Happy Halloween – last card

halloween backdrop wm

Hello Everyone,

The day has come, it is Halloween and I am showing you my last card this year in the Last Minute Halloween Card-series. It was a fun week full of cards and bright colours 😀 I cannot deny myself 🙂

20171031_161828 wm

For the last card I used Lawn Fawn and Clearly Besotted images, coloured with Copics and fussy cut.

To build my scene I made a galaxy background first with watercolours and white acrylic paint. It is not showing much, only when you take a closer look. I also die cut a birch tree die (SSS) within a wonky stitched rectangle, which I popped up on the background using 3D foam tape. I die cut a large stitched rectangle from a purple plaid paper (Lawn Fawn) and adhered my scene on this.

The sentiment is from the Happy Howl-o-ween Lawn Fawn set, I white heat embossed it on a stitched black banner.

I used Wink of Stella clear shimmer pen (a bit less sparkly than the Spectrum Noir one) on the ghosts and the dress of my cute witch. I also emphasized some details with a black glaze pen and glossy accents.

I will upload this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

I hope you enjoyed my card series, I am thinking of doing the same soon for Christmas. Let me know in the comments below if you were interested! I appreciate your feedback so much!

Have a lovely fright night and Happy Halloween!

Happy Howl-o-ween

Hello Everyone,

As Halloween is close, I will still post some cards related to this holiday, just as inspiration. Personally we do not celebrate Halloween, but I love all the crafty products available on the market 🙂

20171014_171233 wm

I started with stamping the cute dogs from the Lawn Fawn Happy Howloween and Happy Howlidays stamp sets (this last one was an SSS Exclusive last year). I coloured them with Copics and die cut them with the coordinating dies.

20171014_171243 wm

To build the scene I used a cloud stencil and distress inks to make a sunset feel. I also sponged distress inks on 2 die cut grass borders, on the Leafy tree backdrop and a stitched rectangle frame. I sprinkled some water on them for more texture.

20171014_171223 wm

The sentiment is stamped directly on the clouds in black. I used 3D foam tape and liquid glue to assemble the card. I also stamped the Boo sentiment in a light grey ink on the background.

20171014_171201 wm

A bit of details as always: black glaze pen on the eyes and noses, white gel pen dots on the cheeks, Spectrum Noir shimmer pen on the pumpkins and hats and glossy accent on the bones.

I will submit this card to the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #14 Happy little critters.

I hope you like this card and will pop in tomorrow for more fun projects.

See you,

Encouragement card for kids

Hello Everyone,

Another post from me today for the Lawnfawnatics Challenge: Create a scene. If only I had more time, I love Lawn Fawn stamps and creating a scene, just life did not allow me to indulge in more crafty time.

Here is my card:

20170917_183117 wm

I started with stamping and colouring the cute animals from the Wild for you set using Copic and Shinhan markers, and cut them with the coordinating dies. I also used the blackboard from A good apple set. I embellished it with some little accessories from the same set and coloured it with alcohol markers to.

20170917_183132 wm

When it was die cut, I white heat embossed a sentiment from the So much to say stamp set on the blackboard.

20170917_183146 wm

To set the background I chose 2 patterned papers from the Sweater weather pad and adhered the blackboard first. I used 3D foam tape to mount the critters. I used a black glaze pen, a white gel pen and Spectrum Noir shimmer pen to add some details. I finished it with adding glossy accents to some parts of the images for more dimension.

20170917_183138 wm

I hope you like my card and will return tomorrow for more fun. Just a hint, it is gonna be freeeeeezing 🙂

Have a lovely evening,

Guest designer Jana

Good evening all,

I am popping in quickly with a guest designer post: my 6 year old daughter Jana was crafting with me the other day (when I did the rainbow heart stencilling) and borrowed the mask and my distress inks.

20170813_060637 wm

She loves bright colours and rainbows, so she copied the background I made. She sponged distress ink all around the heart mask on Bristol Smooth paper. When she was done, she wanted to spritz it with Ranger Perfect Pearls mist. She needed little help with pushing the button as it is hard for a kid.

20170812_165233 wm

The day after she stamped a butterfly she chose from a Lawn Fawn set (Flutter by) and coloured with her ICO markers.

