How to Create Some Fresh and Funky Cards for Valentine’s Day

By Jowilna Nolte 

Hi everyone, on today’s blog, I am sharing some fun cards I created using StazOn Studio Glaze.
I love this stuff for the fun effects you can achieve as well as the vibrant and amazing colors in the range.

Skill Level: Beginner

Time: 20 minutes

Directions:

Step 1
Squeeze some glaze onto your squeegee and swipe your first color over a sheet of smooth white cardstock.
You can leave this to dry for a few minutes.

 

Step 2
Apply a second color to your squeegee and swipe it over the first color. I use the rubber side on my squeegee but also sometimes use one of the other edges.
Both edges work perfectly, and you can always create some effects using the textured sides.

 

Step 3

I also used a second color combination and created another sheet for a fresh spring look.

 

Step 4

Once your background is dry, use a heart or flower die-cut and die-cut some shapes using your die-cutting machine.

 

Step 5

Use your VersaFine Clair ink and color some chipboard words by directly inking the words.
Once dry, you can adhere them to your card.

 

Step 6

Assemble your card by adhering the hearts to your background using foam tape.
Adhere the “love” word using On Point Glue and finish off your card with an enamel dot.

 

And in a few easy steps, you have a gorgeous set of cards using some fun backgrounds and hearts.

For me the shine, texture, and patterns achieved are what makes these cards so special, and I just love using these glazes.

Until next time – keep on creating!
