Colorful Rainbow cards to share today…

Hi everyone!  Two clean and simple cards I made for stamp club last Friday.  Annette had the program and she had rainbow for the theme.  These are the two cards I made…one to swap and one for Annette’s birthday card.

I used the poppystamps paintbrush die, colored with Copic Sketch Markers, a Taylored Expressions brush rubber stamp, You color my world is from a new poppystamps stamp set, inked with Versafine Black Onyx ink and stamped with the MISTI.  I stamped the brush stamp with Regular Distress Inks.  I centered the stamp on the lid of the MISTI and moved the card to stamp the different colors.  I did stamp each color two and three times to get the bold color.

Both cards are A2 top folding card bases, almost one layer!

The bike is a new Spellbinders die cut in heavy white card-stock…run it through with the tan mat a second time so it embosses nicely.

The street and the stitched rectangle are from a MFT blueprints die set, the butterflies are an old Marvy punch…sorry I didn’t have time to look for a die but I’ll see if I can find something similar to link to and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

Thanks for stopping by on this fine Tuesday!  I’ll be back soon with more of you know what! lol  Have a creative, colorful week!

Addicted To CAS Challenge – One Layer Card…

I’m so excited to be a guest designer over on the Addicted to CAS Challenge blog today! I love CAS, coloring and dies so I really enjoyed this! Thank you for having me ladies!

The challenge this week is One Layer!  I hope you’ll join us!

 

I decided to make a one layer die cut inlay card using My Favorite Things Beach Scene Builder Die-namics set and Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies.  All the pieces are cut from an A2 size white card-stock panel, inked with Distress ink and the ink blending tools, fit together like a puzzle, taped together on the back and adhered to an A2 card base.

 

I did go back in with Distress Markers to accent the embossed lines of the Palm Tree die cut.

The sentiment is from Printworks Collection E4730 Escape the Ordinary.  If you love beach images…you have to see what all PW has…lots of fun images and sentiments.  Check out the releases HERE.

The cutie little crab is from Lawn Fawn Palm Trees die set. I die cut two and glued them together at the very tip of it’s claws.  Pretty cute little photo prop! hehe

Linking my card to some other challenges…

Memory Box Graceful Cattails, Dragonfly Stems and Tall Grassy Stems Corners…

Monday greetings everyone! Back with a masculine birthday card…very Summer-ish!

I had fun playing with the Distress Oxide inks again on Mixed Media card-stock.  I blended the ink on with the ink blending tool and then spritzed it with a mister bottle of water.

At first I didn’t like it so it’s taken me a few weeks to finish this.  I’m glad I persevered! lol  Always nice to have a man card in the stash!

I used the following dies…the Dragonfly Stems Corners are layered on top of the Grassy Stems Corners.

Graceful Cattails

Dragonfly Stems Left Corner

Tall Grassy Stems Left Corner

Dragonfly Stems Right Corner

Tall Grassy Stems Right Corner

Scribble Happy Birthday

I die cut everything from Mixed Media Card-stock and colored them except for the happy birthday sentiment.  I cut it from black 2mm craft foam and black card-stock. I glued the card-stock cuts to the foam and then glued them to the card after I assembled all the scene pieces.

This ended up a little over a 5 ½ inch square card. I get my square envelopes HERE.

MFT Birdie Brown Party Like a Pirate Birthday Card…

I think I know what they mean by the lazy days of Summer…you feelin’ it? hehe

This birthday card was for Jace, Rogan’s big brother, turned 7!  This pirate looks like him too… a ginger that loves baseball! I used the matching die set to cut the pieces.

I love it that Torico had this card in one of the MFT release classes, I just had to make it! There’s a pdf file and photos on the MFT website.

I used different card-stock for coloring this time and kept forgetting that it bleeds…so excuse the bloody mess here and there! lol

I colored the water, land and tree with Distress Oxide inks.  The sky with the MFT cloud stencil and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

oh, the wave cuts in the water are a Lawn Fawn die

Torico’s images are so fun to color!  Four more birthday cards to share and then I’ll get back to some die cutting and yes, CHRISTMAS!

Stopping to say “HI” CAS card today with Lawn Fawn…

Hi everyone…doesn’t this just make you want to run out and get a watermelon?!  Fortunately Tim already stopped and bought one this week so we’re set!

