Category Archives: Make it Monday
As you all know I love learning new techniques. I found this great tutorial on Nicole Heady’s blog for Make it Monday’s project this week and I definitely wanted to share it. It calls for using cover plate dies in a different way. Her recommendation was to offset the same die to create a shadow. Instead of doing that, I took the Center State Die cover plate and turned it upside down. I used Basic Grey’s “What’s Up” 6 x 6 pack and selected one solid and one with a design. The sentiment is “lots of love” from Paper Smooches cut on a Simon Says Stamp flag die. I colored it with copic markers in R05, R24 and R27, then covered it with wink of stella and ended it with diamond glaze from Judikins.
I like the way it came out – what do you think?
This weeks Make it Monday was a technique using the “insides” of your cover plate dies. Laurie Wilson does a video that shows you how to get these lined up perfectly using…..of all things…..Glad Press n seal wrap. It WORKS!!! The first card is the is simply Neenah Solar White over some Club Scrap card stock. The Wood focal point is painted with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Mica in Black Orchid. The second card uses Dylusions sprays over the Simon Says Stamp “Love My Alpha” Stencil. I hand drew the lines in the starburst using my copic 0.3 marker and the focal point A+ is also using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical’s in Bells of Ireland and backed with black paper.
Make it Monday Challenge: Use a Cover Plate
This is a cool technique I learned on Make it Monday for PaperTrey Ink. There is a video, but essentially, you emboss the sentiment, stamp multiple circle images on top of the embossed sentiment, then wipe away to reveal the sentiment. She calls for clear powder, which this is, however, next time I’d try white. My stamps are from Stamping Up and the sentiment from Paper Smooches.
