Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde, I am so glad you could stop in for a quick peek at what is in store for this month’s Flavor of the Month card kit. The papers create a perfect starry night and this little snowman looks like he’s definitely making a wish.
After stamping the image out in Gina K. black amalgam ink I colored it in with Copic markers doing my best to create a night sky. I colored over the stars in the image because I knew I wanted to use the stars from the sequin collection I received in the collection to place where the stamped stars are. Finished the card off with one of the sentiments from the stamp set stamping it in VersaFine majestic blue ink.
I am so looking forward to seeing the rest of the cards/projects that the design team comes up with using this month’s card kit! Make sure to join us this weekend for the full hop and thanks again for stopping in.
The cloud background was created using Salty Ocean Distress Oxides ink and LF’s cloud stencil. The background was created using all my scraps left from making cards.
Thank you so much for stopping in to see what’s on the blog today. I’ll be back next Thursday with more cards from another collection out of the April Flavor of the Month kit. I am using a different collection each week, I hope you will join me then for some more inspiration.
Hi crafty friends! Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde with a fairy fun shaker card to show off SFL’s new release! (Sorry I couldn’t help myself.) Shaker cards are fun, versatile and add a little something out of your ordinary everyday card. Over the years I have watched many videos of how to make them, different methods and tricks. Every time I sit down to make a shaker card I feel like I’m learning for the first time. I will say this card might be the one I had the least amount of trouble with but please note the trouble is mine not in the technique itself. It’s actually a very simple process I just struggle with it for some strange reason. I have to take each step slowly so that I don’t glue the wrong pieces together. I was so happy with the way it turned out!
Here’s a quick run down of what I did:
stamped sentiment on the clear acetate sheet (after hitting it with an Embossing Magic Pad so the embossing powder wouldn’t cling where I didn’t want it to) with VersaFine black onyx ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder
the image from Winter Fairies by SFLwas stamped with Memento black ink then was colored with Prismacolor pencils & maybe Derwent inktense pencils (I keep them in the same case and when I’m coloring I am usually just looking for the right color not which brand)
fussy cutted out the image and then went around the edges with a Memento marker in black ink (gives it a finished look even if your edges are a little rough)
Above I’ve included the links on the pics for the individual products or you can click the pic below where I’ve included the link to get the bundle.
Thank you so much for stopping in today and checking out the blog! Take some time and look around the other design team members have done some really great work with this release. No such thing as too much inspiration right?
