Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card using a couple of sketches from 2 different challenges. I know it’s ironic that I decided to combine two sketch challenges because realistically it would just be a mess. But both sketches I used are very similar.

This card is an entry for the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge. This is the sketch —

CTS_105

 

And this is sketch for the My Favorite Things sketch challenge.

So when you look at both sketches, they are very similar. A frame/panel, a focal point on the left and the sentiment next to it. The only difference is the orientation. So I may be crazy but I decided to incorporate both sketches and make it my own.

Here is my card —

Happy Birthday Doggie

 

I started this card with some Carnation layering paper from Hero Arts cut to a landscape card with the fold on top. I used the star backdrop from Lawn Fawn’s Teeny Tiny Backdrops. I wanted to stamp the background and have a tone on tone effect, so I used Cotton Candy ink from Simon Says Stamp. For the frame, I used the two biggest rectangles from the My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle dies. I cut a frame from some gold paper from the Glitzy Glitter paper pack from Die Cuts With A View.

For the focal image, I stamped the dog from the Cupcake Cutie set from My Favorite Things and colored it in with Copic markers. I will have all the colors in the supply list below. I cut the image with a circle punch and I cut another balloon and adhered it with foam adhesive. I also added some clear Wink of Stella to the balloon and the ribbon on the dog. Then I added Glossy Accents to the balloon. For the sentiment, I stamped the birthday greeting from the same Cupcake Cutie set on a strip of Carnation layering paper with Versamark and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.

To finish the card, I placed some gold and pink enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye.

That’s it for this card. For a complete list of the supplies I used, please check the supply list below.

Thank for reading! See you soon.

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for a friend of mine who loves ice cream. She is celebrating her birthday soon and I thought it was a great idea to give her an ice cream card.

Here is my card —

I Scream You ScreaM

 

I started this card with a standard size card with the fold on top from Neenah Solar White card stock. I selected a rainbow paper from Bo Bunny’s Lemonade Stand 6×6 paper pack and adhered it flush on to the base covering the entire front panel.

I used the left over rainbow paper and stamped scoops of ice cream from the Ice Dream stamp set on the different colors of the paper and fussy cut each one. I also stamped the cone and colored it in with Copic Markers. I arranged the scoops in rainbow order and stuck them to each other to look like they were stacked. I attached the entire ice cream cone on a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock cut with a flag banner. For the sentiment, I stamped the “I Scream” message from the same Ice Dream set in Memento Luxe Love Letter ink. For a glossy finish, I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder (my current favorite technique).

To finish the card,  I attached the flag banner on the card base. I also added some DIY enamel dots I made from perler beads.

That’s it for this card. For a list of all the products and tools I used, please refer to the supply list below.

Happy Birthday Foxy!

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for a couple of challenges that I am combining. I will have the names and pictures of the challenges at the end of the post.

The specifics of the challenges are – using a fox image, using patterned paper, and using critters. I tried joining those 3 requirements on my card.

Here is my card —

Happy Birthday Foxy

I started this card with some Neenah Solar White card stock cut to a standard size card with the fold on top. I used the woodgrain paper from Lawn Fawn’s Into the Woods 6×6 paper pad to cover the entire front of the card. For the focal point, I created a shaker panel using more papers from the Into the Woods 6×6 paper pad and the Into the Woods sequin mix. I used a double layer of foam  tape to raise the image. For the circle panel and scallop borders, I used the Sizzix Framelits nesting dies.

I used the fox from Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Forest stamped on Simon Says Stamp 120lb card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored it ion with Copic markers (Thank god for the upcoming Online Card Class — I need all the help I can get). I cut the image out and attached it to the shaker panel with foam squares. For added interest, I covered the fox with some Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.

For the sentiment, I used the ‘Happy Birthday” semtiment from Lawn Fawn’s Hats Off To You set combined with Milo’s ABC to create a custom sentiment to match the fox.

That’s it for this card.

I am entering this card for the following challenges —

1. Moxie Fab World Foxy Foxes Challenge

2. Virginia’s View Challenge  – using patterned paper

Miss U

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for MFT Get Sketchy challenge.

Here is my card —

Miss U

I started this card with Neenah Solar White card stock cut to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 standard size card with the fold on top. I followed using the strips of paper from the sketch, I cut 3 strips of paper from Pink Paislee’s Pen Pal collection. The two outer strips measures 1/4 inch and the center strip measures 1/2 inch.

For the sentiment, instead of using a raised circle image, I just made it the focal point to act as the circle part from the sketch. Using Simon Says Stamp Thinking Of You set, I masked the “ed” from the word missed. I stamped it in Memento Luxe pigment ink in Love Letter and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. For the “U”, I die cut the letter die cut from the Bright Lights Alpha from My Favorite Things using some Bazzill Blueberry Sour card stock. I adhered the “U” close to the miss to form the Miss U sentiment. To finish the card, I embellished with assorted sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

That’s it for this card.
