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 this  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…

Love Ya – Time Out Challenge #102

I kept looking at the inspiration picture provided in the latest challenge at Time Out Challenges and could’t make up my mind whether I wanted to use black and white stripes on my card or white and gold (the seat and one of the cushions)…so I decided to use both…

This is the challenge photo and as you can see,I took a whole lot of inspiration from it..
I started by creating the front panel for my card…I cut the black and white striped paper at an angle and adhered it onto a piece of black cardstock…I then used a pierced rectangle die to neaten up the panel and cut off the excess…I adhered this panel onto a white card base…

On a separate piece of white cardstock,I adhered white and gold lace strips that I die cut using the Lawn Fawn lacy borders die and then used a large heart die to cut out the main element of my card…I adhered this heart on the card front using some black craft foam underneath…

And finally,I stamped and gold heat embossed the sentiment on white cardstock and die cut it using the coordinating die…I also die cut the same four times from black cardstock and adhered it under the main sentiment…this was just to make sure that the sentiment doesn’t merge with the white and gold heart in the background…I placed a small red die cut heart above the sentiment and my card was ready…

Watercolour Background Quick Cards

Today I’m sharing two cards that were pretty quick to make…I loved making a watercoloured background for one of my cards earlier and wanted to make some more…

For all the fairy stamps I have and love(and keep buying..lol),I didn’t have many mushroom stamps to build a scene with so I got this one from Hero Arts called You’re A Fungi…I like all the different images on it as well as the pun-ny sentiments in the set…

I started with a watercolour cardstock top layer and painted a random ‘pattern’ using Kurutake Gansai Tambi watercolours,making sure to leave a bit of white area around the edges…once the paint was dry,I used nesting hearts dies to emboss this top layer….I stamped the sentiment and a snail using brown dye ink and adhered this top layer to a Kraft cardtstock card base…

I stamped,coloured in and cut out all the mushroom images and placed them on the card…I have used craft foam under a few of the mushrooms add a bit of dimension to the scene…finally,I added a few sequins and a die cut red heart

For my second card,I created the top layer the same way as my first card and die cut it before adhering it to the card front using some craft foam underneath..I chose a dark blue card base for this card…I then stamped the sentiment on a smaller die cut label and adhered it to the card front…

I die cut the crescent moon and layered it with some craft foam as well and then die cut a few stars from silver foil cardstock and adhered them all to the card…

I have used my Spectrum Noir sparkle pen on both  these cards to add a bit of shine to a few of the elements like the mushrooms and the moon…
