Happy World Card Making Day 2017

Hello and Happy World Card Making Day!!

I'll be crafting later today, first I have a few errands to run! I had a little downtime this week and did some crafting for just fun and did some watercoloring stamping!! I've been doing a lot of coloring with my SN markers and I was in the mood to play with my SN Aqua markers!!

I trimmed some Crafter's Companion's watercolor paper to fit a card base. Then I pulled out Sheena Douglass's Hummingbird stamp and a few Aqua Markers. I used Magenta, Sea Green, Aquamarine, Gold, Yellow, Scarlet, and Black.

I used the markers to color the hummingbird, using all the colors but black. I spritzed the stamp a couple of times with water and then stamped. There is plenty of ink on the stamp, so I just moved the hummingbird around and stamped again.

The watercolors blended together fabulously! I continued to do this until the panel was filled. With the fine tip end of the black marker, I added in the eyes! So nice to have that fine tip for the details!!

Next, I colored the sentiment with the black aqua marker and stamped it without water because I didn't want it to run too bad. It did just a touch and that's what I wanted! Water would have made it unreadable!

I added the stamped panel to a white card base and then added the sentiment strip with foam tape. Last I added a few black and grey sequins for a little sparkle.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Art Impression Challenge #218 - Jiggle A Little

Hello!

It's the second week of Art Impressions Challenge #218 - Jiggle A Little!! AI also has a great NEW release of a new product called Wiggle Wobbles! My card features the Flamingo Wiggle Wobble!
Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Art Impressions
I started by stamping the images in the set. You do have to stamp the leg and wing twice! Then I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color it. I used: AB1, AB2, AB3, DP1, DP2, DP3, EB3, EB5, FS4, FS9, MG2, MG3, MG5, TN2. With the matching dies that come with the set I die cut all the pieces out.

The set includes mini brads to get you started, but you can buy a big pack on AI's website! I just assembled flamingo with the brads and she is ready to go!!

I pulled out some grey cardstock and made a card base with it. From a Christmas pattern paper pad, I found some cool non-Christmas patterns and cut them with a stitched rectangle. I adhered the pink to the front and the cool green to the inside of the card. With a circle die, I cut a window through the front of the card.

I stamped the sentiment on a piece of green pattern paper and trimmed it up and added it below the window on the front of the card. Last I added the Flamingo to the inside of the card with a mini action wobble (more wobbles can be purchased on AI's website!). And wa-la an adorable wobble with awesome action!!

Old Goats Club

Hello!!

I'm on the Art Impressions blog with another card using the Old Goat set. This one is an easy card to make so it would be perfect to do this up as a card set!!

I started by stamping the jumping goat on watercolor cardstock. Then I colored it with my Spectrum Noir Markers:   AG1, AG3, CT1, CT4, CR7, MB1, MB3, MB4.  I fussy cut him out, next.

For a sentiment, I die cut a speech bubble and then stamped the Welcome to the Old Goats Club sentiment.

The background was super easy!! Washi tape!! This roll has been running around my desk just waiting for me to use it!! I lined up a white card base on my mat and then added the stripes of washi tape.

To finish it up I added the sentiment and the goat with foam tape. To make this a card set, just stamp and color images all at once. Then die cut and stamp the sentiment bubble, add the washi tape and the image and sentiment to each card. 

Thanks for stopping by!!

I Got You Cake

Hello!!

I'm on the Art Impressions blog today! AI has some hilarious stamps and the Old Goat Stamp Set is no exception! I just love the sentiment on my card today! So funny and goes so well with the goat on the cake image!! 

I started by picking out some pattern paper. That way when I color my image I can match the colors if at all possible!! I picked a colorful polka dot pattern from Fancy Pants, Memories Captured pad. Then I used a stitched rectangle to cut it out. 


Next, I stamped the goat image on some white cardstock and then used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color it. I used: AB1, AB2, AB3, AP1, AP2, AP3, BO2, BO3, BO4, DP2, DP3, DP4, EB5, EB6, EB7, GT2, GT3. Then I used a rounded stitched rectangle to die cut the image and did the same thing after stamping the sentiment. 


I found some yellow backers twine that matched and wrapped it around my patterned panel and tied it in a bow. I adhered it to a white card base. Then I added the stamped image with foam tape and the sentiment off to the left of it, trimming off the overhand along the bottom. 


Thanks for stopping by!!

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hello!!

Today is the last day for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!! I'm just squeaking in with a second card! At the end of today I will have taken two exams, yesterday two exams, so yeah! A crafty break for me tomorrow and its back to studying getting ready for one exam late next week!! But enough about exams!!

I've been seeing a few people using Ranger's Perfect Pearls and I have been really wanting to use them as I have 4 colors. And this is the perfect time to use them as they are very fall colors!!

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Simon Says Stamp

So I cut a stitched rectangle from black cardstock. With Ranger's Perfect Medium I stamped the solid leaves from Penny Black Foliage Fancy stamp set. I stamped them all over the cardstock. Then I used the different Perfect Pearls colors and added them to the watermark leaves. I used Perfect Copper, Gold, Bronze, and Pearl.

After whipping off the extra powder I stamped the outline leaves in Perfect Medium on each leaf. Then I added black embossing powder and heated it up. I went back in with a little bit of each of the pearls to do a little touch-up. It's hard to see in the photos but I really love the shine the powder gives off and the shine of the embossing powder.

With Simon Says Stamp Coffee Cup dies I cut a cup from Kraft cardstock. I used some distress ink to darken the cup and color the heart red. From the Kraft cardstock I cut a strip and stamped the sentiment Friendship Has its Perks from Simon Says Stamp What's Brewing stamp set.

I wrapped some black twine around the leaf panel and then added the sentiment strip. I tucked it the coffee cup behind the twine and then added the panel to a Kraft card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
