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”
Fall is my favorite season! Living in Florida it’s not because of the weather, although if you’ve lived in Florida long enough you do notice a change in the air but it just doesn’t qualify as a season for us. What I love about Fall are the decorations, the colors, the changing leaves (pictures mostly), the flavors and for me personally the reminder that the holidays are on the way.
While making this card I remember being downright giddy because when it comes to kid’s clothing ALL colors come in to play! Bright, fun, funky and I was so excited to get to work on these images. Recently when it’s time to color people images I make a concerted effort to not make them all the same. I am intimidated when it comes to coloring different ethnicities but I have a big desire to do so. That of course means practice, practice, practice and being brave when choosing colors I may not be used to blending. So I held my breath just a bit and stepped out of my comfort zone and I am so glad I did!
I love this Fall Kiddos stamp set from Sunny Studio, this is the second card and post I am doing with this set, really great images! These kids look like they are just having the most fun day and exude happiness. I cannot wait to send this card to someone I love. I’ve been a bit chatty in this post so I will give you a quick run down for what I did with this card:
used Doodlebug Design Flea Market 6×6 paper pad for background. The flowered pattern is 5 1/4″ x 3 1/2″, the cloud paper is 5 1/4″ x 1 1/2″, and the 2 strips of orange paper with the leaves pattern on it is 5 1/4″ x 1/2″, the card base I put it on and what became the frame for this little scene is 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored and folded at 5 1/2″ to create this landscape card
Kim here with one of the sweetest stamp sets from Sunny Studio Stamps, Fall Kiddos. I had so much fun coloring up these little guys and gals. I stamped out all the images using Lawn Fawn ink in jet black which is alcohol marker friendly. Then I got busy coloring with my Copics.
I really thought all of my characters were going to go on the card until I started putting everyone in place and realized that just wouldn’t work unless I made them stand on each other and they needed room to jump and throw leaves! I picked out a few for this card and set my other little kiddos aside for another time. Once I got knew where I wanted them to go I was able to position my sentiment which I then stamped in Versafine Ink black onyx, used clear embossing powder on and heat set. (I even remembered to use powder buddy so the embossing powder wouldn’t stick where I didn’t want it, go me!)
It needed one more thing so I got out the fluffy cloud dies from Sunny Studio Stamps, cut out some clouds, inked them up just a bit with tumbled glass distress oxide ink and my sky came together. Added some bling with a Spectrum Noir sparkle marker in clear and adhered it to a card base using Lawn Fawn glue tube.
I just love the sentiment on this card from the Fall Kiddos stamp set and completely agree that playing is NEVER wasted time.
Thank you so much for stopping in and spending some time with us today. I hope you are able to find some time to play today.
With this set alone you can create cards that celebrate Fall, Christmas, Winter, even Valentine’s Day. You can make a thank you card, a friend card, or a card for your love. I chose to make a card that doesn’t really need a category because I didn’t have anyone in mind when creating it. I just wanted to make something cute and Fall looking to add to my stash. I started off a bit intimidated with the thought of having to line up the inside of the mug but I need not be concerned because it was a breeze! I’m going to give you a quick run down of what I did in creating this card:
a bit of bling was added using Spectrum Noir Sparkle marker in clear
I pulled the patterned paper from my stash and I cannot remember the name of the collection but I do know it is from Doodlebug.
So that’s my card for today! I had fun making it while hanging out with the hubby and watching Netflix.Thank you so much for taking a peek at what I’ve been up to and I hope you have a fantastic day! I encourage you to take some time for yourself and make something!
Hello Crafty Friends! Tina here from Cards and Coffee Time. Today I have a fun Thank you card to share with you using the adorable “Hey Pretty Kitty” Stamp set from The Greeting Farm. I have a few furry friends myself and just loved the fun images with the cute kitties. I think this stamp set would be great for planners as well:) For my card I created a background with a few Distress Oxide inks, Vintage Photo (main panel), Fossilized Amber and Worn Lipstick. I colored my little gal in with my copic markers and stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. I hope you like it! This stamp set is available at the SFL Shop, be sure and check it out!! Wishing you a Lovely and Crafty Day! Hugs, Tina
