Hello crafty friends! Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde with a card I have been wanting to make for soooo long! Now with a bit more time on my hands thanks to Social Distancing I have gotten the chance. When I first saw this stamp I literally gasped because I thought it was so beautiful! So here are the two card I made with the Wonderful World by Gina K Designs:
Using VersaFine ink I stamped the image and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then colored in the image using Zig Clean Real Brush Markers and a water pen. Heat embossed the sentiment on velum paper. I tried several different colors of embossing powder and this was the easiest to read. Unfortunately it does not show up well in the pic, it reads: “The World Is A Better Place Because You’re In It”
Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde with some further inspiration created using February’s card kit. I am in love with the papers, the ephemera and I CANNOT STOP EMBOSSING THESE IMAGES! I had to literally make myself get up from my desk and stop making cards because it was time to get dinner started. Several hours had gone by and I was so busy creating I didn’t realize how much time had passed. So here they are I hope you enjoy them and I hope you grab yours before they are gone!
This gal is just stunning, whether inked, embossed or colored this stamp set is incredibly versatile. The paper is beautiful and feminine and she looks stunning in gold!
Shaker cards are fun and the paper in this collection takes the cupcake! I wanted to show off the paper and could not bear to cover it up and I thought creating a shaker card with this scalloped frame would be a great way to do that. Using Nuvo drops I added a little sparkle and interest to the wood icon cupcake, teapot and cup of tea. Filled the shaker with sequins of colors that are in the paper.
Thank you so much for taking a little time today to come see what we are up to over here at SFL. We are having so much fun with this kit over here on the blog, if you haven’t seen it already take a peek at past blog posts for even more inspiration. My fellow design teammates are incredibly talented!
So glad you stopped in for a glimpse at Sunny Studio Stamps “A Good Egg” stamp set. This stamp set packs a punch! There are just so many great images to be used to make cards. Great stamp set for Easter but also friendship cards or just telling someone you love what a good egg they are.
Thank you for stopping by to check out the blog. I hope you have some time to take a look around at previous posts as well there are some beautiful cards and projects on the blog.
Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde sharing some items from Sunny Studio Stamps’ new release. This card relies heavily on the Spring Sunburst paper pad as that is the main background. The sunburst is just so happy!
So glad you stopped by the blog today. Today’s card was created with Sunny Studio Stamps Cheerful Daisies stamp set. Looking at the stamp set alone makes me happy and then when you add color WOW!
This stamp set is what I like to refer to as a stampy stamp. A stampy stamp is a stamp set in which one must stamp in colored ink to create the image of the stamp. Gotta tell you these type of stamps are a tinge on the intimidating side to me. Now I will say that having a stamp tool is fantastic and makes it so much easier than trying to line it up free hand but Sunny Studio has also taken the extra step and beside each stamp it tells you what to use next, which I love!
The ink I used is Lawn Fawn premium dye ink. I took a lot more pics than I typically take because I wanted you to be able to see how it looks because if this becomes your first stampy stamp I wanted you all to see that it looks different. So no more chit chat. Here’s the pics…
When stamping with stampy stamps go lighter to darker and know that you may have to stamp the image several times to get full coverage. This is a beautiful stamp set and it made such a happy card! Here it is again…
I heat embossed the sentiment in white puff embossing powder, I knew I wanted it to be thick looking.
Thanks again for stopping by and spending your time with us today!
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!
Hi crafty friends! Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde with a fairy fun shaker card to show off SFL’s new release! (Sorry I couldn’t help myself.) Shaker cards are fun, versatile and add a little something out of your ordinary everyday card. Over the years I have watched many videos of how to make them, different methods and tricks. Every time I sit down to make a shaker card I feel like I’m learning for the first time. I will say this card might be the one I had the least amount of trouble with but please note the trouble is mine not in the technique itself. It’s actually a very simple process I just struggle with it for some strange reason. I have to take each step slowly so that I don’t glue the wrong pieces together. I was so happy with the way it turned out!
Here’s a quick run down of what I did:
stamped sentiment on the clear acetate sheet (after hitting it with an Embossing Magic Pad so the embossing powder wouldn’t cling where I didn’t want it to) with VersaFine black onyx ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder
the image from Winter Fairies by SFLwas stamped with Memento black ink then was colored with Prismacolor pencils & maybe Derwent inktense pencils (I keep them in the same case and when I’m coloring I am usually just looking for the right color not which brand)
fussy cutted out the image and then went around the edges with a Memento marker in black ink (gives it a finished look even if your edges are a little rough)
Above I’ve included the links on the pics for the individual products or you can click the pic below where I’ve included the link to get the bundle.
Thank you so much for stopping in today and checking out the blog! Take some time and look around the other design team members have done some really great work with this release. No such thing as too much inspiration right?
