Hi again. I wasn’t planning to post again today, but I decided to salvage the card I was working on yesterday for CAS(E) this Sketch #226. I smeared ink right at the end, was frustrated, so I walked away. 😂 Having fresh eyes today really helped to figure something out. 😉 Here’s the sketch.
And here’s my card.
All stamping was done with Memento black ink on a white X-Press It Wonky Stitched Rectangle. The monkey was stamped first, masked, then the branchwas stamped next. They were coloured in with Copics.
Masking, a mini ink blending tool and Salty Ocean distress ink were used to create the sky area. It looked too plain, so I went back with a DIY diecut cloud border stencil to add some subtle clouds.
I wanted to stamp “hang in there” for the sentiment, but I couldn’t remember which set it was from, so I stamped what’s up? instead. A few clear sequins finished off the card. Thank you for visiting Have a great day!
Hi everyone. I have another CAS spring card to share today. We’ve had a lot of rain lately, which makes me a little nervous for April with the phrase April showers and all. 😂 Rainbows in the spring inspired this card.
Next the wreath frame was die cut from white cardstock. The sentiment was heat embossed with black Versafine ink and clear embossing powder.
A black strip was added to anchor the moose. The stitched panel was adhered to a landscape white top folding cardbase. The moose was mounted with foam adhesive and clear Wink of Stella was added to the flower to finish,
Hi there. I have a sweet little card to share and I ain’t lion. 😂 Ok, ok, I hear the groaning and grumbling, but I had to do it. 😂 And now onto my card.
Stamped the lion with Intense Black ink and coloured with Copics. Masked him and the ground area, then blended Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio distress inks for the background. Next die cut with a Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle. To add dimension and still keep it CAS, used the matching die to die cut him along with three more from scraps to stack them.
Adhered the stitched panel to a white top folding card base, stamped big with Deep Iris ink, then inlaid the stacked diecut lion back. Next die cut hugs from white cardstock and white fun foam to stack them for dimension again. Ombré blended Wilted Violet distress ink with a mini blending tool.
A white gel pen was used to give the heart highlights. To finish, added clear shimmer to the heart and hugs sentiment and a few Crystal clear sequins.
Hi there. Just dropping in quickly to share a CAS birthday card.
I stamped the Buddy image on a white A2 X-Press It piece of paper with Memento black ink and coloured with Copic markers. For some shimmer, I added clear glitter to the bow/ribbon on the present with my new Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen.
Next I masked off the image and lightly sponged some Real Red ink for the background. I removed majority of the ink off on a scrap piece of paper before applying to get a soft look. The A2 piece was then die cut out with a Wonky Stitched Rectangle. I lightly sponged the edge as well.
The sentiment was white heat embossed on a black fishtail banner. The stitched piece was mounted to a white top folding card base and a few sparkling clear sequins were added to finish.
Hi everyone. I’m back today with a second punny CAS turtle Valentine’s/love card. Once you see the sentiment, you’ll know where my inspiration came from. 😂 I had so much fun with my turtle Valentine’s card yesterday that I decided to break out another NBUS set with a turtle. And here’s my card.
On a white A2 size piece of X-press It paper, I stamped the turtles with Memento black ink and coloured with YG01, YG03, YG17, G99 Copic markers. I then masked them and blended Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch distress inks for a watery background. For texture I spritz with water, then dabbed with a paper towel to lift some colour.
With some creative masking and my MISTI, I customized the eturtle sentiment and white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock. I cut around the right flipper of the right turtle to tuck the sentiment strip under.
Next I die cut the piece with a Stitch Rectangle before adhering it on a white top folding card base. To finish, I added clear Wink of Stella to the heart-shaped shells and added a few clear droplets because I thought they kinda look like bubbles.
