Hello there. And Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers and step-fathers out there. To celebrate today, I am sharing a funny CAS Father’s Day card. The idea for my card actually came from a Mother’s Day stamp set with “Thanks to you I turned out awesome” sentiment. 😂 Too funny.
The panda image and sentiment were stamped with black Memento ink on a white A2 rectangle.
Bluprint Sketch distress ink and a mini blending tool were used to Ombré colour the dad diecut sentiment and to shade the background.
Glossy Accents was added to dad for a bit of dimension and as a finishing touch. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great week.
My niece, Jasmine (aka Jas), is turning 12 on Monday. What better way to personalise her birthday card then to add her name using an alphabet die set. The masking technique and Memento black ink were used to stamp the elephant, mouse and balloon on an A2 stitched rectangle. They were masked and pink shading was added with a Clarity brush for the background. The images and die cut letters were coloured with Copics. The sentiment was white heat embossed on a dark grey cardstock strip. And I can’t do without some sparkle, so clear shimmer on the die cut letters, Glossy Accents on the balloon and a few sparkling clearsequins were added to finish.
My nephew, Jas’ brother, is turning 10 on July 1st. I already made him a ninja card, but I needed another card for my mom to give to him. I thought about how we used to write notes/letters which made it personal. So with no alphabet or number stamps that are small enough, i simply wrote in 10th and Lucas with a black Copic Multiliner to personalise his card. The images were stamped with black Menento ink on a 5″ x 3.75″ piece of X-press It paper then coloured in with Copics. To keep it masculine and CAS, but give it some dimension and interest, yippee was dry embossed in the upper portion. No embellishments.
Well, that’s it for me this week, but be sure to check out my team’s personal blogs for more inspirations so you can play along with us. Make sure to keep it CAS and follow the challenge guidelines. Thank you for your visit. Have a great week.
When it comes to one layer cards, I like to give it dimension by masking and shading. However, by using a layering stamp set this time, dimension was automatically achieved simply by stamping the layers. Here the popsicle was stamped with Altenew Green Fields ink set on a top folded white A2 cardbase. The rectangle was traced with a black Copic multiliner and a rounded rectangle die. The sentiment (Father’s Day was from a retired set) was black heat embossed with Versafine black ink and clear embossing powder. To make the sentiment stand out where it overlaps with the popsicle, it was outlined with a white gel pen. Normally I would not use glitter on masculine cards, but clearshimmer on the popsicle works to give it an icy look. A few clear droplets were added to finish.
The elephant and baby boy part of the sentiment were stamped with London Fog Memento ink on a side folded white cardbase. The elephant was coloured with Copics, then masked and Arctic ink was blended for the background. The Sweet part of the sentiment and the stripe border were stamped with Caribbean Sky ink. To finish, Glossy Accents was added to Sweet for some shine and dimension.
Hi everyone. I needed a birthday card for my mom whose birthday is in a couple of days, so I made a CAS floral birthday card. And I finally got up the nerve to try no-line colouring. It was not as daunting as I had thought. I just mailed it off today, so hopefully she will receuve it on time.
On a A2 stitched rectangle X-press It paper, the floral image was stamped in the upper right corner with London Fog Memento ink, then coloured with Copics (RV0000, RV63, RV66, RV69, YG01, YG03, YG17, YG67). The sentiment and mom were black heat embossed with Versafine black ink and clear embossing powder.
For interest and dimension, a stitched rectangle was die cut in the center to create a frame. The frame was popped up with foam adhesive on a white top folding card base and the die cut rectangle was inlaid back.
