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.

Bee Happy Card

Hello. Today I am sharing a card for Time For Tea Designs using supplies from the new release. You can get the bee Bee Happy stamp set from the Time For Tea Designs Shop and use discount code T4TKATRINA10 to get 10% off your entire purchase.

I started the card by blending the background panel. I used Neenah 80lb cardstock. Using Distress Oxide inks in carved pumpkin and mustard seed. I lightly blended a little of the lighter ink on the panel so it wasn’t white then took the Time For Tea Designs ‘Bee Hive’ stencil and laid it over the top and blended the ink keeping the centre yellow (mustard seed) and blending out to the darker shade (carved pumpkin.)

Next I stamped and coloured the bee from the ‘Bee Happy’ stamp set using my Copic markers and die cut it with the coordinating die.

I cut the panel down so it was slightly smaller than my card base to leave a thin border. Then adhered the panel to the base with a tape runner.

I stamped and heat embossed the bee happy sentiment on to black card with Wow white embossing powder and cut it down to a thin strip.

I attached the bee to the centre of the card using an action wobbler and added the sentiment strip underneath with a tape runner. I added some sequins with liquid glue to complete the card.

Have a great week ahead
