Red Water Color Card Set

January 17, 2018

This is a set of cards I made as a Christmas gift. The sentiment is actually the negative piece left over for the Purple Water Color Card Set.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 cards

Extra Details:  I began these cards by created some card bases from water color paper. I used an acrylic block and some pink and red Distress Inks to create the backgrounds. I used the ink smooshing techniques. I used a large block which is why the ink smooshing isn’t very consistent from card to card.

The sentiments are the negative die cuts from a previous project. Once the ink was dry, I was able to adhere the white sentiment rectangles onto the card base.

Purple Watercolor Card Set

January 17, 2018

This is a set of cards I made as a gift for Christmas. The ink on these cards didn’t smoosh as well as I expected. However, they still turned out beautiful.

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began these cards by creating A2 card bases from some water color paper. I used an acrylic block and purple Distress Inks to create all of the backgrounds. I used the smooshing technique.

While the ink was drying, I die cut the letters for Thanks from a scrap of water color paper. I stamped the outlines of the letter on the die cuts in grey ink.

Once the backgrounds were dry, I adhered the die cut letter to the card front in a rectangle–ish shape.

January 16, 2018

This is a set of thank you cards I made as a Christmas gift for a friend. This idea worked out so well.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began these cards by creating some card bases from smooth white card stock. Then, I die cut a Scripty thanks die from some Post – It Notes. I used these as masks. I placed one mask on each card front. Then I began stamping.

I used seven different colors of ink to create my rainbow. I overlapped the colors just a little to make the word really easy to read. I also turned the stamp 90 degrees when I changed colors.

Once I was done stamping, I removed the masks and had these beautiful cards.

Stamps Used: Simon Says Stamps’ Brushstroke Messages

Dies Used: Lawn Fawn’s Scripty Thanks

Ink: Lawn Fawn Inks in Lobster, Pink Flamingo, Carrot, Sunflower, Freshly Cut Grass, Merman, and Sugarplum

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began these cards by making card bases from some water color paper. I used a small square acrylic block and six different green shade of Distress Ink to create the backgrounds. I smooshed the ink on the block, sprayed it with water and press it down on the card front. I let the block sit for about 5 minutes before I removed it to intensify the color.

Once the Distress Ink was dry, I stamped and gold embossed the frames and sentiments.

Mini Sets Thank You Cards

January 15, 2018

After I finished the Sweetest Thanks card set, I realized I was short some cards. I also had two new mini stamp sets I wanted to play with. So I turned those into Thank You cards also.

Kind Flowers in Blues

January 15, 2018

I made a few card sets to give as Christmas gifts this year, but I never got around to blogging them till now. Here is the blue set of cards I made.

26000849_10209210558615727_6093166556857501120_n

Details

Size:  Horizontal side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began these six cards by creating six card bases from some water color paper. Then I used my acrylic blocks to smoosh on some blue Distress inks. I let the ink sit for about five minutes before removing the block to get a more intense color.

Once the ink smooshing was dry, I stamped the image on to the cards. I used Versa Mark ink and Simon Says Stamp’s Steel Navy embossing powder.

Finally, I added the sub sentiment to the cards. I stamp the sentiment on a small strip of water color paper with a grey ink. Then, I adhered the strips with some foam tape.

The recipient love this card set for both its handmade qualities and the really beautiful sentiments.

Brushstroke and Ink Cube Pack Card Set

October 8, 2017

World Card Making Day was so much fun. I watched a ton of inspirational videos on YouTube and created a number of cards also. I also watched Nina-Marie Trapani’s video called Brushstroke Pattern Stamping Featuring Simon Says Stamp Products. I have the Brushstroke Messages stamp set and couldn’t wait to try out some of the ideas Nina-Maria demonstrated. I also just got some of the Lawn Fawn Mini Ink Cube Sets in the mail and wanted to play with those. In the end, I made 8 cards.

025

Card One using Hero Arts Color Layering Rooster Ink set. There was some ink transfer when I switched from the red ink to the yellow ink, but I really like the orangey color that it created.

024

Card two using Lawn Fawn’s Tropical Island Ink Cube Pack. I trimmed the sides of the panel down to allow the grey card base to show on each side.

023

Card Three using Lawn Fawn’s Candy Story Ink Cube Pack. I die cut the bottom edge of the white panel with a stitched cloud border die for interest.

022

Card Four using Lawn Fawn’s Gazebo Ink Cube Pack. I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die before adhering it to a grey card base.

020

Card Six using lawn Fawn’s Pumpkin Patch Ink Cube Pack. I trimmed the panel down and adhered it to a kraft card base.

019

Card Seven using Lawn Fawn’s Tea Party Ink Cube Pack. I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die. I added two smaller layers with some foam tape. I stamped the green ink on the larger layer to create matching paper. Lastly, I added a few sequins for some sparkle.

Card Eight using Lawn Fawn’s Ice Cream Parlor Ink Cube Pack. I added the small dots for some interest.

Cheery and Bright

I just bought the new Lawn Fawn Winter Tiny Tags and couldn’t wait to play with them. I used some adhesive backed glitter paper to create these cards.

Extra Details:  I began by die cutting the ornament from three colors of glitter card stock. I also cut out the star in the center of each ornament for added interest. I adhered the ornaments to three white card bases.

I stamped the stings using Lawn Fawn’s Scripty Sayings stamp set. I added a sentiment to the bottom of each card.

For the finishing touch I added the holographic toppers to each ornament. I die cut those from some old packaging I had saved.

I really love this card set and it was easy to put together,
