Happy new year everyone! Hope you all had a fun night celebrating. I wasn’t feeling up to going out to a house party, so opted for a quiet relaxing night at home. Whatever you did last night, I hope you’re feeling better than these bunnies. 😂 They celebrated hard.
The Blah Bunny stamp set is so funny and I’ve been waiting for a chance to use it. On a piece of Neenah cardstock, stamped the Blah Humbunny with Memento black ink. Masked him and stamped the Blah Bunny. Masked again as well as the upper half of the panel, then stamped the NBUS wood floor in Sahara Sand ink. Sponged on Sahara Sand ink to finish the floor.
Removed masks and coloured with Copics. Heat embossed the confetti bits with Liquid Platinum embossing powder. Black heat embossed happy with clear glitter embossing powder and white heat embossed new year on a black strip.
I was going to leave it plain as is, but it looked incomplete, so I added the wine/champagne bottles and hats. The bottles (discontinued) and hats were stamped with Memento black ink on scraps of X-Press It paper, coloured with Copics and fussy cut out. Adhered them to the scene and mounted the panel to a white top folding card base to finish.
Thank you for stopping by. Wishing you a happy, healthy and crafty new year!
Hello there. I have another Christmas card to share today. In honour of National Cocoa Day, I made a cocoa inspired Christmas card. Unfortunately, I don’t have any cocia sentiments, but I will have to rectify that in the new year. 😂
Masked and stamped the images with black Memento ink on Neenah cardstock. Masked the bottom of the panel and blended Tumbled Glass distress ink around the image, and then went back in and ink blended through a Sun Ray stencil.
Removed all masks and coloured with Copics. Next, stamped the steam with VersaMark and heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder. I wanted a subtle effect, but it may be too subtle. Added clear shimmer to the rays then black heat embossed the sentiment.
For some interest, the panel was die cut with a stitchedscallop frame. A second frame was die cut to stack for a bit of dimension. Mounted all pieces onto a white top folding card base and added clear sparkly sequins to finish.
On a top folding Mixed Media card base, black heat embossed the bear, Santa sleigh and sentiment. Masked the bear and die cut a reverse dome mask from copy paper. Blended Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire distress inks for the background. Mixed Perfect Pearls with water and splaltered to create the stars. Repeated with acrylic white paint. Removed masks and coloured the bear image with Zig markers.
Hello everyone. And welcome to a new challenge at Less is More (LIM). We’re back to one layer card week and this time our theme is Stars. We welcome back Bev from Uniko as our guest designer and our sponsor this month.
This birthday card was created for my teamie Sharon who had a birthday this week. Happy birthday Sharon! 🎉🎈🎁 A top folding A2 card base was created from mixed media paper. Distress inks in rainbow colours were blended with a mini blending tool through NBUS Wave of Stars stencil. Perfect Pearls was added to give it some shimmer. The sentiment was black heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder for more sparkle. This was so easy, I decided to make a Christmas card version with white heat embossing on navy cardstock.
I don’t think anything has more stars than a galaxy. And with my NBUS Space Explorer stamp set arriving last week, it was meant to be. 😉 A top folding A2 card base was created from no bleed through Copic friendly cardstock. The astronaut and sentiment were stamped with Intense Black ink and coloured with Copics. Masking, distress inks and mini blending tools were used to create the galaxy strip. It was spritz with water and splattered with white acrylic paint. Nuvo CrystalGlaze was added to the balloons and clear shimmer was added to the galaxy. With the stamp sets still in position in my MISTI, the astronaut and sentiment were stamped with VersaMark and clear heat embossed for added interest.
That does it for me, but my team have made beautiful cards for this challenge and you can see them on the LIM blog. Click on their names to be taken to their personal blogs where they may have even more to inspire you. Hope you will join us this week. Looking forward to seeing your one layer CAS cards following our challenge guidelines. Thank you for stopping by. Happy crafting!
Hello everyone. This is the third year My Favirite Things (MFT) is running their Card Design Superstar contest. This year there are three categories. This card is for the Clean and Simple (CAS) category.
An A2 size panel was cut from X-press It paper using my paper trimmer. The elephant was stamped first then masked. The hippo and hello were stamped next then masked.
With the masks in place, distress inks were blended on with a mini blending tool for the background. Water was splattered then dabbed off with a paper towel to give it some texture. Masks were removed and the critters were coloured with Copic markers.
The stripes along the bottom was created by blending black ink through the Split Diagonal stencil (discontinued). For dimension while maintaining white space, the camouflage diecut technique was used on the word die there.
The panel was adhered to a white top folding card base and clear shimmer was added to the colourful background to finish. Thank you for dropping by. Have a great day!
