Scatter Kindness...

Hi Fans!!
Can you believe it's November already??? Xmas is coming - Bah Humbug!!
Today I am sharing a couple of super quick cards using Gelatos and of course Sin City Stamps!!
Hint: You could adapt these for Xmas Cards too by using Xmas Sentiments and Images!!


Supplies:
  • Sin City Stamp Set: Dandelion Wishes with Butterflies 
  • White Base Card
  • Embossing Ink
  • Clear Embossing Powder
  • Heat Gun
  • Gelatos
  • Water Spritzer
  • Black Archival Ink
  • Baby Wipe/Paper Towel

Instructions:
As always gather up your crafty goodies as listed above so everything is at hand and because these are quick and easy have several base cards so you can make multiple and have stock on hand!!


Firstly get your plain white base card and your embossing ink pad and stamp the dandelion multiple times at the bottom of the card. Stamp at different "heights" for better effect! Emboss with your clear embossing powder using your heat gun.


Choose two co-ordinating Gelato colours and colour the bottom half of the card as shown below.


Spritz with water and use your finger to rub and blend the colours to the card and "up" from the bottom as shown below.


Use a baby wipe or paper towel to "rub" away the colour from the embossed images and smooth the colour out.


Last step is to use a sentiment form the stamp set and stamp in the top corner with black Archival ink.


Hope you have enjoyed this easy tutorial - great to make multiple cards at once and also great for absolutely any occasion and minimal supplies needed!!!!
Hope you can have a try and share with us at our fun Facebook Group!!!
Have a great crafting and stamping week!
