Cracked Glass Technique Card

11_18 005 copy

I was inspired by a card I saw using this stamp set and cracked glass technique. For my card, I used Very Vanilla card stock and the Leaves Awash Jumbo Wheel with Chocolate Chip ink. Then, I colored in the leaves with the Aquapainter and various colors of Classic ink pads.

Next, I followed the directions for the cracked glass technique and covered the entire surface of the card stock with Versamark and Glassy Glaze. I heat embossed the Glassy Glaze and repeated the steps 2 more times. As per the directions, I put the paper in the freezer and then cracked it in various places.

After that, I ran the card stock through the Big Shot using the Top Note Die. Please make sure your layers of glassy glaze are “dry” or “frozen” enough or bits of it will get stuck in your Top Note die!

To finish off the card, I added Circle Rhinestone Brads with the cropadile and mounted the very vanilla top note to the base with dimensionals. The sentiment is from Note of Thanks Mini Note Kit. I colored in part of the image with my Dusty Durango Marker and stamped it on Very Vanilla, punched it out with the Large Oval Punch, sponged some Creamy Caramel ink on top, then mounted it on a Chocolate Chip Scallop Oval Punch, attached with dimensionals.

More Colors, More Leaves

It must be pretty obvious by now that I LOVE this tree from Season of Friendship. Instead of using the leaves that come with the set, I decided to try this large leaf image from Autumn Harvest and it worked pretty well.

The card base is Chocolate chip textured card stock, layered with DSP from Autumn Vines DSP. The image layer is Whisper White, with a chipboard frame underneath. I covered the chipboard with Pumpkin Pie craft ink and then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder.

I stamped the images in Basic Brown ink and watercolored the leaves with my Aquapainter and the following ink pads: Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, Creamy Caramel, and Kiwi Kiss.

With the cropadile, I punched a large hole in the chipboard and put in an eyelet from Hooray kit. Then I looped a piece of 5/8″ Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon through and tied it with Hemp Twine.

It’s Time to be Thankful

It’s totally by coincidence that I made this card last week using Autumn Vines DSP and SU just announced an Inventory Blowout Sale that included this DSP! I think this has been one of the best DSPs of all time, especially since it coordinates with another one of my all time faves–Season of Friendship stamp set.

Card base is Chocolate Chip, layered with the beautiful Autumn Vines DSP. Then, I used another sheet of DSP (really rust polka dot) and ran it through the Top Note die. Around the bottom of the Top Note I tied a piece of 5/8″ Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon and attached it to the base using dimensionals.

The stamped image, from Season of Friendship was inked up with More Mustard for the tree and Sage Shadow for the leaves. I stamped it on Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out using a Mega Circle Punch. Then, I layered that circle onto a larger chocolate chip Giga Scalloped Circle Punch, attaching it to the base with dimensionals.

Finally, the sentiment is from Very Thankful, and I used my Sage Shadow Marker to just ink up the words, stamped it on Very Vanilla card stock, punched it out with the Word Window Punch and layered it on a chocolate chip Modern Label.
