Pacific Point with New and Continuing Products
I started playing with Pacific Point between Christmas and New Year, starting with some water-colouring and then some blending. As life was quiet, I ended up creating 3 different cards for this blog hop.
I started by creating the background on Shimmery White card-stock using Pacific Point & Polished Pink Classic Stampin' inks with the wide-brushed Water painter. I only wanted a light background so it didn't compete with the focal images. Once the background had dried it was splattered with both a Pacific Point Stampin' Write Marker and White Craft ink with the fine tipped Water Painter.
The die cut card front (Shimmery White card-stock) was cut using the large Aspen ... die. I so love this die. As you can see it cuts out tree trunks in an oval shape hole. The tree trunks were very lightly water-coloured with Crumb Cake ink. When dry, the panel was embossed using the Woodgrain 3D Embossing Folder and splattered with both Pacific Point and Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Markers.
The smaller leaf die from the Aspen Tree ... dies cut a number of leaves from Shimmery White card-stock. They were water-coloured with Polished Pink ink. The bird and branch from the Perched in a Tree stamp set were stamped in Crumb Cake ink, then Versamark ink and clear heat embossed using Clear Emboss Powder and a Heat Tool. My Stamperatus ensured the clear embossing was directly over the Crumb Cake ink. The bird and branch were water-coloured using Crumb Cake ink and touches of White Craft ink and the bird was also coloured with Pacific Point and Night of Navy inks. To add extra depth of colour I used Pacific Point, Early Expresso and Back Black Watercolor Pencils.
A couple of sentiments from the Something Fancy stamp set were stamped either in Crumb Cake or Pacific Point inks. Both sentiments were fussy cut and I combined part of a word from one sentiment into another sentiment. Don't forget that you can chop up sentiments and only use part of them or mix and match to get a sentiment that is perfect for the recipient. All the pieces were layered together onto a Pacific Point card-stock base and a few Iridescent Pearls add the finishing touch.
Adding colour directly to coloured card-stock changes the colour as you can see with this card. Pacific Point was blended directly onto Smoky Slate card-stock using one of Stampin' Up!s gorgeous Blending Brushes. A piece of Stampin' Up!s Masking Paper was die cut with a Stitched Rectangle from the ... set of dies. If you look closely you with see the stitched outline around the coloured rectangle. It is an extra touch of gorgeousness that happens with no extra effort. It's wonderful. A touch of White Craft ink and Night of Navy Classic ink was also added to give extra monochromatic range.
This card started out with the idea of a sympathy card but the addition of a white panel behind the front panel lightened up the feel and I thought I would use it as a New Year's card.
I created 2 water-coloured panels when I first stared playing with Pacific Point. I had a number of ideas of how I would use the panel on this card, but in the end decided to use it behind the ... large floral die cut from the new ... Isn't it beautiful. It was cut from a piece of basic White card-stock and adhered directly onto the water-coloured
