Sending You Buckets of Love

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a  card for the Casology Challenge this week.

Week 171 - Vehicle

The Cue Word this week is vehicle. Here is my card —

I am not really into clean and simple cards – honestly I don’t know my style yet but I like trying different ones and just being quite diverse. I definitely know that I am a modern card maker. I don’t fancy the vintage look that much.

With this card, the started with smooth white card stock from Simon Says Stamp. I masked the sky and grassy hills and colored it in with distress inks. I used Broken China for the sky and Mowed Lawn for the grassy hill. For the vehicle image, I used the Hero Arts Father’s Day set (I think it’s discontinued). There was a truck image with a heart and I loved it. I stamped additional hearts from Lawn Fawn’s Milo’s ABC to have some hearts falling of the truck. I colored the images with a combination of Copic and Spectrum Noir  markers. For the sentiment, I used a stamp from Simon Says Stamp in Versafine onyx black ink. I cut the entire panel from the My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle Stax and adhered that panel on to another white card base.

That’s it for this card. I will update this post later with the supply list.

Thanks for reading.

 

 

SMILE – It’s Your Birthday

Hi everyone. I’m back with a new card for you today – well not really a new card. I made this card a few months ago and life happened before I was able to post this. So here I am today sharing this card.

Here is the card —

Smile Its Your Birthday

I started this card with a card base from Core’dinations. I cut the largest rectangle from the MFT Stitched Rectangle Stax from Neenah Solar White card stock. I created a circle template and colored it in using different colors of Tim Holtz Distress inks to create a rainbow ink blended effect.

For the sentiment, I cut the smile die cut from Little Yellow Bicycle from Bazzil Black Licorice card stock. To make it look like an embellishment, I added some Wink of Stella to the entire word and then finished it off with Glossy Accents. After it dried, it looked like an enamel accent which I really liked. I will definitely do that more often. For the second sentiment, I spelled out the words using Lawn Fawn’s Milo’s ABC and embossed it with white embossing powder on black card stock.

To finish the card, I added some black enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye to give it a finished look.

That’s it for this card.

I really feel productive and hopefully this continues until next year. Four months in a craft funk is no joke. I’m pretty excited to be creating again – stress free.

Happy Birthday! (Lawn Fawn Critters)

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a birthday card I made using Lawn Fawn stamps.

Here is my card –

Happy Birthday Critters

(I’m sorry for the picture quality but it was quite dark and gloomy when I took this picture and I had to do a lot of editing to make this picture bright.)

I started this card with a 4 bar Neenah Solar White card base. I attached the piece of patterned paper with the same size as the card base from the Lawn Fawn Daphne’s Closet paper collection. For the front panel, I stamped various critters from different Lawn Fawn Stamps. I used the masking technique to make the critters look like they are behind and/or in front of each other. When I finished stamping, I colored the images with Copic markers. For the sentiment, I stamped the birthday sentiment from Year 1 using Versafine Onyx black ink and clear embossing powder.

I centered the biggest stitched rectangle die from My Favorite Things on the image to create the stitched panel. To finish the card, I adhered the panel to base with foam tape and highlighted the party hats with the Zig Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush.

This card is an entry for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. The theme for this week is Anything Goes.

You Are My Sunshine

This is my second post for the day. To check out my first post, click here

My second card for the day is also for the CASology Challenge. I am using the same CUE CARD which is MUSIC. This was the first card I made, so I decided to share and enter it as well.

Week 146 - Music

Here is my card —

You Are My Sunshine

I started this card with some Neenah Solar white card stock and I die cut the largest stitched rectangle from My Favorite Things. I stamped the sentiment using Lawn Fawn’s Milo’s ABC and Simon Says Stamp Color and Sunshine using Versafine Onyx Black ink and Hero Arts shadow ink in Butter Bar. For the sun, I die cut a sun from the You & Me set from Sizzix with a paper from the Doodlebug Lemonade Stand 6×6 paper pack.

