Hi crafty people! Just a quick post to share a card I made for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers which is on I for Inks. I used distress oxide in abandoned coral and a paw print stencil to create a patterned circle. The larger circle was made to match by blending the ink around the edge of the die cut circle.
I stamped one of these cats with catitude, coloured with alcohol inks and fussy cut him out. The sentiment I used came from this Taylored Expressions set.
I added the image to the circle panels, stamped the base card and then added some nuvo drops as a finishing touch.
I hope my grumpy cat made you smile! Have a lovely evening.
I coloured Fran using watercolour pencils (although I didn’t blend the hair at all, just built up 3 different colours in hair strands) I fussy cut out the mug and glued it onto the white card version and added one of the three sentiments. I then fussy cut out the whole thing (just as well I love fussy cutting!).
Once I had done this I realised I didn’t have a card base big enough (oops!) so I folded an a 4 card in half and added some patterned papers from my stash. I added a mat across the card to support the cup handle.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog, I hope you will say hi in the comments and hop over to the Aud Sentiments Challenge to see the projects my fellow design team members have made.
Hi crafty people, I hope you are all doing ok during these troubling times. I don’t really want to talk about everything going on but I am trying my best to listen to the black people and learn from their experiences about how I can be a better supporter to help change happen.
Anyway I’m back with my second blog post in a day which is unusal for me, but I have a very good reason! I am delighted to share that for the month of June I am a guest design team member for the Little Paper Tree .
Today over on their blog my first post is up, so you can head over there to see one of my projects. I am here to share another fun card using the stamp set the kindly gifted me which is Stand Tall by Catherine Pooler Designs.
For this card I started by making an inky background using some distress oxides and distress inks. I used one of the stamps in the set to build up some reeds around the water which I think started to add some dimension.
I stamped both of the flamingos in archive black ink and coloured them with picked raspberry distress ink and a waterbrush before fussy cutting them out. I added some ripples to the water with another stamp in the set and popped the flamingos into the scene. I added some layers behind the scene and then glued it onto a card base which I had folded to create an easel card.
Inside the card I stamped the zig zag line using picked raspberry distress oxide. The sentiment was also stamped in this ink before adding some mats and layers and popped up on 3d pads.
I hope you like my card today and that you will check out my guest post at The Little Paper Tree blog today. There will be a few more designs with this set over at my instagram too.
Happy Friday crafty people! I hope you have all had a good week. Today I’m excited to share a project for the Daring Cardmakers Challenge who have invited me to join their design team as a guest for June and July! This challenge takes place every Friday and they have have a range of different types of prompts. I was very honoured to be asked to join them over the summer, thanks ladies!
Today’s challenge is an Elemental Inspiration, you are asked to create a project using three elements from these pictures as inspiration.
I chose the picnic blanket, the mason jar drink and flowers to make this card.
If you are going to enter the challenge, let me know in the comments so I can keep an eye out for your card. Thank you so much for visiting my blog, I will be back with another post later today with another fun project. Take care and stay safe.
