Get Well Soon

Hello! Today I have a very simple card that I want to share with you – a get well card with adorable stamps by Lawn Fawn:

For this card, I took the adhesive bandage from the stamp set On the Mend by Lawn Fawn and stamped it in Archival Ink (colour: Jet Black) onto a piece of watercolour paper. I coloured them with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens by Kuretake in the colours Carmine Red, Bright Yellow, Lemon Yellow, Light Green, and Light Blue. I, then, die-cut them with my co-ordinating dies in my Cuttlebug, a die-cutting machine.

For the background, I used Desert Storm paper by Neenah. I once again took the adhesive bandage stamp and stamped it across the paper, creating a patterned paper. I used Versamark ink, added clear embossing powder and heatset the powder with my heat tool.

I added foam tape to the back of the die-cut bandages and placed them onto the background, leaving a little space between the yellow and the green bandage for the sentiment. The sentiment, which is included in the stamp set On the Mend, was inked in Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder on a strip of pattern paper (Knock on Wood by Lawn Fawn).

The tiny heart was die-cut out of light pink cardstock with the smallest of Lawn Fawn’s Hearts dies. As a finishing touch I added glossy accents onto the heart.

I hope you enjoyed this card! And I hope you did not catch the flu this season.

You’re My Superhero

Hello! The past few weeks have been extremely stressful for me, so I am very happy that I finally found the time to make some cards again. Today’s card will feature the little girl superhero that I coloured for the “30 Day Colouring Challenge” by The Daily Marker.

I stamped the little girl from the My Favorite Things’ stamp set You’re Super in Memento Tuxedo Black, a Copic-friendly ink, on a piece of white cardstock. I coloured her with my Copic markers using the following colours:

  • skin: E95
  • hair: BG75, E27
  • cape: V06, C4
  • trousers: 100
  • belt: Y15, C4
  • boots: V06, BG72

I coloured her hair this way because that is the kind of hair I always wanted to have :-)

The city is also from the stamp set and was stamped with Archival Ink in colour Jet Black. I die-cut both images with their co-ordinating dies in my Cuttlebug, a die-cutting machine.

For the background, I used Distress Inks (colours: Black Soot, Seedless Preserves, Salty Ocean) and an ink blending tool to create the nightsky. Since Distress Inks react with water, I took advantage of this effect and created the stars by flicking some water onto the background.
I stamped the sentiment, which is also included in the stamp set, with Versamark ink. I put white embossing powder on it and heat embossed it with my heat tool.

For the ground, I took some pattern paper by Lawn Fawn (I believe this was from the 6×6 inches Let’s Polka in the Dark paper pack) and adhered the city and the girl superhero on it. The girl superhero was adhered with foam tape to make her stand out.

As you can see this was a fairly easy card to make. I really like how it turned out and I will make more of this… :-)

Thank you very much for stopping by! Hope to see you soon!

Elephant and Paper Planes

Hello! Today’s card will be quite similar to the Paper Planes card I posted earlier this month. Nevertheless, I think it is a cute card :-).

For the background of the card, I used the stencil Mini Cloud Edges by My Favorite Things and Distress Ink in colour Tumbled Glass.

The images are from the stamp sets Elphie Selfie and Flying By (both by Lawn Fawn) and are stamped in Archival Ink, a waterproof ink. I coloured the images using ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens by Kuretake and some water. If you are interested, the colours that I used are 041 Light Green and 047 May Green for the paper planes as well as 093 Green Gray and 028 Pale Pink for the elephant.
I then die-cut the images with their coordinating dies and my die-cutting machine, the Cuttlebug.

I arranged the images to make it look like the elephant is sending off the paper planes. The trails are drawn by hand using a Copic Multiliner (in the width 0.3mm). I noticed that I needed a ground for the elephant to stand on and so I cut a strip from pattern paper (Lawn Fawn’s paper pack Knock on Wood) and placed it on the bottom of the panel.

This ground was also the perfect place to stamp the sentiment. For this, I took the sentiment “Happy Birthday” from Lawn Fawn’s Happy Happy Happy stamp set and used Versamark ink. I applied some white embossing powder on it and heat embossed the powder until it was melted.

I adhered the elephant and the paper plane that he just threw in the air with foam tape onto the panel. This gives some dimension to the elements. The rest is adhered with regular liquid glue.

I hope you enjoyed this card. Here are some close-up pictures:

Pssst! Please don’t tell my husband that this will be his birthday card! :-)
