess paint. Lay your papers aside on wax paper so they will not stick. Then clean your mat and brayer immediately.
Now I am going to show you what to do if there is not a lot of excess paint to cover your paper. I got good at doing this.
Remove your paper and set aside the bottom sheet. Notice that there is paint on the mat and there is plenty on the brayer, too.
Using the paint on your brayer, first roll it on your paper. Then roll the brayer in the paint on your mat just until covered and then roll it on the paper. Keep doing this until your paper is covered. The design will still be there from the original but it will be muted by adding a light coat of the paint to cover the paper as you can see in this photo.
Once your papers are dry you can add to the design.
Here I am adding Pure Gold, Pearl Paint and Liquitex to a paper plate. Try to add equal amounts of each. Do not worry if you don't. It will work just fine.
Mix with a plastic spoon bottom.
Keep mixing until it is completely blended.
I attached the brayer's dot roller and I am running it through the paint to cover the dots.
I found it worked best to do this from both directions in the paint for the first coat.
Starting on the long edge, roll your paint on top of your paper. It will get lighter as you go.
Note: I like this technique best using 5 1/2" x 8 1/2 paper best as the dots are brighter.
After you roll the first roll, keep adding rolls of dots until your paper is covered.
I did 2 papers. One paper is with green dots and the other one has gold dots.
Note: The dots are going to have a pearl finish on them, which means they are shiny.
Here are all the papers I made with Acrylic paint including the dot papers.
I am going to show you how versatile these papers are. You can emboss them, dry emboss them, or stamp on them. They look great and can be used any way regular card stock can be used.
Gather your supplies. I cut the papers in half to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and into fourths to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" to emboss them.
Using an embossing ink pad (Versamark), I covered my stamp with the ink. Make sure it is covered very well so you get a good image.
Stamp your image all over your paper.
Sprinkle your embossing powder on your design and shake off into a paper plate or glitter tray that you use only for embossing powders.
Turn on your heat gun. Let it get hot and then heat your design just until it melts. It will look shiny.
If you are using a background stamp, turn your stamp up so that it is facing you. Stamp the ink pad down facing the stamp until the design is covered.
Press the stamp down holding a few seconds to make sure it adheres to the paper. Keep doing this until the paper is covered with the design.
Add your embossing powder and heat the paper, making sure you get all the design. You can tell by turning your paper so the light reflects on it. The gold will look shiny when it is embossed.
Now my paper is embossed with gold flecks.
Here are all the embossed papers I made.
Isn't this pretty? My steps will show other stamps and colors. I just wanted to show this to you.
Gather your supplies together. I chose mini stamps. My papers are 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Using a tiny flower stamp, I stamped red and rose flowers in random order on my paper. Be sure to clean your stamp between each color and when you finish with it. Baby wipes work great for this. I then use liquid soap and warm water just to be sure.
As you can see, I used green ink and a mini leaf stamp and I am now using blue ink and a tiny 3 line flower stamp.
I did this same design using the same inks on 2 different color backgrounds.
Here are all the stamped papers I made.
Dry embossing means you are using embossing folders to add a raised design to your paper.
I am using the Cuttlebug and embossing folders from different companies. They all work in each others machines. The Cuttlebug will only do up to 5" wide, but can do longer items.
Here I am using an A2 embossing folder. That means it will emboss a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of card stock.
Open your folder so that the side with the black writing is facing up. Then add your paper lining it up on the top and 2 sides.
Close the embossing folder. You should have the printed side of your paper showing under the side with the black writing on it as shown.
Now make a sandwich. Place your white thick A plate on the bottom. Next add one of your B plates. and then the embossing folder as shown.
Next add your second B plate on top.
Stick your sandwich in and begin rolling through.
Keep rolling until it comes out on the other side.
Here is the finished product.
It was hard to get good photos of the different designs I embossed. I added 3 photos trying to show them to you.
Now you are ready to start making cards. Here are the digis I used. I colored them with Copics. The digis are by Robyn's Fetish. They are "Lucky Leprechaun," "Gnome," "Happy Harry," "Over the Wall Puppy," "Ms. Cutie Bear," "Penelope Puppy," and "Peter da Puppy." You can find them here http://robynsfetish.com/shop
Here are three Easel Cards.
These cards are 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and 5" x 6 1/2".
St. Patrick's Day cards.
The St. Patrick's Day and Irish Melodies sentiments are by Create With TLC.
This is a tag. It is 3 1/2" x 5 1/2".
Tri- Shutter card.
Here are close ups of my poems I wrote for these images.
