You're Fabulous

Hello everyone, it's Merlina here sharing a card with one layer technique.
Here are some steps to make this card :
1. Prepare cardstock, colored-image, and stencil you want to use. For this card, I used image from Winter-fairies stamp, Fancy-frame-dies, and Sorted-shapes-1-stencil
2. Pick up ink from Distress Oxide Pad using a sponge or a foam blending tool. Working in circular motions, apply ink to the surface, blending the inks as you go. I used Distress-oxide-cracked-pistachio and Distress-oxide-worn-lipstick for this card.
3. Add a sentiment on it. I used Tiny-sentiments for this card.
4. Finally, add a colored-image on it.

Happy crafting !!

You're Pawsome

Hello everyone,
It's Merlina here, just stopping by to share a card with mirror-stamping techniques.


These are some steps to make reverse-image :
Ink up the stamp and stamp it onto an acrylic block (if you use a stamp positioner, you can repeat 2 or 3 times onto an acetate to make the image sharper)
Then, stamp the block onto a piece of paper.


As there are so many mirror stamping techniques, and I think not all images can be made to reverse-image, there are some tips to consider :
- The reverse-image will be a second generation stamped image, so the ink will be lighter than the original, so it will be better for reflection and shadow.
- You can stamp the second generation image with any media, such as plain rubber stamp, acrylic block, or acetate, however a stamp positioner will be more helpful to transfer image easier, as you can stamp several time onto the same positon.
- Slow drying ink will also help to transfer image

Our Friendship is the Best Adventure

Hi everyone, it's Merlina here with a card to share.
Today I made a waterfall card, featuring Get Wild Stamp Set




 Firstly, cut the base of the card with Hip-hip-hooray-paper-pad, and also 4 small pieces for the images (the green and yellow) using Fancy-frame-dies.
Then cut a strip (orange) for waterfall effect  2"x9", score at 2", 2,75", 3,5", and 4,25" and make it like the picture below :

Then prepare the images and paste on the 4 small pieces.
Put the first piece to the bottom, then the second one, and do for the rest.
Put ribbon to make it easy when you pull the card.
