3 Ways with Tie Dye Motifs Stamp!

by May Sukyong Park

Hi, friends!

Today I share 3 mixed media projects and fun ways to create with the new Tie Dye Motifs Stamp Set!

I got my hands on the Translucent Pearl Crisp Embossing Powder and fell in love! I ended up using it on two of my projects. It has very subtle shimmer and is actually a fine grained embossing powder. This means that it is perfect for adding a glaze-like effect to your projects with a bonus sparkle!

Grungy Mixed Media Art Card – Hello

For this art card, use a thinner piece of cardstock so that you get lots of wrinkles! Stamp two of the circular motifs from the stamp set with Embossing Ink and heat set with Translucent Pearl Crisp Embossing Powder. Start by misting the cardstock with water and drop Ultramarine Liquid Watercolor into the centers of the design and let the color spread. Add more water with mist bottle if needed. You can lift the excess ink by pressing another piece of cardstock on top. This will also give you two backgrounds in one go!

Before the cardstock dries completely, scrunch the paper to add wrinkles and lightly dab Starlight Crisp Dye Ink across the tips of the wrinkles and the edges of the card panel. Add more water to help blend the colors in. Dry thoroughly and add to A2 blank card with foam tape. To finish, add Waterbrush Hello Die in coordinating cardstock.

Stamp and layer the large and medium motifs using Turquoise and Pinkalicious Crisp Dye Inks. Add sentiment from the set with Obsidian Pigment Ink and make sure to dry completely. Use a Small Ink Blending Tool to softly apply Jet Black Mixed Media Ink through the Broken Chevrons Stencil. Mixed Media Inks are pigment based, and they dry slowly and can be used with embossing powders!

Before the ink dries completely, sprinkle with Translucent Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set. As the layer of ink is fine, the embossing powder will not be smooth which gives beautiful texture once heat set.

Patterned Lines Card – Every Smile!

This card is simple to put together and easy to stamp if you have a MISTI tool, and even if the image doesn't line up, it still gives a beautiful fabric-like effect. To create the card you will need two of the line pattern stamps from the set, Deep Iris and Tide Blue Crisp Dye Inks to create your pattern.
