MIX65 Back to Kindergarten- Having Fun with Crayons!!

Hi Again Stampers! 

I had so much fun with SplitcoaststampersMIX65 Challenge- Back to Kindergarten (using crayons) and I chose the crayon rubbed embossing technique that I created five cards with this technique this weekend :-)

I shared one of the cards in my previous post and the following are the first two cards that I created with this technique...one allows the embossing folder as the main focal image and the other stamped elements :-)

 I hope you will have the time to check out the gallery and possibly create a few of your own creations using crayons- it really is a lot of fun being in Kindergarten again!!

To create the first card:

Using the crayon rubbed embossing technique (here is the link to the forum and the technique videos), open the Textured Impressions™  Embossing Folder and place a piece of Whisper White cardstock on top of the raised portion of the folder.   Rub the White Crayon over the cardstock (press firmly) and use a brayer to apply Coastal Cabana Classic Ink. 

Use a paper towel to rub the ink off the crayon areas, use a Sponge Dauber first with Pacific Point Classic Ink to sponge over the crayon areas and second with Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink.  Rub off the excess ink with a dry paper towel. 

Ink the Notable Notions script stamp using Pacific Point Classic Ink and stamp over the entire background (lightly rub off the ink from the crayon portion again using a dry paper towel).  

Re-insert the panel into the Textured Impressions™ Folder and emboss with the Big Shot™.  

Trim the panel, mount onto Elegant Eggplant cardstock, trim and mount onto Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto Pacific Point cardstock and finally onto the Elegant Eggplant card base.

Add the crochet lace trim along with the 5/8” Double Satin Ribbon Bow and Heart “Love” Trinket to finish off the card. 

Stamp Sets: Notable Notions

Ink: Coastal Cabana, Pacific Point, Elegant Eggplant

Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant, Pacific Point

Accessories: Big Shot™, Sizzix Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, White Crayon, Sponge Daubers,  retired Heart Trinkets, 5/8” Satin Ribbon (from my stash), Crochet Ribbon Trim (from my stash)

To create the second card:

Using the crayon rubbed embossing technique (here is the link to the forum and the technique videos), open the Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and place a piece of Whisper White cardstock on top of the raised portion of the folder.   Rub the White Crayon over the cardstock (press firmly) and use a brayer to apply Coastal Cabana Classic Ink. 
 
Use a paper towel to rub the ink off the crayon areas, use a Sponge Dauber with Bermuda Bay Classic Ink to sponge over the crayon areas.  Rub off the excess ink with a dry paper towel. 

Ink the Notable Notions script stamp using Pacific Point Classic Ink and stamp over the entire background (lightly rub off the ink from the crayon portion again using a dry paper towel). 

Ink the Summer Silhouettes stamps using Basic Black Classic Ink and stamp over the background, again rubbing the excess ink off the crayon with the dry paper towel.

Trim and mount the background onto Basic Black cardstock.  Add the sentiment (the sentiment was previously printed using My Digital Studio and punched out with the 1 ¼” Circle Punch and mounted onto a Basic Black 1 ¼” punched circle.  Add the 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon bow and mount the entire panel onto Whisper White cardstock.

Add the Basic Black square panels in the upper and lower corners and mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. 

Adhere the entire panel onto the Basic Black card base to finish off the card

Stamp Sets: Summer Silhouettes, Notable Notions, Thoughts and Prayers (MDS version)

Ink: Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Pacific Point, Basic Black
Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Basic Black
Accessories: Sizzix Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, White Crayon, Sponge Daubers, 1 ¼” Circle Punch, 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon
