Hi Everyone! Luci here with a single layer card using the Brand New Release from SFL “Winter Fairies” and “Fairy House“! How adorable are these sets! I colored the images and created the scene with Copic Markers, and I finished up the card by stamping the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink added a few sequins and you can’t have Fairies without some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen!
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, I stamped and masked as I went, using Momento Tuxedo Black Ink for stamping the images I was going to color. I drew in some hills with a pencil before I started coloring. I colored the panel. Once I finished coloring I adhered the panel to the card base, added a few sequins and used the Sparkle Pen on tops of hills, the roof, the white parts of her hat, and the accents on her dress and shoes.
Hello there crafty friends! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with an adorable wintry New Year’s card!! I just adore these sweet stamps by Heffy Doodle called Prehistoric Pals… so much fun to create a card a little outside-the-box with these characters. I don’t normally think of cavemen and mammoths in the snow, but this was such a fun card to make!
I started with a white piece of card stock that I ran through my big shot with a wonky stitched rectangle die. I set that aside and stamped all the stamps from the set because I wasn’t quite sure which ones I was going to use. I stamped with memento tuxedo black ink and then colored the images in with the following Copic markers:
I fussy cut all of the colored images and cleaned up the edges with the memento tuxedo black marker. When I was coloring the background for this card, I placed the images on the card seeing where I wanted to position every thing. I was then able to add the shadows on the snowy ground. I only used a little bit of shadows so I could keep the card looking more wintry with lots of white.
I adhered the fussy cut images to the card using liquid glue and then adhered the entire piece to a white card base. I added some snow using leftover sequins from a past card kit and also some varying sizes of dots of white gel pen here and there. Don’t they just look so excited for the snow?! I love it!
To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment which is a combination of two sentiment stamps… “Have a Mammoth Day” and “Another Year Boulder”. I was able to mask the sentiments and stamp them pretty easily with my Stamp Platform. My paper shifted just slightly on the Year stamp but I was able to fix it with my memento tuxedo black marker… it just looks a bit more bold ~ almost like it was intentional! This adorable stamp set isn’t in stock anymore, unfortunately, but there are a bunch of other adorable Heffy Doodle stamps in the shop! Check them out here —> Heffy Doodle stamps!
Hello there crafty friends! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with a sweet birthday card for a little one in your life… who doesn’t love a sweet dragon?! I just adore this one from the Dream Come True stamp set by La-La Land Crafts!!
As I mentioned in my blog post last Friday for Scrapping for Less, I played some more with the fun Nuvo Chalk White Stone drops for my card today but this time I painted with the drops. I added a few drops… actually more like blobs… on my Glass Media Mat and then with my paint brush painted over a piece of pink card stock. For my other piece of pink card stock, I added drops directly on the card stock and painted directly on that piece. Both applications of the Stone drops for this technique gave me basically the same results, but I didn’t have to clean up my Glass Media Mat for the latter.
While I let the painted Stone drops dry, I stamped the sweet dragon onto white card stock with Memento tuxedo black ink and colored it in with the following Copic markers ~ B0000, B00, B12, V01, V04, V20. I then fussy cut the dragon and cleaned up the edges with a Memento tuxedo black marker. A little tip for those of you trying this trick for the first time… be sure to color the edges of the fussy cut image from behind so if the marker slips it marks up the back of your image rather than the nicely colored front.
I set the dragon aside and die cut the now dry Stone drop painted card stock with the Puffy Clouds die from My Favorite Things.
The clouds turned out just as I had hoped… so much fun texture and dimension!! I love them!
I then trimmed down my white card front to 4-1/8 x 5-3/8″ and die cut it with a stitched in and out circle die. I laid that on top of my white card base and traced around the inner circle lightly with a pencil. Now I had an idea of where to blend my Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink for my clouds in the background. I blended the clouds over the Mini Cloud Edges stencil from My Favorite Things being careful to stay within the traced circle… just extra careful so my white edges on the card base stayed white. I then erased the pencil marks on the card base and adhered a few of the pink Stone drop painted clouds. I adhered the top white card stock piece with the die cut stitched circle and then adhered the remaining clouds. I popped up the sweet dragon using foam tape and stamped the Make a Wish sentiment using my Stamp Platform to ensure I got a nice crisp inking!
