Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this CAS Plant Birthday Card.



I made this card for a principal of the school I work at, who's birthday was this weekend.

I used stamps from two beautiful Jane's Doodles stamp sets: 'Plants' and 'CAKE!'. :o)


I stamped a plant image on a watercolor paper and colored the plant in watercolor technique using Distress Ink. After drying, I fussy cut the image leaving white thin border around it.

Then I stamped a sentiment on a white cardstock paper panel (I did some masking on the sentiment), glued the panel on a foam sheet square and glued it on a top folded card base. I also glued another panel inside the card to make it sturdier.

I love dimension on my cards, so I glued foam on the image too and glued it above the sentiment. Lastly, I embellished the card with violet sequins. :o)

List of supplies:

Dreams Come True Card (LMMS Inspiration)


Hi everyone! :o)

It's Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Week and I made this CAS (clean and simple), Dreams Come True Card. :o)


For my card I used beautiful LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Polka Dot Pals Kaari' digital stamp, image released to the store today.

I was inspired with a card I shared last week for a current LMM's challenge #171, You are Magical Card.

I printed the image on a watercolor paper and left it dry for a day. I colored the image in watercolor technique using Distress Inks.

After drying, I fussy cut the image and traced edges with a black fibre-tip pen. Then I printed another image on a white cardstock paper, colored the image with the black fibre-tip pen and glued the colored image over it. I did this to make the image thicker as the watercolor paper I used is very thin and wouldn't work with 3-D foams.

I heat embossed in white on a black cardstock paper stripe a sentiment form Jane's Doodles 'Magical' stamp set.

With all parts finished, I glued 3-D foams on the image and sentiment and placed them on a white top folded card base. I embellished the card with two red enamel dots. As a finishing touch, I drew highlights and dots with a white gel pen and my card was finished. :o)

Card dimensions: 89 mm x 121 mm (3 1/2" x 4 3/4")

List of supplies:
  • LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Polka Dot Pals Kaari' digital stamp
  • Jane's Doodles 'Magical' stamp set (sentiment)
  • white cardstock paper
  • black cardstock paper
  • white watercolor paper

You are Magical Card II (LMMS Challenge #171)


Happy Friday! :o)


A new challenge has started at Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge Blog. It's #171, Anything Goes Challenge.


For this challenge I made this CAS (clean and simple), You are Magical Card II.



I made this card for my niece Nika who started new Kindergarten year on Monday. 

I used a super cute C.C. Designs 'Butterfly Twila' stamp, available in LMM's shop.

I stamped the image on a watercolor paper. I colored the image in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. Inspired with two cards I created this summer (find them here and here), I went with blue color scheme again. Love it!! :o)

After drying, I fussy cut the image, traced edges with a black fibre-tip pen and worked on the image with stylus ball, which softened the paper and curved the image a bit. This is such an easy technique to add a dimension to your images. :o)

Then I stamped another image on a white top folded card base and a sentiment form Jane's Doodles 'Magical' stamp set. I colored the image with the black fibre-tip pen and glued the colored image over it. I didn't glued down wings, which gave an extra dimension to the image.

As a finishing touch, I drew highlights and dots with a white gel pen and my card was finished. :o)


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

List of supplies:
  • C.C. Designs 'Butterfly Twila' stamp, available in LMM's shop
  • Jane's Doodles 'Magical' stamp set (sentiment)
  • white cardstock paper (card base)
  • white watercolor paper (image)
  • Ranger Archival Ink (Jet Black)

This Monday a new school year started in Croatia. I made this card for my niece Tea, 1st grade student. 

For a card base I used Canson XL Mixed Media Paper and stamped directly on the card base. I used stamps from three super adorable Jane's Doodles stamp sets: 'Read All About It!', 'Magical' and 'Unicorn'. :o)

  

colored everything in a watercolor technique using Distress Inks (DI). First I colored a blue background, covered a girl with paper towel pieces and splattered the background with DI Blueprint Sketch and with water. Then I watercolored all images (Moon, stars, girl). I was inspired with colors from a photo below shared on Addicted to Stamps and More blog for the challenge #255 - Photo inspiration. This is my 3rd project made using this color scheme. I love it!!! You can find my previous projects here and here. :o)


After coloring, I left card air dry for couple hours. As a finishing touch, I highlighted images and sentiment and drew dots all over the card with a white gel pen. :o)

Blow Fish Card (Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight)

http://kittybeedesigns.blogspot.com/

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Kitty Bee Designs and I made this one layer, watercolored Blow Fish Card. :o)


To make this card I was inspired with a card I created in April 2017, Cow over the Moon Card.

For my today's card I used a super cute Kitty Bee Designs 'Blow Fish' digital image. This image is from 2013 Sea Buddies V.2 collection. :o)

For a card base I used Canson XL Mixed Media Paper.

I printed the fish on the card base and left it aside for 12 hours to dry, to prevent ink smearing while coloring.

I colored everything in a watercolor technique using Distress Inks (DI). First I colored a blue background, covered the fish with paper towel pieces and splattered the background with DI Blueprint Sketch and with water. When I was satisfied with background I watercolored the fish and left my card dry for two hours. As a finishing touch, I added white highlights and dots with a white gel pen. :o)


Dimensions: 95 mm x 127 mm (3 3/4" x 5")

List of supplies:
  • Kitty Bee Designs 'Blow Fish' Digital Stamp from 2013 Sea Buddies V2.
