Inks Distress Oxide and blending brushes

Memento tuxedo black ink

Versafine ink

Heat gun

To start with I inked up my stamps and stamped out my images onto a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm. I then used my copic markers to colour them in before die cutting them out.

I then made my card base using a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and my card front. With my card front I started by picking up some ink with my blending brush and gently applying this to the top edge of my card. I went down about halfway of my card panel.

I then used some yellow ink and my blending brush and applied this to the bottom of the card.

I then used some more White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and die cut my milkshake die. Using some ink and copic markers I coloured up the milkshake die.

Using another piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm I went ahead and die cut some lollipops, I added colour to these with my inks and blending brushes. You don’t need a lot of ink to get them colourful so it’s always best to start gently then you can add more if needed.

I placed my card panel onto my card base once all the ink was dry, I then added the stamped images and sweets. For my greeting I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Red Plain Card 240gsm and using white embossing powder I heat set the sentiment and trimmed this out and added this to my card. Your card is now complete.
