Tonight I’m sharing a tag I made to enter in the Tag You’re It #72 Challenge as well as Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes.
I had fun playing with a few new goodies. The frame is one of my favourite Spellbinders Nestabilities – Fleur de Lis Rectangles as well as Poppy Stamps Clara Corner (cut and embossed). The background used Brusho aquamarine and was sprayed with some Perfect Pearls water. The sentiment die is a new one from a local shop sold under their name.
Thanks for stopping bye.
I’m back tonight with a cute little card for My Favourite Things MFTWSC338 Challenge as well as Happy Little Stampers – Anything Goes with Dies Challenge and Seize the Birthday – Anything Goes Challenge.
I used MFT Blueprints 26 to cut the card front with a MFT Winter Wreath cut in the top. I cut 4 layers of the wreath so I could build up the frame and water coloured them using Distress Inks.
Next, I used Brusho watercolour smooching to make a blue/ green background piece and added a couple of leaves from MFT Leafy Greenery dies. The little foxes and butterflies (MFT Sweet Forest Friends) are coloured with Copics and fussy cut and placed behind the wreath. The sentiment is from the same set.
Of course, I just had to add a little Wink of Stella to the leaves and wreath to finish.
I have recently bought some Brusho Crystal Colours and have been having fun playing. The piece used on this card uses Leaf Green and Turquoise. I love the way it turned out, so I decided it would be perfect to use for the June Freshly Made Sketches 293 Challenge.
I added some stars using the Simon Says Stamps – Stacked Stars Die and the Celebrate die from Couture Creations. After adding the stars I gave the piece a light mist with some Perfect Pearls mixed in water and added Wink of Stella to the stars and celebrate die cuts. Unfortunately, the glitter doesn’t show up so well in the photo. It is much prettier in real life. I think this little close up shows the glitter better.
The piece was also run through the Cuttlebug so the die cuts embedded into the background.
I’m also entering it in the Happy Little Stampers Watercolour and Mixed Media – Glitter – Challenges – for June 2017, as well as the Cardz 4 Guys Challenge Blog – #172 Stars.
Here is a card I decided to enter in the Curtain Call Card Challenge and also in the ‘I love Allsorts Challenges – Flower Power.
I love the bright pink colours but unfortunately the light doesn’t it show off properly.
Hero Arts Poppy Background was black heat embossed and coloured in Copic markers.
It is mounted in a Pierced Rectangle Die by MFT and then added on a black die cut using the Altnew Shutter Cover Die.
Bye for now
I think this birthday card is rather special and eye-catching in real life. I played around with this different way of colouring a flower image when a friend asked for a card for her sister’s Golden Wedding Anniversary last year. I used Altnew’s Majestic Blooms (large flowers) and Peony Bouquet (the bud ). They were stamped in black ink, with some light watercolour shading, first in Memento London Fog, followed over the top by more highlighting using Delicata Golden Glitz ink. Both inks work well with water after smooching some ink on an acrylic block. The sentiment is a stamp from My Favourite Things – Die-namics – Polka Dot Greetings.
The gold band along the side is also made using Delicata Golden Glitz swiped over white card.
I am entering it in Scrapbook Boutique’s June Challenge – Gold is the new Black, Seize the Birthday – Anything Goes Challenge and Addicted to Stamps and More- Make Your Mark.
See you next time
I’m here to share a birthday card I made recently for a friend who loves cats.
It features Penny Black Slapstick/Cling stamp ‘the lookout’ which I coloured using Copic markers. I then fussy cut the image and mounted in on a brick work embossing folder.
Luckily, it just happens to fit the Inspired by All the Little Things #61 Challenge, the Penny Black and More – June Challenge – Anything Goes and Wednesday’s Creative Inspiration Challenge #277 – Our Furry / Feather Friends.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
Tonight I have a card for My Favourite Things Challenges.
I used the dies Die-namics Jumbo Fishtail Banner Stax and ‘Hello’ from Happy Greetings. The cute little branch, birds and butterfly are from the MFT ‘I’m Tweet On You’ Set which I coloured using my Copic markers.
I will also enter it in the Paper Players Clean – and – Simple: Feathered Friends Challenge and Happy Little Stampers – Anything goes with Dies Challenge.
