Radiant Neon Blog Hop





Hi everyone and happy Friday :)

Welcome to the CardMaker / IMAGINECrafts Radiant Neon Blog Hop!

I am so excited to be part of this hop and thrilled that you stopped by to hop along with us!

And I am sure you will not be disappointed, because there are a lot of gorgeous inspirational projects awaiting you along the hop! :)

In case you didn't come here during the hop, you can jump over and start at the CardMaker Blog


Of course there is also a super prize to win along the hop! :) You can read all about the details and rules over at the IMAGINECrafts Blog.
(date expired + prize drawn, but of course you still can hop along and get inspired by the beautiful creations from the super talented hop participiants :) )


The card I am sharing with you is simple, yet stunning because of the gorgeous Neon inks and the contrast of the glowing colors against the white!




And here are the how-to's


Step 1:
Use a sponge dauber, pick up some Radiant Neon Electric Yellow ink and dab it onto the center of your flower stamp (from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Mums the Word" stamp set)



Step 2:
Use another sponge dauber to pick up some Radiant Neon Electric Coral ink and dab it onto the stamp, carefully blending into the yellow as you apply the ink



Step 3:
Again, use a sponge dauber and load it with Radiant Neon Electric Pink ink. Apply the pink ink to the outer areas of the stamp, blending the ink into the Coral as you dab it on.


Step 4:
Stamp the flower (from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Mums the Word" stamp set) onto a 3" x 4 1/4" panel of white cardstock. Repeat until you have stamped three flowers.



Step 5:
Stamp sentiment (from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Mums the Word" stamp set) with Memento Tuxedo Black onto the lower third of the panel


Step 6:
Mount focal panel onto white top folded card base (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") with dimensional foam tape + embellish with blue enamel dots


I hope you enjoyed this mini tutorial on how to ink your stamps with more than one of the gorgeous Radiant Neon colors :)



And here are my words for you:
THANK YOU
