I am happy to be joining you on ThinkCrafts blog. I would like to share these cards I made while exploring different ways to use 12×12 white cardstock. I hope this card shows you some different ways to use white card stock.
Today, I will be using a few sheets of Bazzilll white cardstock to emboss a background and to color using Copic Markers. Let’s get started.
- Bazzilll Canvas 12 x 12 in. Cardstock – White
- Paper Accents Pearlized Rose Gold Cardstock
- Bazzilll Canvas 12 x 12 in. Cardstock – Artic
- Hero Arts Kit-Tea Stamp and Cut Set
- Scrapbook Adhesives Thin Foam Squares
- Scrapbook Adhesives EZDots Tape Runner
- Nuvo Deluxe Glue
- Hero Arts Fancy Reef Border Frame Die Set (Oval only)
- Tim Holtz Tonic Studios Maxi Trimmer
- VersaMarker Watermark Pen
- VersaMark Watermark Ink Pad
- Gemini Jr. Die Cutting Machine
I like using 12×12 sheets because I can get so many panels out of them to try different things. The 12×12 sheet was cut into 6 panels at 4” wide by 5.25” tall. I then ran all these panels through my Gemini Jr die cutting machine using various background embossing folders. I only used two of the embossed panels today and will save the rest for future projects.
I then cut a second 12×12 white cardstock sheet into 3 4”wide strips and stamped the main image from Hero Arts Kit-Tea stamp set. I used Copic markers to color in the image. The paper stood up well to all the blending I did with the markers. To color this cat I used: RV91, V93, W5, C7, E51, W1. The tea cup and flower: BG000, G000, Y28, E84, RV11, BV17, Y19, RV21
To assemble, I used a sheet of Bazzill Arctic cardstock to make 2 top folding A2 sized cards. I attached the embossed panels using Scrapbook Adhesives dot tape runner. To one card, I added an oval I die cut out of the Bazzill Arctic cardstock using the oval frame from the Hero Arts Fancy Reef frame die set. Rose gold embossing powder was added to give the edge of the oval some glam as well as die cut a sentiment from the set. To get the embossing powder to stick, I traced the edge of the oval with a VersaMarker pen and then added the embossing powder. On the other card, I cut a strip of pearlized rose gold cardstock and adhered a strip of Bazzill Arctic cardstock which had a sentiment heat embossed with the same rose gold powder. To both cards I adhered the colored image using Scrapbook adhesives thin foam tape and some gems to complete the look. I hope you enjoyed these cards today and take a look at how to use your white cardstock in different ways.
