Inspired by…time to write

New card to enter into the current Inspired by challenge. I made the deadline this time!

I decided to use the colour scheme, frame, envelope and clothesline for my card.

Images

  • Stamped Penny Black Critter Love image onto Hammermill cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black ink (copic friendly ink and cardstock).
  • Colour with Copics – W0, W1, W3, N0, N2, R20, R22, E50, E53, BG10, BG11, BG37, R14, R27, R59.
  • Fussy cut by hand.

Tip: 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.

Background

  • Die cut Kaisercraft frame out of Colourfield Snow White 250g cardstock (any brand will do).
  • Adhere the outside and inside frame to a piece of coloured paper that will show through the frame. I only place double sided tape on the solid piece of the inside frame so the cut out parts stick up a little bit from the background (see closeup photo below).

Other items

  • Diecut the baby clothes, My Favorite Things Bundle of clothes, out of Snow White cardstock and blend Distress Oxide Tea Dye over outside portions of die cuts.
  • Diecut heart, hangers and pegs pieces out of white cardstock and colour with matching copics.
  • Adhere the clothes to the hangers with liquid glue and the heart to the dress.

Finishing

  • Tie twine for line to red brads and apply to card front.
  • Position the mice and clothes to card front with dimensional foam.
  • Using ATG adhere background to card base.
  • Stamp sentiment inside the card. I used My Favorite Things Welcome Baby sentiment “AWESOME people make AWESOME babies”.

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.

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.

21st Congrats

A new card created for a family member. I wanted to try a new technique for the background I had seen recently and it worked perfectly…foiling with gel medium.

Images

I used the Waffle Flower Little Painters images as they are designed to poke out from behind another image, plus they’re very cute.

  • Stamp your images on copic friendly cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black or another copic friendly ink.
  • Colour with alcohol markers.
  • Cut out with matching dies, Brother Scanncut or fussy cut.

Background

  • Ink blend background with Distress Oxide Inks in Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon. Leave to dry.
  • Place stencil – My Favorite Things Star Celebration – onto card and tape down to crafting surface to stop stencil and card moving.
  • Using a palette knife spread Atelier Heavy Gel medium over stencil.
  • Remove stencil carefully and leave panel to dry.

Tip: The gel medium is dry when the gel becomes transparent and drying times will vary due to climate.

Foiling

  • Heat up laminator – Mine is the Heidi Swapp Mini Minc machine.
  • Place a sheet of foil over the dry panel. I used Gina K Design Heat Reactive Foil.
  • Place panel and foil in a carrier pouch – you can use a folded piece of copy paper if you don’t have the pouches.
  • Run through laminator. I set the heat at a 4. The heat will reactive the gel medium to make it sticky and the foil will adhere to it.

Extra items

Congratulations

  • Cut out My Favorite Things Congratulation circle die out of white cardstock and once out of blue fun foam. Using a blue marker that matches the blues in the card colour the die cuts.
  • Adhere the coloured die cut onto the foam one.
  • Cut out a piece of vellum with a circle die and adhere to the back of the stacked die cuts.

Foiling Numbers

  • Cut the numbers out of cardstock using Altenew Bold Numeral dies.
  • Use the negative portion like a stencil and place on top of another piece of cardstock.
  • Using a palette knife spread Atelier Heavy Gel medium over numbers then remove stencil.
  • Leave to dry, place foil over top and run through a laminator as you did for the background stars.
  • Fussy cut around the numbers or use the original dies to recut the foiled numbers.

Finishing

  • Adhere the critters when you want them positioned. The two back ones are adhered to the congratulations and the front one is adhered to the number.
  • Adhere the numbers with two layers of foam tape to give them dimension and make them slightly higher than the die cut words.
  • Finally adhere the central images to the background and adhere panel to side or top folded cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

MFT Card Challenge

I created this card for the current My Favorite Things Colour Challenge #108 and Sketch Challenge #418. The My Favorite ThingsΒ 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.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

Let’s play rugby

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 Things Double Slider Loop Slot dies for the first time and it worked perfectly.

lrm_export_2735134472966_20181022_1307279211626168282290833043.jpeg

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.

Hope you enjoyed learning about this card.
