Hugs & Kisses

Hi crafty friends!

I recently bought some new dies from Poppy Stamps and here is the CAS card I made this morning!

I used the Samba Heart Border die for the small hearts and colored the bigger heart (Hanging Heart die) with a red Copic Marker. Because the small hearts are white and don't have much contrast, I added some small rhinestones between them.

The sentiment is from Avery Elle and is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.

Happy Holidays

Hi all! I hope you all had a great weekend!

I made this card yesterday with all Uniko stamps.

First I stamped the big flower with Altenew ink and cut it out by hand.
I used the same colors to stamp the leaves for the background.

Next I altered the background to the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #419 and adhered it to a colored card which I then adhered to the card base.

For the flower and the sentiment I used foam squares to create some dimension.

Fresh CAS card

Happy Saturday!

Today I made a card based on the sketch of Fusion, the colors of the Inspired By challenge and the topping of Seize The Birthday.
With this winter weather and almost no sun, I long for the summer so I made a fresh CAS card.

CAS birthday card with Uniko stamps

Hi everyone!

Here I have a new card ready based on a couple of challenges.




I stamped the heart shape from Uniko with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and made a mask with the coordinating dies. This way I could blend the inside with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink.

Next I colored the florals and leaves with Copic Markers.

Finally I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Smiles For You

Hi there!

Thanks for popping in to take a look at today's card!

I first made a background for the feathers on some watercolor paper with Blue Blitz Nuvo Shimmer Powder but it was to monotonous. So I mixed Storm Cloud Nuvo Shimmer Powder with it until I was happy with the result.
Then I used Feather Fun dies from Your Next Stamp to die cut the feathers out of this background. I love the shimmery look they have!

Next I created the gradient background for my card with Altenew watercolors.
For the square I used the Square Peek-a-Boo Window die from MFT.

The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp's Happy Dance and is heat set with white embossing powder.

Clematis Birthday Card

Happy Saturday,

I created this card based on the sketch challenge over at Create A Smile stamps.

I first made a mask and stamped the flowers with Memento Tuxedo Black. Then I colored these flowers with Copic Markers.

Next I used the Classy Stripes stencil from Altenew and also used Memento Tuxedo Black to color the stripes.

The 'Happy' sentiment is stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The 'Birthday' sentiment is die cut and stacked several times to create some dimension.

Shaped Flower Card

Hi all!

I have a new card to share with you which is actually a shaped card.

I first wanted to make a card where I did some partial die cutting like Jennifer Mc Guire did here.
But then I found this Cattleya stamp set from Altenew and I decided to cut the edge out by hand.
To create the stenciled part I used a mask for the flowers and used the Sketched Lines stencil from Altenew and Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxide ink.

The sentiment is from Altenew's Playful Blooms stamp set.
