Smooshing Background Enveloper Birthday Card

I have tried the smooshing technique before, and I am never totally satisfied with my results. I was inspired by this Taylored Expressions blog post to try again.

I used Distress Ink pads, so my color tended to stay linear (pad edges).

I was encouraged enough by this to want to try it again, maybe with watercolor paint or ink pad reinkers.

No jury duty today – the recorded message indicated no one was to report.

Supplies: Stamps – Papertrey Ink, Waffle Flower, paper – Canson watercolor, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Taylored Expressions Jelly Donut, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, Shaded Lilac, Spun Sugar, Wilted Violet, VersaMark, die – Taylored Expressions, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail Gold, organdy ribbon – Offray.


Distress Ink Enveloper Note Cards

I had my Waffle Flower Enveloper Little Birdie stamp set out, and I have been wanting to just use ink on it (no embossing powder, no hand coloring, no painting).

The “possibilities” card is regular Distress inks, the “thanks” card is Distress Oxide inks. I used my MISTI, and cleaned the stamp between ink colors. The ink blending happened on the paper, not on the stamp.

Supplies: Stamps – Simon Says Stamp, Waffle Flower, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, inks – Hero Arts Unicorn, Tim Holtz/Rander Distress Inks Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Oxide inks Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Squeezed Lemonade, VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powders – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Stampendous Detail clear, organdy ribbon – Offray.
