Layer Die Shaker Card | #racismisaviruscardhop

Happy Hump Day! Welcome to the #racismisaviruscardhop! Please head over to naushabuloushandmade on Instagram to hop along.

I made a card inspired by my time in Vietnam (I need to share pictures of that, one day!)

I ink blended an A2 card panel with my Taylored Expression blending brushes and fired brick distress oxide ink. The I die cut the outline of the flower and leaf using the Layered Rose Die Set from Altenew. I die cut the details, along with the Thinking of You Script Die from golden glitter paper. I layered the die cut card front and added a LOT of foam tape to create the shaker window. Filled it with some older Pretty Pink Posh star sequins. Finished off my adding the glitter die cuts and some gold jewels.

This card was inspired by Ink Hill Revival. Thanks for always inspiring us!

Purple Peonies | Eating Disorder Awareness Hop

If you didn’t come here from my Instgram, make sure to head over there for a blog hope AND make sure to check out Candice’s post to see more details on the hop!

Before getting into the details of the card I wanted to take a minute to share some facts about Eating disorders, as that’s the point of this hop.

Eating Disorders are complex mental illnesses with physical manifestations. The myths and misconceptions surrounding these illnesses often serve to perpetuate the stigma that prevents so many folks from receiving life-saving support and treatment, so today we’re hopping along to raise awareness and hope for these very underserved (but prevalent) disorders.

Did you know? Many people with eating disorders don’t lose weight, and may actually gain weight as a result of their disorder.

To make this card, I started by stamping and coloring the largest image from Newtons Nook Designs Peony Blooms stamp set. I used copics in the follow combination : V12-15-17 and YG 01-03-06. Then I fussy cut it or you can use the coordinating die.

I embossed the Lattice Stencil from Pretty Pink Posh to create the background for the card. Then I added a rectangle scallop die cut, also from Pretty Pink Posh cut from purple paper. Lastly I added a sentiment from the simple sentiments stamp set on a black strip cut from the mama elephant quick strips die cut.

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to head over to Instagram to check out the hop!

Rainbow Shaped Cards | Paper Crafters Against Racism Instagram Hop

Happy Saturday y’all! Popping in quickly to share the details of cards that I just shared on Instagram.

To create these card I die cut the rainbow using the Rainbow Card Die from Ellen Hutson from heavy weight cardstock, making sure to cut the base twice. Then I ink blended the rainbow strips using Distress Oxide Inks (in festive berries, scattered straw, cracked pistachio, tumbled glass, shaded lilac). After assembling the rainbow, I scored a 1/4 inch of the second card base and used double sided tape to adhere it to the back of the rainbow. Lastly I added a sentiment from Simple Sayings: Kind Stamp Set, and sentiment die cut ‘Welcome Little One‘ and ‘Happy Birthday‘.

Happy Crafting!

Pretty Pink Posh, Stitched Cards

Half done Cards (1)

Happy September! Needed to take a break after a very productive August! 25 cards made, 26 mailed and 17 blogposts! This month I’m challenging myself to use all the colored images and background that never got made into cards!

My first completed card card uses a stitched background (unfortunately don’t remember the company/name of the die), along with a colored butterfly from the Beautiful Butterflies Stamp Set from Pretty Pink Posh.

To assemble the card I inked up a scrap piece of white paper with Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry distress oxide ink. Then I die cut is using the Happy Birthday to You Script Die from Pretty Pink Posh. I layered a piece of vellum under the die cut sentiment so it doesn’t blending into the background. Lastly I adhered the butterfly cutout using a little foam tape.

BRI Mood Board, Butterfly Reflections Ink, Pretty Pink Posh

Toucan card inspired by the August 2020 BRI mood board (with Pretty Pink Posh)

Whoa, looks who back again, twice on the same day! A friend recently mentioned to me that she is “stress hiking”, I think I am stress crafting/blogging, I set a goal for myself to make/share 31 cards in August, and I already have enough to share and there a few days left in the month! Now I have to sit down and write the posts! This is the last card I made inspired by the Butterfly Reflections Ink August mood board, can’t wait to see what is in store for next month!

This picture was inspired by both the colors and the images in the mood board and I wanted to give a “scene card” another try. Believe it or not, this stamp set is from last summer and I just inked it up, at least my plan of using my BRAND NEW stamps is going well! I probably have enough to last me years!

I started this card by diecutting the two frame dies from a slimline die set, along with windows on the smaller frame. Then I inked the edges of the larger frame with Twisted Citron, and along inking up the window opening using the Tropical Background Stencil. I lighting inked the inner frame with the windows using Broken China.

Next, I stamped all the images from the Tropical Toucans Stamp Set, and colored them using Chameleon Color Tone Colored Pencils (colors listed below), and die cut them using the coordinating dies. Using foam tape for added dimension, I adhered the toucans and the branches through the window opening on the inner frame. Lastly, I embossed a sentiment from the Everyday Greetings Stamp Set with white onto black cardstock, and trimmed to make it look like it was die cut!

