Sending You A Latte Thanks

Hi everyone! I’m back with a card today using the emboss/resist technique.

Here is my card —  (I’m still trying to figure out lighting, so please forgive this very dark picture)

I started this card with a panel of Neenah Solar White cardstock and I stamped the Hero Arts Tiny Flags background set using some WOW Clear Embossing powder. After embossing, I cut the paper in half and tried to resist some colors. I used some distress inks in rainbow order.

For the image, the sketch challenge I had an object to the right side of the card, so I used the Coffee Cup die cut from Simon Says Stamp.

I adhered the coffee cup and stamped my sentients from the What’s Brewing set also from Simon Says stamp.

This card is an entry for the following challenges:

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for the Pretty Pink Posh Cutting Edge blog hop hosted by the ever so sweet and awesome – Paulina. I enjoyed the shaker card blog hop and this one this definitely another fun one.

I have been recently enjoying die cuts, and my sister who is my most generous gift giver, has given me quite a few dies over the past few weeks and I was excited to use them. For this card, I used the Spellbinders Inspire – Birds On A Wire die. It’s a very elegant and versatile die.

Here is my card —

Thanks for Thinking of me1

I started this card with a panel of Tim Holtz distress watercolor paper cut to  5 1/4 by 4 inches. Using the Tim Holtz mini distress ink blending tool, I blended in the inks from top to bottom. I started with Fired Brick on top then blended in Spiced Marmalade and at the bottom I used Mustard Seed. To darken the colors a little bit, I went over the entire panel with some Antique Linen distress ink.

For the die cuts, I used the Birds on a Wire from Spellbinders and cut 3 rows of birds from some Bazzill Licorice Twist card stock. I used the Xyron sticker maker to adhere them diagonally on the top of the card leaving some space on the bottom left for my sentiment.

For the sentiment, I used the Thanks set from Simon Says Stamp and stamped it with black pigment ink from ColorBox and then I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I have recently been loving the pigment ink + clear embossing powder combination.

To finish the card, I adhered the front panel to a top folding standard size made some Bazzill Licorice Twist card stock.

I am also entering this card for the current challenge at A Blog Named Hero. The theme for this challenge is Ombre.

Wednesday Card Day – You’re So Special

Wednesday Card Day Intro

 

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card for the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge. The sketch this week is pretty straightforward and looks easy, but once you start making a project you realize that it’s not that easy than it seems. Here is this week’s sketch —

You're So Special

I immediately knew after seeing the sketch that i didn’t want to use patterned paper or washi tape to achieve the horizontal lines. So I decided to use watercolors instead. I used the Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads (please check the supply list for all the colors I used).

I decided to paint horizontal lines toward the right of the card. After painting all the colors, I stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts Truly Appreciated stamp set using Versamark ink. I covered the sentiment with the Recollections Silver Detail embossing powder.

To finish the card, I added some Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

You can watch the video here or on YouTube.

Hi everyone! I’m back with another homework card from the current Online Card Class – Watercolor for Cardmakers. Today’s card is a lesson from Day 3 where we looked into coloring images using watercolor. I was very inspired by Shari’s technique so I decided to try it out.

Here is my card –

Thanks For Being There

For the main circle element, I used the Quatrefoil background stamp from Stampabilities and stamped it on Strathmore Watercolor paper using VersaMark ink. I embossed it using the Hero Arts white embossing powder. I colored the different compartments with the Tim Holtz Distress inks. I swiped some on my craft mat and added a spritz of water and picked up the ink with a paint brush (please check the supply list for the complete list of colors I used). I decided to cut out the piece and make it a circle.

For the sentiment, I used the Simon Says Stamp Thanks set and stamped a sentiment. I stamped the “Thanks” on some Bazzill Candy Hearts card stock cut using the Small Banner Shapes from SSS. Then I stamped the second part of the sentiment on some vellum. I attached the panel to the front of the base.

To finish the card, I added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and Lawn Fawn. (complete color list in the supply list)

That’s it for this card. Thanks for reading. I will be back with more cards from the class.
