Hi there. Dropping in to share a super QCAS (Quick Clean and Simple) birthday card.
To start, a stitched rectanglewas die cut from Neenah cardstock. Stamped the banner followed by the bear with Memento black ink and then coloured with Copics.
Since the bear is running across with the banner in hand, motion marks were added with a grey marker to show movement. Mounted the panel to a white top folding landscape card base and clear shimmer was added to the flags to finish.
Hi there! I have more birthdays coming up, so I am poppin’ in with a floral birthday card today. Lately, I’ve been admiring all the beautiful pencil coloured creations, so I took the leap and coloured a larger, more detailed image. It’s definitely labour intensive compared to colouring with Copics, but definitely satisfying once completed. Here’s my card.
Once colouring was done and with the stamp still positioned in the MISTI, re-stamped the image with VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. After all that time it took to colour, I did not want to cover any part of it up, so white heat embossed the sentiment above.
Die cut it with an A2 stitched rectangle, then mounted the panel to a white top folding card base. Keeping it CAS, added white dot details with a white gel pen and clear shimmer to finish.
Hi there! My friend Sandie’s birthday is today. Happy birthday, Sandie! Hope you enjoyed your special day! I’m not sure if she has received her birthday card from me yet, but in my haste to mail it off, I forgot to take pictures of it. However, I had extra gold streamers leftover, so I just re-made the card, except I changed up the sentiment. This photo was my source of inspiration.
First step was to create the confetti. Did this by placing a Falling Snow stencil on an A2 size mixed media stitched rectangle and inked with VersaMark. Heat embossed with gold embossing powder, then used a mini blending tool to blend on Wilted Violet, Dusty Concord and Black Soot distress inks. Wiped off excess ink from the embossed areas with a tissue.
Next die cut the streamers from gold foil paper. The ‘hooray’ was die cut twice — once from gold glitter paper and the other from a purple scrap piece. Stacked and offset them for a shadow effect and then stamped the other part of the sentiment with Archival Violet ink. Mounted the panel on a white top folding card base to finish.
Hello there! Since I needed another birthday card and I couldn’t resist playing with those cute little monkeys again, I made this fun little rainbow birthday card.
First, stamped the monkeys on X-press It paper with Copic-friendly black ink, coloured with Copics then die cut out with the matching dies. Used a label maker for the ‘HB2U’ sentiment.
Next, die cut a grid window from Whisper White cardstock and trimmed down to six squares. Cut a rectangle piece also from Whisper White cardstock the same size as the grid and blended Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean and Twisted Citron distress oxide inks using a mini blending tool. Overlapped the colours to get secondary colours for a fuller rainbow effect. Lightly spritz with water and blot with a paper towel to add some texture.
Adhered all elements onto a stitched A2 Whisper White panel based on the sketch #336 from Freshly Made Sketches. Attached the panel to a white top folding card base and added clear shimmer to finish.
Hello there! So after three weeks (gotta love the US-Canadian postal service 😝), my Mama Elephant order finally arrived and I couldn’t wait to ink up the Little Monkey Agenda stamp set to create this CAS birthday card.
To start, stamped the monkeys on X-press It paper with Memento black ink, coloured with Copics and die cut out with the coordinating dies. These little monkeys were a bit challenging to colour due to their small size, but I persevered. 😉 Next die cut the stitched rectangle panel with the trio of peek-a-boo windows from Whisper White cardstock. Black heat embossed the sentiment with clear glitter embossing powder.
For some colour behind the windows, ink blended Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueorint Sketch distress oxide inks on a piece of Bristol smooth paper with a mini blending tool. Spritz with water and dabbed with a paper towel for a bit of texture. Adhered the monkeys, then mounted the panel with fun foam on a white top folding card vase for some dimension to finish.
These monkeys make me smile and I have other plans for them. 😂 Thank you for dropping in. Have a wonderful day!
