Smile Crocodile

I have finally been able to try one of the techniques shared by Jennifer McGuire for stamping on Kraft cardstock and getting brighter results from coloured ink…the trick it seems is to stamp first with white pigment ink and then with the coloured ink…and any kind of a stamping tool like the MISTI or TH stamp platform would definitely come in handy…although for my card I have used a stencil not stamps but the process is the same…

After cutting the front panel to size, I used a circle stencil with an inking sponge to apply unicorn white ink and then various Oxide inks to create my pattern…once completely dry,I stamped the chevron grid background stamp covering this panel with watermark ink and then heat embossed it with a super fine pearl embossing powder…I adhered this panel to a Kraft cardstock card base and started on the other elements of my card..

I stamped the cute koala and crocodile on a piece of white cardstock and coloured them in using Zig  pens and a water brush…I die cut them using the coordinating dies and set them aside….I die cut the word smile from white cardstock ) which I coloured blue using salty ocean Oxide ink and two more time from Kraft cardstock and layered them before adhering to the card stock..I stamped the word ‘crocodile’ on a white label and placed it below the large word…

I adhered the koala and crocodile images using some foam squares and also applied some Nuvo gloss to these images for a bit of shine and dimension…to embellish my card I have added some white dot sequins…

Something To Make You Smile

When I made a shaker card few days ago,I was left with the die cut word ‘smile’…had I kept the die cut somewhere ‘safe’ to ‘use later’, I really would’ve never got around to using it…and it was perfect for this card so I was quite happy I was able to use the die cut word…

Firstly,I stamped the dotted background using Distress Oxide inks and the polka dot turnabout stamp…I have used blueprint sketch,evergreen bough,picked raspberry and seedless preserves shades here…I then die cut the front panel from the stamped piece using a stitched rectangle die and adhered it to a pink textured card base..

On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped and gold heat embossed the flowers and leaf images and coloured them in using a water brush and the same colours of Oxide inks that I used to create the polka dot pattern…I die cut them using the coordinating dies and placed them on my card,making sure to leave the right amount of space for the sentiment…
I sponged in some mermaid lagoon and blueprint sketch Oxide inks on the die cut word before adhering it near the base of the panel…I stamped the rest of the sentiment on a white die cut banner and adhered it above the die cut word…

I applied some shimmer to the flowers and added some clear sequins to embellish it…

Alcohol Ink Background Birthday Card

My card today has my very first alcohol ink background….after my successful previous effort with my alcohol marker reinker,I decided to get some ‘proper’ alcohol inks…and my goodness how addictive they are…there were so many colours to choose from but I chose to start my collection with some bright colours – no surprises there….

After my background was ready and completely dry,I stamped and gold heat embossed the large doily image…I then used a dotted rectangle die to die cut the top layer and adhered it to a plain white card base…
I die the word smile from light pink card cardstock as well as pink craft foam and adhered it to the card front…I stamped the rest of my sentiment on a die cut banner from the same light pink cardstock and adhered it just below..
On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped and coloured in the little fairy image and cut it out before placing it on my card…and finally to embellish my card I have used some light pink sequins…

I’m Thinking Of You Today – Spotlight Stamping For TFC#16

The card I’m sharing today is my take on ‘Spotlight Stamping’ which is the challenge for January at The Flower Challenge blog…I created three windows on the front panel through which you can see the coloured in images…the images on this top panel are not coloured in and so the focus goes straight to the gold coloured flowers inside the windows..

I started by laying out my stamps on my MISTI so that they stamp just a half panel(except the large flower in the center)…this way I could rotate the panel 180 degrees and stamp the images on the other half easily…I created two panels this way….one stamped with black ink and the second one with picked raspberry Distress Oxide ink…

I then used double pierced rectangle dies to create the three windows as well as the border of the front panel…on the base panel,I coloured in the flower images using gold watercolor and added some gold dots as well as a few pink die cut centers for the flowers….I then adhered this panel to a white card base…

On the back of the top panel,I added some adhesive foam strips and then placed it on the card front…I stamped the sentiment on a large die cut banner and used some more adhesive foam to place it on the card front…they don’t make much of a difference but I have added some clear Nuvo drops to embellish my card…

Peace Begins With A Smile

The moodboard for the November Challenge at Scrapbook Boutique was quite inspiring…at first I wanted to make Christmas cards using the moodboard’s red and white theme but then other ideas popped up in my head and I went with that instead and have made two cards as my entry for this challenge..

This is the moodboard for the challenge…and if you live in Australia or New Zealand,you can participate in this challenge…the Scrapbook Boutique blog has monthly challenges which I love to participate in…
For my first card,I first created the elements for the front panel using the Altenew Build-a-flower Rose set…I only stamped one layer of the rose using candied apple Distress Oxide ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder before die cutting it..I did the same with the little flower bunch…
I stamped one layer of the leaf stamp with Versamark ink and heat embossed that with white embossing powder and die cut it with the coordinating die…I die cut another piece for layering..I also stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on a thin white strip…
Now that all the elements were ready,I cut a white front panel and splattered some red watercolour on it and let it dry before adhering it to a textured red card base…
I added  all the elements to the card front and used craft foam under a few die cuts and the sentiment label for dimension..and finally I used some red Nuvo drops to embellish my card…

I am also entering this card in The Flower Challenge #14 where the theme for this month is CAS

For my second card,I die cut a red front panel using the large stitched rectangle die and adhered it to a white card base…then on a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped the plaid background using candied apple Distress Oxide ink and die cut a smaller panel to layer above the red panel…
I then die cut three fringe scallop borders from white cardstock and adhered them to the smaller panel…I die cut the word ‘smile from white cardstock as well and layered it with red craft foam die cut before adhering it near the base of this panel…I stamped the rest of the sentiment on a white label and layered that with red craft foam as well before placing it under the large word…
Red Nuvo drops were the perfect embellishments for this card and I just added three of them to finish my card..