20170813_163724 wm

She used the MISTI while stamping which allowed her to stamp it 5 times for a perfect impression.

20170813_152205 wm

I am just simply so proud of her. This cheerful creation shows how kids see our world: pretty, colourful and full of sparkle.

20170813_163751 wm

I hope this guest designer post cheered you up and will help you to have sweet dreams.

I will upload Jana’s project to the Simon Says Stamp Kids Summer Challenge

See you tomorrow with another fun post.

Sleep well,

Rainbow stencilled #1

Hello Everyone,

I was busy trying to catch up with the latest Online Card Classes Rainbow Maker. I am through Day 1 so far, and here is my homework.

20170813_163946 wm

I created a mask using masking paper which I cut down to 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches. I die cut a heart shape from it and after removing the release paper I adhered the heart mask on Bristol smooth cardstock. I applied Distress inks in rainbow order on the whole panel, then taped down the MFT Sunray  stencil and went back with the same inks.

20170813_164011 wm

For the images I used several Lawn Fawn sets (Elfie selfie and Love letters). I coloured them with Copics and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

20170813_164024 wm

The sentiment is MFT (Essential and More essential sentiments) and I made up the rest using alphabet dies from Lawn Fawn Cole’s ABC from glitter paper and some scrap white cardstock for more dimension.

20170813_164033 wm

A bit of sparkle and shine using Spectrum Noir Shimmer pen and glossy accents finished off this cheerful and funny card.

I will upload this project to the Lawnfawnatics #10 challenge Custom sentiments and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Happy Birthday and Wednesday Challenge For a child.

I hope you like my card and will pop in soon again to see what I have done with the other part of the mask.

See you tomorrow,

Life is good

Hello Everyone,

A couple of days passed without any news from me, I am sorry. Summer is mostly about the kids and spending time outside together. So definitely less time for blogging (I still craft a little every at just not as much as I want to). I am totally into summer cards now, I display them at our living room to add to the chilling mood.

20170716_182815 wm

This card was inspired by an ocean scene I saw on Pinterest. I wanted to make a card to capture the feels I had when I looked at that photo.

20170716_182904 wm

I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and sponged some distress inks using masking tape and a torn piece of printer paper. I made the sky, the ocean and the sand, flicked some water on the sand part along with different distress ink splatters to look more like sand. The ocean I misted with Tsukineko Shimmer mist for some sparkle.

20170716_182827 wm

I stamped a sentiment and some birds on the sky from Lawn Fawn Life is good set. I also added waves using the Marvy Snow marker and heated it up till it puffed. I gave the scene a dark brown mat and mounted it on a white card base.

20170716_182833 wm

The images from the So smooth Lawn Fawn set I stamped on marker friendly paper and coloured with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and adhered them to the scene using 3D foam squares. A bit of Spectrum Noir shimmer pen and glossy accents finished off the card.

20170716_182851 wm

I will link this project up to the Lawnfawnatics Summertime fun Challenge as well as to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Distress it.

I hope you like it and will return soon for more inspirational cards.

See you,

Zsofi

 

Sea you soon

Hello Everyone,

I am popping in with an ocean themed card, which was inspired by the current Lawnfanatics Challenge Watercolour.

20170702_151559 wm

I had a piece of a watercoloured background I made not so long ago using Gansai Tambi watercolours and cling foil. The technique is from the gorgeous Jennifer McGuire, the video tutorial is linked here. I added some Tsukineko Shimmer mist to it for more shine and gave it a black thin mat before gluing it on a white card base. I stamped the sentiment in black from the Mermaid for you set.

20170702_151634 wm

I stamped a couple of images from the Fintastic friends and Mermaid for you sets on Bristol smooth cardstock,  and coloured them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I used a Spectrum Noir shimmer pen to blend the colours and give them a little sparkle.

20170702_151611 wm

After adhering them to the ocean background I embellished the scene with a little gemstone heart (I coloured it with Copics to have a matching colour) and a few clear droplets from Studio Katia.

20170702_151729 wm

I will upload this project to the Lawnfanatics Challenge #7 Watercolor and  Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes too.

I hope you like my clean and simple card and will pop in again soon for more inspiration,

Sea you soon,

Zsofi
