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.

Have a Mice Day

A fun card made for a friend turning 60. I love Penny Black images but have only just purchased my first stamp sets (more than one of course) that I managed to source in New Zealand. This one is from the Especially Micey set.

Images

  • Stamp images onto copic cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink.
  • Coloured with Copics W0, W1, W3, W5, B00, B000, B02, B24, B26, B29, R14, R 27, R46, R89, V99, R20, R00.
  • Cut out with Brother Scanncut DX1200.

Die cuts

  • Colour white cardstock with blue and red copics.
  • Cut Happy Birthday out of blue cardstock using Penny Black Happy Birthday die. Cut again out of blue craft foam and adhere cardstock on top of fun foam.
  • Using Lawn Fawn Party Balloons dies cut a heart balloon out of red card.
  • Using My Favorite Things Little Numbers Dienamics cut “60” and the baloon string out of Satin Silver cardstock. Adhere to balloon shape.

Background

  • Using Taylored Expressions Cross Stitch embossing folder emboss
    warm grey cardstock. This matches the Warm Greys used to colour the mice.

Finishing

  • Using ATG adhere background to card base.
  • Adhere the mice and balloon to card with dimensional foam tape. I used thin foam so the card wasn’t too bulky with the extra thickness of the craft foam.
  • Using Ranger Multi Medium Matte liquid glue adhere Happy Birthday.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

Trio from Sunny Studio Stamps

Loving this Sunny Studio stamp set ‘Breakfast Puns‘.

Card Number One

This could be an unconventional engagement/wedding card don’t you think. The frame was a die cut by Craftwise and I removed the letters, coloured them with a copic and replaced them back into the frame. The patterned paper was from Core’dinations Dots and Stripes.

Card Number Two

Simple layout but I love it. The LOVE diecut is from the same die set as Card Number One and I cut it out in black glitter cardstock with layered it with craft foam behind to give some dimension. The patterned paper was from Rosie’s Studio Soul and Shine.

Card Number Three

I Loaf You…I really do! Simple layout again and added the black glitter heart left over from the LOVE diecut in Card Number Two. This patterned paper is from Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow paper pad.

Colorthrowdown #454

Good morning everyone.  Here is my card for the current Colorthrowdown challenge #454.

Colorthrowdown 454

I used the Lawn Fawn ‘So Smooth’ stamp set and decided to keep it simple with some spot colouring with Copics and ink.  The sentiment was heat embossed with Zing Metallic Embossing Powder.

A bit of Cute Laundry

I’m sure we all love a baby card.  The sentiments in the My Favorite ThingsWelcome Baby’ are so much fun and mix so well with the Lawn FawnLittle Bundle’ images.   I wanted something simple and clean…(pun intended 🙂 ).  I thought by having a circle framed opening it would look like a front opening washing machine.

Cute Laundry-1-5

All the images are copic coloured in neutral colours for a boy or girl.  I cut the grey frame with My Favorite Things DienamicsStitched Circle Frames‘ die 3 times and glued them together to create a raised element.  As I was originally going to make it a shaker card I adhered a piece of transparency over the back of the opening but when I put it together I felt that the images didn’t ‘shake’ well so I changed it to the images simply being adhered to the background.

Cute Laundry-1-2

To add some texture to the card I used American Crafts textured cardstock (which I have a big stack of!!)  for the frame and behind the clothes.  I also popped up the cardfront with white craft foam and layered the clothes to give some extra dimension.  I then stamped the sentiment in Altenew Crisp dye ink in ‘Lagoon’.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.
