Wednesday Card Day – Just Arrived

Wednesday Card Day Intro

Hi everyone! I was recently at Michael’s and they had a huge sale on their older stamps and when I saw two baby themed sets from Fiskars and Stampendous, I couldn’t resist. So I decided to use them for today’s cards. Here is my first card —

Just Arrived Girl

I started this card with some Bazzill card stock in Cotton Candy cut to a standard size card. I used some of the mini images from both sets to create my own background. I repeatedly stamped the images in Versamark and then heat embossed it with some Martha Stewart clear embossing powder. I originally wanted to use sparkle embossing powder but I did not like way it looked so I changed my mind and used clear instead.

For the front panel, I cut the third biggest die from the Sizzix Fancy Labels #3 die set from white card stock. I positioned the stork and sentiment from the Fiskars set and stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored in the image with an assortment of marker brands – I used the Fine Touch markers from Hobby Lobby and a few Bic Mark It markers. I don’t really know how to blend alcohol markers so I normally just do fast coloring and try to blend based on what I think looks right.

To finish the card, the attached the front panel with foam squares and applied some glitter to the baby blanket with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.

I also made a blue version for a baby boy —

Just Arived Boy

For this card, I did the exact same thing as I did with the pink card except that the card stock I used was Robin’s Egg Blue from Bazzill.

Wednesday Card Day – You Are Missed

Hi everyone!

Today’s post  is a resurrection of some sort. I started the Wednesday Card Day feature on my blog on October 2012. It was a way for me to share a card every Wednesday but after 3 posts, WCD just never happened again. I was busy and many things had to take top priority. When I again started blogging about my cards, they became random posts that just were posted any day. You can check out my previous Wednesday Card Day posts here, here and here.

I have decided to start Wednesday Card Day again and this time I’ve added a twist. I’ve been wanting to try and start making process videos for YouTube, so WCD posts will contain a video every single time. I am going to try my best to really keep up and post every Wednesday.

Wednesday Card Day Intro

So here is my card  –

You Are Missed

I started this card with some Neenah Dessert Storm card stock cut to a standard size landscape card. For the front panels, I used the watercolor effect papers from Basic Grey’s Fresh Cuts collection. I cut each paper into 3 3/4 x 1 1/2 strips of paper. I placed them side by side and stamped some of the flowers and the leaf from the Thinking of You stamp set from Simon Says Stamp usingVersaMark ink. Then I heat embossed the strips with white embossing powder from Martha Stewart. I then arranged the strips in the same order on the card base.

For the sentiment, I cut a 1 1/2 inch strip of vellum and stamped the sentiment You Are Missed from the same SSS stamp set. To finish the card I adhered the strip with glue dots towards the bottom.
