Now onto today's tutorial, If you are reading this post from a feedburner email you can see Heidi's Blog Video by clicking here. Today's tutorial is just 8 minutes long and it will certainly inspire you to get out your masculine stamps to design cards for all the men in your family.
For the first card I am using JustRite Papercraft CL-02168 A2 Woodgrain Upcycled Frame Background Cling Stamp and Rich Cocoa ink stamped on kraft cardstock.
I used Spectrum Noir Markers DR4 and DR6 to color on the frame. First I applied DR4 and then for the shaded areas I used DR6 and went back over with DR4 to blend the colors.
After all of the coloring was done I fussy cut the frame and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Next I stamped the airplane image from the CL-03740 Going Places Vintage Labels Cling Stamps on to white cardstock using Rich Cocoa ink. Next I used Spectrum Noir markers DR4, DR6, and EB3 to color the image. I used DR6 to do the shading on the airplane and then I blended the colors using DR4. I used EB3 to outline the image. Then I used JustRite Dies JB-03730 Vintage Labels & Banners Dies to die cut the label shape. After die cutting the label I left the paper inside the die and inked the inside edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
To assemble the card I used a brown base with a layer of red and then the stamped frame image. I added 3D Foam Squares to the label and to embellish the card I added a metal tag with some twine. Here is a close up of my card with the metal tag.

Card #2 – Good Times Good Friends
For the second card I used CR-02166 Stacking Sentiments Clear Stamps to do the chalkboard technique. I used the Spellbinders GLD-016 Baby Buntings to cut the black banner shape.
Next I stamped the first sentiment from the Stacking Sentiments Clear Stamps with white pigment ink (since pigment ink stays wet and I wanted a stronger white for this technique) I then used white embossing powder and a heat tool to heat set the embossing. Tip: before you apply hit flick your paper to get off any of the excess embossing powder. Be careful with the heat tool–they get very hot! Stamp the second stamp directly below the first one and emboss with the white embossing powder. Since the stamps are clear it is very easy to line up. Now it's time to create the chalkboard look.
I used a cotton ball and a dab it in the white pigment ink. Then gently rub some of the ink on to the black paper. To add some doodling along the edge of the die cut I used a Prismacolor Colored Pencil White.
Here is a close up of my card. To assemble the card I used a kraft base with a layer of aqua and another layer of kraft. I used Spellbinders GLD-016 Baby Buntings to create the largest die cut in Aqua. For a simple embellishment I added some twine and then placed the chalkboard banner on top.

Card #3 – Thinking of You
For the third and final card I used CL-03740 Going Places Vintage Labels Cling Stamps.
I stamped the image of the card with Rich Cocoa ink on to white paper.
I used Spectrum Noir™ Markers DG1, DG2, DG3 to color the banner area above the car. I used one of the dies from the JustRite Dies JB-03730 Vintage Labels & Banners Dies to die cut the label shape. Next ink the edges of the die cut with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
To assemble the card I had green for a base and then a layer of brown. I used Spellbinders S5-127 Labels Twenty-Eight to die cut the burlap. I added 3D Foam Squares to the back f the label and then I also added hot glue to secure the paper to the burlap.
For embellishments I added some metal gears and twine.

In the set you will find a beautiful quote from Heidi. I asked Heidi to share with you today what this quote means to her.
"Life is so fast pass these days and I think sometimes we forget to take a few quiet moments and just BE in that moment. I truly believe that angels and the spirits of those who have gone before us are all around us—watching over us, protecting us and guiding us. To me “Let your heart be still and hear the whisper of the wings”, means to give yourself permission to have those quiet moments. Maybe to reflect on things or maybe just to let your mind relax and refresh and have that moment. You never know maybe something profound will come to you, maybe an idea, or an answer to a question or maybe the quiet whisper of angels wings to calm you and let you know they are watching over you and you are loved."
Whisper of Wings Clear Stamp is a 4" x 6" Clear Stamp Set of 9 images including two beautiful feathers.
Today Heidi Blankenship is sharing two cards she designed with Whisper of Wings Clear Stamps. For her first stunning card, Heidi stamped and embossed the feathers in white and then created a wonderful watercolor background with paint spatters and sequins.
For Heidi's second beautiful card Heidi paired theWhisper of Wings Clear Stamps with our new Honeycomb Cling Background Stamp and a real feather dyed blue. I love the mixed media feel of her card. For all the details on both cards visit her blog post.

