Sorry for the silence on the blog, it is due to some health issues, both my kids and me are sick still, and I have to serve first as mommy. I am just popping in today with a quick card I made for a sweet relative of ours who was visiting from Canada. It totally fits the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Autumn.
First I die cut a double stitched rectangle from Bristol Smooth Cardstock and using my MISTI I stamped one of the leaves from the MFT Geometric greenery set 3 times with Versamark and heat embossed it with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder. I used ZIG Clean Color Real Brush markers to colour them. The sentiment is a Paper smooches die, cut 2 times and layered on top of each other tiny offset. The metallic top piece matches the embossing powder perfectly, I was so happy with the result.
I matted my focal panel with dark brown cardstock and using a piece of fun foam I layered it on top of a brown plaid paper from Lawn Fawn. Then this went on a simple white card base. A little sparkle from the Spectrum Noir Shimmer pen on the leaves made the card super special.
I hope you like it and will return soon.
I wanted to show you that with a nice flower die and an embossing folder plus a sentiment die you can make quick yet stunning cards for any occasion. Here is my pink example:
I die cut a stitched rectangle panel of white cardstock and embossed it with the WRMK Next level embossing folder. Then I die cut the intricate flower die from Concord and 9th from pink vellum and a light pink velvety cardstock and layered them on top of each other. I glued them on the embossed panel and added some pink crystals to the middle of each.
I also die cut a SSS sentiment from Black metallic cardstock and placed it in between the flowers. And my card is all done.
I will play along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Think Pink with this card.
I hope you got inspired and will return soon.
I saw a new challenge on the YNS website and the sketch #50 talked to me. I wanted to use my newest set from YNS on my card, but it is meant for planners not for cards.
The sketch below allowed me to use four little images on one card design. Here is what I came up with as a get well card:
First I die cut the tiny squares from white cardstock using the YNS Peek-a-boo small trio die, then stamped the little images on them with black ink and coloured with Shinhan alcohol markers. I gave them a 1 inch red mat and a bit bigger stitched square (SSS) cut from bronze metallic cardstock. I adhered all these to a light beige striped stitched rectangle (Lawn Fawn paper).
The sentiment is from MFT, gold heat embossed on a stitched flag banner and popped up with foam tape. I added a few golden sparkle enamel dots as extra embellishment.
I hope you like it and will return soon. I made another card with the same sketch, hope to upload soon before the challenge deadline closes.
I have to admit I am a bit sick, caught a flu and maybe that is why I came up with the following card idea for the MFT Sketch Challenge 303.
First of all I knew I wanted subtle colours and sg plaid, so I choose 2 lovely patterned paper from Law Fawn. I also wanted to make the same card in 2 languages, one in Hungarian and one in English. So I die cut 2 pieces of white cardstock with the largest double stitched rectangle die from MFT and using my MISTI I stamped the mug 3 times next to each other from the All hearts stamp set. I coloured them with Shinhan alcohol markers and added a bit of shimmer on the hearts with my Spectrum Noir clear shimmer pen. Then I added glossy accents to the hearts, I just couldn’t help myself 😀
While the glue was drying I die cut the smallest stitched banner from dark grey and from glitter blue cardstocks, I stamped my sentiments in Versamark and heat embossed in white. The Hungarian sentiment is made with Lawn Fawn’s Jessie’s ABC, the English on is from the MFT set called Essential sentiments.
To get more dimension I popped up my white panels with fun foam under.
That is it for today, I wish you enjoyed my clean and simple cards.
See you soon,
Happy Sunday to all,
Today I brought an easy and simple card which I made for a relative of mine living abroad. I wanted sg clean and simple, which is not over embellished (like I do usually). And of course it had to fit this weeks MFT Sketch Challenge #303 too – I just flipped the sketch over.
For my card I cut a lovely patterned paper from Doodlebug and cut it A2 size. I took 2 strips of white cardstock and cut the Absolutely edge die and layered them on top of each other for more dimension. I also die cut the word fabulous from gorgeous glitter paper from MFT (it was in my last order, I just love the colour and how easy it is to work with it).
I glued everything on a white card base and added some Doodlebug matte sprinkles in matching colours.
Easy-peasy, yet looking so nice in real. Sometimes all we need is a quick but stunning card. I love the way it turned out. I hope you like it too.
Have a lovely day,
I always wanted to make a card for Lawnscaping Challenges as Lawn Fawn is my first love and the reason why I started to be obsessed with card making. I love their stamps and dies, super high quality and fun to craft with. The latest challenge #140 is to use black, purple and another colour, I chose white.
Here is my non-traditional Christmas card for dog lovers:
I stamped, coloured and die cut my images first then started to create my little scene. I used only Lawn Fawn dies this time, I die cut the stitched journaling card once from patterned paper (Doodlebug) and once from white cardstock. Using the stitched hillside border dies I cut two slopes from the white piece and glued them on the patterned one. On the lowest snowbank I stamped my sentiment in purple ink (Altenew) and added the paw print at the end in black. I attached my doggies, embellished them with Spectrum Noir clear shimmer pen and glossy accent.
I die cut a snowflake from a special craft foam which I had in my stash, it has the texture like a towel and looks so pretty in real. I added a heart in the middle cut from purple metallic cardstock, and added glossy accent on top.
For the background I used an MFT paw print background stamp on half of a white piece of cardstock with Lawn Fawn black licorice ink. I die cut the panel with the largest stitched rectangle die. As the middle did not look seamless I added a piece of purple strip to cover the problematic edge 😀 It adds to the design I think. I glued my scene in the middle and the card is ready.
I hope you like it and will pop in again soon.
Have a relaxing weekend,
Ok I promise that this is my last post for today 🙂 I made a celebration card which can be used for any occasion. I needed a jolly joker in my stash. I wanted to play along with the Paper Smooches Fall color story challenge which determined the colour choices.
Here is my card:
I started with stamping the flower image from Best Buds and coloured with Shinhan markers. I fussy cut it out and glued it on the inside of the PS Frame 2 die which I cut from white cardstock. I cut another frame from olive textured cardstock and I glued it on top of the white frame.
I also die cut the celebrate word die from purple cardstock and glued it at an angle on the vase. I added a bit of shimmer to the petals of the flowers with a Spectrum Noir shimmer pen and glued mini gemstones in the middle of them.
I still had a piece of the dotted patterned paper from my previous card and it matched the colour challenge perfectly. So I added a strip of bronze cardstock to the left edge of my patterned panel, and I glued it on a white card base which I covered with a piece of dark chocolate cardstock. The frame was glued in the middle of the patterned piece.
I hope you like my card and will pop in soon again,
