Boy, a week goes fast…I was too late to enter this card into the previous CA(s)E this sketch challenge but here it is anyway.
Step 1 – Mask the shape with your preferred masking material.
Step 2 – Ink blend distress oxide inks over background. I used Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire.
Step 3 – Die cut sun shape from Concord & 9th Shine On stamp and die set.
Step 4 – Ink blend Distress Oxide inks on a separate piece of cardstock and adhere behind die cut opening. I used Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Wild Honey.
Step 5 – Stamp images onto copic friendly cardstock (I use Hammermill brand) with copic friendly ink – Momento Tuxedo Black.
Step 6 – colour images with alcohol markers.
Step 7 – I used my Brother Scan n Cut DX1200 to cut around images. Otherwise you can die cut with coordinating dies or fussy cut.
Step 8 – Add extra details. I had to add sand for the Sandy Toes so used three different shades of Altenew Inks to suggest sand. I also added some white gel pen to shorts and blue glitter gel pen to hat.
Step 9 – Stamp sentiment. I laid out my images without adhering to check exact location of sentiment and stamped sentiment with my Mini Misti.
Step 10 – Adhere images with dimensional foam to pop up images.
Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

I created this card for the current My Favorite Things Colour Challenge #108 and Sketch Challenge #418. The My Favorite Things Otterly Love You stamp set is so cute. The stamp images were coloured with Copic markers and die cut with the matching dies.
I started by dry embossing the larger Dienamics Stitched Dome nested die onto the background cardstock and masked off the edges so I could ink blend distress oxide Chipped Sapphire over the shape. I then die cut a smaller dome out of white cards stock and used the Dienamics Ocean Waves dies to cut the top of the dome into wave shapes and added some extra wave shapes. I then blended Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire over the die cut. To make the waves stand out a bit more I also used the waves dies to cut some vellum and offset them behind the waves.
Once the front die was completed I sprinkled water over it and patted it dry with a paper towel to give a watery effect. The sentiment was heat embossed with Hero Arts White embossing powder.
Tip: Make sure the distress oxide ink is completely dry before heat embossing. To check if it’s dry tip some embossing powder over the card and tip off. If any remains then it’s not quite dry. Use a heat tool to dry completely or leave to air dry for longer.
Finally, I added some Liquitex irridescent medium with a brush to the heart and the fish and coloured over the otters nose and eyes with a black marker to make them darker.
Playing along with my first card challenge for 2019 at CAS(E) this Sketch #302. I used Altenew Get Well Soon stamp set and my Brother Scanncut DX1200 for the name.
Firstly, I blended Distress Oxide Inks over the background (Strathmore Bristol Paper) in Wild Honey and Crushed Olive. I then stamped the three honeycomb images in the stamp set with Altenew Honey Drizzle and Warm Sunshine.
I had designed the name with my Scanncut using the draw and cut feature and coloured with copics. The flowers and bees were stamped on copic friendly cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured with the following copic colours.
Hello again. This is a custom order I created recently. Happy I managed to purchase some of the Lily of The Valley digistamps before they stopped selling them and this image was a perfect fit for the recipient – Rugby Mad. Wanted to also try the My Favorite ThingsDouble Slider Loop Slot dies for the first time and it worked perfectly.
The Mama Elephant Swinging Borders and Lots of Letters sets were the perfect size to add in the corner as was the Sun from Concord and 9th Shine On. Of course, my go to cloud stencil from My Favorite Things along with their grass stencil makes the perfect background.
Finally used one of those techniques shown on YouTube (you know the myriad of crafty video tutorials we all watch but never get round to trying)…and it turned out better than I imagined.
I used the Christmas Rose Bouquet from WPlus9 and the dies from Concord & 9th Season of Cheer. After colouring the image that I had stamped twice onto copic friendly cardstock all that was left to do was complete the frosting technique.
Before I committed to frosting the panel I decided to try my glitter on a smaller image just in case it covered up too much of the colouring.
The frosting technique is just double sided adhesive (I used Elizabeth Craft Tape which is very thin) adhered over the image and then glitter sprinked on top and burnished with you finger. Shake any extra off.
TIP: Head over to Therese Calvird’s blog at http://www.lostinpaper.com if you want to watch a video of this technique. or find her on YouTube.
Hope you try this soon. I’ll definitely be making a few more cards using this technique.
I had a custom order to complete recently and this is one of the cards I made. Loved using the Mama ElephantThe Dog’s Woof and Lots of Letters stamp sets. I really wanted to try to create different looks for the dogs and had great fun trying out some copic colouring techniques. I’m not sure which is my favourite but one does look suspiciously like it has chicken pox!
This card also has an interactive element which was pretty easy to create. I used the My Favorite ThingsSurf and Turf set. The photo below shows what appears when the slider is pulled – Mama ElephantCelebration Balloons.
Fun birthday card using Gerda Steiner Bats stamp set. The images are copic coloured. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts monthly kit and I thought it suited the vampire theme.
The background is ink blended with Ranger Distress Oxide Inks on Bristol cardstock. Super easy to blend on that type of cardstock.
The silhouette bats were stamped in Versafine Clair ink in Nocturne and embossed with clear embossing powder. I realised I had stamped one of the bats upside down so added flight lines to show it flying down from the top.