And then I got to thinking it would be fun to add some drops but not the Stone drops… so I grabbed the Sea Breeze Jewel drops and Fairy Wings Dream drops and went a little crazy! But I really love the different looks of all of the drops on this card! I sure hope that I’ve inspired you to think out of the box a bit and use those Nuvo drops for other techniques!
Hello there crafty friends! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with more fabulous inspiration using the September 2019 Flavor of the Month Card Kit called Fall is Coming!! I’m so excited to share the cards that I created! I had so much fun with this card kit! Once I started creating, I just couldn’t stop!! Lol! I have 8 cards to share with you all today! I’m going to warn you now, this post is a tad bit long, but I hope you’ll stick around and check out all my cards! Let’s get to it!
If you’ve followed my card making journey you’ll know that I adore making Halloween cards, so it’s no surprise I made a couple extras with the fabulous Frightful Cuties Collection!!! Love it!! I almost used up all the gorgeous papers in the kit… too cute!
My first card is from Collection Two: Cozy Fall. This collection is so beautiful! The papers are absolutely stunning! If I get a chance, I do have plans to make another card or two with this collection… but for today’s card, I kept the design kind of simple. I instantly fell in love with the gorgeous rose papers… the colors are amazing so I HAD to use it for my card and I also wanted to use the mug… well, because I love my coffee!! I used the following Copic markers to color the mug and flowers:
Mug ~ R000, R20, R39, R85
Flowers/leaves ~ YG0000, YG01, YG03, YR15, YR21
I fussy cut the mug and went around the edges with my Memento tuxedo black marker to clean it up a bit. I then set it aside and started die cutting the Autumn Blessings die from the Banana Split subscription. I die cut it three times and then adhered the die cuts together. A little tip for this intricate die… it’s not one piece, it cuts into four separate sections. I used Press n’ Seal wrap to hold my die cut pieces in place. I then added the liquid glue and placed the die cut layers on each other. It was a little time consuming but so worth it!! I love this fabulous font of this sentiment! It’s perfect paired up with these gorgeous papers! To finish off the card, I adhered the fussy cut mug just above the sentiment and added a few enamel dots included in the Banana Split subscription.
My second card is from Collection Three: Fall Foliage. Another fabulous set of papers in this collection and they honestly made this card super quick!! I cut the gorgeous flourish paper at 4-1/4 x 4-1/2″ and popped it up on a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ piece of the yellow paper. I adhered those to a white card base and set them aside. I stamped the beautiful sunflower from the Thankful Floral stamp set by Trinity Stamps… such a gorgeous flower! I colored it in with the following Copic markers:
Flower ~ Y11, YR14, YR15, YR21, YR24, E25, E27
Leaves ~ YG01, YG03, YG63
I stamped the Thankful sentiment on a scrap of white card stock and trimmed it into a strip. I adhered it to the card and then adhered the sunflower using liquid glue on the top portion and some foam tape on the bottom since that flourish paper was popped up. To finish off the card, I added a few of the rich yellow enamel dots to the card and one sweet ladybug! Love it!!
My third card is from Collection Four: Woodland Critters. For this card, I used one of the fun sketches from the September 2019 FOTM Sketch Sheet. I cut all my pretty papers and adhered them to the Chocolate Brown card base. I die cut a medium sized circle of white card stock and blended a little Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide inks for my background. I popped up the circle die cut on the card using foam tape. I then set that aside and stamped the moose and snail images on a piece of white card stock. I colored those in with the following Copic markers:
Moose ~ E21, E23, E25, E27, W00, W2, W4, W5, N4
Snail ~ YG0000, YG01, YG03, YR15, YR21, YR24
I fussy cut these adorable Woodland Critters and adhered them to the little scene I created. I originally planned to make two cards with these critters but when I saw them together I just knew they would be the best of friends so I kept them together and stamped the Friends Forever sentiment on a scrap of white card stock. I trimmed it down to a banner and adhered it to the card using liquid glue and foam tape. To finish off this card, I wrapped the twine around the card and tied a bow.
