Cling Film Wrap Technique for cardmaking blog hop

leaf wreath card using cling film technique to ink the leaves card making with zoe tant


Hey Crafty Friends, Welcome to this month's Totally Techniques blog hop.  Our band of international Stampin' Up! demonstrators are sharing the Cling Film Wrap technique.  It's fun and very simple and uses just ink, water spritz and cling film from your kitchen drawer.  
cling wrap technique

Start by placing a piece of cling film on your table that is bigger than your water colour card piece that you wish to ink.  Stamp your ink water based ink pads onto the cling film then spritz with water. I used a Stampin' Up! spritzer bottle with tap water in it.  It needs to have enough water spritzed on the ink to make it start to move as you can see in the picture above.  I also added some splatters of Wink of Stella to give it some sparkle. 

Place your watercolour card, I used Fluid 100 from Stampin' Up!.  onto the inky surface.  Gather the corners of the cling film and then flip the whole thing over. Just be careful to have caught up the cling edges so as not to flick ink everywhere!
You then need to 'scrunch' the cling film as shown below leaving lots of mini folds across your paper.  Fold the excess cling film over the sides and underneath.  Now the difficult part you need to let it dry completely before you do anything else.  

Once dry you can remove the cling film and decide how you will use your design piece.  You could use as a background, die cut shapes like I have using the leaf die from the Ranunculus  dies, or use strips for borders or anything else you can think of. 

Having die cut lots of leaves I used them to create a wreath on a black card matt and card base.  I added a silver heat embossed 'Sending' and simply stamped Birthday Wishes both from the Sending Smiles bundle, this bundle will soon be available from the new 2022 - 2023 Annual Stampin Up! catalogue.

Welcome to the April New at SU blog hop. We are showcasing products that will carryover from the 2021 2022 catalogue into our new annual catalogue that launches on 3 May.   I've used the Buttefly Brilliance Bundle that will no longer be a bundle in the next catalogue, but individual products of dies and stamp set so you can benefit now by saving 10% on the bundle before 2 May 2022.

I added ink to my silicon mat and then added the stamp to lift ink from it and then very carefully put the mat onto my white card stock ink side down.  This created a very subtle background of butterflies.  I used the Brilliant Wings dies from the bundle to die cut several butterflies and added subtle ink to a couple of them with a blending brush.  I've then added white and inked butterflies to my background along with my sentiment which is die cut and fussy cut from the Amazing Thanks dies.  I used letters from the word amazing and you to create the "MUM".  

I also created a frame for my background using my Stampin' trimmer and the card itself is approximately A5 in size.  A handful of rhinestones adds that bling for a special Mum and also helps to disguise the join on the letters in Mum.  

Enjoy our hop there's lots of inspiration along the them of Mums, Dads, Brides and Graduates.  

Keep safe and keep stamping
