Belair Creative Cards class this month learns Black Ice Technique

This month at Belair we will be learning a new technique called Black Ice Technique.  A fellow Stampin Up demonstrator, Melissa Kerman came up with this idea.  Google her name and the term Black Ice Technique and you will find lots of inspiration.  You can see a blog post of hers here.  .

On my first card I have used a piece of silver foil cardstock.  Swiped the foil with black archival ink.  I have then stamped the flower in archival Black.  Heat set.  I have applied versamark straight over the top and then added embossing powder over the top.  Heat set.  The flower has then been coloured with Stampin Blends.  Add more versamark and clear embossing powder and heat set again.  Layer on a piece of black mat.  Layer on the base which os soft sky.


My second card is a variation.  On a piece of foil card, apply ink as on our first card.  Emboss with the flowers from petal pairs textured impressions embossing folder.  Swipe the archival Black pad over the raised image.  Apply the versamark over the top and add clear embossing powder.  I just love the way this has turned out.  Layer on basic black and then on a whisper white base.  The greeting is from Beautiful Day stamp set.

Birthday Blooms

Have I told you that birthday blooms is one of my favourite stamp sets.  I just love the flower in this set, it is so pretty.  

This card is coloured using the Stampin Blends, I have used the pool party and marina mist for the flower and the leaves were coloured using old olive.  The flower is layered on a piece of glossy card which has had brusho sprinkled on and spritzed.  Greeting is from You're Inspiring stamp set.

The flower on this card is watercoloured using calypso coral and melon mambo.  Leaves are coloured using old olive.  The base is pear pizzazz and top layer is melon mambo.  I have used the sweet soiree decorative masks and the shimmery white embossing paste.

Beautiful Day on glossy cardstock

I love the effect of emboss resist on glossy card!!  My first card I have stamped using white craft Ink the flower from the beautiful day stamp set.  I then have done the polished stone technique on the card using Isocol.  My base card is soft sky, and have stamped the flower to match up with the flower on the glossy cardstock.  I love the two tone this gives.  

The second card is a variation of the first card.

My third card I used sponges to ink up the glossy card, using tempting turquoise, pool party and marina mist.  I then stamped with versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I stamped the flower on whisper white using memento ink and cut it out using the brother scan'n'cut machine.  Greeting on all three cards is from You're Inspiring stamp set.
