Hello again. I am quickly popping in with a second post today to share a non-traditional colour CAS Christmas card.
The penguin image was stamped with Memento black ink on X-Press It paper, coloured with Copics and die cut out with the coordinating die (my alignment was off, so I had to do some fussy cutting to try to even it out). The sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock.
The background was created by ink smooshing Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Inks on watercolor paper, then die cutting with a circle die.
A Zig Zag Stitched panel was die cut from watercolor paper and adhered to a white top folding card base. All the pieces were assembled and mounted to it. Clear shimmer and some sequins finished off the card.
And that’s it for today. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day or night wherever you are.
Happy Monday everyone. Today I am sharing a CAS birthday card created for my sweet crafty friend Nancy. Her birthday is today! Unfortunately, I didn’t send it early enough and she did not get this before leaving on her trip… so surprise, Nancy! Hope you’re enjoying your birthday getaway. For her card, I brought back my favourite Buddy image and paired him with a NBUS happy die. Love these triple layer word dies.
An A2 size stitched rectangle was die cut from X-press It paper. Buddy was stamped with Memento black ink then coloured and shaded with cool gray Copic markers.
The word happy and first layer were die cut from white cardstock. The happy word diecut was placed back into the negative piece to make it easier to colour it with a mini blending tool and distress inks.
The bottom happy layer was die cut from black cardstock and another happy word was die cut from white cardstock to be stacked. Birthday was white heat embossed on a scrap of black cardstock. The stitched panel was mounted to a top folding card base before the sentiments were adhered. Clear shimmer on the pastel coloured happy finished the card.
Hello everyone. This is the third year My Favirite Things (MFT) is running their Card Design Superstar contest. This year there are three categories. This card is for the Clean and Simple (CAS) category.
An A2 size panel was cut from X-press It paper using my paper trimmer. The elephant was stamped first then masked. The hippo and hello were stamped next then masked.
With the masks in place, distress inks were blended on with a mini blending tool for the background. Water was splattered then dabbed off with a paper towel to give it some texture. Masks were removed and the critters were coloured with Copic markers.
The stripes along the bottom was created by blending black ink through the Split Diagonal stencil (discontinued). For dimension while maintaining white space, the camouflage diecut technique was used on the word die there.
The panel was adhered to a white top folding card base and clear shimmer was added to the colourful background to finish. Thank you for dropping by. Have a great day!
Hi there. Quickly dropping in again to share a fall coffee themed card.
A rectangle window was die cut in the centre of an A2 size Early Espresso stitched rectangle. The watercolour wash background was created on watercolor paper with Mustard Seed, Rusty Hinge and Barn Door distress inks.
The espresso panel was mounted onto a white top folding card base with foam tape for dimension. To give it some strength, the Coffee Cup Silhouette (thank you Loll for this great die) was die cut twice from white cardstock and stacked. Keeping it really CAS, so no embellishments. And that completes the card. Thank you for visiting.
Hi there. I am quickly dropping in to share a CAS thank you card using one of the newly released sets from Your Next Stamp (YNS) called Autumn Animals. I thought the raccoon holding the apple worked for several challenges.
Stamped the image in black Memento ink on a scrap of X-press It paper, coloured with Copics and then fussy cut out with a slight white border.
A stick frame was die cut from an A2 white panel, and also from black cardstock to be inlaid. Barn Door distress ink was ink blended on the white square with a mini blending tool, then clear shimmer was added before it was inlaid back.
The sentiment was stamped with Versafine black ink. The panel was mounted onto a top folding card base and black Nuvo drops were added to finish. Thank you for visiting. Have a lovely day.
