It’s Sneak Peek Week!! How cute is this travel paper and this adorable girl on the scooter? This is a peek from Collection 2.
For this card I chose 2 pattern papers. The more colorful one I used as the main panel. I cut that with a stitched rectangle die. In the lower right hand corner I added another pattern paper which I cut with a mini scallop stitched circle die and trimmed off the excess.
When I started to put the card together, I realized the second pattern paper needed a mat to separate it from the more colorful piece. I grabbed black card stock for a mat and used my scissors to carefully follow the circle.
I used one of the sentiments from the stamp set found in collection 2 and stamped that on a stitched fishtail sentiment strip I had in my stash. I used a little Barn Door Distress Ink around the top, bottom and right side.
To finish the card, I added 3 small enamel dots from the card kit and a little Spectrum Noir Glitter Brush on the scooter.
Stay tuned all week for more sneak peeks and stay up late Friday for the full reveal at 12:00am Saturday, April 26.
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!
I’m also bringing in some distress ink and watercolor paper to do a little ink smooshing. I am using Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick and bring in little Peacock Feathers for some hearts.
First, I flipped through all the beautiful pattern papers to find the one I wanted to use. Once I chose a pattern, I used a stitched rectangle die to trim my panel.
Next, I took out my non-stick mat and smooshed down some Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I added some water and pressed down my watercolor piece. I did this again then repeated the step with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. I used a heat gun to dry the area and added hearts using the Distress Ink.
I stamped out the vacuum image from the stamp set with Copic friendly ink and colored the image with Copic markers. I then used the coordinating die to die cut the image. All that is left is putting the pieces together and adding some finishing touches!
