It's time for my weekly video series, It's In The Details, for the Waffle Flower Inspiration Team. Every Friday I will share a new video featuring amazing Waffle Flower Stamps and Dies.
The new Inkylicious Ink Duster is perfect for applying ink to smooth cardstock (even those tricky dye inks!). If you're like me and don't always like the way foam applicators apply inks to cardstock, I encourage you to try the new Ink Dusters. They are phenomenal and I am ordering more because I love them so much!
The Tonic Studio Nuvo Crystal Drops are a fun way to add interest to the stamped images as well as great for adding color to the dimensional die cut greetings. Adding Glossy Accents over dimensional greetings is one of my favorite techniques but I can see that using the Nuvo Crystal Drops is going to be my new favorite!
I stamped and embossed images from the Enveloper Kindness, Enveloper Hello, and a greeting from the Congrats Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossing with white embossing powder.
Instead of foam blending tool, I used a new Inkylicious Ink Duster to apply the Waffle Flower Oh Happy Day, Chirp Chirp, and New Fish In Pond over the embossed areas for embossed resist. The Ink Duster makes applying the ink smoothly without blotches SO super easy! It’s a fantastic way to create some great effects with dye inks.
Nuvo Crystal Drops are a quick and effective way to embellish the stamped and embossed images on these birthday greeting cards. Drops of all sizes can be created with the Nuvo drops and they add a bit of dimension, lots of color and so much interest to these images! I used the Nuvo Crystal Drops in Caribbean Ocean, Apple Green, and Ripened Pumpkin. The Nuvo drops work a lot like Glossy Accents as well. A dimensional greeting die cut from cardstock adhered to Fun Foam using the Celebrate Word die was finished with a layer of Nuvo Crystal Drops to add color and shine to each sentiment.
