Not been around on the blog much the last few weeks… sorry.
Not really got much crafting done but hopefully will get some done this weekend.
I did however manage to get my design team contribution done for Craftyhazelnuts Christmas challenge where the theme is to use a star, or two, or more!
I chose this Bugaboo digital image and coloured it with promarkers and added Wink of Stella to the star.
I layered the image onto a scrap of felt to give the card some texture and used brads to add to the card with something different.
I layered the felt onto a few patterned paper pieces and used washi tape to add sparkle.
Then I added it to a red card blank. I added the Tim Holtz chipboard sentiment and then finished with three black shiny star confetti which kept the look funky.
Love this Bugaboo image… so cute and easy to colour!
Today on the Back to Basics and Beyond challenge blog there is a bingo card to play with.
I chose to use the middle column… blue, flower, pearls… and made this card.
I chose patterned papers from the stash that had blue within them and mounted a few panels with blue cardstock. I teamed these with a doily to soften the background. Then I added the digital image I had printed and coloured with promarkers.
I added the stamped sentiment and then pearls and a flower so I could fulfil the bingo card.
Fun to make and a pretty card as a result.
Wonder what line you would make for your bingo? Why not join us at the blog?
So it’s the day of Cupid so it is time to share the card I made for the hubby…
I decided to go with this cute digital stamp image and washi tape for the background. Then stamped hearts and the sentiments to frame the cluster. I then heat embossed the sentiment onto black cardstock.
I added some dots of enamel accents to finish off.
Today is the final day in my advent cardmaking series… was touch and go whether I would get all 24 videos done… but got there! And saved the nativity as my final theme… after all that’s what Christmas is all about!
The card I made is a simple one… a digi stamp image I had already coloured and a panel with papers I had already sorted beforehand.
So I pretty much added the frame and the sentiment and added some shimmer using my wink of Stella and that’s pretty much it!
So I hope you’ve enjoyed this series of cards… it’s been fun having a different theme each day. Here is the last video.
And now it is time for me to enjoy the festivities… wishing you all a fabulous Christmas!
Today’s card makes use of some digi stamps I had coloured some time ago and then a mixed media background… love the combo of the cute images with the shiny background.
So the video sets out how I made these… enjoy!
And here is a pic I too in the a daylight to show the true colours…
Today I went for something really quick as I hadn’t got much time… so a prepared card and a digital stamp I had coloured using promarkers.
I added a layer of vellum and a sentiment sticker and finished with lots of shimmer on the carrot nose on the snowman.
So a very quick and simple card today… enjoy the speedy video!
And here is a pic in daylight… it’s amazing the difference the real light makes.
Hello… in amongst all the Christmas madness I have a bright and cheery birthday card to share… which happens to be my design team contribution to the Back to Basics and Beyond challenge blog… and the challenge is … RESIST TECHNIQUE.
one of my favourite uses of this technique is to create a water colour background so that’s exactly what I did!
I used the Handcarved background stamp which I partially inked with versamark, stamped and then heat embossed. Then using diluted brushos in purple colours and a brush I added the colour. I also splashed colour to add to the messy vibrant patch of colour.
I chose a focal image (digital stamp from all Dressed up) and coloured it with spectrum noir pencils. Then I Found a happy birthday sentiment in my stamps and added that on a die cut circle. I edged the circle to make sure it popped with a stampin write marker.
Finished it off with some sequins.
