Relaxing Holiday Beach Card.

Hello. Today I am sharing a card made using one of the stamp sets from the new Lawn Fawn release. The set is called On The Beach.

I started with the background. I cut a rough mask from a piece of purple tape to be the shape of a horizen line. I then used Distress Oxide inks in Antique linen for the sand and Peacock Feathers for the sea. I used a Picket Fence blending brush and added the ink making sure to blend lighter in each colour towards where they meet but not letting the colours touch. This leaves the illusion of white sea foam.

I then took some gold watercolour from Gansai Tambi and flicked it from the edge of a paint brush to add some texture to the sand area. I lightly blended some Oxide in salty ocean over the sky area in random areas to keep some areas of white.

Next I worked on the images. I stamped them on to Neenah solar white 80lb cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured them with my Copic markers. I then cut them out with my Scan N Cut machine. arranged them roughly where I wanted them on my scene and cut away the white border with a small pair of scissors where I wanted the images to overlap (the suncream with the shell and bear with the ball.)

I stamped the sentiment using my Misti and the Memento black ink. Then adhered the images using a tape runner.

To complete the card I added some Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen to add sparkle to the umbrella.

I hope you like the card. Take care for now.

Simple Hello Card

Hello.

Today I am sharing a quick and easy hello card. I used one of the stamps from the Bee Happy stamp set from Time For Tea Designs.

I used honey pot stamp and coloured each pot in rainbow order with my Copic markers. I then used the coordinating die to cut the pots out.

I took a white card base and a piece of patterned paper and cut a piece that was about one third of the height of the card and adhered it to the card base with a tape runner. This paper is from the Lawn Fawn ‘let’s polka in the meadow’ collection.

I then placed the honey pots above the paper and adhered them with the tape runner. I stamped the hello sentiment in Memento Tuxedo black ink to complete the card.

You could use this design with any stamps and patterned paper for quick and easy cards. Give it a try.

Miss You Card

Hello.

Today I am sharing a card made as part of the Altenew Seasonal Scene Building class from Altenew Academy.

This class was all about building scene cards which I do often, but this class got me to think differently. So I decided to create a simple scene card without the addition of my usual colouring.

I started the card by blending a bright background using Distress Oxide inks in Salty Ocean, Broken China and Mowed Lawn. I flicked a little water over, soaked up the excess and set aside to dry.

Next I took a leaf stamp from the ‘Floral Shadow’ Altenew stamp set. I placed it in my Misti stamping platform and stamped it into the top corner using Memento Tuxedo black ink. I stamped it twice to make sure the image was nice and dark. I then stamped the bird and bench from the ‘Garden Grow’ stamp set from Altenew below the leaves. I added the miss you sentiment from the floral shadow set.

To complete the card I trimmed down the edges of the card panel slightly smaller than my card base and adhered it on to a piece of black cardstock so there was a thin black border around the edge and adhered this to my card base to complete the card.

Take care for now.

Toucan Of My Afftection Card.

Hello.

Today is an exciting day for Time For Tea Designs as it is new release day. I am sharing a shaker card featuring the new clear stamp set Toucan Do This available now.

I started the card by ink blending a card panel to fit my card base with Distress Oxide inks Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron. I flicked some Gansai Tambi white gold watercolour paint from a paintbrush to add some sparkle and set this aside to dry. Once dry I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo black ink.

Next I stamped the images using the Memento ink I selected the birds, tree branch, hearts and leaves on to some Neenah 80lb cardstock and coloured them with my Copic markers. I then cut them out with my scan n cut machine.

I used a circle die to cut out a window from the green panel and adhered some acetate on the back of the panel with a tape runner. I then adhered the images around the window with my tape runner.

To make the shaker element I placed 3 layers of foam tape around the window and around the edges of the card panel. I used an anti static powder tool around the window area then filled it with sequins. I used the Mardi Gras Parade mix from Doodles Paper Playground.

I then released the foam tape and adhered a card base to the panel to complete the card.

I hope you like it as much as I do.

Purrfect Day Card

Hello.

Today I am sharing a card for Time For Tea Designs combining a digi stamp with clear stamps.

I started by printing the phone from the Time For Tea Designs Bonnie hey friend digital stamp set. I coloured the outside of the phone using my Copic markers. I then took the clear stamp set Mew Are Pawsome and stamped the cat in a box image into the middle of the phone, using Memento Tuxedo black ink. I drew in some lines to look like there was a skirting board and coloured the cat, box and surrounding areas to look like the cat was in a room having his photo taken!

Next I fussy cut the image and set it aside while I worked on the background. I took a card base, some Distress Oxide ink in spun sugar and a stencil from Altenew called ‘watercolor stripes’ I went over the stencil with the ink using a blending tool then leaving the stencil attached spritzed some water over the inked areas and soaked up any excess water with a paper towel.

Once the ink was dry I took the sentiments from the mew are pawsome stamp set and stamped them on the background. To complete the card I adhered the phone with a tape runner.

I hope you like it. Thanks for dropping by.

Mermaid Birthday Card

Hello. Today I am sharing a card using clear stamps from Time For Tea Designs.

I used two clear stamp sets ‘Swimming by to say hi’ and ‘Mermazing’

These stamps are available exclusively from Create and Craft

I started by stamping the mermaid, starfish and shell images on to X-press it blending card with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then used my Copic markers to colour the images. I cut them out and placed them to one side.

Next I worked on the background. I cut some masking paper to mask the corners and leave a wave shape through the centre of a card base. I then used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink with a blending tool to add colour over the area. To add the bubbles I took the Time For Tea Designs ‘wonderful waves’ stencil and used the bubbles to stencil over using Blueprint sketch Distress Oxide. I then spritzed the inked area with water and soaked up the excess with a paper towel.

Finally I stamped the sentiments using my Misti and adhered the images, using foam pads for the mermaid and a liquid glue for the shells and starfish to complete the card.

Thanks for dropping by.

Places You’ll Flamingo Card

Hello. I hope you are well.

The flamingos on the Lawn Fawn stamp set Flamingo Together get me thinking about one of the items on my bucket list which is to visit Aruba. I decided to use this as inspiration for my card.

I started the card by stamping some flamingos on to some Copic friendly cardstock. I then coloured them using my Copic Markers, I did the same with the palm trees, cut them all out and put them to one side.

Next I worked on the background. I took a piece of white cardstock to make a card base and blended my Distress Oxides straight on top. I masked an area for the sky and blended salty ocean. I then masked the sky to blend the sea using peacock feathers. I used antique linen for the sand, making sure there was a small white space between the sand and sea areas to represent the waves.

Once the background was dry I stamped the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo black ink and used foam squares to adhere the flamingos. I the adhered the palm trees using a tape runner to complete the card.

Take care for now
