Simple trees

DSC_0111

 

 

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.

Star Birthday

stars

 

Hey everyone! Here is a fun card I made inspired by the one Kristina Werner did on Jennifer McQuires blog a while back. I started with a piece of Neenah Desert Storm Paper that I folded into an A2 size card. I then took a Prima Star Stencil, and inked it with white ink, let that dry thoroughly then used Distress ink in, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, and Dusty Concord through the same stencil with it being slightly offset.

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

white card 1

 

So here is the card I made to enter the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge W is for White. My card base is Neenah Desert Storm 80lbs cardstock, then I cut a layer of Neenah Solar White cardstock and  used the Prima Butterfly stencil (I can’t find a link for) and inked it with Distress ink in Seedless Preserves, and Peacock Feathers.

A piece of Simon Says Stamp Woodgrain Cardstock,edged it in seedless preserves, and tor a piece of Bazzill 40lbs vellum and tore it slightly larger.

A banner cut out of DCWV Burlap paper and covered it in many layers of Picket Fence Distress Paint, and layered a vintage Doily under it. Die cut 2 of the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Peacock Feathers and watercoloured them with Distress ink. Die cut and stamped the sentiment from the All Occasion Banners set.

May’s favourites….

Here we go again another month is done and here are my 3 favourite products for this month

 

Indigoblu Mega Flakes:

MF Royal Peacock-650x650

 

This stuff is seriously lovely, I know you haven’t seen any project with it…. YET! Be on the lookout next month as I have been making some fun things with it. You can start with the Kit in a Box which comes with everything you need to get started, then there are many other colours of the Mega Flakes, I personally love the Lancashire Rose Flakes, and the next ones I will be picking up are the ones pictures above, Royal Peacock.

 

Tim Holtz Ray Stencil

 

THRays

 

Stencils have been really popular in the cardmaking world lately and here is one of my favourites, this is a fun stencil from Tim Holtz, when you blend different colours together through it its just a truely lovely look.

 

Faber Castell Gelato

FaberCastellGelatosBlue

 

These are so fun! They come in a wide variety of colours, are water soluble and just blend lovely with only your finger! I made a little Butterfly Card using them earlier this month and must play with them some more.

 

One of these days I will have a flop for you all, something new I tried this month that I just really didn’t like, but this month that did not happen. Which is actually a good thing I didn’t waste anything money

Stencil Card Challenge

This weeks challenge is to use a stencil on your card… and here is mine.

 

MY B 1

 

Here it is! I am happy with the way this card turned out, aside from the flowers everything on this card is made from white paper and coloured using Distress Inks (weathered wood, crushed olive, dusty concord, seedless preserves, fired brick). The Stencils used were Prima’s Chevron stencil, and the Tim Holtz Ray stencil.

MY B 2

 

The image is from Sherry Baldy’s My Besties (the first time I have coloured one of her images) and coloured using my Copic Markers.

 

MY B 3

 

The Feathers are die cut from Spellbinders Shapeabilities Peacock Feathers dies, and the frame around the Happy Birthday sentiment (from Simon Says Stamp) is from Spellbinders Fancy Frames 1. All the feather on the card are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

 

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to link up your card below. (you will be able to see all cards linked using this tool as well)
