Wednesday Projects from Nikki!

Nikki here, and today is my day to share my Scrapdoodles creations!
All three of my cards have small details to add dimension to an otherwise flat card.

My first card features a cling stamp from Stampendous called "Party Balloons".  I added a sentiment to the image by taking another stamp by Imaginisce, called "Take the Cake", cutting off the sentiment and clipping it in half.  I was then able to stack it on top of each other as you will see below.  To add dimension, I used "Glossy Accents" by Ink Essentials, and covered the balloons with it after I colored them with Copics and a gel pen.  Then I experimented by heating it with a heating tool, which kind-of sort-of worked, but not as well as leaving it for a couple of hours to dry completely.  The decorative paper is by Reminisce and is double sided (both shown).
 In this picture, you can see the glossy raised dimension that the glossy accents adds.
My second card features another cling stamp by Stampendous, called "Full Fluffles".  I colored him with Copics, and added accents with a white gel pen.  I added dimension to the cake icing by using Stickles.  The decorative paper is double sided and is made by Imaginisce.

My last card features an adorable Imaginisce Stamp from the Animal Crackers collection, called "Monkey".  The sentiment is one of the banners from the "Tres Elegant" mini stamp set from We Are Memory Makers.  I used two different double sided papers from Imaginisce.  One is from the Animal Crackers collection and the other is from the Princess collection.  To add dimension to this one I stamped the monkey image twice and colored one with Copics.  Next, I trimmed the colored image and stacked it on to the uncolored one using Quick Stick adhesive to attach it.  If you have never used a Quick Stick, you'd love it!  It is glue but with the consistency of gel ink and a ball point dispenser!  It is perfect for tiny details!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