My next five cards are from Collection One: Frightful Cuties. Now, this collection is absolutely my favorite of the whole kit… that’s kind of why I left it for last and also didn’t share the collections in order. The papers in this collection are too cute and the colors are awesome for Halloween! Love them! My first card features the adorable Scaredy Cat stamp by Sunny Studio Stamps that’s included in Collection One. I stamped the little kitty in the pumpkin along with the moon and stars using my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I knew I was going to die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die so I laid that on the white card stock to help guide me in positioning the stamps. I then colored in the images, as well as the background, with the following Copic markers:
Kitty ~ N0, N1, N2, N3, N5, R000, R20
Pumpkin ~ YR15, YR21, YR68, N0, N3, N5
Moon/Stars ~ Y06, Y11, Y35
Sky ~ BV000, BV00, BV20, BV23, BV25
Grass ~ YG03, YG17, YG23, YG67
Once I was done coloring, I die cut the panel and stamped the sentiment with VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed it with a fine white embossing powder. I adhered all of my layers to a Black Licorice card front measuring 5-1/2 x 4-1/4″ and then adhered that to a white card base from my stash. I punched out a piece of the spider web paper using a 1-1/2″ circle punch. I die cut the banner from the purple spider web paper. I adhered those two pieces together and then popped them up on the card using foam tape. To finish off this card, I added the fun stickers to the circle and one near the moon. So cute!
The next four cards were so quick and easy to make!! I used the adorable Kiddie Ephemera by Simple Stories that are included in Collection One… these little kids are just TOO cute!! I blended some Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink on a Stitched Arch STAX die cut piece cut from white card stock and adhered this adorable kid directly on it. I popped up the die cut on the card using foam tape. I added a few of the fun green enamel dots to finish up this card.
I used more of the fabulous papers from the kit with this little vampire!! I added foam tape to the little vampire, as well as the sentiment, and popped those up on the card.
I used more of those fabulous stickers on this card… it was absolutely perfect with this little witch. I blended a bit of Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink on the white die cut circle to make it look like she’s conjuring up some Halloween magic fun!! I then popped her up on the card to give her some dimension. Such a great way to add interest to a card!
My last card just might be my favorite! I had fun creating a little background with some purple skies and grey/black road… just like Halloween night! Or close to it anyway! I used a cloud stencil along with Wilted Violet, Hickory Smoke, and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks to create my background. I set that aside and adhered some more pretty papers to a Black Licorice card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ that I adhered to a white card base from my stash. I then die cut my background piece with a small stitched rectangle die and mat it with some Black Licorice card stock. By the way, I was actually out of Black Licorice card stock so that mat piece is actually from the card front piece that’s adhered to the card base… a neat little trick I sometimes use when my card stock becomes limited in supply. The ‘stolen’ piece of card stock is hidden by a layer of patterned papers so no one knows… well, unless you tell them! Lol! Back to the card… I adhered the background panel to the card and then popped up the little Trick or Treater with some foam squares. I then stamped the sentiment from the Scaredy Cat stamp set, trimmed it and mat it on literally my last little scrap of Black Licorice card stock… I definitely like the black card stock for Halloween cards this year!
Here’s a little look at all the Halloween cards together! So much fun!! I love this kit so much… there are still a few kits remaining!!
I’m sure that you have heard of the delays in the Design Team receiving the kits this month and mine was even more delayed because my family was on our annual Fall vacation. I got home late on Wednesday and was hoping to play with the card kit but there was yet another delay… a mix up with the post office and our held mail was not delivered. I finally received it yesterday and was able to get a couple cards made so let’s have a look, shall we?!
Knowing that my time was limited to get my DT post up and ready for the morning, I decided to focus on the wonderful Color In Cut A-parts by Photo Play that are included in Collection Four. I colored in the first Cut A-part using the following Copic markers ~ Y11, Y15, Y17, Y35, YR15, YR21, YR68, R14, R29, R59. I just adore this image!!
