We’ve had snow showers in and off all day. Thankfully it’s not sticking to the ground but it’s definitely a reminder that winter is just around the corner.
The card I’m going to share today fits in with the snow theme.
I got the semi circle stitched dies from Sunny Studio Stamos and I love it…I’m sure you will see lots of cards using this die in the future! I combined it with the Snow Buddies stamp set from MFT Stamps.
I used the die to cut some white paper. For the middle piece of the die I used distress oxide inks and then splattered it with some water and then some perfect pearls to give it some texture and a little bit of shimmer.
I stamped the images and colored them with copic markers. I then cut them with my scan n cut.
For the front of the card, I stamped some snowflakes with versamark ink Alan’s heat embossed it with clear embossing powder for a subtle effect. It’s hard to see in the pictures.
I added some foam tape to the back of the white panel and added it to some navy card-stock. I then adhered it to a white card base. I inserted the blue background and used some liquid glue to secure it and then used the same liquid glue to add the images. I then stamped the sentiment on navy card stock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.
I love this stamp set and and I love this die, so I’m thrilled with how the card came out.
A week or so ago we drove up into the mountains to see the fall leaves…unfortunately most of the leaves were gone already but it was so beautiful anyway. We even saw a little snow. Here’s some pictures:
Today I made a few birthday cards using a stamp set from Penny Black and some dies from MFT.
I handstamped the images and used my copic markers for coloring.
I cut the images out and layered them on some patterned paper.
I used the dies from MFT to create a nice edge and then stamped the sentiment. I finished off the cards by adding an enamel heart.
Which one is your favorite? I think I like the one with the little girl holding the balloons the best.
I love butterflies. We have had a swallow tail butterfly hanging around our yard for a little while. Some people believe that when a butterfly is near, a loved one from the other side is saying hello. Its nice to think that could be true.
Today I made a couple of cards featuring butterflies. Both of them were made in the same way although I made the backgrounds different.
For this one I stamped the butterflies and the sentiment in black versafine ink and then used clear emobossing powder and heat set it. Then I cut masks and covered the butterflies and then used a striped stencil and three shades of distress inks to create the background. I used Arteza real brush markers to color the butterflies. I then framed the main panel with black cardstock to make it pop and adhered it to a white card base.
This card was made the same way, just using a different sentiment and a different stencil. I used 3 shades of purple distress inks for the background.
I went shopping today and picked up some new stamp sets…not that I needed any more but you know how it is! I bought a few stamps and dies from Photoplay and I made a card with them today.
I’m not a big joke person…and I don’t think I’m very funny, but I love a good pun! My brothers and my daughters all got the funny gene. These stamps are quite small but there are a lot of them in the set and it was nice to make a clean and simple card.
I started by stamping the image in memento tuxedo black ink and then colored it with copic markers. I used the matching dies to cut it out. I then used some Gina K. dye ink and brushed on some color to the center of the panel. I propped up the image with some foam pads and then stamped the sentiment which reads “I’m your biggest fan”.
I added some navy cardstock to frame the panel with and then adhered it all to an A2 cardbase.
There’s not a lot going on so lets just jump in and share a card!
This is a card I made the other day so we will start out with this one.
This is a slimline card (9″x4″) I made using a stamp set from My Favorite Things called “Party Animals”. I will add all the links below. I stamped the images and then colored them with a mixture of copic and spectrum noir alcohol makers. I stamp with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Neenah Classic Crest 80lb solar white cardstock. After the images were colored I fussy cut them out.
I used Whimsy stamps Slimline Marquee Die for the “windows”. I created some clouds with distress oxide inks in tumbled glass and used the mini edge clouds stencil from My favorite things. I cut some grass with the Honey Bee stamps grass border die.
To create the card base I used Recollections heavy weight white cardstock from Michaels. I use it all the time for my card bases and really like it. I cut it to 9″x8″ and scored and folded it at 4″.
I used some photo play paper that I had lying around to create the background and to cover the “window” part of the card. I made sure to stamp my sentiments before I started to construct the card. I then used foam tape to prop up the window panel and then added the images with a mixture of liquid glue and foam tape.
So that is pretty much it for this card. I hope you like it. I enjoy doing slimline cards as it gives you more space to work with. I’ll be back soon with another card.
