Hey there crafty friend! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with a couple sweet CAS cards using the fabulous City Streets and Country Roads card kit and stencils!! I layered a shape stencil with the city skyline portion of the stencil included in the Banana Split subscription to create these fun cards.
My first card was created using the Scalloped Circle Masquerade stencil from Heffy Doodle. I started by blending Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink over the top portion of the scalloped circle. I then blended some Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink on the bottom portion. Then I placed the city skyline stencil over top of the scalloped circle stencil and secured it with some purple tape. I also covered the words underneath the skyline on the stencil with some purple tape. I then blended some Black Soot Distress Oxide ink lightly over the stencil for my base color and using a post it note I added some dimension to the buildings blending from the bottom right edge and up.
I stamped the sentiment from the Your Best Life stamp set from Collection Two of the card kit with Memento Tuxedo black ink. And then I stamped the girl from the same stamp set onto a scrap of white card stock. If you remember my card from the reveal a couple of weeks ago, I’ve used a very similar color combo on this girl. And I’ll have a video of my coloring to share with you tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s a list of the Copic markers that I used to color this image:
And I did the same layered stencils technique to make my second card. This time I used the super girl stamp from the Super Host stamp set in Collection One along with a star stencil that I created myself by die cutting a piece of card stock with a star die.
I used the following Copic markers to color up this sweet super girl:
Here’s a video showing the Layered Stencils technique I used for these adorable CAS cards!
I sure hope you’ve enjoyed the cards I’ve shared today! The April 2020 card kit is sold out but you can subscribe now so you don’t miss out on the May 2020 card kit… and let me just tell you, you DO NOT want to miss this next kit!!! It’s SO adorable… just saying!!
This time I wanted to piece the die back together using different papers… just like a puzzle! I don’t know about you, but I love puzzles and piecing these die pieces back together was so much fun! And I have all kinds of pieces leftover to make more cards with!! I started by die cutting Chocolate card stock for my die base. I adhered that to a piece of copy paper and then fussy cut it out.
Then I die cut the Flowery Camera from three different papers in the Country Roads paper pack and adhered all of those pieces to my Chocolate camera. Isn’t it just so pretty?! I love how it turned out! Now if you didn’t snatch up one of these fabulous card kits while you had the chance, be sure to check out the A La Carte section of the website… you can still purchase the gorgeous papers and some of the other products in the kit!!
Did you see the little extra glittery goodness I added to my card? These gorgeous glittery papers by DCWV are available in the A La Carte section of the shop AND they make such a great addition to the card kit!! I really loved the Mojo Monday sketch that the design team used for our hop and reveal so I decided to use it again for this card. You can check out the sketches that the DT used here —> April 2020 Sketch Sheet. I trimmed all of my paper layers and adhered them to a Chocolate card stock card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″. I wrapped a piece of Natural Twine from the Country Roads Collection around those paper layers and tied off a knot. I then adhered the panel to a white card base from my stash. I popped up the stitched arch that I die cut from the text papers and then adhered the die cut Flowery Camera directly to it.
I think it turned out lovely!! I decided not to add a sentiment at this point because I’m just not sure what occasion I’m going to use it for. Do you ever do that with your cards?
I hope I’ve inspired you to pull out your City Streets and Country Roads card kit and get some inky time in… or maybe some paper piecing time since I didn’t actually get inky with this card! Lol!
