Hello there! I’ve been struggling with the heat lately, so I wasn’t sure if I was going to get my card done, but I did! It was created from all NBUS (Never Before Used Stuff)!
The locket / key were die cut four times from scraps of silver foil paper, then stacked. The envelope was die cut from a scrap of regular white cardstock. The postage panel was die cut from a scrap of watercolor paper.
Used the splash watercolouringtechniqueand Distress Oxide inks (Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch) to give it colour and texture. Black heat embossed the sentiment with Versafine black ink and clear embossing powder. Really love this smart sentiment!
Popped the postage panel up with foam tape onto a white top folding card base, then added the envelope/locket/key to finish.
Hello there. Today I am sharing a card that I made for a friend who’s been having a rough time lately. Unfortunately, she hasn’t received this yet, and when she does, I hope it will brighten her day a little. And I’m proud to report that I made it with all NBUS (Never Before Used Stuff)! I couldn’t believe it – FOUR off my massive NBUS list!!! Thanks, Darnell, for running this great challenge. And here’s my card.
I wanted to make a pink hello card with the NBUS Polar Bear Pals stamp set that I just got a week ago. To start, a white A2 piece of cardstock was dry embossed with NBUS Softly Falling embossing folder. The bears were stamped on scraps of X-press It paper with Memento black ink, coloured wth RV and C gray Copic markers then fussy cut out. Friend from NBUS Thoughtful Messages (a gift from sweet Loll) was white heat embossed on a scrap of black cardstock. I wanted the left bear to hold it, so I cut around his arm and tucked it under.
The letters from NBUS Bold Alphabetwere die cut from more scraps of X-press it paper and also from black cardstock to be stacked. The white diecut letters were coloured with the same RV Copic markers as the scarves.
The embossed panel was mounted onto a white landscape top folding cardbase before the card was assembled. The bears were mounted with foam adhesive for dimension and clear shimmer was added for some sparkle to finish.
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.
Hello there. I received my order from Simon Says Stamps yesterday and knew I had to ink up one of their stamp sets right away. I also wanted to try something a little different for today’s simple friendship card.
It was coloured with white and black pencils. First time colouring on colour cardstock other than Kraft and it’s kinda cool. I may have to try this more often. For some sparkle, clear shimmer was added to the petals and buds. It’s hard to tell, but it is really sparkly against the black IRL.
I didn’t have a nice yellow colour cardstock, so the friend sentiment was die cut from a scrap of X-Press It paper and coloured with Y06 Copic marker. Ok, so my Copics didn’t truly get a break after all, 😂 For dimension, friend was die cut from black cardstock three more times. The panel was adhered to a white top folding card base and some Clear Rain Drops finished off the card.
Hugs was die cut 4x from white cardstock to be stacked for dimension. It was Ombré coloured with Wilted Violet distress ink and a mini blending tool. Squeezed Lemonade distress ink was used to shade the background.
Glossy accents on the toucan’s beak, clear glitter on the hugs diecut and a few glitter gumdrops were added to finish. Thank you for visiting. Have a great day!
