Inspired by…

New card I was going to enter into the current Inspired by challenge…but once again I missed the cut off date! Oh well here it is anyway.

Started off with a completely different design idea but couldn’t get it to work how I wanted so decided to go literal with the theme and sketch. I used the Hero Arts Monthly Kit April 2018. Love how it all turned out.

Images

  • Stamped cacti onto Hammermill cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black ink.
  • Colour with Copics – YG11, YG13, YG25, G21, G24, YG67,G12, G14, G16, V05, RV66, R20, R22, R24
  • Diecut with matching dies

Background

  • Ink blended Distress Oxide Inks (Twisted Citreon, Bundled Sage and Mowed Lawn) over Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock.
  • Apply three strips of double sided tape over cardstock. Remove one strip of release tape and sprinkle glitter over. Burnish with your finger or a bone folder. Tap off excess glitter.
  • Repeat the application of glitter using different shades of green.

Sentiment

  • Stamp the banner and sentiment onto cardstock.
  • Diecut with matching die.
  • As I used a non copic friendly ink I decided to shade the banner with Chameleon pencils but any coloured pencil will do.

Finishing

  • As I wanted to make a paper bag for the cactus (as in the photograph inspiration) I used the tissue that came with the kit. Pretty cute aye!
  • Using ATG adhere background to card base.
  • Adhere the bag and cactus with the sentiment last.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

Retro Girl

Such a fun theme at the current Time Out Challenges – Retro with the optional twist of One Layer. My Retro take on this challenge was incorporating Hippie and Flower Power…I had the perfect digistamp from Lily of the ValleyThoroughly Modern Misses June.

Images

  • Printed digistamp onto Hammermill cardstock with inkjet printer. This is safe for colouring with alcohol markers.
  • Colour with Copics – B23, B18, B26, R02, R05, R27, Y11, Y32, Y26, E0000, E00, E02, BV00, N0, N2, N4, C1.

Background

  • Cut out mask of girl (See ‘Tip’ below).
  • Die cut background mask out of copy paper (thin) using Penny Black Antique Frames dies.
  • Place masks over printed image (see image ‘Masks‘ below).
  • Stamp My Favorite Things Bundles of Blossoms background stamp over masks.
  • I then dry embossed using the same Antique Frames die.

Tip for creating mask of digistamp: I scanned image with my Brother Scan n Cut DX1200 and cut out of post it label tape. Otherwise, print out image again on copy paper and hand cut.

Masks

Sentiment

  • I had the perfect sentiment from the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit March 2018. The shape fitted the image perfectly.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Versafine Claire Nocturne.

Finishing

  • I wanted to spotlight the image so coloured around the outline with Copic Marker ‘C1’.
  • Using ATG adhere background to card base.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

Kiss kiss kiss

When I sign off letters or cards I always put three kisses, so this card came together perfectly for me. I’ll be entering it in the current challenges – Case this Sketch #307 and Southern Girls Challenge.

The images from the the new stamp company The Rabbit Hole Designs are so sweet so I know I’ll be using this set, ‘Love you More’, a lot.

Images

  • Stamp images on cardstock suitable for alcohol markers using Momento Tuxedo Black.
  • Coloured with G00, YG41, G02, G05, R32, R35, R37, B93, B95, B97, BG45, BG49, W1, W3, W5, W7, Black, E11, E15, E18 E000, E00, E02, E04, R22
  • Cut out with Brother Scan n Cut DX1200.

Die cut

  • Die cut Birch Press Big You Sugar Script with a black shadow and
    Rosies Studio Arabesque patterned paper.

Sentiment

  • Place Love and Kiss in place and pick up with Misti door.
  • Stamp with red and grey Altenew mini ink cubes.
  • I moved the cardbase to the left in my Misti to line up the 2nd and 3rd kiss word.

Tip: Using the original Misti (6 1/2″ x 8 1/2″) allows you to move the card around rather than change the position of the stamp – useful for sentiments.

Finishing

  • Place panel on card base using ATG.
  • Adhere die cut with double sided tape and image with foam adhesive tape to give some dimension.
  • Added Glossy Accents to the glasses and Wink of Stella Clear to the balloons.

Snail mail

Trying to enter more card challenges this year and so far going well. This card was created for the current AAA Cards CAS Game #132. The challenge was to use up to one third of the card front and optional twist of ‘Masking’.

Images

I received my first subscription from Uniquely Creative –December stamp kit based in Australia and used two of the stamp sets – Standing Strong and Garden Fairies.

  • Stamp images on preferred cardstock with appropriate ink. As I was using Inktense Pencils I needed cardstock that could handle a small amount of water and I used waterproof ink from Versafine Claire in Nocturne.
  • See masking steps below to see how I placed the snail in front of the flower.
  • Colour images with preferred medium. Flower coloured with Fuschia and Mauve. Snail coloured with Willow, Baked Earth, Bark and Indian Ink. Background coloured with Iris Blue and Bright Blue.

Sentiment

  • Stamp “Bloom” with Versamark clear ink and sprinkle with Zing Blue metallic embossing powder.
  • Shake off excess powder and heat set with heat gun.
  • Stamp rest of sentiment in Stazon ink – great for vellum.

Masking technique using a Misti

  1. Stamp image you want in the foreground.
  2. Stamp image again on asking paper and cut out. Place on top of first stamped image.
  3. Position background image stamp over top of masked image to get alignment correct. Pick up stamp with Misti door.
  4. Stamp background image.
  5. Remove masking paper…ta dah!

Finishing

  • Cut image panel down.
  • Wrap sentiment vellum around cut down panel and secure at back with tape.
  • Adhere panel to coloured cardstock with double sided tape.
  • Adhere panel to casebase with ATG gun or your preferred adhesive.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

Have a beautiful day…

A friend is turning 60 shortly and I found the perfect images to use from Mo’s Digital Pencil. I used three digi stamps – Eileen, Potters Corner and Garden Shed Background.

Images

All the images were printed with my inkjet printer onto copic friendly cardstock so I could colour them all with alcohol markers. The potters corner files comes with each item separated so you can build the scene as you want. On the front of the card I added the pot plants in the window and the grow sign onto the front of the shed. As I wanted the scene to be a smaller size the fence didn’t reach the edge of the panel so I freehand drew three more bushes to fill out the scene.

I added the sentiment on the front by stamping a sentiment from My Favorite Things You give me butterflies stamp set onto coloured cardstock with Versamark Embossing Ink. I sprinkled Zing Copper Embossing Powder over the sentiment and heat embossed with an Ozito Heat Tool.

Inside card

The images I used for the inside are cut out with my Brother Scanncut DX1200. I wanted the inside of the card to reflect the inside of the garden shed so I hand drew the panelling of the walls with 4 shades of Copic Markers – W0, W1, W3, W5. The floor was ink blended with Distress Oxide Scattered Straw and Brushed Corduroy. I flicked on some extra Brushed Corduroy to give a more dirt look to the floor.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.
