It is Monday, the start of a new Inky Paws Challenge. Look at all these pretty colours! Aren’t they gorgeous?
I wanted to use the Beautiful Plumage stamp set for a while now and I thought the colours match perfectly the peacock image. So I coloured one of them with Copic markers (nothing fancy just basic colouring) and used the coordinating die to cut it out.
I sponged some Tumbled Glass distress ink on a top folding, A2 sized white notecard and adhered a strip of gingham patterned paper in soft pastel. Then I die cut the You (MFT die set) once from white and once from glitter cardstock, layered them together. On a thin strip of purple cardstock I white heat embossed a sentiment (Lawn Fawn).
I assembled the card, popped up the peacock with 3D foam squares and embellished it with a white gel pen, a black glaze pen and some glossy accents. I also added some subtle shimmer with a Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen. I think it could be a perfect card for Mother’s Day too.
I hope I inspired you. The Inky Paws Challenge #71 is open until 11th May, so you have 2 weeks to link up your project and be eligible to win a 20USD gift certificate to the Neston’s Nook Designs online store. I hope you join us in this pretty colour challenge.
I will link my project up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
Thank you for your visit, I hope to see you soon,
It is my second post today as I wanted to play along the MFT Sketch #381and Colour Challenge #91 this week.
I started with creating my background on Bristol Smooth paper. I sponged some pink distress inks with a light hand and then used a stencil and heavier hand to add more texture. I distressed it with water, added some pink splatters.
Then I die cut 5 times the Chain circle frame and layered them together using spray adhesive.
I stamped, die cut and coloured with Copics some flowers from the Buildable Bouquet set. I added them inside the frame using 3D foam squares. I covered the petals with a clear shimmer pen, added some glossy accent and a golden glass pearl.
The sentiment I heat embossed in white on a thin strip of black cardstock. A few mini white pearls finished it off.
I will link this project up on the MFT Colour Challenge #91, MFT Sketch Challenge #381, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Sparkle and shine and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Flower Power.
I hope you like my card and will return soon for more inspiration.
I am back with some fresh inspiration for the Inky Paws Challenge #70.
I felt the sketch was shouting for a masculine card, so I gave it a try and came up with this design.
I started with selecting patterned paper and matching cardstock. I cut a window die from the olive cardstock and backed it with a strip of vellum. Before adhering it with foam tape, I heat embossed a sentiment from the Deer friend stamp set using gold embossing powder.
I really wanted to use the Splendid stags dies to cut some gold glitter deer. But the die I liked faced right. I needed a mirror die cut, so I simply cut it from the back side of the glitter paper. Worked out great, the scratches of my well used cutting plates do not show due to the glitter.
I popped up the 2 deer partially with foam tape and my clean and simple card for him is done.
I wish you like it and got inspired to play along the sketch challenge at IPC. There is still 5 days left for you to enter the challenge and be eligible to win the 20 USD gift certificate to the Newton’s Nook online store.
I will link this project up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Sparkle and Shine.
Hope to see you soon,
I am back with another unicorn card in my series. This time I am featuring Neat and Tangled Magical Day.
I stamped, coloured and die cut the images first, added some extra shimmer with a clear shimmer pen and some glossy accents. Tiny detail with a white gel pen and a dot on the eye with a black glaze pen took this cute image to another level.
Then I ran my card base through the Big Shot with the Lil’ Inkers Designs Stitched Swirls die for a subtle background texture. I cut a piece of black and white striped patterned paper (MFT) and a thin strip of pink to go on top.
The sentiment I stamped in pink on a very thin strip of white cardstock and embellished it with some enamel dots in coordinating colours.
I will link this project up on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Add texture .
I hope you like my card and will keep checking back for more unicorns.
It is Monday and time for a fresh new challenge at the Inky Paws Challenge website. #70 is a great sketch which inspired me to make a clean and simple every day card.
I started with cutting a piece of red gingham paper and a strip of red and a strip of white cardstock. On the red one I cut 3 windows with a Simon Says Stamp Tri square die. On the white one I stamped the sentiment and the cute doughnuts from the Love bites stamp set.
I quickly coloured them with Copic markers, added some highlights with a blender pen, some clear shimmer and glossy accents. I adhered the red frame on top and tied a piece of twine around the bottom part.
I used a kraft card base and popped up the focal panel with 3D foam tape. To make sure the bow will not come undone, I used a drop of Multi Matte Medium on the knot.
I hope you like my simple card design an you got inspired to participate in the Inky Paws Challenge #70. You have 2 weeks to upload your project to be eligible to win the 20USD gift certificate to the Newton’s Nook Designs online store.
See you soon with more fun projects.
