I'm new to this blogging thing, so hopefully this layout works for now! Feel free to contact me if you want to purchase a card or place an order for a card! I sell cards for $3.00 each. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Final Card Project - I made 4 of these, two red and two green just changing the sentiments and the shape of the snowflakes. I used the Marvy Snow Pen for the 3D effect and a lantern die. I love how they turned out especially since I am just learning how to water color!
Had some fun today making gift card tags for the holidays! This is a die set from Reverse Confetti which makes the design so easy! I didn't put any gift cards in them yet, but you can see the spot where they go - near the top where the little embellishment is :)
Altenew Poinsettia and Pine stamp set colored with copic markers after heat embossing with black. I fussy cut it and adhered it to pattern paper with a red card stock frame added and vellum greeting (Lawn Fawn)
This is the Kensington Christmas Tree from Memory Box. I colored it with copic markers before popping it out of the white card stock, adhered it to white card base and framed it with a scalloped die cut. Added a few Lawn Fawn snowflakes and voila, a simple card. (sorry for the quality of the pic!)
Here's another Thanksgiving card using some new products and pattern paper. This was my first attempt adding a paper bow to a card! I love the stitched leaves (probably from Lawn Fawn) and the GIVING THANKS die.
Hello again! I have another Thanksgiving card. This one uses kraft for the base, some polka dot pattern paper, a mouse from My Favorite Things, and die cut leaves. After I colored the leaves with copic markers, I added some Wink of Stella for shimmer. I die cut some different shapes to mount it all together. What do you think?
I'm loving the Harvest Mouse stamp and dies! I used three colors of brusho to create the card stock and cut it using the Diagonal stitched companion die from Die Namics. The "Thanksgiving" die in blue card stock is from Poppy. The "wishing you a very happy" is from a different stamp set, but it fit in the space perfectly. The mouse, cart, & pumpkins are colored with copic markers.
A Thanksgiving card with lots of details. I created a scene with Lawn Fawn Giving Thanks Mice and used an older Stampin' Up set for the house, trees, pumpkins. I had to make masks, which I don't mind when creating a scene. Copics were used to color the images; plus a new cross die on the top and bottom edge of the panel. Oh, yes, the sentiment is from a set called Words to the Rescue by Steve Fadie. I love it!
A little hard to see with the shining light, but this card is my favorite so far for the holidays. I love, love, love the stockings full of mouse! This is a stamp set created by Lawn Fawn for Simon Says Stamp. And, the strings of lights are from Memory Box. Everything was colored with copic markers.
Two more cards I made for #sharehomemadekindness this week. A campaign to help with bullying organized by Jennifer McGuire and sponsored by many generous craft companies. Check out her blog here:
AND, I must say thank you to #ChristopherAllen from #Brutusmonroe for sharing digital kindness with all of his periscope viewers. Yes, Chris, these are cards made with your designs! Got them finished in one day! Mailing out tomorrow (or rather today since it's already after midnight! LOL
Love the effect of the brusho water color powders on this paper. I sprayed the whole sheet with Heidi Swapp Gold color shine and boy did it glow. Might be hard to see in this pic. The Lawn Fawn leaf dies were cut out of distress ink colored paper. The leaf in the middle also has Distress crackle paint on top. Check out the close up shot below. The Thanksgiving die is from Poppy, cut from gold card stock, and some gold ribbon to tie it altogether.
Hi everyone! I still had some of the paper I created with brusho left over from my other projects, so I decided to make one more card with it. Here I chose to combine the colorful fall paper with black accents! My stamp "fall is when nature turns to gold" is an older Inkadinkado one. I should have used the misti so I could have stamped it twice. It's not as dark as I'd like it. But the rest turned out fine. It's hard to see here, but the card is very shiny.
Two cards were created using the paper I colored with Brusho water color powders in yellow, orange, and red. I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Grand Maple die to create a space in the panel and swirled some Antique Linen distress ink on white card stock for the background for the mice (colored with copic markers and die cut) from Lawn Fawn "Thankful Mice." Love these little guys! The smaller leaves are from Lawn Fawn stitched leaves set cut out of brown paper and "painted" with wink of stella gold. The sentiments are from two sets, Hero Arts and Stampendous "Bery Mice."
Here's another card with the My Favorite Things Harvest Mouse Stamp Set. The brown paper was stamped with Altenew wood tone stamp first then cut using Die Namics Stitched Companion die. I love these dies because they fit on A2 cards so perfectly. Takes the guess work out and saves you a few steps. The card was finished with some ribbon, a red card base, the copic colored mouse and basket of apples. Cute huh?
A few weeks ago I watched Jenn Shurkus coloring leaves with distress inks, blending colors together, applying Tim Holtz crackle and highlighting with browns. They were gorgeous! I had to try it. The gold ones below were done the same way as Jenn's using distress inks and the crackle paint on Lawn Fawn leaf dies. But the orange ones were accomplished with brusho powder water colors. I used the brusho in reds, oranges, and yellolw on two pieces of water color paper covering the entire area. Then I spritzed the paper with gold spray (need to check the brand!), let them dry and cut out big leaves with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Grand Maple die.
I used a spellbinder die to cut a design from my "fall" paper and layered it on brown card stock and a white card which I colored with a bit of distress inks around the edges. I was looking for something to place in between my leaves, and decided on a pumpkin from Poppy. I covered it with versa mark and used a clear embossing powder which created a dark glossing brown. I liked it so much that I decided to do the same for the "Happy Halloween" sentiment which is from Poppy.
I wish the shine showed up better here. It's really bright and pretty!
