Hey everyone! Back today with another sweet little card. I have always loved this stamp set from Lawn Fawn, I have used it over and over again, and still continue to love it.
There is no patterned paper on this card, which has been one of my favorite things it seems lately. Ink and white paper seems to keep very happy, probably considering the abundance of colouring mediums I have in my possession.
Hey everyone! Jess here again using the same stamp and die set as yesterday, the Snow Day set from Lawn Fawn, This card I kept rather simple stamping the tree outline and colouring them in with my Copic’s, G111, G14, G17, and G28, then cut them out with the coordinating die.
I then wrapped some May Arts twine around the white panel and stamped my sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black Ink, and attached my trees with foam tape. Then finished off the twine by tying it in a bow over top.
I dug in my Scraptastic Life Noted card stash and found this fun triangle one and cut it down to fit behind the white panel. Noticing that it looked rather plain on the Neenah Solar white card base I took out my most used and loved stencil (Tim Holtz Spatter stencil) masked off the areas I didn’t want to use and then used distress ink in Peacock Feathers, and picked raspberries through the stencil to create a lovely backround. Attatched my focal panel on some foam tape and it was complete.
Here I went again using some patterned paper, I have some seriously ancient paper pads in my stash. This is an old DCWV paper pad, I have had it for ages, all the patterned paper and the flocked flower stickers came from that paper pad. (I can not remember the name of the pad if you would like to know just leave me a comment and I will find the name of it for you.
I really did love those flocked flowers, and I think they look very classic on this card. I also used red and black cardstock (I believe they are Bazzil Cardshoppe cardstock) just to add to the richness of the card.
The sentiment was embossed with black embossing powder and the stamp it’s self is a CC Designs set called Wedding Labels.
So a while ago I was thinking about how I have been been making so many cards lately, but yet I have used virtually no patterned paper. If you know me at all through twitter, or when I use to do Ustream shows, you would know that I have a ridiculous amount of patterned paper. So I went digging and pulled out some of my old patterned paper, this is a graphic 45 8×8 pad, I can’t remember off hand what collectons I used, but if you really want to know I will dig around and find out for you.
I did a bunch of different layers of paper on here, I used the small banner punch for the banner along the top, the lace punch along the bottom is a Martha Stewart punch.
Making this card, reminded me why I love patterned paper, the simplicity of using nothing but patterned paper and a simple Happy Birthday stamp set. I guess that means I need to keep making more cards and try and get through some of the paper I have, that should only take me 5-10 years haha!
Hey everyone, back with another card! This time it is from the Simon Says Stamp September Card kit. I really loved the stamp set that came with this kit, all the individual book stamps, as well as other elements, and the shelves themselves.
I used various ink colours, some from Simon Says stamp, Hero Arts Shadow Ink, and the Prima chalk inks. (sorry I did not keep track of what colours)
Its a very simple looking card, that has a ton of stamping in it.
Here is a fun quick and simple card I made this afternoon, using come Faber-Castell Gelato’s and some Pink Paisley Die cuts and vellum.
A close up of the center of the card, I love this little trick, left over die cuts that are white on the back, you love the shape but not the pattern anymore, flip them over, use the white side, and love them again!
I started with a piece of Ranger Watercolour paper cut to 4×5 1/4, and use Distress Ink in the colours, Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, and Squeezed Lemonade. I put the inkpads on a ranger craft sheet and sprayed with water, after drying the first layer of colour, I tapped the piece back in the water to add some further layers, increasing the watercolour effect.
Then on a white panned I stamped the Thank you sentiment from the Avery Elle set, the for everything is from a SSS set called Life is a Journey.
I then made a bow on the front of the card using May Arts Turquoise Twill Stripes ribbon. Added a few enamel dots from my stash in similar colours, put it all on a white card base and the card was complete! Quick and simple.
I then took a piece of vellum from my stash (it is provocraft vellum but Bazzil would work wonderfully), Heat embossed a happy birthday sentiment and a boarder from some stamp sets from my stash (I can’t remember which ones as I forgot to write them down, I appologize.) Cut a flag into the one side and glued it on, I then used white Scrappers Spool thread and wrapped it around a few times tying a bow. The sequins are from Neat and Tangled
