All Of Me And My Dragons

I have absolutely enjoyed making this card…these dragons from Mama Elephant are so adorable and I love all the tiny images in this set which can be used to create so many different scenes for cards…I also had a lot of fun making the night background which I have made following Jennifer McGuire’s Glazed Distress Oxide technique

I applied some Distress Oxide inks on my craft mat and sprayed some water….I then used a glossy cardstock and smooshed that ink onto the paper,drying it with a heat gun and repeating the process…I have used black soot,wilted violet,squeezed lemonade and lucky clover shades of oxide inks…once there was enough colour and layers on this panel and it was completely dry, I applied some Distress glaze and buffed it with a soft cloth before adhering it to a plain white card base…

I die cut two city backgrounds…one using black cardstock and another from grey cardstock….I adhered the black one to the card front and reversed the grey one, lightly inked the edges and adhered it on front of the black one using some adhesive foam…
Next, I stamped and coloured in all the images and die cut them and adhered them to the card…I stamped the sentiment on a white label and added some tiny rhinestones to embellish my card..

Heart Card For The Flower Challenge #19

It has been a while since I made a shaped card,so I was quite happy to participate in ‘The Flower Challenge #19 in which the theme is ‘shaped cards’…although I have made a heart shaped card for this challenge,I did not use red colour for the heart card base and/or top layer since I thought it would take the focus away from the softly coloured die cut flowers…

I did spend quite a lot of time figuring out the layout of flowers for my card but was quite happy with the end result…I think I will try out a few more shaped cards later sometime…
I started by die cutting two large hearts to create the heart shaped card base and then covered one of them with mermaid lagoon oxide ink…this was the card front…I also applied some Distress glaze on this panel so that the ink does not rub off or get smudged…I scored 1/2″ from the top on the second heart and adhered it behind thisĀ  one and my card base was ready..

Next,I die cut a smaller heart for the front panel and sponged some cracked pistachio oxide ink…I die cut some flowers and leaves and then coloured them in with various oxide inks – twisted citron,wild honey,picked raspberry,shaded lilac,salty ocean and squeezed lemonade…I also sprinkled some water for effect and then placed them on the top layer….I used adhesive foam squares under some of the flowers for a bit of dimension…I then used some craft foam underneath this front panel before adhering it to the card base…

I stamped the sentiment label using red ink and die cut that with the coordinating die and placed it on my card and then used some clear confetti sequins to embellish my card…

Easter Egg Hunt

I had tried out creating a unique pattern using the Drifts & Hills stencil in the Easter card I shared last week…and for today’s card I have done the same for my background panel after watching a tutorial video by Jennifer McGuire to create a glazed Distress Oxide effect on glossy paper…I did not have the glossy paper she used in the tutorial so I used Kodak glossy photo paper and got great results!!

To create the background panel,I cut photo paper to size and then dabbed some Distress Oxide Inks on my craft mat – picked raspberry,orange marmalade and squeezed lemonade, and spritzed some water on them….I smooshed glossy side of my photo paper on it to pick up the ink and then heat set it before repeating the process…to seal the ink on the paper I have rubbed a tiny bit of Distress Glaze all over and buffed it with a soft cloth…
I love how simple and quick this technique is….also the fact that it works so great even on cheap photo paper…can’t wait to try it out again soon!!

Once the front panel was adhered to the card base,I added a die cut fence to it…I applied a bit of weathered wood Distress Ink on this die cut for effect…I added two die cut grassy borders as well on which I have applied twisted citron and peeled paint…to create depth,I added some craft foam underneath the top layer of the grassy border…
On a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped,heat embossed and coloured in the images and then cut them out and placed them on my card…I adhered the sentiment as well as some sequins and my card was ready…
