I just could not stop blogging and decided to publish my card for MFT Camp Create Day 5 as well. I have finished all my cards for the camp yesterday and I wanted to show them all as quickly as possible. So now that my little boy is having a nap and my daughter is watching a princess cartoon I can write this post too.
So Day 5 is about Delightful die-cutting. I still had leftover white flowers from Day 1 and a pretty rainbow background I made a few weeks ago. They were just shouting for each other.
The background was done with a diagonal stencil, I applied distress inks in rainbow order. After removing the stencil, I went back with the same inks for a more subtle look. I saw Nichol Spohr doing it once and I had to try this technique.
I die cut it with a stitched scalloped border die and adhered a thin strip of purple foil cardstock on the top. It all went on a white top folding card base.
I glued 3 stitched white flowers on the rainbow background, used an MFT Thanks die cut from the same purple foil and stamped a sentiment under it in black.
A few matte enamel dots from Doodlebug in the middle of the flowers made the rainbow background pop even more.
Hope you got inspired to use up every little piece left from your cardmaking sessions. Come back tomorrow for some more fun.
I could not resist popping in again with a simple but very colourful thank you card. I had my new Studio Katia goodies still on my desk and wanted to make another card, this time I used the Mini Thank you set only.
I started with a Copic friendly paper and stamped several times the little butterfly on the right side of it slightly turning it to have a variation in the angle. I stamped the sentiment from the set more or less in the middle of the paper and trimmed the edge down to have a 4 and 1/4 by 4 inch piece. I coloured the butterflies with Copics.
I had a left over piece of Lawn Fawn plaid paper from my previous card which was perfectly matching the idea I had, so I adhered an inch piece to a white card base (I slightly trimmed it down to be 5 and 1/4 by 4 inch). I adhered the butterfly panel next to it and added a stitched strip of glitter paper where the 2 papers meet.
I added Spectrum Noir Clear Shimmer to the butterflies and a few rhinestones (I “stole” them from my daughter’s stash) in rainbow colours. A bit of glossy accents finished off the card.
Simple and easy and I only used a mini stamp set to make it. Super fun!
I hope you like it and will return soon for more inspiration.
Have sweet dreams,
Quickly popping in before I am heading to the swimming pool with my kiddos (I love summer vacation). I made a set of Thank you cards using some great products from Studio Katia. I have recently discovered Katia’s products, and I am amazed by the design, uniqueness and quality. Every single piece I have (not many yet) became my favourites in no time.
I started with Bristol Smooth cardstock, stamped and black heat embossed the fantastic floral image from the Thank you so much stamp set and the sentiment from the Mini Thank you set. I applied 2 colours of Distress Oxides on each panel: Peacock Feathers and Salty ocean, Abandoned Coral and Spiced Marmalade, Seedless Preserves and Worn Lipstick.
I went over the flower with a Spectrum Noir shimmer pen to get the oxidized look and some shimmer. As the oxides are more creamy due to the pigment characteristics, it left some residue on my embossing, but I could easily wipe it off with a paper towel.
I die cut the floral pieces with different stitched rectangle dies from Lawn Fawn. I matched the flowers with plaid patterned papers also from Lawn Fawn and covered the white card bases with these. I mounted the focal panels on the plaid backgrounds using 3D foam tape.
As a final touch I used some Studio Katia Sparkling Crystals all over the flowers.
I will upload this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Use plaid.
Hope you like my cards, leave me a comment which one is your favourite. I love to read what you think.
See you soon for more inspirational projects.
Have a great day,
Today is my first post as a member of the Inky Paws Challenge Design team as the new challenge #50 starts. It is a colour challenge:
And here is my card for this challenge:
I started with stamping the pretty full flower image from the NND Fanciful florals set with Versamark ink on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I poured white embossing powder on it and heated it till it melted. I repeated the process until I had a panel covered with shiny white flowers. Then I added Distress Oxide inks with a mini ink blending tool. I used Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade. I spritzed the panel with some water and dabbed it off with a paper towel.
I white heat embossed a sentiment from the same set on purple cardstock and gave it an orange mat. I used some Lawn Fawn Alphabet die (Cole’s ABC) to cut the rest of the sentiment from pink glitter paper.
I also made a scalloped white mat for the focal panel and adhered it to a pink A2 sized card front. I glued everything flat and embellished the sentiment banner with white matte enamel dots.
I hope you like my card and will play along with this fun colour combo on the Inky Paws Challenge blog.
See you there,
