Happy Monday! I was coloring the images with Copics from this new NBUS set yesterday when several challenges popped into mind, resulting in this easy summer card.
Took a Bristol stitched rectangle panel from my stash and stamped the penguin and palm tree with Archival black ink. Watercolored the tropical scene with Zig markers and a watercolor brush. Used a Soft Suede SU! marker to add texture to the sand and a white gel pen to add cresting waves in the water.
Die cut ‘enjoy’ from a scrap of Bristol paper twice and once from black. Ombré coloured one of the white pieces with Zigs, then stacked and offset. Mounted the panel to a white top folding card base and added clear shimmer to the die cut sentiment to finish.
And that was it. Thank you for visiting. Enjoy your day!
Hello there. I’m back to share another birthday card for another niece who is turning 10 at the end of the month. I was going to make a shaker, but since I have to mail it, I decided to finally give a window panel card a try.
The otter, mermaid and rocks (from the same sets) were stamped with Memento black ink on scraps of Copic-friendly paper and coloured with Copics. The images from the otter set were die cut out with the matching dies, while the images from the mermaid set were fussy cut since I don’t have the matching dies.
The card base was prepared from Mix Media paper. 2” was cut from the bottom of the front, and cut in half into two 1” pieces. A piece of acetate was then attached to the base front to one of the 1” pieces, re-forming the front. Covered up all but the 1” window with Whisper White cardstock. The bottom 1” area was covered with a waves dry embossed piece from my stash. The sentiment was stamped on the acetate with black StazOn ink.
For the inside through the window opening, an area was masked then distress inks in rainbow colours were ink blended with a mini blending tool. Assembled the card and added clear glitter and white gel pen details to finish my first window panel card!
Happy Sunday everyone. I was tempted to make another rainbow and unicorn card, but instead I gave the unicorn a rest and created a rainbow and dragon card. 😉
The Rainbow Stripes were die cut from watercolor paper and coloured with Distress Oxide ink and a mini blending tool. They were spritz with water and dabbed with a paper towel, then set aside to dry. Once dry, clear shimmer was added to give them some sparkle. It looks really pretty IRL.
The dragon was stamped on a scrap of X-press It paper, coloured with Copics and die cut out with the matching die. The cloud was a leftover diecut piece from my bag of scraps. The sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock.
A stitched rectangle was die cut from Whisper White cardstock and adhered to a white top folding card base before the card was assembled Tumbled Glass distress ink was blended behind the dragon and cloud, which were popped up with foam adhesive for dimension. Several pastel sequins were added to finish.
Thank you for coming by and enjoy the rest of your day!
Today I have a CAS one layer Father’s Day card that I made for a friend who will be celebrating his first Father’s Day with his 7-month old girl. She also happens to be my goddaughter. 😊
I would normally use masculine images to make a masculine card, but since my friend is a dad to a little girl, I used an adorable girl image this time. I did, however, stick to masculine colors to keep it masculine. I stamped the girl and puppy on white cardstock with Memento black ink. I colored them with Copic markers and then die cut them out with the matching dies.
I did some ink blending with distress inks over a grid stencil to create the background. The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder on a strip of black cardstock. I did some omitting of two sentiment stamps to get the greeting to say what I want. DAD was die cut from white cardstock three times and stacked for dimension. I then colored DAD with the same Copic marker colors used to color her dress.
The A2 panel was adhered to a white top folding card base and Happy Father’s Day was stamped in black on the inside to finish.
