Buddy with NBUS Happy

Happy Monday everyone. Today I am sharing a CAS birthday card created for my sweet crafty friend Nancy. Her birthday is today! Unfortunately, I didn’t send it early enough and she did not get this before leaving on her trip… so surprise, Nancy! Hope you’re enjoying your birthday getaway. For her card, I brought back my favourite Buddy image and paired him with a NBUS happy die. Love these triple layer word dies.

 

 

An A2 size stitched rectangle was die cut from X-press It paper. Buddy was stamped with Memento black ink then coloured and shaded with cool gray Copic markers.

 

 

The word happy and first layer were die cut from white cardstock. The happy word diecut was placed back into the negative piece to make it easier to colour it with a mini blending tool and distress inks.

 

 

The bottom happy layer was die cut from black cardstock and another happy word was die cut from white cardstock to be stacked. Birthday was white heat embossed on a scrap of black cardstock. The stitched panel was mounted to a top folding card base before the sentiments were adhered. Clear shimmer on the pastel coloured happy finished the card.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.

Summer Sailing

Hi everyone.  I have a really easy CAS general card to share today.   It was prompted by the new sketch today at CAS(E) this Sketch.

I found a leftover watercolor piece smooshed with Salty Ocean distress ink.  It made me think of creating a summer sailing scene with it, so I smooshed Peacock Feathers on the bottom for the water.  It was dried with a heat tool and then die cut with a stitched rectangle.

The sentiment was black heat embossed with Versafine ink and clear embossing powder.  The sailboat and seagulls were die cut from white cardstock 3x to be stacked for dimension.

I wanted the water to glisten in the light, so I used a clear Spica pen to add sparkle.  And that is it.  Thank you for visiting.  Have a great day!

Birthday Hi

Happy Sunday everyone!  Today I am sharing another super CAS birthday card with Buddy. The stamp set was still sitting out on my desk, and since I still need to make more birthday cards, I made this.

Buddy was stamped in the upper right corner of a white A2 stitched rectangle panel with Intense Black ink and coloured with Copics.  I then masked him and used a DIY cloud stencil and blending tool to crelate the sky background with Tumbled Glass distress ink.

The sentiment was die cut twice from white cardstock to stack them for dimension.  They were Ombré coloured with Copics and highlights were added with a white gel pen.  To make the sentiment the focus and really stand out, I die cut another sentiment from black cardstock and offset them to get a shadow effect.

The panel was adhered to a white top folding card base and glossy accents was added to the balloon and sentiment as a finishing touch.  As you can see, I made two cards but added a stamped sentiment to the other one.

Birthday with Buddy

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.

Buddy & Ducky Returns

Happy Labor Day weekend everyone!  So one of the challenges from my last Buddy & Ducky post was Tic Tac Toe Challenge 17.  I thought I had completed the challenge, but realized this was not the case.  I had chosen the top row across: window card, critters and sequins.  So where was the window?  Exactly.  *lol*  I had missed the window!   So I made a new card and am entering again. I used the same color combo as last time from Color Throwdown and combined them with CAS and birthday challenges for today’s card.

Just like before, I stamped Buddy & Duck with black Memento ink, colored with Copics and fussy cut them out.  This time, I colored Buddy in grays.   I added glossy accents to the balloons again for dimension.

To create my window, I adhered an A2 white stitched rectangle to a top folding white card base, then die cut the window through the card front.  For a finished look I die cut two window frames from white cardstock and attached one to the front and the other to the inside front.  I stamped the presents and sentiment directly onto the card front and colored the gifts with blue Copics.

Before adding Buddy on the inside of the card, I randomly blended some Broken China distress ink to create the sky background.
