Something Special with Chrissie Tobas

Hi there! Chrissie here today! I’m here to share a beautiful spring inspired card I created using products from the All That Jazz Release!

Chrissie Tobas Blog Post Card To start, create a card base by cutting a piece of white cardstock to 4.25 x 11 and scoring it at 5.5 inches.  Also trim another piece of white cardstock to 4 x 5.25 inches.  This will become the front panel of the card.  Place this panel down onto a protected surface and place the GeoTrio Stencil (Chevron design) over it on the left side.

Secure both the panel and stencil down with washi or repositionable tape.  Using an Ink Blending Tool, add the Shea Butter ink.  Add more ink at the top to create an ombre effect.  Pull off the stencil and add more of the Shea Butter ink to the front panel.  To finish off the background of this panel, add some of the Rose Petal Ink to a stamp block.  Pull color off of the block using a waterbrush and flick the color onto the panel.  Allow it to dry.

Stamp the rose from the Grateful Heart Stamp Set in Watermark Ink on Vellum.  Heat emboss it with white powder.  Flip it over and color in on the back using Spectrum Noir Graphic Markers.  Once it is colored in, die cut the flower using the coordinating die cut.  By coloring on the back, the colors still show through, but they are soft and muted.

To finish the card, assemble it.  Use foam squares to place the panel on the card base.  Adhere the vellum with a tape runner (the coloring from the markers should hide the adhesive).

That’s it! Isn’t it easy peasy to create a spring inspired card? The layers of detail in the background (stencil, ink and splatters) really compliment the the stamped image on the vellum.  Thank you so much Catherine for letting me guest on your blog today!
