Hello! I have a quick and simple yet, in my opinion, powerful encouragement card for you today:
The focal image are the hugging bears from the stamp set Happy Hugs by Clearly Besotted. I stamped the bears in Archival Jet Black ink onto a 4×4 inch piece of watercolour cardstock. I coloured the bears with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens. The colours I chose are 060 Brown and 065 Mid Brown. I, then, used Drawing Gum Liquid Frisket by Pebeo to mask off the image, so I could work on the background.
After the drawing gum had dried, I made the background with Distess Inks: using the stencil Radiating Rays by My Favorite Things, I applied Distress Inks in the colours Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber to make the sun. The ground on which the bears are standing was created using the colour Peeled Paint. After the background was finished, I rubbed the drawing gum gently away. I mounted the panel onto a black cardbase that measures 4.25 x 4.25 inches (unfolded) using regular glue.
The sentiment is German and is from the stamp set Ich bin hier by Klartext-Stempel (Dani Peuss). It literally translates to “If you need me, I am here”. It was also stamped in Archival Jet Black ink to match the focal image.
Using the other hugging critters from the stamp set Happy Hugs, I will make more cards similar to this one.
I hope you like this card! Thank you for stopping by!
Hello! I have decided to enter a second card in the current Lawn Fawnatics challenge #28 (according to the rules, participants are allowed up to four entries per challenge). My first entry for challenge #28 was quite dark (colourwise), so I wanted to make another card using happy and bright colours:
Using the largest of the Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Rectangles-dies, I die-cut a panel out of the teal / turquoise paper from the Knock On Wood paper collection. With the second biggest rectangle, I die-cut another panel from regular white cardstock. Finally, I die-cut one of the Puffy Star Stackables-dies from the Really Rainbow paper collection.
On white cardstock, I stamped the unicorn from the set Critters Ever After in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with my Copic Markers. I, then, die-cut the unicorn with its coordinating die.
I adhered the panels together using liquid glue. The unicorn was added with foam tape to make it stand out. The cardbase is a US standard sized cardbase, measuring 4.25 x 5.5 inches.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set as the unicorn and was also stamped in Tuxedo Black ink.
As a finishing touch, I added some glitter with my Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the unicorn and adhered some sequins to the card.
I hope you like this card. Thank you for stopping by!
It’s been soooo long but I have finally found the time again: I am participating in the Lawn Fawnatics Challenges again. Whoohoo! (My last entry in the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge was in August 2017 with this colourful card). Challenge #28 is a card sketch challenge and here is the card I am entering:
From the largest of the Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Rectangles-dies, I die-cut a panel out of black cardstock. Using the second biggest rectangle, I die-cut another panel from dark blue paper of Lawn Fawn’s Pint-Sized Patterns paper collection. From the same paper collection, I die-cut one of the Puffy Star Stackables-dies.
On white cardstock, I stamped the little bunny and the little fox from the Upon A Star stamp set by Lawn Fawn and coloured them with my Copic markers. I only did some simple colouring and no blending as the images are quite small. The colours I used are: W02 for the bunny and YR18 for the fox.
The sentiment, which is from the same stamp set, was stamped in Versamark ink onto black cardstock. I then poured white embossing powder over it and heat-set it with my heat gun.
On the star that I die-cut earlier, I stamped the heart constellation, which is also from the Upon A Star stamp set, in Versamark ink to heat emboss it like the sentiment.
I adhered everything together using liquid glue. Only the critters were added with foam tape to make them stand out. The panel was then adhered onto a US standard sized cardbase (4.25 x 5.5 inch).
I had a lot of fun making this card! I hope you like it, too!
Thank you for stopping by! See you soon!