To continue the Unicorn Card Series, I made a set of 4 cards inspired by the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #26.
Here is my card set:
I wanted to repurpose some packaging material from Pretty Pink Posh, I just love the subtle polka dot cardstock they use to back their stamps and dies. So I cut 4×4 inch squares from them and mounted them on square card bases.
I also die cut several stitched star frames (3 layers for each card, reusing some packaging material again for the bottom layers) and adhered them together for a thicker frame.
The inside of the frame I ran through the big shot machine with a Snowy Backdrop die to create the night sky. I sponged Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks on them and backed the panel with silver glitter paper.
I stamped and coloured the unicorn costumed kid from the Costume Party stamp set using Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I added some Tonic Aqua Clear shimmer to the hair and horn and emphasized some details with glossy accents.
The sentiment is from the Critters Ever After stamp set, I white heat embossed it on matching coloured cardstock scraps. Then I die cut them with Sentiment Banners. When assembling the card I used 3D foam tape under the coloured image.
I will upload this project to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #26 Card sets and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Add Some Texture.
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you soon. I still have some unicorn card I have not shared yet 😉
Another card in my Unicorn Card Series, this time featuring Avery Elle.
I started with the background by stencilling the colourful clouds. I used Distress Inks and MFT Cloud stencil.
Then I stamped, coloured and die cut the images from the Avery Elle Pegasus Duo stamp set. I used Copic markers. After die cutting I added some shimmer with a Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen and some shine with glossy accents.
I heat embossed a sentiment from the set on a strip of black cardstock with white embossing powder. I mounted the elements on the background using 3D foam squares. I embellished the card with some silver glitter die cut stars.
It was the perfect card for a unicorn birthday gift pack.
I will upload this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Happy Birthday.
I hope you like my card and got inspired. Be sure to check back soon for more unicorns.
It is time for some fresh inspiration for the Inky Paws Challenge #69 Birthday Theme. As I am totally into unicorns these days, I made a unicorn party, heavily inspired by the challenge photo.
Here is my card:
I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock, and applied stripes with distress inks using masking tape. I flicked some water and some paint drops too for more texture and spritzed it all with Tsukineko Shimmer Mist for a subtle sparkle.
Then I stamped and coloured the unicorns from the Believe in unicorns set, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I adhered them to the distressed panel.
I wanted some colourful sentiments, so I stamped the handwritten ones from Pretty Pink Posh Birthday set using Altenew inks.
A bit of glossy accent and Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen on the hair of the unicorns finished off this fairy tale-style card.
I hope I inspired you and you will participate in the Inky Paws Challenge #69. You have time till Friday (13/04/2018) to upload your projects to be eligible to win the 20 USD gift certificate to the Newton’s Nook online store.
I will also upload this project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (Trio of something) and Wednesday Challenge Happy Birthday.
See you tomorrow with another unicorn card.
Have an amazing day!
Today is my first card of the Unicorn Themed Card-Series, inspired by the MFT Sketch Challenge #379.
Here is my card:
I started with the Cloudy sky stencil, I sponged distress inks on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I used Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch to make the colourful clouds. After removing the stencil I sponged the same inks on the background for an ombre effect. I added water and ink droplets for more texture. I placed the stencil back and sprayed Altenew Iridescent ink spray over it for a subtle sparkle.
Then I stamped and coloured some images from the Magical Unicorns Birdie Brown stamp set. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
I added some dotted details, some Tonic Aqua Shimmer and glossy accent on some areas.
The sentiment I white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock, and die cut a puffy cloud border at a diagonal to follow the sketch.
When assembling the card I used 3D foam tape for more dimension on the upper half of the card.
I will link this project to the MFT Sketch Challenge #379 and to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Happy Birthday
Thanks so much for popping in and I hope you will follow the rest of my mini card series in April.
See you soon,
Happy Easter Monday for those of you who celebrate. It is time for a new Inky Paws Challenge, it is a birthday theme with a gorgeous inspirational photo.
It totally got stuck in my mind, I had to make a very colourful, rainbow birthday card.
I started with stamping all the different drinks from the Cocktail mixer stamp set, coloured them with Copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
I adhered them to a strip of white cardstock which I embellished with 2 stitched strips of black cardstock. Then I stamped some of the sentiments from the stamp set using coordinating ink colours.
I had some left over piece of rainbow patterned paper which I adhered to a white notecard and popped up the focal panel with 3D foam tape on it. Some Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen and glossy accents made the card really unique and fun to touch.
I hope I inspired you to participate in the Inky Paws Challenge #69. You have 2 weeks to link up your project on their blog to be eligible to win a 20 USD gift certificate to the Newton’s Nook Designs online store.
I will also link this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
See you soon with more spring cards,
