How would you like to learn a fun background sponging technique? It’s SUPER easy! Appealing, right? This short video from Close To My Heart will show you how to achieve a really fun effect on your projects. You really only need a few supplies: a sponge, stencil sheets (to create your own custom stencil) or a purchased stencil and some inks.
Check out this quick tutorial on how to easily sponge backgrounds on your layouts!✨#ctmh #closetomyheart #sponging #scrapbooking #stamping #papercraft
Have you ordered your Heart Happy Paper yet? I am in LOVE with all the designs in this paper pack! It’s actually sad that these papers are only going to be available through February (or while supplies last!)
Today’s card is another quick card design with a simple technique to add a special touch to it. To achieve the Ombre Effect, ink up your stamp image as usual and then stamp it on a piece of scratch paper (this would become Second Generation Stamping if you then stamped the lighter tone on your project.) Before stamping it on your project, re-ink the bottom portion of your sentiment. Then stamp it as desired on your project. Simple, right?
The nice thing about this technique is that you don’t need to limit yourself to one color as I did in this card. You could use 2 similar shades to get another fun effect. And with 40 colors offered by Close To My Heart, you’re sure to find the perfect shades for your project. To see all 40 colors offered, visit my ONLINE CTMH STORE.
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope whether you spend your day with friends or family (or both!) that your soul is filled with joy and gratitude.
I made these fun treat holders for my kids as well as my niece and nephews. They are always fun to make. Plus, they work for any occasion and are quite simple to make. I did a Triangle Treat Box tutorial that takes you through the process of creating one step-by-step that you can reference to create your own.
