Hello again! It’s nice to have a bit more energy the last few days to craft. This is why it’s my third day in a row that I’m posting! Today I have two cards to share. STAMPlorations is celebrating 5 years this month and their challenge is to CASE their STAMPgirls. There are so many inspiring projects by the talented STAMPgirls. I just chose what jumped out at me and what I have in my supplies. 😉 These cards were super easy and quick.
On a stitched rectangle die cut from Neenah cardstock, stamped the gifts with Memento black ink and coloured with Copics. Black heat embossed the sentiment, then adhered the panel to a white landscape top folding card base. Added a few clear sequins to finish.
Next up is this masculine card from Linda. I’ve had a couple of NBUS stamp sets from Jane’s Doodles that screamed to be inked up. And here’s my card.
On Neenah cardstock and with Memento black ink again, stamped the stack of books, masked it then stamped the cup. Coloured with Copics and then added some brown splatters. Black heat embossed the sentiment and clear heat embossed the steam. Die cut out with a stitched rectangle die and mounted it with foam tape for dimension to a white top folding card base to finish.
Two easy-peasy cards. Thank you for your time. Have a great day!
Hello there! I’m back with a rare type of card to share today. Late last night my husband asked if I had a retirement card… he needed one for a colleagues who retired today! Nothing like getting plenty of advance notice! 😂 So I woke up this morning to get started, but I could not for the life of me remember which set had the ‘happy retirement’ sentiment. I found a slightly different retirement sentiment and ended with this.
Started by stamping thecocktail with Memento black ink on X-press It paper. Masked it and the bottom part, then blended Squeezed Lemonade and Carved Pumpkin DOx inks with a mini blending tool. Removed masks and coloured in the image with Copics. Die cut ‘enjoy’ once from a scrap of X-press It paper and four more times from a scrap of regular thick white cardstock. Ombré coloured the X-press It diecut with red Copic markers, then stacked all five pieces for dimension.
In my haste to get this done within the timeframe, I smeared ink on the panel. No time to start over, so I die cut a frame from X-press It paper with an A2 size stitched rectangle die (retired) and a duo sided stitched rectangle die. Adhered the panel to a white top folding card base and popped the frame up with foam tape to give it dimension. Heat embossed ‘your retirement’ with white embossing powder on a black strip. To finish, added clear shimmer to the umbrella and ‘enjoy’ diecut, Crystal Glaze to the glass and a few round clear drops.
My husband said his colleague loved it. 😊 Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!
