Anthony's Paper Craft February 2019 New Release Blog Hop

Today I have something special! Not only do you get to see the card I made using a brand new stamp set from Anthony's Paper Crafts (APC), but you also get to see what some of the other designers have made as this is a blog hop!

APC is releasing 12 new stamp sets in February so we have a sneak peak at some of the stamps. Make sure you keep an eye out for my release video over on my YouTube channel scheduled for February 2nd where I will showcase each stamp set and the samples made by all the designers. (Link below).

So this is the card I made and I really love how it turned out!

I started with this beautiful tile stamp and colored it in using my alcohol markers, Touch Five.

I then used Versamark ink and some clear embossing powder to give this a really shiny look. I used the ink pad directly to the panel, poured on the powder and heat set it. 

I decided to make this into a shaker card so die cut a frame and my sentiments. As you can see the frame was originally going to be black but I decided after applying it, I wanted it in the purple color I ultimately ended with. 

I used several foam squares and trimmed them narrowly and made a well for my shaker elements.

I then applied my clear acetate window and the frame I made using the purple cardstock and a banner die. The last thing was to adhere my sentiments and this card is complete!

Thank you for visiting today! Please make sure you take a moment to leave me some comments below, I really appreciate it!

Don't forget to visit the other designers as they have some amazing cards to share!
