3-for-1 Backgrounds with Tasha

Hey crafty people!
Tasha here with a super efficient ink blended background idea for getting two, or even three, backgrounds from one quick crafty session and a die cut mask. I'm also showing off the new Beary Wishes stamp set from October's launch, which is just so adorable!! 
Making The BackgroundsI started by die cutting a heart from an a2 panel of some inexpensive cardstock I have in my stash. (I use this because it's thicker so it can take a heavier layer of ink without it bleeding through onto your card panel.)
This gives you two pieces, we'll call these a stencil & a mask, with the heart being the mask and the panel it was cut from becoming a stencil. Background Number 1
I used some low tack tape to attach the stencil onto an a2 panel of Neenah 80lb, just wrapping the tape over the edge of the two panels. This gives you a perfectly positioned heart stencil to ink blend over!
I used Tangy Orange dye ink in the center of the heart and Imperial Red around the edges t…

Floral card and underwater scene card - - Dhruvika

Hello Crafty Folks..I hope you are having a great time with our latest October release and with so many inspirations..My first card is a clean and simple floral card using the Tubby Craft Bloom Stamp. This is a beautiful stamp with an Iris flower and a bud. Let's have a look at the card first. 
For this card, I stamped the flowers on the water color paper and colored it using the water colors from my stash. After I was satisfied with the water coloring I fussy cut the image and kept it aside. Then I stamped the doodled vertical lines on a side folding note card measuring 4.25x 5.5 inches Neenah solar white  cardstock. To add a little drama I changed the green pigment to the lightest available in my stash to color the doodled leaves. I splattered some watercolour using black and ripe plum water color on the background for the added interest. I then pasted the fussy cut flowers on the cardstock using the 3D foam tape.I gold heat embossed the sentiments from the same stamp set SENDING…


Hi everyone, Anirudh this side and today I have two amazing techniques using stencils.I'm featuring the latest Tubby Craft October release stencil - Foliage 1.Have a look at the creations...
The video tutorial is linked below Two amazing stencil techniques
The products used would be listed at the end of this post.Let's check out the techniques one-by-one;Technique 1: Stencil Resist This is such an easy technique but the impact is high.I started by using a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of cardstock and covered it with Raspberry dye ink directly onto the paper.Then I placed the latest Foliage 1 stencil over this inked paper and sprayed it generously with water.Using a tissue, I wiped the water away and as these are dye inks, they react with water and get lighter in those areas.Now, I used a heat tool to speed things up and this gave a beautiful background.I simply added die-cut sentiments and a few hearts to complete the card.Here's a close-up of the beautiful background;
Technique 2: Par…