Here is a step by step tutorial too.
I used the CL-02136 Morning Glory stamp for the card. Stamp the morning glory image using Rich Cocoa ink on to white cardstock. I used the Spectrum Noir markers to start coloring the image. I started with the flowers using LV1, LV2, PL5, and the Blender.
I started with the lightest color and worked my way to the darkest. I applied the blender to the petal in the areas I want to stay the lightest and then I start to add some color. Next I added the medium purple. Then add the darkest color right around the edges. Now work back with the colors-darkest to lightest blending as you go.
I colored the leaves the same way I did for the flowers going from lightest to the darkest color and then back again and blending the colors.
This is what my project looked like before I started adding the colored pencils.
Next I was able to add more depth to my image by adding details with my Spectrum Noir Colored pencils. I add more detail and darkened and crisped up the edges of the stamped image. I used colored pencils from the Primary Pencil Set and the Essentials Pencil Set. For the flowers I used these Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils - Purples-078, 080, 082.
For the leaves I added shading with these Spectrum Noir Pencils - Greens-056, 047, 058.
To blend the colored pencils I used a container with a sponge and odorless mineral spirits and blender stumps. (Watch the video to see how I use the mineral spirits in a container with a sponge with the blender stumps).
To add more dimension to my image I also used the blender and IB1 marker to create a very light blue background around the Morning Glories.
Then I used these Spectrum Noir pencils to add some shading and blend out the blue Grays-112, 117, and Blue-065. To complete my card I used Spellbinders Paper Arts S4-462 Labels Thirty-Nine, and S4-464 Labels Thirty-Nine Decorative Elements.
Paper: White, Lavender, Purple
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Grape Jelly
Markers/Pencils: Spectrum Noir™ Markers– Primary, Essentials, LV1, LV2, PL5, DG1, DG2, DG3, BG5, BG6, IB1, GG1, Blender, Spectrum Noir™ Pencils-Purples-078, 080, 082, Blue-065, Greens-056, 047, 058, Grays-112, 117

Welcome to Day Three with Guest Designer Michelle Woerner. Special Thank You to Michelle for joining us this week as a guest designer. Remember that you can find more inspiration from Michelle or her blog Stop and Stamp the Roses. Today Michelle is sharing two fun cards.
My first card is a fun Hello card I made using the Floral Thank You stamp set and Washi Tape. Interesting cut lines are popping up all over Pinterest and I thought I’d give it a try.
1. Stamp flower image on white cardstock, using coral, green and yellow ink.
2. Cut opening along the left side of the flower, leaving an opening of ½”.
3. Adhere washi tape along left side of card base, make sure if the placement so it shows through the cut opening.
4. Adhere panel to card front using foam tape.
6. Stamp sentiment and add bow.
7. Add sequin and stickles accents to the flower center.
Here are some pictures showing how I cut the opening strip using my Perfect Layers tool, but any straight edge and craft knife will work.
My next card is a fun card using the one of the cutie owls from the Owl Be There set! These little owls are so adorable I just couldn’t resist.
- Stamp owl image on card base and color.
- Die cut circle ring from brown cardstock and adhere around owl as a frame
- Cut patterned paper into banner shapes, layer and adhere together.
- Using Circle die, cut circle opening in banner as shown. Adhere to card front using foam tape.
- Wrap baker’s twine around card front 2 times, tie into a bow.
- Stamp sentiment and die cut into conversation bubble shape, adhere using foam squares.
- Add rhinestone accents.
I want to thank Kellie for inviting me to be a part of the JustRite family this week and all of you for the lovely comments!
Welcome to Day Two with Guest Designer Michelle Woerner. Today Michelle is sharing a fun birthday card.
Every once in awhile I like to shake things up and make a kraft based card. I think stamped images, like the gorgeous flower from the Mum Cling Stamps , really pop on a kraft background!
1. Stamp flower image onto kraft cardstock, color and trim cardstock to the size of your card front, leaving a 1/8” at the top and bottom
2. Trim patterned paper strips and adhere to the top and bottom
3. Using border punch, create scalloped border from lavender cardstock, trim and adhere along the bottom
4. Cover seam with black velvet ribbon.
5. Next, trim kraft cardstock into ribbon strips, adhere a small lavender piece and some velvet ribbon making an accent piece
6. Tie silk ribbon into a double bow and tie button around center; adhere over the top of the accent piece
7. Stamp sentiment on white cardstock, die cut into circle shape, adhere and trim off right edge.
8. Adhere panel to white card base using foam squares.
9. Add rhinestone accents
I love to play around with scraps to make accent features! Here I used some cardstock scraps to make a coordinating banner at the top left corner.
Did you notice my original flower had white gel pen highlights? After finishing my card, I decided I didn’t like them, so I figured a way to cover them up.
I restamped the top of the flower, colored and fussy cut it out large enough to cover all the white accents!
A tip for making your fussy cut edges look uniform and clean is to use a marker and ink the edges. For my cut piece, I used the “middle” shade of yellow. Then adhere it over the flower using foam squares.
