Good morning and happy Sunday!

Today’s card is created for this week’s CAS Colours and Sketches challenge #295 and also for my entry for their second part of the DT call. This week’s is a sketch challenge. I used Hero Arts, My Monthly August Card Kit and Foam Animals Stamps Set for today’s card.

I stamped the coffee cup and saucer with a Copic friendly ink, Hero Arts, Intense Black on a piece of Neenah White card-stock and colored with Copic Markers (W1, 2 and 4 and E13 and 34). After it completely dried, I stamped the coffee art with VersaMark ink and heat-embossed it with Hero Arts’ white puffy embossing powder. I fussy cut the image out and put it aside.

Today’s card features Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Lacy Poppies Dies. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp’s Fresh Bunch. For this card, I did the Die Cut Inlay technique, die cutting and assembling whatever you cut out back into the background like a puzzle.  Continue reading “Have A Wonderful Day”

Hello Friend

Hello friends and happy Thursday! One more day to go until the weekend is here. I can’t stop playing this Plank Background Stamp Set from Simon Says Stamp. I am so in love with it.

First, I stamped the Plank Background with VersaMark Ink onto a Bristol Smooth card stock panel and heat-embossed it with Ranger Ink’s Princess Gold embossing powder. I colored the background with Zig’s Clean Color Real Brush (Cobalt Blue, Yellow, Fresh Color and Light Green). I let it sit and air-dry for half an hour. After it completely dried, I trimmed down the background to 4.25″ by 5.5″. Continue reading “Hello Friend”

Hello Lovely

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a great start of the week. I can’t believe it’s already October, this year goes by so fast! So over the weekend, I bought some Tonic Studios’ Nuvo Shimmer Powder. It was my first time playing with it and I am loving it!

First, I started wetting the water color cardstock with water. Then, I sprinkled Catherine Wheel and Solar Flare shimmer powder from Tonic Studios onto the wet cardstock to create my background. It’s so fun. All you need to do is spray some water onto the shimmer powder and it will spread out on its own. I repeated the process until the background was all covered. Continue reading “Hello Lovely”

YOU’RE A STAR!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I finally got some time to craft over the weekend, and I made a card using Simon Says Stamp’s Under The Sea Animals and Pebbles Die. I had this stamp and die set for a long time and haven’t had the chance to use it. Here is the card I made with these cute under the sea animals.

First, I started making the background by using Distress Oxide Inks, I used the ink blending tools to blend the Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean onto a piece of A2 sized Neenah Solar White card stock to make the water background. I blended the Tea Dye, Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo to make the sand.   Continue reading “YOU’RE A STAR!”
