I know that we still have more than two months of school ahead. But I think it’s time for me to start getting ready. Looks like the end of the school comes unexpectedly for the last 8 years of my school mom carrier :). I have already decided on the gifts and as you see, started making cards.
How I love the Teacher’s Apple stamp set. Such adorable images and many great sentiments!
I started off my card from making a bright background using a piece of Taylored Expressions Rainbow Brights pad. Then I die cut a tag with Neenah Solar white cardstock and Studio Katia Dotted Shaker tag.
Then the image. I stamped a crayon with Versafine Onyx Black ink into a piece of Ranger Watercolor paper, colored it with Zigs – 024, 025, 050, and fuzzy cut.
To finish off my card I adhered the crayon with 3D foam tape and added the sentiment from the same stamp set. Hemptique natural bamboo cord I added at the end.
Hope you enjoy!
To start, I did some simple ink blending on watercolour cardstock using Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Chipped Sapphire. This created a nice sky background. I used a Stitched Rectangle die to cut it out.
I stamped my images onto some ivory cardstock, which I don’t normally do, but I was lazy and it was in front of me. I used my Promarkers for the colouring. I cut each image out and started to create my scene.
Hello everyone!! And welcome to another Monday post! I’m back on the blog today with a card that actually started out as an experiment. I purchased the complete set of Distress Oxide Inks and really wanted to play with them. I have made a couple of backgrounds and loved the results. So for today’s post I’ll show you how they look when used for watercolour.
I started by stamping the beautiful Mandala Flower in Versamark Ink onto some watercolour cardstock and heat embossed it with Detail White Embossing powder from Ranger (my new fave!).
I stamped the image towards to left side of my card panel, as I already had a plan in mind.
The colours I used were: Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Cracked Pistachio, Iced Spruce and Peeled Paint. I swiped a little of each colour onto a non-porous surface. Then the colouring began! I did the same technique as I use when colouring with regular Distress Inks. I load some ink onto my water brush and start where I want the darkest colour to be and work my way out.
Popping up to share another card with cute Studio Katia Hello Alice stamp.
I used few elements from this set and some masking to make a scene.
Firstly I stamped a girl, masked it and stamped paddle and rain drops. Also, I added amazing “Hello Friend” sentiment from the same stamp set. Just love the font combination! There is another sentiment which can be used together with hello.
Coloring on this card was done with Zigs – I used Arches cold press watercolor paper as a base and not quite satisfied with a look I got. The colors are great, but this image is quite small and Arches needs water, what make coloring challenging. Want to try coloring this image on Ranger and then will share with you.
This stamps set has other cute tiny images which could be used alone on the CAS cards and as the elements to build a scene.
Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
Happy Friday everyone, Svetlana here with a floral Birthday Card.
With a help of masking tape I’ve stamped peonies and colored them with copic markers. For the sentiment I used Happy Birthday from the Birthday Lions set.
I’ve added a few embellishments to the card and the card is complete.
Thank You for stopping by and have a great weekend.
Hello friends and Happy Wednesday!
Once again, amazing peony from Studio Katia Together We Bloom set. This time I embossed it in white with Versa Fine and Hero Arts white embossing powder and then watercolored it with Zigs, using pastel 041 light green and 028 pale pink. Despite delicacy and detailing of this stamp, the coloring was very easy and enjoyable. I used Ranger watercolor paper. Looks like it’s my go-to choice among all the varieties of watercolor papers on the market. To make sentiment to stand out I stamped it in Tuxedo Black ink.
Thank you for stopping by!
Hello and Happy Monday!! Laurie here to share a very simple card using mostly die cutting. Studio Katia has amazing dies, from stitched dies to my favourite, the dotted detail dies!
I started by using the largest frame die from the The Darling Ribbon and Dotted Frames Die Set to cut a panel of white cardstock. I then took the middle die from the Elongated Dotted Hexagons to cut a “window” in the centre of this panel. To create a frame for my window, I nested the middle and the largest of those same dies, taped them together and ran them through my die cutting machine with some light grey cardstock.
I traced the opening with pencil onto my cardbase so I knew where to stamp the sentiment. The “thank you” comes from the newly released Thank You So Much Stamp Set. Using my Mini Misti, I lined up the sentiment and stamped in black ink.
Hello friends and Happy Wednesday!
Today I am sharing a card featuring one of my latest flower favorites – Together We Bloom set. Ones again I did foiling to make a die-cut background panel. I used Studio Katia Darling Ribbon and Dotted Frame dies to make a beautiful frame and added stamped sentiment from And the Fox Says in Tuxedo Black ink.
Have a great day!
Popping up to share another card with foiling technique. For this card, I used Together We Bloom Stamp Set and Therm O Web Gold Deco foil.
I embossed flowers onto a white panel with Versa mark ink and added foil with an office laminator. For the dotted edges, I used Studio Katia Darling Ribbon and Dotted Frame die. For the sentiment, I chose SSS die and Ranger gold paper.
Thank you for visiting me today!
Have a great day!
