Teal Snowflakes

Hello! August's Color of the Month as per Imagine is Teal. Teal is my favorite color, so I was very excited to use it as a focal color.

Truth be told, I don't own a ton of teal ink, so I pulled out what I had to help me decide what I was going to make. I have Teal Blue StazOn, so that was my starting point. I've been playing a lot with photo paper lately, so I decided that would be one of the materials I worked with as well.

I applied the StazOn to the photo paper by rubbing it across the surface. There's a few residual drops of old irRESISTable paint on my craft mat, so the ink picked those spots up (as you would get from a rubbing), which I liked.

Then I applied drops of StazOn Cleaner to the surface of the photo paper. I let that sit for a few minutes, then I dabbed it up with a paper towel. I also lightly buffed the paper to further remove the ink from where the cleaner was.

Another teal ink that I have is Teal Zeal from the Memento line. I used this along with some pretty snowflakes and stamped them all over the photo paper.

I wanted to be able to get two cards out of this one piece of photo paper, so I placed my card base under the paper, and drew a line where I wanted to cut the piece apart. I also chose to use this pretty Turquoise Double Dot paper.

I trimmed down my assorted pieces and laid them out on the card. Then I chose my sentiment, stamped it in Teal Zeal, and die cut it. I also sprayed it with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle. You can see in the above photo the nice big piece of photo paper that I can use on another card.

I glued down all of my layers and added some opalescent teal sequins with On Point Glue.

That's my card for today! I hope you will pull out your own teal inks and play along with the Imagine team. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
