Hello everyone ...!! So excited today because we at Peek-a-Boo Designs Blog are having a very fun Blog hop with our new Stamp release & new Monthly Challenge !! :)

So here is the challenge for this month --

The basic theme is ANYTHING GOES and there is a little twist to the same.You need to use an item from your OLD STASH and mix it with something you added RECENTLY PURCHASED. Yep we generally ignore our old supplies and on creating stuffs from the new ones. So here is the time open your old supplies .. remove that small amount of dust from them .. and create some awesome project combining them with new ones.

** Please go through all the Rules/Challenge Guidelines for entering your creations to the challenge !!

See What i created for Inspiration  ---

Steps on how i made this card -

  • Took a Neenah White Solar Card ...Stamped it with PABD Quilted Love BG Stamp with Pink Momento Ink & Distressed the whole card with Spun Sugar DI.
  • Then Placed a Die cut label Distressed in Tumbled glass DI and layered it with PABD Gold CS & Die cut oval label .
  • Stamped the Sentiment from PABD Positive Vibes Stamp Set.
  • Then i heat embossed the peonies in white from Peonies love Stamp Set & colored all the flowers & leafs using DI.
  • Arrange all the fussy cut flowers around the oval label & added a die cut flourish for extra interest. 
  • finally added some matte gold sequins here n there for finishing touch.

Black Magic Cards with Two Variations !!

Hi Friends...how you all are doing ?? Its Vijaylaxmi Siyal and sharing a very fun technique with two variations !!

So today's tutorial is based on Black Magic Technique !!

This summer is already very hot & killing us with the high temperature ..so i have one cool card too for you guys at the end of the post..but before that see my Black Magic .. ;p ..LOL.. Just kidding ;p

So now come back to the tutorial...here it is step - by - step --

1) Black Magic Technique With Emboss Resist & Black Ink -

Steps -

1) I used the following supplies for this technique -
- PABD Black Card Stock 
- PABD Swirly Lines BG Stamp
- PABD Bold Hugs 'n' Love Stamp Set
- PABD Acrylic Block 4*6"
- 3-4 Distress Inks
- Clear Embossing Powder
- Versa-Fine Watermark Ink
- Heat Gun
- Violet CS for the base
- Baby Wipes 

For this card i took a white cs of 4*4 " ...Distressed it with 3-4 colors of DI ...!!


2) Then i Took PADB Swirly Line BG Stamp & Using PABD Acryilic Block, Stamp it on the colored panel with Versa-fine Watermark Ink.

 3) Sprinkle Clear Embossing Powder & then Heat Set it !!

4) Now comes the fun part -- I took my Momento Dye Ink Pad & Rub that directly on the CS until it covered all the panel fully black ..!!

5) Then Using wet baby wipes i swipe off the Ink from the cs and there the magic happens..:) All the embossed area does not absorb the black ink and they came out clear and hence the color under them :)
Look how pretty the whole Background :)

5) I tried the same Technique with Versafine Onyx Black Ink & After wiping off the ink with baby wipe this was the result !! And i am not impressed with this one so chuck it..!! Versafine doesn't work for me :)

- Stamps Used For the above Card - 

2) Black Magic Technique With White Pigment Ink & Pencil colors -

Steps -
1) I used the following supplies for this technique -
- PABD Black Card Stock 
- PABD Peonies Love Stamp set
- PABD Acrylic Block 2*3"
- Pencil Colors 
- Colorbox white Pigment ink
- White CS for the base.

2) Stamped the solid peony with white Pigment ink on Black CS from PABD Peonies Love Stamp.

 3) This is how it looks after stamping the all elements. 

4) Start coloring using pencil colors only when your white Ink  dries completely...i didn't wait for its complete dry so did a mess ;p But no worries you can use black pencil color to cover all silly mistakes ..magicccc ;p

 5) Heat embossed the sentiment From PABD Awesomeness Stamp in white in center ...!! Taddaa..we are done ...mat it on the card stock with Silver glitter stripes on both sides & some blings for extra touch !! 

I hope you enjoyed this Tutorial & Do try any of these technique but don't forget to share with us !!
