This is my second post today as it is my turn on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog. I love Fall and the nature around us is the best inspiration with all the beautiful colours.
I have recently discovered the Shades of Autumn stamp set and used a bunch of Distress inks to stamp them on cream cardstock in random order. I chose Autumn colours: Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Bundled Sage, Gathered Twigs and Aged Mahogany.
The stamp is created in a way that it adds a ton of texture, how beautiful and unique!
Then I used the postage stamp die from Frameworks to cut it down.
I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink on top of the leaves and poured WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle embossing glitter on top and heat set it. I wanted it to stand out more, so i shifted the cardstock bit an stamped the sentiment again with brown ink to create a shadow.
I love the gold sparkle so much that I decided to add some dots to the leaves too. I used an embossing pen to add the dots and the same embossing powder to give them the glittery gold sparkle.
I finished the card with adhering the panel to a top folding kraft card base and tied brown twine around it on the top.
I hope you got inspired by my card and will pop in for something cute tomorrow!
I am back again with a very clean and simple yet cheerful card I made for Pink and Main. We all were in a situation when we needed a quick and easy birthday card and we could not find any in our stash. This card can be pulled together within short time and with changing the colours could be used for guys too.
I am back today with a pretty floral birthday card featuring the new Daisy dies from Pink and Main. I am a huge fan of flowers and love to make card with die cuts only. Well, this one has a bit of stamping but it comes together so fast and easy.
First I started with die cutting the Daisy 3 times from white cardstock and layered them on top of each other tiny offset for a full look. I also die cut 2 leaves from pastel green cardstock and the middle of the flower from yellow cardstock (both layers).
After assembling the flower and placing every element on the tag, I decided to white heat emboss the rest of the sentiment above the die cut word.
I kept the embellishments to the minimum to allow the pretty daisy to be the star of the card. I added some glitter Nuvo drops to the holes in the middle of the flower and tied a yellow twine around the card on the top.
I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy birthday card and will try this design yourself. If you vary the sentiments and the colours of the flowers, you can create a bunch of clean and simple cards to add to your stash.
Today I brought you a fun stencilled card as #6 in my Under the sea Card Series.
I just love the Tropical fish stencil from Newton’s Nook Designs and wanted to try a fun technique with it. I placed it on white cardstock and mixed some Distress inks with Ranger Transparent Glossy texture paste. I used a spatula to apply it over the stencil making sure that the colours mix with each other. I removed the stencils and washed it immediately under running warm water.
Until my background was drying I die cut a stitched rectangle and the Celebrate word die (Sugar Pea Designs) 3 times from Blue Violet cardstock. I stacked them together for more dimension using Ranger Multi Matte Medium with a precision tip.
I also stamped another sentiment from the Sunny Studio Oceans of Joy stamp set on a thin white strip using Blue Violet ink. I gave this an aqua mat to help stand out from the background.
I assembled the card on a white card base and popped up the sentiment strip with 3D foam squares. I love the shiny finish of those gorgeous fish! Such a unique stencil!
I hope you like my card and will pop in again tomorrow for 2 more cards featuring Newton’s Nook Designs (shhh…it is gonna be full of mermaids!)
I had a very simple and clean card design in mind, therefore I clear heat embossed the cup from the CAS Coffee First stamp set on a strip of aqua cardstock. I also heat embossed with the same clear embossing powder a sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps, in the middle I die cut the Latte word with its shadow from coloured cardstock. I layered 3 die cuts on top of each other for more dimension.
I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils and added glossy accent to the heart on the mug. I gave this strip a brown thin mat, adhered it to a patterned paper, which also have a brown mat. Then I mounted it all on a kraft card base.
To finish off the design I stamped 3 hearts above the mug from the CAs stamp set using brown ink.
I hope you like this simple card design, perfect for guys too. I have some more coffee cards for the hop ready, so make sure to check back soon.
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 am popping in today with a quick post for the almost finishing MFT sketch Challenge #367. It is my second card in my Love Themed Card series this year.
My friend, Amy Yang inspired me to re-visit paper piecing. I recently ran into a nice paper pack at our local discount store (Aldi) and the simple red-white dots one caught my eye. I cut a 1,5 inch strip of it to cover part of a white card base.
I die cut 2 stitched rectangles: a red and a white one. On the latter I stamped the cute girl from a retired MFT Pure Innocence set and coloured with Copics. Then I stamped the image on the patterned paper again and cut the dress out with scissors. I ran a black marker on the edges before adhering it to the coloured one.
I stamped the sentiment from the same set in Versamark ink and white heat embossed on a black strip of cardstock. I made it to a banner and popped up on the card front with 3D foam tape.
A bit of stickled on the shoes and heart and a tiny amount of glossy accent on the hair charm finished it off.
