Stamp AnnieThing - Break in the park

vendredi 25 mai 2018

Hello there,

I'm so excited to share with you my first card using a stamp from Stamp AnnieThing. I didn't know this brand, I discovered it a few weeks ago but when I saw their gorgeous designs, I just couldn't help myself but order some supplies. So stay tuned for other projects using them! ^^

This first one is pretty simple, but when I saw this image I immediately pictures her in a park. And why not in Central Park given that I have a New York City skyline die?




So I first started by creating the background. And for that I masked three edges of a bristol panel and applied two shades of blue distress inks, making sure to put the darkest at the top. For more interest, I splattered water on top of it, and dried it with paper towel.

I attached the NYC skyline previously die cut from white cardstock using double sided foam tape for some dimension, and die cut two grass borders that I colored using green distress inks. Splattered them with water too, and attached them at the bottom of the skyline.




Stamped the image on neenah solar white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink, fussy cut it, and colored it using my spectrum noir markers. I took a sentiment from another Stamp AnnieThing set, and stamped it directly onto the background. Then I attached the image using foam squares, applied clear glitter to her scrunchies and added some clear drops here and there for final touch.

My Favorite Things - Sergent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

lundi 21 mai 2018

Hello there,

The other day I was browsing through my stash and I came across this stamp set. And seeing it, it hit me and I immediately saw the Beatles in their Sergent Pepper outfits. Right below is the picture I took for reference. I thought about adding hair and moustache to the critters but maybe it would have been too much LOL


So I first started by stamping my images on bristol smooth cardstock, then I colored them using my alcohol markers and fussy cut them.


Took another piece of bristol cardstock and die cut the four window front panel. Applied ink only on the small rectangles using various shades of distress inks.


On a white card base, I attached the four colores rectangles using the frame as a guide, and then attached the frame using foam squares. Next I built each little scene by gluing in place the images using glue dots.


Finally, I white heat embossed my sentiment on black cardstock and attached it in the middle of the panel.

Craftin Desert Divas - Tweet Wishes

samedi 19 mai 2018

Hi there,

I'm back to showcase a card I made using an oldie but goodie stamp set called "Birds of a feather" from Craftin Desert Divas. The wreath is also from an old die set called "Stitched in circle", and I thought it was just perfect for my bird to sit on.




First step was to use washi tape to mask some parts of my panel to create thick stripes. Then I simply applied two shades of pink distress inks, going light in the middle to dark on the edges. These colors were inspired by the CDD Mood Board Challenge on Facebook.




Before removing the washi tape, I splattered silver paint on the pink stipes to add more shine and more interest.




I stamped my sentiment on the bottom left corner of my panel, and then stamped my image on white cardstock, colored it using alcohol markers and fussy cut it.

I die cut three wreaths from white cardstock, glued them together to make one entire piece, and attached it on the right side of the panel. Before it adhered completely, I tucked the bird behind so his tail could hang behind the wreath, like it would normally do ^^ And I glued the body of the bird using foam squares.




Attached the panel to a white card base, applied clear glitter to the bird's crest and added clear drops here and there to finish the project.

Craftin Desert Divas - Flowers in Display

vendredi 18 mai 2018

Hello there,

Today I'm sharing with you another card I made using the gorgeous new "Kindness" stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas, and designed by my dear friend Anna. When I saw this set, I knew I wanted to try some alcohol marker coloring on kraft cardstock, so here it is ^^


I first started by stamping the image on kraft cardstock, then I colored it using my spectrum noir markers and finally fussy cut it. Then I cut my background panel from kraft cardstock, applied brown distress ink on the edges, and did the same thing on a small rectangle of wood pattern paper.


Die cut a scalloped rectangle from vellum, attached it to the kraft background, and glued the small rectangle and flowers on top of it to create the display. To finish the card, I glued my die cut sentiment above the flowers, and attached the panel to a kraft card base.

Summer Card - Summer Fun

mercredi 16 mai 2018

Hello there,

Spring has just arrived but isn't it nice to already think about summer and our future plans for this season? Well, mine will definitely include sun and ice cream, just like this cutie ^^



Usually I like to start with the background, but this time I knew it would be pretty simple so I went directly on coloring the images using my alcohol markers.

On a white card base, I glued pieces of colorful dot pattern paper, and then on top I attached a scalloped rectangle. I draw a shadow where I wanted to place my critter, and then glued both images using foam squares.



Stamped my sentiment on left side, added some colorful drops here and there, and applied glossy accents on the rubber ring to finish the card.
