Good morning! Ardyth here with this week’s Light Bulb Moment! This week’s card uses Distress Inks in two different ways – blended and watercoloured. I started by using two of the edge dies included in Card Front Element Builder to create a wave shape out of watercolour cardstock. I blended 3 colours of Distress Inks on the wave and then spritzed it with water to create texture and interest. Next, I stamped some of the otters from Otterly Adorable with… Read more »

 Good morning! Ardyth here with this week’s Light Bulb Moment! I love to look at my stamps and dies and try to think of different ways to use them. This rainbow (from Whatever the Weather SugarCuts) makes a perfect circular backrop for my sparkly thanks sentiment. I started by cutting the rainbow twice. Instead of cutting from coloured cardstock, I cut from white and then coloured the strips with Copic markers. To make it easier to position all those little… Read more »

Good morning! Ardyth here with this week’s Light Bulb Moment! Here’s a simple way to add shine and dimension to your stamped images. I started with this coffee-bean heart and stamped it with dark brown ink, using a MISTI. I then cleaned my stamp and restamped it with Versamark ink, before sprinkling clear embossig powder over top and heating it until it was melted and shiny. Then I put the panel back into my MISTI and stamped again with Versamark… Read more »

Good morning! Ardyth here with this week’s Light Bulb Moment! I made a set of cards using a simple trick for getting a different look from a simple background stamp. I started with the heart background stamp from Build A Background – Basics (it’s on sale right now!): Those little hearts have a lot of space between them. In fact, they have enough space to stamp more hearts! It’s simple – you stamp the image once, then line up the… Read more »

Good morning! Ardyth here with this week’s Light Bulb Moment – a dramatic, frosty Christmas card using one of our newest sets, Flurry of Warm Wishes. These snowflakes are delicate and elegant and just cry out for a dark background full of interest. I played around with some water-based markers and smooth Bristol cardstock to make one. I grabbed 5 different blue markers and got started with the darkest, drawing 4 small dots down the panel. With the next darkest,… Read more »

Good morning! Ardyth here with this week’s Light Bulb Moment!  My card this week is a sparkly, monochrome forest created with some inlaid die cuts. I started by cutting several strips about 2.5″ x 5.5″. I cut each one using the TreeScape Sugarcut and separating the top from the the bottom. I started with the top of one of the white strips and laid the light grey die cut into it. I taped each layer in place so that my… Read more »
