Ep. 968 – Spellbinders Celebra’tions Collection

Scrap Time - Ep. 968 - Spellbinders Celebr'ations Collection

Today I am showing you a variety of products from the new Spellbinders Celebra’tions Collection! This is the first time that Spellbinders has come out with patterned papers, cardstock and ink that all co-ordinate! As well, there are stamps, embossing folders and dies! In the video I show you how I make the card above. I started with a piece of cardstock that I cut to make a 4 1/4″x5 1/2″ card. I stamped the large Doily Fun Stamp using the ink in the same colour as the paper. This gives you a great tone on tone background. I then cut the Tag using the Build-A-Tag Two set. It comes with 2 tag dies and 2 texture plates! You can see both above. I used the same colour ink pad to run over the embossed areas to highlight them. I cut a small and large Rosette from the Celebra’tions patterned paper and folded them to give them dimension. I layered the circle dies together, so I have a cut circle with the pierced holes around it, and stamped a greeting from the Many Words stamp set. I then layered it all together and added a few embellishments!

I did the exact same thing here, this time using Greens and Blues. I added some splatters of the new Silk Lustre Ink as well!

EP. 967 – Crystal Katana by the Crystal Ninja

Scrap Time - Ep. 967 - Crystal Kanata by the Crystal Ninja

Today I am featuring the Crystal Katana by the Crystal Ninja. This is a tool designed to pick up various sizes of rhinestones to add to your projects. I have had this tool since January, but didn’t really need to use it. Then the other day I was working with sequins, and having difficulty picking them up, and it occurred to me – I have the perfect tool! The Crystal Katana!! It has a wax tip on one end, that easily picks up all of those tiny sequins. I place a bit of glue where I want my sequin, pick it up with the Crystal Katana, then with the other end I press the sequin into the glue! So easy!! If you use a lot of sequins (or rhinestones) you definitely need the Crystal Katana by the Crystal Ninja!

Ep. 966 – Lumi Inkodye with Scan n Cut Stencils

Scrap Time - Ep. 966 - Lumi Inkodye with Stencils

On the last episode I featured the Lumi Inkodye with the Hazel and Ruby Masks. But we wanted to try it with stencils. So we cut our own stencils using the Scan n Cut and cardstock. This allows you to make any phrase you want. We wanted to make Mark a t-shirt and choose a quote from Indiana Jones. We then lined it up using the Scan n Cut and cut it out of cardstock. We put the t-shirt over a piece of foam core. We lined up the quote on the shirt so we knew where to apply the ink. We rolled out the black ink and then pinned the paper onto the shirt, into the foam core. We had to use lots of pins, since once the paper touched the ink it started to curl, to hold down all of the little pieces of paper. We placed it out into the sun for 10 minutes while the ink developed. Once the ink developed we washed it with the Inkowash and dried it. The picture above is what the shirt looked like when we took it out of the dryer. However, in the video you can see how the ink developed further once Mark was wearing it outside.

Now Gemma wanted to make another shirt for herself. We made the stencil the same way. However, this time we pinned the stencil onto the shirt and painted the Inkodye through the stencil. So, on Gemma’s shirt she only has the letters and not a background, like on Mark’s shirt.

There are so many ways you can use the Lumi Inkodye! Gemma keeps wanting to make more and more t-shirts!

You can buy Lumi products at Curry’s in Canada and Dick Blick in the States.

On the next episode I am featuring the Crystal Kanata by the Crystal Ninja!

Ep. 965 – Lumi Inkodye

Ep. 965 - Lumi Inkodye

Today Gemma and I are making t-shirts using the Lumi Inkodye. Inkodye is ink that is activated by the sun. We used the Hazel and Ruby Letter Masks with the Inkodye. We started by laying down our letters to see where we would need to place the ink. We then rolled the ink within that zone. Once the ink was on, we placed the masks in place and then took the shirt outside to activate the ink. We left it out for 10 minutes and you can see the ink change colour.

On my shirt, I masked off the area where I wanted the ink. I then added one of my flowers cut from paper from the Scan n Cut. I cut out a stem and a leaf by hand. I added my letters and then took my shirt outside!

Here are our completed shirts! Once we brought them in, we washed them with the Inkowash to get rid of the excess ink.

You can also use the Lumi Negative Films to print negatives of your photos. You can process your photos through the Lumi app to turn them into negatives, and then print them with your ink jet printer. Or, Lumi can make a negative for you and send it to your home. I tried this with a few photos and I found that you need a photo with a high contrast. The photo above worked here, but when I did it on a t-shirt it was really faint. I personally found this method more difficult. You can double the negative to make the image crisper.

In the video we show you how Gemma and I made the shirts, step by step!

You can buy Lumi products at Curry’s in Canada and Dick Blick in the States.

On the next episode we are still playing with Lumi Inkodye, but this time with Scan n Cut stencils!