I used the Lawn Fawn alphabet die set Quinn’s Capital ABC’s.  I die cut it in white Bazzil texture cardstock, removed the letters H and I and inked them with Distress Inks and the ink blending tool.  Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries were the pads I used.  I added the seeds with a Ranger Fude Ball Black ink pen.

I adhered the die cut panel to an A2 top folding card base, then I adhered the watermelon HI with mounting tape.  Happy Card!  Well, until I sent my husband a picture of the card and he replied, “why is the w upside down”?  So I might think twice before I send him a picture again! haha  This was my Summer swap card for stamp club yesterday.

Diorama card with Memory Box Lavender Butterfly dies…

Hi and how did it get to be Friday already?!  This week has been so mixed up! hoho holidays!   I have a card that I started a few weeks ago…made a prototype first and then neglected to keep after it!  It’s finished now though! yay and I like it!

The very background/back is Ranger Distress Oxide ink ink blended in 4 colors, Peeled Paint, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick….can’t stop using these inks! haha  New colors coming…can’t wait… SLS has them coming too…check her coming soon category…first one on the left.

Everything is cut from XL watercolor paper, colored with Ranger Distress Markers and a waterbrush. Marker colors I used are Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade.  Very fun… I do like these markers for watercoloring…along with every other kind of medium! lol  We’re doomed to own everything aren’t we?!

Here’s the dies I used to create the foliage and butterfly scene…

front to back on the left…
Small Lavender Stems Left Corner
Lavender Butterfly Left Corner
Lavender Stems Left Corner

in the middle…
Lavender Bunch

on the front top…
the largest butterfly from the Leavenworth Butterfly Trio

front to back on the right…
Small Lavender Stems Right Corner
Large Lavender Butterfly Right Corner
Small Lavender Butterfly Right Corner

I’ve made this type of card before and just go off the top of my head…I’m bad about that.  It will fold flat and fit in an A7 envelope.  I am conscious of envelope size whenever I’m making something out of the ordinary though.

I die cut the rectangles, all the same size with the Memory Box Rectangle Basics Rectangle die set in three pieces of watercolor paper. ’bout can’t make a card without them!  😀  I did all the same size rectangle but you could easy do larger to smaller for a tunnel type card…I see your minds racing with ideas! lol

Then just score the ends and trim then to layer inside the front and back  pieces,  I did ¼ inch increments.  Sides of the front and back are scored at ¾ inch.

poppystamps Flower Patch card and Memory Box Poppy card…


Good Monday to you! I have a couple cards to share with you today…flowers again! Just thinking of you and thank you wishes.

I started with the poppystamps Flower Patch stamp and die set…the leaves are stamped on watercolor paper and colored in with Distress Inks.  I stamp, die cut, then color the images.

The flowers are stamped with the MISTI stamping tool on white card-stock with Altenew inks then die cut..

I die cut a Square Basics square die and lightly ink blended on some Broken China and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide inks. I read this morning that there are 12 more colors of Oxides coming soon!  oh no, make room for more!  help! lol

I die cut the next size up Square Basics die in an olive green-ish card-stock and matted the inked square on it.

The sentiment is from the So Many Things to Love stamp set. I stamped it with the MISTI stamping tool onto white cardstock, then die cut it with the smallest Rectangle Basics die.

I mounted the panel with craft foam to a 5 ½ inch square card-base.

 

Next up…Memory Box famous Poppy dies!

Here I combined the Tall Poppy Right Corner, the Tall Poppy Left Corner with the older Prim Poppy in the center.  I die cut in white card-stock and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers. (Dick Blick link in sidebar)


I die cut white card-stock with the Shaker Rectangle Frames, put strips of mounting tape behind the frame.

The center cut from the die, I ink blended on some Fozzilized Amber Distress Oxide ink and spattered it with water droplets.

I glued the corners behind the frame and the stems are glued directly to the panel.  The poppy heads have the thin mounting squares behind them to give a little dimension.

The Thank You Manuscript die is cut three dies, glued together and glued to the front over the stems.

A little bit of Doodlebug Washi tape on the left side of an A2 card-base, just cuz I like/love black and white stripes! hehe

I’m linking my poppy card to some challenges…
