Hello! It's Sara, from Much Love Sara. I'm here to share three cards with you, that are all variations using a fun technique. Each card uses the new Never Faked a Sarcasm Stamp Set, the Flowers Stencil, and Paper Glazes - and the colors of the glazes are custom blended!
One of the great features that Nicole - Picket Fence Studios Owner - has pointed out about Paper Glaze, is that, while there may only be 13 colors in the official product line up, you can use those 13 colors to create your own custom colors of Paper Glaze. That idea really appealed to me, so prior to the quarantine situation we are in now, I had collected several paint color samples from various home improvement stores - with the idea that I could use those to create colors to match.
I set up my work surface with a mixing tray, my Paper Glazes, a palette knife, and a few baby wipes. The recipes for each color shared below are approximate. Don't let that scare you though - it is easy to make adjustments by adding a bit more of any color.
I mixed the "Blue Slumber" color first. I added the colors, one at a time to my mixing tray, wiping off the palette knife between colors, to prevent mixing colors in my jars. Once I was happy with how my color was mixed, I taped an A2 sized piece of white card stock to my work surface, and then taped the Flowers Stencil over the top of that. I applied the Paper Glaze to the card stock from the top left corner down. Then, I removed and cleaned my stencil, palette knife, and mixing tray before the glaze could harden. Once the stenciling was dry, I heat embossed my chosen sentiment from the Never Faked a Sarcasm Stamp Set, onto gray card stock, and cut that into a banner shape. Each layer was adhered to a white top folding card base, using foam tape. I added a few self-adhesive gold pieces for accent.
For this second card (and my personal favorite!), I blended the Powder Peach color together, and applied it with the Flowers Stencil to the whole A2 sized piece of card stock. I trimmed the panel down once it was dry, and added a heart cut from gold foil card stock, along with my heat embossed sentiment strip. Again, the panel was adhered to the card base with foam tape, and the self adhesive gold pieces were added.
The final card, I have to share with you today, was created with this Asparagus color glaze. I applied this to an A2 sized piece of card stock with the Flowers Stencil, and once it was dry, I trimmed the piece down, and used a hill die to add shape to the bottom of the panel. The sentiment was heat embossed onto light green card stock, and the pieces were added to a white card base with liquid glue. More gold pieces finished off the card.
