Birthday Card for my Mom ♥ (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)


Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this CAS (clean and simple) Birthday Card for my Mom who's birthday is today. :o)

♥ HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!! 



To create this card I used stamps from two Jane's Doodles stamp sets: Mother's Day and Bloom

 

These two sets were perfect to create a card for my Mom. I used word MAMA, which is Croatian word for Mother, and gorgeous roses, because they are my Mom's favorite flowers and her name is Ruža, which is Croatian word for Rose. :o)

I made a background on a white cardstock paper panel. I went with watermark stamping technique using VersaMark Watermark Ink. This is not anything new in a stamping world, but I'm starting to explore it and I love it. 

I glued a foam sheet on the back of the panel and glued it on a white top folded card base.

I stamped roses and leaves on a white watercolor paper and colored them in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. My mom's favorite color is violet, so my choice was obvious. :o)

After coloring, I fussy cut all images, traced edges with black marker and glued them on the card, leaving petals unglued, to add some dimension to my card. To add even more dimension, I used some foam tape to pop up the rose on top.



Card dimensions: 89 mm x 120 mm (3 1/2" x 4 3/4")

  • Jane's Doodles 'Mother's Day' stamp set

Next up was coloring. I LOOOOVE Black & White photos and love to color B&W. I colored my card in watercolor technique using only Distress Inks Black Soot. After coloring I left the card to dry on air.

I'm very satisfied with my coloring on this card. :o)

Wedding Card no. #3 (Fairy Tale Challenge #179)


Hi everyone! :o)


On Tuesday, October 24th, a new challenge has started over at Fairy Tale Challenge BlogI had such a crazy week I didn't manage to post here on my blog earlier.

Our theme for this fortnight is #179, Nicht mehr als 4 / Not more than 4. Use 4 or less items on your handmade projects, something like this:
  • image, design paper, colors, sequins
  • image, embossing folder, paper
  • design paper, ribbon, glue etc.

This time our lucky winner will win this lovely mini hippo stamp set.


And here is my take on the challenge: CAS (clean and simple), Wedding Card.


4 items I used on my project are: image, white paper, colors and Wink of Stella.

I used BEAUTIFUL Stamping Bella 'uptown couple BRETT and BRENDA get married' rubber stamp. This is my third take on this stamp. If you like, you can find my two previous cards using this image here and here.

I stamped the image on a watercolor paper, left it dry for couple minutes and colored the image in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After coloring and drying, I fussy cut the image, traced edges with a fibre-tip pen and softened the image on a soft working mat using a stylus ball. The image curled a bit.

I stamped another image on a white top folded card base and colored the whole image in black with the black fibre-tip pen. Before I stamped the image, I printed couple's names (for whom I was making this card) inside the card.

I glued the colored image over the image colored in black.

As a finishing touch, I rounded two opposite corners with paper puncher and covered bride's shoes, bouquet and heart with Clear Wink of Stella. :o)

  • Stamping Bella 'uptown couple BRETT and BRENDA get married' rubber stamp
  • white cardstock paper (card base, sentiment)
  • thin white watercolor paper (panel)

      Halloween Card (I Love Math Challenge #7 mid-inspiration)


      Hello everyone!

      There are seventeen more days to join the seventh I Love Math Challenge. :o) If you're new to my blog, you can find more about the challenge and previous challenges here.

      The theme for this challenge is SEVEN: use number 7 or seven something on your project.

      Seven is an odd number and fourth prime number
      An odd number is a number that cannot be divided evenly with 2. 
      prime number can be divided, without a remainder, only by itself and by 1.



      Today I'm sharing my inspiration card for the challenge. I made this one layer, Halloween Card.


      I stamped 7 bats and a sentiment from Jane's Doodles 'Haunted House' stamp set directly on a front panel of a white top folded card base. I cut a circle from a cardstock paper scrap and masked the part where I wanted the Moon to be. I blended Distress Inks Wilted Violet and Dusty Concord on the panel and blended edges with Distress Ink Black Soot. When I was satisfied with my Halloween sky, I removed mask and left card to dry a bit on air. As a finishing touch, I coated bats with clear Wink of Stella.


      Card dimensions: 95 mm x 127 mm  (3 3/4" x 5")
      List of supplies :