Chameleon Color Tones Pencils : 3, 4, 11, 16, 19, 20, 21, 25

BRI Mood Board, Butterfly Reflections Ink, Pretty Pink Posh

Summer Floral card inspired by the August 2020 BRI mood board

Welcome back to the blog! Today I’m sharing another card inspired by the August BRI mood board. It’s a great way to get the creative juices flowing, and also challenging yourself to used different color combinations! I’ve also been challenging myself to use all my new stamps, so for this card I took out the Hibiscus Flowers from Pretty Pink Posh, I got this last summer!

For this card I started by stamping all the floral and leaves (multiple times) on copic friendly card stock. Then I copic colored (color combos listed below) and fussy cut the images (seems like I don’t have the dies!)

To assemble the card I started by stenciling part of the card front using the Tropical Background Stencil stencil and Fresh Ink in Island. I stamped the sentiment from Everyday Greetings Stamp Set using black ink and highlighted with a circle frame from the Beach Scene Die. Finally I adhered the flowers with some foam tape to add dimension and the leaves underneath them.

Copic combos : V 17 – 15 – BV 00, YG 06 – 03 – 00, R 39, Y 15

Acetate Birthday cards (with Joy Clair Designs)

Happy Wednesday y’all! Honestly I don’t even know why I bother trying to keep track of days/dates anymore! I hope y’all are having a productive week BUT taking breaks to try and enjoy the last days of summer! For the first time in years, I’m not looking forward to fall. The probability of no football doesn’t seem appealing anymore! But I guess there will be lots of crafty time! Today I’m sharing two birthday cards using the Make a Wish stamp set from Joy Clair Designs. Birthday and Thank you cards are my most used/made cards, what yours?

Assembling this card is a little tricky because of the extra acetate layer. So, today’s write up is going to be a little different, in an effort to make it clear so you can replicate it!

Firstly start off by resizing and printing the two border images from the Make a Wish stamp set, make sure the image is 4.5 inches wide. After coloring you can use a brother scan and cut if you have one, or fussy cut, like I did. Then I ink blended a A2 piece of paper in rainbow order using distress oxides, and die cut a Happy Birthday script sentiment from it. I stacked the die cut, using some scrap paper.

Now to assemble the card, you’ll need :
2 A2 white side folding cardbases, 2 pieces of 4.25 x 5 inch acetate scored at 4.25, double sided tape and liquid adhesive. Then :
1.  Add a strip of double sided tape to the short end of the scored acetate.
2. Adhere the acetate to the back of the A2 card front, on the open side, your card should now look similar to a gate fold card.
3. Add adhesive to the colored images from the Make a Wish stamp set and adhere them to the open side of the acetate, and trim the excess.
4. Lastly, stick on the sentiments to complete the card.
The extra step of using a A2 card base is to make sure that you have space to write a message! Make sure to check if you need extra postage when you put it in the mail!

Coloring Medium : Chameleon Color Tones Pencils
Copic Combos : B21-34, G12-21, R20-22, V22-25, Y11-21, YR15-12

BRI Mood Board, Butterfly Reflections Ink, Pretty Pink Posh

Birthday cards inspired by the August 2020 BRI mood board

Hey fellow crafters! Hope that you had a relaxing and crafty weekend! I spent most of mine working on these cards, challenging myself to use critter stamps! I have a huge collection from Pretty Pink Posh, most haven’t even gotten inky! Yes, working on using on ALL my stamps before buying more, failing miserably as I have stamps coming in the mail. But I have slowed down!

I was having a hard time finding a starting point, then came across this mood board from Butterfly Reflections Ink. Double challenge accepted as color palette isn’t my go to colors! And here’s what I came up with!

For the first card, I started by adhering the Birthday Background Stencil to a A2 piece of cardstock with some washi tape. Then I ink blended using Twisted Citron distress oxide ink, and added a layer of glitter gel. At this point take off the stencil and clean it off before the glitter hardens. Let the glitter paper dry for a few hours before assembling the card. I colored an image from the Party Friends Stamp Set, with copics, and diecut the happy birthday sentiment from some ink blended card stock (I used broken china). To assemble, I trimmed down the stenciled card front and adhered it to a blue A2 card front. Then I added the colored image using some foam tape and stacked the die cut sentiment to add dimension.

Copic Combos : Y 35 – 15 – 13, YR 18 – 15 – Y 15, V 15 – 12, BG 13 – 10, BG 05 – 10

For the second card, I started by inking a A2 piece of card stock with Twisted Citron distress oxide ink, then die cut it using the Birthday Frame Die from Pretty Pink Posh. I colored and die cut another image from Party Friends Stamp Set. To assemble the card, I ink blended the center of the card base with some Broken China Distress Oxide, then I adhered the frame, and the colored image with foam tape for dimension. Finally finished off with a small embossed sentiment on the image (because I forgot to plan for an image!)

Copic Combos : R 20, Y 13, V 12 – 15, BG 13, BG 05 – 10, C 1, B 32 – 34
