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.
Crystal here with a trio of cards using Lawn Fawn’s Lovable Legends stamp set! I thought it might be fun to share a trio of cards starting with a simple design and then building from that design to a slightly more involved card design.
My first card started with a simple stenciled background using the Echo Park Good Vibes Stripe stencil along with the Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink that I blended over the stencil. Once my background was done, I die cut it with a wonky rectangle die. I then cut a 1″ strip of the beautiful Watercolor Foil paper from Pink & Main and fussy cut the little flag end on one side. I adhered it to the panel and then trimmed off the excess.
I stamped the super cute sentiment directly on the panel and then adhered the entire panel to a white card base. I stamped the bigfoot character three times and decided for my card design… he’d be a cute yeti so I colored him very simply with the following Copic markers ~ N0, N1, N2, B0000, B00, Colorless Blender. I fussy cut my cute yeti and popped him up on the card.
So that is my first card design… pretty simple, right?! But still adorable!!
For my next card, to add a little somethin’ somethin’ and bring it up a step from simple, I decided to blend the background using distress oxide inks. I used Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. I then blended Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink over the same Good Vibes Stripe stencil that I used on the first card. I love the subtle stripes it made on the background! I die cut the panel with the same wonky rectangle die and adhered it directly on a white card base. I adhered a strip of the Watercolor Foil paper just like the first card, but this time I stamped the sentiments on scraps of white card stock. I used a banner die to cut out the ‘Have An’ sentiment and fussy cut the ‘Unbelievable Birthday’. I adhered both sentiments directly to the card. I popped up the cute yeti and to finish off this card I added a couple of trees that I stamped from the same set using green inks in my stash. I love how the Watercolor Foil paper breaks up the strips of the background and the foil in the paper adds a pretty shine for interest.
Are you ready for the third and final card… ?!
Whatcha think?! I’m a little partial to the background on this one because I love splatter!! I created the background the very same as the second card, but I added water and white acrylic paint splatters. I adhered the strip of Watercolor Foil paper and the top sentiment directly to the card, but I popped up the bottom sentiment using foam tape. I adhered more trees to surround Mr. Yeti… huh, just decided to name him… LOL! I also popped up the two trees on the far right. My final touch to finish this card was to add some random dots to the trees using a white gel pen… almost like snow falling on the trees from the splatter in the background.
Here’s a picture showing all of the cards together. I had a bunch of fun making these cards to share with you… I hope that you’ve enjoyed seeing the different steps in adding interest and dimension to the cards! I hope this inspires you to try different levels of cardmaking!!
I am here with another project for Scrapping for Less! Today we are featuring Lawn Fawn! The stamp set for today is called ‘So Jelly’ and we are adding the ‘Ocean Wave Accents’ die set! So many options available for a creative day from this stamp and die set! So let’s get started and celebrate under the sea!!!
I started with shades of blue card stock from my scrap pile and a die from my stash to cut them down in the shapes of the ocean. Next, I placed the Ocean Wave Accent Die around to get waves cut into my panels. I stamped the images using my Black Tuxedo Memento Ink since I knew I was going to color these with my alcohol markers.
After my images were colored I fussy cut them out and got them ready to play in the ocean! Now we always have to add shimmer of some type so out came the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen for cover my starfish and my dew drops made an appearance to add some bubbles!
