I love learning new techniques and working with new products. When Fun Stampers Journey introduced their Liquid Colors last year, I was intrigued by them and the more and more I use them, I just love them.
A few weeks ago I participated in a craft retreat. Here is one of the projects we made using Liquid Color.
A piece of Summer Days (CS-0033) was embossing using the Corrugated Board Embossing Folder (EF-0017). The Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) was used to cut the Butterfly out of the embossed piece. Then on a piece of Whip Cream (CS-004) card stock, one of the Butterfly images from the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) was stamped in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041). The image was colored in using a Blending Brush (TO-0097 and TO-0098) and Liquid Color.
The card was made into a shaker card, you can use a Clear View sheet (CS-0121) or we made a pouch that was made out of a small plastic bag. Special Celebrations (AC-0115) were added to make the shaker elements.
Foam Squares (AD-0085) were used to pop up the corrugated piece onto the Whip Cream card base.
The sentiment was stamped in Black Licorice ink on Whip Cream cardstock and I fussy cut it out but there is a coordinating die in the bundle that you can use as well. The sentiment was popped up using Foam Squares (AD-0084).
Our Liquid Colors are simply amazing to color with. They are available for purchase individually. You can save some money by purchasing the original 12 colors as Bundle (BD-0303) and then adding on the remaining colors [Watermelon Fusion (IP-0142), Lavender Fusion (IP-0141) and Cool Pool (IP-0140)] that were added throughout the year.
May all your handmade creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.
The Vintage Sound (SS-0328) and Dude Ranch Bundle (BD-0281) make a great combination.
I stamped the guitar from the Vintage Sound stamp set with Cocoa Powder Ink (IP-0016) onto a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock (CS-0040) that is 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″. The music notes came from the same stamp set and were stamped in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink. Yee Haw came from the Dude Ranch Bundle (you can buy the stamp set and dies separately or buy them as a bundle and save some $ to spend on other treasures). I stamped the Yee Haw in Oatmeal Cookie Ink (IP-0011).
I took a piece of Denim Days cardstock (CS-0082) that was 4″ x 5 1/4″ and embossed it using the Corrugated Board Embossing Folder (EF-0017). I popped up the Whip Cream card base onto the embossed piece of Denim Days and adhered that to a Whip Cream card base that is 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″. I added some Turbo Teal Silk (IP-0119) and Silver Silk (IP-0090) to the card front.
I used Dark Roast Ink (IP-0050) to stamp the cowboy hat from the Dude Ranch Bundle onto Hazelnut Blend Cardstock (CS-0013) and cut it out using the coordinating die. Then I stamped Happy Birthday (from that same bundle) using Denim Days Ink (IP-0010) onto a piece of Whip Cream cardstock and flagged the end. I had an piece of Corrugated Cardstock (ST-0124) and flagged the end as well and popped those up onto the card front. Added some Journey Natural Twine (AC-0005) and popped up the cowboy hat over that with Foam Squares (AD-0085).
I couldn’t stop there, I had to use the boots from the Dude Ranch Bundle and decided to stamp those on the inside using Cocoa Powder Ink. I thought the saying from the Adventure Awaits (SS-0334) stamp set went perfectly with the card. That was stamped using Cocoa Powder ink as well.
I hope you have a Yee Haw day!!!