I trimmed down the Cut A-part and set it aside. I cut my layers for the card and adhered them to the Chocolate Brown card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″. I ran a piece of Tangy Orange card stock through my Big Shot with the Eyelet Elegance Rectangle die by Gina Marie Designs. I adhered the Cut A-part panel to the orange die cut piece and popped up the entire panel on the card with foam tape. To finish off the card I added a few of the gorgeous enamel dots also from Gina Marie Designs that are included in Collection Four.
Since I had the Cut A-parts on my desk and the Copic Markers, I decided to make another card with a similar design. I love how fast I was able to make these cards using these wonderful Cut A-parts!! I hope that you’ve enjoyed my cards and that I’ve inspired you to use these Cut A-parts from your kit.
Be on the lookout for more inspiration using the fabulous September 2019 Fall is Coming card kit!! I will have a couple more cards to share next week on my blog… Tawny Owl Paperie and also on my Instagram <— click on the links and be sure to follow me for more inspiration!!
Hello there crafty friends! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie sharing a sneak peek of the new August 2019 Flavor of the Month card kit… and I hope that you are prepared for another amazing card kit!! I am always in awe of the fabulous kits that Kim and Teresa put together for us to create with… so awesome!
One of my favorite collections in this month’s card kit includes this fabulous bird stamp and let me tell you… the papers in this gorgeous kit are Drop. Dead. Gorgeous!! I literally didn’t want to cut into them… lol… so I opted to use these beautiful foiled tags and a few other embellishments from the kit!! I did, however, cut into the papers and you’ll see what I created on Saturday when the kit is revealed and our hop is live!!!! Eeeep!! You’re going to love it!!
Back to these beautiful tags though… I had so much fun coloring this bird!! I stamped the bird twice on each tag and then again on scrap pieces of white card stock. I used the following copics for this tag ~ B0000, B00, B14, B24, YR0000, YR21, YR24, E0000, E00, E41, E43.
I also added some white gel pen to the eyes. I fussy cut the birds out and colored the edges of the fussy cut birds black with my Memento tuxedo black marker and then I adhered them to the tags. For the pink bird I used the following copic markers ~ RV0000, RV10, RV63, YR0000, YR21, YR24, E0000, E000, E41, E43.
I stamped the sentiment from the same collection omitting a portion of the sentiment (you can see a tiny bit of the omitted sentiment on the pink tag, but I’ll clean that up later with a sand eraser). I then added a strip of pretty gold glitter paper and then adhered the paper flowers. My final touch is some gold organza ribbon and twine jute… both from my stash (not included in the kit). Love how these turned out and I sure hope you’ve liked them too!
Hello there crafty friends! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with another card using the fabulous Fennec the Fox by Hero Arts… paired again with the awesome Kraft & Gold cardstock stack by DCWV!! I am loving this gorgeous desert inspired set and I just can’t help but use the kraft papers… it’s a perfect pairing of product!! Say that five times fast!! Lol!
My card design was inspired by a Sketch Saturday sketch from a couple of weeks ago and even though I’d miss the deadline to enter my card in the challenge, I still had to play with this sketch! I trimmed the polka dot foil kraft paper to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and adhered it a Vintage Cream A2 card base. I then trimmed a piece of Vintage Cream card stock down to 4 x 5-1/4″ and then ran it through my Big Shot with an oval die. I set those aside and then stamped and colored my images.
How awesome is that foil shining in the background?! Such amazing paper!!
Next, I stamped the sentiment on a strip of kraft card stock from the Kraft & Gold cardstock stack with VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed a fine white embossing powder. I die cut it with my favorite Everyday Sentiment Banner die by Lawn Fawn.
To finish off my card, I adhered my fussy cut images to the Vintage Cream layer and then I popped up the entire piece on the card using foam squares. I love the dimension the popped up layer gives to the card! The foxes in this beautiful set are so fun to color! I sure hope you’ve enjoyed my card today!
Thanks so much for checking out my DT blog post! See ya next time.
My card design today uses the fabulous sketch over at Mojo Monday Sketch challenge 520… only I turned the sketch on the side and moved the sentiment up to make my design work. I do love a good sketch! And this one was perfect for my card today!
