Noel Tweetings

Hi everyone.  I can’t believe it’s December 1st already!  The crazy busy season has started. So I’m just sneaking in a CAS Christmas card.

 

 

Stamped the bird image with Memento black ink on a scrap of X-Press It paper.  Coloured it with Copics then die cut out with the matching die.

 

 

Die cut the branch (retired Memory Box – thanks Nancy 😉) from brown cardstock.  Die cut Noel twice from white scraps.  Ombré coloured Noel with Copics and added clear glitter.

 

 

Adhered all the pieces onto a white stitched rectangle from my stash.  Placed a snow stencil over the whole panel and applied white embossing paste.  Once the paste dried, mounted the panel with foam adhesives onto a white top folding card base to finish.

Thank you for stopping by.  Happy holidays!

Pink Polar Hello

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 Alphabet were 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.

Thank Ink you for stopping by.  Have a great 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.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Summer Pastel Rainbow

Hi there.  I’m back again to share a summer CAS card created with only dies.  Images in sunglasses is not a new concept, and after FaceTiming with my 5-year old niece who was wearing her funky kids sunglasses yesterday, I created this.

 

 

The sunglasses was die cut off the edge of a white A2 piece of cardstock.  Then both the sentiment and sunglasses were die cut from black and white cardstock to be stacked.  Colouring was done with Copics.

 

 

The stacked glass frame was inlaid into the panel followed by the pastel rainbow coloured lens.  The overhang part was trimmed off.

 

 

Updated to Add: After I posted, I looked a it again and decided to change the sentiment to plain white.  I think it makes it even more CAS and the rainbow sunglasses stand out even more. 😉  Don’t you think?  Oh, there is clear shimmer on it too.

 

 

 

The sentiment was adhered, then clear shimmer and glossy accents were added. A few clear droplets finished off the card.  Thank you for visiting.  Have a great weekend!
