I am quickly popping in tonight to show you my second card for the Coffee Loving Card Makers Blog Hop. I am still using the Cup of Cocoa stamp and die set from Newton’s Nook Designs. The sketch of the card was inspired by the wonderful Francine Vuilleme (this card).
After stamping and colouring the images with Copic markers, I die cut them with the coordinating dies. I die cut a square from pretty Lawn Fawn paper with on rounded corner (MFT Blueprints) and one from white cardstock to hold the sentiment. On this piece I stamped the “Sending” (Simon Says Stamp set) in red hot ink and under it with black a sentient from the above mentioned NND set. I cut the panel at an angle right under the sentiment.
I die cut a dark red stitched scalloped border and adhered under the sentiment piece before gluing it to the patterned paper background. I used an aqua stitched snowflake with a gem in the middle in the right upper corner.
The mugs were adhered to the card using 3D foam tape.
I also added some Spectrum Noir clear shimmer, black glaze pen and glossy accents to some of the details. This all fit on a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch white notecard.
I will link this project up on the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
I hope you like it and will pop in tomorrow for another holiday card.
One of my favourite blog hops is the one organised by Amy Tsuruta for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers. I am a coffee and craft addict, so I always feel the need to make new coffee/cacao cards – this time in winter theme.
My first card uses the brand new Cup of Cocoa stamp and die set from Newton’s Nook Designs. I fell in love with this set at first sight and it was pure pleasure to colour the mugs.
I chose aqua-pink combo, used Copic markers, some clear shimmer, a white gel pen and glossy accents to adorn them.
The background patterned paper is from Doodlebug, the sentiment is from an older Amy Tangerine stamp set – slightly modified from “hugs” to “mugs” with a black pen.
I cut a peek-a-boo window (Simon Says Stamp die) from kraft cardstock ad layered 2 stitched scalloped white borders on the bottom and the top of it. I used 3D foam tape to adhere it and the mugs too.
I will submit this to the Winter Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog hop.
I hope you liked my card and will return soon for more fun projects.
A new Inky Paws Challenge is starting today, IPC #61 is a great sketch:
Here is my take on it:
I wanted something colourful and non-traditional this time. I found a pretty striped patterned paper I my stash which I really wanted to use. I stamped and coloured the cute houses from the Snow Globe scenes stamp set using Copics in coordinating colours. I die cut the image with the coordinating die. I cut a small stitched rectangle from textured light blue cardstock, and a tiny bit bigger on from white cardstock. I also die cut a banner from metallic green cardstock.
I stamped the Santa with the reindeers and the sentiment on the blue piece using black ink and my MISTI. It was essential this time due to the textured cardstock, I had to stamp 3 times to get a good black impression.
After assembling the card I embellished it with a die cut white snowflake and a red button. Before gluing the button in place, I led a red-white twine through its holes and tied a bow. I secured it with Ranger Multi Matte Medium to make sure it will not come undone.
I could not call it “my card” without a bit of Spectrum Noir shimmer (on the windows and doors) and glossy accents (on the roofs and doors).
I hope you like it and got inspired to participate. You have 2 weeks to link up your project to the Inky Paws Challenges website and you might be the lucky winner of a 20 USD gift certificate to the NND online store.
I will also link this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
See you soon and have a great week,
Today is the birthday of my little boy, we had a lovely (and hectic) family gathering in the morning finished with a delicious lunch at a nearby restaurant. My little one turned 4, I cannot believe it! It seems like it was yesterday that I held him in my arms for the first time!
As he is fond of helicopters and planes, I made an interactive card for him using Winston Takes Flight from Newton’s Nook Designs. I stamped and coloured the image with Copics together with an extra propeller. I used the coordinating die to cut it out and I fussy cut the extra piece with scissors. To make it sturdier, I cut an extra layer from simple white cardstock for both and layered them under the coloured ones. I attached the extra propeller with a brad to allow a little movement.
I used the MFT Cloud stencil and Distress ink to make the sky background. I die cut a stitched frame rectangle, a stitched cloud border and the Happy birthday sentiment (all from Lawn Fawn) and adhered them to the scene.
I stamped an extra sentiment on the top of the sky with black ink (from the same NND set). I added the airplane with an action wobble. A bit of sparkle and glossy accent finished this cute card.
And I have to share also with you the card my daughter made for her brother: stencilled, stamped and coloured with love and care.
I will upload these to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
Hope you like it and will return soon for more fun.
