Die cutting and Embossing

Hello!

Just checking in quickly to share my take in this week’s (CAS)E this Sketch #189.

I used a word die cut ‘Hugs’ from Simon Says Stamp and I embossed the yellow card base with this medallion design embossing folder. Its so easy and I finish the card while I’m on the phone with a friend. Multi- tasking you know 🙂

Spritz fun

Happy Saturday!

I’ve been looking for some card challenges different from the ones I usually join in and got this one from Virginia’s View Challenge, Challenge # 23.  The challenge is to use Spray, Mist or Splatter so I looked at my supplies to use.

I found this mini mist Mr Huey’s from Studio Calico that I got from a box haul long time ago. I only  have one color  called Jubilee so I decided to make a monochromatic card instead. It would be nice to have more colors but since I seldom use mini mist and I need the supply now, why not work on what I have and see what I can get out of it?

So I sprayed the mini mist to a white cardstock, then let them dry for sometime. I haven’t played a lot using this technique but it was fun 🙂

then I selected parts of the sprayed paper to stamp my fishes from Avery Elle. I love them 🙂 Since the eyes were also colored with the mist, I stamped the eye part of the fish in a clean white cardstock and fussy cut them to put on top of the sprayed ones. A nice clean pair of eyes would be good right?

I used a sprayed watercolor paper with the same Jubilee color for my background piece. I also added a framed die cut to placed the fishes. An additional sequins would be good also, with the same color scheme of green.

The spritz color added a soft coloring to the stamped images which I love 🙂

Coloring, Embossing, Die cutting

Hello!

I had some extra time and what better way to use that than to create  a card right?

I dig some of my patterned papers and older stamp set from Mama Elephant to make this card. It’s nice to make use of older supplies just because they are and will always be great to play with.

I did some rectangular shapes die cut and embossed the mid-sentiment with white embossing powder. For my image I colored them all with promarker and die cut them also with their coordinating dies.

My card sketch inspiration is from Sketch Saturday # 427.

More watercolor play

Hiya!

So glad that I had some time playing along in card challenges. I haven’t bought crafting supplies like newly released stamps and dies so I used whatever I have on hand.

For my background, I did some watercoloring using distress ink pads. I then white embossed the skyline stamp from Altenew and stamp another sentiment at the bottom from Mama Elephant. The little girl is also from the same stamp set. I colored her with prormarkers too, one of my favorite coloring medium.

I added a printed stripe vellum on the side also with few sequins.

I want to depict a scene of missing someone so I used the skyline to show a place and someone thinking about it 🙂 Cheesy right?

Anyhow, I used a card sketch from Sketch Saturday  # 425.

Super card

Hi there!

It’s another card today using stamps from Paper Smooches.

I stamped the building silhouette in three different ink pads and arranged them behind to create a background scene. I also added the car silhouette too to put in the front.

For my superhero I colored him with promarker.

Popping in today to share my take in CAS(E) this Sketch # 184. I used to join in this challenge blog and happy to be able to join this week.

I always love clean and simple (CAS) cards and it makes me smile to do something clean yet cute in a way.

I have this “You”stamp set from Simon Says Stamp for sometime, finally use them in today’s card. I love the clean lines of the fonts and the combination of stamped heart and die cut hearts. The image is from Mama Elephant 🙂  colored him with promarkers

Underwater fun

Happy Saturday!

I’m checking in quickly to share a fun card using stamps from Mommy Lhey.

First up, I did some watercoloring in the background, somewhat mimicking the underwater colors. Some blues and purples are just right isn’t it? I also white embossed the seahorse and plants to add in the scene.

For my images, I colored them with promarker and fussy cut them then adding some foam dimensional for extra pop. I added some sequins also to add some more fun.

I used a card sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge # 169.

Hello there!

Just stopping by to share a card using a sketch from Reverse Confetti, April Sketch challenge.

I die cut the donuts using the Donut You Know Confetti Cuts and sentiment from Donut You Know.

I always love using card sketch as it gives me a base on how to create the card, its fun to play with too, wondering how you will be able to do your take on the sketch.

I added hearts instead of the circles, just to add some extra fun
