Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde with this week’s fourth sneak peek for January’s Flavor of the Month card kit. This month is “All About the Boys” and if buffalo plaid isn’t a great fit for masculine cards I don’t know what is! I am excited to share today’s card with you and also tell a quick story of some confusion I had and maybe clear it up for you all too in case you have the same question I did. So here is my card which I created using collection two “Buffaloed”.
When I got my kit in the mail and opened and was pouring over all the collections I came to this collection and read the sentiments and thought “What in the world does Buffaloed mean?” I’m getting accustomed to not knowing new songs, new slang, and new actors/actresses. I thought I had new slang to learn but nope turns out it’s just a word I wasn’t familiar with. It means to be intimidated, so the way I used it on this card is saying “Don’t get buffaloed (intimidated). Stand your ground! Have a wild birthday!” Perfect for someone who may be facing a milestone birthday I think.
That’s it for this sneak peek I hope you find some inspiration and maybe a new vocabulary word 😉 . Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to check out this card. Don’t forget it’s sneak peek week so check out the other peeks from previous days and come back tomorrow for the last one before the big reveal!
I made an A2 size card or 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 inches, I cut a panel to 5 1/4 X 4 inches for the scene. I made some masks for the images, and I stamped and masked as I went, using Momento Tuxedo Black Ink for stamping the images I was going to color.
I drew in lines for the cabana, horizon, and beach with a pencil before I started ink blending and then colored the images. After I finish coloring and blending I stamped and embossed the sentiment. I added the glossy accents, the Sparkle Pen for the reflection of the sunset on the water. After it dried I adhered the panel to the card base and used a black Zig Marker to outline the wires on the string lights.
I then stamped the Fairy House with a Copic friendly ink and colored the image with Copic markers. I fussy cut the image and added it to my card with foam adhesive. I chose a sentiment from the stamp set and stamped that to the upper left from the house.
It’sJessand I’m back with a second project featuring the adorable stand along release from Scrapping for Less. I love today’s project – maybe even more than my first one! Let’s get started.
I grabbed a few Distress Oxide ink pads and started on my blending. I like to start with my lightest color and blend over the entire area first. Then I go in with my next darker color and blend just slightly less area than with the first color. I keep doing this as I move to each darker color and the end result is a really cool gradient effect with the colors.
After my ink blending was done, I grabbed a sparkle pen from Spectrum Noir and tapped the barrel to get some of that gorgeous clear sparkle to plop right onto my panel. Since the Distress Oxides react with water, I got a really cool effect with this technique.
I set my panel aside to dry and moved on to coloring. I chose to use alcohol markers here (the Spectrum Noir Classique line), but you can use whatever method you’re most comfortable with. Once your coloring is done, you’re ready for a sentiment.
I decided to do some ‘stamp surgery’ as I’ve heard it called. I wanted a more long and narrow sentiment rather than a stacked one, so I cut apart the two lines of text ‘fairy blessings’ and ‘coming your way!’ Then, I used my Mini MISTI to line them up in a straight line across and stamp them onto black cardstock with Embossing Ink. I poured on some white embossing powder, tapped off the excess, and melted the powder with my heat tool.
I adhered my sentiment across the top section of my card and then mounted the card panel on a white A2 sized card base. I’m absolutely in love with how this one turned out. Be sure to let me know what you think about it by leaving a comment!
Hello there crafty friends! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with a sweet little copic colored scene created using the cute Winter Fairy House stamp set from Scrapping for Less!! I am loving this adorable fairy cottage… it looks so cozy!
I knew that I wanted to create a little snowy scene with the cottage from the Winter Fairy House stamp set and the trees from the Winter Fairies stamp set. They work perfectly together!! I stamped the cottage on a card front of white card stock measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″. I then stamped the cottage and trees on another piece of white card stock and colored them with the following copic markers:
Once all the trees and the cottage were colored, I fussy cut them and cleaned up the edges with a Memento tuxedo black marker. I even cut apart a pair of trees giving me more options in creating my scene. I then set the images aside and grabbed the card front that I had previously stamped the cottage on. I wanted to create a snowy scene but still have a lot of white left on the card… since I was going to basically paper piece the cottage I was able to color over the image on the card front but still have an idea of placement for all of the images.
I started by drawing a light line of blue with the lightest blue copic marker across the card front to divide the sky and the snow. I then colored the sky by just flicking my markers upwards working from lightest to darkest blue until I was happy with the blend. I then added just a little bit of shadow with a light gray copic marker for all of my snow. I placed the trees in the areas that I planned to adhere them and colored the shadows for those, as well.
I adhered all of the elements for my scene using a liquid glue and then adhered the entire panel to a dark purple card base… I think this turned out really cute! To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of white card stock and mat it on black card stock. I adhered it to the card and decided this one was done. I just love how cozy this little scene feels!
Hello, it’s Stacy from Craftaholicmomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a wood slice ornament featuring stamps from the new exclusive Winter Fairy Collection.
I recently ordered more wood slices from Amazon. This time I purchased them a little bit bigger than the ones I used for my Christmas ornaments. Those were 2.75″-3″ in size, the ones I just got are 3.75″-4″.
I stamped the fairy and trees from the Winter Fairies stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then colored the images with my Ohuhu alcohol markers. You could use any alcohol marker or colored pencil to color these in.
I used Nuvo Glitter Accents in Fresh Snowfall to put some dimension on her hat and ground. Nuvo Crystal Glaze added the perfect shine to the star wand. And lastly I added Nuvo Clear Glitter Glaze marker to her wings.
Next I felt she needed a decorative box to put her in. So I took two sheets of the Winter in Pink 6×6 paper and made a box.
For the bottom I scored the sheet at 1″ on all for sides, snipped the corners and taped the edges together with score tape. For the top I cut down the sheet to 5″ square and scored on all four sides at 1/2″ and assembled it the same way. I decorated the top with a triangle scrap I had left over from my Banner I did last week and a white paper doily from Doodlebug. Tying a sheer white ribbon around the box completed my project.
