Fall Coffee Colour Wash

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.

 

 

Once the wash background was dry, the beans were stamped with Early Espresso ink and the sentiment was gold heat embossed.

 

 

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.

Thankful Raccoon

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.

 

 

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.

Tickled Pink Birthday

Hi there.  I’m just dropping in quickly to share a CAS birthday card I created today.  I have several coming up. And with AAA Cards challenge #98 Creatures Great and Small, I took the opportunity to use a NBUS summer set I recently bought.  Trying to savour the last bit if summer. 😆

 

 

 

 

 

I guess someone should have told this flamingo not to drink and rollerskate. 😂  The flamingo and sentiment were stamped with Memento black ink on a white stitched rectangle die cut from Neenah cardstock.

 

 

Masking, distress inks, a Radiating Rays stencil and a mini blending tool were used to create this mini boardwalk scene. i have a little confession.  Initially I created a sandy beach scene and then realized you can’t rollerskate on sand!  😂  Wasn’t even thinking.

 

 

The flamingo was coloured with Copics and a few motion lines were drawn in with a Copic multiliner.  The panel was mounted to a white top folding card base with foam tape.  Clear shimmer was added to the rays to finish.

As I mentioned, it’s a quick one. 😂  Thank you for visiting.  Have a great day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hello Power Poppy

Hi there.  Just quickly sneaking in a simple card for a couple of challenges to round off August.  Today’s card is for the Power & Spark August Mix & Match and Addicted to Stamps and More #257 Make Your Mark challenges.  The mix & match challenge was to use two different sets.  I ended up using three NBUS Power Poppy sets.

 

 

And here’s my card.

 

 

The bouquet was stamped with Memento black ink on a stitched X-press It rectangle panel and coloured with Copics.

 

 

The butterflies were stamped on a scrap of X-press It paper, coloured with Copics as well and fussy cut out.  The sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock.

 

 

The stitched panel was attached to a white top folding cardbase.  The sentiment and butterflies were popped up with foam adhesive.  Love sparkles so had to add clear shimmer to the flowers.  A few clear sequins finished off the card.  And that’s all there is to it.  Thank you for visiting. Enjoy your day or night, wherever you are.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Froggie Waving Hello

Happy Fri-yay, everyone.  Just a quick fun CAS card to share today.

 

 

The frog and the sentiment were stamped with Memento black ink on a Zig Zag X-press It rectangle.  The frog was coloured with Copics.

 

 

The frog was then masked with a die cut mask made with the matching die and Post It labelling tape. Love die cut masks because they’re quick and give a white border (as long as they are aligned correctly that is 😉).   With a mini blending tool, More Mustard distress ink was blended around the masked frog, then Spiced Marmalade distress ink was blended through a Radiating Ray stencil.

 

 

The frog and sentiment were heat embossed with clear embossing powder for some shine and dimension.  A few green glitter gumdrops finished off the card.
