Over at Try Stampin on Tuesday we are doing a Stitching challenge for the month of October. My latest stitching has been to make different cross stitch patterns on cards with the help of my Paper Smooches Cross Stitch Die. Here is one of the many cards I have done. More on my IG @kraftykaylin
Used the idea from Gina K’s wreath builder to make the flower wreaths. With the addition of the lovely paper and some Nuvo Drops for accents.
Stamps: May May Made It – Garden Party, Stampin Up – Beautiful Bouquet | Distress Oxide: Dried Marigold, Peeled Paint, Fired Brick, Fossilized Amber, Cracked Pistachio | Dies: Stephanie Bernard – Border Dies
I dont use Nuvo drops or Stickles very much but I received a bottle in my DT package. I wanted to figure out a way to use them differently from just adding dots to something as an accent.
The first thing I tried was using it like embossing paste. Unfortunately it is just a little too liquid and caused me to rip the paper when i pulled the stencil off. But the ones that turned out crisp did have great dimension. I even tried paper that could take more moisture but it still ripped.
So I decided to use a make up sponge to add the drops through the stencil. Not all of them were crisp. but this worked better and left the panel with lovely texture from the sponge.
Here is my finished card with the panel with Nuvo drops sponged through the stencil. This at least didnt rip the paper.
