Musical twist challenge

I’m really enjoying entering more card challenges this year. This card is for the current AAA Cards Case Game #134.

Images

  • Stamped Penny Black Jazzy Cats image onto paper appropriate to use with coloured pencils with Versafine Nocturne ink.
  • Colour with Prismacolor coloured pencils. Cat – 945 Sienna Brown, 997 Beige, 944, Terra Cotta, 937 Tuscan Red, 928 Blush Pink, 1014 Deco Pink. Cello – 941 Light Umber, 946 Dark Brown, 947 Dark Umber, Black.
  • Fussy cut by hand.

Tip 1: When fussy cutting image by hand you can be left with the white core of the cardstock showing around the edge. Run a black marker around the outside edge of the image to hide the white. This can hide some not so perfect cutting as well.

Other items

  • Using Lawn Fawn Little Music Notes die set, diecut the notes out of glitter cardstock.
  • Diecut the music paper lines out of foiled cardstock.
  • Adhere the notes to the music lines with liquid glue

Sentiment

  • Place the cardbase (kraft cardstock) in a Mini Misti.
  • Temporarily place the image and die cuts on the cardbase.
  • Position the Uniquely Creative Block Outline sentiment where you wish to stamp it and pick up with the misti door (see Tip 2 below)
  • Remove image and die cuts and stamp with Versafine Nocturne ink.
  • Coloured with Prismacolor coloured pencils – 905 Aquamarine, 1027 Peacock Blue.

Tip 2: The sentiment was orignally “You Totally Rock” but this was too long for what I wanted so I cut it apart and justs used the “You Rock”. Don’t panic too much doing this…you can still use the entire original sentiment another time – the cut ends will match up.

Background

  • When I fussy cut the cat image I cut off the whiskers as they would have been fiddly to cut around. To add them back into the image I just restamped the cat onto the background kraft cardstock and will adhere cutout image over the top.

Finishing

  • Using ATG adhere background to card base.
  • Adhere music notes to cardbase using liquid glue.
  • Adhere cat over prestamped image with dimensional foam.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

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.

Rainbow Challenge Card

My entry for the latest challenge over at AAA Cardsย CAS Game #120 – Somewhere Over The Rainbow.ย  I used two Waffle Flower Stamp Sets – Biking Girls and the sentiment from Gym Rat.

This is a fun layering stamp set and I used the following Distress Oxide inks to stamp the images in rainbow order – Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Lucky Clover, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet.ย  The bikes were stamped in Altenew Silver Stone and Industrial Diamond with the hair stamped in Altenew Espresso and Rocky Shore.
