Creating with Textures

Hello Everyone, I’m so glad you have stopped by today! I am honored to be guesting over at my good friend Virginia’s challenge blog today for her Virginia’s View Challenge #20 “All About Textures”, and I hope you’ll be joining in on this fun, month-long challenge!

 

V. V. Challenge #20

 

For my first card that I am sharing today, I have used some brand new stamps from both Mama Elephant and Simon Says Stamp to create a shaker card. The stamps I’ve used for this are the Jingle Greetings set from Mama Elephant, and the For to Us set from Simon Says Stamp.

 

Virginia's View Challenge #20 Texture_3

 

Shaker cards are extremely popular and fun cards to make because they are interactive! Sequins are a great and inexpensive product to use to create texture on your cards. Other ideas that you can pull from my card for creating texture include:

  • Glossy Accents
  • Distress Stickles
  • glitter paper or cardstock
  • embossing powders
  • ink-splattered backgrounds using distress ink

I’ve got a video for you showing how I created this shaker card, which you can watch below, or over on my YouTube channel.

 

 

For my second card, I have chosen to work with the Foxy Holiday stamp set from Memory Box; this set is a pretty new set to the market, and Memory Box -always known for their high quality dies-  has come out with quite a few other adorable stamps!

 

Virginia's View Challenge #20 Texture_1

 

If you know me, you know how much I enjoy making scene cards, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make a scene from this set. I stamped all my images onto white cardstock and colored them in with my Copic markers. Everything was cut out using fine tip scissors, but you can purchase coordinating dies as well using this link: Foxy Holiday die set.

To add texture to this card, I used a variety of fun mediums which include:

  • distress inks creating an ink-smooshed background
  • embossing/texture paste applied over a stencil
  • layering die cuts together to create snow banks
  • Glossy Accents
  • embossing powder
  • stars die cut from glitter cardstock

 

Virginia's View Challenge #20 Texture_2

 

There are so many fun ways to incorporate texture into your cards; the possibilities are nearly limitless! Other ideas for adding texture include: fabric, acrylic paints, burlap, canvas, buttons, hemp, foiling, spray inks, sponges and so much more.

I encourage you to explore the possibilities of adding fun textures to your cards and I also hope you will be linking up to the Virginia’s View “All About Texture” challenge… I cannot wait to see what you come up with!  Happy Creating!