Along with the fun Kraft & Gold papers I used the Fall Breeze papers from Photo Play… they coordinated beautifully! Since I knew I was doing a baby card, I chose the foiled hearts paper to adhere to my card base. I then used the Fall Breeze patterned papers and mat them on Lost Lagoon card stock from my stash. I die cut a cross stitched circle using the Large Cross Stitched Circle dies from Lawn Fawn and built my scene of stamped and colored images on the circle.
Here’s a close up of the little scene I created. I used the following Copic markers for my card:
I had so much fun with this sketch that I decided to do a second card…
This time I kept the sketch upright and used the sweet Koala Doodlepop for my focal image. I used Dark Chocolate and New Leaf card stock for my layers and of course, I had to use a bit more of the fabulous Kraft & Gold papers!! The sentiment is actually from the Critters Down Under set, however, it actually says ‘hoppy birthday’ so I changed the ‘o’ into an ‘a’ just using my Memento tuxedo black marker. Easy peasy!!
In the close up photo you can really see that beautiful shine in the gold foil stripes of the paper! Love it! Well, that’s it for me today… I sure hope that you’ve enjoyed my cards for today!
Thanks so much for stopping by to read my DT blog post! See ya next time.
My design was inspired by a challenge in a Facebook group that I am a member in called Paper Craft Artist. I just loved the CAS sketch and have been itching to play along. Once my images were colored, I fussy cut them out and touched up the edges with my Memento tuxedo black marker. I set them aside and grabbed the Kraft & Gold cardstock stack by DCWV. I just had to pair this sweet grinning fox with the heart papers… too cute together!!
I used the solid kraft paper for my base layer that I adhered to a A2 Vintage Cream card base and then I added a layer of Vintage Cream card stock measuring 4-1/8 x 5-3/8″. I die cut the heart foiled paper using a standard circle die and adhered it to my card.
I wanted to add some more purple into the card so I trimmed a 1/4″ strip of Elegant Eggplant card stock (for some reason it looks darker in the photos but it coordinates well with the purple flowers) and adhered it to the card, trimming off the excess on either side. I then popped up the happy fox using foam squares and adhered the flowers using a liquid glue. To finish off the card, I pulled out my Stamp Platform and I stamped the ‘Hello’ sentiment using Memento tuxedo black ink. I used my Stamp Platform so ensure that I got a nice crisp inked up sentiment… couldn’t take any chances with my CAS design! I sure love how this turned out!
Thanks so much for checking out my DT blog post today! See ya next time.
Hello there crafty friends! Crystal from Tawny Owl Paperie here with another look at the Happy Camper stamp set by Pink & Main. I’ve paired this adorable set again with the wonderful Galaxy Foil papers also by Pink & Main.
I can’t get enough of these Galaxy Foil papers!! They just make a card so quick and easy and those shiny stars are so much fun! Today, my design also includes a fun Campfire Sticker by Jolees… isn’t that fun?! It’s a pretty big sticker and I struggled a bit with what to do with it, but I think it makes for a fun card with this bear holding marshmallows getting ready to make some s’mores. It’s hard to tell in the picture but his little marshmallow on top is actually on fire… which I imagine with this huge campfire it would be!! I used the following Copic markers for the bear ~ E000, E33, E35, E37, YR15, R20, BG11, BG13, B95, B97
You can see some of the glittery goodness in the fire with this picture.
To finish off the card, I popped up the bear and the sentiment that was stamped with VersaMark watermark ink on black card stock and heat embossed an ultra fine white embossing powder.
Hope you enjoyed my card for today… but hold on, I have a bonus card!!
When I had created my card earlier this month using the Hootiful stamp set by Heffy Doodle… you can check out that card here —> Hootiful For You-Hoo card… I had stamped and colored a few extra images so I thought I’d use those for this super quick card. All I did for this card was blend some Chipped Sapphire distress ink directly on my white card base. I started blending in the center and worked my way out giving a nice fade to the color. Such a quick card and one that I can send a friend to wish them a hootiful day!!
Now that’s all for me today! I sure hope you liked my cards!