I adhered the panel on a piece of Simon Says Stamp Sunshine cards stock that is a standard size top folding card. To finish the card, I used some Pretty Pink Posh sequins. I also covered the sun with some clear Wink of Stella pen and covered with with Glossy Accents.

That’s it for this card. For a complete list of the all the products and tools I used, check out the supply list below.

DO RE MI-ssing You

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for the CAS-ology Challenge. The CUE CARD for this week is MUSIC.

Week 146 - Music

I was trying to think of a way to interpret music and I had a “You Are My Sunshine” card at back of my head. But I definitely wanted to try and think outside the box. Then an idea hit me, and I think this could be one of my favorite card I’ve made. The card came out exactly how I imagined it which is rare for me. It may not be clean and simple with a lot of white space, but i think grey is pretty close. 🙂

Here is my card —

DO RE MIssing You

I die cut the letters / words DO, RE, MISSING, and YOU from different colors using the My Favorite Things Bright Lights Alphabet. I wanted to create a pun on words so I created a space between MI and ssing. For an accent image, I didn’t have any large music note stamp or die cut, so I found a clip art online and cut it. I emembellishedhe note with some Clear Wink of Stella pen and then layered with Glossy Accents.

For the card base, I used a standard size top folding card in Simon Says Stamp Smoke card stock. I stamped the music notes stamp from the Teeny Tiny Backdrops from Lawn Fawn is Hero Arts Soft Granite ink.

That’s it for this card.

New Job? Yay

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card I made for a friend who landed a new job recently. I wasn’t sure how I was going to make this card since I really didn’t have any job related stamps. As I was looking through my stamps, the To Thine Own Shelf stamp from Simon Says Stamp really stood out with some images I could use. So I started with that and the idea just went in different directions from there. I also used other stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp and Lawn Fawn.

Here is my card —

New Job Yay

I started this card with a standard card base with the fold on top from some Simon Says Stamp 120 lb white card stock. I stamped the images related to a workplace from the To Thine Own Shelf set and and I also stamped some sentiments from there and from other SSS sets. For the word “new job”, I didn’t have any so I used Lawn Fawn’s Milo’s ABC which is my favorite alphabet stamp ever. I stamped all images ans sentiments with a variety of ink colors.

I wanted the card to be one layer but I later decided to put a strip of patterned paper from Simple Stories on the side.

That’s it for this card.

I Only Have Eyes For You

Hi everyone!

Today I’m sharing a card for the Create A Smile March Guest Designer Call.

Guest Designer Call

The guest call will run until February 13 so if you’re interested, go and check it out here.

For this card, I decided to use one of the freebies they have on their website. Here is my card —

IMG_5084

Recently I have been enjoying using digital stamps. I used a Newton’s Nook freebie and I purchased some from Gerda Steiner and now I’m using another freebie from Create A Smile. I will always love clear stamps and I will never stop using them, but digi’s are pretty cool to use once in a while.

I started this card with a panel of Neenah Solar White card stock that measures 5 x 3 3/4 inches. I wanted to color some embossing paste so I used Audrey Blue and Doll Pink from Simon Says Stamp to color some white embossing paste from Wendy Vecchi. I used a chevron stencil from Heidi Swapp and did alternate colors of the paste.

For the focal panel, I cut the image from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling card but I wanted the top to have a straight edge but still keep the stitched detail – so I used the straight border die from the Stitched Borders 2 from Pretty Pink Posh to cut the top part.

I colored the bird with some Copic markers. I will mention the colors in the supply list below. For the sentiment, I was struck with the bird’s big eyes so I wanted to use a puny sentiment related to that. I stamped the sentiment from the Only Have Eyes for you set from Simon Says Stamp with Versafine Onyx black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.

To finish the card, I adhered the stitched panel to the chevron piece and I adhered the chevron panel to a standard size card from Neenah Solar White. I also added  Glossy Accents to the eyes of the bird and his stomach. I used enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye to tie in all the colors together.

That’s it for this card.
