Spotlight Cupcakes

May 31, 2015

When I updated my blog in February 2016, I lost all the posting I had already done. I am doing my best to put the posts back up but I do not remember all the details for each card.  Unfortunately, the details for this project may be a bit scarce.

I just bought some very cheap water color pencils and wanted to play with them. I had also recently seen a video about spot light coloring, so I figured that would be a good technique to play with the water colored pencils.

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started with a panel of water color paper. I stamped an all over pattern using cupcakes, cherries, and hearts. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink, which did smudge when I added water. I lightly traced a circle using a jar lid. I added the water color pencil and used a water brush to blend it out.

I kept the color to the inside of the circle. I used the black water colored pencil to add a bit of color and some shadows to the rest of the images.

Once dry, I adhered the water color panel to a black card base. I also added a sentiment banner. I inked the edges of the banner to help it stand out.

Oh my first attempt at ink blending. I only owned one color of distress ink, no ink blending tools, no dies, and only post it notes to use as masking paper.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started with a purple card base and stamped Starry Backdrops in a darker purple ink on it. I stamped the clouds and rainbow on a separate piece of white cardstock. I used the rock n roll technique to gets lots of colors on my rainbow arcs. I added a sentiment and then hand cut a banner shape. I felt the card need a little something more, so I hand cut another banner shape from a piece of patterned paper. After adhering everything together, the card was finished.

Bakery Tri-Fold

When I updated my blog in February 2016, I lost all the posting I had already done. I am doing my best to put the posts back up but I do not remember all the details for each card.  Unfortunately, the details for this project may be a bit scarce.

Art Impressions had just released one of their Tri-Fold stamps sets that can be used to create 3 panel cards, and I wanted to try to make something similar with the stamped I owned.

Details

Size:  Vertical tri-fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I used one piece of paper to make this card, which is why the front panel does not cover the whole card width. I preplanned which images would be on each layer. I tried to keep the taller images on the back layer. I used masking to create each of the scenes on the panels. After everything was stamped, I carefully fussy cut the front two panels. I colored everything with colored pencils.

Bridal Shower Floral Nametags

When I updated my blog in February 2016, I lost all the posting I had already done. I am doing my best to put the posts back up but I do not remember all the details for each card.  Unfortunately, the details for this project may be a bit scarce.

These nametags are for the bridal shower that started the whole crazy stamping thing. After I made all the invitations and thank you cards, I knew I wanted the decorations to match as well. I also made nametags for the important people who would be at the shower.

Details

Extra Details: I started by cutting the scalloped circles from some patterned paper. I free handed a flower design for these. I cut the white circles on my Cricut machine. I added the lettering first in black ink. I filled in the empty spaces with florals that matched all of the other decorations. I adhered the white circles to pieces of patterned paper. I used a large safety pin on some duct tape so that people could wear them at the shower.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started with a black card base. I stamped Starry Backdrops all over it in silver pigment ink and set it aside to dry. I also added one gold star to be my lucky star.

While the card base was drying, I made my sentiment banner. I laid out my custom sentiment with Riley’s ABCs and stamped it in black ink. I added a few stars in gold and silver. I cut a fishtail shape on the bottom of the banner and adhered it to the card base.
