Mother’s Day Florals

Hello Everyone,

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.

MFTflower_MD_04

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.

See you,

Mirror die cut – IPC #70

Inky Paws ChallengeHello Everyone,

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.

IPC70_zsm02_blog

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.

IPC70_zsm02_03

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.

IPC70_zsm02_02

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.

Birthday Unicorn – ft. Neat and Tangled

Unicorn_FB

Hello Everyone,

I am back with another unicorn card in my series. This time I am featuring Neat and Tangled Magical Day.

N&T_unicorn_01

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.

N&T_unicorn_02

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.

N&T_unicorn_04

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.

See you,

I am donuts about you – IPC#70

Inky Paws ChallengeHello Everyone,

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.

IPC70_zsm_01blog

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.

IPC70_zsm01_detail03

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.

IPC70_zsm01_detail02

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.

Unicorn card set – Lawnfawnatics #26

Unicorn_FB

Hello Everyone,

To continue the Unicorn Card Series, I made a set of 4 cards inspired by the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #26.

Here is my card set:

LF_unicorn_cardset_01

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.

LF_unicorn_cardset_03

LF_unicorn_cardset_02

LF_unicorn_cardset_04

LF_unicorn_cardset_05

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.

LF_unicorn_cardset_06

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.

LF_unicorn_cardset_08

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.

LF_unicorn_cardset_09

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.

LF_unicorn_cardset_07

I will upload this project to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #26 Card sets and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Add Some Texture.

Magical birthday – ft Avery Elle

Unicorn_FB

Hello Everyone,

Another card in my Unicorn Card Series, this time featuring Avery Elle.

AveryElle_unicorn_01

I started with the background by stencilling the colourful clouds. I used Distress Inks and MFT Cloud stencil.

AveryElle_unicorn_02

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.

AveryElle_unicorn_03

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.

AveryElle_unicorn_04

It was the perfect card for a unicorn birthday gift pack.

AveryElle_unicorn_05

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.

Unicorn party – IPC#69

Unicorn_FB

Hello Everyone,

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.

26815189_10155694295756311_8572599981006706149_n

Here is my card:

IPC69_zsm02_IG

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.

IPC69_zsm02_04

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.

IPC69_zsm02_02

I wanted some colourful sentiments, so I stamped the handwritten ones from Pretty Pink Posh Birthday set using Altenew inks.

IPC69_zsm02_01

A bit of glossy accent and Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen on the hair of the unicorns finished off this fairy tale-style card.

IPC69_zsm02_05

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!
