Tweet Birthday

Happy Sunday everyone!  And Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there.  No Mother’s Day card and no winner to announce for my giveaway last week since no one entered. 😜   So today, I have another birthday card to share.

Black Memento ink was used to stamp all images so they can be coloured with Copics.  Five of the six birds were stamped on X-press It paper then die cut out with the coordinating dies.  The rest of the scene was created using the masking technique on a white Stitched Rectangle piece of Copic friendly cardstock.  The string holding the birdhouse was drawn with a ruler and Copic multi-liner.

The cloud background was created with a DIY cloud border stencil, mini blending tool and Salty Ocean distress ink.  Tweet was stamped twice for a shadow effect, while birthday wishes was stamped as normal.

 

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and thank you for stopping by.

Make A Wish

Hi there.  No spring card today.  I’m sharing a masculine birthday card instead.  I was also able to check off a stamp set and a die from my continually growing NBUS list.  😉

The NBUS images were stamped with Intense Black ink on X-press It paper and coloured with Copics.  The images and the upper portion were masked off and Pacific Point dye ink was blended through a Large Grid stencil with a Clarity brush.

The NBUS Wish was die cut from black cardstock.  To make it stand out, it was mounted onto a scrap of white cardstock and fussy cut to give it a white border.  The other part of the sentiment was white heat embossed on a black strip.

The paper was trimmed to 5.5″x 3.75″, mounted onto an A2 Pacific Point cardstock piece and then die cut with a Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle for a continuous look.  A white gel pen was used to add dot details to the dragon.  The sentiments were adhered and glossy accents was added to the Wish diecut to finish.

Okay, since I am playing in Darnell’s challenge, I have to report my teeny little boo-boo as indicated by the oval in the photo below.

Initially, I masked the area on a slant thinking it would look neat, but it looked funny.  So to save all the work I’ve done so far, I re-masked the area going straight across and covered as best I could with the large Wish diecut.  And I think it worked!  😂

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.

First Father’s Day

Hi there,

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. 😊

Father's Day card created for Trev playing with STAMPlorations Theme & Sketch Challenge, 613 Avenue Create Your Own Challenge and MarkerPop Bi-Weekly Challenge #97 Father's Day.

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.
