This is a 5 1/2 inch square card. I used a die to cut for squares to make the window from a piece of pattern paper from the Santa’s Workshop paper pad cut to 5 1/2 inches, then I made a template of curtains, traced it onto a different piece of pattern paper and cut it out. I adhered the curtains to the window frame.
I then used a solid blue piece from the paper to use as the background. I stamped all of the images for both cards from the “Merry and Bright” stamp set, colored them with alcohol markers, and cut them out with my Scan N Cut.
Next, I adhered the images to the blue panel and checked on placement every now and then by holding the window frame piece over it. Once I had everything in place I adhered the back panel to the card base and then adhered the front panel to that.
To finish it off I stamped the sentiment onto a white strip of paper and fishtailed the ends, then colored it in, popped it up with some fun foam and adhered it to the center of the card.
My second card is also a 5 1/2 inch square but I made a little differently, I used an SVG file and card out the card base and curtain, then I adhered a piece of acetate to the window frame, I ran the curtain through my Big Kick using the Carta Bella embossing folder “Ogee” to give it some dimension, and then adhered it to the window panel.
I glued a panel that I made by using a technique with Copic markers and rubbing alcohol, glued all the images down and then decided I didn’t like it. So I cut the front panel off and the back of the card with the panel down to about 5 1/4 inches and adhered both to the front of a 5 1/2 inch square card base.
Then I decided I didn’t like the white window frame so I colored it with Copic markers. To finish it off I stamped the sentiment onto a white strip of paper and fishtailed the ends, then colored it in, popped it up with some fun foam and adhered it to the center of the card.
Hey guys. I can’t seem to get enough of the stamp set by The Greeting Farm from the latest Flavor of the Month Kit.
I decided to try some no-line coloring with the image this time. I stamped the image onto Neenah Solar White card stock with a light colored ink and colored it with my Copic Markers. I used a Copic safe pen to draw in her eyes and mouth and created a shadow under her. I used some of the pattern paper to create a border of the left side of the card and adhered everything together. Nice and simple.
No-line coloring can be sooo scary but I have been practicing a lot and I am really loving the look of it!
I hope you will give it a try. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a creative and crafty day!
I am here with yet another project for Scrapping for Less! Featuring Pink and Main – Fired Up! Stamp Set. Dragons are still hanging around celebrating! This time it is for a new arrival to the family!
I used Archival Jet Black Ink to stamp all my images and colored them using my Faber Castel Polychromos. Added a touch of Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide with my Nuvo Blender Brush to help highlight the sentiment.
For the presents I used my white gel pen to add some doodle patterns to help break them up a little bit.
