Emerging Corners Technique Cards

A friend on Facebook posted a link to this fun and unique stamping technique video by Melanie M.

As soon as I finished watching the video, I knew I had to try it.

I inked the stamp with a combo of Faded Jeans and Broken China Distress Oxide inks. Once the images were stamped, I spritzed the paper with a bit of water to activate the inks.

The smaller stamped panel was created after I misted the already used stamp with water and impressed it onto the panel twice. This created a second and third generation of the stamped image.

I used only Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink for the Wild Rose oval stamped image below.
The Dk. Purple paper was dry embossed in a folder and then inked with the same Distress Oxide ink to color the raised pattern. The panel was then misted with water prior to card assembly.

Supplies Used:
Club Scrap Garden Shed, Wild Rose, Stamped Bouquet and Stamping Star UM Rubber stamps
Distress Oxide inks - Wilted Violet, Broken China, Faded Jeans, Worn Lipstick, Cracked Pistachio, and Fossilized Amber
Lt. Blue paper from stash
Club Scrap Dk. Purple paper
Club Scrap Dahlia washi tape goodie
Club Scrap Darice Tin Tiles embossing folder goodie

Club Scrap Delft Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap March Blog Hop featuring the Delft kit. If you have arrived from the super creative Roni's Inkstains Blog then you are in the right place. If not, hop back to Karen's post at the Club Scrap Blog to see a complete list of all the talented bloggers.

I chose to create a mini album with gorgeous papers and goodies from the Club Scrap Delft Deluxe kit.

Each signature is scored and nested one on top of the other. They are then attached to the spine with Bookbinding Glue. I die cut the Lt. Blue photo mat with a Sizzix Mixed Media 2 Thinlit and layered it with the Dk. Blue panel. I love how this die matches this kit perfectly!

I adorned the outside of the album with paper flowers.

The spine paper is stamped with the broken tile and crackle images from the Delft Jumbo UM set in Fossilized Amber and Broken China Distress Oxide Inks. Lightly misting the images with water activates the inks to oxidize and makes the images pop!

Scroll to the end of the blog for details on how this project came together.

Up next on the hop is Tina's Finding Your Niche Blog.

March Technique Challenge - Club Scrap

Visit the Club Scrap Blog where Tina is hosting this month's Technique Challenge and Linky Party!

Here is just one of Tina's beautiful cards.

I created a unique background with Ranger's new Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks. I used Fossilized Amber, Broken China and Faded Jeans.

Spritz the broken tile image stamp from Club Scrap's Delft Jumbo UM set lightly with water. Stamp directly onto the inked background. This will lift off some of the inks on the panel.

Stamp off the image onto a white piece of paper for a bonus image.

Create a card with the distressed panel.

Cut the panel so that it will fit onto a 4x5.25" Delft Lt. Blue mat on a Medium Blue card base. The resulting space is the perfect spot for a sentiment!

Thanks for stopping by!
