I wanted to share with you a really summery card inspired by the Seven Hills Crafts monthly challenge.
I wanted to use my new goodies I received from SHC a week or so ago. I stamped and coloured with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers the MFT Beach babe image. I used the coordinating dies to cut her out.
Added some sparkle (Tonic Aqua shimmer pen) and shine (Glossy Accents), and used a black glaze pen on her eyes.
Then I worked on the background on a stitched rectangle cut from Bristol Smooth paper. The inspirational photo really made me try to make a pink sandy beach. I used Distress Oxide inks and masking tape. For the water I tore the masking tape for an uneven edge and made sure that there is a tiny white gap between the sandy beach and the sea to look more realistic. I used the MFT Waves stencil to add the waves.
For the sentiment I stamped Hello in black and adhered under it a die cut Sunshine. I cut it twice, once from white and once from pink glitter paper and layered them a bit offset for a shadow effect.
I popped up the girl with 3D foam squares and hand drew some birds in the background. And my card is finished. I really love the pink-teal look.
I will upload this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Bright and Cheerful too.
Thanks for stopping by today and hope to see you soon again.
Have a lovely weekend,
I did not have time to share with you the card I made for my sweet husband for Father’s Day – it can actually serve as an everyday card too. I used the MFT Sketch Challenge #389 as inspiration for the layout.
I started with die cutting a white stitched rectangle and die cut the You are my favourite die on the right side. Then I popped up the panel on an aqua striped patterned paper using 3D foam tape.
I stamped some of the bears from the Bitty Bears stamp set, coloured them with Copics and cut them with the coordinating dies. I mounted them on the background using 3D foam squares. I added some extra shimmer and shine to the balloon and present the bears are holding with a Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen and glossy accents.
I also used a black glaze pen on the eyes and noses, the latter got a bit of glossy accent to for more dimension.
The sentiment is from the All About Mom stamp set, white heat embossed on a thin strip of chocolate cardstock.
I will link this up to the MFT Sketch Challenge #389. I hope you like my card and will return soon for more inspiration.
In Hungary we do not have officially Father’s Day which is so unjust in my opinion. So I plan to celebrate with my kids and the heroes of our family on Saturday. I made already 2 cards which my kids can give them: one for grandpa and one for daddy. The layout was inspired by the current MFT Sketch Challenge #388.
I stamped the images from the Giraffing me crazy set, coloured them with Copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies.
I cut 2 simple white tags and glued the giraffes on them. On one card I placed them in a way that they look like hugging each other. So cute!
I heat embossed the chosen sentiments (one from the stamp set, the other from the More Essential sentiments set) in white on dark cardstock scraps and cut some banners. I adjusted the length with the partial die-cutting technique.
I chose patterned papers as backgrounds and popped up the tags with 3D foam tape. I embellished the cards with a little enamel heart on each. I could not resist adding google eyes to the giraffes and used glossy accent on their dots for a special look.
I hope you like it and will return soon for more inspiration.
I am popping in today with a last minute card for the current MFT Sketch Challenge #387.
I started with stamping an colouring the funny seagulls from the MFT Seaside seagulls set using Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out, adorned them with funny google eyes and added glossy accent to their beaks.
For the background I masked off 3 stripes on Bristol Smooth paper using painter’s tape. I applied Distress inks (Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Broken China). Then I taped down the MFT Abstract stencil and went back with the same inks. Before removing the stencil I sprayed it with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz for a subtle sparkle.
When my panel was all dry I heat embossed in white 3 of the sentiments form the same stamp set.
Finally I used 3D foam squares to mount the seagulls and added some clouds too with liquid glue.
I will also link this up to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge All things bright and beautiful and Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
I hope you like this card and will join me next time too for more fun projects.
It is my second post today, as I wanted to share with you a mermazing birthday card I created for the current MFT sketch #384 and Colour challenge #93.
I created an alcohol inked background with blue, purple and mint alcohol inks. I spritzed it with a bit of rubbing alcohol for more texture. I adhered it to white card base and added a stitched rectangle frame.
Then I stamped and coloured the mermaid from the Mermazing stamp set. I used Copics, and the coordinating dies to cut it out. Added some glossy accent and some Stickles for the extra shine on the tail.
The seaweeds were stamped with matching colourful inks. I used Press and Seal to help with the arrangement and glued them in place on my card. The mermaid was popped up with 3D foam squares.
I also white heat embossed a sentiment on a strip of blue violet cardstock from the More essentials sentiments set. To finish it off I added some iridescent bubbles from Studio Katia.
I will upload this card to the MFT Sketch Challenge and Colour Challenge.
Hope you like my card and will check back tomorrow for some out of this world fun!
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.
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,
