Hello, crafty peeps! Today I am sharing a card I created for Valentines Day using MY VERY FIRST STAMP by Inkadinkado. I remember looking at this stamp 2 years ago thinking, ” What I am supposed to do with it.” This time around I did better with it by implementing all the coloring tips I learned from The Daily Marker creator Kathy.
I colored the hearts with Copics and added details with Gelly Roll pen. Shadowing with C2 marker made the images pop a little! I cut out the hearts with an unbranded stamp die and adhered it to the card base. A bit of ribbon and a few stamp images by Lawn Fawn, and the card is finished. I am totally surprised by the results.
Thank you for stopping by; looking forward to seeing the projects created by my new crafty buddies!
Good morning, crafters! I am on my blog today to share a water coloring project that I have created for #thedailymarker30 challenge that is taking place on Instagram right now.
I have water colored with distress inks for a while, however I felt that I did better with a distress ink blending technique. I decided to give water coloring another try since I got My Favorite Things Roses All Over background stamp for Christmas (Santa has been so good to me). So many beautiful cards have been created using this stamp: it is perfect for many techniques and occasions.
I slightly wet my paper and applied distress inks with a brush in no particular order. The distress inks blend so beautifully, however watch out for color running if your paper is too wet. Dab access water with a paper towel. I wanted my card to be colorful so I went with a selection of rainbow colors. I shaded some areas with Prisma Color pencils and added dots with a gold gel pen.
The technique of inlaying die cuts is popular right now, and the results are stunning. I cut YOU with one of the dies from You Trio by My Favorite Things 4 times, glued them together, and then in laid them onto the card panel. I heat embossed a sentiment from All About You stamp set by My Favorite Things on a flag die cut. Adding a few sequins made the card a little bit more festive.
I hope I inspired you to color with distress inks and create your own project. Coloring with this medium is a little bit unpredictable, and you will end up with a surprise result every time. Try adding details with gel pens and pencils on hand ( I learned these tips from TheDailyMarker.com). Create a card today and share it with the wonderful crafting community!
Hello, friends! Crafting community is the best, I connected with so many amazing crafters over FB and Instagram via groups and posts. My new Instagram friend sent me a beautiful card for Christmas, and I am returning the favor. I laid out some new stamp sets that I bought last year, and picked out Enveloper Choice stamp set by Waffle Flower. The lion and cat images really capture your eye, and are so unique!
I wanted to get away from A2 format while making this project: a square card seemed appropriate, as it would allow centering the image. I used the largest scalloped square die out of Stampin’ Up Squares Collection Framelits set to create a card base out of Neenah Solar White 80 LB cardstock. I die cut two scalloped squares, scored one at the top, and adhered them together to form a card base. Then I thought of the Neat and Tangled blue sequin mix that would match the Indigo ink: a shaker card it is! I double stamped the lion with Indigo Ink by Stampin’ Up. I Googled the complementary colors and found out that yellow is complementary to Indigo. I die cut the frame with Stampin’ Up squares and stenciled it with Drawn Hearts stencil by Simon Says Stamp, using several shades of yellow distress inks.
I assembled the shaker using strips of craft foam, a piece of transparent window sheet, Starry Night Sequin mix by Neat and Tangled, and Glossy Accents as an adhesive, and glued it to the card base with a tape runner. I added a gold hello die cut by Simon Says Stamp.
I hope you have had a productive crafty weekend. Thanks for visiting my blog: make a hello card for a friend or a family member who was kind to you lately.
