We’re posting today to show you what we created using the NEW Perfect Paper Crafting Mini Tools and the NEW Perfect Cutting Mat! (use Sparks5% at checkout for 5% off your order)
I have a bunch of cards to show you so I better get started! You know me… I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Perfect Layers Tools and NOW we have NEW Mini tools and an AWESOME NEW Cutting Mat! I love this mat… it is different than other mats! It has just the right amount of softness to it… so different than all the hard, hard, mats we’ve been using. I love how the craft knife works on it and you can hardly see any cut marks! It’s the perfect size for card-making and so are the new mini rulers.
Fabulous products to save card makers time! That is a BIG plus for me! No more trimming, measuring, trimming, measuring, trimming, measuring, to get the right mat size! YAY!
On my first card, I used the ⅛ inch and ¼ inch ruler and Printworks NEW Spring Release rubber stamps. They come in CLING HERE and mounted on WOOD HERE. (use the code “PAM2014” for 5% off your order total)
I was so excited at how this card turned out. I stamped in Archival Coffee stamp ink on Canson watercolor paper. I painted in the grass and the little bit of yellow with Distress Markers, using them like watercolor.
I edged the piece with Tumbled Glass distress ink and the ink blending tool and then flicked water on it.
Here’s a close up…
Here’s the NEW sentiment I stamped with Versafine Onyx Black on the inside. The flower is colored in with a white gel pen.
Here’s a pretty Spring card with the NEW Tulip Umbrella stamp and Spring Blessings sentiment stamp…
For this card, I used the ⅜ inch ruler to add the polka dot mat. So easy with the new mini size ruler. They make me happy!
Then on the inside I used another new sentiment from Printworks…stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
I have a tip for you… did you notice the top layer of my card matches up to the card base layer in the top left corner? This slant type card is really popular right now, so I thought, why not! Then it was like, oh, well, I want the layers to fit together perfectly, what can I do?! Did you guess? I use my stamp a ma jig ALL the time! YES! It works perfect! Another awesome tool! I took a picture so you could see what I mean. Lay the card base in the angle of the stamp a ma jig, then lay the top piece right in on top and it’s perfect. I did use mounting squares on the image piece.
One more thing to make me very happy! YAY!
The Tulip Umbrella is stamped with Ranger Archival Black ink on Canson 90# watercolor paper. I wanted a similar white for the card base, so I used Strathmore Bristol card from a pad for it. I watercolored the image with Distress Markers.
***Linking up to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – Anything Goes
Do I dare post another card?! So many cute new stamps from Printworks! Here’s a cute bunny card! I used the 1/16th inch and 3/8th inch ruler to mat the image. Then I positioned it on the card and used the 3/8th inch ruler again for the sides.
I stamped the NEW Carrot Name Tag stamp and NEW thanks with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers. The background is Tumbled Glass Distress ink applied with the ink blending tool.
Darling image and wouldn’t it be so cute for place cards at your big Easter Dinner! Just put the name where the ‘thanks’ is. Cute!
Copics – green YG00, 13, 17; orange YR00, 02, 04, 07, 09; bunny E40, 41,42 and R81,83,85
