Kind Flowers

December 18, 2017

My Simon Says Stamp November 2017 Card Kit was lost in the mail.  Because of this, I haven’t been able to use it as much as I would have liked yet. But the holiday break is coming, and I hope to really play with it then.

Blue Card

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I wanted to dry adding white embossing over a color pencil colored image. Once I had the stamp aligned in my MISTI, I decided to make two cards with slightly different colors.

I stamped the floral image on two strips of light grey paper. I used colored pencils to color in both images. Then I re-stamped the images with Versa Mark ink and white heat embossed them. I didn’t do a great job with the embossing, but the overall look is cool.

I created two card bases next; one blue and one purple. I used white pigment ink to stamp the individual floral images all over the card bases.

Then, I got out the die machine. I added some stitching to the edges of each grey panel. I also cut some scalloped borders for each card.

I stamped the rest of the sentiments with gray ink on small strips of white card stock. I adhered these strips to the stamped panels using foam tape.

Lastly, I adhered all the layers to the card bases.

Santa Card

Christmas Tags 3.19

December 17, 2017

I combined a few Lawn Fawn stamp sets to create these panoramic tags. Santa is going to put them on my kiddos’ gifts this year. I love how I was able to create a large scene across 6 tags.

Details

Size:  2 x 3 inch tags

Extra Details:  I began these tags by cutting some water color paper into 2 x 3 inch tags. I created a mask for the reindeer and stamped pairs of reindeer on four of the tags. I stamped a single reindeer on one tag. I stamped the sled on the last tag. I used partial stamping to make the sled longer and I added a pile of gifts. The Santa I had in my stash of pre-colored and cut images.  Using first and second generation stamping I added trees to the bottom of the tags.  I used white embossing powder to add a few snowflakes to each tag also.

I used colored pencils to color in all of the images. I used Distress Inks to add the blue to the backgrounds. I added some splatters of ink for interest. I used some red ink and more masking to add the reins that “connect” all of the reindeer.

I felt that the tags were missing something, so I stamped, colored and cut out the Merry Christmas labels. I adhered those with liquid glue. I added some red puffy paint to Rudolph’s nose.

I used a wide red ribbon to finish off the tags.

Christmas Tags 3.18

December 17, 2017

I love the penguins from Lawn Fawn’s Here We Go a Waddling. I used them on a set of Christmas Tags.

25299363_10209139132910129_6224554687316956409_n

Details

Extra Details: I began with a half sheet of white card stock that I scored a grid pattern into. I used the grid pattern to help me stamp the Fa La La La La background. I used three shades of green ink, a red ink and a gray ink. Once the stamping was complete, I die cut 5 tags from the panel.

On a separate piece of white card stock, I stamped and colored the penguin carolers. I used colored pencils. I fussy cut out each group of penguins leaving a small white border.

I adhered the penguins to the tags using strong double sided tape. Lastly, I added some green twine and the tags were complete.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Here We Go a Waddling, and Sally’s ABCs

Inside of Card

Details

Size:  Horizontal side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card by cutting two 4.25 x 5.5 inch panels from some water color paper. One panel is for the front of the card; the other is for the inside.

I used a stitched hillside border to cut the front panel. From the top part of the panel, I also die cut some stitched circles. I used versa mark ink and white embossing powder to add stars or music notes. I used Distress Inks as water colors to create my night sky. The embossed resist worked beautifully.  I added a light blue was to the bottom of the panel for interest. Once dry, I adhered all of the pieces to a white card base.

For the inside panel, I used the Ellen Hudson Zipper Panel Die to create the hidden chamber. I adhered this panel to the inside of the card base.

On a scrap of water color paper, I stamped the penguins in Versa Fine ink and clear embossed them. I used the same Distress Inks to water color them in. Once dry, I fussy cut everything out leaving a small white border. I adhered the penguins to my card using liquid glue. I used a mini action wobble on the penguin playing the guitar.

Lastly, I added the sentiments and a few music notes in black ink.
