Welp here they are. These are my 2014 Founders Circle Swaps. I really think they turned out great. I absolutely love the Holiday Home stamp set and Framelits. They are adorable. I’ve seen so many cute things done with this stamp set. I am really hoping to do a few of them in the coming weeks.
Here is my video.
Tips & Tricks
- Sponging: I don’t show it in the video but using a sponge in a swirling motion is a great way to add texture and color to white card stock. Or even color card stock. You just dip the sponge directly into your ink pad and then use a swirling motion over your card stock.
- Gold Encore Ink: I would suggest using your heat tool on the Gold Encore Ink and the Silver for that matter. They don’t set up very well on their own and need a little help.
- Make a Scene: No, don’t throw a fit. I mean, make a scene with our cards. sometimes when I am creating a card I am not always trying to convey something visual, sometimes I am trying to convey a feeling. That is what I was trying to do with this card. You know at the beginning of fall when it is still warm out, but not hot, and the leaves have fallen and the world seems still and quiet in the mornings and the air is crisp. I love that time of year. I tried to make this card feel like that time of year. Sometimes when you are creating close your eyes and think about how something feels and then try to convey that through your work. It’s fun to do. Takes some practice but you’ll get there.
