Hello everyone, Richard here!
I just couldn’t wait to share our new products with you. Last Friday, we published the link to our brand new beautiful 2017-2018 Inspiration Book & Catalog. Today, we play. I’ll show you how to use our new dye-based Liquid Colors to create a gorgeous background for your handmade card.
Since I know you are going to absolutely love these Liquid Colors – I added a Liquid Color Bundle in the catalog for you to grab all 12 at a reduced bundle price. These colors are perfect for our new Create-a-Palette Ink Pad. However, today we are going to use them on their own without the Ink Pad. Starting July 1, you can grab the Liquid Color Bundle or individual colors, and Create-a-Palette Ink Pad, that coordinate with the FSJ color family. See page 304 of the new 2017-2018 catalog for details.
You’ll need the following supplies:Flower Swirls Stamp Set SS-0454*| Chosen Family Stamp Set SS-0458*| Journey Circles Die Set DI-0039| Lemon Drop Liquid Color IP-0132| Banana Cream Liquid Color IP-0127| Sparkle Silk IP-0126| Rich Coral True Color Fusion Ink Pad IP-0052| Rich Coral Cardstock CS-0093| Whip Cream Cardstock CS-0040| Summer Burst Buttons AC-0286| Licorice Twist Journey Twine AC-0267| Candy Apple Satin Ribbon AC-0145| Sparkle Cuts AC-0151| Journey Glaze AD-0002
*The featured project includes two stamp sets that will officially be available for purchase July 1. Put them on your wish list now to create the card as designed, or use any FSJ bloom and sentiment stamps to make it your own.
Step 1: Stamp images from the Flower Swirls Stamp Set onto a Whip Cream Cardstock panel. Alternate the images for a fun background. Note: Our Journey Coaches received this super cute stamp set at Convention. You may purchase this one starting July 1.
Step 2: Apply drops of Banana Cream and Lemon Drop Liquid Colors onto a Clear Block. Add water to your mixture. Then crumble up a ball of kitchen plastic wrap and dab it into the color.
Step 3: Use the plastic wrap as a sponge and dab the color onto your cardstock. The plastic wrap allows you to add the color to the cardstock while giving it texture at the same time.
Step 4: Complete your project. Add your favorite sentiment. Make your project sparkle with a dash of Sparkle Silk, a bit of Journey Sparkle Cuts, and a Summer Burst Button.
