Sometimes Life Sucks – A Shaker card!

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to my blog. I have a shaker card to share with you today. I have used new TE  O-Fish-Ally Awesome stamp set and dies. This set is a new released just this month. I made this card along with the other release cards so that I can share later during the release month. I love the sentiments on this stamp set and I used my favourite sentiment out of all:)

I stamped all the images from the O-Fish-Ally Awesome stamp set using Oreo hybrid ink. This ink is great to use with copic markers as well as watercolor. I coloured the images using copic markers. Using the coordinating die set, I die cut them all out.

For the background, I used the new Set the Scene Wave Stencil also new from Taylored Expressions to brush Salt Water Taffy as well as Confetti Cake TE dye inks using Clarity brush. Then I stamped the panel with my favourite sentiment using Oreo hybrid ink and versamark ink on top to clear heat emboss the sentiment. I used MISTI to stamp the sentiments.

Below the sentiment, I glued the fish and whale images flush on the background panel. The ray fish I used foam adhesive for some dimension.

To make the shaker panel, I made a scalloped frame using the largest Inside Scallop rectangle die and Sugar Cube card panel. I adhered window acetate and foam adhesive to create the shaker box. I added a dew sequins and beads inside and adhered the shaker frame on the background panel.

On top of the shaker box, I adhered the octupus and the seal using glue flush to the acetate. Finally adhered the shaker box on a Salt Water Taffy card base.

All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.

#missingyou!

Hey everyone, I have a very trendy card to share with you today. While I have been working with a lot of floral and fona cards lately and enjoying it. I decided I wanted to do something totally different. Something trendy. After browsing through my Winnie & Walter stash, I pick an older stamp set to play with. This set is one of my all time favourite of Winnie & Walter. This set is called The Write Stuff: Picture Perfect! 

Here is card using this stamp set.

I wanted the card to be light, fresh and trendy. So picked pastel colours from Altenew. I used Pink Pearl, Pink Diamond and Sun Kissed altenew inks for the frame on the background. Then I stamped the camera using black ink and coloured the imaged using Polychromos pencils in pasted blue. Then I hand cut the camera image and adhered on centre bottom of the stamped frames.

The sentiment from the stamp set I stamped them randomly around the frame. On the camera I stamped the sentiment from The Big, the Bold and Friends. The hashtag sentiment is also from The Big , the Bold and Friends. The hashtag and ampersand are from The Write Stuff: Picture Perfect.

I added glossy accents on the camera and Nuvo jewel drops around the camera on the panel. The trimmed panel is adhered on a pastel pink card base.

Love the colours on this card and how this card turned out. All supplies used to make this card are listed below for you.

#justforyou!

Hey everyone, Welcome back to my blog.

After colouring and playing with alcohol inks for past few days. I decided I want to go back to basics and do some stamping. Its good to always revisit basics. I am a stamper by heart and stamping brings me great joy! So I just picked a stamp set from Altenew and did just that 🙂

I have gone for a one layer card except for the enamel dots. And my stamping has layers. Two kind of layering. First one is using layered stamps and the other is layering the stamped images both of which give depth to the images and the card front. Depth is especially important for one layer cards otherwise it will look very flat and meh. So here is my card.

The stamp set I have used here is called Parrot Paradise from Altenew. I love the tropical foliages in this stamp set. And they have layers. Lovely. I also used Altenew inks to stamp the images. The inks I have used are Green Meadows, Green Fields, Tropical Forest and Sea Shore. I also used Coral Bliss to add colour to the greenery. I used MISTI to stamp the images.

I love using hashtags for sentiment for some reason. So I used the sentiment from Painted Greetings stamp set to stamp the sentiment in the middle of the card front.

Love the stationery look to the card. I still felt the card need something more. I wanted to add Nuvo crystal drops but I just could not get it work. My crystal drops are all thicker and leave pointy tips.The jewel drops are great and the white is awesome. But for some reason the crystal drops does not seem to work for me to get that dome shape. So I used doodlebug’s sprinkles. These enamel dots have sparkle on them. I used pink sprinkles on the card to add another pop of colour. All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.
