Underwear Wreath Card

Hello there, Christine here with an A2 card that uses he sentiment is from a stamp set from the newest release I Believe and pairs it with a wreath and the Floral Wave Stencil!  

I started by spreading Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste (Aurora shimmer) over the Floral Wave Stencil onto 110 lb Neenah solar white cardstock. I set it aside to dry overnight. There is no color underneath, but just the sparkle paste itself provides interest and creates a lovely background as you can see below. The wreath was created with a die I had in my stash and I die cut 2 different shades of green with it.

In the meantime I cut out the images and sentiment from the I Believe stamp set and then did some really simple copic coloring with red tones only (R46, R59) to create some contrast to the green stems of the wreath.  The sentiment itself really does so much for the design of the card that you don’t have to spend much time on the other images for the card to feel finished.  I added some gold baubles (Trinity Stamps) and twine in green and gold to just tie everything together.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

International Tea Day with CLC

I’m celebrating National Tea Day with the CLC team with an A2 card that uses lots of products from My Favorite Things that you can purchase from Super Sponsor Ellen Hutson. I used the MFT Puppy Love dies, the Christmas Cheer Paper Pad, the Holly Berries Dies, Birdie Brown Alphabet & Numbers Die-namics, Sweet Snowflakes dies and a stamp & die set from Super Sponsor Lawn Fawn: Thanks a Latte (that has coffee and tea stamps & dies).

First I die cut all the puppy pieces from the MFT Puppy Love dies in different color cardstocks. I glued the pieces together as shown below to create a super happy puppy. I die cut the sentiment from copper metallic cardstock with the Birdie Brown Alphabet & Numbers Die-namics. The background cardstock from the Christmas Cheer Paper Pad was cut with a stitched rectangle die I had in my stash. I die cut the holly berries & leaves with the Holly Berries Dies out of red & green cardstock in my stash. The snowflakes and snow mound were cut with the Sweet Snowflakes dies out of glitter cardstock I had in my stash.

The tea cup was stamped copic marker friendly Lawn Fawn ink in crunchy leaf and colored with R14, R22 & YR27 copic markers.

Peace & Joy Slider Card

Hi there, Christine here with a slimline slider card using the new stamps sets Little Angel and Mountainside. I love both of these sets so much that this is the second time I’ve used them together, but this time I’ve put them together this time on a slimline card and used different techniques.

First I die cut a Slimline Slider base and pull tab (Trinity Stamps Slimline Surprises die set) out of 110lb Neenah cardstock in solar white.  I taped all the edges off and ink blended a pink sky using distress ink in tattered rose and the edges in worn lipstick.  I only lightly inked the center behind the trees.  One tip is to prep your die cuts before you ink blend, place everything where you want it and then ink blend accordingly.

I used a new to me product that has been in my stash for a while- Nuvo Mousse in powder blue and seaspray green.  I love to play with new things and while ideas don’t always work out, I get better at fixing them to my liking.  I “painted” the mousse on with a paint brush and the seaspray green ended up being too dark, so I added some Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste in Frosty Kiss over it to lighten it up. Finally I did some ink splatters with white acrylic ink to create more variation in the sky.

I set the panel aside to dry, and then glued on my die cut from the Mountainside stamp set that I had cut with my Brother ScanNCut2.  The trees were copic colored with G24 & G28 and the mountains were colored with W3 and W0. There is a video over at Trinity Stamps on how to assemble a slider card, so I won’t elaborate here.

I die cut the images and sentiment from Little Angel in the same manner with my Brother CutNScan2. The bunny was copic colored with C3, C0 and R00, the angel was copic colored with E31,E34 (hair) E000 (skin), R00, R30, R22, E31 (dress & shoes) basket & contents with W0, W3, YR15, YR68, E34, E31 and G24.

I wanted some gold around the sentiment to make it really stand out, but I didn’t want to use gold acrylic paint, so I tried to make a light gold glittery paste by combining Perfect Pearls in Perfect Gold with Cosmic Shimmer Pal Blaze Polish and painted it on.  It was a bit heavier than I wanted it to look, but it certainly is dramatic!

The Slimline slider card allows the recipient to pull on the top tab so that the scene can stand up as shown in the photo below:

Pour the Merlot!

Hi there, Christine here with a glittery card using the new stamp set Blitzened that I have paired with a stencil called Art Deco.  Our poor little reindeer looks like he has definitely hit the wine during a Christmas party the night before.

First I die cut an A2 panel with a stitched rectangle die I had in my stash and taped off the outer border. I then ink blended with distress oxide ink in bundled sage over the Art Deco stencil and immediately added sparkle paste (Couture Creations) over the inked areas. I set the panel aside to dry overnight and immediately washed the stencil. 

In the meantime I die cut all the images & sentiments from the Blitzened stamp set and did some simple copic coloring (E35, E31, W0 for the reindeer, G24 for the bottle and Y11 for the lights). I love that the image has so much on it and tells a story that you really don’t need anything else to complete the card!  I die cut a border in light green cardstock that I had in stash to complete the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!
