Here I am with the second card I made as a memory for our mini holiday.
I used again the Newtons Nook Designs Newton’s Summer Vacation stamp set for the image, coloured with alcohol markers and fussy cut. For the background I die cut a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock with the Mama Elephant La Fayette die and sponged distress inks on both pieces. I spritzed them with water to make the splattered look. When it was dry I stamped the sentiment from the Aloha Newton set with clear embossing ink and white heat embossed it.
When I assembling the card, I used another layer cut from white cardstock of the outer frame to make it more dimensional. I also used the Spectrum Noir shimmer pen on the umbrella and added glossy accent to it and also to the sunglasses.
A few clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh finished off my card.
I will submit this to the following challenges: Inky Paws #47 colour challenge, Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (Furry friends), Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Little Critters).
I hope you like my card and will return soon for more inspiration.
Have a nice evening!
I am back after a long silence, I am busy with other parts of life and a big crafty project which kept me away from blogging. I am sorry if you missed my posts, I will try to be back to normal.
We just came back from a 3 days-mini-holiday yesterday and before we travelled I made this card for my kids:
The background is made with distress inks, after drying I used the Mama Elephant La Fayette die to cut the frame. I popped it up with foam tape for more dimension, and stamped the sentiment in black on the middle panel.
I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the kitties from Newton’s Summer Vacation stamp set (Newton’s Nook Designs). I used alcohol markers, some clear shimmer (Spectrum Noir Shimmer pen) and glossy accents of course.
I will link this project up to the Inky Paws #47 Colour Challenge, to Simon Says Stamp Wendesday Challenge Furry friends and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Little critters
I hope you like my card and will return soon,
I was so busy recently that I hardly find time to make cards and it doesn’t make me happy at all. Today I just felt I had to squeeze one in my busy agenda. This is what I came up with (I always need birthday cards), I used the current Inky Paws Sketch Challenge as a starting point.
I cut an A2 sized kraft cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot machine with a stitched swirl background die from SSS. I cut a strip of blue gingham patterned paper and wrapped it around it before I adhered it to a white card base. I cut also a red rectangle and a white one with Hero Arts Infinity dies and several little flag banners using an MFT Blueprint die.
On the white panel I made a sky background with a handmade stencil (I used a cloud border die to make it), and sponged some Tumbled glass distress ink. I stamped the sentiment (from NND Newton Loves cake) in Versafine Onyx Black ink on the bottom and added some Lawn Fawn twine.
The balloon with the kitty is from an older NND stamp set, which is my all time favourite, Birthday Bash. I stamped and coloured with Shinhan markers and cut it with the coordinating die. I used 3D foam tape to adhere it to the sky background. Of course I had to add glossy accent also to the ballon plus a few clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
I will submit this card to the Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #46, and to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge It’s a frame up.
I hope you like it and will return soon.
I cannot believe how time flies, it has been so long since my last post. I have been busy with some friend requests and Mother’s Day projects and couldn’t fine the time to blog. I really need to craft a bit every day but life got so busy that I also had to skip a few days, which is always painful 🙂
So, here is a graduation card which was inspired by the current Lawnfawnatics Challenge Black&white and bright.
I started with cutting a strip of black&white polka dotted Lawn Fawn paper and adhered it to an A2 sized white stitched rectangle and then to a top folding white card base. I cut a stitched strip from gold foil cardstock too using the Picket Fence die (my most used die I guess) and glued it on the top of the polka dot piece.
Then I cut the Lawn Fawn tag die from black&white diagonal striped paper and from vellum. On the vellum layer I embossed the congrats sentiment in gold. I die cut the hole reinforce from the polka dot paper too. I layered them together in a way that it is slightly offset. I added some colourful twine and popped it up on the card base with 3D foam tape.
Then I stamped and coloured and die cut the cute fox from the Into the woods stamp set (my all time favourite) and the graduation cap from Hats off to you. I used a bit of gold gel pen on the tassel and glossy accent to make it shiny. I used 3D foam squares to pop it up on the tag.
I wish you enjoyed my card and got inspired. Please return soon for more fun cards.
