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.
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.
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.
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.
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,
Today I wanted to share with you a fun technique using a stencil and one shade of distress ink (Blueprint Sketch). The card I made was inspired by the MFT Card Challenges: Sketch Challenge #344 and Colour Challenge 74#.
Here is my card:
I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and applied the distress ink on it with a mini ink blending tool. Then I temporarily taped down the MFT One way chevron stencil and applied more ink from the same colour. Before removing the stencil I spritzed the panel with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz. After letting it sit for a few minutes, I added white and black splatters with a paint brush.
I die cut a scalloped edged flag from the distressed piece of cardstock, I used some MFT border dies and partial die cutting to achieve this look. I also die cut a Happy sentiment from white pearlescent paper and 2 stitched strips from Greeneyed Monster glitter cardstock.
I stamped and coloured the cute hippos from the new Birdie Brown Happy Hippos stamp set and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. The colouring is done with Copics. A little bit of Spectrum Noir shimmer and glossy accents on the accessories made these images even more special. I also used a black glaze pen for the eyes of the hippos.
I heat embossed a sentiment from the Essential sentiments stamp set in white on a light grey cardstock and used 3D foam tape to mount the focal panel.
I will link this project up on the following challenges: MFT Sketch Challenge, MFT Colour Challenge, Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Happy Birthday and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Splatter it.
I hope you like my card and will return soon.
Happy Monday Everyone,
It is a new week starting which means it is time for my next inspiration card project for the current Inky Paws Challenge. This week we continue with the sketch challenge and one lucky winner can get a 20 USD gift certificate to the Newton’s Nook Designs online store. Let’s get started, shall we?
I have recently bought the new stencils from Newton’s Nook along with some new-to-me stamps/dies and I was itching to try them. For today’s card I made a masked background using painter’s tape and added Distress Oxide inks to the masked-around rectangles I created. I used the Waves stencil to add some more texture to each panel, I used the same inks for a tone-on-tone look.
I stamped and coloured the hot air balloon from the NND Newton Dreams of Paris set using Copic/Shinhan markers. I used the coordinating die to cut the image.
As I did not want to cover too much of the background I used a vellum tag (Studio Katia die, I just love this!). I stamped the sentiment from the NND Delightful Doxies stamp set on the bottom of this with StazOn black ink to avoid smearing.
Adhering vellum is always tricky, so I added Ranger Multi Matte Medium only on the back of the vellum where the image was covering the glue, not to show through. It makes the tag a bit floating, but it did not bother me. I think it adds to the airy feel of the design. As a finishing touch I covered the entire balloon with Spectrum Noir Shimmer pen and glossy accent to the hearts and tail of the balloon.
I hope you got inspired and will play along this week’s challenge. The sketch is so fun!
Thanks for your visit, come back soon for more inspiration.
The last week was a bit hectic and I had no time to blog. I am busy with some wedding cards for a friend of my mum, so get ready 🙂 But before I show those to you, I brought a birthday card I made for a sweet friend of mine to give to her mum.
I used Newton’s Nook Design Fanciful flowers and Altenew inks. I stamped 2 of the flowers on a piece of white cardstock with 2 shades of pink. I filled the empty places with the group of dots stamp using Versamark ink and embossed with silver embossing powder. I went back to the large flower with a Versamark pen and added the sticky ink to the middle and heat embossed with clear embossing powder for a pretty shine.
I used a strip of patterned paper on the side of a top folding A2 sized white card base, die cut a border from metallic pink cardstock (SSS Sunrise border die) and a strip of light pink glitter paper using Lawn Fawn Picket Fence die.
The Hungarian sentiment (Krokihobby) is silver heat embossed on a strip of vellum and it is wrapped around the flower panel. As final embellishment I added 3 clear sparkling gem stones to the smaller flowers.
I will upload this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Splatter it.
I hope you like my card and will return for more inspiration soon.
Good morning Everyone,
Happy Monday to you all! It is the last day of the month, I wonder how time can fly that fast. It is time for a new Inky Paws Challenge, #52 is a sketch challenge:
Here is my card as inspiration:
I knew I wanted to play with patterned papers so I went through my Doodlebug collection and selected a thin striped pattern in 3 different colours from the dot-grid-daisy stripe rainbow petite prints pad. I used a stitched rectangle die and partial die cutting technique to cut 3 rectangle, same width just different heights.
Then I cut a stitched rectangle out of Copic Xpress-it paper and stamped the cute kitty with the cupcake image from Newton Loves cake set, I used Memento Hot cocoa ink instead of my usual black. I also stamped the sentiment in green on the bottom of the panel. I used Copic markers to match the colours of the patterned papers.
I added a thin leftover strip from the partial die cutting instead of a ribbon and a die cut bow (Pretty Pink Posh die). A tiny jewel in the middle looked fancy enough as embellishment. I also used a bit of Spectrum Noir Shimmer pen on the cupcake and glossy accent on the stripes of the cupcake holder.
I used a dark brown cardstock to create the mats for the different elements and I popped up the focal panel using a thin 3D foam tape.
I hope you got inspired and will play along with us in the next 2 weeks on the Inky Paws Challenge. Apart from having fun you can also win a 20 USD gift certificate to the Newton’s Nook Designs online store.
I will link this project up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes too.
Hope to see you soon for another fun project!
Have a great day!
I am here with a quick post before we start our journey to a small lake with my kids for a day. This card I made for the latest Lawnfawnatics challenge #9, I used a bunch of Lawn Fawn products.
I started with a cross stitched rectangle cut from Copic friendly paper. I silver heat embossed a sentiment from the Ahoy matey stamp set on the bottom of it. I repeatedly stamped the cocktail glass with the little umbrella from the So Smooth set and coloured them with Copic markers.
I matted it with silver and black cardstocks and adhered it to a rainbow plaid paper covered A2 sized card base.
A little bit of Spectrum Noir shimmer pen and glossy accent finished off this cheerful card.
I will link it up also to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.
Hope to see you when i am back from a fun day at the lake.
Enjoy your day,
I am back today with a birthday card I made for an old friend of mine for her birthday. It was inspired by the current MFT Sketch Challenge #343.
Here is my card:
I stamped, coloured and die cut the fairy from the MFT Fairy happy stamp set. I used the coordinating die to cut a blank fairy from fun foam to make the image dimensional.
I recycled some MFT packaging to cut 5 stitched white ovals and stacked them together. The sentiment I white heat embossed on a dark pink stitched banner (I need to use the partial die cutting technique to make the banner a bit longer to fit the sentiment)
I used polka dot patterned paper as the background, added a strip of white glitter tape and a stitched strip of the same dark pink cardstock. I used the Lawn Fawn Picket fence die for this.
I popped up the sentiment banner with 3D foam tape to match the height of the oval frame. A little bit of glossy accent , white gel pen dots, tiny pearls on the flowers and a few white glitter drops finished off this girly card.
I love the way it turned out. My daughter loves it too, so I will need to make another one for her as well 😀
I will upload this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes as well.
Hope you got inspired and will return soon for more inspiration,
